What Happened in JJK Chapter 242?
Well, most of the chapter was already leaked. On Twitter, there are many leakers such as JJK Mya, also known as Myamura.
He is a prominent leaker in the Jujutsu Kaisen community, particularly on Twitter. Nobody knows how he gets those leaks.
JJK Chapter 242 starts with Kenjaku summoning a special grade curse Akuro Ouohtake However, he was instantly killed by Takaba. Takaba’s power is to manipulate reality using his comedian cursed technique.
Kenjaku becomes a police officer and asks Takaba to breathe in a bag of water in which a goldfish is swimming.
If the fish dies he is arresting Takaba. However, the fish is already dead. Then they suddenly become doctors and try to revive the fish but they fail in doing so and then Kenjaku becomes a nurse.
After a while, Takaba conjures another scene in which they are both doing a quiz. Then Takaba hears the scream of a cat he tries to rescue. Turns out that cat is Kenjaku actually and he gets hit by a car. Another scene is conjured and they are now near a sea.
Kenjaku now realizes that his thoughts are getting manipulated again and again and if this goes on he will lose. The fight is not concluded and the chapter ends with Kenjaku challenging Takaba. Kenjaku says:
Warm-up time is over, it’s showtime partner.Kenjaku
At the end of the chapter, we see Kenjaku in front of the crowd on a stage and there is a mic in front of him. Perhaps, they will fight for whose more funnier in a live show.
What To Expect From JJK Chapter 243: Is Takaba Going To Win Against Kenjaku?
For now, the answer is uncertain, but it’s obvious that Takaba has the upper hand. His curse technique “Comedian” is beyond broken. He can create a reality from just his imagination and manipulate others’ imaginations too.
Some fans believe Takaba is even stronger than Sukuna if he learns to use his powers to the full extent. Before culling games, Takaba tried to become a comedian in real life but he failed.
Yuji was sidelined for far too long in the manga and then he appeared in front of Sukuna with new powers and got sidelined again with the entire focus on Takaba vs Kenjaku.
We believe that this chapter will conclude the fight between Takaba and Kenjaku. Takaba was not mentioned before much. However, he is so strong that even Kenjaku admires his ability. I mean the guy turned a special grade spirit into a nurse lol.
But we want to see Yuji as he was supposed to be the main character of the show but Geje keeps on sidelining him. Perhaps he was weak before and Geje didn’t want him to be killed.
Is Gojo Returning in JJK Chapter 243?
After taking over the body of Megumi completely. Sukuna was able to summon Agito and Mahoraga. Sukuna figured out how he could beat Gojo and save Megumi so that he could take over his body later. Sukuna finally managed to kill Gojo and he split his body in half.
After his death, Sukuna pretty much became unbeatable as there is nobody anymore who could challenge Sukuna and win. JJK is mostly related to Buddhism, meaning Rebirth, and Awakening is something that exists in the series as well.
In chapter 236 where Satoru Gojo dies in JJK, we see some specific keywords including “South” and “North”, symbolizing the Buddhist belief in coming back after dying.
We have already discussed How Gojo can Return in JJK? Perhaps this is finally going to happen. Gojo had a huge fan base and Gege decided to kill him off so fans believe Gege has a surprise for all of us but then again Nanami was also a fan favorite and Mahito killed him. For now, it’s uncertain if Gojo is returning or not. But I strongly believe he will come back.
The fight between Kenjaku and Takaba is still ongoing. We are hoping we will get to see Yuji vs Sukuna in the next chapter and perhaps if we are lucky we will see Gojo’s revival too. For now, all we can do is hope that Takaba defeats Kenjaku.
