Jujutsu Kaisen 244 spoilers - Kenjaku's defeat shifts the story towards Yuji vs Sukuna

Jujutsu Kaisen 244 spoilers have recently dropped and the narrative has finally shifted towards Yuji vs Sukuna following Kenjaku’s defeat. While this marks the return of the plot to a much more serious series of events, the entire plot shall now focus on Sukuna and it will be inadvertently his narrative to control. While Yuji and Higuruma might have their own plans in place, we have to keep in mind that it is solely Sukuna’s battle to control and operate.

In this article, we will look at how the story will change following Kenjaku’s defeat and how Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 244 will primarily focus on the role of Yuji and Sukuna in centrality.

Jujutsu Kaisen 244 spoilers – a quick recap

Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 244 shifts the focus from Yuta vs. Kenjaku to Yuji’s struggle against Sukuna.

  • Kusakabe decided what would happen when Gojo and Kashimo both fell to Sukuna after choosing that Yuta and Takaba would face Kenjaku.
  • Miwa made a binding vow to herself in Shibuya not to use a katana again after her attack on Kenjaku, thus sending someone like her would be worthless.
  • Noritoshi Kamo backed out of the operation, claiming that his power couldn’t even help and that he’d like to leave overseas with his family.

  • Higuruma then stated that by utilizing Judgeman and prosecuting Sukuna, he might capture his Cursed technique and duel him with the Executioner’s Sword.
  • Kusakabe said that both of these circumstances were ambiguous since Higuruma couldn’t select which offense Judgeman would charge Sukuna with.

Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 244 returns to the fight, where Sukuna has defeated Mei Mei’s crows. Higuruma breaks Sukuna’s posture and binds Kamutoke, his weapon. Yuji launches debris at Sukuna, landing a punch that sends the Curse reeling.

Higuruma uses Domain Expansion Deadly Sentencing on Sukuna. Judgeman resumes his trial against Yuji from before, but Higuruma defends him by claiming that Sukuna is the genuine perpetrator of the crime.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 244 puts Yuji and Higuruma on a slippery slope

Following Kenjaku’s defeat in Jujutsu Kaisen 243, the narrative has shifted to the Yuji vs Sukuna battle, wherein Higuruma is fated to play a major role. He has been assigned an important duty which will not only threaten Sukuna but if backfired can even lead to Yuji’s death.

These plans however are based on mere speculations and comparative action, and their reality is yet to be checked and tested. Yuji and Higuruma might simply be pawns in Sukuna’s endgame, but their roles are yet to be revealed in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 244.

Yuji and Higuruma are major characters of Jujutsu Kaisen and being together on the battlefield against Sukuna is part of a well-versed and well-revised strategy. Yuji and Higuruma plan to eliminate Sukuna by using Higuruma’s technique, which will be the latter’s Domain Expansion. Not only is it designed to strip Sukuna of his CT, but it can also help Higuruma in using his Executioner’s Sword against the King of Curses, which is assumed to be a sure hit to eliminate Sukuna.

Jujutsu Kaisen 244 spoilers – Does Sukuna have an advantage over Higuruma and Yuji?

  • Jujutsu Kaisen 244 spoilers suggest that Sukuna is in shock and surprise at the recent events that have happened in such a quick succession before his eyes.
  • From Mei Mei’s crows attacking him, to Yuji landing a blow so powerful that it took Sukuna three arms to block the impact, the entire series of events have been extremely overwhelming for our antagonist.
  • However, Sukuna has an advantage over Higuruma’s CT, as the former holds both his and Megumi’s abilities at this point and the latter only holds the ability to block one at a given time.

Sukuna is a very tactical character and he cannot simply be put down using a plan so simple. There has to be a larger catch to this plan and it could either be Yuji or Higuruma planning for an alternate approach. Whatever the case, we can be pretty sure that only one of the three on the battlefield is going to be alive towards the end, and it will be either Yuji making a sacrifice or Sukuna pulling off a surprise which will decide the course of the narrative from here onwards.


Jujutsu Kaisen 244 spoilers have provided a glimpse and sneak peek into the Yuji vs Sukuna battle, of which Higuruma will be a central figure. Not only will this battle decide Sukuna’s fate, but it will also unravel Higuruma’s true potential and Sukuna’s invincibility of his being.

That being said, we must hope that Gege will be kind to Higuruma and Yuji and at least grant them a chance to fight before ending their characters tragically like all others. For more anime updates, subscribe to our newsletter at Spiel Anime!
