Sukuna VS Rika: Spoilers
Chapter 249 of Jujutsu Kaisen follows Sukuna’s intense clash with Yuji whereby the aftermath could expose the impacts of Higuruma’s death and its retrieval by Ui Ui and Kirara.
Sukuna’s increased self-awareness of his changing feelings could define his discourse with Yuji. Additionally, it is an important chapter for Yuji as this will be the moment his reverse cursed technique is unveiled to all.
This chapter is expected to look closely into Yuta and Rika’s strategies against Sukuna-these are very hard. In that regard, Rika who is the Queen of Curses taking part in the fight next to Yuta multiplies their combined powers and different cursed techniques which makes their contest more complicated. The confrontation should not only be a power struggle but also make an emphasis on strategy.
Consequently, we anticipate Yuta launching a strike on Sukuna, perhaps illuminated by a small scene reflecting his breakup with Kenjaku. Similarly, this chapter focuses on Sukuna countering Rika as well as regrouping between Yuta, Yuji, and Yuta to plan for a synchronized offensive. This battle between Sukuna and Rika would be fierce thus exposing her strong points while revealing the dynamic relationship between the King and Queen of Curses.
Chapter 248 Recap
In Chapter 248 of Jujutsu Kaisen, Yuji employs the Sword that Kills Demons against Sukuna, however it breaks into pieces in his hands. Annoyed by how Yuji kept getting up after every hit, Sukuna figures out that Kirara and Ui Ui are picking Higuruma’s corpse back to Shoko Ieiri from the battlefield.
To Sukuna’s astonishment, he realizes that Yuji has mastered the Reversed Cursed Technique which enables him to heal himself.
Sukuna then reflects on his rage and confirms the fighting ability of the opponent. Later in the chapter Yuta Okkotsu enters the battle scene claiming he is sorry for coming late.
Delighted by Yuta’s appearance, Sukuna does not hide his intention of facing him as he is the only person who can defeat him among sorcerers. He also adds by telling Yuta that should he fail to kill him all those dear to him will die.
The final part of this chapter sees Sukuna declaring he would like to wipe out all the sorcerers and players participating in the culling game. Yuta and Sukuna had gotten into an intense fight but this fight was going to be between the King of curses and the Queen of curses. So far Yuta seems to be the only one who has the potential to take down Sukuna.
