Esdeath Grabs Tatsumi's Hand

Esdeath grabs Tatsumi's hand.

While the Jägers are carrying out their mission to wipe out a group in the outskirts of Imperial Capital, Tatsumi is with Esdeath, watching the group from afar. Tatsumi thinks about escaping, but his hand is grabbed firmly by Esdeath. At the entrance, Seryu shows off her two of her Judgement of the Ten Kings, #5 and #7. Dr. Stylish remarks how magnificent his invention is. Kurome kills a few men while Wave takes down an enemy around the corner and trying to look reliable in front of Kurome. Kurome mentions she knew the guy was there, making Wave feel useless. Bols easily burns down the enemies with his flamethrower. When some of the men try to escape, Run uses his Imperial Arm and fires feathers of an angel right through the men, killing them.

Amazed by the Jägers' powers, Tatsumi hopes to persuade Esdeath to the Revolutionary Army's side. Esdeath remarks she will train Tatsumi well. In Esdeath's bedroom, Tatsumi tries to be determined until Esdeath arrives with only her shirt, open to reveal her ample breasts. When Tatsumi asks Esdeath if she loves him, Esdeath immediately steals a kiss from Tatsumi. Tatsumi states that he is joining the Revolutionary Army and requests Esdeath to join him. He argues that he and she will be enemies if this continues. Esdeath states that Tatsumi will be only her sole lover. Tatsumi wishes for a kingdom where everyone can live as free as they can be. Esdeath argues that she cannot understand the weak and states that the strong lives while the weak dies by order of natural selection. Tatsumi refuses to accept Esdeath's principles and begs her to change it if he would accept her. Esdeath vows to change Tatsumi as she longs for Tatsumi's smile and everything about him. Tatsumi tries to get away when Esdeath asks him to sleep in bed with her. She promises him that she won't do anything to him. As Tatsumi heads for the shower, Esdeath realizes she could have shower with him, but she will wait for another opportunity.

Earlier, Esdeath introduces her lover, Tatsumi, to Tatsumi and asks Bol about advice in love. Bols informs Esdeath to never give up. The next day, Wave sees Tatsumi all sleep deprived. Tatsumi could not sleep as Esdeath was using him as a hug pillow. Wave tells Kurome to eat more seafood, but he gets insulted by Kurome who remarks she might smell like fish. Tatsumi notices similarities in Kurome to Akame and asks Kurome about her relationship to Akame. Kurome confirms Akame is her older sister and that she longs to kill her beloved sister. Esdeath arrives and asks the group to head out in a Danger Beast hunt over at Fake Mountain. Hiding behind the entrance, Dr. Stylish is suspicious about Tatsumi.

Over at Fake Mountain, Tatsumi and Wave take out tree-like Danger Beasts. After the battle is over, Wave finds Tatsumi missing. Tatsumi has used his Incursio to make his retreat. Concerned about Esdeath's punishment, Wave equips his Grand Chariot armor and finds Tatsumi, thinking he is Bulat of Night Raid. He attacks Tatsumi and points out that they carried heinous acts against the empire. Tatsumi argues that they are not evil people and jumps to get away and to avoid further confrontations. Wave catches up to Tatsumi easily and delivers a powerful kick, sending Tatsumi into the river. Wave tries to track down Tatsumi. However, Tatsumi uses his invisibility to trick Wave. When a lion-like Danger Beast encounters Tatsumi, Akame quickly kills it. Lubbock quickly grabs Akame and Tatsumi and head home.

Meanwhile, Seryu reports to Esdeath that she couldn't find the enemy as Esdeath has Kurome punish Wave. Run asks Esdeath what to do with Tatsumi. Esdeath responds that her subordinates live takes priority. Later that night, Dr. Stylish finds the Night Raid's hidden base due to his subordinates' tracking skills.
