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.

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 read more

Akuma no Riddle

The Survival game is a special kind of genre, one that has, within a set of parameters, a wide selection of customization. One series can focus on the traditional battle royale setting, while another can use the murder mystery to accomplish its goals. For Akuma no Riddle, there is only one target and everyone in her class (except one would-be assassin) wants her dead. Does this series nail it's own approach to the survival game genre? Not really, but at least it looks pretty!

Story: The premise is simple: one girl and her BFF against the rest of her all female class. Each one read more

The series has an interesting concept, of having the need to find who needs to be assassinated. In fact what makes it more interesting, is that until the end of chapter 4 it’s not clear.
In regards to the characters, I cannot say that I don’t enjoy the fact that they have such varied personalities, but I feel like perhaps they could be worked on a bit more.
Overall, it feels like this a typical scenario, where one group has to fight, whilst the other has to survive.
It’s in a sense too over used, and therefore this make the series a bit of a read more
