Riddle Story of Devil
2 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Protagonist Tokaku Azuma comes from a long line of assassins and when she is sent to the Myojo Academy she finds herself in Class Black; this isn't like other classes… it consists of twelve assassins and one target! There are rules of course; each assassin must tell the target, Haru Ichinose, that they are preparing to strike and then they have forty eight hours to kill her; those who fail must leave and the one who succeeds will have any wish fulfilled. Tokaku decides that she will not play along and announces that she will protect Haru from the others.

This was a rather enjoyable series even though it essentially had an 'assassin of the week' format; so much so that each episode had a different end title sequence and song that fitted to that episodes attacker. The various assassins are all quite different so things don't get too repetitive. While each episode has its own story we do learn more about Tokaku and Haru as the series progresses and things do change a bit at the end once certain facts about them are revealed; for this reason it is necessary to watch the series in order… as well as the fact that the class size reduces as failed assassins are expelled! The tone of the series is quite dark and it is inevitably fairly violent; it isn't and gloom though; some humour is provided by Class Black's teacher who thinks it is a normal class and has no idea why his pupils keep leaving! Overall I'd certainly recommend watching this series.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
