Warning: The next article comprises spoilers for Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter #161, “Tokyo No. 1 Colony, Part 1,” by Gege Akutami, John Werry and Snir Aharon, obtainable in English from Viz Media.
Beforehand in Jujutsu Kaisen, Yuji and Megumi had fastidiously deliberate how they might navigate the damaging Culling Recreation when getting into. Two of their targets had been to stay collectively and to realize factors with out killing anybody. To this point the previous side has already crumbled, and after the occasions of Chapter #161, it appears inevitable the latter will too.
Yuji and Megumi are separated instantly after getting into the barrier within the Tokyo colony they selected. When gamers cross by way of Culling Recreation limitations, the sport randomly transfers them to one in all 9 pre-established areas. It is also value noting that sure people are positioned at these 9 areas because of an unofficial rule that took place, however these people’ identities are but to be revealed.
Yuji and Megumi are thus far aside that Megumi’s Nue cannot even discover any indicators of Yuji’s whereabouts. They are not too bothered by their separation, nonetheless, since they each know what to search for. Yuji could even be relieved since he was apprehensive about Sukuna’s curiosity in Megumi. Their first goal, nonetheless, stays to assemble data on Higuruma.
Megumi believes Higuruma could also be one of many sorcerers from the previous who made contracts with Kenjaku. His reasoning is the truth that Higuruma already has 100 factors, which suggests he is already killed 100 individuals since getting into the Culling Recreation. Megumi and Yuji agree they need to be cautious of incarnated sorcerers from the previous, as a result of they valued life otherwise over 100 years in the past and desired preventing to the dying.
Jujutsu Kaisen readers already know that Higuruma is not from the previous, although. He is a modern-day sorcerer and can doubtless be one of many first-years’ hardest foes. Regardless, it is good that they are cautious of him probably being from the previous as a result of he actually appears as harmful because the precise incarnated sorcerers, if no more.
Yuji is straight away attacked from mid-air after getting into the barrier however makes fast work of his opponent, Hanyu, who clearly underestimated him. Hanyu’s accomplice, Haba, arrived on the scene shortly, and Yuji intends to query him about Higuruma. Curiously, Hanyu’s different accomplice, Amai, appears to know Yuji from someplace beforehand.
Megumi shortly makes his personal opponent, a lady named Remi, give up and be a part of him. She even agrees to inform him what she is aware of about Higuruma, if he turns into her knight. In different phrases, she needs Megumi to be her protector. He agrees with out hesitation however nonetheless threatens Remi in case she plans to lie. Megumi thinks to himself that he is not like Yuji as a result of he has no difficulty scoring 100 factors by no matter means mandatory.
Jujutsu Kaisen establishing that want to attain 100 factors could also be foreshadowing Megumi inevitably killing a minimum of one individual. If he does, will probably be attention-grabbing to see the way it impacts his character going ahead. Furthermore, how would it not make Yuji really feel? In any case, Yuji’s difficulty with killing people is the main motive they’d deliberate to attain factors with out killing anybody.
