Will Yuji Itadori Die in Jujutsu Kaisen?

When the majority of fans watched the fifth episode of Jujutsu Kaisen, they did so with a sense of dread. In addition to that, there is a good explanation for it.

Itadori was not able to interchange with Ryomen Sukuna at will, in contrast to the situation in the past. It is possible that this will have a negative impact on Itadori.

Moreover, a really unfortunate event did take place.

Itadori was summoned to trade places with Sukuna after the latter had successfully vanquished the special grade cursed spirit that was being held at the juvenile prison facility.

Despite this, Itadori was unable to switch because of some unknown situation. Yuji’s heart was ripped out by Sukuna, who viewed this as the perfect chance to take control of his body and took possession of his body.

With that being said, this was an excellent move on Sukuna’s part.

Because Sukuna was a cursed spirit, she did not require a heart in order to continue living. And in the future, even if he did require one, he would be able to quickly produce one again by employing the Reversed Cursed Technique (much way he repaired Itadori’s arms).

It was a foregone conclusion that Itadori would perish in this circumstance if he were to flip back to his previous state.

At this point, Sukuna believed that Itadori would be compelled to reevaluate his decision to regain control of his body.

However, due to the fact that Itadori is a shounen protag and a stubborn individual, there was no way that he would not switch back. And switch back he did, sacrificing his life in order to prevent Sukuna from rising to the top of the hierarchy.

Was the intention to create a twist similar to that of Attack on Titan, in which the main characters passed away without any prior warning?

Yes, but no.

At the conclusion of the episode, questions were raised over whether or not Itadori is truly absent from the world. In addition, we catch a glimpse of Sukuna conversing with (or gazing down on) another individual.

At this point, we are able to make the reasonable assumption that this individual is none other than Itadori (or is it?). The question is, what became of Itadori? What is his present location? Is he still alive, and if so, how so?

To provide a concise response to the inquiry, Yuji Itadori is still alive, despite the fact that his body is without a heart. At the moment, he is in the presence of Sukuna within the intrinsic realm of the latter.

The explanation for why he did it is straightforward, in case you were wondering about it. Sukuna’s vessel is known as Yuji. Sukuna will also pass away if Yuji does.

Through the process of transferring Yuji’s soul into his intrinsic realm, Sukuna effectively ensured that Yuji would continue to live, despite the fact that his physical body had passed away.

To tell you the truth, the physical body is not relevant in this context. This is due to the fact that a curse user like Sukuna finds it very simple to regenerate and mend organs through the use of the Reversed Cursed Technique.

Afterwards, Sukuna brings Yuji back to life when the former is coerced into entering into a deal or contract with another individual.

But Itadowi can not recall any of this happening to him at any point in time.

The fact that Itadori is now completely dependent on Sukuna is the reason why we thought Sukuna’s scheme was so excellent.

Sukuna has placed Itadori exactly where he wants him to be, and now he has the ability to set certain conditions on the former if he wants him to continue living.

How did Sukuna come to Itadori’s rescue?

Sukuna makes the decision to save Itadori because, in exchange, he wants to make a legally bound commitment with him. Additionally, as was noted before, Itadori is the vessel that Sukuna commands.

If he passes away, there is no way that he would be able to locate another vessel that is fit for him like Yuji (as Megumi explained in the first episode, it is a one in a million chance).

At the moment, Yuji is utilizing Sukuna in accordance with his own desires. It is up to him to switch with Sukuna anytime he pleases. As we seen at the juvenile prison facility, he even manages to get the cursed spirit to do what he wants and contribute to his success.

It should come as no surprise that Sukuna looks down on this. He has his own hidden agendas and objectives.

Through the formation of a legally enforceable promise, Sukuna is able to ensure that he will, at least for a portion of the time, be the one to command how those events unfold.

Nevertheless, there is no way that Itadori would go along with Sukuna’s demands without much difficulty. In the face of an evil spirit such as Sukuna, he would sooner die than give in to it.

It is thus necessary for the latter to devise some form of wager or treacherous condition that would convince Itadori that he still has a shot at winning. Just the icing on the cake is the fact that you are able to live.

Is it possible for Sukuna to pledge her allegiance to Itadori? In the event that he does, what can he expect from the latter? How much of a price would Itadori have to pay in the event that he is able to survive?
