Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 238: Did Sukuna Just Turn Kashimo into a Filler Character?

jjk-238-spoilers-and-leaks-4

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 238 leaks took everyone by surprise, and not necessarily in a good way. We knew Kashimo didn’t stand much of a chance against the King of the Curses, but what we were hoping for was a good fight – something to match all the excitement that had been building up. Some of us even had our fingers crossed, hoping Kashimo might pull off what Might Guy did in his fight against Madara.

But what we got in Chapter 238 wasn’t anything like that. Instead of Kashimo’s dramatic end, we saw Yuji Itadori stepping into the spotlight. Fans were thrilled, of course, but there was also a sense of worry.

  • It’s a bit like a double-edged sword. If Yuji loses this fight, it means his life is on the line, and we’ve barely recovered from Gojo’s death. But if Yuji wins, it could actually be worse.

Let’s take a look at the JJK 238 leaks, and then we’ll talk about why fans are feeling a bit let down about how Kashimo’s character was handled in the chapter.

JJK Chapter 238 Leaks: Sukuna vs. Kashimo comes to End

Chapter 238 of Jujutsu Kaisen opens with Kashimo, armed with X-ray-enhanced eyes, analyzing Sukuna. The narrator paints a picture of Sukuna as nothing short of “perfection.”

  • Even if Sukuna needed to use hand signs for his cursed techniques, it wouldn’t hinder him; his two extra hands mean he can chant non-stop, sparing his lungs. He’s in a league of his own even among elite sorcerers.

Kashimo, captivated, can’t help but call Sukuna “beautiful.” He launches an attack, but Sukuna effortlessly grabs him and delivers a devastating punch, sending Kashimo flying. As Sukuna begins chanting for an attack, he warns Kashimo to dodge.

  • With a thunderous strike, Sukuna unleashes a colossal “DISMANTLE” slash, and Kashimo deduces that its the attack that finished Gojo. He dubs it the “slash that cuts the world.”

With a thunderous strike, Sukuna unleashes a colossal “DISMANTLE” slash, and Kashimo deduces that its the attack that finished Gojo. He dubs it the “slash that cuts the world.

  • Sukuna reflects on a misguided attempt to teach him love and muses that there’s no one on his level. He believes the person should have imparted that wisdom to Gojo or Kashimo.
  • As Kashimo takes on the form of the Heian era, Sukuna questions the countless challengers Kashimo must have faced and killed to earn recognition. He asks if this isn’t a form of mercy.

Kashimo returns to his present form as Sukuna argues that the strongest individuals are loved because of their strength, so why worry about loneliness? Kashimo counters, asking why Sukuna, who now understands this, chose to split his soul and travel to the current era. Sukuna just yells, “LOVE IS TRASH!”

Kashimo’s Underwhelming Fate in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 238:

Fans couldn’t help but feel a sense of disappointment in how Kashimo’s character was handled in Chapter 238.

  • It’s important to note that nobody was under the illusion that Kashimo stood a fair chance against Sukuna. However, the anticipation leading up to this showdown, fueled by Gege Akutami’s careful crafting of Kashimo’s character, left fans expecting something more.

Sukuna did transform into his true, terrifying form during this battle, but the manga made it abundantly clear that he didn’t do it because Kashimo posed a genuine threat. Sukuna essentially flexed his muscles because he felt like it.

The truth is, Sukuna could have demonstrated his overwhelming strength even if Kashimo hadn’t been present. This raises the question of what the purpose of this confrontation really was.

  • The disappointment doesn’t stem from unrealistic expectations of Kashimo emerging victorious. After all, we’re aware of Sukuna’s overwhelming power. What fans did expect, however, was a meaningful contribution from Kashimo’s character, given the mythos surrounding him in the Jujutsu Kaisen universe. Even in defeat, Kashimo’s role should have added depth to the plot, leaving a lasting impact.

Regrettably, the manga seemed to relegate Kashimo to the status of a filler character. His presence, once charged with potential, ultimately felt underutilized.

Conclusion:

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 238 brought thrilling moments and Sukuna’s formidable presence to the forefront, it left fans feeling somewhat let down by Kashimo’s underwhelming role. The buildup to this clash was intense, and while victory for Kashimo wasn’t expected, a more significant contribution to the plot certainly was. Nevertheless, the future of this gripping manga remains uncertain, and fans eagerly await the next twists and turns in this supernatural saga.
