“Thank you. My stomach’s full now”. These are the last words of Ishigori Ryu as the long-standing fight between Okkotsu Yuta and Ryu finally came to an end in the latest chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen. Unfortunately, the author has announced that the manga will be on hiatus for a week. There is no need to fret though as this suggests that they will be returning with an even more exciting plot as we continue with the Sendai Colony Arc.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 180 Recap
Here’s what happened in the previous chapter, Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 180.
- It is revealed to us that Yuta can direct a high output blast of cursed energy only while Rika is fully manifested. However, he is still weaker than Ishigori.
- They both launch blast attacks at each other. Ishigori notices that Rika is able to fire her own cursed energy.
- Ishigori is certain that he will win the battle. He reasoned that Yuta would take a long time to recover his cursed energy. But on the other hand, Yuta had already recovered when Ishigori attacked with Granite Blast.
- He drew the space around him using Uro’s cursed technique. Ishigori realises he was mistaken about Yuta’s cursed technique at first. Yuta assaults him, and Rika punches him in the head. But Ishigori fights back.
- Aside from the five-minute time constraint, the hit on Rika was devastating, and she eventually reached her limit. Yuta and Ishigori begin fighting hand-to-hand. Yuta manages to grab Ishigori and pulls him down proclaiming that their fight is over.
- A blast of cursed energy descends from the sky. Ishigori realizes that Yuta used Uro’s cursed method to redirect his own attack back at him. He thanks Yuta for the fight, claiming his stomach is now full.
