The February issue of Square Enix's Gangan Joker magazine is announcing on Wednesday that a television anime adaptation of Takahiro and Tetsuya Tashiro's Akame ga KILL! manga is greenlit. TOHO Ad Co. registered the domain "akame.tv" on January 8.
The dark action fantasy manga follows the title character, Akame, a girl who was bought, brainwashed, and raised by the Empire as an assassin. After meeting Akame, a boy named Tatsumi vows to stand up to the evil of the Empire.
Japanese game developer MinatoSoft has been teasing four projects tied to Takahiro, including the Shōjo-tachi wa Arano o Mezasu game and an Akame ga KILL! project that will be announced on Wednesday.
