This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Akame ga Kiru!
The Emperor is really an Apparently Powerless Puppetmaster
He is fully aware of how evil the Prime Minister and his cronies are. The reason he goes along with all of it is because he's really more evil than all of them put together and relishes the pain and misery around him. The "innocent child" act ensures that the Prime Minister becomes the primary target of rebels like Night Raid.
Over the next few chapters, it won't be Lubbock who receives the Trauma Conga Line , instead it will be Tatsumi
It's become fairly clear that this series likes to play with expectations on who will die and how, and knowing what we know about Esdeath, she'll probably do a few things to make Tatsumi hers:
  • 1 Rape him. This series hasn't been shy about putting some characters through this, and considering that Esdeath is a sadist that laid claim to Tatsumi...
  • 2 She will cement her status as a Hero Killer by taking out Mine and make Tatsumi watch. Another thing that would be in character for her.
  • 3 she will raze Tatsumi's home town as an example.

In the meantime, Lubbock will escape, tell the rest of Night Raid what went down, and that's what will lead to Mines death.
  • Jossed: Lubbock was killed during his escape attempts

In the End, Akame will manage to kill Esdeath
...But Esdeath will use her teigu's power to slow down the poison long enough to add one more member of Night Raid to the Death Count. Most likely Mine.
