Afterwards, Esdeath tries to seduce Tatsumi in her bedroom, but Tatsumi resists the temptation and believes he can convince her to turn against the Empire. However, Esdeath slaps him and explains her motive of "survival of the fittest" as well as her being the one to change Tatsumi, even if it meant protecting his family. After further arguing, they both decide to end the discussion and sleep, with neither convincing each other. However, Esdeath still remains in love with Tatsumi. The next day, Tatsumi meets up with Wave and Kurome. Tatsumi notices Kurome's gluttony, to which she reveals that she is Akame's sister and wants to kill her for betraying the Capital. Later, Esdeath, Kurome, Wave, and Tatsumi go on a hunt at Mount Fake, with Tatsumi and Wave paired together. Both Tatsumi and Wave fight tree-like Danger Beasts with ease and without their Imperial Arms.

Episode 11 - Kill the Mad Scientist
September. 15,2014

Team Stylish carries out their attack on the Night Raid base, and multiple foot soldiers are killed during the assault, while Leone is incapacitated by a member named Trooma. One of the members, Toby, decides to duel Akame, and she is unable to fatally poison him with her Imperial Arm, Murasame, because his body is mostly machine due to it being installed with multiple weapons, but she is eventually able to kill him after he is impaled by Lubbock in an ambush. Meanwhile, Tatsumi fights Kaku, another member of Team Stylish, and is shocked to find that he has possession of Ecstasy, Sheele's old Imperial Arm. The battle is interrupted by Mine, who is also horrified to see Ecstasy, and she quickly kills Kaku, safely retrieving Ecstasy. Trooma prepares to ambush Mine, but is attacked by Leone, who had recovered, and she accidentally kills him with a single blow, to her displeasure. After Night Raid regroups, everyone but Tatsumi suddenly collapses, having been afflicted with a paralytic poison during the battle. When more foot soldiers move in, a biological Imperial Arm named Susanoo intervenes and dispatches them. Outmatched, Dr. Stylish injects himself with a liquid that turns him into a Danger Beast, and he consumes his remaining men. Tatsumi, Akame, and Susanoo fight Dr. Stylish before he is shot by Mine, allowing Akame to slash Dr. Stylish's real body contained in the Danger Beast, killing him. Najenda and a girl observe the aftermath of the battle.

September. 29,2014

The prime minister assigns Esdeath to track down the Danger Beasts from the previous episode and kill them. Later, the Jaegars attack some of the Danger Beasts when they attack a wagon of supplies. The next day, Wave recalls the incident and notes that the present merchants were terrified of Bols despite his kind personality because of his otherwise fearsome appearance. However, Bols tells him that despite his personality, he had killed many people in the past, which understandably earned him a lot of hate. Then, the group is visited by Bols's wife and young daughter who support his work, which surprises Wave. Meanwhile, while doing some training with Susanoo, Tatsumi tells him that he should be considered one of Night Raid, not as a tool. Later, Night Raid travels to another hideout and are given their newest mission: to kill the modified Danger Beasts, essentially helping the Capital they have been fighting. When Chelsea states her belief that the Jaegers should take care of the problem, Tatsumi counters that by aiding the Capital, they would be able to save more lives. Chelsea later confides to Najenda that she believes Tatsumi's kindness will eventually lead him to his death. Esdeath and Run express to each other their beliefs that, since the new Danger Beasts were revealed to have once been human, they were possibly the result of one of Dr. Stylish's experiments, and assume they somehow managed to escape their containment. The following night, while patrolling the mountains, Tatsumi learns about Lubbock's reasons for joining Night Raid, which involved Najenda. Later, Tatsumi travels to the summit of a mountain alone and is suddenly confronted by a wandering Esdeath, who is shocked to see him.

However, Najenda responds that Esdeath would have escaped the island either way before revealing that she knows her personally.

Despite remarking that the Capital is twisted, Wave maintains his loyalty as a soldier. Later, Najenda tells Night Raid about Path of Peace, a pacifist religious organization that is inciting a religious insurrection, and that the Revolutionary Army (the rebellion force Night Raid is a part of) and an allied tribe will launch attacks against the Capital simultaneous to Path of Peace's uprising. She then assigns Night Raid to assassinate Borick, the adviser to Path of Peace's founder who is a spy for the prime minister and is drugging several of the religion's followers into obedience, also instructing them to take out the Jaegers, especially Kurome and Bols, who will undoubtedly respond. The next day, Akame begins expressing her doubts about battling Kurome, but Mine comforts her. Meanwhile, Esdeath splits the Jaegers into two teams: she will attack Najenda with Seryu and Ran, while Wave, Kurome, and Bols will pursue Akame. Wave's team arrives at a canyon, where Mine fires at Kurome, but she dodges the shot. Susanoo arrives and knocks Wave away, leaving Kurome and Bols to be confronted by the entire Night Raid team.

Among those summoned is a gigantic Danger Beast, which Night Raid prepares to battle.

With all of her attacks deflected, Akame is forced to unleash her Imperial Arm's trump-card by poisoning her own body with it, increasing her abilities and making a comeback to the point of wounding Esdeath's left arm. As a result, Esdeath cuts it off to prevent the poison from spreading through her body. With no time left to act, Akame puts all of her efforts into one final strike, forcing Esdeath to use her own Imperial Arm's trump-card to freeze time, which fails to prevent Akame from dealing her a fatal blow. With her last ounce of strength, Esdeath holds Tatsumi's body and freezes herself with it, which shatters both into pieces. Meanwhile, the prime minister is cornered by Leone and activates his own Imperial Arm to destroy hers, but even after shooting her several times, he fails to stop her from beating him to death. Knowing that her wounds are fatal, Leone bids farewell to Akame and dies alone in an alleyway after visiting her old drinking friends for one last time. The revolution finally ends with the Emperor sentenced to death, and before being executed, he asks Najenda to restore the country in his place. Meanwhile, Wave and Run pay respects to Kurome's grave and swear to help rebuild the nation as well.
