Sukuna: Not a Fraud in Jujutsu Kaisen, According to Akutami’s Latest Comment

The Jujutsu Kaisen Exhibition continues to generate excitement among fans with exclusive insights from the author, Gege Akutami. In yet another comment, Akutami has confirmed that the final antagonist of the series is among the strongest, if not the strongest character.

The discussion revolved around the monumental showdown between Gojo Satoru and Ryomen Sukuna, which was considered one of the most intense fights in the series. Specifically, the author was questioned about Gojo’s opening move in the battle, known as the Hollow Purple.

The author emphasized that this move was crucial in the fight, as there were no restrictions and both fighters were solely focused on victory. This highlighted Gojo’s preference for using one technique, while Sukuna utilized all of his techniques, including those of Megumi’s. Consequently, Sukuna’s diverse approach led to his triumph in the battle.

This article includes the author’s opinion and may reveal potential spoilers from the Jujutsu Kaisen manga series.

Despite being one of the most powerful sorcerers, Ryomen Sukuna is known as the ultimate antagonist in Jujutsu Kaisen. He made his first appearance in the series’ opening chapter/episode, where he possessed the body of Itadori Yuji, the main protagonist.

During the Culling Game arc, several chapters later, Sukuna took control of Megumi Fushigoro as his new host. This occurred after he bathed in cursed energy and coincided with the release of Gojo Satoru from Prism Realm. The Honored One then immediately challenged the King of Curses, resulting in a fierce battle in Shinjuku, Japan.

Despite the passage of time since the release of this chapter, there were still lingering questions from fans that they wanted the writer to address. At the recent Jujutsu Kaisen Exhibition, Gege Akutami bravely tackled these spicy inquiries from devoted fans.

During the battle of the strongest, there was a question about Gojo Satoru’s starting move, specifically about Hollow Purple being amplified to 200%. The author’s response was quite intriguing, as they stated:

“Initially, it would seem odd to me to have the opponents face off at the time when the battle starts, as the basic idea of this battle is that there are no rules here and it itself inherently lays down the point about dishonesty.”

Gojo’s 200% Hollow Purple is the defining factor in the battle, allowing the fighters to use any means necessary without any rules. To make a bold statement, Gojo began the fight by obliterating one of Sukuna’s hands in an attempt to intimidate him.

Upon further examination, Gege’s remarks could also be interpreted as a tribute to Ryomen Sukuna for bravely facing the Honored One in a fierce battle, despite being in a newly acquired body.

The King of Curses did not limit himself to just one power of his cursed technique, unlike Gojo Satoru who primarily relied on amplifying Hollow Purple during the battle. In addition to using the Ten Shadow Technique, Sukuna also created a new shikigami named Agito by combining various shikigami.

Additionally, he deliberately used Megumi’s cursed technique, the Ten Shadow Technique, to torture his friend and kill his sister while inhabiting the sorcerer’s body. This strategic move may have been the key to his victory in the battle against Gojo Satoru, ultimately crushing any hope of triumph for the other fighters.
