A competent mecha series but… there’s just nothing that gets me excited.

Cool idea, didn’t end satisfactorily though, the middle ten episodes were a big letdown.

    Kinda like Akuma no Riddle?

    I miss Momoka already…

    Never though I would watch anime like Sabagebu again after my decision to only watch certain genre…

    1. Yeah, Akame ga Kill is pretty similar to Akuma no Riddle in terms of boringness. The titles are even similar haha.

      I miss Momoka too… We need more evil girls like her.
