If you’ve haven’t heard about it yet then your going to hear about it now. The awesome and popular manga Akame Ga Kiru is being turned into an anime. Congrats Akame Ga Kiru!
But, I wasn’t that too surprised to hear this. The manga is so freaking awesome and addictive to read that I was surprised that it didn’t already have one out. Now for all of you guys who don’t have a clue what this new show is about it’s about a boy named Tatsumi who travels to the capital with his three best friends in order to gain some rep and money to save their village. Things don’t go exactly as planned and Tatsumi ends up joining up with Nigh Raid. A group of deadly assassins that kill the evil and corrupted that live inside the capital.
For now their are only a couple episodes out, since its new. From what I watched so far I feel like its going way faster than in the manga, but the art is beautiful though. Also, I’m feeling that much intensity like I was when reading the manga, but that could be due to already knowing what’s going to happen. Even though, I’ve already read ahead I look forward to the next episode of Akame Ga Kill.
If I had anything to say about this manga, then it would be that it’s funny, heart warming and a little messed up. The reason why I say that this story is a little messed up is because of Takagi. Takagi is our main character’s, Konduo, boss and worst nightmare.
Poor Kondou is the only person in the company that gets yelled and tortured by Takagi. For some strange reason, he’s nice to everyone else except him. Since the beginning I thought this was Takagi’s way of saying that he liked Konduo and that’s why he treats him differently from everyone else. Then, why doesn’t he just tell him, instead, of making Kondou’s life miserable as much as possible?
The answer is that Takagi is a sadist.
Your going to see a lot of that in this manga. I felt so sorry for him while I read it. From all this bullying, Kondou’s has developed this little habit where he goes to a local bar after work everyday, so he can drown away his sorrows. Also, so he can rant and complain to anyone that will listen to him about how horrible Takagi is.If you think that Takagi’s sadism is messed up, you won’t believe what happens to him next?
Warning: Spoiler ahead!
Not only does he not get home one night. But, he ends up getting picked up by Takagi and then wakes up finding himself in his bed naked! I liked how Takagi kind of played with his mind after that. Konduo wasn’t quite sure if they did do it or not. Takagi neither confirmed or denied it either. He just played it off like nothing happened. He still even treats him the same and never mentions it.
I felt so bad for him because he has to deal with this evil mastermind everyday. This manga would be M for mature because your going to see a lot of action in the bedroom (if you know what I mean). Also, I would like to hint that there is going to be a bit of a love triangle introduced into this story, but not much though. I wish they let that stay in there for a bit more. Also, I think that they could have gone a few chapters more before ending it. Other than that this was a good read. A short, but a good read nonetheless.
I would love some feedback from, you guys. To see how I’m doing or if anyone has any requests that they would like for me to talk about.
Rutta to Kodama is a completed story by Fujitani Youko. This story revolves around two boys named Rutta and Kodama. These two became roomates at their school because unfortunately for Kodama there were no other rooms available. He didn’t care that he didn’t have a choice when it came to having a roommate. That is until is new classmates started to tell him about the rumors they heard about him.
They scared the crap out of him when they told Kodama that his roomate-to-be was a heartless thug that would beat people up for the smallest of reasons. They told him that he doesn’t care about anyone or anything else, but himself. They made it sound like he was going to end up dead very soon. When he finally met him, he was just like his classmates described him. But, in this story we see Kodama change is personality really quickly in the beginning. He goes from beating people up in different schools from actually going and paying attention in class.
Everybody in the school wondered, ” Why is he starting to behave now?” It’s because of Kodama. But, what got me was the reason he was even listening to him in the first place. The answer is simple………he’s gay.
No, I’m not just saying that to be funny. He’s really gay and has the hots for Kodama.
Yes, my friends this is another Yaoi story. For people who don’t know Yaoi means gay in guy terms. How is Kodama going to handle it when he finds out that Rutta is in love with him? You can find out by reading it.
What I liked about this story is that it’s not too long. They don’t keep dragging the story along until it gets boring. I also liked watching their love story develop. You can tell that Kodama was the girl and Ruuta was the guy in the relationship. This manga is heart warming, touching and totally romantic. It’s an awesome love story. I think anyone who loves reading about a love story and doesn’t mind it being revolved around a gay couple would really love this story.
