Akame ga kill! Zero is a prequel to Akame ga kill manga. The series focuses mostly on Akame and her sister, their past together when they were working for the assassin unit for the empire, and how with the reason why Akame left the empire and her sister to make the people 'happy' and join Night Raid. This series could've been read without the knowledge of the original sequel series, however i do recommend to read the sequel because it did come out first. Although it's just a personal opinion.

The story is pretty similar to the original Akame ga Kill series. Except rather read more

I was really excited to sit down and read this after finishing Akame Ga Kill a couple weeks ago, now that I've completed it I don't really know what to say about it.

For starters, let's start with the most important bit: Did I enjoy this manga? Yes, I thought it was a fun ride and I enjoyed the extra bits of lore we got on the characters as well as the world of AGK. Plus seeing what lead up to Akame's betrayal of the empire was cool. The fights in this manga are REALLY fun as well, like I don't think there was any fight read more

Akame Ga Kill Zero is an action manga and prequel to Akame Ga Kill, written by Takehiro and illustrated by Toru, Kei.

Zero is set months before the main series, following Akame’s journey as an assassin working for the Empire. The story is a collection of mini assassination arcs and lots of fighting, it does not have an interesting story, and the execution is hit or miss. You honestly do not even need to read Zero at all to understand Akame Ga Kill's story. The biggest benefit of Zero is that it strengthens Akame's character, giving her more characterization and depth as you start the main read more

Akame Ga Kill Zero is a prequel to the akame Ga Kill Series,mainly following Akame and her Sister.It can also be read even without the knowledge of the original

The story is relatively the same as it's the parent series,with it's themes of corruption,though as opposed to the parent series,the characters are assasins working for the government as opposed to working against it.

The story maintains the tone of the original manga,though luckily it has less of the forced comedy,though there is some comedy during the downtime it does'nt feel forced or cringeworthy.the pointless fanservice still remains though

the story follows 2 groups of assasins that are read more
