They believed that every time they took a life, they brought happiness to another...

Before becoming Night Raid's deadliest ally, Akame was a young girl bought by the Empire and raised as an assassin whose sole purpose was to slaughter everything in her path. Because that's what makes people happy... right?

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

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

So I don't see many reviews, and none of the last year where the manga has gone through its best arcs so here is my review.

Story 9\10
The story is about akame when she worked in the capital, it goes through her missions with her old squad along with how she got her teigu, how the imperial was before she joined night raid and adding an immense amount to the lore. This answers questions about the lore and akame ga kill's story, by adding to characters that were introduced in the original akame ga kill like esdeath and chelsea along with other characters.
Story is rich read more

Based on volume 1-4 (until chapter 25)

Akame ga kill zero is the prequel of Akame ga kill and it's main idea is to show the complete story of Akame and her little sister - Kurome. However, there is much more than that showed in the series, there are various groups of new and old characters to be observed, a more detailed look into the mindset and ideals of the rotten Empire and in general a better and more detailed exploration of the dark fantasy world of Akame ga kill.

The story, as mentioned, is focused on Akame and Kurome - the read more
