Akame ga KILL!, another series that I want to look forward into, simply because of the dark nature that surrounds it. It is adapted & produced by one of my favorite studios White Fox and animation wise, they’ve done justice to it. It’s pretty nice if you look at it. The fights are so slick. A job well done for White Fox which made another cool anime like Steins;Gate and Jormugand.
Plot wise, it’s pretty goofy from the start with some silly comedy & protagonist’s cheesy personality in which I thought it’ll be an action comedy show like Noragami but not for long until it’s about to reach the 2nd half, sh!t just got real! I was stunned seeing the Night Raid that killed everyone in a horrible way. It’s full of blood and gore yet it’s creepy that I’ve no idea about it in the beginning, and it turns out the good Samaritans are the bad guys now. (sorry, minor spoilers a little bit…) What a twist though. Speaking of musics, the legendary Taku Iwasaki does a great job with this one. Same style but great tunes, nothing less.
Sora Amamiya from One Week Friend’s Kaori now plays the role as Akame. Good, now she was transitioned from the friendzone student into the genocide killing being. That aside, she seems to get a lot of attention lately when appearing in big shows this season like Tokyo Ghoul, Aldnoah.Zero and Mahouka.
