With the release of Chapter 221, Jujutsu Kaisen has made fans all over the world happy. The plot had taken several dark twists throughout the Culling Game, but Yuji and the gang eventually made the journey to release Satoru Gojo. It couldn't have come at a better time as he moved forward to face Kenjaku. With the release of Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222, the tables may finally be turned.
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222 Release Date and Time
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222 will be released on May 14, 2023. The chapter will be available at 8:00 a.m. PST / 11:00 a.m. EST. Unfortunately, it will only be a month long break, but it will give fans enough time to build up the anticipation. This has been confirmed by the Viz Media Jujutsu Kaisen portal and will be freely updated on MangaMonster. This will almost certainly give Gege Akutami and other mangaka time to celebrate Golden Week at the end of April.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 221 Spoilers and the Expectation in Chapter 222
It’s likely no surprise to anybody at this point that Gojo is back. You’ll not likely be able to escape it on Twitter, as moments after the chapter dropped, posts started going up about the fateful unsealing.
Gojo has returned, and he's feeling very confident in his abilities to take on Kenjaku now that he's possessed Suguru Geto's body. Because Kenjaku was prepared to assassinate him the instant the seal was released, his prison world was put in the darkest depths of the Japan Trench. Despite this, Gojo is fearless at the moment.
Sukuna joins the fray as well, poised to act on his promise to take Gojo down after possessing Megumi’s body. Despite being outnumbered, Gojo is far from outclassed, and with the release of Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 222, it’s going to be an epic showdown. They set a date, 5 weeks ahead (seemingly a little meta) for the confrontation, with an opportunity to prepare.
It remains to be seen whether this means the true fight will take place two chapters (or at least two weeks) after Chapter 222, but this Jujutsu Kaisen release is one to mark on your calendars.
