Kill the Nuisances (邪魔者を斬る, Jamamono o Kiru) is the thirteenth episode of the Akame ga Kill! anime.
The prime minister assigns Esdeath to track down the Danger Beasts from the previous episode and kill them. The Jaegers attack some of the Danger Beasts when they attack a wagon of supplies. Wave recalls the incident the next day and notes that the present merchants were terrified of Bols despite his kind personality because of his otherwise fearsome appearance. However, Bols tells him that despite his personality, he had killed many people in the past, earning himself a lot of hate from the people. Bols’ wife and young daughter visit the Jaeger group in support of Bols’ work, much to the surprise of Wave. Meanwhile, Tatsumi trains with Susanoo and tells him that he should be considered one of Night Raid members and not as a tool. Night Raid travels to their new hideout and are given their newest mission, which is to kill the modified Danger Beasts.
This is essentially helping the Capital they have been fighting. When Chelsea states her belief that the Jaegers should take care of the problem, Tatsumi counters that by aiding the Capital, they would be able to save more lives. Chelsea later confides to Najenda that she believes Tatsumi's kindness will eventually lead him to his death. Esdeath and Run express to each other their beliefs that, since the new Danger Beasts were revealed to have once been human, they were possibly the result of one of Dr. Stylish's experiments. The pair assume the new Danger Beasts either somehow managed to escape their containment or were freed by someone. Seryu and Coro take out a group of the Danger Beasts as their master watches, deciding he'll continue playing with his "toys." While patrolling the mountains the following night, Tatsumi learns about Lubbock's reasons for joining Night Raid and that they involve Najenda. Tatsumi travels to the summit of a mountain alone to look for more Danger Beasts when he is suddenly confronted by a wandering Esdeath, who is shocked to see him.
