Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222 leaked spoilers have been released on the internet, signaling the end of the manga’s two-week hiatus. Chapter 221 showed Satoru Gojo being unsealed from the Prison Realm and returning to the series after 131 chapters. The Six Eyes sorcerer immediately tried to kill Kenjaku and recover Suguru Geto’s body, before being intercepted by Sukuna who is currently using Megumi Fushiguro as his vessel.

Intending to learn more about what had transpired in the nineteen days he had been cut off from the outside world, Gojo decided to challenge the King of Curses to a proper battle on December 24, which also happened to be Geto’s death anniversary. The raw scans for the upcoming chapter provide a rough overview of the preparations made by both sides in anticipation of the most awaited fight in the series, between Satoru Gojo and Ryomen Sukuna.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222 leaked spoilers suggest that Sukuna might not be at full strength during his fight against Gojo

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222 leaked spoilers reveal that the title of the latest chapter is “Omen.” The raw scans begin with Sukuna ingesting four more of his fingers, bringing his current strength level up to that of nineteen fingers. Uraume begs for forgiveness and admits that he has failed to locate the final finger, but Sukuna brushes it off and guesses that Gojo likely hid the twentieth finger in an attempt to prolong Yuji Itadori’s life.

Sukuna decides to replace the finger with a portion of the mummified remains Kenjaku had collected from Hida mountain. The raw scans move on to show Kenjaku lounging in front of a television nineteen days later, asking Kogane how many Culling Game players have died during this time due to their cursed techniques being removed, prompting the shikigami to declare that sixty-one more players have died in the death tournament.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222 leaked spoilers then depict the situation on the players’ side, as Gojo learns about Nanami and the others from Ijichi and Shoko Ieri. The sorcerer comments that he always thought that Nanami was the kind of person to survive anything, prompting Ijichi to apologize. But Gojo chastises the manager, reminding Ijichi of the important duty he has to perform soon. Shoko then invites Takuma Ino inside, who states that he needs to tell Gojo something about Nanami.

The raw scans show other sorcerers making the best of the situation, beginning with Mei Mei who earns 50 million yen simply by selling tickets for the betting pool opened for the Gojo vs. Sukuna fight. Yuji trains with Kusakabe, easily overwhelming the Grade 1 sorcerer in physical combat. The leaked spoilers also show Toge Inumaki joining the sorcerers, with Yuta Okkotsu explaining that he hid from Yuji that Toge lost his arm in Shibuya during Sukuna’s rampage to spare their junior from further pain and guilt. Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222 raw scans show the series going through another brief time-skip as the chapter jumps to December 24.


Kenjaku reveals his plan to go kill off the remaining Culling Game players during Sukuna and Gojo’s fight, reasoning that powerful sorcerers like Yuta, Hakari and Maki would not be able to escape if Gojo loses, since they will likely be on standby during the battle. At the Jujutsu High campus, Hakari, Panda, Maki, and Yuta discuss how to encourage the Six Eyes sorcerer and wish him luck for the fight.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222 spoilers then show a somber-looking Gojo descending down the stairs with Gakuganji and Utahime in tow. His intimidating aura makes him near-unapproachable, but Yuji breaks the ice by stating that Limitless was in the way and gives Gojo an encouraging clap on the back once the sorcerer laughs and turns off Infinity.

In conclusion

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222 leaked spoilers also reveal the editors’ comment declaring that the next chapter will depict the beginning of the battle between the two strongest characters in the series. Mei Mei’s stunt regarding the betting pool seems to be mangaka Gege Akutami’s subtle dig at readers trying to predict who would win the next major fight.

The chapter also acts as a marker highlighting a major boost in Yuji’s power levels and introduces the mystery regarding the location of the final finger. The final cursed finger may play a major role in the conclusion of the Gojo vs. Sukuna fight, since Gojo had boasted early on in the series that he could defeat the King of Curses at full strength, although it might be a bit strenuous to do so, even for him.
