Richard of PopCults.com writes "There is again a changing in the pace of the story but it picks up the series and starts to take it all towards what is promising to be a bloody and tear-jerking conclusion. Akame ga Kill! is everything I was expecting and more in this series and leaves me wanting to watch every episode in one binge effort just to see how it all plays out again. I know the story, I know how things end; but going back, rewatching these episodes and looking at all the little things that make AgK! great is a ride I love taking again and again."
