Yes a lot edgier and darker. In one chapter of the manga a girl being sold to slavers and she gets raped by a dog
Not to mention that the anime is a bad adaptation since it skips the Wild Hunt arc and kills of characters who are currently living in the manga.
I honestly kind of like the setting but the way characters are killed off just ruins it.
Just to let you know how bad it gets Akame is the only member of Night Raid to survive the finale
I know right. I’m honestly sick of most edgy stuff in general since now and days everyone just wants to be as grimdark as possible instead of oh I don’t know? Telling a good/fun story.
I’m also kind of getting sick of “anyone can die” because I would rather have characters stay in the story and do things rather then get killed off for cheap shock value.
