What Happened in the Last Time: Episode 7
In the previous episode, Denji realizes that the Devil is afraid of his chainsaws, so he jumps into its mouth to shred it from the inside. Denji mercilessly starts shredding the devil from the inside. The devil starts to rip denji into shreds but Denji regenerates by feeding off Devil’s blood. Himeno remembers her Mentor telling her that sane hunter die often. Looking at Denji’s insanity she is relieved that Denji can kill the Gun Devil without risking Aki’s life. After three days the Devil finally dies. After that, the group goes to a restaurant to get to know each other. Himeno then gets drunk and repays Denji with a kiss, but she vomits in his mouth and Denji passes out.
What To Expect From Episode 8
The episode is likely to start with the scene in which Denji and Himeno are in bed with each other. We will get to see how Denji reacts to Himeno’s offer to sleep with him. It can be the start of a new arc of the series, probably The Katana Man arc that will start with a bang. The episode might also show the scene between Himeno and Aki that was teased in the initial trailers. Furthermore, the relations between the team members are sure to get better and they can start trusting each other. Denji will be assured that he won’t be sacrificed again by other members. Although everything is pure speculation right now one thing is for sure it is going to be a treat to watch.
