On October 31, 2018, things went very differently in the fictional Tokyo of Jujutsu Kaisen. Epic fights concluded, while one of the most iconic arcs of the series entered full swing, the Shibuya Incident. The series’ characters, and in many ways, the viewers, won’t come out of this one the same. With non-sorcerer humans trapped inside the barrier, or curtain, surrounding Shibuya, our heroes find themselves issued with a challenge. Get ready for what comes next with the release date of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 8!

In the latest episode, Kokichi’s deadly assault dazzles the viewers, with a sinister development on the horizon.

RECAP: Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 7 Spoilers and What to Expect in Episode 8

Kokichi continues his insanely cool battle with Mahito. While it seems like he’ll pull through, those who read the manga knew what was coming. That didn’t come without some incredible moments where the anime channeled some serious Gurren Lagann and Neon Genesis Evangelion homages. The injuries he inflicted on Mahito, although massive, weren’t enough to put him down, and sadly Kokichi died here.

A week later, the curtain drops over Shibuya, initiating the deadly arc in its entirety. The challenge issued is largely for Gojo, who enters and will soon encounter Jogo, Hanami, and more. You’ll find that in the coming episodes, even more characters won’t be coming out alive.
