Chapter 263 began with the destruction of Yuta Okkotsu’s Limitless Void and Sukuna’s Malevolent Shrine domain expansions after Okkotsu unleashed a powerful Hollow Purple.

Freed from the domains, Yuji Itadori and Aoi Todo charged back into the fight. However, Okkotsu, inhabiting Satoru Gojo‘s body through Kenjaku’s technique, collapsed after reaching his limit.

Rika, the Queen of Curses, remained with Okkotsu’s unconscious body, preventing Okkotsu from using Kenjaku’s cursed technique.

Sukuna capitalized by landing a Black Flash on Todo. Yet, the battlefield littered with Okkotsu’s cursed energy allowed Todo to use Boogie Woogie and assist Itadori in attacking Sukuna.

Itadori’s blows targeted the connection between Sukuna and Megumi Fushiguro’s soul, forcing Sukuna to even expel cursed fingers after taking too much damage.

In the final act, Todo teleported Hana Kurusu, the angel who freed Gojo at the start of the Shinjuku Showdown arc. As per Okkotsu’s plan, Kurusu possesses Jacob’s Ladder, a technique that nullifies others’ cursed techniques.

The chapter ends with Kurusu preparing to unleash this attack on Sukuna.
