Assassinating in style.
Just my luck.
It seems I got stuck with yet another episode where characters that don’t matter die. You know, those ones who appear on those anime news posts for joining the cast, only to die within two episodes of their introduction. Heck, in this case the poor welps didn’t even last a single episode. So yeah, not too much to talk about in that regard.
Death Flag Speculah
As far as Night Raid goes, I thought for sure Lubb would bite the dust when he came across two of the Rakshasa demons. Especially so given his more recent renewed determination to confess his love to Najenda. But I gotta give credit to the guy. He sure knows how to handle himself. Moving on, Akame ga Kill! seems to be giving Mine more and more screen time and interaction with Tatsumi. And if I’m taking that weird bit with the founder correctly, there might even be a romance in the works. Never a good sign, even if it came out of left field. But anyway, it also looks like next episode we get Justice-chan joining the fray, which can only mean Mine will be involved. So if I didn’t know any better, I’d say this bodes poorly for the pettanko gunslinger. But then, Seryuu has already killed one member of Night Raid, and I don’t think she’s a big enough deal to pull it off again.
The start of something beautiful.
No villain so far has succeeded in killing more than one member of Night Raid, and I don’t expect such a thing to happen any time soon, even with Esdeath. So this puts both Seryuu and Mine at level playing field in my opinion. A showdown between the two of them really could go any way, and I suspect whoever comes out on top comes down to which of them has assistance. Since Seryuu hasn’t shown any particular penchant for buddying up with others in combat (she does already have Coro by her side), the number advantage would go to Mine since Tatsumi will likely be with her. In that respect, the scale is tipped slightly in Mine’s favor. So I suppose if someone had to die next episode, it would probably be Justice-chan. She certainly has her comeuppance waiting for her at the hands of Mine.
In summary, nothing really noteworthy happened this episode. Just more setting up for another confrontation between the Jaegers and Night Raid. I guess that means it’s Kara’s turn to shine again?
It’s JUSTICE time!
