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.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.10_[2014.12.15_23.11.11]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.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 24 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.19_[2014.12.15_23.11.26]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.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 23

What the hell is going on with Sword Art Online lately? I don’t understand where they are going with this. What is the point of it now? The story has been going downhill ever since Kazuto wrapped up that Death Gun nonsense.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.51_[2014.12.15_00.15.55]I do not see the value of Asuna bringing a sick girl to school with the help of a virtual presence device in the form of a webcam and microphone. I watched that scene twice in order to figure out the meaning behind it all. I can only imagine that it’s Asuna’s personal wish to help this girl out because she feels really bad for her.

That being said, I am glad that Asuna finally mustered the courage to confront her strict mother. Yeah, yeah… I am aware that she used that game in order to confront her, which make it slightly less impressive if you ask me, but she succeeded in making her point. Her mother finally agreed and Asuna has the green light to do whatever she wants (for now).

Akame ga Kill! episode 23

Amazing episode. To think that the next one will end it all. Why did Akame ga Kill! not get twenty-five episodes? I bet all of the viewer’s would’ve loved to see another episode, especially since things just got really good.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.51_[2014.12.09_00.02.48]All hell broke loose. The emperor and his advisor unleashed their final trump card, an Imperial Arms unlike any other, supposedly the strongest of them all. This enormous machine-like suit was used to blow up part of the city in seconds. It would’ve wiped everything out of Tatsumi and that other dude weren’t fighting him off. That boy completely lost his mind. The only one that he still listened to was that evil advisor of his, which would be the last person on the planet that he should be listening to. He just needs to die quickly.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 23 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.13_[2014.12.09_00.03.11]Anyway, Tatsumi, finally getting a step closer to becoming a real man, took it upon himself to take action. He decided to protect the citizens at any cost. This forced him and his armour, which has adopted the name “evolving armour”, to reach a new level, giving Tatsumi more power and the ability to fly.

Did this actually kill Tatsumi though? They made it seem as though he was dead, but I know better. He is one of the favourites. This may be Akame ga Kill! and all, but that doesn’t mean that they will kill off one of the favourites. I believe that he isn’t dead and that they will kill that advisor and/or emperor and escape from Esdeath’s clutches once again.

Sword Art Online 2 episode 22

Okay, weird, very weird indeed. I may not have been paying close attention because I failed to see one thing that made this whole episode quite strange. I am probably going to watch this episode again tomorrow to make sure I didn’t misunderstand.

[HorribleSubs] Sword Art Online II - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.34_[2014.12.07_23.12.17]So Asuna went to see some ill girl after that purple-haired piqued her interest. I failed to understand the connection between Asuna and that girl. It is my guess that they were both Sword Art Online players or something like that, because I don’t think Asuna would involve herself for any other reason than something like that.

Asuna has plenty of problems of her own right now. I don’t think she has time to worry about other people if it wasn’t important. I just can’t see it right now though. Why care about that aids-infected girl? Her condition is terrible and heart-breaking, but no need to get involved. I’ll probably feel stupid about writing this episode after I had the change to watch that episode properly again.

Akame ga Kill! episode 22

So the final battle is about to begin, huh? Good.  Something tells me that this won’t be the last we see of Akame ga Kill! I have a feeling that we might get rewarded with yet another season in the future. Akame ga Kill! is growing in popularity.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.41_[2014.12.01_22.52.56]So the Jaegers suffered a minor setback once again. No problem. It’s not as bad as the revolutionary army. Night Raid has been suffering many great losses during the past few weeks. They lost members and Imperial Arms to Esdeath and her group of Jaegers. The only thing that the revolutionary army has got going for itself right now is that the citizens are rebelling against those in control. They no longer believe in the young king and his evil advisor and are now starting to side with the revolutionary army. Night Raid won’t get another chance like this.

[HorribleSubs] Akame ga Kill! - 22 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.02_[2014.12.01_22.53.20]Akame and her long lost sister Kurome decided that it was time for them to settle things once and for all. Akame can easily win if she just ignores Kurome’s desperate attempt for closure. It is only a matter of time before Kurome dies anyway. I don’t see why Akame would have to put her life on the line in order to kill her sister a little bit earlier.

It has been twenty two weeks and I still fail to understand that fat advisor. I know its power that he wants. Absolute power. But I don’t understand some of his actions. I am sure that he wants to be king, but for some reason he needs that boy, especially now that he’s about to awaken Night Raid’s final enemy for this season. He is truly a strange character.
