The battle against Sukuna has been a prolonged struggle in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, which is hardly surprising given Sukuna’s status as a special-grade curse. He’s proven to be an exceptionally formidable opponent, especially when he’s in control of a vessel like Megumi Fushiguro, who doesn’t resist as fiercely as Yuji Itadori did.
At present, Sukuna has taken full possession of Megumi’s body, and he hasn’t hesitated to utilize the sorcerer’s techniques to further his own objectives. It’s a strategic move for him, as a victory achieved through any means is still a victory. However, there’s one development that Megumi’s fans find particularly difficult to accept – the looming possibility of the character’s demise, especially in light of the events of chapter 237.
In this chapter, readers witness Sukuna completely dominate Megumi’s body in a way that many didn’t even think was possible. As fans grapple with the emotional impact of these recent chapters, it’s worth revisiting how Sukuna managed to acquire a new vessel for those who may have forgotten.
Sukuna forcibly took over Megumi’s body in chapter 212 of Jujutsu Kaisen. When Megumi saw his sister Tsumiki being controlled by Yorozu, he was momentarily paralyzed with shock, providing Sukuna with the opening he needed.
Leveraging the pact he had made with Itadori during the Fearsome Womb arc, the cursed spirit assumed control of their shared body for a minute. His first action was to incapacitate Kurusu. Subsequently, Sukuna removed one of his own fingers, imbued it with cursed energy, and then approached Megumi. Just as the sorcerer attempted to counterattack, Sukuna forcefully fed him the detached finger, effectively transferring his consciousness and cursed energy from Yuji’s body to Megumi’s.
Following the possession, Megumi attempted to resist by interfering with Sukuna’s cursed energy, but his efforts were short-lived. The spirit underwent a ritual to further bury Megumi’s soul, and after killing Yorozu and Tsumiki, he easily achieved his goal. With the knowledge of his sister’s demise, Megumi’s soul became completely consumed by darkness, leading him to ultimately succumb to Sukuna’s possession.
Does this mean that Megumi’s soul and body are truly lost forever? At this point, it remains uncertain. As the manga approaches its conclusion, fans’ hopes are understandably dwindling.
