New review at Girls in Capes: Akuma no Riddle, Vol. 1

New review up at Girls in Capes:

The best way to describe this manga is a schoolgirl assassination action manga with undertones of yuri romance. Tokaku is a star student at her original school of assassins, presented in the prologue as totally cold. Yet the warmth of a girl like Haru, who wasn’t raised to kill people, starts to melt her, and even after their first meeting, Tokaku is already a little attached.

While Tokaku’s assassin exploits may seem like the biggest draw to this series, the real star of Akuma no Riddle is Haru, the eternally optimistic assassination target, who tells Tokaku quite firmly that she wasn’t born to die — she was born to live.
