My god was that a terrible cheesy ending and seriously lacked dragon goodness. Tatsumi should have gone berserk and been the one pounce on kill the respective elites. Leone should have been seen as a Leone shaped jaguar spying from a distance, before slinking into the forset.0

'Thus, the emperor was executed before the people. And in stark contrast to the prime minister... He stayed firm and resolute to the very end.'I understand that from the very beginning the Prime Minister was a coward who turned tail as soon as he realized the battle was lost, but I still think it's a bit unfair to compare what was implied to be a more mundane execution and tying someone down and abusing the fact that they're nigh-unkillable to slice them up piece by piece while they're conscious.0

I think the manga was all in all very good. Well balanced, a tad brutal (though plot-wise justified), no "nakama power" preventing the main cast from dying, etc. The ending might seem underwhelming, but it does take time to tie up all of the plot points generated thus far. Most mangas we read don't have closure :).I'm looking forward to reading more works of this author.0

@Guest_65507 - either his, ermm, "equipment" isnt proportional, or the author didnt want to reference the whole "man of steel, woman of cardboard" issue0

Because nothing spells "peaceful new reign of gentle people" than brutally and publicly torturing a man.0

Great ending to a manga that didn't really have any revolutionary story. It's all about death and killing, and if you were expecting more than that then this manga wasn't for you to begin with.0

Thinking about it the whole 'fused Teigu' business is also why Leone had to be written off.Tatsumi's transformation was very dramatic with a lot of build up and side effects, like the dragon trying to take him over and him effectively dying and then being revived, but having to live the rest of his life as a huge ass dragon (of course being a dragon isn't necessarily all bad but a body of that size and form certainly isn't without inconveniences).Leone just popping up being like 'yo I'm a catgirl' now would've undermined that. Practically no build up, with a lot less story importance behind it other than giving a reason why she'd be able to drag the Prime Minister to justice and, perhaps most importantly, simply being a lot more advantageous with practically no downsides other than 'no longer fully human'. All that combined would have made Tatsumi's fate feel awkward, so I can see why the author decided that rather than having the fusion save her life it was more that the fusion brought her a bit more time.Doesn't make me less sad though. Granted a lot of deaths happened in this manga that made me sad, since there were quite a lot of characters who I liked and who died.1

It might just be that I liked the character a lot, but Leone dying like that felt a bit like a copout.Sure, I can understand the idea, but on the other hand if fusing with Leonel boosted her powers enough that suddenly she could just catch those bullets and treat the Prime Minister like nothing the regeneration factor should also have kicked in...I think the main reason was that Leone didn't really have much of a happy ending to her like almost all the others did. They wanted Akame to stand out as being the only assassin who couldn't settle down after the war ended, and I think the author decided that rather than making something up for why Leone wouldn't join Akame they'd rather just have her story have a definite ending.Which still makes me kind of sad.1
