Jujutsu Kaisen Shares New Clues on Where Cursed Energy Comes From

Jujutsu Kaisen has cleared up some new details about where cursed energy comes from with the newest chapter of the series! Gege Akutami's original manga series can often be chaotic in terms of how it defines each of its power dynamics, and the abilities from each of the Jujutsu Sorcerers only make this even more chaotic since each of their powers can be very distinct and unique from one another. At the same time, as the battles heat up with the Culling Game arc of the series fans are getting to see more of these powers and abilities in action.  

But as the Culling Game fights continue in the Tokyo No. 2 Colony arc with the newest chapter of the series,  fans are now seeing Kinji Hakari doing his best to face off against Hajime Kashimo's fierce electric abilities. Given that he's one of the sorcerers who was revived in the new era thanks to Kenjaku's kicking off the tournament in full, fans also got some of his expertise in terms of how cursed energy and the Reverse Curse technique works that further emphasized how Satoru Gojo explained in earlier in the series.

Chapter 188 of Jujutsu Kaisen continues the fight between Hakari and Kashimo, and Hakari's abilities have made him temporarily unkillable thanks to his successful double use of his Domain Expansion and the bonuses he gets that follow. But Kashimo is able to counter each of Hakari's strikes regardless, and notes how his Reverse Cursed technique continues to heal him. He then confirms that Gojo said previously about how Cursed Energy comes from "the gut," but also notes that Reverse Cursed technique actually comes from the brain. 

Kashimo explains that you need to use your head to direct the Reverse Curse technique, and although Hakari is able to make his way through the fight thus far, it's clear that it's a fight that helps to further help fans of the series understand how all of these power dynamics and energy works in the Jujutsu Sorcery world. It's one crucial step in helping to figure out the smaller details as a whole.
