In this article, we explore chapter 242 of the Jujutsu Kaisen, a chapter marked by humorous elements and fight scenes between the main characters, Kenjaku and Takaba.
Introduction to the Chapter 242 of Jujutsu Kaisen
Chapter 242, entitled « Stupid Survivor Rise Up », picks up immediately after the events of the previous chapter. This chapter is distinguished by its humorous tone and use of absurd scenarios, which is a departure from the previous chapters.
Kenjaku summons a special-grade curse, named Akuro or Otqué, to use against Takaba. However, this curse is quickly crushed by the truck Takaba invokes, a bizarre and unexpected manifestation that defies logic.
Transformation and humor
Kenjaku then transforms into a policeman and accuses Takaba of drunk driving. This scene, marked by absurdity, shows Kenjaku asking Takaba to blow into a bag, which miraculously transforms into a goldfish. This part of the chapter is highly humorous.
Games and brainstorming
The two characters then play rock-leaf-scissors, followed by a quiz. These scenes add a light, playful dimension to the chapter. We also discover that Takaba’s technique is not only a materialization of his imagination, but also affects that of his opponent.
Absurd scenes and combat
The chapter continues with absurd scenes, including a moment when Takaba and Kenjaku are transformed into doctors trying to save the goldfish. Later, they play with water like children, in stark contrast to the nature of their battle.
Chapter completion and conclusion
Towards the end, Kenjaku realizes that he’s accumulating damage as the fight goes on, while Takaba seems unaffected. Kenjaku then decides to invite Takaba to a final battle, staging a transition to a more serious fight. The chapter ends with the announcement that there will be no break the following week, leaving readers to await the outcome of this battle.
This chapter marks a notable departure in the tone of the series, focusing more on humor and the absurd. While this approach may disappoint some fans in search of a more serious narrative, it brings a refreshing lightness and originality to the series.
