Makima stars in MAPPA’s latest PV trailer, which focuses on some of her highlights, which is unsurprising but disappointing. What is Makima’s goal?
We’ve seen her in most of the episodes, but what can we know about her? She seems to prioritize society and justice, but who is justice?
And how does Denji fit into their plans?
Can you trust Makima?
Although she usually speaks calmly and softly, Makima has been playing with Denji ever since she met him. She hugs an exhausted chainsaw man when he asks her to, threatening to kill him if he doesn’t become her pet.
And no one has suggested giving Denji any form of schooling outside of training. There are obvious answers as to why this happened, and Denji did not ask to be sent to school.
We’ve never seen Makima yell or insult anyone, but that might be due more to her personality than her feelings towards a person. We don’t know how she got all those eyes without the yakuza members knowing about it.
And we haven’t seen anyone who could give them back to their owners. But Makima had no reason to lie and keeping secrets comes naturally to her.
What happens next?
The finale is the last opportunity to conveniently announce a Chainsaw season 2, a Chainsaw Man movie, or at least a sequel update. There’s more than enough source material to customize and room for filler or a movie.
But how far can Makima go? She has killed people without touching them and has no problem manipulating others.
But she is not at the highest level of government. So is anyone able to tell her no, but will we see her?
And there are her interactions with Kishibe. The strongest devil hunter doesn’t trust her! But he still obeys her orders.
Does Makima have a way of keeping everyone engaged, or is she just targeting certain individuals? She fears power, but everyone loves her except Himeno.
Suppose Makima knew about the user Katana Man and Snake Devil. Did she target the humans to help them so Himeno would be forced to choose between herself and saving everyone?
Is there a limit to what Makima can do? And if not, why hasn’t she taken a more active role in the anime?
