Thread: Akame Ga Kiru

  1. #1

    Akame Ga Kiru

    ( I searched for a topic about this and didn't find one, so if there is one let me know!)

    Has anyone read Akame ga Kiru? Aside from OP and Toriko its the only other manga I follow monthly.

    What's it about?

  3. #3
    Essentially, a boy travels from the country to make money in the big city with his two friends. He eventually finds a job working for a young lady, who he later finds out is a sadist who tortures people to death, including his two friends, its explained that in the Capital rich and powerful people can do whatever they please to the poor and indulge in their sick, twisted fantasies because no one will do anything to stop it. He nearly gets killed, but he's saved by Night Raid, an assassin group who is looking to end the corruption of the Empire, they wield special weapons called Teigu and a lot of fighting and action take place as they try to end the evil Empire from the inside as assassins.

    I personally love it because, much like Shingeki no Kyojin, characters die, but unlike SNK, these people are main characters, people we've come to know over several chapters and care about who die trying to end the tyranny of the Capital. The fights are sick and you're in suspense because your favorite character always has the chance to be killed. It also has a more morally grey take on typical shounen characters. For example, the very first chapter has Tatsumi (main guy) starting his fun adventure to make money for his village, but then he nearly gets killed by a homicidal woman who tortures his friends to death, and he realizes that the world is nothing like he thought it was and he decides to become an assassin. The enemies are also more developed then standard villains, ranging from the complete monsters who you want to see murdered, or the soldiers who're just doing their job because they have families to feed, even a few that you wish werent on the side of evil because they're good people, but mislead. (All spoilers are from the first chapter, so I didnt give anything major away )

    Wave didn't die. Hurray.


    The real world is cold! The real world doesn't care about spirit! You want to be a hero? Then play the part and die like every other Huntsman in history! As for me, I'll do what I do best: lie, steal, cheat and survive!

    That was a good chapter. I noticed that the art was kind of sloppy in some panels though.

    Don't really care about Lan that much, but it'll be interesting to see Wave's reaction to him as Kurome's new puppet. Also Wild Hunt deserves to get completely massacred considering the crimes they committed

    New PV for the anime.
