It started off really well, and I'm quite surprised as I watched the anime first, and the anime had pretty much followed every single detail for the first few volumes and it was great! It was fast pace and there was clear character development. But then it got to perhaps, Vol 13 and 14. It dragged a lot. I was literally just looking at the manga at this point, reading it seemed pointless because I already knew what was going to happen. I'm kind of sad that most of the Night Raid had died in the end, especially boobs, I mean, Leone. Cause she had the chance to live. But I guess it was 100% better than the anime cause literally everyone including Tatsumi died. I really did like the fact that they let Kurome and Mein live, I thought that was pretty cute. But the whole Mein being pregnant creeped me out, they looked 15 at the beginning of the manga and anime. Either way, the thing I like about Manga's and Animes is the character development and there were so many subtle changes in Tatsumi that it was quite unbelievable, and you don't quite notice the changes until you hold out a picture of when you first see their appearance and the last. But did Tatsumi become human again in the end? I mean... ugh, right.Despite a few of the volumes being a drag I really did enjoy it and would recommend to new manga readers!
This manga is what every gore fan is looking for. -cute girls -limbs flying around -epic villain characters The story is good, some plot holes but hey, even the best manga have plot holes, the characters are all drawn very good even the side characters look awesome. So if you want more, start reading fool, the manga is all you need
I watched the anime first and I actually don't regret it. In fact I actually am happy I did. The anime was so different it left me with a bunch of cool surprises that weren't in the anime. A solid shounen anime. Story: a regular shounen story weak to strong, every girl in existence wants to violently fuck him blah blah blah. It's very interesting for 3 reasons. The romances and how enjoyable some of them were, the complex world of Teigu, and of course that Akame/Kurome subplot. All of them made the world in which the teigu are in kind of cool, despite the lack of world building. There ismt much filler in the anime so I a few empty battles though. There is tons of dark shit in it also. So make sure your wary of it. Art: Occasionally very jumbled in some scenes. The gore was there and it was there consistently. Never an absolute bloodbath but it's enough to keep violence enthusiasts, like me, excited. character design was very interesting also. Charcters: there were only a few non generic stereotypical characters. Esdeath of course, Akame and Kurome and that sadist Sayuka (one of the weirdest characters I've ever seen). Most other character are generic characters. My biggest problem was Night Raid. Wave is literally the same character as Tatsumi. A lot of characters not named Akame and Tatsumi get little to no development and only backstory and when there about to die, blah blah blah. But as stated this romances and dynamics will force you to pick both a best girl and favorite character. If have to say my favorite characters list would go. 3. Akame/Leone 2. Kurome 1. Esdeath The best thing omitted from the anime is that Wave/Kurome romance which was nothing more than a fleeting friendship in the anime. A solid read with interesting subplot upon subplot. Now that I've read the anime I will now rewatch the anime and rip it limb from limb for fucking the plot even if they had to.
