Last week, the unofficial Twitter account of Jujutsu Kaisen Manga announced that this week’s chapter would be on a hiatus. Five days later, the news was stamped official by the official website of Viz Media. However, the reason for the abrupt break is still unclear. Fans look forward to knowing more about the hiatus. So, Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 162 is due a weekend after next, and it will probably include some of the most epic action sequences of the manga so far. So, here is all you need to know about the chapter.
In the forthcoming chapter, Yuuji Itadori will continue to fight Hanyu. In the Culling Games, multiple fighters have been stationed within the barrier to stop the players from reaching the end. Amai and Hanyu are the cursed sorcerers who are charged to stop Yuuji. Thus, the Jujutsu High student will give in his all to stop the two from taking him down.
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 162: Plot Details
The forthcoming chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen will continue the first round of the Culling games. On the one hand, Megumi has joined hands with one of the players named Remi. On the other hand, Megumi knows that Remi has competed in the tournament for many years. However, she never won a single match because of her team. Thus, this time she is hopeful of winning as Megumi is her knight. Later, the chapter will focus on the battle between Yuuji and Hanyu.
After getting signaled by Amai, Hanyu began to attack the first player that entered through the barrier. Yuuji will notice that Amai is the one giving all the instructions to Hanyu. Thus, he will try to bypass Yuuji and go for the Amai. This will result in a two-way battle. Once Yuuji gets overwhelmed in the match, fans can expect to see the arrival of Sukuna in the battle. Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 162 will also feature more details about Remi’s cursed technique.
Previous Chapter Recap!
In the 161st chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen, the first round of the Culling games finally commenced. Yuuji and Megumi scanned the arena and understood the positioning of all the players. Amai was standing at the edge of the arena to signal the arrival of any player. Hanyu was another woman stationed at the entrance. As Yuuji and Megumi enter the barrier, they are transported to two different areas at once. Yuuji noticed that Amai signaled Hanyu to commence the attack and as she did.
On the other hand, Fushiguro successfully managed to take down the woman who was stationed to attack him. Here, Megumi also fought one of the trained Jujutsu. He asked his opponent if she knew anything about Higuruma. At the mention of this name, she immediately stopped and asked to tell him everything if he agreed to become her knight. The chapter ended with the lady introducing herself as Remi.
