Jujutsu Kaisen released Episode 18 this Friday, and it took a sudden turn to a way more serious situation. It started off with a cool fight between Megumi and Kamo. The Kyoto 1st year can manipulate blood, and it made for some really cool scenes as he pushed Megumi get more serious too. Though he still didn’t get to show off, it seemed like he had the upper hand, and he showed off his elephant curse which was pretty cool.
Unfortunately, they were interrupted as the Special Grades infiltrated and instantly deleted all the other curses. There was apparently a strong one planted by the old headmaster, but even that was irrelevant and Toge just saw it being beheaded when the reverse-talking curse arrived. A new villain also appeared, and he managed to set up a barrier to keep Gojo locked in. It feels like they have a plan, and I’m already scared for the strongest sorcerer! The way he messes with the headmaster is priceless though:
Though unexpectedly, Gramps rocks an electric guitar, and I’m also excited to see his curse technique with it.
The episode was great, but it feels like the next one will be the real action. This one didn’t really show Yuuji or most of the Tokyo members, but the preview does feature more of them and Mahito is there as well. Geto might be nearby too! The title of episode 19 is “Black Flash”, and it will premiere on February 20.
If you enjoyed episode 18, you can vote Jujutsu Kaisen as the best show on our weekly poll! And if you haven’t started it yet, the story goes:
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 30 million circulating copies (also including digital release)! 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.
