Tatsumi came from a small village alongside with his two childhood friends to the capital in order to find work and earn money to send to the impoverished village. On the way to the capital however, Tatsumi got separated from his two friends. Upon reaching the capital, he tried to join the army but fails and loses all his money to Leone. Down on his luck, a kind noblewoman named Aria approached him and offered him help, which Tatsumi accepts. Unfortunately, it turns out that Aria is being targeted by a group of assassins called the Night Raid. While defending Aria from the assassins, Leone revealed herself and tells to Tatsumi the reason why they’re targeting Aria.
It turns out Aria is torturing and killing clueless people that come into the capital for work. Among her victims are Tatsumi’s two childhood friends. Upon hearing the truth, Tatsumi lost himself in anger and killed Aria with his own hands. By killing a noble, Tatsumi is now considered an enemy of the empire. With nowhere else to go, Leone recruits Tatsumi with her into the night raid, asking him to help overthrow the corrupt empire. Tatsumi reluctantly accepts at first and becomes a full pledged member of the Night Raid. Tatsumi was then invited into the hideout and introduced to the rest of the Night Raid members: Akame, Mine, Leone, Sheele, Lubbock, Bulat and the leader of the Night Raid, Najenda. Members of the Night Raid each wields a Teigu, a powerful item with magical capabilities created via alchemy using methods that are long lost. Only 48 such items or known to exists.
Tatsumi was paired with Akame, learning much from her and enriching their bonds in the process. Tatsumi was given his first mission afterwards, to assassinate a corrupt imperial official by the name of Ogre the Demon. Tatsumi successfully completed the mission after a bit of hardship. His next mission has him paired with Mine, the twintailed sniper of the group. Their target was to kill a relative of the prime minister. Mine successfully snipes him from afar, killing him in one shot. The surviving guards managed to mount a counter attack however and one of them got close to Mine. Tatsumi uses his body to stop the guard from going closer and tells Mine to shoot. Mine hesitates but shoots after hearing Tatsumi’s trust in her, successfully hitting the guard and missing Tatsumi in the process.
Tatsumi and the gang proceeds to go on a few more missions, each one successful. During one of the missions to assassinate a drug syndicate, Night Raid lost a member. Someone ambushed them, this person is Seryu and she wants vengeance for the death of Captain Ogre, which is a mentor to her. Night Raid has the advantage initially but in the end, Seryu managed to corner both Mine and Schele. Schele decided to sacrifice herself to let Mine escape. She was then devoured by Seryu’s dog, Koro.
The next mission, Tatsumi was paired with bulat, this time not on an assassination mission but a guard mission. The prime minister has been assasinating his political enemies and blaming Night Raid on the deed. Tatsumi and Bulat is tasked of guarding one of the targets inside the luxury liner. The liner is then attacked and Bulat lost his life in the process, but not before successfully killing the attackers and entrusting Tatsumi with his Teigu. Tatsumi, now with a Teigu continues his Night Raid duties, trying to get rid of the corruption in the Empire.
