Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 242 Release Date, Time & Where To Read

Jujutsu Kaisen: Chapter 242

Jujutsu Kaisen is now onto its 11th arc overall, called the Shinjuku Showdown Arc. This has been an intense arc, with a massive character dying in Chapter 236. We won’t list that here but with Sukuna attaining a new body, the final conflict between the strongest is nigh. Will the victory be awarded to the jujutsu sorcerers or the King of Curses? One thing’s for certain though, this fight is far from over.

If you’ve been following this manga, you may be curious to know when the next chapter will be released. Well, wonder no more!

Here is everything you need to know about chapter 242 of Jujutsu Kaisen, including the release date, time, and where to watch this.

Where Can I Read Jujutsu Kaisen?

Jujutsu Kaisen can be read at several different places online. Viz Media is available for those in the US and Canada, while Manga Plus has the rights to air the new chapters. However, it will also be available to read on Shonen Jump too. 

The printed volumes only go up to number 24 in Japan at the time of writing, so reading online is the definitive way to read this one.

Jujutsu Kaisen: Chapter 242 Release Date

Jujutsu Kaisen’s manga will be on break next week. Chapter 242 will likely be released on Sunday 19th November at approximately 3pm (GMT) / 8am (PT) / 11am (ET). Of course, it’s dependent on how quickly these chapters are uploaded. Expect this to be pretty close to the release time though.

All other chapters are available to read on the above websites, while the ongoing anime is also available on Crunchyroll.

Expect the chapter to be roughly 18-20 pages long like this one. 

How Many Chapters Will Jujutsu Kaisen Have?

It was announced earlier this year that Gege wants to be done with Jujutsu Kaisen by the end of 2023. However, the chances are this one will be going for another 30-40 chapters to wrap up the current arc that’s ongoing.

What Happened In Chapter 241?

In Chapter 241, we get a glimpse of Takaba during his college days. He spends his time goofing around with his companion and performing skits. After belittling his friend for arriving late for rehearsals, his friend opens up and says he’s tired of Takaba’s comedy. Later in life, Takaba is shown reading hurtful comments from audience members. Even his friend questions how long he’ll continue as a comedian. 

As Takaba engages with his child-self, we learn he pursued entertainment for recognition purposes and wanted to make many people laugh. As time went on, he relied on his usual hysterical routines and refused to try something different. Then, we return to his fight with Kenjaku. Takaba bows and apologizes for overlooking Kenjaku as a listener of his work.

Takaba vows to make everyone in the world laugh, including Kenjaku. The chapter closes with Kenjaku questioning Takaba on his oath.
