Characters openly using gaming terms, like "leveling up" and "gaining experience points".

Akame's battle with Zank foreshadowed her losing her humanity to Murasame and killing Kurome At first glance Zank seemed like another quirky minor villain meant to demonstrate the corruption of The Empire like Aria and Ogre. However, one interpretation of his character could be that he is a representation of what Akame is afraid of becoming. Both characters come from not so different backgrounds as they both were mentally stricken by the work The Empire put them into.
Akame developed her stoic demeanor as a result of her allies in the Elite Seven an assassination squad created by The Empire dying while Zank was driven mad by the insane amount of executions Prime Minister Honest ordered which led to him going on murderous rampages. In a way Zank metaphorically "lost his humanity" after going insane and during Akame's battle with him called her out on being Not So Different.
He tried to argue that him killing random civilians was no different from her murder of countless targets as both a member of the Elite Seven and Night Raid. There's also the fact that during their battle Zank took on the form of Kurome as his Teigu allowed him to take on the form of the person his opponent values the most. Chapter 64 of the manga reveals that Akame can activate her trump card if she discards her humanity and the manga has now started Akame and Kurome's duel with each other.
It is very likely that Akame will give up on her humanity and become possessed by Murasame after killing Kurome. Akame's battle with Zank foreshadowed this by having her opponent take on the form of Kurome as well as having her opponent be a reflection of what she fears becoming if she allowed her endless bloodshed to take over and give up on her remaining humanity.
Lastly, similar to how Zank thanked Akame for killing him at the end of their battle, Akame wants Tatsumi to kill her if she becomes consumed by Murasame bringing up the possibility that Akame remembers how senselessly violent Zank was and wants to prevent herself from becoming like him. Kurome was able to survive her battle with Akame, thanks to Wave, and Akame doesn't use her trump card during that fight. However, the "losing her humanity" part might still come true, but during a different battle.
Suzuka will be a Spanner in the Works for The Empire. Suzuka is the last surviving member of several teams serving The Empire, now landing as Prime Minister Honest's personal bodyguard, and subordinate to Esdeath.
Her extreme level of masochism being a factor, and making her obsessed with Esdeath, the ultimate sadist. The First Emperor attempted to find a means to immortality in the creation of Teigu. Even though it was already explicitly stated that the First Emperor created Teigu because he knew he couldn't live forever, that doesn't mean he didn't try to find immortality in Teigu.
Chances are in his attempts to create Teigu that tried to achieve immortality he realized it would be impossible and gave up. These Teigu support this theory The most blatant example. This Teigu can resurrect any deceased corpses that it stabs essentially bringing them back to life though with the drawback that whomever is stabbed has no free will, and will maintain any damage they receive in battle. As we saw with Dorothea she was able to use this Teigu to maintain her youth by sucking the blood out of other people.
Dorothea believed that she could use this Teigu to make herself immortal so in theory if used enough it could prolong your life indefinitely. However the drawback with this one is that it requires the existence of other people in order to be used to its fullest effect, and eventually it would result in the death of everyone else in the world thus meaning its impossible for this Teigu to achieve immortality.
This is the closest the First Emperor came to achieving immortality through Teigu. Had it not been for his core Susanoo would have been immortal himself. As we saw Susanoo managed to live for years without dying of any natural causes and as long as no one tries to destroy his core he could have lived forever as far as we're concerned. Similarly Coro, another organic Teigu followed the same principles.
Considering how Teigu are weapons first their cores were most likely made as a way to balance them out, but the fact that they are biologically immortal and cannot be killed otherwise shows that the First Emperor came close to finding some means to create immortality but maybe something about their creation couldn't have been replicated with humans. However based on the little details that we know about the manga's publication Takahiro may have planned the series to be a seinen until it was ultimately decided to be a shounen.
In fact looking at this history brings in some speculation to what the visual novel would have been like and a few original concepts for the story. It all comes together when you consider the following Takahiro is the owner of visual novel development studio Minato Soft.
Most of the visual novels that studio has made have been erotic visual novels aimed at adults. Takhiro's idea for the manga as revealed in the same postscript was a story about a male protagonist who joins an all female group of assassins which was likely the premise for the erotic visual novel as well.
As seen below this original concept was very much evident in the actual manga. A few aspects of a Akame ga Kill! This includes the attractive character designs for the female characters, Esdeath and a majority of the female cast having crushes on Tatsumi, the fact that a majority of Night Raid is females, and Mine ultimately being the one who ends up in a relationship with Tatsumi.
The major character deaths were most likely a carryover of a mechanic from the visual novel in which depending on the player's decisions some characters would live while others would die in certain routes. There would have also most likely been a normal visual novel mechanic of allowing the player character to have romantic relationships with the other characters. All of these are factors that would be more appealing to an adult visual novel rather than a battle shounen manga which may indicate that when Takahiro was offered the opportunity to make Akame ga Kill!
Bulat's inclusion in the manga's story is most likely a hint that Takahiro had intended that one of the "female assassins" would have been a gay option for a romance route. This is provided that he wasn't conceived after Akame ga Kill! It could also be likely that Lubbock or at least his design was based off the original protagonist or an idea for the protagonist Takahiro had at one point as he's the odd one out in Night Raid being the only other male and unlike Bulat did not have a crush on Tatsumi.
Takahiro was approached by Square Enix to write a manga for them in This is most likely the event that shifted Akame ga Kill! With Square Enix now needing a flagship title for Gangan Joker they most likely figured that a battle oriented shounen would be a good option for the magazine due to the genre's popularity.
Takahiro probably already committed to making Akame ga Kill! The anime original ending could have likely been an idea that Takahiro had for one of the visual novel's bad endings. There have been stories floating around that Tatsumi was never meant to be the protagonist of Akame ga Kill!
Takahiro apparently wanted Akame to be the main character in which if this story is true shows that upon the shift from visual novel to manga Takahiro figured the idea of a male protagonist wouldn't work in a manga.
It could also be further evidence that he wanted to make the manga a seinen since as we see in the actual manga Akame's character arc is much darker than Tatsumi's. There's also the fact that Akame ga Kill! Zero where she is the protagonist is a seinen and not a shounen. Prime Minister Honest is a literal monster. Honest's corruption and direction of The Empire seems Stupid Evil at first glance. Putting the most Sociopathic Soldier and crooked officials in positions in power. Inciting and quelling rebellion violently while assassinating anyone who dares question him.
Even if The Empire manages to defeat The Rebellion, it is unlikely they'd be able to retain that power much longer, especially losing their strongest and smartest in the process. Because this is exactly what Honest wants.
He wants to create a massive conflict between human factions so he can push humanity to extinction and Kill All Humansbecause he is in fact a humanoid Danger Beast. Realizing that attacking humanity would be a moot point, he instead disguised himself as a human to influence the strongest human civilization into becoming a Crapsack World and destroying itself. Sure he mean well, but it seems that anyone who starts becoming close to him usually get some form of misfortune shortly afterwards.
Why else would seasoned assassins, that have been going their jobs for years, are killed off shortly after spending a couple weeks, or even days, after meeting Tatsumi.
It's possible that Tatsumi's village elder knew about this and had him sent away to a corrupted capital in an attempt to restore fortune to the village, and bring misfortune to the capital. In anime, it's only after Tatsumi's death did things slowly started to get better, the Empire is defeated and Tatsumi's village is given money for his deeds. Futhermore, the reason why both Leone and Esdeath were killed after his death was because they were the only two characters left that were attracted to Tatsumi, so his Cartwright Curse wouldn't allow them to live.

Tatsumi's "good luck charm" is actually a teigu that controls "luck". Continuing off the "Tatsumi is cursed" theory, its possible that Tatsumi, himself, isn't curse but the idol given to him by the village elder at the beginning of his journey is actually a teigu that controls luck. The idol has the ability to give its users good luck by absorbing the "fortune" from the people around him, dooming them with bad luck.
Tatsumi must be unknowingly using it all this time. As we seen with Tatsumi's counterpart, Wave, its not impossible to control two teigu at once.

One of the side effect of the teigu is turning the user into a Chick Magnet. In Tatsumi's flashback, it was heavily implied that Tatsumi's friend Sayo had feelings her Ieyasu, not Tatsumi, as she angrily only punched Ieyasu after both he and Tatsumi were talking about picking up woman at the capital.
The fact that Tatsumi so Oblivious to Loveeven when characters are clearly flirting with him, implies this only occurred after Tatsumi received the idol. When Tatsumi started his adventure, he absorbed his two friends' good luck, giving him a safe journey to the capital, while his friends had the misfortune of being captured by Aria and her family. Tatsumi began to suffer bad luck while at the capital, because he hadn't spend time with anyone long enough to absorb there fortune.
It's only after spending time with Aria's family, was his teigu able to absorb their good luck, inadvertently making them Night Raid's next targets. When Tatsumi was with Night Raid, he unknowingly absorb the fortune of any Night Raid member that started to get close to him. As result, Tatsumi would luck out of any situation that befalls him, while the Night Raid member is doomed with bad luck and is usually killed for it.
Tatsumi also absorbed the good luck of Jaegers after so much time with them when Esdeath first captured him, which would explain some their own misfortune.
There will be a Gainax Ending where everyone realizes they're in a manga And Wave and Kurome will cause it. Akame Ga Kill will end on a Downer Ending that will have light at the end of a tunnel in the shape of a sequel hook The basic concept of my idea is that whelst Honest does die he will have caused enough chaos and weakening of the empire that when some unknown foe involving danger beast begin attacking.
Humanity and the empire which is the only human force capable of fighting the threat on even ground, is absolutely weakened and lacking the teigu or scientific minds to combat it. Except, it is worse here since they didn't even achieve their end goal of creating a peaceful country and the survivors die knowing that from their perspective, they have only made it worse for the empire and humanity as a whole. Now for some hope in the sequel hook.
The emperor survives and hardened by his betrayal and brainwashing by Honest, but retains his desire to rule the empire well set's out with a not quite dead BudoWave, Kurame and what ever Night raid survivor if there is one, to make order in the empire. Stop Esdeath and Tyrant and finally Defeat Danger beast threat. Bonus point if the emperor stumbles upon the 24 missing original Teigu to start rebuilding the new imperial army.
