Hope you are here after Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 episode 7. Minor spoilers ahead.
Titled “The Shibuya Incident”, Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 episode eight starts off with Satoru Gojo’s arrival at the scene where a mysterious curtain is preventing humans from leaving the scene. Like the cool cucumber that he is, Gojo floats over the panicking crowd, pretty much figuring out what the trap is about as the creepy trio of Jogo, Choso, and Hanami wait to corner him. Meanwhile, Yuji teams up with Mei Mei and Ui Ui to be Gojo’s back up and fight cursed spirits at another location.
This edition features a hilariously entertaining underground fight between Yuji and a locust cursed spirit, with high-quality animation highlighting Yuji’s moves. Their brief, inane interaction and swift violent exchange will thoroughly amuse most fans. While the Kokichi vs. Mahito showdown was quite a spectacle in episodes six and seven, this edition proves to be more engaging, since there are two simultaneous face-offs taking place. Mei Mei is impressed with her junior’s capabilities; in fact, even the sadistic Mahito indirectly acknowledges Yuji’s skills.
For those who haven’t read the manga, “The Shibuya Incident” is a steadily paced episode, which is packed with fights and also strategic talk. It explains in detail, through flashbacks, what Suguru Geto has in mind with his elaborate Shibuya curtain to trap Gojo. Timestamps appear throughout the runtime, adding a sense of urgency and impending doom to the proceedings. With some of the most powerful cursed spirits uniting against Gojo, can they really deal a blow to the Jujutsu sorcerers? The episode ends with an exciting climax, so we’ll just have to wait for the next episode to see where things go!
