    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, ...

  • The World's Deadliest High School Class
    I went into this series not knowing quite what to expect, and found a series that turned out to be great fun. The plot itself may not be the most original in the world. A cold-hearted assassin meets a kind-hearted girl and develops strong feelings for her, and then ends up protecting her from every other assassin that wants her blood. The main driving force behind this anime though is its ...

  • 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 ...

    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, ...

    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 ...

  • 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 ...

    Unbearable stupidity
    11 incompetent assassins try to kill a girl who is too stupid to live while a marginally less inept assassin protects her. Each murder attempt is more unnecessarily convoluted than the last yet still they come ever closer to killing the lemming of a main character. Around episode 6 I realized I was rooting for the assassins, but by episode 8 I wanted them to die too. Needless to say I gave up ...

  • Great story, great characters and a ton of bad ass scenes!
    Great series!
    You get what you expect. A bunch of assassins with a target and only one person to defend the target. They dive into the different characters, some more than others, to explain what got them to this point and why they are acting as they are.
    I love the main characters, but I have a soft spot for the damsel in distress and the "tough on the outside, soft on the ...

  • A very good action anime
    I really enjoyed this show. The characters were believable and the story was captivating. I really liked how each ending credits scene was different and focused on one of the characters. The plot was a little bit predictable, but there were some twists that kept it interesting--especially at the end. Overall, I would say this show is definitely worth watching, or in my case, re-watching!
