Kill the Curse (呪縛を斬る, Jubaku o Kiru) is the seventeenth episode of the Akame ga Kill! anime.


Shown from the previous episode, Bols threw up his gas tank in the air and Leone saying aloud what she might think he'd do. In his hand, Bols pressed a portable device that blew the tank up and made a big explosion. Tatsumi, Mine, Najenda and Susanoo were also caught up in the explosion with Tatsumi defending them and wondering what was happening. He looked around to find that Kurome wasn't there. Though Kurome did escape with her childhood friend, she knew that Bols had made the explosion and predicted that he didn't survive it. She even wondered if her sister was okay. In the middle of the aftermath, Leone had shielded Akame with a shield and passed out. 

Bols is seen injured as he was able to get away from the explosion. He's then taken back to a flashback of him talking to Esdeath. She asked why he'd always cooked for them but never sat and ate with them. He'd answered with his face being unpleasant for them to eat. Esdeath took on the challenge and took off his mask, replying with a smile that he didn't look so bad and saying she was a little disappointed. Bols then partook into having meals with everyone and felt happy about it as they all

Bols then spotted a little girl injured and comes to her the girl is afraid of him because she thinks he is a ghost ( cause of the mask). Bols tells her not to be afraid and bandage her when he see she is injured. The little girl thanks him but, says that the places he burn will never be good while she stab him in the back of the neck and it turns out the little girl was Chelsea disguise as one of the victims Bol's killed due to them being a part of Night raid or not. As Bol's realized that one day he would have face retribution and is trying to fight off the poison to get back home but, in the he dies. As Chelsea lean back in the wall and says a battle between those who work in the shadow is really painful. As Lubbock comes and is glad Chelsea managed to take him out. Chelsea states that she is going after Kurome and Lubbock tries to warn that it is dangerous and she go rouge that wasn't her style. But Chelsea states that they can't allow her get more puppets and Lubbock agrees to tell her but he will get reinforcement for her and leaves. As Chelsea thanks him she says that she gotten soft but tries to focus on the mission and disguise herself as Bols and goes after Kurome.

In a nearby cabin with Night Raid resting, Leone prepare to have her arm reattached. Lubbock enters, reporting Chelsea's intentions, prompting Najenda to send Tatsumi and Akame as reinforcements. Chelsea later meets up with Kurome, the latter not knowing Bol's fate. They proceed to travel back to the capital, but Kurome collapses from exhaustion from using her Teigu. Chelsea catches Kurome off guard, poisoning her. Chelsea then reveals herself, shocking Kurome, who then appears to fall unconscious.

Chelsea states her mission has been accomplished, as both targets were taken out. She then begins to remember when she first used her Teigu. She used to work for a corrupt viceroy who hunted and killed people for sport. Disgusted by his actions, Chelsea discovered her soon to be Teigu in a basement, and used it to assassinate the viceroy. Due to the positive reception to his death, Chelsea realized she could help change the kingdom of its corrupt nature.

Kurome suddenly wakes up, shocking Chelsea. Kurome agonizingly struggles to stand up, stating she cannot be killed directly unless stabbed through the heart or decapitated. Chelsea makes a smoke screen and begins to escape. Kurome sends Natala and Doya after her. Overhearing Chelsea's statement about her mission being accomplished, Kurome vows to avenge Bols. Chelsea begins to transform and escape, but her Teigu is destroyed by Natala. She manages to escape him, only for him to catch up and slice off her arm. Doya then shoots her in the back, fatally wounding her. In her final moments, Chelsea realizes she is facing retribution and wonders what would happen if her mission was successful. Natala then slices off her head, killing her.

In a nearby town, Tatsumi and Akame try to track down Chelsea. As they were following a trail of blood, they theorize it could be either Chelsea's or Kurome's. Using Incursio's invisibility to infiltrate the city, Tatsumi assures himself that Chelsea wouldn't be so reckless, and the blood couldn't have been hers. However, he notices a commotion within a town square, and to his horror, sees Chelsea's decapitated head on a spike held high above the ground.
