At the elite boarding school Myoujou Academy, there exists the special "Class Black." Disguised as a normal class, it serves one purpose: assassination. At the center of Class Black, one student is the target while the others are assassins who are all itching to make the kill. The student who successfully assassinates them will have any wish of theirs granted, but they only have one chance to do so; expulsion awaits those who miss their mark.

Azuma Tokaku, an apathetic assassin-in-training, finds herself transferred to the latest Class Black with 12 other girls. One girl sticks out from the rest—Haru Ichinose, a cheerful girl who is idealistically insistent on making friends and graduating. To little surprise, the students discover that Haru is indeed the target and begin to plan their assassination. However, Azuma feels a growing fondness for Haru and is drawn to a different course of action. Now, for the first time in her life, she has found a cause to fight for.

Akuma No Riddle. One of the manga that had horrible anime adaptation (I personally could say that the anime is really terrible, but still watchable.) After watching the anime for quite some time, I decided to read the manga hoping it would be better, and these 2 days I re-read it again. Of course, I'm not gonna re-read something bad, after all. Therefore, I could say the manga is good. Well, at least it was really great until 4-5 last chapters where It all falls down.

One thing that ...

So today marks the day I finally finished reading Akuma no Riddle. I'm Taking this from the perspective of someone who has both watched the anime and read the manga. And I can say without a doubt that the manga portrays it better (as to be expected).
The character development in the manga is very well written, and I felt that the characters and their personalities all helped to pull the story together. But while most of the characters was written really well, I do got a couple complaints. One being that While Haru Ichinose and her personality was very well written, it really doesn't give ...
