Jujutsu Kaisen’s chapter 157 starts with Yuji flying out the door. It is more like he is flung so hard that he crashes outside.
Of course, the perpetrator follows soon after, and it’s Hakari who seems quite pissed off.
Fans have been speculating about whether Yuji will be joining Hakari’s fight club, but it looks like he is gonna get beaten to a pulp first.
Continuing from chapter 156, Yuji has chosen to hold back and take all the hits to convince Hakari to help them. Hakari, on the other hand, gets even more mad at this attitude.
The fact that Yuji came to ask for his help simply because someone else asked him to makes him disgruntled. He claims that Yuji has a lack of “fever” in him.
This scene is almost reminiscent of when Yuji was going to take admission in Jujutsu High and got his butt kicked because he said he was there because of his grandfather’s last wish.
When Yuji keeps standing even after taking three hits from Hakari and asks him his purpose, he is accepted as someone who has “fever.”
After a bit of coaxing from Kirara, Hakari is ready to listen to them. Hakari and Kirara will consider the request now, but we can be sure that they will agree to help their juniors.
With Yuji, Megumi, Yuta, Maki, Hakari, and Kirara working together, the team is bound to be crazy strong. Yet, don’t get your hopes too high as Akutami sensei might just introduce another sorcerer who can surpass their team.
Even without using his cursed technique, Hakari put Yuji in a pretty bad shape with just three hits. His recruitment is bound to be a major step towards the upcoming culling games.
