Warning: the next article comprises spoilers for Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 167, Tokyo Colony No. 1, Half 7″ by Gege Akutami, John Werry and Snir Aharon, out there in English from Viz Media.

Megumi Fushiguro and Yuji Itadori entered the Culling Sport pondering they’d all of it found out. They thought they knew its objective and Kenjaku’s goal and so got here up with a plan, gathered allies and charged in. Little did they know, the already difficult Culling Sport is much more complicated than they believed. Kenjaku continues to display that there is at all times extra to him than meets the attention.

Kenjaku has confirmed himself as a grasp manipulator and at all times appears to be no less than 20 steps forward. This is the reason it is not precisely a shock that there is extra to his plans than what he revealed on the finish of the Shibuya Incident arc. What’s intriguing about that is the way it could find yourself impacting Fushiguro and Itadori’s plans, and the Culling Sport as an entire.

Megumi and Reggie in Jujutsu Kaisen

Fushiguro’s earlier look was in Chapter 163 when Remi led him to her ally, Reggie, after letting him consider she was taking him to Higuruma. Fushiguro is able to combat upon realizing the deception, nevertheless, Reggie has one thing else in thoughts. He is impressed by Fushiguro’s energy, which he assessed primarily based on his shikigami, so he means that Fushiguro ally with him, which comes as a shock to Remi.

Reggie asks Megumi how a lot he is aware of in regards to the Culling Sport and Megumi explains (leaving out particulars about Grasp Tengen). So far as Megumi is aware of, it is a ritual for utilizing the Cursed Vitality of the gamers contained in the barrier, with the intention of crossing the folks of Japan to the opposite facet so that they’ll not be common people. In different phrases, turning them into sorcerers, cursed spirits, or one thing past.

Reggie informs Fushiguro that utilizing the gamers’ Cursed Vitality is most probably one among Kenjaku’s plans. His causes for believing this are the variety of gamers, the gamers’ differing ability ranges and the barrier guidelines. Principally, if there are 1000 gamers equally distributed within the 10 colonies, meaning there are 100 folks in every colony. Among the many 100 are sure gamers who’re far stronger than the others, equivalent to Higuruma and Kashimo, who was launched again in Chapter 158. These two alone have already culled round 60 sorcerers.

There’s no less than one particular person in every barrier with an identical degree of energy as Higuruma and Kashimo, which implies that after the early phases, the Culling Sport will rapidly attain a impasse as solely the strongest will stay.  Then there’s the transferal that happens when gamers enter a colony. This was the explanation Itadori and Fushiguro have been separated. Whereas scattering folks is among the recreation’s goals, its foremost purpose is to stimulate early second awakenings in modern-day sorcerers, which some have really died from.

Reggie fairly deduces that if the purpose is de facto to make use of gamers’ Cursed Vitality, lengthy and drawn-out battles amongst many sorcerers can be the way in which to go. This assumption is smart contemplating what number of sorcerers Higuruma and Kashimo have killed and the way rapidly. Lengthy battles would enable the newly woke up sorcerers to get stronger and develop their Cursed Strategies, which might absolutely make their Cursed Vitality extra helpful. Then there’s the truth that some gamers die from merely coming into a colony. It is senseless that Kenjaku would enable so many gamers to die off so simply if his foremost purpose is to make the most of Cursed Vitality.

Reggie is definite that there is one thing greater at play within the Culling Sport and that Kenjaku will drop a bomb when solely the strongest sorcerers are left, by which level the Culling Sport can have fulfilled its objective. His speculations are considerably confirmed when Kenjaku is proven assembly with a gaggle of important-looking males. Apparently, one of many males addresses Kenjaku in Chinese language and he responds in type. This appears to indicate that Kenjaku has made his strategy to China and is making strikes there. Much more curious is the truth that he was invited.

This mysterious assembly raises questions on Kenjaku’s affect outdoors of Japan. It is unclear whether or not the boys he meets with on this chapter are conscious that he is a sorcerer, however it’s undoubtedly a chance. If they’re, they could be sorcerers themselves. Maybe some even woke up Cursed Strategies due to him. It is going to be fascinating to see how they match into his grasp plan.

Fushiguro and Itadori will most probably have extra work to do within the Culling Sport than they initially meant. This bomb that Kenjaku goes to drop will seemingly change your entire scenario for the more severe and lift the stakes even greater. There at the moment are much more questions surrounding the mysterious Kenjaku’s motives than earlier than as he appears to have countless methods up his sleeve. It is no marvel followers have deemed him among the finest villains to return out of any ongoing Shonen Jump manga.
