Jujutsu Kaisen fans will surely be surprised by what Gege Akutami has in store for them. Now that the latest manga chapter of the series has been released, many are waiting for the next action in the upcoming Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 159. Let’s have a short discussion of the previous chapter.
Previously on Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 158
The previous chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen, titled “Kogane”, starts with Kinji Hakari, shocked upon hearing about Gojo being sealed. It’s not surprising to see him in this surprise, as Gojo is considered as one of the strongest sorcerers.
As they prepared to handle the culling game, Kogane appeared and revealed the changes to the rules. According to the new information, a player has added a rule to allow players to view the information of other players. Initially, Itadori and Megumi don’t have any idea who is responsible for the addition of the new rule.
However, thanks to the new rule’s feature, they were able to determine that Kashimo Hajime was responsible for this action. In addition, they also came up with a plan to help every one of them survive.
As the manga continues, Megumi and Itadori get the details of the two highest-scoring sorcerers. These are Higuruma Hiromi with a total of 102 points and Kashimo Hajime with 100 points. With the number of points that they have gathered since the Culling Game began, Itadori and the others now know who they will hunt. The manga chapter ends with Itadori declaring he will hunt down Hajime and Hiromi.
What to Expect in the Next Chapter
As seen in the cliffhanger of Chapter 158, Itadori and his allies were able to pinpoint their next target. With the intel and new allies that they have, it’s likely that Yuji and Itadori will start moving. Since we already got the name of their next target, they will likely get to their location as soon as possible. Time is running and with their plan to add a new rule, they should immediately take down and grab some points from these foes.
The previous chapter also sees Hajime mentioning Sukuna. Knowing that he knows Sukuna, Itador might have a hard time dealing with this opponent. Well, let’s see how they will be able to defeat these enemies in the next chapter of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga series.
