The Air Manta departs for the Revolutionary Army's headquarters. Before Najenda could introduce the new members, Chelsea pets Akame and gives her a lollipop. Najenda then introduces Susanoo as her new Imperial Arms. She has Susanoo show how convenient he is as Susanoo quickly builds a home and cooks lunch for them. Mine and the others find Susanoo more of a butler than a fighter. Although Tatsumi is impressed by Chelsea and Susanoo, he is worried about their team work.
Meanwhile in Imperial Capital, Bols and Run report to Esdeath about their findings on Dr. Stylish's disappearance.

Seryu cries that her beloved patrons who were supported her are all gone. Esdeath embraces Seryu and assures her that she willl grant her wish to eradicate those who killed her loved ones. Meanwhile, Wave walks towards to the courtyard with Kurome with plans to cheer up Seryu because it's what his mother had said, a man cheers up a girl who's down. He arrives too late as he sees Esdeath hugging Seryu affectionately.

The next day, Susanoo and Akame successively catches a giant fish for breakfast. Najenda explains that Susanoo had awaken due to her charm. However, Susanoo mentions that Najenda had resembled his general which was a man. Leone and Tatsumi laughs on how Najenda had looked like a man. A baby Marg panther enters the house to beg Mine for food and then quickly steals Mine's cake. It turns out it was Chelsea in disguise, using her Imperial Arms, Gaea Foundation. Chelsea laughs at Mine's surprised face, causing Mine to get mad at her. During a hunt, Leone and Tatsumi hunt a pack of dinosaurs. Leone notices Tatsumi is able to wield Neuntöte and notes that he is getting to Bulat's level. She quickly finds the leader and easily dispatches the beast. With Night Raid gathered, Najenda asks Chelsea for her impressions of Night Raid. Chelsea admits Night Raid is stronger than her group, but strength is not enough. She mentions that Bulat and Sheele were failures as assassins for their naivete. Her statements causes Mine and Tatsumi to be upset. Akame and Leone look forward to the big feast.
Later that night, Mine desires to defeat and to humiliate Chelsea for what she had said about their fallen comrades and payback for her insults. Mine has Lubbock and Tatsumi decide on a plan to teach Chelsea a lesson. Then, Lubbock comes up with a plan for Tatsumi to attack Chelsea at the bath. Though, Lubbock had ulterior motives to see how Chelsea reacts in anger. If Chelsea isn't so violent, he can peep on Chelsea. Tatsumi sneaks up on Chelsea with a bucket. Then, Susanoo stands up and calls out Tatsumi. He notes that Tatsumi's killing intent wasn't masked well enough. However, it's Chelsea in disguise who wanted to surprise Tatsumi. Tatsumi accepts Chelsea's advice about invisibility instead of being angry at Chelsea. Chelsea is impressed at Tatsumi and mentions that her whole team was killed. She was rough on them because she didn't want to experience that again. When Tatsumi smile at how Chelsea is naive, Chelsea blushes and splashes Tatsumi to regain composure. She warns Tatsumi that if he ever did this again, she will cut off his thing.
On the streets, Run asks Esdeath about a selection of individuals who fit Tatsumi's preferences. Esdeath refuses to meet them since Tatsumi was the only one for her.
