Jujutsu Kaisen enthusiasts have been eagerly anticipating the next installment of this gripping manga series, and chapter 239 did not disappoint. It brought forth unexpected plot twists and intense confrontations that left fans clamoring for more.
Titled “Stupid Survivor,” this chapter took a surprising narrative turn, shifting the focus from the highly anticipated clash between Yuji Itadori and Sukuna to the cunning strategist, Kenjaku. An unfamiliar woman, bearing a striking resemblance to Takako Uro, was seen frantically fleeing from an ominous presence, all the while cursing Kenjaku for the cruel turn of events within the Culling Game. She raised questions about the morality of granting cursed individuals a second chance at life, only to snatch it away once more. However, her resistance was ultimately in vain, as Kenjaku ensnared her with a curse that resembled a jellyfish.
Kenjaku, the central antagonist, then unveiled his sinister plan to harness cursed energy. His ruthlessness appeared boundless, as he disposed of the woman, considering her a valuable piece in his grand scheme. He drew a chilling metaphor, likening them to spices whose intensity he adjusted until the “flavors” aligned with his intentions. With a heartless demeanor, he revealed that he had tracked down and transformed every reincarnated sorcerer into Cursed Objects, making them vulnerable to his nefarious designs.
In the midst of this chaos, Iori Hazenoki, another reincarnated sorcerer, bravely confronted Kenjaku, refusing to fall victim to his manipulations. Meanwhile, Kenjaku, armed with advanced technology, observed the epic showdown between Gojo and Sukuna, admiring Gojo’s formidable prowess. He revealed his extensive surveillance system, which allowed him to keep a watchful eye on Shinjuku and strategically plan his next moves.
The chapter escalated further as Kenjaku launched a merciless assault on Hazenoki, who struggled to escape his clutches. Kenjaku then laid bare his sinister plan: to eliminate all participants in the Culling Game and use their cursed energy to merge with Master Tengen, triggering a nationwide transformation. In his final moments, Hazenoki imparted cryptic words, urging Kenjaku to engage in introspection and seek answers within himself.
Just when the tension reached its zenith, Fumihiko Takaba entered the fray, boldly confronting Kenjaku head-on. Kenjaku, taken aback by Takaba’s unwavering resolve, recognized an extraordinary quality within him. Unperturbed, Takaba declared an all-out war against Kenjaku, setting the stage for an epic showdown.
