    Akame ga Kill!

    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...me_1_cover.jpg
    Synopsis
    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.



    I'm making a thread for this one because in my opinion it had the strongest first episode of the season, from the ones that I saw.

    At first I was worried that it might be a little too much on the humorous side, but man dat ending got real very fast. So now I think it has the perfect balance of comedy and dark shit going on. So far the characters we have met seem fun and interesting, although we don't know much about all of them. The main character is a likeable goof which is a plus.

    Can't wait to see more of this.

    I like this a lot and first episode is already strong enough to vie for my top 3 this season, but stronger than Alnoah Zero?

    First episode? Most definitely. I enjoyed Aldnoah but it was a bit of a slow burner. And I personally prefer action/comedy over straight up action so that edges Aldnoah out for me.

    Feel free to make an Aldnoah thread

    Oh that's cool, I was just wondering. I usually prefer action/comedy too but Aldnoah's direction just blew me away.

    Glad some other people are making topics now as well. Overall it was interesting and fun to watch even if it got a little melodramatic near the end. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the cast and shit getting started.

    Another good episode today. Wasn't anything amazing but they are gonna have to do some world building. I really enjoyed the action scenes in this. Some bits reminded me of Berserk.

    Good episode. Agreed it does have some Berserk flair to it though more light hearted. ED is great.

    And yes tsundere next!

    The storyline and cast are kind of cookie cutter so far, but the action scenes are great. Hopefully there aren't too many of these go out and kill trash mob episodes.

    It's 24 episodes so there will probably be a bit more. I feel like he's gonna undergo that shit with each member of Night Raid for the foreseeable future.

    Bulat's VA who also voiced Kamina told MC to call him Aniki, all is right with the world.

    If Bulat ends up even half as awesome as Kamina he'll be good. Been pretty funny so far.

    Really enjoying it.

    Taking into account that it's sticking pretty close to the manga, which isn't even finished, and has relatively good pacing thus far (and because this is penned as being a two-cour show), I'm already predicting that there'll probably be a second season if the show sells well. Which I am perfectly alright with.

    Not any time soon, the manga only has 52 chapters and this season alone is going to get into the 30s.
