Kill la Kill - Akame ga Kill! - Netflix
Akame ga Kill! (Japanese: アカメが斬る!, Hepburn: Akame ga Kiru!, literally meaning “Akame Slashes!”) is a Japanese shōnen manga series written by Takahiro and illustrated by Tetsuya Tashiro. It started serialization in Square Enix's Gangan Joker in March 2010. The story focuses on Tatsumi, a young villager who travels to the Capital to raise money for his home only to discover strong corruption in the area. The assassin group known as Night Raid recruits the young man to help them in their fight against the corrupt Empire. The series is known for its graphic content. The series was licensed by Yen Press in June 2014. A prequel manga focused on Akame's backstory, Akame ga Kill! Zero, began serialization in Square Enix's Monthly Big Gangan in October 2013. A spin-off sequel, Hinowa ga Yuku!, began serialization in 2017. An anime television series adaptation of the main series premiered in Japan in July 2014. This is the second work in the Japanese game developer MinatoSoft's Takahiro IV Project. The anime began airing before the manga was complete; as a result, the plot differed between the two, especially the ending.

In 2007, Takahiro was asked to do a manga for Square Enix magazine. He originally came up with the idea of an “all-female band of assassins, and the protagonist is a boy who is captured by them and has to work for them.” After his editor approved the idea, he waited on serialization until his company had stabilized and had released two other titles, during which he developed the characters, story and world. In August 2009, following the release of Majikoi - Oh! Samurai Girls, Takahiro looked for an artist for the serialization, and recruited Tetsuya Tashiro to do the illustrations. He liked Tashiro's ability to draw fast-paced action scenes and that he can draw cute girls.Vol. 1 postscript In developing a chapter, Takahiro would write the script first and then have Tashiro determine the panel layout. Takahiro would occasionally get feedback on plot ideas from Tashiro and the editor.Vol. 2 postscript
