    This anime lived up to what I expected...
    Riddle Story of Devil was exactly what I imagined it would be. 12 assassins after a single target with a prize of anything they want on the line. Every episode has a lot of action and cute girls fighting tooth and nail. The characters while all being assassins have a unique and personality fitting to their character. It was an anime where once you started you didn't want to wait to watch the next ...

    nice, good but not great...
    pretty much what you would expect. episodiac 'try to kill the girl' story. i would have given 3 stars, but the last arc was pretty good, IMHO.

    i really like the charicter design, azuma looked like a girl and not a porno star. there really is no romance, so im not sure why the yuri tag.

    most of the fight sceens were done intelligently, well, all but one.
    this tries to be a serious anime, ...

    I liked it, but it was missing something
    Let me start by saying an article in Otakuusa convinced me to watch this series. I don't know, it's like it has everything I could want in an anime and yet it still left me wanting. It's devoid of the anime cliches I dislike (save the high school setting but I won't knock it for that). It lacks many cliches others tend to dislike, fan service and no strong female characters. I like the premise, ...

    Riddle Story of Yuri
    This show is so bad, and yet so awesome. The first thing you have to accept about it is that everyone is a psychopath. Some of the characters are more psychotic than others, but ultimately, they are all insane. They are all idiots, too.
    The best part of this show is watching Haru (That's the target girl's name) do her best to survive the onslaught of the other assassins. Tokaku, her ...

    adventure trip that gets emotional
    Comment 1: holy s**t. Comment 2: da fuq?
    If you want a suspenseful, emotionally charged show, this is a good choice.
    The plot is pretty clear as stated in the show summary. I wasn't expecting (although I should have) that the assassins (a.k.a., "bad guys") would end up having their own character development as being damaged individuals that the viewer ends up caring about (at least a little) in ...

    Spellbinding & A Definite Must Watch
    This anime started off with twelve assassins and one target, all thirteen characters had separate personalities and back stories that made for an interesting watch. There was great character development and so many great and unexpected plot twists that it made what could've been an average anime into an amazing one. I found that throughout the anime I simply couldn't wait to get to the next ...

    Worth watching. Better than expected.
    Yes, this show has some flaws, some weak points, some lazy writing, and way too much creepy fan service. But it turns out it's also entertaining, sometimes suspenseful, clever, and compelling, so much so that I'm giving it five stars despite the shortcomings I mentioned at the top.

    The main characters have enough depth and unique traits to keep them from being the same old tomboy/girly-girl ...

  • need to kill time or just mindless action?
    not telling you to put this as your top must watch. However If you don't know what to watch. and would like to be entertained. a group of assassins trying to kill 1 girl and another girl protecting her. this is a very vilent show with decent action.

    action isn't horribly over the top as this isn't super powers/ super natural.

    There is "Some" romance ,but its more predominant in the ...

  • Honestly Genius and Well Thought Out!
    "Riddle Story of Devil" I find to personally be great.

    Its for all those edgy people who fell like watching some killing done in peculiar ways. Although its not quite deserving of the final fifth star, this is because the characters are not developed incredibly deep. The main characters are thought out well, but the other assassins all get for the most part a single episode to develop. Other ...

  • It was good, would recommend
    If you're looking for a shorter anime that has a good story and has a lot of action in it then you'll like this one. The characters are interesting to watch because they each have their own backstories and assassination techniques. The episodes never get too dull or feel dragged out.
