It had a solid anime ending apart from Leone dying. Manga is nice tho.

7.5/10

"It was okay."

Not enough Akame throughout most of the show, but at least she's still alive.
>>
They skipped a lot of the character development, the ending was a clusterfuck, the animation was almost always terrible and the only time a character got some sort of backstory was when they would die soon.
That being said, the 2nd OP and ED were nice, the girls cute and the theater was enjoyable.

Pretty much this. The writing of the manga isn't some masterpiece sullied by anime original remixing. It's an uninspired shounen stuffed into a cookie-cutter JRPG setting with edge-fest sprinkled all over it. The anime pussies away from the max edge, and the manga is better, but the difference is not great enough for anyone to cry the manga is good and the anime is bad. The last episode made me wish Tatsumi had kicked the bucket a lot earlier and the last third had been anime original Akame and Esdeath show.

What is great about her is the contrast between her sadism and her kindness to her subordinates as well as the interactions she has with them. Though I guess the mind of autistic haters like you can't process how a character can have multiple qualities so you can only focus on one of them .

Judging by how you think her killing herself with Tatsumi's corpse inside that giant ice cube was "beautiful" and "poetical", you'd probably also think someone raping and murdering your family in the name of love is beautiful too. That's the kind of mindless edge Esdeath fans are comprised of.

I think Akame's the only one who he'd have even the faintest chance with. Mine & Leone looked down on him, Najenda wasn't interested in love until the revolution came about, while Akame was asexual but naive.
Laba was a reasonably smart guy, who liked to rely on his brains more than his muscles, so it's not beyond plausibility that he could work out the riht words to get her into bed, even if she's otherwise uninterested.

Still, I suspect when the others were teaching her common sense, they covered this. there's probably a note next to her bed with a list of directives, including "don't sleep with Laba".

She's always had a bunch of detractors whether here or somewhere else. But I think part of the reasons is the normalfags that jumped on the anime bandwagon. Notice the arguments they come up with to hate her? Those arguments are the exact same reasons why they hate moralfag type characters. It's hilarious.

The hate the adaption got never ceased to amaze me. Like the manga was some unsurpassable masterpiece. No, it's edgy shit for the most part no matter what media format it takes. It just had less edgy shit like the stupid ass Wild Hunt and Shura garbage to take up screentime.

For the record I am a Leonefag and hearing Yuu Asakawa voice a playful, busty onee-san makes up for a lot of negative points. Conversely, I've never heard Yukari Tamura sound so obnoxious before. Mine a shit.

the manga's nothing exceptional, but it has been enjoyable at times, but the adaptation managed to knacker a lot of those small joys. A bunch of character moments that were entertaining or helped make the characters more likeable or interesting were dropped, and just about anything that looked cool in the manga looked crap here.
The general need to slash everything to the bone to get through the story quickly really hurt it overall.

>>118470533
There's really a lot of reasons to dislike her.

The reason is that her character concept is completely retarded and that she's very out of place in the series. Esdeath is entirely unrealistic in her personality and actions-- it's basically like a character from Big Bang Theory, nothing she says or does follows any real kind of logic-- she does things because the plot demands them or because the author thinks they would be amusing for her to do.

She "loves" Tatsumi, but isn't actually wiling to have a real or meaningful conversation with him, doesn't take any actions that could possibly result in them being together, and just goes around being plot convenient. She has this whole 12-year old "LOL SOCIAL DARWINISM DA STRONG RULE DA WEAK" philosophy that she espouses, but then, when the kingdom she was fighting for is legitimately proven to be weaker and loses, she doesn't maneuver herself to be with the strong that control the weak, and instead dies in a meaningless fight with Akame. Literally, nothing was at stake for that fight and winning it would get Esdeath nothing. If she was so hungry for battlefields, she would just wait the revolution out and find another place to fight.

Esdeath basically walks around the series and does things without any real motivation, which is why people who care about narrative/characters don't like her. People that are only looking for OMG CURAZY!!!! XD are going to like her, because she's an inhuman plot delivery vehicle.

Esdeath's backstory reminds me a lot of a character named Valkia from Warhammer Fantasy. Except she loves the war god Khorne instead of a dumb shonen MC.

I have to disagree with you.

>>118471663

except that time she told him her back story, and it's not like tats has been doing everything in his power to avoid her since.

hopefully taka will handle her better in the future. already got the fans mixed up because he clearly wanted her more evil in the beginning than he does now.

>>118471663
She follows her own logic. The fact she doesn't comply to anything Tatsumi says is because can't or doesn't want to change who she is.

And backing down from a fight would be more out of character for her.
>>
>>118471663
>She "loves" Tatsumi, but isn't actually wiling to have a real or meaningful conversation with him
there was that conversation they had the night she abducted them where he tried to convince her to defect, and when they were on the island and she told him about her childhood.
> If she was so hungry for battlefields, she would just wait the revolution out and find another place to fight.
As opposed to fighting the rebels, an enemy that was already present there and then?
Just because the kingdom proved itself weak, doesn't mean the rebels were anything she'd consider strong.

>Esdeath basically walks around the series and does things without any real motivation, which is why people who care about narrative/characters don't like her.
she's an adrenaline junkie who revels in battle and bloodshed. She had to kill to survive at an early age, and developed a taste for killing itself, which isn't that unusual as she was always rather good at it.

It was more of crying to Wave's reaction to Kurome's death.

She was a bitch and deserved a more violent death.

Honesty both the manga and anime sucks the sales reflect this garbage perfectly, all characters are 1 dimensional and the author fails to write an impactful death.

Fights have become a borefest using the power of friendship to help the good guys go above and beyond for plots sake, the story is filled with poorly written characters and irrelevant characters waiting to roll over and die.

People swarmed to this manga because of characters and shock factor, shock factor is gone we are literally wanting characters to die instead of going with the flow and when it comes we feel nothing(usually joy depending on the character) as the authors ability to add dramatic build up is ass.

Anime - 3/10
Manga - 5/10

Reason this manga is average is cuz Esdeath is alive who's currently the most popular character in Japan.

Not bait. If you think the anime takes itself seriously at all then you're an idiot and that's probably why you didn't like it. Same can be said for TTGL.

If you wish for a more peaceful enviroment then we need tolerance. If not you are right on what you are doing.

Anime-onlyfag here. The anime was extremely comfy and authentic with itself before episode 20. There's something after it that made it generic and stale.
>>
>>118473824
Well, of course.

Right after Seryu died the manga script was abandoned and everything afterwards was anime original.

This guy gets it.

Also, about the anime in general: so much potential thrown into the dumpster.
Killing all those characters just for the sake of doing so and resembling GoT or AoT was just shit because it felt so rushed 90% of the times.

I didn't feel sad for any death except for Bulat's (mostly because he is a exact copy of Kamina), Mine's, Lubba's and a bit for Tatsumi's.

So many fucking things are left unexplained or unused, like the relationship between the 2 sisters. One time they cooperate, next time they want to murder each other for no logic reason besides choosing different paths in the past. To conclude this they make a chapter with a predictable ending that leaves you with the "is that really it?" feeling. I expected something else.

I really don't understand why they rushed it so much to make just 1 season. I would have prefered 2 seasons with a less fast paced story if exchange for more character development and quality.

I am so dissapointed with this anime. I thought it was different at first because every chapter they would surprise me, but it ended up being shit.

Are we talking about Akame ga edge in here. Because I'm 100 % sure it took itself seriously.

>It was fun.

WTF Najenda

>>118474146
It took itself seriously for sure, why would they include that last scene with the "GOTTA KEEP MURDERING LOLZ" and all the assasins off-voice speech was all about then? It's not like the show had a Mako in it.

The show wasn't very good and honestly neither is the manga but it was entertaining to watch every week. The series has the problem where it's kind of hard to get attached to many of the characters because as soon as they get the character development that makes you attached to them, you know that they're going to die. Still, it's fun to see just what new asspull they're going to throw at us next.

Bols best waifu
Leone best girl
Short haired Mine best character design fix

That's because you picked up the manga only 1 month ago. I've been reading this since the start and got pretty attached to the characters.

Anyone who felt emotional over this anime is stupid. One second it's all herpa derp "lol i'm lost in teh city and now my monies got stolen by big-boobed lady oh noes", then it's "my best friends are fucking DEAD by torture and poison", then it's "lulz j/k dnt care let's go do fun stuff", then it's "omfg my friends are dead again". This manga has no consistency. Everyone is crazy. Nothing makes sense.
Also, the fake main character is a total loser bitch, the REAL main character is not actually a main character until the end of the season.

>>118474860
Yeah, fuck that. Akame didnt feel like the protag at all. Just another face of Night Raid.

So, you are an animeonlyfag, or your reading comprehension or memory are sorely lacking.

In-universe, Esdeath is, probably, the character who best understood the world they live in. A country surrounded by hostile nations: savages from the swamps, barbarian jackasses, unexplored and dangerous lands, and the supposedly "better" nation is known for doing witch hunts. And this is in a world where man isn't the main predator, danger beasts are.
So, add Esdeath's background as a tribal warrior who has known firsthand the truths of the world, plus the context of an empire besieged by enemies at every cardinal point, and her position becomes very coherent and logical.
If anything, the RA and their blind idealism feels more out of place in this kind of setting.

Esdeath also represents on an individual level the contraposition between NR and the empire. The manga has a very pessimistic tone, which was best represented with Lubbock's demise (a hopeless situation in a place hyped as being synonim to death, we get a glimpse of hope, but then it's swiftly crushed, because the palace was, as expected, a very dangerous place). This pessimism of a hopeless struggle of the RA against an all-powerful empire, on an individual level, is the hopeless struggle of the protagonists against Esdeath.

The same glimpse of hope that we saw before Lubbock's death, in Esdeath's case, is her charisma, her love for Tatsumi and her motherly disposition towards subordinates, which are justified by the same tribal background: her allies are like a family, her enemies only deserve to be crushed.
Then, Takahiro plays with that "good" side of her to keep the possibility that she has a change of heart. Maybe he doesn't plan to redeem her, in fact that's the most probable outcome, but it doesn't matter. The point is creating that expectation, while at the same time reminding us of how evil she is. I think he succeeded.
>>
>>118476464
(Cont.)

There are also other small details about her: she doesn't take well to the finer arts, by her own words. She doesn't "get" art, which is a creative task, because she is destructive ("I can't be with someone who only brings destruction"). It's a nice detail about her mentality.
One of my favourite events recently was when she forced the PM to dissolve Wild Hunt. It represented that she doesn't care for the politics game, but she knows how to play it if she needs to. That political power was also hinted by her offer to cancel any charges against Tatsumi for belonging to NR. That coupled with the revelation that she didn't have the intention of killing him anyway (and therefore betraying the Empire), further fuels her impredictability.

And, honestly, just looking at the latest manga chapter, every panel with her is pure fun. That charisma doesn't come from nowhere. It's that kind of character.

By the way, I don't understand why some people think her evilness is a downside. I've never seen that kind of reasoning used against Dio, Raoh, or Griffith, for example. Many people like them despite being jackasses, tyrants or betrayers. You don't have to agree with them morally, they are fictional. Same goes for evil charismatic characters in other media (and I won't name the specific shows I'm thinking about, because I don't want to give the impression that I'm comparing them quality-wise to AgK).

This anime probably would have been a lot better if told from Akames' point of view
>>
>>118476464
>>118476503
That's a good analysis of her character. 10/10 would read again. I wish the haters had the capability to properly convey why she is a bad character, but I guess that would be asking too much.

Anyobody knows about the quality of the manga after being licensed in English? I would like to buy it, but I want to be sure about the quality of the translation.

Last 2, 3 episodes weren't that horrible, the adaptation wasn't as good as i though it would be.
