Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 216 Spoilers

Kenjaku and Uraume are approaching the scene. Meanwhile, Yuji Itadori and Maki Zenin fight Sukuna, who has taken over Megumi Fushigiro’s body. Sukuna, the deadly cursed spirit, finds resistance from his host body while trying to fight Yuji, as Megumi lowers his body’s cursed energy output when his friends are threatened.

Despite these limitations, Uraume makes it to the scene and Yuji is incapacitated after their Frost Calm attack. Upon leaving, they remark on Yuji who feebly tries to pursue them. However, their use of the Harima Statue phrase is debated by fans.

This is supposedly meant instead to allude to Yuji’s lineage, a possible backstory reveal, and his secret family history. With that in consideration, fans on Reddit have taken to predicting what lies ahead in the aftermath of this fight, with possible future reveals of Yuji’s history. They discuss possible ancestors who could have opposed Sukuna, poking fun at its execution.

The mistranslation angle is interesting, alluding to how the original translation refers to him and a connection to somebody from Harima. For now, fans will have to wait to see if these predictions come true. But Jujutsu Kaisen will release on Sunday, March 12, 2023, so keep your eyes peeled for the latest update!
