Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 262: The Smallest JJK Chapter

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 262: The Smallest JJK Chapter
Gojo and Yuta (Mappa)

In Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 262, fans were hit with surprising news unrelated to the story itself—mangaka Gege Akutami’s sudden health issues necessitate a two-week break following this chapter’s release. This chapter is notably short, at just seven pages, but it manages to set up significant and exciting plot developments.

The chapter begins with both Yuta Okkotsu (as Satoru Gojo) and Ryomen Sukuna activating their Domain Expansions while Yuji Itadori and Aoi Todo watch.

Yuta successfully shrinks his Domain’s barrier to the size of a basketball, mirroring Gojo’s earlier tactic against Sukuna. Inside the barrier, the narrator explains Gojo’s countermeasure, noting that the barrier can withstand Malevolent Shrine’s attacks for about three minutes.

Yuta credits his body switch training with Gojo for enhancing his Barrier Techniques, feeling confident he can hold the Domain for the full three minutes, particularly considering Sukuna’s fatigue.

Sukuna, on the other hand, has altered his Malevolent Shrine by removing the 99-second time limit from his previous Binding Vow, limiting its effective range to just Yuta’s Domain.

This adjustment allows Sukuna to concentrate his attacks on Yuta’s barrier, rather than wasting energy on unnecessary space.

The narrator underscores the critical three-minute window, with Yuta aiming to incapacitate Sukuna within this period, while Sukuna boasts he’ll need less time to break Unlimited Void.

Sukuna charges at Yuta, bypassing Gojo’s Infinity using Domain Amplification—a trick he previously used against Gojo in a Domain that Mei Mei’s crows couldn’t enter.

The chapter then shifts to a poignant scene where water hits the ground, revealed as tears from a fully manifested Rika. She holds Yuta’s lifeless body, crying and calling his name, with the chapter ending on a close-up of Yuta’s lifeless eyes.

Despite its brevity, chapter 262 is packed with tension and pivotal moments. It suggests that the climactic battle against Sukuna is reaching its conclusion, with both combatants resolved to end it decisively.

Rika’s full manifestation hints at her impending involvement in the battle’s resolution. However, due to Akutami’s health break, fans will have to wait at least two weeks to see how these plotlines unfold.
