I can get the hate in the beginning since she's pretty standard. Also I don't mind her voice that much..... I actually kind of like it....

That might just be me, I love her character overall though. But I can't help but think
thanks to the latest chapter.

What do you guys think of Mine? I've heard a lot of different opinions on her.

She's one of my favorites in the manga I love her character, her development, and her role. I don't find it super annoying like others do, I don't think she's a full tsundere either. She shows signs here and there, but I think she breaks the mold a lot. The confession is a big proof of this.

I also think she's pretty damn strong, especially since she was able to take out Seryu (though that could have gone either way).

What do you guys think of her?


I like her but I'm doing my best not to get attached to her because I know, I just know that at some point in time she will die. I don't know how but I can just tell it will happen. Esdese might not take her out but regardless Mine will die, Tatsumi will grieve and eventually (probably) become a couple with Akame.

It's too late for me, I'm already attached. Also I almost think that's too predictable and that's why I think she's going to live. I'll definitely be a little mad if the author chooses that route because that's literally the most predictable route he can go down. If he wants to keep things interesting, Mine should live.

That would be a welcome surprise. Keeping them a couple till the very end would be great because I want to see their relationship continue to develop and if they make it out of this situation in one piece, they'll only grow closer and become stronger.

In my dream world, I would want Wave to join NR and then Wave and Akame get together

Yeah that would be way to predictable. Yeah and in my dream world Esdese gets with Tatsumi, which would never happen.

So does anyone else see this as one of the most brutal manga they've ever read? I do because a lot of the things that happens in the manga and the ONLY reason I would say it is more brutal than Berserk is because I put the raping of Bol's wife and child into context. I know some people like to say that Berserk is worse because Guts had to witness the love of his wife get raped BUT primarily in Japanese beliefs and many countries in general, the gravesite is where you can connect the best to a lost loved one, some believe to the point where you can actively communicate with the dead from that spot.

That means that because Bol's wife and child were raped, murdered, dismembered (and possibly had the corpses raped) ON BOL'S GRAVE MIND YOU, Bol's witnessed his wife and child be raped and murdered and was powerless to stop it because he was dead and could only witness the horror that occurred.

Berserk is f*cked up, and is easily no. 2 in my eyes but jesus Akame Ga Kill went DARK and then some recently.

Edit: I dunno, maybe I need to continue with Berserk, I dropped it after awhile but it looks like it gets more screwed up than what I was lead to believe.

Edit: Completely forgot about special chapter 23.5 for Akame Ga Kill, just got reminded of it over on the anime forums. Damn I forgot how f*cked up that was.

I can't compare it with Berserk. While both series have really disturbing imagery, Berserk has a far darker overall tone IMO. Reading Akame ga Kill has made me wince at times, where as Berserk has made me lose sleep.

Sounds like I need to go and get caught up on Berserk's manga then.

I think the biggest reason you feel that way might be because Akame ga Kill like to throw in comedic elements into its story before shit goes south, much like a Shakespearean play (as far as I have noticed). So it offsets the brutality of Akame ga Kill whereas with Berserk it seems like shit goes south and just stays there.

Berserk is more complex for sure, but that doesn't mean it's not comparable. They have a lot of similar qualities. Akame Ga Kill is like Berserk-Lite.

Heck, Bulat even did a homage to Guts when he called himself the "100 man slayer."

The humor in AGK isn't what makes it a lighter version of Berserk.

If you remember, even Berserk had a lot of light hearted humor in the Manga especially the pre demon arc. What makes Berserk a different animal is that its politics were a lot more mature and complex. The characterization was modeled after real life politicians and every person had layers beneath them.


AGK had to get with the times though. MOE is in.

this probly exists somewhere already, but im currently terrified of spoilers which lurk in the shadows everywhere, so i refuse to look.
i wanna start reading the manga but was wondering how different, if at all, it is from the anime. i started reading one chp 10. "kill your Saddness" and already noticed some differences so i was wondering if i should start from chp1? or if all that material has been covered.
thanks in advance

start from chapter 1 and binge read the series. It'll be well worth it. The manga is more gory than the anime and there are some differences right now.

haha it was probably me. As far as I know no one else is using Esdeath's dere-mode as their profile picture, and yes she is best girl, however I'd do everything in my power to not be her M.

The episode she does this blush in will either be episode 9 or 10. I am REALLY looking forward to it because I KNOW that a number of people are gonna have her become best girl in their eyes afterwards, especially with how she interacts with Tatsumi later on. I'm just worried about how she's gonna be like in Chapter 52 which should be readable in like a week or two.

Edit: since chapter 51 came out translated 28 days ago, chapter 52 should be out by this time next week max. I expect this thread to explode with that is to come after all those damn cliffhangers
