In the previous Chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen, Takaba and Kenjaku’s on-stage moments made everyone laugh, and that conversation ended with Yuta joining in. Yuta appears at the last moment to deal a surprise blow to Kenjaku.
Immediately, Yuta dealt a fatal blow to Kenjaku and decapitated the curse, making fans wonder if this was Kenjaku’s last leg.
It was truly one of the most thrilling moments for fans JJK; however, there are more surprises for the fandom to look forward to. Since the confrontation between Sukuna and Yuji has finally begun, everyone is excited to see what this week’s Chapter has in store.
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 244 features Yuji and Higuruma fighting Sukuna
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 244 shifting focus from Yuta and Kenjaku to Yuji and Sukuna as the former head towards the battlefield with Higuruma. We see every sorcerer in a flashback as they prepare their plan to fight the curse king. Kusakabe says they have to decide who should join the fight and who should stay. However, Kashimo interrupted by calling this an all-out war; he believes that everyone should have a chance to fight Sukuna.
Kusakabe said that Miwa swore to never participate in a fight. The next moment, we see them talking about how Kenjaku will be killed by Yuta if Gojo loses. Naritoshi apologizes that he will not participate in the battle and confirms that his first priority is his family and he does not want them to suffer.
Kusakabe then mentions that those who are capable of using RCT and those who do not hesitate to sacrifice themselves in battle can move forward, while others can take a back seat. Yuji tries to comfort Kamo by saying that he has supported him a lot so far. He also said that Choso was a bad teacher. Higuruma chooses to go after Kashimo because he can use his CT to take over Sukuna’s CT.
Kashimo didn’t seem confident so he asked: “Do you really think I will lose? I’m annoyed.” Hakari appreciates him for giving an important place to Gojo.
Apply the death penalty
Kashimo asks Higuruma if he can impose the death penalty on Sukuna with his CT, but Yuji says that it will be entirely up to Judgeman. He also said that Higuruma couldn’t do anything about this. The boy mentioned that Sukuna killed many people every time he transformed.
Higuruma details his crimes, starting with Yuji’s possession. He also mentions that the evil curse brutally murdered Yuji Itadori (it was his good deeds that brought him back to life). His list goes on to talk about the murders he committed, including the murder of Gojo Satoru.
Higuruma goes on to say that he was the one who possessed and harmed Megumi and used her body to steal a corpse. He then said that if the Judge considered all this, he would certainly give the enemy the death penalty. However, he also mentioned that his CT only chooses one crime at a time.
After a discussion between the sorcerers, we finally see the battlefield where Sukuna destroyed Mei Mei’s birds. She recalls that her birds had no effect on Sukuna, Gojo and Kenjaku.
However, she begins to distract the curse king to buy Higuruma time as he uses his hammer to break Sukuna’s stance, and at the same time, Yuji throws fragments at him. Afterwards, Higuruma restricted him from using his weapon for a while. When Yuji throws a heavy punch at Sukuna, we see his body shake.
Higuruma activates the Deadly Judgment and the next moment we are greeted with a flashback scene in which Yuji asks the former if they can use the traces from the fight in Shibuya to prove Sukuna’s guilt in front of the Judge or not. However, things go wrong when the trail begins in the present and the Judge suspects Yuji of the Shibuya murders. Higuruma defends Yuji by saying that he is not the culprit, but this Chapter ends before we can witness the Judgeman’s final verdict.
