Jujutsu Kaisen episode 16 aired today, and we got see some more awesome action! First off, more besto frendos with Toudou teaching Yuuji how to use his technique. It’s unclear whether their hands touching triggered some Yuuji’s latent power or if he’s just crazy, but we got to see some more of the imaginary backstory! Really hope they really become friends after this.
However, Panda took the show after the opening. We got to see him fight Mecha Kirito and showcase his Gorilla form. There seems to be another one, though he didn’t get to debut it this time since he got unluckily shot right through its core. Still, the panda seems badass and emotionally very stable, so it’s refreshing watching its scenes! Not to mention it even channeled its inner Jotaro for a moment:
Was sad seeing Mechamaru’s situation, though he seems to have learned a valuable lesson. The episode ended with Maki and Miwa, 2 best girls and has set up multiple fronts to look forward to in the next episode!
Although Yuji Itadori looks like your average teenager, his immense physical strength is something to behold! Every sports club wants him to join, but Itadori would rather hang out with the school outcasts in the Occult Research Club. One day, the club manages to get their hands on a sealed cursed object. Little do they know the terror they’ll unleash when they break the seal…
The manga, written and illustrated by Akutami Gege, recently surpassed 20 million circulating copies (also including digital release)! That meant it doubled sold copies in about 2 months, but then it sold 5 more million in just 2 weeks! Now it’s over 25 million!! It has been serialized since March 2018, which is a pretty short amount of time for such a big number. It will likely grow even more alongside the anime adaptation too.
