Akame ga Kill! episode 17
Ha! I feel as though I have won a jackpot or something. Of course, god forbid me from having such luck, but still… Being spot-on with my predictions is almost as good. I’m not saying the story is predictable or anything like that, but things kind of became clear when they focussed too much on certain things.
Poor Chelsea… I really liked that character. She had a ridiculously cute laugh and always managed to put a smile on my face, especially when she transformed into that animal in order to steal Mine’s cake. I just can’t get that scene out of my head. Nevertheless, she died a badass. She took out Bols by exploiting his weakness of cute things. She pretended to be a little girl that got caught up by that explosion in order to get in close for the kill. She tried to do the same thing with Kurome, which almost succeeded if Kurome wasn’t such a monstrosity, and ended up paying for it with her life, as I kind of expected.
I must say that I never expected for it to happen during this episode. I knew Bols was going to die because of his position and the fact that he used his ultimate attack and failed. I knew Chelsea was going to die because she altered her attitude towards battle (because of Tatsumi?) and got too cocky. She wanted too much too fast.
Did Chelsea deserve it to have her head end up on a stake for all to see? No. I hope that Tatsumi goes berserk one of these days and finishes them off. I know that something like that won’t happen, but I can always be hopeful. Just as long as Seryuu and Kurome die and Leone makes a full recovery. I don’t think I could get used to a one-armed Leone.
