Due to a long break, the series will not return in Japan until the beginning of July. This has left fans eagerly anticipating the continuation of Yuta and Sukuna’s fight.

Fortunately, there should be some initial spoilers for Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 263 later this week as we approach the release date. However, due to potential disruptions in the spoiler process for Gege Akutami’s original manga series, as well as others, it is possible that this process could be halted at any moment, including this week.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 262 Recap

Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 262 opened with Ryomen Sukuna and Yuta Okkotsu (in Satoru Gojo’s body) unleashing their Domain Expansions. Yuta successfully reduced the size of Unlimited Void’s barrier to that of a basketball, mirroring Gojo’s previous feat. The narrator then clarified that this was a strategic move to counter Sukuna’s Domain, which can only withstand attacks for a limited time of three minutes. Yuta also disclosed that he had undergone intensive training in body swapping with Gojo during the timeskip, showcasing his confidence in his abilities.

Meanwhile, Sukuna successfully removed the 99 second Binding Vow from Malevolent Shrine by reducing its effective range. This positioned them for their upcoming fight, with the Shrine now only encompassing the outer shell of Yuta’s Barrier. Yuta’s objective was to weaken Sukuna within three minutes so that he could no longer utilize Malevolent Shrine, while Sukuna aimed to destroy the Barrier before that time and expand the range of their Shrine to ultimately eliminate their opponents.

Yuta attempted to launch an attack, but Sukuna quickly countered with a combination of Domain Amplification and Domain Expansion. Sukuna clarified that Yuta and the others were unaware of this technique as he had only used it within Gojo’s Barrier, which was inaccessible to Mei Mei’s crows. The situation concluded with Rika taking center stage, as she had finally materialized and was weeping while cradling Yuta’s motionless form in her embrace.

What to anticipate in Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 263 (speculative)

The latest chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen, number 263, presents an intriguing development in the story as we witness the emergence of a fully manifested Rika. Despite the anticipation of a confrontation between Yuta and Sukuna’s Domain Expansions, the reappearance of Rika hints at a potential shift in focus towards her in the upcoming release.

Regardless of the situation, chapter 263 is expected to provide some insight into Yuta’s eventual outcome and establish the potential possibilities for his fate. Even if the majority of the chapter focuses on Rika, readers can anticipate a return to Yuta and Sukuna’s battle in the final pages of the upcoming release.
