Jujutsu Kaisen’s manga ending is closer than ever, but the tragedies continue to occur – so here is a list of five characters likely to die before the manga ends.

Even among the dark Shonen series, Jujutsu Kaisen is famous for its brutal storytelling. Over the years, the series has killed off several fan-favorite characters and villains as well. Nonetheless, it doesn’t look like Gege Akutami plans to stop the bloodshed anytime soon.

The manga is currently in its final stretch and is featuring the fight against all the villains. The sorcerers are either fighting with everything they have, or they’re on standby, ready to jump into the battle whenever they’re needed.

The character deaths are far from over as the battle continues – so here is a list of five characters likely to die before the manga ends. So, here’s a list of five characters who we believe won’t be alive till the end of the series. Warning: this article contains spoilers from the manga!

5. Choso

Choso is Yuji’s only remaining family, and that’s more than enough reason to believe that he will die a gruesome death in Jujutsu Kaisen. Considering Gege Akutami’s “hobby” of killing everyone Yuji cares about in front of him, Choso’s death seems all the more likely. In Chapter 246, Choso and Ino charge against Sukuna while Higuruma, Kusakabe, and Yuji are already fighting the villain.

Sukuna literally impals Choso, but the chapter doesn’t reveal his status. There’s a chance that he will only suffer fatal wounds and be healed with Reverse Cursed Technique. However, nothing has been set in stone as of yet. 

4. Uraume

Uraume, also known as the Frozen Star, is one of the antagonists of Jujutsu Kaisen. They’re an incarnated sorcerer and loyal subordinate of Sukuna. They are currently battling Kinji Hakari, while the others are fighting the King of Curses.

Uraume may be powerful, but the fate of the villain is to die at the hands of those on the side of justice. Their fight with Hakari often gets sidelined due to POV changes as we see the sorcerers taking action against Kenjaku and Sukuna. Although the fight can go in anyone’s favor, it would be thrilling to watch Hakari defeat Uraume.

3. Megumi Fushiguro

Megumi’s fate has been sealed as soon as Sukuna possessed his body. Gege Akutami had already stated that among Gojo and the first years, either one will survive or only one will die. So far, Nobara and Gojo have already died. Although Nobara’s death isn’t officially confirmed, all hints point toward her death.

Now, all that’s left is fan-favorite Jujutsu Kaisen character, Megumi Fushiguro. Sukuna used Megumi’s body to incarnate in his true form, meaning it’s unclear what happened to Megumi. Although Yuji says he has a plan to save Megumi, it was before Sukuna’s incarnation. Therefore, Megumi may not survive to the end of the series. 

2. Kenjaku

It’s natural that the antagonists will pay for their sins before the story ends. Kenjaku’s goal is to merge the Japanese population with Master Tengen. But the sorcerers cannot allow him to do that. Although it may not be Takaba, there are others who can still defeat the ancient curse user.

Yuta swore to defeat Kenjaku for Gojo’s sake. He doesn’t want his beloved sensei to go through the pain of killing his best friend again. Yuta is also the only special-grade sorcerer who might stand a chance against Kenjaku. If not alone, he will likely get help from others, but Kenjaku will die before the end.

1. Ryomen Sukuna

The undefeated King of Curses must fall before the manga ends. Now that Sukuna has incarnated, he has unleashed the true extent of his powers, easily killing two strongest sorcerers effortlessly. However, the battle against the strongest is still ongoing, and someone has to defeat him before he destroys the world.

The manga changed POV after Yuji and Higuruma jumped in the battle against Sukuna. Although it’s unclear who among the sorcerers will defeat him, it will likely be the protagonist whom everyone is waiting for. Yuji’s true powers are still unknown, but he might be the only hope the world has.
