Okay, so the plot was pretty straightforward. Typical rebellion from the city's Empire, that sort of stuff. But there were also other side plots as if to add a little bit of spice to the story, mostly regarding the rivalry of the Yaegers and Night Raid. Adding onto that, the romance was acceptable, though I didn't get the lust between Esdeath and Tatsumi. I just didn't quite feel it. Moreover so, at the end the two sisters really had to fight to the death to get their problems over with, which can be conflicting because there can be other possible options that won't make the anime less interesting to further watch. Other than that, the story had me hooked.
The character design is really good, though needs a little bit more.. "umph". But tht won't ruin much, it was well designed and a great view for the eye.
I absolutely loved the soundtrack. The ambience was pretty well done, and the roaring of that one Imperial Arm that was a dog. Akame's battle theme was my favorite theme in the anime. Nevertheless, each soundtrack they put in fit the situation pretty well.
I give this a ten. Why? Well, the creators did a really good job with each individual character. They each had their own personality, their own reasons to be who they are. I got very attached to many of them pretty fast, even the ones who were supposed to be on the enemy/opposing team. And man, it was a huge play on the emotions everytime a character got killed. The ending, hell. It split my heart in half. All I can say is that you get so attached to characters, that if something were to ever happen to them, you'd be heart wrenched. This anime did a great job of that.
I personally think that it shouldn't have ended so morbidly lonesome. I mean, viewers can't help but feel trolled if they haven't read the manga. But looking back on it, there were a lot of happy moments that can bring happy tears. Ups and downs were consistent, but smoothly ran on throughout the story. And the plot twists were unexpectedly, which is a good thing.
