In Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 230, we will witness Gojo's arduous struggle to overcome Sukuna's new ace, Mahoraga, after his Domain Expansion failed to achieve the desired results. To have a fighting chance against this formidable opponent, Gojo will need to rely on his other powerful techniques, such as Hollow Purple and potentially Limitless: Red.
Sukuna's counterattack with Mahoraga poses a significant threat to Gojo, and it's likely that our protagonist will find himself on the defensive in the upcoming chapter. The manga has been building up to this intense showdown between Gojo and Sukuna, leaving readers eagerly anticipating the outcome.
Please note that the following contains spoilers for Jujutsu Kaisen 229, "Inhuman Makyo Shinjuku Showdown, Part 7," by Gege Akutami, translated by John Werry, and Lettered by Snir Aharon, available in English from MangaPlus.
With chapter 229 leaving fans on the edge of their seats, the upcoming Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 230 is highly anticipated. The manga took a hiatus after the events of chapter 229, during which Gojo and Sukuna engaged in a fierce and repetitive battle, attempting to assert dominance through their Domain Expansions. However, a breakthrough occurred when Gojo managed to initiate his Domain slightly faster than Sukuna's.
Despite this progress, the outcome didn't go exactly as Gojo had hoped. As we approach chapter 230, readers can expect an intriguing continuation of the story, building on the intense climax of the previous chapter.
Gojo Vs Mahoraga
In the previous chapter, fans witnessed Gojo's impressive use of Unlimited Void on Sukuna, leading many to believe that the fight was coming to an end. Successfully dealing damage to Sukuna seemed like the moment of victory for Gojo. However, to everyone's surprise, Sukuna tapped into the power of Mahoraga, despite being hit with an infinite amount of information from Unlimited Void. The script has now flipped, and Gojo's Unlimited Void won't work on Sukuna until Mahoraga is dealt with.
Mahoraga has been previously seen in action, and its incredible abilities make it a formidable weapon in Sukuna's arsenal. With the capacity to adapt to any attacks, it becomes a powerful ace up Sukuna's sleeve. Although Sukuna has defeated Mahoraga before, fans expect Gojo to do the same. However, Gojo won't have access to his Domain Expansion to aid him in this battle. He must rely on other potent techniques, such as Hollow Purple, to face the challenge. The key lies in Gojo's ability to act swiftly and execute his techniques with exceptional precision if he hopes to stand a chance against Mahoraga.
Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 230 is likely to focus on this crucial aspect of the fight, allowing fans to witness Gojo giving his best effort against Mahoraga. The intensity of the battle is sure to captivate readers as they await the outcome of this intense showdown.
Gojo's Next Best Powers
Fans are well aware that Gojo's most potent ability is his Domain Expansion, Unlimited Void, which he aimed to use in his fight against Sukuna. However, his plans were thwarted as he can no longer employ this technique due to Mahoraga's adaptation to it. Now, Gojo must rely on other abilities to defeat the Divine General, and Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 230 will showcase exactly that. Gojo's alternative techniques, Hollow Purple, and potentially Limitless: Red, will take center stage as he faces this formidable opponent.
Hollow Purple emerges as his best option, being one of his strongest techniques. If charged to 200%, as fans witnessed him do against Sukuna earlier, it might hold the power to defeat Mahoraga. However, if this approach fails, Gojo could find himself in dire straits, especially with Sukuna still posing a threat. Chapter 230 will heavily focus on Mahoraga, revealing why it served as Sukuna's secret weapon. There is also the possibility that Sukuna intentionally allowed Gojo to hit him with Unlimited Void to become acclimated to this ability.
Moreover, Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 230 may showcase Mahoraga in action, something fans eagerly anticipate as Gojo currently finds himself on the defensive. Witnessing Mahoraga's incredible capabilities again would be a remarkable treat, considering its infrequent appearances in the series.
Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 230 is likely going to showcase Gojo on his back foot. In the past chapter, Gojo held the upper hand for the vast majority of the fight. When compared to Sukuna, Gojo was superior in almost every aspect. When it comes to the usage of Cursed Energy, Gojo appeared to be more efficient and knew how to use it better, as evident from the fact that he could even restore his burnt-up Cursed Energy right from the get-go. With Six Eyes, he could further stabilize the usage of his Cursed Energy and, essentially, never run out of it. When it comes to Domain Expansion, Gojo believed that his Unlimited Void was vastly superior to Malevolent Shrine and his Limitless is surely better than the Innate Ability that Sukuna possesses. Even in hand-to-hand combat at close range, Gojo held the upper hand, as showcased in the previous chapter where Sukuna was being yanked and thrown around by Gojo's powers.
Clearly, Gojo held an advantage up until recently, however, now, things are going to be different. If Gojo is to lose this fight, he will be pushed on his back foot starting from the upcoming chapter. It is highly likely that Gojo will be pushed into a corner by Sukuna and Mahoraga together and this is where the fight could end up being decided. Gojo's clash against Sukuna has gone on for around 7 chapters now and it could potentially end in the very next one if Gege wishes it.
Jujutsu Kaisen was on a two-week break, however, the story is set to return next week. According to Manga Monster, Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 230 is all set to release on July 30, 2023. As always, fans can expect to read the chapter for free on Manga Monster and the Shounen Jump app.
