Megumi, Yuji, Sukuna, and Gojo from Jujutsu Kaisen.

Saving Gojo is getting more difficult for Yuji and Megumi

The following article contains spoilers for Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 199 “The Offended Names” by Gigi Akutami, John Wehrey, and Snir Aharon, available in English from Viz Media.

After Naoya is defeated by Maki and her allies, Jujutsu Kisen Focus returns to Yuji and Megumi. The two friends are in a hotel room accompanied by Hana Kurusu, which is not surprising since Megumi is found unconscious after his fight. It seems that Takaba decided to hold on to them after he encounters Yuji, before they discover Hana with Megumi.

Finding Hana Kurusu, or “the Angel”, was one of their main goals in getting into the Culling game, so she was fortunate that she found Megumi and decided to take him along. The Cursed Man’s style negates the other Cursed Styles, including barricades and seals. In other words, she has the power to free Gojo from the prison kingdom. Fortunately for Yuji and Megumi, the owners are not averse to helping them, but there is a problem.

Yuji gives Megumi the good news that Hakari has managed to earn 100 points. Besides Yuta’s 190 points, and those earned by Takaba’s and Hana, they have 359 points overall. This means that they have the amount they need to help Tsumiki leave the Culling game. Megumi is relieved to hear that, but before he gets his hopes up too high, he confirms if they can actually use Takaba and Hana’s points.

Takaba is happy to give them his points because he can now survive without being killed, due to the change of Yuji’s rule. Hana simply has no use for her points, so she has no problem letting go of them. Megumi finally asked Hana if she was the angel they were looking for, and that’s where things get so much fun. A mouth appears on the side of Hana’s face, just as Sukuna and Yuji sometimes do, and he responds, emphasizing that they are the angel.

The angel is an incarnated wizard residing in Hana as their vessel. It’s a rare case, where most incarnated witches suppress the original ship owner. This may happen intentionally or unconsciously. This is contrary to the beliefs of the angel which they consider to be God’s laws. Hence, they live in symbiosis with Hana and their goal is to eliminate all players who have been reincarnated.

Finding common ground with Sukuna and Angel

Megumi tells Angel that they hope to use their cursed technique to remove the seal from the prison world, and Angel says they can do so. However, Angel asks for their help with something first. Yuji and Megumi will need their help in killing a certain incarnated wizard they only refer to as shame, and then they will deal with the prison kingdom without hesitation. This seems simple enough, until Yuji is suddenly brought into Sukuna’s mental realm.

The King of Curses reveals that he is called Shame. This presents several problems for Yuji and Megumi, including how difficult it is to kill Sukuna without Gojo. Of course, they could kill Yuji and that could kill Sukuna as well, but they didn’t know for sure. It’s possible that Yuji would be willing to sacrifice himself and Megumi would almost certainly oppose that. It seems there will be a heavy price to pay for whatever they decide to do.
