Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 256 follows the sorcerers as they fight against Sukuna, and a black light of hope shines – so here’s the release date and major spoilers.

The battle against the strongest in Jujutsu Kaisen has been going on for months. One by one, sorcerers taste defeat against the invincible King of Curses.

Last week, the fight took an unexpected turn as members of Geto’s team arrived at the scene. Miguel and Larue, who followed Geto in his Night Parade of a Hundred Demons, were minor antagonists in the prequel movie.

Miguel’s abilities prove why Gojo considered him a threat in the movie. Not only that, but Yuji, Maki, and Choso also return to the battlefield. The chapter ends with Sukuna using his second Black Flash against Larue, hinting that the sorcerers might be doomed.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 256 begins with a brief flashback of Gojo explaining how Black Flash works. He confirms that Black Flash indeed depends on luck. Yuji has surpassed Gojo in overall Black Flash hits. Moving on to the battlefield, we see the sorcerers struggling against the villain.

Yuji and Choso launched consecutive attacks but to no avail. Meanwhile, Maki tries to stab Sukuna and gets hit by his Black Flash. That’s Sukuna’s third Black Flash in the fight, and Maki took two of them. Without giving her time to recover, Sukuna hits Maki with a Dismantle.

She notices Sukuna’s cursed technique is increasing in effectiveness. Sukuna then uses his fourth Black Flash against Choso as he crushes him to the wall. Choso barely manages to save his life by creating an armor of blood. As Sukuna prepares to kill Choso, Yuji punches the villain in the face.

Choso reveals if Yuji continues to hit Sukuna, his cursed technique output and control over Megumi’s body will weaken. Miguel tells Larue that they’ve done enough and should retreat now. However, Larue has other plans.

Yuji uses a Piercing Blood and is about to use a Black Flash. However, Larue uses his technique again. The chapter explains that his cursed technique can not only grab a physical body, but he can also grab their hearts or consciousness as well.

The chapter ends with Yuji hitting a massive Black Flash. The manga is on a break next week, as it ends with a major cliffhanger by teasing Yuji’s insane powers. The editor’s comment says that even the light of hope of shines black.
