Akame Ga Kiru Chapter 16
B1: Using my memento...the seafood I brought from home
B2: To make a big welcoming dinner was a good idea.
B3: But isn't it a little strange that he can cook with that face!?
B5: The spinach needs to go in last.
>It's a bit too early for that.
B8: But...you know Bors-san,
B9: I sure was relieved to discover that you're actually a kind person.
B1: I'm not...
B2: Really all that kind at all...
t/n: Yes she is a general, but seryuu is referring to her in her capacity as the leader of the special squad, not her military rank. Commander or general would work just fine. I leave that decision to whoever scanlates it.
B1: What about you?
B2: What have you been doing with your spare time?
B3: Mostly hunting and torture.
B4: otherwise I study.
B5: But at the moment-
B6: I was thinking...
B7: That I might try my hand at being in love.
Kill The Battle Fanatic
B2: By the way, has the report on the spare teigu come in yet?
B3: Ah...y-yes it has.
B4: The giant scissors teigu that we retrieved from those evil people is currently being held in the main guard office.
B5: But we have yet to find anyone suitable to use them...
B6: And at this rate, the prime minister will take control of them hmm...
B7: That would be such a waste.
B8: In order to find someone capable enough to use them
B9: I say we should put on an entertaining show.
B3: Be careful while heading down.
B4: Wow, this place really does give off a "secret base" kind of vibe!
B5: Right? I'm very proud of it.
B6: But you didn't make it, did you....
B3: Welcome to the capital hideout.
B4: Nee-san, aren't you a little too relaxed!!?
B5: Okay, so.
B6: Mein has finally appeared on the wanted posters...
B7: Therefore the only ones who can walk around the capital openly are us three.
B8: Since my face was seen when I was on that ship
B9: I thought it might have been a little dangerous for me to be out in the open.
B10: Nobody recognized you while you were walking through town, right? So it's all good I think.
B2: Speaking of the city, the special police squad jaegers seems to be all anyone can talk about...
B3: Obviously, since Esdese is their leader...
B4: That's the real hot topic...
B5: Such a seriously dangerous person is...
B7: Seriously, how dangerous can she be?
B8: That's right.
B9: You haven't heard about that episode...
B1: A few years ago
B2: There was a group of savage tribes in the southwest
>That rose up in rebellion against the empire's tyrannical rule.
B3: The empire immediately dispatched a force to go and subjugate them.
B4: The tribes were 10,000 strong, while the empire sent 120,000 to quell them.
B5: The result of the fight would be obvious to anyone.
B7: Those far off outskirts of the empire
B8: Were hell for the empire's soldiers who had been comfortably raised near the capital.
B1: Poisonous bogs and large rivers of mud impeded their advances.
B2: Swarms of poisonous insects and disease had a devastating effect on troop morale.
B3: They were also being relentlessly attacked by wild animals and exotic monster species.
B4: The expeditionary force had all but given up.
B5: The tribes who knew the land well were also constantly conducting highly effective night raids on their forces.
B6: The imperial army was too exhausted to even put up a fight, and many more died.
B1: Growing impatient, the empire dispatched the young but very capable general Najenda
B2: And general Esdese to reinforce the army.
B3: General Esdese.
B4: You seem to be in an unusually sullen mood today?
B5: This assignment doesn't please me at all...
B6: The minister's orders were "Use your teigu to bring this rebellion to a swift conclusion".
B1: I was looking forward to overcoming the local advantages these savages have and crushing them....
B2: Though these orders are just plain boring...
B3: Orders are orders...
B4: Be it wild animals
B5: Or poisonous insects
B6: Or even infectious diseases...
B1: All will freeze before me!!!
B3: What power...!
B4: Of course, using this much power
B5: Leaves me unable to use it again for a little while.
B1: The river was also frozen!
B2: We'll ride across it straight to the enemy headquarters!
B3: My attacks are the same as a light cannon!!
B1: Gun squadron...
B2: To the front!!
B3: Attack while the enemy is in disarray.
B4: Obliterate them!
B1: After the enemy is destroyed.
B2: It'll be time for an enjoyable reward.
B3: I want you all
B4: To violate this town until you are satisfied!!!
B3: Are you watching?
B4: Your home is being ravaged.
B1: Damn you!
B2: Just kill us already!!!
B3: I have great compassion.
B4: But only minimal mercy.
B5: You few alone will be allowed to survive this horror.
B6: You must be joking!
>If you don't kill us now, we'll definitely come after and kill y--
B8: Remember this well.
B9: This is the natural state of the weak.
B10: If you don't like it, just become stronger.
B11: And so--
B1: Even though they had been ordered to make an example of them
B2: They carried out those orders with such horrendous joy...!!
B3: ---and that's what happened.
B4: But wasn't it foolish to plant the seeds of hatred in the ones they let live like that?
B5: I mean, wasn't it just like fanning some smoldering coals into a fire?
B6: That's what Esdese was hoping for. She wants more rebellions, you see.
B7: That way she can continue to enjoy herself and fight in more battles.
B8: ....she's messed up.
>I knew it was a good idea not to mess with her.
B2: She's seriously dangerous.
B3: Would I have just been one more added to the number of hundreds of thousands she's killed if I had...?
B4: She must be an incredible monster for nee-san to say all that.
B5: If you're interested,
B6: I've got something to show you.
B7: Esdese is sponsoring a city wide tournament!
B8: The winner will get a huge cash reward!
>You did say you wanted to send money back to your hometown, right?
B1: Say, prime minister?
B2: About general Esdese...
B3: Why has she started talking about things like love?
B1: Everyone starts desiring the opposite sex when they reach a certain age.
B2: Such as general Nouken when he brings along his ten concubines when he goes to the battlefield, you see.
B3: General Esdese has always been a person that has lived for the thrill of battle....
B4: She's always chosen war over flowers until now.
>But it seems that desire is finally blossoming.
B5: I see.
B6: And for that, she wishes to find someone suitable...
B7: She is a person of great pride.
B8: So she won't accept anyone unless they can meet all of her standards.
B10: But could a man who meets these requirements really exist...?
B1: (Above all, must possess a deep well of untapped ability. I wish to mold him myself into a person of general class abilities.)
B2: (Must be fearless; A person who can hunt the dangerous species of the world with me.)
B3: (Cannot have been raised near the capital. Just like me, must have been raised on the outskirts of the empire.)
B4: (Will be under my direct control, so must be younger than me.)
B5: (One who has a pure and innocent smiling face would be nice.)
B6: Looking at the first requirement would disqualify almost everyone, huh....
B7: Being trained by her to become of general quality would be rough too...
>txt in firs two frames:
>txt in frames 3 and 4: Sounds of the crowd
>txt on bottom: Yaw~~~n
B1: What do you think of these ones, captain?
B2: I think boring fighters
B3: Make for boring fights.
B4: I guess it's too much to ask for someone capable of using a teigu to suddenly appear, huh?
B6: It seems the fight is about over.
>Nobunaga of the dry-goods store!
>txt next to nobunaga: Yeaaaah~~
B8: I'm the winner!!
B9: This next match will feature the final two fighters.
B1: In the east corner!
B2: Karubi the butcher!
B3: In the west corner!
B4: Tatsumi the blacksmith!!
B1: One of them is just a kid, huh.
B3: That's an interesting cover.
B4: Can he really use the forge?
B5: Not as well as me,
>But he has some skill.
B6: You're a tiny one, ain't you?
B7: That prize money is already in the bag. Kukuku
B1: I may have been excommunicated, but I'm a 9th level master of the imperial fist, ya know!
B2: This old guy.
B3: He may be arrogant as hell, but he's certainly strong enough to back it up...
B5: ...this guy may have been able to scare me in the past
B6: ....but I'm completely calm now
B7: Compared to the strength of the three beasts
B8: This guy is nothing at all
B9: Let's go!!
B10: I'll give you a full helping of my destructive fists!!
B11: Against this guy
>I won't even need incursio!!
>sfx bottom left panel: Entire crowd roaring
B2: Captain, that boy is exceptionally skilled.
B4: That's the end!!
B5: Tatsumi is the winner!!
>txt in same panel: Crowd Roaring
B6: Everyone is cheering
B7: For me...
B8: I did it!
>txt at top: Ba-Dump (heart beat)
B1: ...I've found him.
B2: He's a candidate for using that teigu, right?
B3: That too, but....something else.
B5: Ohh!! She's coming to the ring herself!?
>Was your name, right?
B2: It's a good name.
B5: This is Esdese...
B6: The person who issued orders to the three beasts...?
B1: If she didn't exist...
B2: Aniki would still be...
B3: The match just now.
>That was superb.
B4: I wish to give you your reward.
B6: Thank you very much!
B7: Though it is kind of like charity from the enemy...
B8: Money is money!
>sfx near esdese: Rustle Rustle
B9: I'll just accept it and act thankful.
B1: From now on...
B1: You'll belong to me.
B1: There are too many distractions here.
B2: Come with me to the palace.
B3: Hold on-
B4: Wait a--!!
B6: I won't wait.
B8: Just happened?
B1: We'll talk in my room.
B2: When it's just the two of us...
B4: What the hell is happening~~~!!?
