With the upcoming release date of Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 241, we’re seeing a surprisingly interesting battle break out. The strange, superhero-garment-clad comedian is surprisingly potent, but is he able to contend with the likes of Kenjaku?

The fans are certainly entertained, or at least bemused by this interlude. But people are also wondering, when do we get back to the Sukuna fight?

In Chapter 240, Fumihiko matches wits with Kenjaku, but it turns out Kenjaku’s got a twisted sense of humor.

RECAP: JJK Chapter 240

To nobody’s surprise, this was not the moment where Kenjaku met a massive upset and was defeated by a half-naked comedian whose ‘cursed objects’ could pop out of his costume without warning. It did, however, have superb panels including one particular one where Fumihiko’s ability to manifest reality, creating objects to make a mockery of Kenjaku and, of all things, a Yu-Gi-Oh! reference.

He can subdue and even fluster Kenjaku, but by the end, Kenjaku captures the upper hand by being able to recognize just how few of his opponent’s jokes are funny. In the final panels, as Fumihiko finds a corpse in the woods while being knocked around by Kenjaku and losing a staring contest (this chapter got weird) things are looking grim.

What to Expect in JJK Chapter 241

Fumihiko Takaba is not long for this world, although he could reassert his sense of purpose and passion in style before bowing out as another casualty of the Culling Game. Additionally, we’ve still yet to see how the Sukuna fight is going, and I for one would love to see that concluded.
