Akame ga Kill! episode 16

This episode was shocking, a little disappointing and quite frankly a little bit annoying. It just pissed me off to no end. Let’s just say that this wasn’t the episode that I had hoped for and that the ending that I am hoping for won’t happen either.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.26_[2014.10.20_23.40.36]Quite a few things became clear to me. For one; Bolls is going to die. I am certain of that. Kurome is not. I can tell that much just by watching the first few minutes of this episode. She will survive this ordeal. The way this usually works is that the enemy loses at least one member and the good guys too. My guess is that Chelsea’s going to die. They focussed way too much on her habit to remain in the shadows, but she broke that habit because of her feelings for Tatsumi. Either Bolls will kill her or Kurome, but she is definitely going to die within the next few episodes.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.26_[2014.10.20_23.40.59]I have been hoping that Kurome would die. Her power is ridiculous, unfair and immoral. But that’s not why I wanted her dead the most. That has passed. The reason why I want her dead right now is because she chopped off one of Leone’s arms. How dare she do that the one of the show’s most lovable characters!? She really deserves as painful death.

I am also disappointed to see Najenda fight. She is nothing special. She only has abnormal strength and that annoying robot arm. Other than that she’s nowhere near Esdeath’s level. I bet that Susanoo, whose new battle mode I absolutely love by the way, would be able to defeat her in a one on one battle. Definitely not worth the wait.

Akame ga Kill! episode 15

I am getting quite nervous again. It seems that we are finally about to see Najenda fight. It took over fifteen weeks to see her do something else other than give people orders, but that’s provided she actually fights next week.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.34_[2014.10.13_22.58.01]So they started the episode off with a smooth kill, huh? Not bad. We already knew what Chelsea could do, but to actually see her in action was quite something. I think she is the best assassin amongst the Night Raid members. She can just sneak in as someone else, assassinate the target and walk out of the front door as some harmless animal. That’s quite brilliant.

And yeah, they once again focussed on Tatsumi’s resolve. That guy has been determined to fight ever since the second episode. The fact that he will be up against an almighty opponent shouldn’t have changed that, so to focus on that so much is quite absurd. He should’ve known that it was foolish to win Esdeath over. It’s that simple.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.27_[2014.10.13_22.59.04]The next episode will be the one where all hell breaks loose. Esdeath is not around (from what I could tell) so they won’t have to worry about that. They just have to fight that pyromaniac and Akame’s little sister, whom apparently has the ability to manipulating the dead into fighting for her. Tatsumi, Akame Leone en Najenda are up against those two, which seems kind of unfair. I’d be damned if Night Raid actually lost another member. Leone cannot die. I’d rather see Tatsumi or Najenda die instead of Leone or Akame. One think I do know for sure; Akame and her sister won’t be dying. I am positively sure of that.

Akame ga Kill! episode 14

I guess it’s time to consider the possibility that Tatsumi might be gay. It’s a possibility. Sure, he has shown us that he is quite curious about the female body, but he could be overcompensating. This could be described as the world of missed opportunities.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 14 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.05_[2014.10.07_22.40.18]So Esdeath has finally found Tatsumi again. She was ecstatic. She finally found her little love toy again after all this time. The moulding could once again resume. Things were even better when that guy showed up and used his Imperial Arms to teleport those two to a deserted island many miles away from the city. I thought that we had hit the jackpot.

So we had a curious teenage boy with no experience whatsoever and a daring young girl with a very sexy body that was willing to do anything. Normal boys don’t even think about the situation. I wouldn’t even think about my way home. I would’ve thanked the gods for that opportunity and done everything in my power to make the best of ‘it’.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 14 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.33_[2014.10.07_22.40.43]Anyway, nothing happened. We are not talking about a normal teenage boy. We are talking about Tatsumi. He wasted a lot of opportunities and after Esdeath was finished telling him about her life’s story… Well… He instantly realized that it was pointless to try and get her to turn against the capital. He realized that she’s a ruthless killer that has no problems with taking people’s lives. He knows now that the only way is to fight her, which would be impossible for him seeing as she would kill him in the blink of an eye. I think it’s about time we saw Najenda fight for once.

Akame ga Kill! episode 13

I am so loving Akame ga Kill! The episodes just keep getting better and better and predicting what will happen in the next one is kind of difficult, even though it should be so obvious. Thank god there are plenty more episodes to come.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.28_[2014.10.01_23.38.09]I think the first half of the episode can be overlooked in this review. It wasn’t extremely eventful. I knew about that weird pyromaniac and the fact that he has a loving family and everything. I knew that Tatsumi is getting stronger and is training every day. So yeah, I think it’s safe to just skip over that part and get on with more important stuff.

It was kind of surprising to find out that Lubbock, the Night Raid clown, has feelings for Nejanda. It was also quite surprising that he was a rich and talented prick before he laid eyes on Najenda and joined the army to follow her. That is some insane dedication. I truly hope, even though he’s kind of a perverted idiot, that he gets his wish someday.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.09_[2014.10.01_23.38.38]Now then, Esdeath has once again laid eyes on Tatsumi. She came falling down from the sky (literally) as Tatsumi was out on patrol with Lubbock. Could things get any better? He will once again be leashed and forced to sleep beside a busty beauty… Damn him! Where the hell is my busty beauty? I want one too! Hell, give me two or three of those! Sure, I have no idea what to do with any of them, but I’d still like at least one. That’s all I know. Not that it matters. My mind if completely focussed on Tatsumi’s response. Will he transform and run? Or will he be captured once again in order to be trained to become Esdeath’s perfect boy toy? I want to know!

Akame ga Kill! episode 12

Is it just me or was the WTF-factor a little bit higher during this episode? People didn’t get cut down or torn to piece this time, but it was still a bit weirder than usual. Will I ever get used to it? Well, probably not. Nor do I need to.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.22_[2014.09.24_22.22.18]So the team acquired two new recruits, one of which actually turned out to be Najenda’s newest weapon; a human Imperial Arms by the name of Susanoo. I don’t really like that. I want to see Najenda fight someone. Now she just got herself a mobile weapon that does as she orders, so it’s probably going to be a long time before we get to see her fight. She will be using Susanoo to do her dirty work. In fact, there’s a good chance that we only get to see her fight against Esdeath near the end of the show, provided Tatsumi doesn’t win her over after all.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.39_[2014.09.24_22.22.21]This new Chelsea character is something else. She has quite a big mouth and doesn’t mind saying what’s on her mind. Still, her abilities are very useful and could prove to be fatal and funny at the same time. That scene where she transformed into a little animal in order to steal Mine’s cake was priceless. I watched that scene about four or five times before I had enough.

I was also a little bit surprised to see Tatsumi used that spear-like weapon. I know it’s part of Incursio, but I honestly thought that the weapon would take the shape of a sword or something. After all, Tatsumi’s a swordsmen. I still think that that weapon doesn’t really suit him like it did Bulat. Not that it matters. Tatsumi will soon after to worry about fighting off women like Esdeath and Leone, whom also has a little eye on him I think.

Akame ga Kill! episode 11

Ugh… Don’t you think it’s a little bit morbid how some of the “heroes” are simply replaced by other characters? Two characters get killed and get replaced soon enough by two knew characters… I guess the grinder needs more meat.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.53_[2014.09.17_23.09.01]So this so-called doctor invades Night Raids’ base by unleashing his formerly human puppets to do his dirty work. Not only was it disturbing to see how gay they all looked, but I think it’s also quite uninspiring that most of those characters looked exactly the same. Was it really so much trouble to give those characters unique features? They looked the same, wore the same clothes, talked the same and they even used the same fighting moves. No wonder they were all cut down so easily when one of the newbies showed up to strut his stuff to impress his teammates.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.50_[2014.09.17_23.10.25]So this guy, Susanoo (reminds me of Naruto Shippuuden), has the same kind of ability as Seryuu’s Imperial Arms. Instead of having a pet of his own that grows a few feet tall and whatnot, he himself is the weapon. His body, too, has a core that you need to destroy if you want to defeat him. Otherwise he, too, will keep regenerating, just like Coro.

Am I disappointed in the end? A little. I think it was a damn shame to get rid of Bulat. Nevertheless, we have two new characters that arrived to help out Night Raid in the fight against the ice queen and her powerful henchmen. I just hope that Seryuu gets to die first. She needs to die. Oh, and I wouldn’t mind if Esdeath were to capture Tatsumi again. I kind of liked those scene, hehe.

Akame ga Kill! episode 10

This was one seriously messed up episode. There might be some possibility that Tatsumi is gay, too. No man would’ve done what he did in that situation. No man. Still, the episode lived up to my expectations. I have no complaints whatsoever.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.17_[2014.09.10_23.54.44]Remember how Tatsumi got captured by Esdeath last week? Of course you do. Millions of fans all over the world waited for a whole week to see how Esdeath would train Tatsumi to become her pervert love toy. I am obviously one of those fans. I still cannot understand how Tatsumi passed up on the opportunity to defile Esdeath’s body. Instead he tried to convince her to join Night Raid. As if Esdeath would simply switch sides because some weak guy asks her. Things would’ve been different if Tatsumi managed to successfully impregnate her, thereby gaining some leverage. But hey, that’s just how my messed up mind works, and it’s how I would’ve done it.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_14.20_[2014.09.10_23.54.58]I was actually unpleasantly surprised when I saw that fish fanatic, Wave was his name I believe, transform, too. It seems his Imperial Arms was based on Incursio, Tatsumi’s current Imperial Arms, and that Incursio is just a prototype. I was under the impression that the Imperial Arms where all somehow created during a short period of time, so I never really thought that there were prototypes.

Putting that other guy side that’s about to find Night Raid’s base… I am pretty sure that this whole Incursio thing can go three ways. Either those two Imperial Arms are equal in power, in which case Tatsumi will lose because he lacks experience, Wave’s Imperial Arms really is stronger than Tatsumi’s, in which case Tatsumi will definitely lose, or if Tatsumi’s Imperial Arms, being a prototype, actually ends up being ‘special’ and therefor stronger, in which case Tatsumi has a chance of winning.

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.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.27_[2014.09.03_23.42.57]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).

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_12.21_[2014.09.03_23.43.29]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.
