Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 178
We see Ryuu taking on Okkatsu after reminiscing about his past life in the last chapter. Taking a brief moment to himself, Ryuu talks about his past life, how he always ate in moderation, how he’s fought ‘staunch men’ and met ‘good women.’ All the while, referring to how after having done all these things, Ryuu never felt complete and had an insatiable void.
At the same time, Ryuu was seen preparing himself to launch an attack at Okkotsu. While Ryuu’s attacks were powerful, Okkotu takes them on despite being worn off from previous fights. As Ryuu exclaims, “It’s like I’m banging on an absurdly large water tank.” While they both continue to fight with Okkotsu dropping Ryuu to the ground, there’s a new entry in the fight, Tatako.
As Tatako enters the fight, Ryuu is seen attacking her. However, she not only dodges Ryuu’s attack; but also redirects the attack back at Ryuu. In the next few frames, we saw how Okkotsu uses his curse energy reserves to recover. At the same time, Ryuu and Tatako knew that Okkotsu would soon run out of curse energy, which Okkotsu is also aware of. With the same thought, in the last frame, we see Okkotsu calling forward Rika to fight alongside him, “come, Rika, all of you,” he says.
