Akame ga Kill! is one of those series that definitely has a lot of action in it, even if it does tend to lean a little more towards gorey. Tatsumi is a hopeful young man who travels with his two childhood friends to the Capital in hopes of making money to send back to their poor village. After their adventure goes horribly south when the truth of the Captial and its citizens is revealed, Tatsumi joins the Night Raid; a revolutionary group that hopes to overthrow the prime minister. The show features a lot of twisted moments, but is certainly worth the watch!
