Chapter 188 of Jujutsu Kaisen dives right to the heart of Hakari’s conflict with Kashimo, showcasing the strengths and weaknesses of both sorcerers. However, despite the chapter’s lack of language and focus on action, it serves as an explanation of the limitations of both Hakari’s Jackpot and Kashimo’s Cursed Technique. While Akutami’s first few chapters were enjoyable, this one promises to be a visual delight for fans. Jujutsu Kaisen 188, on the other hand, did not feature Kashimo’s Domain as many fans expected. However, his cursing method is executed flawlessly, so there is no place for dissatisfaction.
After learning that Kenjaku had contacted Kashimo 400 years prior with the offer of reincarnation, an older Kashimo agreed to it out of a desire to one day face Sukuna. Once again, Hakari struck gold, but Kashimo promised to murder him as soon as his four minutes and eleven seconds were up. Chapter 188 of Jujutsu Kaisen is named Tokyo Colony No.2 in the series ( Part 7).
Chapter 188 of Jujutsu Kaisen Summary
Chapter 188 of Jujutsu Kaisen opens with violent combat between Hakari and Kashimo. While Hakari’s head is nearly split in half, the manga’s readers learn an essential fact: Cursed energy emanates from the gut or stomach, while a sorcerer must reverse it by utilising their thoughts to undo the curse. The skull cannot be repaired once it has been cut or harmed beyond repair, hence the Reversed Cursed Technique cannot be used to cure it. If Kashimo doesn’t kill Hakari, she’ll at least make sure he doesn’t get away.
The endless cursed energy, not the reversed cursed method, is what allows Hakari to cure himself and disperse Kashimo’s electricity at the same time, therefore he does both through his nose. Kashimo, despite Hakari’s best efforts, refuses to give up on the struggle. As it turns out, instead of using Hakari’s body to absorb the positive energies, Kashimo left his staff across the ground. When Hakari comes in the way of him and the employees, Kashimo turns off the electricity just in time. Hakari is gravely injured when it slashes through him and rips off a piece of his abdomen. He is unable to repair himself since the Jackpot expires at that same time. Hakari, on the other hand, surprises Kashimo by casting his Domain a third time using the recovered Cursed method.
Even though chapter 188 of Jujutsu Kaisen delves more into Kashimo’s Cursed technique, its name remains a mystery. Kashimo, on the other hand, has proven himself to be a formidable sorcerer and is sure to possess other spells. Hakari, on the other hand, is unmatched in his area of expertise. Only because his Cursed Technique and Cursed Energy were restored just in time for the prize was his last-minute Domain Expansion conceivable.
However, Hakari’s contemporaries have always credited him with a certain amount of discipline and bravery for casting it despite his injuries. Hakari’s wound will cure itself if the Domain wins another prize. Hakari claimed to have completed 30 rounds before, therefore it shouldn’t be a problem to complete 3 expansions. Nevertheless, if this turn doesn’t result in a jackpot, Hakari will be in severe danger and can only win by external meddling, which will be an ideal opportunity to return Sukuna to the Culling Game.
