The fate of Hiromi Higuruma may have been decided in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 247. However, while the fallen defense attorney may not have stood a chance against the King of Surces, his final act may have given Yuji Itadori everything he needed to take Sukuna down for good.

Where to Read Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 247

Jujutsu Kaisen is available on several websites, and the most accessible and user-friendly is Viz Media. Unfortunately, unless you pay for a premium subscription, you’ll be limited in the number of chapters you can read. Another safe option is Manga Plus to avoid buying a subscription.

Recognizing Higuruma as his most pressing threat, Sukuna targets the defense attorney with everything he’s got. When Yuji intervenes, Sukuna unleashes a devastating new attack: Scales of the Dragon Recoil: Twin Meteors, a mockery of Satoru Gojo‘s signature move, Hollow Technique: Purple. As the dust settles, we’re shown a gruesome full-page panel of a bloody, one-armed Higuruma struggling to stand.

Fortunately, a last-minute save by Choso gives Higuruma a chance to stab one of Sukuna’s hands with the Executioner’s Balde. Unfortunately, Sukuna cancels out the attack by preemptively severing his arm. He then hits Higuruma point-blank with Dismantle, carving the lawyer to ribbons.

However, before he falls in a manner entirely similar to Kento Nanami, Higuruma tosses the Executioner’s Blade to Yuji. Adamantly declaring that he’s a Jujutsu Sorcerer, Sukuna’s former vessel plunges the Executioner’s Blade into the King of Curses back, ending the chapter.
