    Lan being there is a big game changer. And Akame is struggling for the first time in her life, against her own sister, no less.

    Lan pointed out iirc in the Rakshasa Arc he couldn't defeat Akame cause he'd need to get close to her to get a good hit as being too far decreases his accuracy, But being too close would mean he'd get in her strike area causing him to retreat.

    Now, there's Kurome to fill out that weakness.

    I'd LOOOOOVE for Akame to die here, but that ain't happening.:(

    It looks like Kurome took something from him and Natala, too (the aura thing), maybe she's powering herself up.

    Using puppets weakens the user, she's just regaining her strength.

    Note that Kurome is the third person to ever hit Akame after Wave & Budo.

    Oh, yeah, that. It's been a while since I re-read the older chapters. By the way, did we ever hear about Yatsufusa's Trump Card?

    Indeed - but didn't Akame say she was holding back vs Wave?

    I'm waiting for the translation to clarify that. It surely didn't work on them the last time, so there must be a reason. After all, they don't look "cursed" as her living victims do.

    Akame dying would be brilliant. And it would be a brave move that could potentially save what has become a floundering series.

    I think most people are rooting for Kurome here.

    uh they have been prepping wave to lose his shit, use more than 1 Teigu and die in the fight against Tatsumi. He's not joining nightraid or taking Tatsumi's place.


    It kind of boggles my mind how people want Kurome to win when

    -she is already dying by herself
    -she's fighting on the wrong side
    -she's not gonna be with wave regardless


    people seem to think Akame's fights are so boring or something, they are very entertaining to me *shrug*

    I personally don't care, they're clones of each other the only difference one finally went nuts. The other has the possibility of joining but don't act like her dying does anything besides have her join the main protagonist's fate as well.
    What the heck have you been reading? Wave is being prepped to go just as crazy as his non-official waifu and for Tatsumi to put him down. :lmao

    Her fights are boring since they have absolutely no suspense and they're one sided 99% of the time.

    What was even the point of zombie Ran? Well, maybe in the next chapter, he'll explode into confetti or something.

    Now it makes sense why he didnt do anything in the anime, his only purpose was only getting revenge on Champ, Takahiro had no more plans for him.

    Wave will show up only to find out Kurome died, then he goes berserk?

    2016 is gonna be good and bad, the Megazord :lmao.

    Actually, I get the feeling that he had some other plans for him in the beginning (like that part early in the manga where he stands looking all evil, and heck, he actually seemed a lot more ruthless back then too), but then ditched them and wrapped up his character with a mini-story arc because he wasn't motivated enough. Remember all those descriptions of Ran as "mysterious"? Well, turns out that he wasn't all that mysterious after all.

    Question is, why even turn him into a puppet if he ended up not mattering? And why include him in the anime at all?

    It's so sad seeing the extent of Kurome's brainwashing and what it did to her.

    I feel so sorry for Akame, she fights for the people but can't save the person she loves the most. You got to admire her integrity, it would've been so much easier if she stayed with the Empire.

    The fight is pretty cool, it's nice to see the sisters go all out for once. Looks like next chapter will be the resolution. Can't wait for Wave to realize he wasn't able to do anything for Kurome, he's tears will be delicious.

    It's difficult to say what's gonna happen. The most likely outcome is that Kurome dies in the hands of her own sister, but... with this manga you never know. I still go with the above, but at the same time there are some clues this might head to a different direction altogether.

    One is willing to stay and fight for the empire, has attachments to her fallen comrades in the empire.
    The other willing to fight for the people and change the world by crushing the empire.
    Both sisters agree that their ideals override their love for each other.
    It's inevitable. Kurome will die.

    This series is so goddamn stressful to read whenever a big fight happens. Those mega drugs are fuckin crazy...Kurome actually had the upper hand on Akame at the start :huh Well now that all the zombies are dead, it's down to good ol' 1v1 action again. Obviously I want both to live, but yeah...Kurome is probably gonna die here (with Wave arriving shortly thereafter, and going fuckin super berserker mode).

    As much as that makes sense chances are she's down cold and alone on the ground as her last thoughts are of him and Akame.

    Any similarities with the anime end the moment the manga goes deeper in developing the fraternal relationship between the sisters. The fight is also going kinda different and Ran is accomplishing his role as Kurome's guardian angel.

    And make no mistake. Once Kurome dies, Wave will completely lose his shit, because unlike in the anime, his relationship with her has been developed a hella lot more, and we also have the foreshadowing he's going to wield a second teigu, which will push his body far beyond what he can handle.

    The climax of Akame ga Kill in the original work is being headed a completely different way.

    Obviously there is no scanlations of all the chapter zero's?
    Otherwise you would have posted them?
    I've never read not one chapter.
