Akame ga Kill! Episode List


With Daidara dead, Liver confronts Bulat and explains that Esdeath had saved his life while that made me a servant indebted to Esdeath. Despite his general being his enemy, Bulat vows to complete his mission. Liver reveals his Imperial Arms which controls and causes the water to gush out of their barrels. He is grateful to be battling Bulat in the middle of the sea which gives him a great advantage. Then, Liver attacks first with his Water Spirit Cannon. Bulat blocks it with his spear. Nyau wakes up and attempts to back up Liver with his flute. Tatsumi jumps from above with a downward slash to interrupt Nyau. Nyau unleashes a barrage of attacks with his flute. When Tatsumi tries to counter, Nyau jumps behind Tatsumi and kicks him. Tatsumi calls out that Akame is faster than Nyau, insulting Nyau. Feeling Bulat's punch to his stomach earlier, Nyau is losing his breath. Nyau and Tatsumi argue over who will win. Liver shapes the water into a giant serpent to attack Bulat. Bulat slices the serpent instead of dodging it. Now that Bulat is in the air, Liver attacks immediately with Dark Stream Spear, multiple geysers from the ocean converging on Bulat. Bulat's mask breaks a bit upon on impact.

In Liver's past, he notes that he understood Bulat's determination. Liver controls the water to make multiple dragons for his Water Dragon's Divine Conquest which all blasted Bulat. However, Bulat is still alive and attacks Liver who has drop his guard. Nyau intervenes by charging at Bulat. When Bulat knocks down Nyau, Nyau smiles that Bulat has missed his chance to take down Liver. On the ground, Tatsumi apologizes to Bulat for not holding down Nyau long enough. Because of the damage inflicted by Liver, Bulat's Incursio Armor has been released. Confident, Liver mentions that this fight is over. Bulat points out that Liver's ears are bleeding which indicates Liver's body is worn out. With Bulat and Liver unable to use their Imperial Arms, Liver asks Bulat to serve Esdeath and not the Imperial Capital.

After Bulat turns down Liver's offer to join Esdeath's army, Liver uses drugs to enhance his strength after noting that they have to rely on swords. Bulat equips his sword, and he clashes with Liver in one-on-one duel. Bulat breaks Liver's sword through sheer will. With Liver bleeding lots of blood, Liver smiles and resorts to his hidden technique, transforming his blood into blades. Bulat swings his sword to deflect Liver's attacks. However, some blades hit Bulat. Liver dies after using his final technique that uses up his life force. On his dying breath, Liver explains why he joined Esdeath's army. He states that Esdeath has offer him a place in her army. He idolized Esdeath. Bulat coughs up blood, and he realizes he has been poisoned by Liver's final attack.

Knowing it's a draw, Bulat reminds Tatsumi that the battle isn't over. Nyau plays his flute and activates his flute's hidden ability. He enhances his strength and body. Bulat entrusts Tatsumi with Incursio's Key. Nyau laughs at Bulat's desperate move. Bulat punches Tatsumi to snap him out of it. He assures Tatsumi is the one who can wield it. Being sadistic, Nyau who wants to slice them up to pieces allows Bulat and Tatsumi to assume their business. Tatsumi prepares to use Incursio. When Nyau attacks, Tatsumi wields the mighty Incursio. Its raw form awakens and evolves to adapt to Tatsumi's body and style of combat.

Tatsumi and Nyau exchange one punch before Tatsumi deals a consecutive, fatal punch that sends Nyau crashing to the wall. Knowing Tatsumi is the one, Bulat dies peacefully with a smile on his face. As it rains, Tatsumi vows to Bulat to become stronger, and he cries loudly in anguish over Bulat's death.

Elsewhere, Kurome sits on a pile of dead bodies. A messenger appears and informs Kurome that she has been chosen as one of the six. Kurome looks eagerly to meet Akame.
