|Akame ga Kill! Episode List|
As Esdeath and Tatsumi reunite, Lubbock senses someone ascending the mountain quickly, so he decides to hide his presence from this mysterious intruder. Esdeath asks Tatsumi why is he here. Tatsumi replies that he was testing his skills and that he hasn't join the Revolutionary Army. Esdeath feels Tatsumi's shoulders and notes he has leveled up. After hugging Tatsumi affectionately, Esdeath sense the presence of Syura who thought he had hidden pretty well. Esdeath threatens to torture Syura. Before she could move, Syura uses his Imperial Arms, Shambala, to teleport Tatsumi and Esdeath to a tropical island. Tatsumi thinks this is a hallucination and asks Esdeath to hit him. Instead, Esdeath steals a kiss from Tatsumi. She notes that they were teleported to a real island after sensing their surroundings. She conjures an ice pillar for them to get a better view of the island from above. Esdeath hugs Tatsumi as she assumes this is a date.
Then, a giant Danger Beast, that is quite similar to Dr. Stylish's form, emerges to attack Esdeath and Tatsumi. Esdeath impales the beast with multiple ice spears. Tatsumi points out that the person on the forehead is a weak spot. When Esdeath misses with Grau Horn, Tatsumi runs on the ice path created by Esdeath and stabs the person. Impressed by Tatsumi's bravery, Esdeath kills a second Danger Beast with an enormous, spherical chunk of ice. Unknowingly to Tatsumi, Esdeath is drawing a cartoon of her and Tatsumi as she tells him that the need to investigate. Later, Esdeath and Tatsumi explores the island to see if anyone is living here and to gather information on their whereabouts. That night and by the shore, Esdeath finds out that this island is to the far southeast based on the stars. She asks Tatsumi what he wants to do, and she assures him that she has a plan to return home. Arriving to the area where they were teleported, Esdeath and Tatsumi finds the spot glowing.
As they wait, she embraces Tatsumi and looks forward to knowing more about Tatsumi. In return, Tatsumi can get to know about Esdeath. Tatsumi mentions how he learn to fight with a sword as well as forging weapons. Esdeath explains she is from the northern border and part of the Paltas Clan. As the chief's daughter, she hunts prey on the regular basis. Her father teaches her how to harvest materials from capture, living prey. Esdeath's father notes that Esdeath lacks something after acknowledging her as a great hunter. When Esdeath is watching ants fight, Esdeath's father mentions her mother die because she was weak. They live behind a philosophy that the strong live, the weak die. One day, Esdeath returns to the village which was burned and ravaged to the ground. She finds her father impaled with multiple spears. Her father states that they were weak and tells Esdeath to be strong.
Afterwards, Esdeath continues to hunt prey until she works for the capital once prey became scarce. Tatsumi asks Esdeath where her Imperial Arm is. Esdeath grabs Tatsumi's hand and points to the crest on her chest. During the flashback, Honest has Esdeath try a few Imperial Arms but none of them fit Esdeath. When Esdeath spots the urn that holds the blood of a Danger Beast that live in the far north, she feels the blood calling to her. Despite Honest's warnings about the blood turning those who drink insane, Esdeath drinks the whole urn's blood. She manages to dominate the power inside her. When Tatsumi asks if Esdeath torture people because of the demon's blood, Esdeath replies she enjoys torture. Tatsumi realizes Esdeath is wicked from the start and that he cannot change her. Elsewhere, Syura releases point B on his Shambala. When a young girl whom slept with Syura asks about Syura, Syura attacks the girl for not addressing his father properly.
On the island, Tatsumi spots an Air Manta and alerts Esdeath about the Danger Beast. When Esdeath chases after the Air Manta, Tatsumi finds the teleportation spot glowing. He informs Esdeath about the teleportation since he feels sorry for Esdeath. Once Esdeath returns to the mountain, she loses sight of Tatsumi who turned invisible to hide his presence from Esdeath.
