The World Ends with You Episode 11 Spoilers
In episode 10, Bitou wakes Neku up. Another day has passed, and they haven’t found Mitsuki yet. They realize that everyone around them, be it an ordinary person or reaper, is being controlled with the red pins. When Bitou wonders aloud if Cat is the Composer, Neku defends his idol, claiming that Hanekoma can never be the Composer. They discover that a section of the wall is broken and come across the summoning circle that Hanekoma drew earlier. With the app that Yoshiya insisted that he should install on his phone, Neku finds out who was responsible for it.
They run into mind-controlled Kouki and Uzuki and subdue them by removing the pins. They go to Hanekoma’s café for answers and discover that it has been ransacked. There, in an envelope, they find a yellow pin and instructions that might lead them to Mitsuki’s possible location. Later, they discover that it was Shou who was summoned. Shou reveals to them that he has been brought back as a Taboo Noise, which has given him enough power to take on the Composer. To test his abilities, he fights Neku and Bitou and easily defeats them. The following day, Neku and Bitou reach the location mentioned in Hanekoma’s note and find the wall already has been breached.
Realizing that it’s likely Shou, they go through the breach as well. The episode ends as Mitsuki appears after they leave, with a sinister smile playing on her face. In episode 11, Neku and Biou might have to fight Mitsuki. After they defeat her, they will likely face Kitaniji. Neku might find out that it was indeed Yoshiya who killed him.
