Few Things Are Better
14 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Akame ga Kill is absolutely fantastic, especially the characters. In this anime, we are granted a very realistic immersion into their war. There are heroes on both sides, and everyone has their own reasons for fighting - justice, revenge, money, power, love. It becomes difficult to see some of the capitol soldiers as "bad guys", because their motives are so relatable. However, this show is not lacking in its representation of sick, twisted villains that we wish only existed on TV. Nothing is sugarcoated, (don't watch this anime if you have an aversion to blood and gore), allowing us to suspend disbelief all the more and form strong emotional connections to these fictional characters. Be warned, to pick a favorite is to live dangerously. This show is a must-see for any anime fan. 9/10 stars.
