Here’s how Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 255 leaks finally break the cycle of death

The Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 255 leaks have finally broken a cyclical curse that seeped in like a plague in the narrative and scourged it from within. For the longest time, death has been a very common happening in the series and most characters were simply used as a prop. Moreover, a cycle where every new character would do little damage but eventually be defeated by a disinterested Sukuna had been the norm.

Most characters, like Hiromi Higuruma and Hajime Kashimo, were simply put to rest once they started proving to be a threat to Sukuna’s existence. The entire narrative was hell bent on eliminating everyone that came after Gojo Satoru to face Sukuna. Not only were they deemed imperfect for a being like Sukuna, they were also labeled as inferior from the moment they were introduced. A sharp disparity of power was always evident in all of these battles.

However, the recently released leaks for Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 255 have proven to be a way out of this inexorable web of tragedy. A nuanced look into the leaks also prove that the return of the band of sorcerers is in fact a symbol of strength, something that has been lacking against Sukuna for the longest time.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 255 leaks managed to break the curse of death by bringing back characters we thought were dead already. Maki and Choso were heavily injured and we had no idea of what was going on in the backdrop of the battle. In such times, Yuji and Yuta who were also thrown out of the battlefield and were deemed incapable enough to face Sukuna. While this was already hard enough to endure for the fandom, Kusakabe was further put to trial and Ui Ui was going to be unalived.

In all of this, Miguel entered and saved everyone. While Larue assisted Kusakabe’s body out of the battlefield and to safety, Miguel bought some time for the others to land an attack on Sukuna. This is for the first time in a long while that we have seen a subversion from death in the manga and it is very rousing to witness such an event, even if that is anomaly for the time being.

JJK 255 leaks have revealed several layers of events that have unfolded like Matryoshka dolls. One layer after the other, there was a range of activities going on. It also manages to break the monotony of the past by being interested enough in giving time to the past and also characters other than Sukuna. Moreover, the chapter has also given us a look into the characters of Miguel and Larue amidst the Miguel vs Sukuna battle, something that brings out a lot of hope from the chapter at hand.

1. Miguel and Larue – old pals reunited against their greatest nightmare

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 255 begins with Miguel on the battlefield being joined by Larue, an old gang member who used to be an ally during Geto’s times. Larue also managed to retrieve Kusakabe from the battlefield using his technique. The chapter then dives into a flashback where Miguel is seen discussing the plan of action with Yuta in the past.

Miguel initially rejects Yuta’s proposal to join the battle against Sukuna, however, he eventually agrees saying that he will only fight against the monster after Gojo and Yuta lose and once Sukuna’s domain cannot be used. He also says that he wants Larue to fight with him and accompany him during battle.

2. Miguel’s Hakuna Lana and Larue’s Heart Catch – two new CTs against Sukuna in JJK 255 leaks

JJK 255 leaks then comes back to the present day, where Miguel and Larue observe that Sukuna is unable to use his domain and is heavily injured with a bleeding heart. Larue uses his Cursed Technique to grab a hold of Sukuna and slams him against a wall. Larue’s CT is termed as ‘Heart Catch’, a technique that allows him to summon an imaginary hand to grab the opponent. If the hand is destroyed, it can be restored with Larue being inflicted with ten percent of that damage.

Just when Sukuna sends slashes flying towards Miguel and Larue, the former easily dodges them and jumps between them, revealing that his Cursed Technique ‘Hakuna Lana’ alllows him to catch a rhythm of the opponent’s curses and easily dodge them while enhancing his physical abilities. The technique brings out Buffs and Debuffs of himself and the opponent without the use of a domain. This is something that Sukuna finds very attractive, but it is simply not powerful enough to defeat him.

Moreover, Gojo once said that Miguel has extraordinary physical strength that doesn’t arise out of cursed energy. His skeletal structure and muscles allow him to exert a great deal of energy compared to a Japanese sorcerer.

3. Choso and Yuji land two bombastic hits on Sukuna in JJK 255 leaks!

In the present time, Sukuna is punched by Miguel and at the same time Choso enters the battlefield and hits Sukuna’s back with his Supernova. At this moment, Yuji also emerges out of thin air and lands on Sukuna, slamming him to the ground. Just when Sukuna was about to use his World Cutting Slash, Maki enters the battle and slashes Sukuna’s arm.

4. Its Maki time! The woman with no CE lives through a Black Flash, Sukuna lands another

Maki Zenin, the blood-crazed and battle-hardened lioness, has a disturbingly horrifying smile on her face during Jujutsu Kaisen 255. She has survived Sukuna’s Black Flash and has chosen to give him a tough time again. At this moment, Yuji runs towards Sukuna hoping that he would defeat him with his bare hands when the monster is still unable to use his domain or perform any hand signs to summon any other CT.

Just when all hopes were up and the stakes were high, Sukuna chooses to break all excitement and land another Black Flash on Larue. It is now believed that two consecutive Black Flash could result in a reactivation of RCT. While that had already happened with Gojo Satoru, the same phenomenon repeating itself with Sukuna sounds like a long shot.

Moreover, an assumption like this would mean that Sukuna is fairly invincible at this point. A reactivation of his RCT would simply mean that he is going to win all battles henceforth and eventually wipe out the entire clan of Jujutsu sorcery.

Will JJK 255 grant Sukuna back his RCT?

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 255 leaks have hinted towards Sukuna acquiring his RCT back. With two consecutive Black Flash, the King of Curses might have finally unlocked the doors that were restricting him. Moreover, JJK 255 has also hinted towards Larue’s death, but it has not been explicitly shown in the chapter. This is a very crucial point in the story.

From this moment on, if Sukuna regains RCT, he will be an untouchable in this war and no amount of power would be able to stop him. Moreover, if he doesn’t regain his RCT, Gege would recover that suspense with the death of Larue. This is a bet we are going to have to make and a consequence we are going to have to wait for.
