Jujutsu Kaisen creators took their time with making Episode 30 available for fans, but the wait has been worth it. Because flashback time is over, which means fan favorite Yuji Itadori is back in the story with his antics! The plot will re-focus in Yuji’s attempts to find all the body parts of the demon he has been cursed with, along with his rise in the ranks of Jujutsu sorcerers.

Titled “It’s Like That”, episode 30 begins with Yuji, Kugisaki and Fushiguro fresh from a mission and the three split to have some “me time”, even though Yuji tries to convince his friends to watch a weird sci-fi film called “Earthworm Man 4”. We also get a hilarious plot outline to the movie, which looks straight out of a Junji Ito manga – creepy & unsettling. Even though the friends go their own ways, they all end up meeting at a restaurant when a stranger inquires about Yuji. Meanwhile, their Jujutsu sorcerer seniors have recommended the trio for an upgrade in rank, which means they will get to go on more dangerous missions and deal with wackier entities.
While the first half is upbeat and comical, with some romantic elements thrown, the second-half, like most Jujutsu Kaisen episodes, takes a grim turn. After a fun day out, Yuji, Kugisaki and Fushiguro assist a senior in investigating a mole in the academy. Somebody has been leaking their secrets and they need to find out who ASAP. Betrayal, blood and battles follow.
We get to see Mahito, one of the primary villains and special grade spirits, after a long time, and he is just as despicable as ever. Suguru Geto appears alongside him as the two plot together against Jujutsu sorcerers, and watching them together offers a great contrast of personalities. Mahito is the impulsive, sadistic, and almost childish antagonist, while Geto is more calm and calculated, preventing Mahito from making hasty choices. At least so far. The episode ends mid-fight, ramping up anticipation for the next chapter. It was thoroughly engaging, featuring excellent animation and seamless scene transitions.
