Denji turns into Chainsaw Man and fights Katana man. However, Katana Man gains the advantage when two men join the fight. Chainsaw Man takes one of the men hostages and threatens to kill him, but Katana Man cuts both Chainsaw Man and the hostage in half anyways. Katana Man grabs him by the handle on his head, and Denji is returned to normal. Katana Man and his crew now capture him.

We return to the train where Makima and Division 4 members were shot dead. It is revealed in Episode 9 that the only person that isn’t dead is Makima, who stands upright before the shooters can depart. She ends up slaying all of her attackers.

She tells them there is no time to try to make it to Tokyo so that she will deal with the situation in Kyoto. Yutarobrings 30 Mikima 30 convicts. Mikima uses these convicts to attack Katana man and Akane by stating the names of the Katana Man’s crew. This kills both the convicts and her targets.

Kobeni then appears and begins to battle Katana Man and Kane. First, Akane summons the Snake Devil, but Kobeni dodges it. She then runs on the Snake Devil’s tail and can cut off Katana man’s arm. Akane then grabs a gun, but before she can shoot, Kobeni grabs Deni and uses him as a human shield. Finally, Akane pulls Katana Man into a van and flees the scene.

In the last part of the episode, we see Makima, Michiko, and Yutaro arriving in Tokyo. It is then we see that Madoka survived. He tells them that most humans in Special divisions 1, 2, 3, and 4 died. He also explains that due to the shortage after the attacks, all four special divisions are merged into one, and Mikima is now their leader. At this point, Madoka hands in his resignation.
