The manga and the anime have slight differences that are apparent. In the anime, Akame ga KILL! is set in a fictional country named Touka with the characters referred to as TOUSENs (they’re people who possess superpowers known as EsIDes). Also, in this version, Akame tries to save her sister from being sent into prostitution but ends up killing both of them by accident when they were attacked by a TOUSEN wielding a dragon blade.
In contrast, in the manga series “Akatsuki no Yona” (English translation is “Akatsuki’s Princess”), it follows the journey of Yona who witnesses an uprising of King Kilos with her best friend Kuran showing up to explain what’s happening
Akame ga Kill! first began with a shonen manga series, written by Takahiro and illustrated by Tetsuya Tashiro. The story follows Akame, a woman who was raised as an assassin for the Empire, and has been ordered to kill her former master and lover; however she finds herself among several other killers in the same predicament. There are also frequent references to Chinese customs.
The anime is very faithful to the source material with only some changes made due to content not being suited for children’s television airing hours or within broadcast regulations.
The manga is better because it has a more detailed storyline.
In the anime, there were many details that were overlooked. For example, Izumi’s night journey is mentioned in passing but never expanded on for the viewer to understand why she feels so resolved in her decision to have Akame kill her. There are also noticeable changes in the animation and character designs which detracts from enjoying it as an anime fan. Some may disagree with me and say these flaws concern minor issues or that they don’t change much of what happens but I feel like at least some parts should be consistent between formats to keep people engaged throughout the story line, even if their preferences differ somewhere else.
I hope this helps! Have a nice day 🙂
Akame ga Kill is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Takahiro. The series has been collected into ten volumes as of December 2012, and an English translation was released in North America from Chuang Yi (formerly Speedy Manga) on March 2nd 2015. An anime adaptation premiered during Tokyo’s TV Asahi’s noitamina block on July 6th 2014 which covered the first four volumes of the overall story line.
The manga runs on a nonlinear timeline, jumping to different moments in time. In the anime, the story is told in chronological order and includes much less background information.nnThe manga is more about character development. The animes are comparatively mindless because they follow every last detail of whats going on with not much care for whether you can understand or not.nManga > Anime in this case I guess?
