Action fans will be psyched as there’s plenty of hacking and slashing in this summer’s batch of anime titles but Akame Ga Kill’s fast action swordplay is definitely the one to watch. Based on a manga serialized by Square Enix, Akame Ga Kill centres on Tatsumi a fighter who travels to the imperial city in order to save his village from poverty. Unfortunately, when he arrives, he finds nothing but corruption and chooses to team up with a wanted group, known as Night Raid, to fight against the city’s evil leaders. Each member of the group is armed with special weapons called Teigu that give the wielder unique fighting styles and powers. Night Raid has a total of six members including Tatsumi with personalities that appeal to the masses watchers making this one a must see for all fans.
