Hana Kurusu came close to defeating Sukuna. Sukuna wields an immense amount of cursed energy and possesses the strength to use it effectively, making him a formidable opponent.


In the recent Jujutsu Kaisen chapter, Sukuna, the King of Curses, has regained the power he had in the past and appears almost invincible.

However, it’s interesting to consider that Sukuna may have faced near-defeat in a previous battle, which could have prevented the subsequent catastrophic events caused by him.

Jujutsu Kaisen Extra Pages Reveal Sukuna’s Near-Defeat Situation

According to AnimeSenpai, Volume #24 of the manga contains additional pages for certain chapters, especially Chapter 213, which has garnered significant attention from fans. This chapter depicts a moment where a character nearly defeats Sukuna.

In Chapter 213, Sukuna takes control of Megumi’s body. When Hana Kurusu, who has a crush on Megumi, saw this, she tried to save him. Hana Kurusu is a young sorcerer in the Culling Game, with an ancient sorcerer named Angel in her body.

This is the only time in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga where Sukuna is seen in such a weakened state. This makes people wonder if Hana could have actually defeated Sukuna at that moment.

If this had happened, it could have changed the future of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga. According to a leaker, Gege Akutami, the author of Jujutsu Kaisen, also made corrections to a panel showing Hana’s attack on Sukuna, where Sukuna is nearly completely burnt.

New Panels Tease Focus on Hana’s Role in the Battle Against Sukuna

These new panels might be suggesting that we’ll see more of Angel and Hana in the upcoming chapters. They were the ones who seriously hurt Sukuna, making him use clever tactics to avoid being defeated.

Now that Gojo Satoru, the most powerful Jujutsu Sorcerer, is no longer a threat to Sukuna, other sorcerers will probably need to work together if they want to stand a chance against Sukuna, especially now that he’s back to his original form.

The extra pages in these chapters also hint at the possibility of witnessing more of the Gojo vs. Sukuna battle.
