Akame ga Kill! episode 09
Is there no end to the surprises in Akame ga Kill!? At one point I think that things are about to progress a little bit in a way that I can somehow see happening, when suddenly the story just takes an entirely different turn.
So Bulat died. Poor guy. He was definitely one of my favourites and I will miss him greatly. I always liked his style; just straight up fighting and no bullsh*t. He didn’t use any dirty tricks or unfair tactics. His entire personality was honest (and strange). That is why I can only hope that the ice queen dies soon for making him die like that.
I kind of pisses me off that Najenda is just going with the flow. Yes, I saw that she used to be on the same side as Esdeath and that they ran missions together, but that was in the past. All Najenda does now is run errands; looking for more meat for her little grinder (aka her so-called justice project where her subordinates die for her).
I thought things were going to change. Tatsumi now has his own weapon that will allow him to defeat opponents that used to be out of his reach and the group in general just got a lot more incentive to work harder to try and kill Esdeath and her army. Never would I have imagined that she would organize a tournament to find a boyfriend and someone suitable to wield Sheele’s old pair of scissors. Something in me hopes that Tatsumi inherits that weapon, too, but that is extremely unlikely. I just hope he makes it out of that place alive now that Esdeath has fallen for him. Poor guy.
