The Zenin Clan ( (ぜん) (いん) () Zen'in Ke?) is the one hundred and thirty-eighth chapter of Gege Akutami's Jujutsu Kaisen.


The Zenin Family gathers for the reading of Naobito Zenin's will. His most talented son, Naoya expects to inherit his position. However, his expectations are shattered by a special clause that will make Megumi head of the clan. He plans to take back what's rightfully his and plans on hunting down Megumi in Tokyo, the same place Yuji and Choso have chosen to remain following the Shibuya Incident.

Plot Details

The upper echelon of the Zenin clan await Naobito's status.

At the Zenin estate, after being critical of his dying cousin Maki, Naoya joins Ogi and Jinichi as they wait for the news about Naobito's death. Naoya criticizes his two relatives and causes them to become violent. After Naoya coyly defuses the situation he created, a man named Furudate enters and informs the three that Naobito has passed away. He reads Naobito's will and announces that Naoya will become the 27th head of the Zenin Family and inherit all its assets once he is approved by either Ogi or Jinichi.

Naoya's reaction to the new head of the Zenin clan.

However, Furudate then reveals that there is a clause based on a written agreement with Toji Fushiguro which states that if Satoru Gojo has died or become mentally incapacitated, Megumi Fushiguro will assume the role instead. Naoya is left furious and knows that Ogi and Jinichi will prefer having anyone other than himself as head of the clan. He eventually learns that Megumi is looking for Yuji Itadori in Tokyo and that Yuji is Sukuna's vessel, telling a female attendant to inform the higher-ups that he will kill Yuji personally. In addition, he plans to take advantage of the chaos in Tokyo and to kill Megumi as well.

"What will you do?"

In a flashback, Yuki is on the phone with someone and apologizes for not making a move sooner, saying that she was just keeping an eye on things. She coyly remarks that she may not necessarily be on their side, adding that she just wants to rid the world of cursed spirits. She says that she and her comrades will take responsibility for delivering the kids who were present, finally revealing that she plans to confront Tengen.

Yuji and Choso head out to exorcise curses.

As a despondent Yuji sits alone on a large staircase, Choso approaches him and asks about his injuries. Yuji says that he is fine because of Sukuna, who he can tell is growing stronger. Choso says that he will be fine by himself while he collects the remains of Shoso and the others, telling Yuji that he can return to Jujutsu High. Yuji, however, replies that Sukuna has something planned for Megumi and that he himself has killed too many people, reminding Choso that he killed both Eso and Kechizu. Choso calmly says that it was a misunderstanding and that forgiveness isn't involved when it comes to brothers. As the two head out to deal with more cursed spirits, Naoya and Yuta are each seen moving out to track Yuji and kill him.
