Akuma no Riddle anime and manga rant/discussion

Post by midori's crazy398 on Thu Apr 24, 2014 5:44 pm

This show...THIS SHOW! /;A;/

Akuma no Riddle is an ongoing manga with 20 chapters, that was adapted into an anime earlier this month. The anime only has three episodes so far with new releases every Friday. The story revolves around an assassin named Azuma Tokaku, who is sent to a all girls private academy to kill one of the students there. The catch is that everyone else in the class she has been placed in is also an assassin out to kill the same girl, Haru Ichinose. As time goes on however, Azuma decides instead to protect Haru from the other 11 assassins after sympathizing with her mysteriously bloody past. While it may sound cheesy, its definitely done right with a tense atmosphere as each assassin feels each other out, and even Haru cannot be trusted despite her gentle and naive appearance. This is supposed to be a Yuri as well as an action/suspense series, so expect that when walking into it as well. My favorite assassin is Haruki Sagae hands down. Though she's a bit of a Kyouko clone from Madoka Magica, she's just so cool /;A;/! I know it sounds like I'm riding her already,but I can't help it, there's just something about her character Dx.

I am loving this series,
and what could be better than Haruki, who looks like Midori Sugiura and Kyoko Sakura dused

Totally, that was the first thing I thought of when I saw her xD

with ep 4 though, Haru is feeling more and more fake

First I want to thank you for this topic :D
I agree. There's something wrong with her. Is she really that kind? Why then the principal hired so many assassins to kill her? And who is Nio? I mean there was something on her body which scared that serial-killer so much.

You're welcome!

I know! The manga makes it even weirder when she says "...but Haru already knew, because Haru knows many things, Tokaku-san..."

^
She can't be innocent, but at the same time we can't trust what Nio said about her killing her family given the fact that Nio is a sneaky Nagi type bitch. I don't know what Nio's got, but a lot of people are saying she's probably endgame

First episode of an abridged! The voice acting needs work but the dialogue is pretty funny

The crack

Da Meme's

Btw I can't help but picture Hanabusa as a drug addict/rich girl who wants to be a gangster and listens to a lot of old school rap

1. Cuz she's sick or has a "frail body" and so smokes weed and does coke on the side cuz it's "medicinal"
2. As soon as she pulled out the gun in ep 7 I thought of Biggie's song "Who Shot Ya"



Hence the meme xD

I wish i could make an abridged xD I have too many ideas

I'm gonna start watching Akuma no Riddle next week! If it sucks me in, expect full on reviews! If it's one of those series where nothing really happens (like Sakura Trick), then expect simple thoughts.

It's the kind of show that takes time to grow into itself, ep 5 is pretty much the stabilizer for most people, not to say that nothing happens, but the way it happens before then rather might seem to drag, that's what I've taken from the reviewers anyway, but honestly I didn't even notice that, too busy having fun watching it xD

I just watched episode 8, and I really like this anime.
The only thing is that it's just so obvious that Haru and Tokaku will survive at least till the last or one before last assassin.

Even in the situation they landed in in the end of this episode.
Cliffhangers. Sigh.

I hate that they're rushing it too, it really makes it just come off as a ad for the manga (which it is soooooo far ahead of, like damn 0-0 we're still in the Romeo and Juliet play in the manga) I still like it though, it's like the old action movies I used to watch with my dad, there may not be too much story, but the fights and characters drew me to it anyway. Did anyone see the new ep 11 with subs? I wanna talk about Tokaku but I don't wanna spoil anyone either

bump 

Since the anime is over now, I'd like to make this announcement:

There will be a 13th episode which will be a 50min OVA in December. It's assumed it will be filler since it is supposed to take place on an island and is a survival game

Ihoshiku is still translating the manga, and once the OVA is finished, she will be our last source for story based AnR content until the manga is also over

I don't have to go through THIS again, do I?  Trollface 



I'm set to watch Akuma no Riddle on Malaysian bootleg during my trip to see my girlfriend. I've read what all of you had to say, but I'll try not to set expectations to any high or fence sitting standard. You all don't see it as a masterpiece, just as a fanservice thing with great looking girls and seiyuu work. If that's all it offers, I'm sure to enjoy it. :3

Not really fanservice, more like plot issues and undercharacterization , I'd say the manga is a better investment

i  really enjoyed the anime and have just started reading the manga.

I just have to say though that Romeo and Juliet play, had me in tears.

spoiler of ending:
but i'm very disapointed that they were still alive at the end of the anime it ruins the drama
