What Happened in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 239
In Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 239, titled “Idiot Survivor,” the battle between Yuji Itadori and Higuruma rages on. Higuruma uses his cursed technique, Binding Vow, to put Yuji at a disadvantage. But Yuji manages to push past the limitations of Binding Vow and lands a powerful hit on Higuruma.
Higuruma, despite his defeat, reveals that his intention wasn’t to kill Yuji. Instead, he wanted to test Yuji’s determination and see if he’s a suitable vessel for Kenjaku’s plans. Higuruma believes that Yuji’s unwavering will to survive makes him a perfect candidate for Kenjaku’s goals.

Beyond the main storyline, the chapter offers insights into Higuruma’s past. It’s revealed that he was once a member of Kyoto Jujutsu High School and holds deep respect for Gojo Satoru.
