RECAP: Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 228 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 229

The fight continues to rage in Chapter 228. Gojo pulls an impressive domain trick enclosing himself and Sukuna in a tiny barrier smaller than a basketball. Sukuna uses his external attacks to break down the barrier, while Gojo prevents him from maintaining his domain. It appears to be a deadlock, but Sukuna’s abilities suggest he too can use the reverse cursed technique to restore his burnt-out ones.

It’s in pondering the reasons why Sukuna doesn’t go offensive with his Ten Shadows that Gojo realizes Sukuna may have planned. It’s here, at the close of the chapter that we see him start to falter, his face drooping and developing a nosebleed. It suggests he’s running out of steam fast to the alarm of the community. We’ll just have to wait for the release of Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 229 to find out how it goes from here!
