Akame ga Kill! episode 21
Oh come on… I don’t really mind if they kill off less popular characters like Chelsea, but now they’re actually killing off badass characters that I really didn’t want to see dead. Night Raid keeps getting smaller and smaller…
First thing’s first; Budo died. Mine used up all of her power and may or may not have damaged/destroyed her Imperial Arms, Pumpkin, in order to finish off that cocky man. What bothers me is that it has been said that he could fight Esdeath on equal terms. Really? Is Esdeath so weak that she could get killed by Mine’s blast? Or does it basically depend on the kind of weapon one is using? Esdeath uses ice attacks and Budo uses electricity attacks. I can understand that Budo might have a bit of an edge seeing as water (and I’m pretty sure ice as well) conducts electricity, putting Esdeath in a rough spot. But no, I don’t think he could ever beat Esdeath.
Susanoo is dead. Once again another great character had to be sacrificed so that Tatsumi, a whinny child that does not live up to his words, may be saved. That was not an equal exchange, even if Budo got killed. Susanoo is what made Najenda strong. Now she’s just another woman with abnormal strength and a fake arm that she can eject towards things. Not really much of a threat.
Night Raid only has five members now. Sure, the Jaegers only have four, but they have Chelsea’s Imperial Arms and Sheele’s Imperial Arms. God only knows how many more of those weapons they have. They just need to find suitable people to wield those weapons in order to outnumber Night Raid. Things are not looking good for Night Raid right now.
