Akame Ga Kill!: Collection 1 (2014/Sentai Blu-ray Set)

Picture: A+ Sound: B+ Extras: B Episodes: A-

Tatsumi was off to the Imperial Capitol to start a new life, only to run into a group of Assassins known as 'Night Raid'. There in the Imperial Capitol he learns is filled with the corrupt and black hearted people who prey on the innocent and weak. Tatsumi joins Night Raid to avenge those who have died and killed by the Empire, their goal is to kill everyone who is involve with the government, but no matter how they sugarcoat things, history will always remember them as murderers and assassins in Akame Ga Kill!: Collection 1 (2014).

Tatsumi once believe that the Imperial City was a place where people could live in happiness and there was fairness and justice for all who lived there, but in truth he couldn't be more wrong, the capital was nothing more than den of wolves in sheep's clothing. The powerful and corrupt rule through fear by using 'Imperial Arms', legendary weapons with incredible powers, however Night Raid also collects and uses the Imperial Arms against them. Akame uses a cursed blade named Murasame, Mine is a sniper who's gun get more powerful as the danger increases, Leone can turn into a beast woman, Sheele uses a giant pair of scissors that can cut anything, Lubbock uses unbreakable wires, and Bulat uses Incursio, an invincible armor which he later passes on to Tatsumi.

This is a bloodbath filled anime where the main characters are killers and assassins ...and they aren't afraid to kill off characters too. It creates a world where the government is absolute evil and deserve to die. While there is some comic relief and romance, viewers should be aware of it's mature content, it's subject matter isn't for the conservative or faint of heart.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image is incredible demo quality all the way and among Sentai's best to date, while the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) lossless mixes are here in English 5,1 and Japanese 2.0 Stereo (with Pro Logic surrounds if you like) versions that are among the best set of choices Sentai has ever offered on a Blu-ray. Hope we see and hear more of this. Extras include AkaKill! Theater, Japanese promos, clean opening and closing animations, and trailers.
