Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 249 spoilers finally confirm the death eagerly awaited by fans. We tell you who is preparing to say goodbye to us in the rest of the manga.
No man’s land is filling up with more and more dead people, the battle against Jujutsu Kaisen ‘s most powerful enemies going on for months now. If the exorcists continue their complicated plan to defeat the king of plagues, the price to pay remains very high.
Hiromi sacrificed himself to allow Yuji to strike Sukuna with his Executioner’s Sword. But in vain, because the object missed its target and broke. And when the hero found himself in a bad position, it was Yuta who arrived, restoring balance in a deadly fight. And, in passing, provoking the fascination of the king of plagues for Rika, nicknamed queen of plagues.
But Sukuna isn’t the only villain in Jujutsu Kaisen. Kenjaku, another great enemy of humanity, has been forgotten in recent times. However, he had fallen into Takaba’s trap, providing a striking opportunity for Yuta. And even when decapitated, the villain was still able to speak.
Is Kenjaku’s death finally confirmed in Jujutsu Kaisen?
In Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 243, Takaba dies after creating a distraction for Yuta, who then punches Kenjaku. Gojo Satoru ‘s former student doesn’t hesitate for a second, cutting off the snake’s head and freeing Suguru Geto’s body from its grip. But as the chapter ended with the victory of the young exorcist, Kenjaku assured that his “will” would find an heir.
The following chapters showed us the development – and execution – of Yuji and Hirumi Higuruma’s plan against Sukuna. Everything then continued until Yuta’s arrival in no man’s land… and according to the spoilers for chapter 249, already announced as shocking by its editor, readers should finally learn what happened after that Kenjaku has lost his mind.
In a brief flashback, we learn that plagues are out of control: Yuta leaves Rika to take care of them. However, Kenjaku is still alive, and his severed head is flying through the air. His plan to merge humans with Tengen now rests on Megumi. Because the villain changes the rules of the Murderous Hunt by using Kogane.
Kenjaku reveals that he already has a backup plan… until Yuta slices his head off again, likely killing him for good. The exorcist indeed brutally cuts his face, not giving the villain the chance to continue speaking. It must be said that unlike the others, Yuta has a personal score to settle with Kenjaku.
The young man always blamed himself for not killing Suguru Geto back then, which forced Satoru Gojo to kill his best friend himself. After Kenjaku possessed Geto’s body, Gojo vowed to ensure his friend rest in peace by ridding him of the parasite. Yuta, for his part, vowed to take care of it himself to prevent his teacher from killing his friend again – or at least his body.
Even though Satoru Gojo is now dead, Yuta’s promise still stands. In the next chapter, the S-class exorcist will blame himself for not having helped the exorcists fighting against Sukuna: he had to concentrate on Kenjaku.
