As if the confiscation of his cursed energy wasn’t enough, Yuji had to go and make things even harder for himself. Chapter 165 of Jujutsu Kaisen just poured cold water on all of Yuji’s calculations.
The case against him isn’t about a minor entering a parlor anymore, but for the mass murder at Shibuya. So, what is an appropriate punishment for mass murder? The death penalty, of course.
Yuji’s punishment went from confiscation to the death penalty, and it’s high time that he gets a standing ovation for getting himself into such situations.
As if things couldn’t get any worse, he even admitted to the killings. Even Higuruma was surprised when Yuji confessed to the crime.
Now that the death penalty has been announced, will the domain take up some new measures instead of Higuruma’s attacks? Or is Higuruma in charge of killing Yuji?
Yuji’s only benefit from the retrial was being saved from Higuruma’s continuous attacks.
He’s begun to understand how the domain expansion works. If he plays his cards right he might be able to avoid judgment the next time.
Is there any way that the mass murder could be pinned on Sukuna? Or was that hope gone with the wind as soon as Yuji confessed? It was truly heartbreaking to see Yuji holding himself responsible for Sukuna’s crimes.
I wonder how many times Yuji will get sentenced to death in this manga. Higuruma’s expression might have been either due to shock or sympathy. Is there any chance that this law-crazy unlawful dude will help Itadori?
If Judgeman and trials are Higuruma’s power, then can they be turned against him? If so, then Yuji might have a chance to reverse his position.
