Oh well Mine is dead.
New Akame Ga Kill chapter.
Ripperino in Peacerino Mine.
I want the two or three anons in this thread that doubted me to apologize.
I don't care what anyone says. Mein is gar as fuck. I don't think anyone in this series has ever been this badass.
Also, I hope she actually did call budou a bitch.
I'm sure everyone agrees she was utter badass this chapter.
Problem is that she was badass to the point that it became a deathflag in itself - if she survives NR has a member who can blow away Budo like nothing and hold with Esdeath (at least for a time) on even terms.
>if she survives NR has a member who can blow away Budo like nothing and hold with Esdeath (at least for a time) on even terms.
To be fair, Budo was underestimating mine a lot, and pumpkin's power was stretched to beyond max limits.
I think it would be hard for her to ever match her emotional state in this situation ever again, if she lives that is.
So, what exactly is the plan?
Whatever it is it's working like a treat. Budo's out of things a least for a short while and Esdeath is utterly zeroed in on Mine.
Obviously this is part of the plan, but what's the next step?
Because if it was as simple as Akame and Leone swooping in to rescue Tats right now, that still leaves Mine up shit creek.
How would you guys feel if Budo just as he's coming out of the hole he gets back slashed and killed by Akame? , Nanaja and or Leone untie Tatsumi while Esdeath is beating on Mine and just as she's about to deliver a finishing blow, Armored Tats saves her ?
I wonder how Najenda will take this. I mean, Lubbock has been her personal subordinate even since her days in the empire. I'd assume that she holds some kind of special sentiments for the guy.
Leone is going to sacrifice herself so Tatsumi, Najenda, and Mine can escape.
I can feel it happening.
I just want this arc to be over with.
Most likely to die this arc is Najenda. She literally doesn't have much time left to live.
He was a sneaky intel guy. He was probably in charge of assasinations and shit. Not exactly front line combat.
Also, as useless as it may be, you'll be sad if a pet dog who has been with you for a long time died right?
Thats why Akame and the others are going for the Prime Minister. Esdeath is going to be forced to defend the PM before she defeats Mine so she'll stick Tats with the pointy end before leaving. Cliffhangers abound.
I was working and missed most of the threads. Is there some evidence that the other NR members aren't in the vicinity of the arena?
Despite how well she's done, that kinda seems like they're leaving Mine high and dry.
Teigu can all be pretty OP, but they can also be countered hard. Pumpkin's concept is pretty interesting, but, just as she can draw this much power by taunting Esdeath and Budou, she could be instantly killed by someone closer to her level, like Akame. Pumpkin isn't OP, is counter OP, and even then, Esdeath can still go ZA WARUDO against her and all the firepower in the world would mean nothing.
Pumpkin is pretty interesting, thought it could easily become broken, like the Saiyans' ability to come back stronger after being beaten, in the hands of a character that the author clearly likes enough to make the manga a fanfic at times.
Ironically enough, that's true. Akane is the highest ranked and most senior member of NR after Najeda. Once the boss dies she'd actually have to do something, which is weird to imagine in this manga.
>3.1k BD and DVD sales for Vol 1 of the anime
>Also had an event ticket
>No noticeable boost in Manga sales
White Fox dropped the ball.
Chance Budou is dead: 5%
Cannce Budou is dead next 2 chapters: 15%
Chance Mine is dead next 2 chapters: 60%
Chance Esdeth is dead next 2 chapters: 20%
Chance Nanj is dead next 2 chapters: 50%
Chance Akame is dead next 2 chapters: 5%
Chance Leone is dead next 2 chapters: 35%
Chance Tats is dead next 2 chapters: 5%
There's no one good enough to replace her as the main villain. Budou isn't that antagonistic, and the Prime Minister is a fat blob (of course he'll have hidden powers, but lacks the fucks to be a main enemy in the battlefield).
I really had high hopes when it was announced that White Fox was animating it, after Hataruku and S;G. Now I wish it was somebody who actually gave a shit about the animation regardless of sales, like Madhouse. The way White Fox adapted the very decent artstyle of the manga into the anime is an atrocity, not to mention the terrible budget for anything non-Esdeath related.
Really, what could have been..
He's going to walk out without a scratch, spit a tooth out, and say some cocky line about how was that supposed to hurt. That or he dodged the blast completely, and will thunderstomp everyone from behind. He's most likely waiting on more NR to show up or to kill mine from behind.
Dumping pages from other thread. According to anon she is their "sort of" adopted daughter.
The volume preview is more of an overall idea of the next volume; It doesn't have to be literal.
Jagers and NR did gang up on WH, but that doesn't mean they had to work together.
Implying Whitefox didn't do a shitty animation job with Hataruku.
Hataruku didn't even get a real OP or ED until few episodes later and they scrapped the character designs they used for the original PV that was higher quality than the actual show.
I follow akame just for the threads. I've never seen so much absolutely butthurtfulness ever from one manga. It seriously makes everything else pale.
1. Aniki's death
2. Spear girls death
3. Justice's death
4. Three girls and their doggy
5. Chelsea's death
6. Bols' death
7. Bols' families' death
These were all probably the best reactions. Now we have a big bad that has been talked up the entire manga just randomly get blown away by pumpkin in one panel. Holy fuck when he's confirmed dead next week its going to be even better. This is like the final boss in final fantasy being a random encounter and then the credits roll up.
That ain't gonna happen for at least another 2 volumes which is when the manga series will end with her death and maybe another couple chapters to wrap it up.
Also the anime is probably gonna end with Run's death right?
Good lord what a fucking disaster, I almost feel bad for them. No wonder this chapter just jumped so many sharks, the author is rushing to the end after this fucking embarrassment.
Fuck you Japan and fuck your idol shows that sell like 30k volumes.
I don't give a shit what he will do anymore, fuck that embarrassment.
They both will live. However Mine will win the fight, prove me wrong. Its horribly expected for Mine to die in such a fight so, following AgK way of doing things, she will keep collecting deathflags and live. Seeing how we are in the waifu war scenario over tatsumi, most likely Esdeath will lose the fight, and her will. Remember that feeling weak is her kryptonite.
Any low point can get any lower especially if that lower point involved a
clown raping the daughter and killing the mother.
I watched up to the Ogre assassination for the anime and dropped it because I couldn't handle 2 cours of that QUALITY. I mean, her death was gruesome but it wasn't anything I would've really gotten into a bunch of posting about.
You couldn't even tell what he cut off in the anime it was stupid.
So who's brilliant idea was it to bring Tatsumi's teigu to his execution, knowing what they know about it, and have it sit a meter away from where he is?
Gee I wonder what will happen..
>Still wish Stringbro was alive
>Still wish Najenda will appear with the others, be momentarily shocked by news of his death
>"But...did he use his Trump Card?"
If only if only the woodpecker chimed...
>akame pops out during the esdeath vs mein fight
>swining katana to cut tats free
>budo rushes out of his hidey hole and makes akame slip and cut tats
>tats dead by akame's hand
>akame becomes a character
They had Budou and Esdeath so if they did show up it was supposed to be a curb stomp and a display of "If you fuck with the empire you're fucking with this".
It's not working out so far.
I'm pretty sure it's a false flag.
I'm very anti-Mine but I doubt she's gonna die purely because the author knows how butthurt people would be if she didn't. Also how she dodged multiple deathflags.
I hope he proves me wrong and Mine dies, making way for the actual heroine Akame
No matter how we look at it a slaughter awaits!
No? Are you one of those people thst believe this shit sells 50k a volume? For starters that isn't even good sales, and only one volume out of the ten sold 50k. Everything else sold less.
Becuase there aren't many characters left and there is literally a countdown timer for their deaths approaching 0 and the events that have been building all manga, i.e. the revolutionary army, is in motion.
Aint much place left to go.
>Tatsumi screams so hard his Incursio shakes and flies towards him
>Esdese grabs the Incursio, which sprout spikes in return, leaving a holes on her hand
>Incursio and Tatsumi Reunites, Either he turns into Skull Greymon and rampages
>Or Incursio envelops him like Venom, but he later tames it and turns into Incursio 2.0
If she does die, I imagine Esdeath fans rallying to regain their former holding from having lost a great deal of it from >>115684608. It will be simple revenge for them. I wouldn't be surprised if a thread got 2l posts. If she doesn't die, one can expect floods of tears from a lot of Esdeath fans.
Okay, let's map out the possible developments:
>Mine and Esdeath continue to battle, Esdeath starts to overwhelm Mine
>Budo comes out of the hole, but Najenda takes him on
>Prime Minister gets BTFO by Leone, Wave+Kurome and the remaining Wild Hunt charge but Akame steps in
>Wave jobs again, watches helplessly as Akame slays Kurome
>Izou vs Leone, Leone slays Izou, Dorothea throws a fit
>meanwhile that spy girl Raba saved now sneaks over to Tats and unties him, Tats grabs Incursio and turns just in time to see Esdeath landing a critical hit on Mine (cue /a/ sperging)
>Tats thinks Mine is kill and goes berserk, starts fighting Esdeath blindly
>Meanwhile Budo subdues Najenda and heads towards Tats
>Akame and Leone appears, Akame assists Tats in fighting Esdeath while Leone tries to fend off Budo
>Leone is kill by Budo
>Tats has completely lost it at this point and wreaks unbelievable mayhem, the arena begins to collapse and sink into a sinkhole
>Esdeath and Budo beat a temporary retreat
>Mine caresses Tats' face as he cradles her in his arms and tearfully smiles before DED
>Meanwhile Akame helps up Najenda and the four leave the arena
budo is shit, absolute shit.
I want the word "Duty" in golden letters, melt it and our it into his ass, so hedies a humiliating death in agony.
Fuck this shit, fuck him, kill him, torture him, feed him to pigs.
Humans like him are the most worthless.
>Map out the possible developments
That's only really one route though, not a whole map of possibilities.
>Arena begins to collapse and sink into a sinkhole
Incursio's badass. It's not THAT badass.
>Incursio's not THAT badass
But say Tats has completely lost it and inadvertently removed any limiters. I mean look at Mine's Pumpkin, who would've thought it could be so OP? Esdeath fucking stopped time. Teigu keeps surprising us, I wouldn't be surprised if Tats went apeshit like Ichigo's Full Hollow modo back in Mexico Arc.
I want Mein to fucking die. Not because i hate her in any form. Just that pumpkin needs to be destroyed.
I really like Pumpkin and how makes everyone mad
So Tatsumi is going full edgelord like Kaneki after Mine gets killed right?
it's the only way to warrant the huge power boost he needs since the manga is ending and he's not strong enough at the moment
You fags need to take a chill pill
That's if she was actually trying to kill him. The way she insisted on being the one that kills him and being the one to get his corpse makes me think she was trying to pull off some shenanigans.
Most of the main bad guys are dead, the protagonists long-term goals, revolution and killing the Prime Minister, are coming closer, they're having a direct confrontation with the series enemy power houses.
I think Lubbock's death counts towards it too, I think Tatsumi being the only guy on the heroes team seems like a bit of an odd status quo.
I also have the feeling that Takahiro's not going to keep AkG-0 going much longer, it feels like he's going to kill most of the cast in this arc. I didn't think he'd want to keep the prequel going past the point where the main series ended, so if 0 ends soon, that might be a sign of AgK reaching its conclusion soon as well.
>mine calling Budo a bitch
Perfect way to sum up the entire chapter.
They're not even being serious. That v14 thing especially is from Tokyo Ghoul which hilariously ended at volume 14 before it restarted under a new name. Ishida the troll.
I think this is the first time I've seen Akame display a sense of humour.
>I don't remember /a/ ever give the source about Mine being Takahiro's favorite character
IIRC it was allegedly confirmed by the artist on his Twitter account, someone should go rummage through it.
As far as I remember It was Najenda, who said that the team as a whole, was more important then one member and It' not worth the sacrifice.
Basically, this chapter shits on her words and her character, Nice.
Yeah, this never got mentioned (I think), but for once it's not quite cringe worthy or much of an asspull.
I mean, it IS the most recognizable Teigu they have, and rather strong, too.
>Tatsumi just foreshadowed Mein's death
so at the rate characters are being killed (some with little to no real build up compared to typical shounen) seems like this author is probably going to end the series soon and then make another series that basically the same thing again.
It covers the user, so it doesn't matter. They had no idea that it wasn't Bulat who used it, after all.
>Either way, destroying a teigu is utterly retarded.
Sounds like a typical plan coming from Budo.
He falcon punched the shit out of Incursio and have a thunderball. It's pretty good. But shit, Mein got plotarmor that is always the enemy's powerlevel+1. She should have died several times by now.
Budo have been rather good with his plans, it's the PM that keeps churning out retarded shit for MUH INFLUENCE.
Budo would probably just want to instantly execute Tatsumi and pass incursio to someone in the imperial guard.
It's not how they work or have ever worked, if you get captured then you're grass. They make it clear they aren't heroes, and they always have the long game on their mind rather than the short game.
You're forgetting they have way less members now and they though they were going to rescue two of them.
That's what I think, at least.
Remember when Wave first meet Incursio?
He immediately said "Oh shit it's the Nigh Raid!"
Looks like everyone knows about the NR having Incursio
When Incursio was outnumbered like 10 to 1 and trying to escape. Cheap shots like that is the only thing that beta piece of shit can do, put him in a 1v1 and Tatsumi would have rekt him.
So, what does everybody think about the fact that Esdese was going to save Tatsumi (All for herself, of course) but had her planned ruined by Mine busting in? Albeit, now it does give her the chance to kill a bitch.
The jaegers were put together for the sole purpose to hunt Night Raid. They SHOULD know a thing or two.
Except when it comes to Mein. The point about pointlessness and atrocity of sacrifise of war goes out the fucking window when the authors waifu shows up.
True, but this also works counterwise. I.e. having less members = preserving the strength and preparing strategy. NOT charging full speed ahead.
Also, Esdese and Budou, two strongest in the Empire are guarding Tatsumi. Honestly, this was bullshit, Najenda would think twice in normal situation.
It takes a long time to "charge" and is useless in an actual battle.
Now you all know why Budo never went to war, he would have been dead within minutes of stepping into the battlefield.
He came in from the front and punched his daylight out.
Stop getting so buttmad, Budo is one of the strongest characters in the show but DA PINCHI is apparently invincible.
Also, this isn't DBZ. Being stronger doesn't make you immune to attacks.
>talking shit about Budo for getting knocked out by a megablast
Why not talk shit about Bors for getting killed by a needle? Bulat for getting some aids-infected blood? Chelsea who just got cut up by some zombies?
Budo is a below average fighter who is only a grand general trough family connections, not because he's actually any good.
What have at seen him done to justify his hype? Absolutely nothing.
I don't see a corpse, do you? This show likes to make it clear when someone dies. He didn't evaporate like Kaku. And max 10 seconds have passed in the fight.
Have some patience son, the fight is just starting.
This is the sort of stuff we expect from Wave, not from a character that was supposed to be Esdeath's equal.
Bors wasn't even expecting a fight and was completely defenseless. Same with Chelsea, she was trying to run. Bulat put up a pretty good fight before being taken down. Budo on the other hand saw his opponent, took his time to charge up, and then stood there like a moron as it bounced back and he went flying.
He's being labeled as Esdeath's equal and seeing how Esdeath is, I expect him to be just as OP.
I say it from what I've seen, he's absolutely nothing to worry about.
>not the same rank
Yes, they're still both flag officers.
Otherwise, I meant that people believe he's as strong, because of what his Teigu can do and crap, but because his job involves little actual fighting Esdeath is way more experienced in fighting for herself.
That something was hyped up by propaganda isn't too unusual - remember the german wonder weapons that did barely anything?
>Budo walks out of hole
>"...I was carefree.."
>Spits out a tooth and rips off his destroyed clothes
>"You caught me off guard, i won't do the same mistake twice."
>All this happens while Mine and Esdeath are already fighting
>Budo gets hit by one of Esdeath's ice-spears and makes a new hole next to the first one.
I think I'm safe
Stop being so buttmad because he got blown out. It's shit i know, but he's not out for the count. That he isn't after supposedly tanking that shot is way more than anyone else can say.
We wouldn't get the "Love interest vs Evil Love interest" duel with supercharged Pumpkin otherwise. Takahiro needs to make his waifu shine.
I will die laughing.
>Tells Tatsumi that she knows exactly where to strike on a body to kill, or torture.
>Presumably also knows where to strike to incapacitate, or even induce a death-like state.
>Wanted the corpse.
It's really not that hard to put two-and-two together.
Why mention knowing everything about the human body unless you know some acupuncture shit except instead of a needle, you are doing acupuncture with a sword instead?
Feels like Esdese was gonna pull a Claymore like what happened to Miria in Claymore where the current generation of Warriors pretended to kill Miria by only making her appear dead.
>Budo comes out from the hole largely unharmed
>Akame stabs him in the back like the bitch he is
I disagree. I think all the hating here is nothing more than a blind bandwagoning.
I repeat, Budou was defeated exactly because of Mein's need to shine on the stage, which is obviously retarded.
Nope I'm not having it, nothing Budo has done so far has even hinted that he's on par with Esdeath and together with his privileged background and lack of battle experience I'd say his hype is very unwarranted.
I still don't understand why Pumpkin is a long range sniper weapons when snipers are at the safest place in all tatical combat.
It means Pumpkin would be the weakest sniper rifle known to combat.
Pumpkin's core would have been better placed on a shield or a melee weapon that would allow it to counter all danger.
Budo haven't done anything yet, at all, and that is the problem.
He haven't exhibited competence or any lack thereof, besides getting surprised at how powerful Pumpkins blast is, which isn't surprising.
He's been around for a while now and has done fuck all to convince me that he's Esdeath tier. This chapter is just an icing on the cake.
Budo being strong seems like pure propaganda.
We haven't seen him in actual combat against really strong opponents, though.
Esdese herself said that she was looking forward for a fight with him.
I think I will wait and gather my thoughts.
Is that supposed to be Tatsumi? Looks more like Motoharu from Index.
Either way the deathflags in this chapter are heavy. Whatever his fucking face will probably die, and Mein will probably die due to consistent deathflags in the series. After Mein dies Tatsumi pronounces his hatred for Esdeath and swears to kill her or some shit.
Either way I don't see her living. If she does she's permanent, or atleast sticking around for a damn long time.
Think about it though, he did not get to where he is through hard work like Esdeath did, he was born into it. I bet he's a soft cunt who is only keeping up appearances because muh family tradition.
I dont understand why Esdese didn't join the resistance with Tatsumi. Anyone have a good explanation for her motivations to stay with the empire? Being in a resistance would allow her to fight strong opponents and to assert her dominance over more people. She could have also fucked him if she did.
Maybe so, I wouldn't be surprised.
But really, let's not jump to conclusions so fast. We need at least to see the next chapter to find out what happened to him. I will form my permanent opinion after that.
RA doesn't look impressive at all.
Even the Western Empire's army look more intimidating than the RA.
I can't believe the boss of RA looks like an old boring man too.
I was expecting another Solid Snake.
Under Prime Minister Honest, Esdeath is allowed to basically have free reign to indulge in her cruelty in war as much as she wants. The RA is fighting to end that system. Thus she has a vested interest in keeping Honest in power.
It's not that she's some sort of innocent victim or bystander of the corruption of the Empire, she's a living part of it. She doesn't go around ruining lives for nothing like Shura did but she's shown that she enjoys being able to massacre the opposition. If the RA had their way she wouldn't be able to do that.
RA with her is stronger than the empire. How strong the other members are is a pointless distinction. If she is really so against helping the weak then she should just fight everyone because they are all weaker than her.
But the object of her desire is on the other side, so if either is strong with her, wouldn't it make sense to go with that?
Then again, if that happened, the series would probably be over and it isn't known for good writing to begin with.
>RA's only hope is Night Raid
>the only backup they sent was Chelsea and Susanoo
If they had anything worth this they would have sent it to NR so they could take out the most dangerous opponents since pretty much everyone that isn't a generic mook is in the capital.
