    Original ending confirmed now, end of this episode is the end of the second to last chapter of the manga.

    Skipped two full arcs to reach (mostly) the same conclusion but without any of the darker stuff that happened in them. Maybe they had to for censorship reasons?

    Spoiler: show
    Having a woman and child raped over their husband/fathers grave, Leone getting herself dismembered/disemboweled and Lubbock getting his nuts crushed may be a bit much


    Whatever..

    Could be ok, but anime original endings don't generally have a good track record so I'm not holding my breath. And yeah, it's too bad they completely skipped over the entire Jaegers vs Wild Hunt arc - there are some pretty cool fights that would have been nice to see animated.

    Well, I had wanted to remain hopeful. I don't think I can anymore. What a letdown.

    Well it's a good intro to the manga which I'll probably pick up after this. What chapter should I start from or is it a start from the beginning type deal?

    Chapter 39 starts off right around where the anime deviates from the manga, so that's probably a good a place as any.

    It had been following the manga really closely until the last two episodes. That's why I'm still surprised that they did this; I had been so sure it'd be a two season series and it'd remain faithful. I was so wrong. In any event, Ezek is right. Chapter 38 is the fight between Mine and Seryu, so Ch39 is generally where'd you want to start if you want to jump into the middle of it, though there'd be no harm in starting at the beginning either since you'll always see some of the side things the anime could never include.

    I swear to god if they end this with a different pairing this show will become a pristine example of why you don't go original ending unless it's an original series.

    Probably rushing it at this point... and not expecting an actual ending like the manga will do (which will most likely be much better then what the anime rushes to do)

    Ok yea this episode was really disappointing. The fight scene was ripped right out of DBZ and even then Mine dies because...reasons. This show went from really really awesome to pretty bland and generic. It's a shame.

    This is usually what happens when a series is forced to go into anime original ending mode.

    Maybe they'll do a full remake in the future but I'm not hopeful since AgK isn't selling all too well from what I hear.

    No chance; if Soul Eater can't get one this one never will.

    Soul Eater was actually a top selling manga. AgK manga sales are mediocre at best, and the anime's sales are awful. I doubt a S2 was ever planned. If it was, it's surely not now.

    These character deaths seem so out of hand. Sheele dying created drama and hype, but at this point it feels like one of those Redbox horror films where each character dies off until it's only the male and female MCs left standing. Akame has also gotten 0 development in the last 5+ episodes. This show started off great, but has steadily gone downhill in the past 2 months.

    I started reading the manga at many recommendations and am at chapter 20, so I'm hoping it's one of those deals where the source material is much better than the anime adaptation.

    Manga is much better, just kinda hoped the anime would follow, but I guess not ;/

    I like anime Tatsumi's small personality differences over the manga. At least, I did until they started changing the plot.

    Spoiler: show
    Manga Tatsumi still wins for giving Mine the dick


    Really this was a fantastic show until 2 weeks ago.

    The manga is much better, especially the latest chapter... if only the anime went the same route of awesomeness...
