Akame Ga Kill First Impressions

Published March 12, 2015 by Shay Taree

So I’m half way through Akame Ga Kill and this show is ridiculous and has already taken me through a range of emotions. So please no spoilers. I’ve been sad, upset, mad, laughed, almost cried, and of course been disgusted at the violence. But here is the synopsis of the show: 

In a fantasy world, fighter Tatsumi sets out for the Capitol to earn money for his starving village, and finds a world of unimaginable corruption, all spreading from the depraved Prime Minister who controls the child Emperor’s ear. After nearly becoming a victim of this corruption himself, Tatsumi is recruited by Night Raid, a group of assassins dedicated to eliminating the corruption plaguing the Capitol by mercilessly killing those responsible.

Now the violence in the show definitely doesn’t bother me but its so crazy how crazy the people in this show is. Literally every episode is filled with people with different weapons and abilities but that’s what makes it interesting.

Also I’ve realized why when I decided to watch this show quite a few people told me not to get attached to any of the characters but I did. I know I shouldn’t have but I couldn’t help it and I definitely have a favorite character. Of course it’s Akame 

because she is sooooo cool! I love her Imperial Arms but once again I’m only halfway through the series so we will see what happens.
Surprisingly I also really like Tatsumi. 

Even though he does kind of act like the typical hero in a few actions shows I’ve watched. He can be used for comedic effect in some scenes, he can be fierce in battle, and he can be sensitive during those hard moments. But overall I think I like him because he had all these elements and he also reminds of Ichigo from Bleach. Let me know if anyone that has seen the show thinks this too. 
The humor in this show is awesome! I’ve actually really laughed out loud during a few moments in this show and most have to do with either Tatsumi or Mine. They are just amazing when it comes to comedic relief.

But so far I’m really liking this show and I can’t wait to see what happens next. So I’ll give it so far an 8/10. I’ll put out a complete review once I finish this show so look out for that later.  So comment down below what you thought of this first impression of Akame Ga Kill. Also like always if you comment I will always comment back.

  • I will say that the anime gives an original ending, however this does not start until around episode 19. The manga is going into the final arc as well. I was a fan of the manga way before the anime was announced, but I did enjoy the original ending. Since you are enjoying it now you will probably like the ending too.

    Also when you said “I’ve been sad, upset, mad, laughed, almost cried.” Prepare to get that about a hundred times more as the show goes on.

    • Omg yes you all did and you were all right! But I’m definitely enjoying it. I watched half of the 13th episode before work. Can’t wait to finish it once I get home.
