Akame ga Kill!

Wikipedia wrote:Tatsumi is a fighter who sets off to the Capital in search of a way to make money to assist his poverty-stricken village. After falling victim to a robbery by a woman and losing all his money, Tatsumi is taken in by a noble aristocratic girl by the name of Aria. In the following night, Aria's place is attacked by a group of assassins known as Night Raid. While Tatsumi at first tries to defend Aria from the assassin Akame, another member of the group stops the fight. She reveals that Aria has kidnapped several villagers and tortures them for fun. Shocked upon seeing the tortured villagers — including his two best friends, Tatsumi kills Aria.

Seeing potential in Tatsumi, Night Raid invites the boy to their group warning that regardless of how they want to assassinate corrupted people, they are murderers. Tatsumi accepts in order to become stronger and protect his village. In their fight against the Empire, Night Raid starts antagonizing an organization known as The Jaegars led by Esdeath, the most powerful fighter in the Empire. As both Night Raid and Jaegars suffer losses, the Empire forms a new secret police force, the Wild Hunt, with the son of the Prime Minister, Shura, as its leader, to bolster its law reinforcements. However, Wild Hunt heavily abuses its new authority by killing innocent civilians for fun.

So, episode one kind of throws you for a loop. starts out kind of like a generic shonen manga and then suddenly people are being eviscerated, blood is flying everywhere and people are being tortured. big wtf moments like that. And then it goes right back to being lighthearted and silly.

That said I'm actually kind of enjoying it, gotta see how it pans out but so far so good.

this series is kind of a deconstruction for the shounen genre, it starts just like every other, but soon it shall reach points that will define the entire show

Enjoying everything about this anime! White Fox did not disappoint. This show solidified the fact that I'll be checking out every new anime from this studio.

I almost thought the first episode was boring until the twist was revealed XD. I wasn't familiar with the manga before diving in, so that made the impact much better.

People seem to be dying left and right, though?

well, it's over, and with a pretty depressing ending

fortunately, I just checked and it deviates from the manga around ep 17 or 18 so I I'll be checking the manga out after it later on

Actually no, the anime pulled a lot of shit and killed people who were not supposed to be killed, well "yet" that is. The anime also skipped a lot so you should probably start reading at the chapter of Kill the three", which is chapter 12.

I liked the beginning of anime, it seemed like it would be interesting and it had interesting plot. However someone thought it would be really interesting to kill every single character in the anime. Even tho they have so many fights/killing, those fights aren't anything special. It's maybe just me but I think this anime went in totally wrong direction. Just my opinion tho.
