Jujutsu Kaisen showed off a sneaky new use of Megumi Fushiguro's Cursed Techniques with the newest chapter of the series! Series creator Gege Akutami is now back in full swing with the original manga series following a lengthy hiatus, and the series is continuing through the preparations Megumi and the others need to make before his sister Tsumiki has to declare herself as part of Kenjaku's Culling Game. The time is ticking down fast, and Megumi and Yuji are steadily running out of time before they can recruit the elusive but powerful third year, Kinji Hakari.
While Yuji Itadori is getting closer to Hakari while working in his underground fighting ring, Megumi has been attempting to find his own way towards Hakari by sneaking around and gathering information. In this stealth mission, Megumi has been utilizing a cool new use of his shadow bending Cursed Technique that the newest chapter further confirms allows him to travel through shadows and sneak up on his opponents.
Look at Megumi’s new skill!!!August 9, 2021
He can dive into someone’s shadows😆
Megumi, like many of the other fighters, had grown stronger following his fights during the Shibuya Incident and Chapter 154 is one of the first indications of how he's evolved in the days since. We got to see a bit of this in the previous chapter as Megumi had pulled his hood over his head and emerged from a shadow, but this chapter gives us a full sequence of just how this actually works. He first can dive into someone's shadow, and emerge shortly after for a quick stealth attack.
This ability was teased during his first use of his own Domain Expansion, Chimera Shadow Garden, which saw him bouncing around the shadows. But now it seems that rather than be limited to his own controlled area, Megumi can now use this technique at will in fights. Now it's just a matter of seeing just how much he can use this ability, and what the limits of it are in fights. But what do you think?
How are you liking Megumi's ninja like new ability? Excited to see him use it more in future fights? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments! You can even reach out to me directly about all things animated and other cool stuff @Valdezology on Twitter!
