Akame Ga Kill Season 2 Release Date & Renewal Status

akame ga kill season 2

Akame Ga Kill season 2 might be happening sooner than you think. If you want to know more about Akame Ga Kill season 2 then, you are at the right place. First of all, let us look back at what Akame Ga Kill is all about.

The story of Akame Ga Kill is not very unique but still, the show is amazing. Akame Ga Kill surprises you in the first episode by taking a complete turn from a mellow and happy to a tragic and sad show. What I love about Akame Ga Kill is that unlike other anime, you build up a connection with the enemies as well. You see that both of sides are just normal people who are doing what they believe to be right.

One of the reasons why some people dislike Akame Ga Kill is that the show kills off people like flies. Honestly, this is a good thing about the show! Akame Ga Kill is a realistic piece of art and shows us that life is very tragic. Loved ones dying is a part of life.

Akame Ga Kill! Season 1 Plot:

Tatsumi, a naïve boy from a remote village is the latest member of Night Raid. Night Raid is the assassination branch of the Revolutionary Army, an uprising assembled to overthrow Prime Minister Honest, whose avarice and greed for power has led him to take advantage of the child emperor’s inexperience.

Without a strong and benevolent leader, the rest of the nation is left to drown in poverty, strife, and ruin. Though the Night Raid members are all experienced killers, they understand that taking lives is far from commendable and that they will likely face retribution as they mercilessly eliminate anyone who stands in the revolution’s way.

Akame Ga Kill follows Tatsumi as he fights the Empire and comes face-to-face with powerful enemies.

Akame Ga Kill Characters:

All the characters in Akame Ga Kill! (Red Eyes Sword) are extremely loveable and very unique like Akame, Leone, Mine, Chelsea, and Tatsumi. They all have their own individual qualities and as I mentioned before, what I really love about Akame Ga Kill is that they show the antagonistic side as well. Later on, in the show, you are also introduced to the Jaegers (who are the enemies of Night Raid), you aren’t like, “That’s a villain so, I don’t like him/her”. Akame Ga Kill shows us their side of the story as well. You understand them and sympathize with them.

Akame ga Kill English Dubbed:

The English dubbed and the English captions of Akame Ga Kill season 1 can be found on Netflix and on the official website Sentai Filmworks.

Akame Ga Kill Anime:

Akame Ga Kill Anime is a beautiful piece of art and some even call it, “Game Of thrones of the anime world”! Its animation is pretty good and the voice actors have also done a splendid job at portraying each character for what they truly are. The direction of the show is good and the show does not seem too fast-paced. The anime version follows the story of the manga at first but later on, it diverges from the story in the manga. Akame Ga Kill can be a good starter anime for someone new to the medium.

Akame Ga Kill Manga:

The Akame Ga Kill manga is extremely good. Many fans of the series like the manga better than the anime. The manga gives you a completely different story as the anime adaption was released before the manga had a chance to reach its finale. Some fans prefer the manga while others prefer the anime. The manga gives us a happier ending as compared to the anime. Many characters who were killed in the anime are still alive in the manga. If you want to read the manga then you will definitely have to start from chapter 1 even if you have watched the anime.

Akame Ga Kill Season 2 Release Date

Most of you might think that Akame Ga Kill can never get a second season but actually, it really can get a second season. The anime did stray from the source material a lot but we can get another season that focuses on the life of Akame. There is definitely enough source material for that. Considering the fact that Akame Ga Kill made a lot of money, there is a huge chance that this prequel will be happening. We speculate that the second season might release somewhere around mid-2020 or it could be at the start of 2021.
