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
being controlled and manipulated by the empire.
-the first group are the elite 7.consisting mainly of Akame (main heroine of the original series),tsukushi and 5 others.these are characters that were mainly raised as assasins and are being manipulated under the pretext of "protecting the empire",and therefore do'nt really posess much common sense,considering pretty much everything was set up for them to become assasins.this group of characters as a whole are a likable and enjoyable bunch
-the second group is the less skilled,consisting of kurome and a few others who are directly below the first group,thus kurome's (no.8) motivation to catch up and be together with her sister (no.7).the rest of the group are pretty much annoying or unlikable.
-you also have cameos from some characters from the original series,and the character chelsea seems will be playing a role in the series
-and of course if you know anything about akame ga kill,it's to not get too attached to the characters
the art of the series is pretty well drawn and detailed with tons of blood and gore,the character designs on the other hand are'nt anything special.
overall it's pretty much as action packed as the original,and slightly more enjoyable due to the lack of most of the big lipped alligator moments.
