We get into a flashback where Itadori and his friends, Sasaki and Iguchi are members of the Occult Club. Ishiguro is wandering around in Itadori’s school and notices a power curse creature who is Itadoris’.
As a student of Jujutsu Tech, Fushiguro is in search of a high-grade curse object. Isadora had a last yet deep conversation with his grandfather before the latter passes away.
He told Itadori to live a life helping out others and die with people surrounding him and not to follow his grandfather’s footsteps. Ishiguro comes and sympathizes with Itadori but asks for a serious conversation.
In conversation, Itadori mentions that his friends have an object like what Fushiguro is looking for and they are going to check it. Ishiguro gets alarmed and tells Itadori that their lives are at a great risk.
Itadori follows his grandfather’s wish:
Itadori rushes to get to his friends along with Fushiguro but they are late. The curses get out of control and Fushiguro tries to control the situation but gets injured.
Thinking about what his late grandfather said, Itadori reaches out to help his friends and Fushiguro from the crises and later eats the finger and is possessed by Sukuna. For more such articles and new updates about the series, stay tuned!
