When the shots begin getting fired, there are undoubtedly some main victims – together with an ending that teased a serious loss for Aki!


In “Gunfire”, the Gun Satan’s forces catch the Tokyo Satan Hunters whereas they’re taking a day to attempt to solidify their bonds. Actually, it is a scheme that Denji and Himeno provide you with, after deciding to not sleep collectively: Denji will attempt to assist Himeno get with Aki, whereas Himeno will assist Denji get with Makima.
