Jujutsu Kaisen Teases the Culling Game’s Second Phase


Jujutsu Kaisen is teasing the next phase of Kenjaku’s deadly Culling Game tournament with the newest chapter of the series! Now that Yuji Itadori and Megumi Fushiguro have both entered a colony as part of the Culling Game officially, the previous few chapters of the series have shown the two of them (as well as fans) the diversity of the kinds of challenges they will be coming across as the two of their paths have led to two wildly different opponents. But it seems that there’s going to be yet another shake up on the way right as they’re getting adjusted to the game.

The Culling Game has already thrown a number of wild twists Yuji and Megumi’s way since they entered into it officially, and while Yuji had come face to face with the one they were seeking out, Megumi was caught in the midst of a trap set by another sorcerer. As this new sorcerer introduces himself to Megumi with the newest chapter, he also sets the stage for what Kenjaku could be planning next with a potential expansion to the game being planned outside of Japan.

Chapter 167 of the series revisits Megumi as he comes across Reggie, the one Remi had been leading him towards, and Reggie tries to get Megumi to join their team. He has a major theory that the Culling Game is just a front for an even bigger plan to come. Rather than evolve the curse users from within each colony, the fact that each of them has 100 players each with one super strong fighter likely weeding out the numbers in great quality, there will soon be a forced deadlock between each of the colonies.

But when only the strongest fighters remain, Kenjaku has a plan for something even bigger. Reggie is planning to stock pile as many points and team members to be ready, but there’s no clue what the next phase of the game could be. There’s a look at Kenjaku speaking in Chinese outside of Japan, so it could be that he’s planning to expand the game worldwide and cause a surge for a whole other reason that has yet to be explained.


This all ties back to the fact that the curses we have seen thus far have been wanting to return to the greatest era of their history, and this Culling Game is likely a part of making this happen in the modern day. As for how or why, that remains to be seen. But what do you think? What do you think is coming for Yuji and the others next in the Culling Game?
