|Synopsis: Tatsumi, a talented fighter, leaves his village for the imperial capital, in hopes of fame, and enough fortune to save his village from poverty and starvation. However, after a very brief time in the capital he discovers that things in the capital are not what they appear to be – it has a very, very dark underside. Tatsumi becomes involved in a fight with Night Raid, an assassin group targeting the rich and noble, and becomes recruited to their cause.|
Akame ga Kill is set to entertain us for a while, being a 2 cour series. Plenty of fantasy, and by the looks of things there will be plenty of action and gore along the ways as well, as Tatsumi (and his new friends) dig into the dark underside of the capital’s existence. The first episode, at least, made a fairly decent impression on me, and I’m pretty keen to see what will be coming.
