Ryomen Sukuna has been reveling in chaos and tragedy. He’s been clashing with Gojo Satoru, taking down sorcerers one after another, and attaining incredible power in a brief span. As a result, Jujutsu Kaisen enthusiasts are constantly speculating about the next sorcerer Sukuna will challenge. Excitingly, Chapter 239 of the acclaimed manga is set to release on October 22, 2023. This week’s hiatus is due to the author, Gege Akutami, taking a short break.
With many of the elite sorcerers defeated by Sukuna, the onus is on Yuji to confront the King of Curses. Recent events suggest Yuji is discovering newfound abilities and undergoing a transformation.
Kashimo’s confrontation with Sukuna was swift and ended in his defeat. This led to fan debates, with some feeling Kashimo’s inclusion lacked purpose, especially since his battle with Sukuna was short-lived. Perhaps, Kashimo’s role was merely a distraction, allowing other characters time to strategize against Sukuna.
Chapter 238 delved deeper into Sukuna’s character, portraying him as a self-centered individual with ambitions only for himself, viewing others as mere stepping stones.
The recent chapter also showcased a collaboration between Higuruma and Yuji, hinting at a strategic approach. Fans are optimistic that Yuji’s evolution will tip the scales in favor of the sorcerers, but they’ll have to hold their anticipation until October 22 to discover the outcome.
