At the end of the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie, Yuta defeats Geto with the help of Rika “Queen of Curses”. Unwillingly Gojo kills his best friend to protect all the other sorcerers. After the events in Jujutsu Kaisen 0, Kenjaku had managed to take control of Geto’s body, setting up a captivating chain of surprises and unknowns.
Kenjaku wasted no time and swiftly used his incredible Innate Technique to shift his consciousness into Geto’s dormant body. This enabled him to fully embody Geto’s persona. Henceforth, he operated under the name Pseudo-Geto, not only acquiring Geto’s looks but also mastering his formidable Cursed Spirit Manipulation technique.
Why did Kenjaku Choose Geto’s Body?
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 9 left all fans stunned by revealing Kejaku’s original form currently possessing Geto’s body. The episode ended with the shocking event of Sealing Gojo Satoru, the strongest sorcerer of the Modern Era. This single event shows how smart and cunning Kenjaku is.
The Prison Realm has only 2 conditions: First, it should be within a radius of 4 meters of the target. Secondly, the target should be there for a minimum of 1 minute. The only cache here is the one minute that should be inside his brain, simply said 1 minute of thoughts. The seal was only possible because of Geto’s body, which brought back lots of memories for Satoru.
As we have seen at the beginning of Season 2, Tengen Sama was not able to merge with the Star Plasma. Resulting in the evolution of Tengen who later turned into a cursed spirit and Geto has the ability to manipulate curse spirits. This is where Kenjaku can give shape to his evil plans by consuming Tengen Sama as he is a curse spirit now. Finally, merging Tengen with all the people in Japan for Mankind’s Evolution.
Over time, he has inhabited various people, like Noritoshi Kamo and an unnamed sorcerer from the Heian era. Interestingly, he has never taken control of Yuji Itadori’s mother, Kaori Itadori. The reasons behind Kenjaku’s mysterious actions continue to be a major enigma in the story. The exact workings of Kenjaku’s cursed technique are still a puzzle, with plenty of unanswered questions about his abilities.
There’s some talk going around that body possession is different from his mysterious cursed technique, which hasn’t been revealed yet. Also, Kenjaku playing the role of Kaori Itadori, Yuji Itadori’s mom, brings an interesting side story that could lead to some unexpected turns and shocking revelations for fans who are eagerly following the manga. Now, it all depends on the Mangaka Gege Akutami and how the plot turns out to be.
