Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 246 recap



In Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 246, titled “Inhuman Makyo Shinjuku Showdown, Part 18”, showed Kusakabe figuring out Sukuna’s technique. Dismantle Slashes were the ones that flew and could cut the world if Sukuna broadened the scope. Cleave Slashes changed in strength based on the target and could be activated upon touch.

There was virtually no defense against any of them other than a regular Dismantle. As Kusakabe vowed to protect Higuruma, Choso attacked Sukuna. However, the Curse dodged the attack and pierced Choso’s stomach with two arms. Ino attacked with Nanami’s blade, which carried the late sorcerer’s 7-3 Cursed Technique, and managed to injure Sukuna as Yuji rescued Choso.

A flashback revealed that since the Executioner’s Sword could distinguish between souls in the same body and only killed the guilty soul, it could kill Sukuna if Judgeman gave him the Death Penalty, thus saving Megumi. At present, Higuruma figured out how to use Domain Amplification, impressing Sukuna with a talent “equal to Satoru Gojo’s.”

What to expect from Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 247 (speculation)

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 247 can
Choso’s fate remains unknown


Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 247 can focus on Hakari vs Uraume or return to where Yuta and Takaba are. However, considering how the previous chapter emphasized Higuruma’s talent and potential, a foray into his battle against Sukuna should be the main focus.

The chapter should also confirm Choso’s fate after Sukuna injured him. If the all-out battle continues, the focus will be on the executioner’s sword with Ino, Yuji, and Kusakabe providing support. As with every chapter since Yuji entered the battlefield, fans continue to hope that chapter 247 might finallyreveal his Cursed Technique.

Yuji’s plan to save Megumi is so straightforward and effective that it’s bound to go wrong. At this point, it’s unclear whether anything remains of Megumi’s soul at all. Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 247 might reveal whether there’s anything left for Yuji to save or if Megumi is gone for good.
