The Jujutsu Kaisen franchise has already developed a solid fan base across the world. With its new movie releasing on December 24th, 2021, and a second season announced, the series seems to be at its peak. However, the health condition of Gege Akutami is a considerate problem for the fandom. Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 162 will be delayed this week. Apart from this, we hope Akutami sensei’s health doesn’t deteriorate any further.

Chapter 162 starts with an unknown character stating her superiority to another in-game participant Alma. On the other side, Yuji and Itadori have a chat about the participants and obstructions they’ll face upon entering the game. Finally, the duo arrives at the arena. On arriving, Yuji and Megumi meet Kogane, a character who introduces them to the Culling game. With this, the pair enters the game to achieve their goals.
