Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 16 might be one of the best anime episodes of 2023. It featured not only one but two of the most hyped fights of Shibuya Arc.
After exorcising Dagon, Toji took Megumi away from his group to fight.
The group that stayed behind was burned by Jogo, who later revived Sukuna after feeding Itadori ten fingers at once. Sukuna later challenged Jogo to a fight.
The thing episode 16 did differently is that it added more content to these fights, which wasn’t available in the manga series.
Moreover, the choreography of these fights was flawless, and the hand-to-hand combat between characters was reminiscent of the fights in “The God of High School.”

Megumi fought Toji without knowing the fact that he was fighting his father. Megumi brought forth almost all of his shinigami to defeat Toji and tried to be sneaky to death Toji.
As Toji was driven by his instincts, he couldn’t hold back against Megumi. He even stabbed Megumi with the Playful Cloud, which he used to kill Dagon.
Suddenly, Toji remembered the time he thought of trading Megumi for money to the Zennin clan. This made him regain consciousness for a while.
He immediately asked Megumi for his name, who replied with “Fushigoro.” Toji was glad to hear that his son didn’t go to the Zennin clan that treated him like trash.
Upon hearing his answer, he shoved the Playful Cloud into his head, and his soul vanished. Megumi went close to check on him, but his body had turned back to the vessel used to bring Toji back to life.

Sukuna vs Jogo
As Kusakabe is about to attack Geto’s soldiers, Jogo comes flying out from nowhere. Sukuna follows behind him as Jogo tries to land a hit on him.
But as he is doing so, Sukuna’s cursed technique never lets him attack with his flame-cursed technique. Jogo remembers when he asked Pseudo-Geto how many fingers of Sukuna he is equivalent to.
This was an overstatement, as he cannot lay a finger on Sukuna right now. As this fight continues, Kusakabe recommends everyone run before they get crushed in this dispute of special-grade spirits.
But Sukuna instantly arrives near them and orders them to stay, and if they leave without his permission, death awaits them.
On the top, Jogo is preparing his final cursed technique, “Maximum Meteor,” aimed directly at Sukuna, standing beside Panda and Kusakabe.
Jogo releases his techniques in Sukuna’s direction, and as soon as it is about to hit the ground, Sukuna allows Kusakabe and others to leave.
After this, Sukuna reveals his other cursed technique, which is the same as Jogo’s flame-cursed technique. As soon as they exchange blows of fire, Jogo gets burned to death.
Jogo is later seen in the afterlife with Hanami and Dagon. Sukuna visits him and tells him to be more proud as he is strong. Jogo starts crying, with no knowledge of what emotion he is feeling.
