Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236 showed the death of Satoru Gojo and the only remaining hope for the Jujutsu Sorcerers to defeat Kenjaku and Sukuna lies in Hajime Kashimo. The Kashimo vs Sukuna battle will be a decisive and intensive battle, as the former holds experience of time and age, along with his immeasurable strength and desire to fight Sukuna.
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236: Who is Hajime Kashimo and how strong is he?
Hajime Kashimo is a 400-year-old sorcerer in Jujutsu Kaisen and is currently possessing a vessel that Kenjaku prepared for the Culling Game in search of fighting the King of Curses, Sukuna.
- He mostly lives for fighting strong opponents and quickly became bored of the Culling Game even after brutally slaughtering over 40 players.
- His search for Sukuna is interrupted by Panda and Hakari, where he finds Panda a very uninteresting opponent while Hakari proves to be a real treat for the likes of him.
While Kashimo lost to Hakari, upon learning that the latter was Sukuna’s senpai, he agreed to take sides with Hakari and face Sukuna. He is a master hand-to-hand combatant and possesses a great battle intellect. Kashimo’s cursed energy manipulation is of two general types: an electrified cursed energy and a lightning discharge. He also uses a Nyoi Staff which acts as a lightning rod for accumulating his charges. He uses polearm attacks which are accompanied by a masterful Taijutsu.
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236 leaks: Is Kashimo strong enough to defeat Sukuna?
According to the JJK 236 leaks, Hajime Kashimo is the best chance for the Jujutsu Sorcerers to defeat Sukuna. He is extremely strong and easily overpowers the Culling Game. Moreover, he is extremely passionate and willing to face Sukuna, an indicator that the former is obsessed with strong opponents. While Sukuna is extremely worn out after the fight with Gojo, the Kushimo vs Sukuna battle will also see the participation of Kenjaku.
- Kashimo has been waiting for centuries to fight Sukuna, and this event comes as a breakthrough for him to showcase his skills against the King of Curses.
- Being a ruthless killer, Kushimo is psychologically similar to Sukuna, as both of them share a thirst for victory and a desire to defeat the strong.
This sense of urgency to face unfathomable crises makes both of them very similar, yet they stand as opponents in their cause and being. Kashimo is strong enough to defeat Sukuna, but it will be an interesting take on the portrayal of a more robust sorcerer in the Jujutsu Kaisen Universe other than Gojo.
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236 leaks: If not Kashimo, then who?
While we have known Yuji Itadori and Yuta Okkotsu as the major protagonists of the show, Kashimo’s arrival entirely changes the narrative and the perspective of the strength matrix. Being the best choice there is, Kashimo could really prove to be a final answer to Sukuna’s defeat. While the other Jujutsu Sorcerers are also extremely skilled and powerful, their comparison to Sukuna or Kashimo is justifiably underestimated.
In the Kashimo vs Sukuna battle, it will also be an integral move for Yuji, Yuta, Maki, and the rest of the sorcerers to join in to secure an absolute victory. It is important because of the fact that Sukuna and Kenjaku cannot be defeated by Kashimo alone, and this has no longer remained a one-man’s battle like before.
The extreme adversity that the Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236 unfolds is unthinkable and incomparable to any form of threat that the sorcerers might’ve faced earlier. This only calls for the Kashimo vs Sukuna battle as a decisive duel to end the war and a final hope for peace in the world which has been broken apart by the chaos of the curses.
