Another season, another great set of anime. Here’s the ones I’ve watched~
Akame ga Kill: 8.5/10
This was probably one of my favorite shows this season, and I don’t even know why. The story is nothing special. It actually just feels like a stringing together of one random fight after another. They kill monsters, they kill enemies, and sometimes they kill each other. It’s really not that interesting, but then again, there’s something about this show that just gets me addicted.
I’m quite happy this has some more episodes in store for us. Now please let us see some more of Akame!
Length: 12 Episodes
Genre: Action, Comedy, Military
Momoka Sonokawa is a first year transfer student that arrives at Aogiri High, which predictably, is an all-girls school. She unexpectedly meets third year Miou Ootari and gets dragged along into the wild world of survival games. Can Momoka survive being a part of Miou’s wacky band of gun-toting airsoft enthusiasts?
Each twenty-something minute long episode is broken up into 2 or 3 segments, and I definitely liked the fragmented episode layout due to the rapid-fire nature of the storytelling. Sabagebu! wasn’t going to tell some grand overarching story anyway, so I think it’s better that they focused on storytelling in fun-size chunks, rather than stretching out a single narrative over the entire length of an episode.
During their survival games, the members are “killed”, but this only happens in their imagination, and they eventually return to the land of the living in order to continue giving us the comedy we very much deserve.
This time, I finally managed to get myself to not start every other show that looks good, and simply give those a chance that really sparked my interest. So this will be a far shorter list than last time. Anyway, enjoy~

Other than that, I can only say that this show started out way better than expected. It’s honestly my favorite show right now, even though there are quite a few that come close to surpassing it.
