Denji and Makima recover
The editor of the original Chainsaw Man manga that was released particularly focused on Makima’s description of the more emotional weight of physical intimacy is what the editor wants to convey to fans: “When it comes to naughty things, I think the more you understand the other person, the better you feel.” Makima’s words. Seriously, those are the words I want to reach many young people. It’s a scene that makes me personally think it’s not a mommy’s pleasure. As Denji discovers when he touches Power’s chest earlier in the episode, physical intimacy was ultimately empty.
