The OP for Akame ga KILL!

Ep. 1

Wow The 1st episode was impressive.

Youtube link to the opening from the anime:

Never trust anyone

It was Bloody

It was Tragic

It was Brutal

It was Glorious

Ep. 01

That was actually a pretty good first episode!
If it stays like this, it’ll probably be a really great series.

I wonder what Sentai saw in this one as I, having seen episode one, didn’t see it. The plot summary sounds really cool but the execution was, well, less so.

BTW, why was the main character exempted from the normal 2 night routine?

“I’m going to survive and be one of the winners.” A line like that has got to be asking for trouble! But I hope Mine does survive. I like her. On the other hand, I don’t like the Minister and I can see the need for Night Raid. He needs to be taken down!

Tatsumi sure got his ass handed to him.
But Akame comes to the rescue, and kicks some serious ass.
