To keep Sukuna’s long-serving henchperson, Uraume, from interfering with their master’s trial, Kinji Hakari battles the ice-wielding Curse User with his luck-based Cursed Technique. Powerful sorcerers like Yuta Okkutsu have commented about Hakari’s near-unrivaled strength, and the battle between him and Uraume proves that he is one of the current generation’s strongest jujutsu sorcerers.

While that’s happening, Sukuna’s trial within Higuruma’s Domain commences. With a sheet of paper describing the terms and conditions of Sukuna’s pact with Yuji Itadori, Higuruma makes a compelling opening argument against the King of Curses. Sukuna, conversely, demands that they get the trial over with, offering nothing in his defense.

Judgeman quickly finds Sukuna guilty of mass murder, which is supposed to result in Sukuna’s Cursed Energy output being suppressed so Higuruma can kill him with the mighty Executioner’s Blade. Unfortunately, it’s revealed that Judgeman’s suppression was only applied to Sukuna’s Cursed Weapon, Kamutoke, leaving the King of Curses free to use his devastating Cursed Technique in the fight to come.
