Now that the team is complete and ready to participate in the Culling Game, they are targeting one of two players who have already collected over 100 points. From what it looks like from Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 159, it is going to be Ace Attorney Hiromi Higuruma.
Initially, everyone thought Higuruma was going to be an experienced sorcerer on a ruthless killing spree. It was a fair assumption considering that Hajime Kashimo, the other sorcerer with 100 points, is somehow related to Sukuna and seemed to fit that description.
Surprisingly, Higuruma is quite the opposite. He is a public defense lawyer who wants to stand up for what is right.
In this chapter, we see him defending an innocent guy who is guilty in the public’s opinion and is wrongly convicted of the crime. Tired of all the injustices in the legal system, he decides to pull out his cursed technique.
His cursed technique seems to be a rather grim take on the idea of Lady Justice. The creature is holding the scales while his eyes are sewn shut. The gavel in his hand is also part of the technique because lawyers are not supposed to have those.
Maybe he passes some judgment of sorts that might result in the target’s death under certain conditions, or he just balances out the cursed technique in a particular area like Damnatio Kira from Black Clover.
It is difficult to see how he has killed so many people to gain over 100 points, given his character. He might have decided to pass on judgments on criminals himself and killed 102 of them along with some evil sorcerers.
The good thing though, is that he seems to be a person with good intentions. Maybe Yuji and the team will be able to convince him to help them without any major confrontation.
