Y´know, Akame Ga Kill is a really stupid show. And unless you´re that fanboy/girl who thinks this is the best shit ever because of character deaths and because there is a bit of blood and tits, chances are, you know this already. Chances are, you´ve probably expressed your dislike over the show because it´s fun -and also totally hipster – to hate and argue over things someone else is so blindly in love with.
But who am I to say that this show is stupid and this show is not, right? Well, you´re the source of your own judgements, of course, but personally – and really, this is just my own opinion – I think that having a gun in your throath that magically shoots whenever you want to is a bit stupid. Hey, to each their own, right? Someone somewhere might actually think that Esdeath is an amazingly written character that represents all well-written females in anime just because she kicks her men to death .But this doesn´t mean that she´s an unapproachable, inpenetrable ice-queen though, because she falls in love with our bland shonen 101 of course!
All the dissing aside, I really do enjoy Akame Ga Kill. I don´t enjoy it because it´s well-written, I don´t enjoy it because of it`s humane characters and I don´t even enjoy it because the animation is flawless. ´Cause lord knows that Akame Ga Kill is none of these, but I enjoy it nevertheless, because it´s stupid. And really, who could blame me?
Sure, a well-written story that does something different might go down in history, but in lives that are filled with stress and expectations, dumb shows like these can sometimes be the perfect escapism. Or release. Or whatever.
That´s the thing, sometimes, things aren´t about whether this or that show is ´objectively good´or whether it´s supposed to be parody or a 100% serious series where the author thinks he´s actually creating a respectable universe with respectable characters. Sometimes, it´s just about how low your entertainment tolerance is, and about whether you can enjoy shows like these, rather than punch someone in the gut over it´s success.
So yes, I will argue with you if you say that Akame Ga Kill is a good show and yes, I will continue complaining about it and dissing it just like I do with Sword Art Online and Mirai Nikki. Because that´s where my limit is. Mirai Nikki is, and always will be shit.
