Hype anime usually isn't my cup o' tea until years down the line after all the hype has died for the most part down (I didn't watch SAO nor Attack on Titan until they had been put on Netflix because I just don't like people being so hype about a piece of animation only to have that animation not be as good as its hype suggests)... but for Akame ga Kill I knew it would be hype yet I decided to watch the first two episodes when I didn't have anything to do at my local card shop. When I was about to finish episode two one of my friends came up to me and said "don't watch that anime unless you've read the manga." I looked at him, asked "Why" only to be told it has Game of Throne syndrome... well, I had just started reading the first volume of GoT sooo I knew of the syndrome, just hadn't experienced it. Needless to say, I've decided to go ahead and watch this anime because it seems to be the only anime people are talking about (which is pretty shocking considering SAO II is also playing this season).
