The story of Akame and the rest of the Night Raid group continue in “Akame Ga Kill.” Chapter 69 is already online and already translated in English on Manga Stream .
The battle between the empire and the rebels continue with Night Raid actively participating as they face Esdeath, her ice cavalry and the rest of empire fighters. Before any spoilers and predictions on the upcoming chapters, here’s a brief recap of the recent events.
Akame and Leone were able to infiltrate the palace where they immediately assassinate one of the high ranking officials. Meanwhile, the young Emperor was able to release the Supreme Teigu and even though he was hesitant to call it out because of its ultimate power, the Prime Minister Honest convinces him to use it for the sake of his parents.
Esdeath has identified her point of attack as she commands the ice cavalry to move forward while the rest of the army follows. The leader of the empire army is prepared for anything – including some disruptions from the inside where she has a separate squad dedicated in eradicating the dissidents. Esdeath faces Tatsumi and the chapter ends with Tatsumi struggling to maintain his strength against his powerful enemy.
The upcoming chapters will most likely reveal the true power of the Emperor’s Supreme Teigu. However, Tatsumi might not have enough strength to lead the charge against the empire’s ultimate weapon. On the other hand, Leone and Akame continue their quest to infiltrate the castle where they could end up facing the prime minister.
Youtuber SavageZweiPanda speculates that Esdeath still has more to offer and she will reveal more in the upcoming chapters. This could mean big trouble for Tatsumi and the rest of the rebels. On the other hand, Youtube Zei Doktor predicts that Esdeath will ultimately face Akame as the rebels take on defensive position so they can tire her out.
