In the last chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen, Kirara spotted Panda and Fushiguro outside of Kinji Hakari’s location, resulting in a battle. Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 155, “Fever” begin with Hakari explaining how much he loves “fever.” It’s what “people get high on,” when they make mistakes. Without people cannot fall in love. The most direct way to deal with fever is to gamble. Hakari believes that life itself is a gamble and everyone does it. He hope to gain “control over Japan,” by controlling the fever through the fight club. With the reveal to the public that cursed spirits are real and the pressure on Jujutsu Headquarters, Hakari plans to take advantage of the chaos.
He expects the Jujutsu regulations to change and wants to force them to acknowledge the fight club. Suddenly his phone rings. He ignores it and offers Itadori a drink. Yuji refuses alcohol as he’s underage. When Hakari asks if he knows Gojo can’t “drink either,” Yuji ruins the plan by pretending he has no idea who Gojo is. Hakari asks him if he’s a Jujutsu High spy and attacks with his Cursed Technique. He creates two doors, attempting to catch Yuji in-between them. Yuji dodges, trying to explain himself. However, Hakari manages to crush Yuji neck in two more doors. He explains that when he gets a call from Kirara it means “somethings up.” Yuji head buts him and demands Hakari listen.
We need to convince Kirara
Elsewhere, Megumi and Panda try to convince Kirara they mean no harm. Megumi explains they need Hakari’s cooperation with dealing with the recent Jujutsu terror attacks. Panda explains why they came into conflict with the higher ups in the first place. Panda says that the more “conservative” faction of Jujutsu High prefer more conventional Jujutsu like Nobara Kugisaki’s Straw Doll Technique over the modern techniques that feature technology like cursed video tapes. Megumi reveals that Gojo was sealed and that’s why they need them. Kirara doesn’t appear to believe them but Megumi thinks they must convince Kirara if they’ll have any chance to meet Hakari.
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 155 reminds us of something Gojo always stated, the Jujutsu High leaders are too conservative. What specifically made them conservative was never explained until now. I wonder what actually is consider modern cursed techniques. For example the Zenin Families inherited technique, projection sorcery, appears to turn opponents into flat screen tv’s. For specifically the technique “divides one second into twenty-four frames of animation using the user’s field of view as the projection angle of view.” Furthermore, how does cursed tools fit in. Yoshinobu Gakuganji use of an electric guitar could be too modern. I don’t expect this conflict to get too violent and believe Yuji will convince Hakari to join them. I’m really excited to see Kirara and Hakari’s techniques.
