JJK Chapter 241 Spoilers

On the verge of being killed by Kenjaku, Takaba plunges into the depths of his past, remembering the many pitfalls he ran into during his comedic career. Eventually, he flashed all the back to his childhood, causing him to remember that he became a comedian to connect with other people and realize that he had become so afraid of people seeing his true self that he hid it behind his current screwball persona.

Reinvigorated by this revelation, Takaba’s reality-warping Cursed Technique returns in full force, putting Kenjkau on the defense. Takaba also revealed the full magnitude of his abilities by altering Kenjaku’s thoughts, flustering the ancient sorcerer.

What Might Happen in JJK Chapter 242

While it’s unlikely that Takaba will end up dealing the finishing blow on Kenjaku, his renewed confidence could give him the strength to inflict severe damage to the sorcerer by messing with his head. Even if Takaba does not survive this encounter, he might succeed in softening Kenjaku up for his next opponent.
