The Jujutsu Kaisen manga is preparing to go on a short break for this week’s issue of Shonen Jump. Chapter 167 of Gege Akutami’s hit series was expected to release this coming Wednesday but has since been pushed back. Currently, the reason for this one-week jump hasn’t been announced, but one can guess that it is probably so the mangaka can receive a well-deserved break. After all, he has been creating amazing chapters back to back.
As of recent some manga creators have started to take the last week of the month off for their own well-being, though it could have been coincidentally, it seems that Gege Akutami has also started to do this. However, nothing is known at this point in time, we as readers will just have to wait and see.
Although there is no new chapter coming out we can still go over what went down last chapter and some predictions for what we will see in next week’s chapter 167. Read on to find everything you need to know for JJK’s upcoming 167th chapter.
Chapter 166 Recap
Before we jump into spoilers and predictions for chapter 167 let’s do a quick recap of what went down in the most recent chapter of the series.
In the previous chapter, we saw Higuruma prepared to bestow Yuji Itadori with the death penalty that Judgeman had given him. But Higuruma paused for a second as he thought back to how the evidence Judgeman had given him had proven the young sorcerer innocent, instead the demon, Sukuna who had inhabited Itadori’s body as the real offender. Taking advantage of this brief pause Itadori sent his opponent flying with a punch.
Higuruma, who got blown into the theatre seats, sits up and informs Itadori that he is indeed innocent. Reciting a law from the Japanese Penal Code that states, “if a person lacks cognitive ability or capacity of control they are considered as someone who couldn’t think for themselves properly at the time,” therefore proving Itadori innocent.
Higuruma then stands up and recalls a time he was weak just like Yuji. After the duo, now relaxed and calm, take a seat together Higuruma announces that he will give the 100 points to our hero because he is weak like he himself was. Higuruma then starts to talk about his own backstory, as we end there, giving us a small preview of what to expect next chapter.
Chapter 167 Spoilers
Although no spoilers are currently out we do have a preview for the next chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen, which you can see below says, “that weakness is the lamp that illuminates the darkness.” A very confusing and cryptic statement, but it’s probably referring to Higuruma’s back story and how he is where he currently is.
After all chapter 166 ended on a flashback scene, meaning that chapter 167 could be all about Higuruma and his backstory. Maybe we will learn who he killed and why and some other things about this new fan-favorite character.
Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 167 was expected to release officially on Sunday, November 28th, 2021 as per usual. However, this week’s chapter has been delayed most likely so that Gege Akutami, the creator behind the series can have a well-deserved break.
Jujutsu Kaisen is expected to return next week with chapter 167 now expected to release, Sunday, December 5th, 2021. If there are any changes to this we will be sure to update this page!
