Chainsaw Man Episode 12 ends probably the most hyped anime shows of the year. Yes, the season finale is coming, and if past episodes are any indication, it is going to be absolutely unmissable — and pretty bloody.

Aki and his friends are ready for more fights with the devils. The devil hunter signed a pact with the future devil when the fox demon broke the contract with Aki.

However, he had to let the devil reside in his right eye because it was the only way the future demon would allow him to use his powers. Power and Denji, on the other hand, seek training from Kishibe, whom Makima chose as their trainer.

It’s the last episode of the season, but the show is still introducing us to new people. In the last episode, we saw a few members of Squad 4 appear to destroy the yakuza zombies, and we may see more this week.

With a few new tricks up their sleeves, Aki, Denji, and Power will face off against the people who almost killed them the last time they fought. This means that he will be capable to see further back in time than his opponents.

What to expect from Chainsaw Man episode 12

Chainsaw Man Episode 12

Chainsaw Man episode 12 will likely open with a focus on Aki, who is currently in the hands of Himeno’s former contractor, the Ghost Devil. While it’s unlikely that Aki will die in the next episode, the show has made it clear that nobody is safe. So with that in mind, there’s a small chance that fans might see Aki’s death.

Instead, in Chainsaw Man episode 12, someone will possibly come to Aki’s rescue while Denji and Power search other sections of the hotel for the Katana Man. With a little more time on that’s more critical than these current events, most of the episode is likely to focus on these three people.

Finally, with a below-average number of chapters left to adapt in the next final episode, viewers can expect some original anime sequences to play out at some point. Likewise, viewers can finally see the long-awaited trailer scene with Aki and Himeno in bed together, showing that the two had a love connection.

Brief recap of Chainsaw Man Episode 11

Aki makes a straightforward deal with the Devil of the Future, one that requires him to give up nothing while offering much for the future.

Kishibe’s training with Denji and Power takes place primarily offscreen as Kishibe proceeds to confront Makima about her complicity in the Devil Hunter teams attack.

Makima then meets with the Yakuza commanders to find out who attacked the squads and plot their revenge against the attackers.
