There might be spoilers here so if you don't want to be spoiled, don't read the second to last paragraph. There are so many people that came to this series for the yandere girl Yuno Gasai. There are many reasons to like her though. She's a Dark Action Girl, Ms Fanservice (despite being 14) and a huge fetish for many people is her yandere personality. While I admit that she is the Queen of Yandere, I feel like I should point out the other characters. While each character is indeed fleshed out, they're all killed by Yuno because they all dare to get in the way of her relationship with the main guy Yuki. However, what disturbed me was how the author treated Yuki's other love interest Aru Akise who is a guy. Now since this is just an opinion, I felt like the author favored Yuno over Akise not because she was the main girl that would get Yuki but because of Unfortunate Implications. To sum it up, Akise while a nice guy most of the time is constantly trying to warn Yuki of the dangers with getting in a relationship with Yuno. Yuki doesn't listen due to Stockholm Syndrome but the fact that all that Akise does is for nothing from the end of the series, the fact that he ends up another victim is what bugs me. Out of all the deaths, why is his the most gruesome? Is it because he's the rival that gets in the way of the main pairing? Or is it because the author is homophobic and wanted his death to be the worse? Whatever the case, I did not like how the author handled this character and while Akise might be the lead in Paradox, what happens to him in the series is a stab in the back if Paradox was read before the main series. Other than that though, the series is REALLY good. The pacing is fast, the battles don't get boring and there are points in the series that will make you laugh (rarely) and cry (often). If you don't like yandere girls though, then this is not the series for you. Otherwise, if you have a fetish for these types of girls, I would recommend picking it up and reading it. The anime comes out this fall.
