Riddle Story of Devil – “Class Black” Assassin Roll Call (Part 2)

riddle story of devilTwelve female assassins. One target. Last week, we documented some of the deadly ladies featured in this season’s simulcast Riddle Story of Devil (AKA Akuma no Riddle), in which twelve girls are given the opportunity to make their wish come true—if they can just manage to murder their classmate, Haru Ichinose, in cold blood.

 

We’ve posted the last six ending songs and more information about the remaining assassins. Check them out below!

 

The complete series is now streaming on FUNimation.com/riddle-story-of-devil. Meet the other assassins, and watch to find out what happens to Haru and her protector, our strong and stoic heroine Tokaku.

 

 

Assassin: Suzu Shutou

Song: Suzukaze

Voice Actress: Chika Anzai

Weapon of choice: riddles

Suzu’s approach to assassination is as unconventional as she is, as she allows Haru and Tokaku a chance to survive by playing a game of life or death. Her body has a strange condition that has led to loss of love in her life, and she wants to win the game to find a cure.

Riddle Story of Devil – “Class Black” Assassin Roll Call (Part 1)

 

Twelve female assassins. One target. This season’s simulcast Riddle Story of Devil (AKA Akuma no Riddle) revolves around an assassination game at the prestigious Myojo Academy, where twelve girls in Class Black have the chance to make their wish come true—if they can just manage to murder their classmate, Haru Ichinose. One assassin, the lone wolf Tokaku Azuma, finds herself inexplicably drawn to her would-be target and decides protect Haru from the others instead.

 

Each assassin has a very distinct personality, history, and fighting style, and the show features a different ending song for every episode, each sung by a different character from her perspective. We’ve posted the first six ending songs with a little info on each girl. Check back on Friday for the rest!

 

The 12th and final episode of Riddle Story of Devil just went up yesterday! Click here to watch now. Be sure to watch the simulcast—if you’re a binge watcher, now’s the perfect time. Remember that our home video releases are highly dependent on simulcast numbers, so if you want your views to count, watch it this week before the end of the simulcast period.

 

 

Assassin: Tokaku Azuma
Song: Paradox
Voice Actress: Ayaka Suwa
Weapon of choice: knife
Tokaku, our cold and stoic heroine, possesses amazing fighting ability and reflexes, and comes from a long line of assassins. For reasons she can’t quite articulate, Tokaku decides to resist the assassination game and instead chooses to protect Haru from their bloodthirsty classmates.
