If you are looking for some Akame ga Kill! fanfiction, then this is the post for you.
Akame ga Kill! is a Japanese manga series about Tatsumi, a young man who travels to the big city to raise money for his family.
Only, he discovers the corrupt Empire and is recruited by an assassin group called the Night Raid.
So if you like action and dark fantasy manga, then Akame ga Kill! might be just the thing for you.
Along with the manga, there is also a whole world of Akame ga Kill! fanfiction out there.
But in this post, I will write about some of the most popular Akame ga Kill! fanfiction according to hits received on Archive Of Our Own.
Keep reading to find out more about some of these popular stories.
1. Darkar Chronicles: Empire’s End
In this story, we follow Tatsumi and his friends as they leave their village in search of fame and fortune.
But somehow, they get separated, and a few are taken in by a loving family.
There is a lot of coupling in this story, also between characters that are normally not seen as a couple.
The writer went completely off canon and also did a redemption for some characters.
This makes the story interesting but might be harder for some die-hard fans of the manga.
This story is part 1 of the “Darkar Chronicles” series, which contains two parts in total.
And with 66 very long chapters, there is enough to read for everyone.
2. A New Beginning
This story continues after the ending of the manga.
But the writer did change that ending a little bit, so some elements influence the rest of the story.
It is six months after the creation of the new Empire, and Akame finally sees Leone again.
They both had a lot to endure with the Night Raid, and this had an impact on their lives after.
But they are eager to start fresh and, because of that, travel to a new town together.
Here they meet many new and interesting people and experience all sorts of firsts.
It is a long story with 84 chapters where the characters you know and love go on all kinds of adventures.
3. Akame Ga Arc.
This story is a crossover between Akame ga Kill! and RWBY.
(If this sounds interesting, check out our RWBY Fanfiction post!)
Esdeath has to pick a male as her partner, even though she despises males.
When Esdeath does not pick one herself, a tournament is held where the winner will get her as their wife.
Jaune Arc somehow ends up in this tournament, and it looks like he might actually win.
Of course, Esdeath still does not want a partner, but maybe Jaune isn’t so bad after all.
It is a short story with 1 chapter and only 3410 words.
But this doesn’t make it any less interesting.
4. Tatsumi’s sissification
This story is very different from the other fanfics within this fandom.
The Empire has fallen, and Tatsumi is finally free to become what he wants: a beautiful girl.
Because this is a difficult journey, they are glad they won’t have to do it alone.
And with Akame by their side, they are sure they can become anything at all.
The story is 11 chapters long.
And although this might not be for everyone in this fandom, it is still a popular story.
5. Akame ga Kill! Strange Alliance
This fanfic follows up after the battle against Shikoutazer.
Tatsumi is dying, but Akame has problems accepting this.
Esdeath and Akame face each other, knowing they are willing to do anything to save the man they love.
And Akame has an idea to unite with her enemy to save Tatsumi.
But this might not be so easy because they can’t seem to be able to put aside their grudges.
This story is about love and sacrifices and how to overcome hate.
6. Leone’s Expansive Arms
This is a very short story with only 1 chapter and 1621 words.
It follows Leone and also shows Akame and Chelsea in smaller parts.
Leone finds new Imperial Arms that can enhance certain body parts.
She and the other girls from the Night Raid are enjoying the effects of the Imperial Arms together.
The story is completely off canon and just a funny one-shot.
Don’t take it too seriously while reading, just enjoy.
7. The Dragon of Night Raid
This story is a crossover between Akame ga Kill! and Fairy Tail.
Wendy is sucked through a gateway and ends up in the Capital.
There she meets a group of kids that call themselves the Night Raid.
They try to convince her that the Empire is wrong and that it is worth fighting for the right thing.
But who decides what is right or wrong is something Wendy has to find out for herself.
And now she has to find a way back to her own home before this strange world sucks her in completely,
This original story combines these two fandoms in a great way.
8. Second Time Around
In this fanfic, Tatsumi wakes up after dying.
Somehow he has gotten a second chance at life, and it starts the day he left the Capital.
Now all he has to do is make the right choices to save the lives of his friends and his own.
This story is very well written and is original as well.
Even though it is only 1 chapter long, the concept is interesting.
So be sure to check this one out.
9. A Date With Destiny
This story follows canon for quite a bit, but the writer did change a few things to make the story work.
After battling and winning, the Shikoutazar Tatsumi is left to die.
And while his body is being destroyed, Esdeath does everything she can to save him.
But because of everything that has already happened, something evil is growing inside of Tatsumi.
And now Tatsumi and Esdeath have to try together to save him before it is too late.
This story is filled with action, hard choices, and maybe even a bit of romance.
It is four chapters long and relatively easy to read.
10. Kill The Beast Within
This story contains a few trigger warnings, so read them before starting the story.
The fanfic is told from the point of view of Minosha, an original character.
Minosha wants to take revenge on Esdeath for killing his family.
Then he can join Night Raid.
And because they all have the same end goal, the chance of actually killing her is bigger.
But it still isn’t as easy as he thinks, and they face some big difficulties.
This is a dark and graphic story with some heavy themes.
And because it has an original character but still some canon-related parts, the story feels like a part of the original manga.
