The recent chapter’s spoilers of Jujutsu Kaisen were one of the most anticipated chapter that fans have been waiting for for a long time, as the series went on a break during the most crucial moment in the story.

The chapter was supposed to focus on Sukuna’s execution by the hands of Hiromi Higuruma’s shikigami – The Judgeman in his domain expansion. Judgeman began accusing Yuji of being responsible for the Shibuya Massacre, but Higuruma cut him off. In a daring act of defiance, Higuruma claimed that Sukuna was the one who carried out all of the crimes after he had obtained Yuji’s body.

When Sukuna is ultimately found guilty, Judgeman takes away his Cursed Technique and sentences him to death. But as the chapter comes to a close, Higuruma realized that if the guilty has a cursed tool, Judgeman’s Confiscation ruling will be applied to the Cursed tool first, instead of the plaintiff. This fact disrupted the entire story, and fans got disappointed by the likes of The Judgeman and Higuruma.

Hiromi Higuruma’s Shikigami – The Judgeman

Judgeman is a shikigami who is linked to Hiromi Higuruma’s natural cursed technique. He is the arbiter of Deadly Sentencing, his Domain Expansion. Instead of having a can’t-miss attack, Deadly Sentencing compels users to adhere to the guidelines of the user’s cursed technique.

Typically, the Judgeman punishes them with “Confiscation,” which stops them from using cursed techniques. Following the decision, the guilty party is immediately affected by the punishment, and the domain dissipates. Higuruma’s matching cursed technique allowed his skill as a lawyer to translate flawlessly into sorcery.

After Hiromi successfully gets his target punished by Judgeman, he possesses sufficient fighting skills to capitalize on the situation and use his shape-shifting gavel to smash them. However, Higuruma missed one small detail about the Judgeman, which resulted in fans hating on the Judgeman and his decision.

Fans Get Disappointed With Higuruma’s Shikigami

After the trial was about to end with the victory of sorcerers against Sukuna, the Judgeman made a simple twist that was unexpected by the fans and the sorcerers. Instead of confiscating Sukuna’s cursed techniques, the Judgeman confiscated his cursed tool, which resulted in Sukuna still having his cursed technique.

This was quite unexpected and underwhelming for fans as they took to X(Twitter) to share their disappointment regarding Judgeman and his cursed technique. They not only called him the worst Shikigami of all time, but they could not fathom how much he let down the build-up towards Higuruma and the Judgeman.

Judgeman is probably the first Shikigami that disappointed the Jujutsu Kaisen fans as he not only flawed the decision of the courtroom, but it made a big change in the story which would probably result in a lot of deaths in the future by the hands of Sukuna.
