Kill the Carnage (修羅を斬る, Shura o Kiru) is chapter 52 of the Akame ga Kill! manga.
Captured and brutally tortured, Lubbock starts to shake in fear and shows sign of giving up. In the palace, Syura brags about his accomplishments to Honest. He then tells Honest that he remembered seeing Tatsumi and Esdeath together before attempting to frame Esdeath into a traitor in order to assimilate Jaegers into Wild Hunt for his personal vendetta with Wave and his intention to break Kurome. Honest, however, dismisses that issue and instead reveals an investigation report done by Run which points out that the person that caused the humanoid Danger Beasts outbreak was Syura. Honest then disbands Wild Hunt as per Esdeath's request and as a sign of token for not handing it to Budo. Honest then proceeds to tell Syura that he doesn't mind him starting a stir, but dislikes how he was easily exposed and hates useless people like that much to Syura's chagrin. Syura attempts to refute back with his recent success on capturing Tatsumi and Lubbock, which Honest counters back saying that's the reason he was keeping Syura from punished as a criminal.
Angered by his predicament, Syura leaves the room, leaving Dorothea and Honest alone as Dorothea claims that Honest is a harsh father, which Honest refutes as tough love and praises his son for bringing back an alchemist like Dorothea, both revealing that they have been working together for a certain project. Inside the hallway, a desperate Syura formulates strategies to draw out the remaining Night Raid members from torturing Lubbock for info to an extreme step of burning the capital to draw them out.
Back in the prison, Syura threatens Lubbock into submission as Lubbock agrees, begging Syura to stop torturing him. Lubbock proceeds to talk about Incursio and it's trump card, which Syura shows no interest, instead taking interest in Murasame which Lubbock claims to have a trump card yet does not. Displeased at the answer, Syura shouts at Lubbock telling him not to joke around, to which Lubbock reply that Akame can't use the Trump Card yet as such he hasn't seen it before. Due to the lack of information, Syura decides to change the question, asking Lubbock where Night Raid's hideout is. Lubbock then ask for a map so that he can point out the location, as he suddenly places his hand inside his mouth and tells Syura there's another Teigu user who can use the trump card. Purposely saying in a tone that Syura can't hear, Lubbock reveals that he has strings kept in his mouth as well, using that string to strangle and break Syura's neck, saying that Night Raid would never betray each other, killing Syura. Lubbock then easily dispose off the remaining prison guard.
Lubbock having defeated his enemies then uses Shambhala to escape. Lubbock's plan, however, didn't go well as he teleported to the garden in the Palace. Out of option, Lubbock decides to leave on foot when he pursuers chases him. Lubbock's intent to escape is unfortunately thwarted by Izou who appears in front of him. Aware that faking death won't work on his opponent, Lubbock charges at him and tries to make use of Shambhala as a shield. Izou, however, not giving a care about the Teigu, cuts Lubbock in half along with Shambhala, stating that he exist solely for Kousetsu. Lubbock in his final breath thinks about Najenda, wondering if he did well as he dies. Izou impressed by Lubbock's determination to survive, praises his opponent but notes that even if Lubbock somehow kills him, all that awaits Lubbock is certain death, noticing Budo who was preparing to kill Lubbock if he passes Izou. Budo then leaves the scene to apologize to the Emperor for staining the palace with blood. Inside his room, Honest receives a report from Dorothea as he falls into a temporary despair, quickly calming down and states he can just make another son, no longer caring for his deceased son, much to the surprise of Dorothea over how Honest can quickly get over his own grief.
Inside the prison cell Tatsumi is kept in, Esdeath comes in to visit Tatsumi again, noticing that he hasn't eaten anything she cooked. Esdeath then tries to talk Tatsumi into becoming her subordinate, saying that all of Tatsumi's past crime will be pardoned or else he'll have to face execution should he refuse. Tatsumi, however, strengthen his point to Esdeath that he won't accept any negotiations unless if Esdeath helps Lubbock as well. Esdeath then breaks in the news of Lubbock's death to Tatsumi. Esdeath further informs Tatsumi that tonight will be his last chance with Tatsumi telling her that he's willing to die over joining the Empire. As Esdeath further begs Tatsumi, Tatsumi once again strongly states his rejection with dawn hitting. With the time limit over and Tatsumi still refusing to join her, Esdeath declares that she will personally execute Tatsumi.
