Alright, we know it’s a sensitive topic for the super fans, but it has to be said: Itadori and Megumi will be enemies. That is probably the single most heartbreaking sentence of the century, but Jujutsu Kaisen’s Culling Game Arc just proves to be just as hurtful as Shibuya, if not, more.
The Culling Game arc of Jujutsu Kaisen has reached a significant turning point, and the latest episode of the series has finally seen Sukuna activate his Binding Vow with Yuji Itadori at the worst possible time!
Not only did Yuji and the others’ team eventually gain enough points to liberate Megumi’s sister Tsumiki from the terrible competition, but they also had a method to rescue Satoru Gojo from the Prison Realm with the assistance of Hana Kurusu. But things quickly went south as now it’s clear that the Culling Game troubles are far from over.
For those who don’t remember the Binding Vow, it was a vow Itadori and Sukuna made while they were both inside Sukuna’s realm.
When Yuji and Sukuna chose to make their Binding Vow, Sukuna lay forth the parameters of their agreement after defeating Yuji in a brief fight. He agreed to assist Yuji to survive his death in exchange for the ability to control Yuji’s body for a minute using a unique code word (“Enchain”). Yuji agreed to this because it meant Sukuna wouldn’t be able to hurt anyone when he took control but was forced to abandon the pledge after Sukuna beat him.
This occurs in Chapter 212 of the story when it becomes clearer than ever that Sukuna has been longing for Megumi Fushiguro. Sukuna made his move on Megumi and leveraged a gap in their binding vow (that Yuji may in reality kill himself) and gained control of him totally after taking an interest in him at the beginning of the series and ensuring that no harm came to him throughout the events of the Shibuya Incident.
Now that Sukuna finally got what he wanted, what kind of trouble do you think will befall on the characters of Jujutsu Kaisen? Let us know below!
