Akame ga Kill! episode 24
Well, this certainly turned out to be a very mediocre ending. I had such high hopes for Akame ga Kill! I even dreamt about a continuation and what would happen. All of that got destroyed by this dreadful final episode.
So Tatsumi died after all. He powered up at the very last second in order to stop that crazy emperor from destroying the empire and he lost his life in the process. Sure, he will be remembered and everything, but come on… How is this a decent ending? I don’t really care if the protagonist dies in the end. Akame ga Kill! is the sort of show where even the most favoured characters tend to die. I just think it would be a damn shame to kill off more and more in pursuit of an ending that would or, in my case, would not satisfy the viewer. I am just very disappointed.
We all knew that Esdeath would get killed. Could’ve seen that one coming from a mile away. Although I must really admit that Akame surprised me once again with that mode of hers. She was superb. The one weapon that kills people is what made her strong enough to kill Esdeath. That’s pretty poetic. With Esdeath locking herself and Tatsumi up in ice? I am okay with that too. Shows that she really cared of him after all.
What I absolutely despised and refuse to accept was the fact that Leone had to give up her life in order to defeat that evil advisor. She may have completely destroyed his face, which coincidentally gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside, but she ended up getting shot after her Imperial Arms was destroyed. She ended dying in a dirty alley. Alone. What a terrible ending that was! She deserved way better than that.
