Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 260 recap – the ghost of Gojo casts a Domain Expansion

Gojo Satoru in Jujutsu Kaisen anime season 2

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 260 recap would have to focus greatly on the climactic end of the chapter with the return of the ghost of Gojo. Much like the return of Madara Uchiha, Gojo Satoru in JJK 260 managed to terrorize Sukuna’s being and soul by sheer appearance.

The chapter began with Todo and Yuji fighting against Sukuna until Yuji managed to land a thorough punch through the latter’s chest, and it ended with a silhouette of Gojo Satoru appearing before Sukuna and probably casting a Domain Expansion. While the chapter has various threads and strings attached to its narrative, the trunk of it arises out of Gojo’s return in JJK 260.

JJK 260 can be basically divided into four major parts. Firstly, the return of Aoi Todo and the introduction of his new device. Secondly, Yuji and Todo vs Sukuna that rages into a battle of speed, strength and surprise. Thirdly, it is Yuji’s heart crushing blow into Sukuna’s chest and the eventual domain expansion that the King of Curses attempts to cast. Lastly, it is Gojo’s appearance that shifts the ground and left the chapter hanging off a cliff.

Aoi Todo’s new Boogie Woogie is funny yet frightening

Aoi Todo’s new Boogie Woogie is born out of his new device that has replaced his missing left arm and has been named as the Vibraslap. JJK 260 recap would majorly suffice with this new technique as the chapter has greatly focused on its use and implications.

Todo managed to further polish his technique and fine tune his device with the help of Yuta Okkotsu at the Lake Gosho Colony. Todo’s Vibraslap in JJK 260 managed to frighten even Sukuna and it became a terror for the demon himself. This technique has managed to rescue and retrieve all allies from the Malevolent Shrine who were trapped in it, failing only to rescue Choso and Yuji.

Yuji and Todo vs Sukuna – a raging battle of intellect

Yuji and Todo vs Sukuna is a battle that has to be accredited as one of the most exciting battles in Jujutsu Kaisen. Not only did it start with a confused Sukuna and an overpowering Yuji and Todo partnership, it also showcased the potential that the duo hold as a team.

The battle starts with Todo scanning Sukuna’s abilities and constantly swapping Yuji, allowing the latter to attack Sukuna from all possible blind spots. At one moment, when Sukuna seemed to be carelessly maneuvering through the battle, Todo swaps a pebble with Yuji, allowing him to land a strong kick on Sukuna and crushing him to the floor.

Not only that, the attacks by Yuji and Todo on Sukuna in Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 260 were deemed impossible to comprehend by Sukuna himself. The number of swaps and the uncertainty of their occurrence completely overwhelmed Sukuna, making him helplessly fall to his knees in this battle of wits.

Yuji’s Black Flash in JJK 260 and Sukuna’s Domain Expansion

Sukuna desperately tried to read Yuji and Todo in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 260. During one such instance, the King of Curses felt that he has identified a pattern and swooped in to grab and demolish Yuji’s attack. However, a three fold attack completely overpowered Sukuna, bringing him to his knees.

The entire sequence started when Sukuna turned around to attack Yuji. In that moment, Yuji was swapped and Sukuna turned to defend his blind spot, surprised and shocked. However, another shocking truth was waiting him as Mei Mei’s crows appeared where Yuji was supposed to. Seeing an opening, Yuji attacks Sukuna with a Black Flash and uses his bladed hands to pierce through his chest.

In that moment, despite dropping amounts of Cursed Energy, Sukuna decided to cast his Domain Expansion. Sukuna as a sorcerer is highly efficient with Cursed Energy, and even with his levels dropping to that of Yuta’s, he can still cast a domain countless times as long as he is able to restore his burnt out cursed technique.

Domain Expansion in JJK 260 – but who does it belong to?

Yuji and Todo cannot cast a Domain Expansion. Yuji can cast a simple domain but that serves as a defensive barrier and has no plausible offensive end to it. Given that Sukuna has the ability to cast one, and knowing that it is certain to given him an upper hand with a sure hit effect, he desperately makes the Indra sign and proceeds to cast his domain.

However, in that moment, the ghost of Gojo Satoru in Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 260 appears as a silhouette. The ghost of the only man whose domain is fatal for Sukuna. The only man whose DE shivers his spine and moves the earth under his feet. It is possible that this ghost actually cast the domain before Sukuna could. Moreover, Malevolent Shrine is an instant domain and the chapter doesn’t end with one.

Various speculations suggest that Gojo Satoru cast this domain expansion and it will be Infinite Void vs Malevolent Shrine in Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 261. For this moment, we can only hope and wait for time to give us our answers.

Final Thoughts

The return of Gojo in JJK 260 is only a theory that sounds very pleasant and a reality we desperately wish to be true. Whether it be Gojo’s arrival in the battlefield or simply Sukuna’s fears taking form, the next chapter will be filled with exciting maneuvers and revelations, placing on stage the final moments of this long and disastrous battle.
