Power rewards Denji for saving Meowy, however, it fails to live up to his expectations and puts him into a funk. Makima tries to bring him out and promises to do whatever he wants if he kills the Gun Devil!
Chainsaw Man (Episode 5) – Gun Devil
Power sat waiting for Denji to claim his reward and in the end had to help him take the first step. After squeezing her boobs, a pair of pads fell out. Of course, they were padded. However, he still has two more squeezes and once it’s done Power bigs herself up and tells him how lucky he is. He doesn’t seem to agree. Makima helps Denji complete the paperwork after defeating the Bat Devil and can tell he’s not himself.
When she finds out what happened, she explains how she thinks sex works and ends up biting his thumb seductively. Then, she reveals that there is something she wants him to do. She will do anything he wants if he can kill the Gun Devil. Anything! Of course, Denji has never heard of the Gun Devil despite it killing 1.2 million people in five minutes. They’ve been collecting fragments of the Gun Devil that other devils have eaten. It makes them stronger, however, if they can collect enough pieces it should lead to the Gun Devil.
Aki’s team are sent to take care of a reported Devil in a hotel. It’s a pretty serious mission and as such six Public Service Agents have been sent in, Power and Denji included. Before entering the hotel, Hibeno makes things more interesting by offering a kiss on the cheek to whoever kills the devil. Denji’s not interested as he only has eyes for Makima. But, what if it was a kiss with tongues? Where is that devil?
What did you think?
And there was yet another hint that Makima is really dangerous. As Denji was reassessing his life after squeezing Power’s boobs, she mentioned that she would like to retire now that she has Meowy back, but Makima is too scary to escape from. That then moved nicely into seeing Makima at work. She basically seduced Denji into agreeing to do whatever she wanted, which is fine. Or at least it would be if Denji didn’t have the mind of a child. The more I see of her, the more I don’t trust her.
I do like how this series is handling flashbacks and backstories. So far, we’ve only gotten a few short moments and this episode was a great example of that. Not only did we see how Aki’s family were killed but also when he first met Hibeno. This show is still all about Power and Denji and their weird dynamic. I love how comfortable they are with one another and how they are reacting the same. It was a fine episode that focused more on setting things up that delivering any action. Obviously, action is a huge part of this series, so its absence was noticed.
