I understand why Weed exiled Jerome for killing the spies (can't have your closest aides undermining your orders after all), BUT he was also a selfish impractical brat for doing so. Those spies would have brought Hougen or Sniper down upon the Ohu army, and everyone would have died. I think Jerome made the right call.

AND reading the translated manga chapters Weed wonders whether he's in the wrong, and I'm like, "YES, YES, BABY YOU ARE SO CLOSE TO LEARNING AND GROWING FROM THIS EXPERIENCE"...and then he just doubles down. Don't put your morals over everyone else's survival, kid. Working for Weed must be a bit of a nightmare, just because he's so impractical about killing (and nothing else) and he expects you to fight with one paw behind your back when your opponents are out for blood.

HOWEVER, I also understand why Weed would think sparing the spies could work, just because he got some of his best allies like Rocket and Tesshin that way (and Rikiya's followers, and the Koga dogs, etc.). In fairness, it has worked out for him in the past.

I just read the scene where GB announces to Weed that his dad is dead, and my heart broke. "HE ISN'T IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE!" And then Weed just started screaming. Seeing Weed smash his head into that tree was extremely upsetting. </3

Weed just killed two guards on the way to kill Murder S. If you're gonna kill underlings, just do it and don't be a hypocrite about it, Weed!

I know I just said this over on the Discord, but...

To me, Weed was worse in the anime in that situation. Because not only Lector and Thunder wanted to kill him twice, but right after Weed ordered his comrades to let those villains go for the second time, the villains planned to try to kill him for a THIRD time.

What Weed didn't understand is that chances have limits and that there are some villains that are not worth redeeming or refuse to change when given that opportunity. So on that side of the situation, Jerome did the right thing to kill those assassins, even if he felt down and that Weed was making a point with his weak-ass moral on life.

I'm at the scene where Weed is rushing to confront Sniper and he says he isn't afraid of death but doesn't want anyone sacrificing themselves for him. He also entrusts the pack to Jerome. Well said, kid, though I can't approve of running off impulsively to confront your father's killers in the middle of the night.

Exactly! Weed, honey bunny, some people never change even if you give them chance after chance. Those boys had more than enough time to change their mind, and what Lector and Thunder did was especially unforgivable as they tortured and attempted to kill a puppy. Why would you want them as your ally or let them live? Even if they're strong, they have willingly chosen to be monsters. If you let them live, they'll just hurt someone else.

And even if Weed wants to let someone live, it's not fair to ask his subordinates to do the same thing, especially when their enemies are targeting them too.

Weed and co. JUST ran past where Gin was being healed in a vet clinic on their way back to Ohu. They had no way of knowing he was there, but my brain is already cooking up an AU where Weed got to travel back to Ohu with his dad.

Shigure got told to stay home by Akame while Izou and Shuusaku went out and he started crying. :(

Izou did say he'd bring back Genba's head though. How nice of him!

Gin's nickname at the vet clinic was "Aki". What a cute nickname! The vet staff were genuinely upset when Gin escaped, though.

Tesshin caused an avalanche to defeat Genba. My baby boy, off to destroy people. *sniffle*
