Fluctuations, Part 2
Episode 15 of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 begins with Toji exiting Megumi’s domain’s hole, swiping Maki’s nunchucks, and walking toward Dagon while the narrator explains how he’s functioning as Ogami’s grandson’s vessel after her death. Toji fights Dagon, impressing Maki and the others with his feats. After exorcising Dagon and freeing everyone from his domain, Toji forces Megumi somewhere and confronts him. Meanwhile, Jogo arrives, bids farewell to Dagon, and sends Nanami, Naobito, and Maki ablaze.
Suddenly, Jogo senses one of Sukuna’s fingers elsewhere as we cut to two females next to Yuji’s unconscious body. The two girls feed Yuji one of Sukuna’s fingers. Jogo arrives on the scene and sets them ablaze. Jogo feeds Yuji 10 Sukuna fingers, meaning Yuji consumed over 15 in total. Jogo notices the girls survived his attack. Before he can hurt them further, Sukuna awakens from Yuji’s body, causing him to back off and kneel before him. Sukuna approaches the trio and asks the girls what they want from him.
They ask him to free Suguru from his doppelganger’s control. The girls say if he can accomplish this task, they’ll point him in the direction of another one of his fingers. Sukuna causes one of the girls named Mimiko’s head to explode. He doesn’t like that they tried ordering him around. He murders the other girl and asks Jogo what he wants. Jogo says he only wants to fully revive Sukuna and suggests he make a Binding Vow with Yuji before he returns that’ll grant him dominance over him.
Sukuna says he has other plans. However, to thank him for the fingers, Sukuna says if Jogo can hit him once, he’ll work for him and his buddies. At the same time, he’ll focus on killing Shibuya’s humans except one. The episode closes with Jogo accepting the deal.
The Episode Review
The thrills continue to build in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2. This episode envelops audiences in an exhilarating atmosphere full of non-stop action and dread. From the elongated battle between Dagon and Toji to Sukuna’s awakening, viewers are probably excited to see how things will progress in the next few chapters ahead.
The Toji and Dagon battle looked astonishing and Mappa continues to showcase their passion for this project with each fight that occurs in this season. With Dagon defeated, many will be curious to see how Megumi will react to seeing his father after so many years. At the same time, the Jogo scene involving Nanami, Maki, and Naobito was a bit awkward.
While these three were taken by surprise, it’s strange to see Jogo successfully take each of them down without issue. It was akin to someone at a grocery store grabbing necessities to complete their lists. Essentially, the scene carried little to no impact and felt too convenient. Fortunately, this scene was followed up with a rousing scenario involving Sukuna, Jogo, and the two girls.
Mappa exceptionally brought out Sukuna’s dominance over the three through stellar camera work and Sukuna’s actor deserves praise for elevating the scene further with their portrayal of him during the whole debacle. It goes to show viewers why he’s the “King of the Curses.” Overall, this was a fun episode with nice action and atmosphere. I’m interested to see what happened to our burned trio, what’ll happen between Megumi and Toji, and how things will turn out between Jogo and Sukuna.
