    One thought on “Akame ga KILL!, Vol. 01”

    1. A group of (mostly) girl assassins taking on a corrupt government? I'm in! As usual, I have the worst time following the fight scenes, but the back stories on these characters are awesome. This is a definite rec for anime club and works for Unmasked- the 2015 summer reading program!

    2. La verdad es que lo que he leído, me ha gustado. Takahiro define bien sus personajes, te hace sentir como si los conocieras desde siempre. Tiene acción mezclada con drama y humor. Como aspectos negativos, hay algún diálogo clave, por así decirlo, que es un poco de besugos y yo quitaría el fan service que siempre me hace restar puntos a una buena trama, pero en fin… como no es exagerado y la trama pinta bien, lo paso por alto.El dibujo me gusta, tiene dinamismo y es bonito de ver. Si bien [...]

    3. after reading my first manga ever which was prison school, i was actually debating whether i should continue this path, and keep on reading some manga along my reads each month, so while here sitting on the weekend and not feeling so good, i picked this one up, and finished it in 2 hours! i just loved the story, and reminds me so much of a lot of anime i used to watch, which is typical, since anime is a diversion of manga after all! hahabut basically i went into this book not feeling much, and n [...]

    4. I've been listening to the OST for the anime and I wanted to read the manga! I've only got the first two volumes and I really want the others!! I absolutely loved this volume and the beginning of this story! I will be reading the next one soon!

    5. Corto y conciso: Fue muy malo. El argumento es algo super explotado que se podría haber desarrollado mucho mejor, pero no. Se hizo mal. Muy mal.Chau.

    6. I quite liked the drawing style and character design. The main character looked very schoolboy with hints of Tsuna and Final Fantasy. (view spoiler)[I liked how when he tried to rationalize his joining the assassin squad into a typical shonen theme "We're an assassination squad for JUSTICE!", the others quickly shot him down. Er, no, they're killers, really. Maybe more along the lines of Hitokiri Battousai than anything else. (hide spoiler)] The other assassins also had rather fun designs that w [...]

    7. A young man who goes by as Tatsumi is a great fighter. Trained to be skilled in both agility and swordsmanship he is seen slaying enormous Danger Beasts. The story begins with Tatsumi and his two childhood friends leaving their poverty-struck village to go to the Capital in hope of bringing back money to help everyone in the village. Although, tragedy strikes early on in the journey as Tatsumi gets separated from his friends down the road when they are attacked by a group of bandits. Assuming on [...]

    8. I can't do it anymore. This is honestly one of the worst manga I've ever read. It's gratuitously violent, fanservicy, and utterly adolescent in all regards. In addition, it's about as entertaining as socks. By that, I don't mean to compare it to that awesome pair of over-the-knee socks everyone's wanted at least once in their life. I mean to compare it to the itchy, too tight, grey wool socks that some well meaning relative gets you for Christmas. It's boring, unwieldy, and takes otherwise pleas [...]

    9. Akame ga KILL! starts with the main character, Tatsumi, saving a caravan from a ground dragon danger beast. He then explains to the caravan that he is trying to get military fame to save his village from starvation. Tatsumi learns the capital is not a good place. It is corrupt. He then runs into a group of assassins known as Night Raid, who is trying to eliminate all the corrupt officials. After accidentally proving himself to them, they recruit Tatsumi against his will. The art style is typical [...]


    11. Loving the story and characters as well. Funny characters and too much action! At the start is not really interesting, in my opinion it was pretty boring, but at a certain point, not too far, you will find it amazing. The events happen really fast so you will be interested soon, but for me that wasn't something that I expect that quick. If you like action, blood, a kind of dystopian world, and you wanna laugh sometimes Try it and read this manga!

    12. Great Read!!! If you like action, violence, and awkward moment's then this is your book. It involves a guy named Tatsumi, Tatsumi is heading towards the capital which is now corrupted (He does not know that) Along the way him and his 3 friends get slit up and agreed they would meet in the Capital. Tatsumi arrives into the city and all hell is flipped.

    13. [English][En español al final]This kicks off with a very promising start. A hopeful, kind boy goes to the capital of the empire in order to become a soldier and help people in his village… only to be deceived twice -have I ever mentioned how much I love plot twists that do not necessarily happen near the end of the story? The lines were simply beautiful and I can’t wait to get to know all the Night Raid members since I barely know their names at this stage -I guess that was intentional sinc [...]

    14. Ayant vu la série tirée du manga, j'étais curieuse de le découvrir. Je n'ai pas été déçue loin de là.Un manga original (je n'avais jamais vu de "journal" du personnage imprimé sur les première et quatrième de couverture c'est chose faite et ça marche bien), drôle (chaque personnage a un caractère bien trempé avec ses défauts exacerbés : vantardise, maladresse, taquinerie, gourmandise) où les apparences sont trompeuses. On rentre dans un monde corrompu où ceux qui de prime abo [...]

    15. Zazwyczaj unikałem shōnenów jak ognia, gdyż przeszkadzała mi ich powtarzalność lub infantylność. Akame Ga Kill to dowód na to, że pomimo skierowania swojej mangi do młodych chłopców można stworzyć ciekawą historię, nawet dla tych nieco starszych czytelników!Protagonista tej mangi, Tatsumi, razem ze swoimi towarzyszami wyrusza do stolicy Imperium, aby uratować mieszkańców swojej wioski z szponów nędzy. Sielanka głównego bohatera zostaje przerwana wraz z atakiem grupy ass [...]

    16. 3,5 * für einen überdurchschnittlichen, mir aber zu brutalen und negativen Manga. Ich hab zwar grundsätzlich nichts gegen Brutalität, aber hier verkommt sie teilweise zum Selbstzweck, abgesehen davon sterben die Figuren noch häufiger als in Game of ThronesDas Setting ist zwar nicht neu, aber imho auch noch nicht so ausgelutscht und erinnert ein wenig an Full Metal Alchemist, als in beiden Manga ein vom Militär beherrschtes Königreich dargestellt wird. Der Zeichenstil ist passend, die Figu [...]

    17. I am totally in love with this series! At a first glance it seems just your typical shonen manga three friends two male and 1 female (like always) leave their village to save their little village while traveling the world while knowing absolutely nothing about the way things work outside their homes. Until this point about the first chapter everything just seems like some generic story.And Than you reach the second chapter And EVERYTHING changes the friends get brutally punished for their naivet [...]

    18. This is essentially a story about a group of murderers. Good people and bad people die horrible deaths, are tortured, beaten and raped. They fight, kill and die. These mentioned assassins are the protagonists and the 'good' people, they kill for a good cause, but kill nonetheless. The 'bad' people are most of the time even worse and the things they enjoy may make you want to puke, however, some 'bad' people are not actually that bad and leave families and loved ones behind. So be prepared that h [...]

    19. Very well-done action storyline, with entertaining and effective characters and characterization. I like this story it's full of strong female protagonists, and if it is a touch fanservicey in spots it also avoids some of the more gratuitous trends I've seen in that direction. I like the idea of using an assassin's team to guide and fuel a rebellion as they're doing, and the government and its heads are clearly evil enough to justify the actions of the team.

    20. I read it because a friend of mine recommended it to me, and to be honest I was expecting more. Like the story is good and everything but I don't know it was kinda disappointing, too childish maybe ? I'm gonna read the second volume anyway because maybe I was just not into it enough to really enjoy it.

    21. Manga iniziato tramite regalo. Molto gradito direi. Tatsumi sembra il classico eroe dei manga shounen ma vi ricrederete. La trama è molto semplice all'inizio ma getta già le basi per uno sviluppo complesso. Disegni che miglioreranno sicuramente. Solo non ho apprezzato particolarmente come hanno sviluppato la storia dei compagni di viaggio di Tatsumi.

    22. This series is very hard for me to rate - I love the main characters, but it is just So Dark and twisted. I would be very careful to recommend this series.It is full of nudity, gore, torture, swearing, murder, assassins, drugs, rape, cannibalism, sadism, etc. etc. etc.

    23. I finished this manga a few months ago and I can say I really liked the characters but the story lost me around the middle I don't think I could recommend it.
