In the most recent chapters, the Jujutsu Kaisen manga series has left fans on edge, relentlessly continuing its spree of bloodshed.
After taking the life of a significant character a few chapters back, the latest installment further revealed the ruthless side of Ryomen Sukuna.
With the death of Hajime Kashimo in chapter 238, the situation of the manga has changed from a typical shonen manga to something much more peculiar.
The chapter concluded with the unexpected appearance of the lawyer, Higurama, and our lead hero, Yuji Itadori.
While the next chapter is highly awaited, fans will have to wait a bit longer; the manga is on a brief hiatus this week and will resume next week.
Spoilers are expected to drop next Wednesday, as usual.
Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 239 is set to release on October 15, 2023, and here’s what you can expect from it!
Kinji Hakari vs. Uraume Spotlight (Likely)
The fight between the prominent sorcerers and The King of Curses kicked off a few chapters ago, and the main focus of the series is still undeterred.
However, another fight is taking tremendous turns in the background: the fight between Kinji Hakari and Uraume.
At the end of chapter 238, Hakari’s domain broke, and both he and Uraume are out of his expanded domain.
Hakari is still laughing as he got the best of her in the domain, and Uraume seems to have experienced a little fatigue.
Yuji’s Cursed Technique Reveal (Possible)
Every character in the series has managed to receive their peculiar spotlight, and their innate abilities have been revealed. But, our beloved main protagonist, Itadori Yuuji, has yet to reveal his maximum potential.
And now, he seems to be getting his deserved spotlight in the next chapter. At the end of the previous chapter, Yuuji and Higurama arrive at the battlefield to fight the atrocious villainy, Ryomen Sukuna.
However, it seems Yuuji has received a significant power-up while off-screen.
If you look closely at Yuuji’s design, he received a significant change on his arms, with pointy nails, which look inhumane.
This hints at his anticipated Cursed Technique reveal, which will happen in the next chapter.
Yuji and Higurama vs. Ryomen Sukuna (Likely)
After Sukuna managed to take down two of the most potent sorcerers alone, it is now time for our main character to take the spotlight along with Higurama.
If the chapter does not focus on Uraume and Hakari, it will undoubtedly focus on the prominent situation between Yuji, Higurama, and Sukuna.
If you are familiar with the Culling Games arc, Higurama is undoubtedly one of the most potent and exciting characters introduced in the series so far.
His domain expansion is also quite interesting to witness, and this time, it will be used adequately against Sukuna.
On the other hand, this fight can help Yuji to reveal his maximum potential to us. Although Yuji managed to punch Sukuna with intense speed in chapter 214, it was just a speck of his potential.
We are bound to see the peak of Yuji Itadori very soon!
