Jujutsu Kaisen: Chapter 257

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 reveal 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.

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 2024. However, there is the chance that this one will be going for another 30-40 chapters to wrap up the current arc that’s ongoing.

What Happened In Chapter 256?

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 256 starts with a flashback involving Satoru. In it, Satoru explains the principles behind Black Flash and why he can’t use it. Ultimately, he says he’d need massive luck to pull this off. Simultaneously, he says Nanami successfully performed this technique before. Satoru feels if his fights didn’t finish swiftly, he’d be able to use Black Flash. 

Then, we return to the present, receiving Maki, Miguel, Yuji, and Choso’s thoughts on the battlefield’s developments (so far). After that, our heroes continue battling Sukuna, with both sides giving it their best effort. Meanwhile, Miguel grabs Larue and tells him that he and Miguel should depart from the fight. Larue declines because he feels there’s more they can do.

We return to the battlefield with Sukuna and the Jujutsu Sorcerers. Yuji’s fighting Sukuna alone and putting up a decent effort. Larue aids Yuji with his powers. He uses them to hold Sukuna in place. Yuji delivers a Black Flash to Sukuna. The chapter closes with someone informing the audience that Yuji has awakened.
