Chainsaw Man Episode 11 Recap
At the beginning of this episode, Aki and the Future Devil enter into a binding agreement. Usually, in exchange for using someone else’s powers, Future Devil demands a hefty price, but in Aki’s case, he only wants to live in his right eye. Aki’s future is then revealed to the Future Devil, but he finds that Aki is uninterested in hearing about it.
Because of their training, Denji and Power can injure Kishibe, who then reveals that the Yakuza will be eradicated with the help of Special Division 4 and other Public Safety Divisions. Kurose and Aki discuss Aki’s goal of killing the Gun Devil, and Aki explains that he cannot do so because of the disparity in their respective power levels.
In the meantime, Makima travels to Tokyo to meet with the Yakuza boss there and begs him to reveal the identities of the other Yakuza members loyal to the Gun Devil. After the Yakuza boss turns down her request, she scares him and his men with a bag containing their loved one’s eyes.
Kishibe tells Aki, “The plan is for the Special Division to enter the building, which is occupied by non-humans, right away.” Denji, Aki, Power, and Kobeni arrive at the building simultaneously. The entire team is wiping out the Zombie Devil’s zombies, including the Shark Fiend, the Spider Devil, the Violence Fiend, and the Angel Devil.
On the other hand, Aki and the others have gone to protect Sawatari and Katana Man. Once Aki locates Sawatari, they engage in a fierce battle. Using the power of the Future Devil, Aki avoids Sawatari’s Ghost Devil attacks.
However, the Ghost Devil eventually seizes him in its hands and comes dangerously close to killing him by choking him.

Makima Meets Kishibe
Contrarily, Kishibe invites Makima to dinner. They talk about how far along Denji and Power are. Kishibe reveals to Makima that she was aware of the impending attack but did nothing to stop it.
He says that as long as she is fighting for humanity, he has no intention of interfering with her. Meanwhile, Akane and Katana Man are trying to avoid Makima’s notice by taking cover inside a building.
Additionally, they plan to eliminate any remaining devil hunters from the Public Safety Department. Akane cautions her team to stay away from the building’s perimeter because of the zombies. Insinuating that Aki can take out the Gun Devil is a joke, Yutaro mocks his friend’s confidence in himself. According to Aki, it is this conviction that drives him forward.
After meeting with the Yakuza boss, Makima is reassured that he has nothing to do with the attack on her group. In an instant, the mob boss hands over Akane and reveals to her that it was Akane who brokered the deal with the Gun Devil.
In addition, Makima made sure to check in on everyone who was there. Makima tells them that if they tell her all the names, she’ll give them their eyes back. The eyes belong to family members of everyone in the room.

At The End
The police have sealed off the building where Akane and Katana Man are holed up. Khisibe advises the police to take care when dealing with Division 4 members because most of them are not human.
Shark Fiend, Violence Fiend, Spider Feind, and Angel Devil make up the new division 4. Aki boasts that the fiends are up to fighting off the zombies and that his group is ready to take on Akane and Katana Man.
However, Kishibe extends an invitation to Makima for dinner. They discuss Denji and Power’s progress thus far. Kishibe tells Makima that she knew an attack was coming the whole time but did nothing to stop it.
He adds that he won’t get in her way so long as she’s fighting for humanity. Akane and Katana Man are also inside a building, hoping to avoid being spotted by Makima.
Moreover, a strategy has been developed to eliminate devil hunters still working for the Public Safety Department. Akane warns her team not to venture too close to the building’s edges, where the zombies are most likely to appear.
Yutaro makes fun of Aki by implying his friend’s belief in his ability to kill the Gun Devil is ridiculous. In Aki’s words, it is this belief that propels him forward.
Makima is reassured after meeting with the Yakuza boss that he had nothing to do with the attack on her group. Akane is handed over to the mob boss instantly, and the mobster reveals to her that she was the one who negotiated the deal with the Gun Devil.
In addition, Makima follows up with everybody who was there to see how they’re doing. If they tell her all the names, Makima promises to restore their sight. All those looking at you are members of your extended family.
