Post-Season Two, Jujutsu Kaisen is smashing records, skyrocketing in popularity. Yet, a little-known fact: the manga almost faced cancellation due to lukewarm initial reader response. Thankfully, Gege Akutami persevered, gifting us the electrifying duality of Sukuna and Yuji.

The King of Curses has claimed countless lives in print, yet Yuji Itadori, his former host, remains elusive. With Sukuna seizing control of Megumi, his sights are set on Yuji's demise. Since the manga's outset, Sukuna's loathing for Yuji has been palpable.

But why such disdain for Jujutsu Kaisen's lead? Amidst battle, Sukuna contemplates this, troubled by his own question. Memories of his past dominance surface, a time when he imposed his will "simply because he could."

Sukuna's existence has been without deviation from his innate nature. He's never pursued a greater purpose, never dedicated himself to anything, unchanged even now. The strongest Curse bristles at seeing someone so committed to an ideal. Sukuna's own words hint at a millennia-old memory, fueling his scorn for aspiration.

Enter Yuta Okkotsu, disrupting Sukuna's murderous intent towards Yuji. As we anticipate Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 249, excitement builds for the showdown with Sukuna, especially with Yuta joining the fray.

What's your take on Sukuna's musings? Driven by envy or hiding something about Yuji? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
