After Makima’s demise, Denji would end up being her caretaker for her pets and her Reincarnation Nayuta. Being informed that by Pochita that the greatest desire of the Control Devil was to establish an equal relationship with other people, Denji dedicated himself to making the Control Devil’s dream come true by lovingly taking care of Nayuta as well as becoming her own family, in order to not be a different Makima.

In time however their relationship would begin to change After being made to live with each other by Makima and collaborating with one another on missions, Aki and Denji slowly became friends, and would eventually be best friends. When faced with tragedy and grief, Denji and Aki comforted each other, for instance when Denji handed Aki an apple following Himeno’s passing or when Aki offered comfort to Denji about their trip being cancelled with Makima.

Following his transformation into The Gun Fiend, during his brutal rampage and fight in the battle with Denji, Aki would end being hallucinating, seeing everything as a battle with Denji. Tragically, Aki’s love affair with Denji was the reason for his loss at the demise by Denji: Aki stopped his violent rampage by imagining Denji screaming during the fight. He stopped his avalanche of snowballs (which were actually were actually bullets) since this was the only time that he ever witnessed Denji crying. This was enough time to permit Denji to cut through Aki’s body with chainsaws, and kill him.

The loss of Aki caused Denji to plunge into a spiral of depression and grief that culminated in Denji losing the will to live, unable accept the fact that he was the one who killed his closest friend. Denji’s desperation would drive to some extreme decisions including renunciation of his freedom of choice and submitting himself to Makima in order to get away from the painful reality that Aki had died.
