Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 233 Spoilers
The chapter starts where it left off, and everyone is shocked. Yuji is still hopeful and says Gojo can still heal himself. As Mahoraga has only adapted to his infinity, it’s still on equal footing with Gojo, according to Yuji.
The editor’s comment at the start of that chapter says, “The hands of the devil have finally connected. Gojo is in an overwhelming predicament”.
Shoko is very stressed and has already consumed a lot of cigarettes. She mentions that Gojo’s healing speed is getting slower.
According to her, as Gojo just used RED, he should still be capable of using the reverse cursed technique. Although the output is decreasing, it should be the same for Sukuna.
The narrator says that everyone thought Gojo might lose. Even Gojo himself thought so.
When Gojo thinks about when was the last time he felt like that, only one comes to mind, Toji Fushiguro.
The narrator then continues that even though the signs of Gojo losing are coming up, something else is swelling up in Gojo.
It’s Satisfaction. The loneliness that comes from being the strongest is filling him up now.
Satoru quickly punches Mahoraga in the face, choking Mahoraga. Gojo starts the chants to restore his lowered output and proceeds to blast the Cursed Technique Reversal: RED.
Unfortunately, Sukuna gains consciousness and activates Megumi’s rabbit escape technique. Gojo still blasts RED but Mahoraga escapes.
Gojo realizes that Sukuna is protecting Mahoraga and using it for offense. Sukuna then throws a fire extinguisher toward Gojo and blasts it, creating a smokescreen.
Meanwhile, Mahoraha prepares to attack from above. Sukuna then makes a familiar posture and blasts a technique. Choso recognizes it as Piercing Blood.
Just as Gojo defends Mahoraga, Sukuna’s attack lands on Gojo and wounds him. This makes Gojo realize that Sukuna is not defending Mahoraga. The moment Mahoraga vanishes Gojo’s infinity, Sukuna attacks him.
Gojo also complains about how Sukuna is able to use Shikigami’s abilities without even having to summon them. It’s 2 vs. 1, Gojo thinks.
The previous attack was not Piercing Blood but rather Max Elephant’s Water Shoot technique, but in a Piercing Blood way.
Gojo understands why Sukuna started using Shikigami, is because he got more resources, and Mahoraga has adapted to Infinity.
Adapting to RED will take more time compared to BLUE.
Sukuna interrupts Gojo’s inner monologue, asking not to misunderstand as it is not 2v1.
He then chants, “Chimera Beast,” and a new Shikigami emerges, a fusion between Neu and Totality.
Sukuna then continues by saying, It is 3 vs. 1.
Gojo makes fun of Sukuna, saying he looks like a lost kid with those two giants around.
Everyone jumps on Gojo. He dodges the new Shikigami and Mahoraga’s attacks, but Sukuna pops out of Gojo’s shadow and shoots water just like he did before.
Gojo gets behind Mahoraga and blasts RED but the damage is weak. Gojo thinks he now has only one technique to demolish Mahoraga in one shot.
He further thinks that the charge is big, and Sukuna will be vigilant about it. But he has no choice, he has to use the Unlimited HOLLOW TECHNIQUE!
The chapter ends with the editor’s comment, “A secret plan behind the smile”, most likely referring to Gojo.
The manga will not take any breaks next week.
You can read the chapter when it officially comes out on Viz Media’s official website.
