A new successor to the Fushiguro family has arrived in Jujutsu Kaisen! The fight between the powerful Zenin family continues and one of the combatants has won an impressive victory. Before continuing, in this article there will be spoilers of the last chapter of the mangaavailable in Manga Plus by Shueisha.
Fighting Naoya Zenin over the course of the last few chapters had shown Maki how much she needed to grow in terms of using her full power, including her domain expansion, and how she had grown in her latest adventures, Maki had come to a new understanding of what she could actually do with her new form. But with the previous chapter also raising the stakes when Naoya activated the Domain Expansion technique on her, Maki was able to overcome everything and literally become a worthy successor to Tojias Domain Expansions will apparently no longer have an impact on it.
Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 198 continues after Naoya activated his domain expansion, and it is revealed that Maki was able to escape because, like Toji, she has no cursed energy of her own. and is therefore treated as an object. More than that, he actually needs to agree to be inside the Domain in the first place. It is revealed that Mai actually left him a replica of the tool Toji used long ago and it can cut the soul, but she needed to be able to see beyond her current vision to properly wield it.
With Maki unlocking that ability to see everything around her in a much deeper way than before, now has the ability to use the weapon the same way Toji used to. Delivering a finishing blow to Naoya, Maki completes her transformation to become a new version of Toji with the same kind of wild power that she used to wield long ago. Now it’s just a matter of watching her as she goes through the rest of the Sacrifice Game.
Maki Zenin during family conflict in Jujutsu Kaisen
Within a dream space, Mai explained that she was going to sacrifice herself while distancing herself from Maki. During that conversation, Maki listened to Mai’s explanation but she was constantly trying to close that distance. She didn’t want to let Mai go before they really had a chance to make up, but she was forced to accept that this was the end of their relationship in Jujutsu Kaisen.
In exchange for Mai giving her all to make sure Maki reached her potential, Maki promised to destroy everything, leaving no trace of the conflict. Maki would finally become the warrior that she was destined to be. However, she was devastated by the death of her sister, but she had no time to cry and he had to fulfill his promise to Mai right away, killing her father in cold blood without even hesitating. Right after, Maki was ready to move on and searched for the last thing her sister left her, a sword, the same one that belonged to Toji Fushiguro until very recently. With a cold and ruthless disposition, Maki looked at the sword and told Mai “let’s start”.
Maki mercilessly annihilated the entire Zenin clan without any expression of emotion.Well, that had been the promise he had made to his sister. He killed every Hei and Kukuri unit member present that day without a shred of remorse. The only words she exchanged with anyone were with Noaya when she asked if she had a human heart. This was after she decapitated Jinichi and dumped his severed head into a pond. Her response was simply, “No…they took it from me.”
The relationship with Naoya is complicated, as he also tried to call Maki an impostor during their fight, but Maki interrupted him by punching him in the face. She then teased him asking if she could repeat that statement. Finally, Maki managed to beat Naoya in the last chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen.
