*Warning* Major spoiler below!
Wow completely taken from Samurai 7. While thinking about it, I realized the whole story down to the deaths is a copy paste.

Not that I really care, but for people who want to watch the series you should really put a spoiler on that, OP.

Anyway. This thread. Is there a point, or...?

Well its not a rip off.

Every series now days is related to a series that came out prior.

You can argue that SAO ripped of .Hack and Log horizon ripped off SAO. But none of them ripped each other off, they just have a similar setting.

A series can be similar and not be a rip off.

I find Akame Ga Kill to be very enjoyable (might not be the best show this season but it is very enjoyable to just sit and watch). If a series is enjoyable why would it matter if it has a similar plot to another good show?

Keep in mind this isn't even following the manga anymore. The anime did it's own thing after episode 19.

Yet another version retelling/reframing of Kurosawa's 7 Samurai (reframing, being key here). Not always serious, aimed at "mature" youngsters more than adults, but enjoyable none-the-less. I found it to be very much worth a watch, even re-watchable. I wouldn't give it top marks because of my perception of who the target audience was, but still not all that far off.

If you say that Samurai 7 and Akame ga Kill are extremely close in plot.
Then I would say:

Kanbee = Najenda
Katsushiro = Tatsumi
Kyuuzo = Akame

which means the future looks bright for Tatsumi.

I titled it as such to bring people into the thread.

Huh? There wasnt really any foreshadowing in the first episode. Tatsumi is most likely dead, just like Mine.
