Tokyo No. 1 Colony, Part 6 ( (とう) (きょう) (だい) 1結界 (コロニー) Tōkyō Dai-Ichi Koronī 6?) is the one hundred and sixty-sixth chapter of Gege Akutami's Jujutsu Kaisen.

Summary

Guilty by self-admission, Yuji is sentenced to death by Judgeman. Higuruma tries to carry out the sentence but seeing someone else being falsely prosecuted makes him recall his roots.

Plot Details

Judgeman sentences Yuji to death.

While Higuruma was still in law school, he was approached by an associate he called Mr. Yoshizawa. Higuruma thought it was going to be about a proposal he submitted but Yokizawa actually wanted to try and convince Higuruma to become a judge.

In the present, Judgeman gives Yuji the Death Penalty on top of Confiscation. This transforms Higuruma's gavel into the Executioner's Sword, capable of killing its target with one cut.

Higuruma believes empathizing with people means understanding all their weaknesses. He can't help but perceive that fragility as ugly. Including Yuji, everyone is weak and ugly to Higuruma regardless of their aspirations to be better. He doesn't think there is anything more to people and compares it to shining a light in the darkness that will lead to more emptiness.

Higuruma decides not to judge a man he knows is innocent.

Yuji tries to keep Higuruma away by launching several theater chairs at his opponent. He also throws his Jujutsu High jacket to distract Higuruma and gets behind him. When Higuruma notices, Yuji throws his hoodie and manages to block Higuruma's sight for a moment. He throws a sweeping kick but Higuruma is able to above it. Yuji throws an uppercut from below at the same Higuruma slashes the Executioner's Sword down at him.

In the past conversation with Mr. Yokizawa, Higuruma refused to become a judge because he felt like he wasn't ambitious enough. He's always believed people are weak and ugly but he used to value this because it's something very unique to humans. Higuruma is reminded of this memory because Yuji confessed to a crime he didn't commit. The information submitted as evidence inside Higuruma's domain is shared with him even before he opens it. The evidence in the retrial was about Sukuna and Higuruma knows that Yuji wasn't the one who committed that crime. He just can't understand why Yuji would confess to something he didn't do.

"Didn't it feel awful?"

Higuruma willingly deactivates the Executioner's Sword and allows Yuji's uppercut to land. He's sent crashing into the seats, confusing Yuji. Before he even bothers to get up from the hit, Higuruma states that the absence of reason or control signifies non-components. He adds that Sukuna was in possession of the body and since Yuji didn't surrender control willingly, he is innocent. Yuji doesn't see it that way and he still claims responsibility for it, believing all that death only occurred because he's too weak. Higuruma understands and Yuji asks him why he deactivated his cursed technique. Higuruma gets up and replies that he remembered why he got into law in the first place. Additionally, there are still other weak people out there who need help, so Higuruma decides to let Yuji use his points.

Higuruma invites Yuji to sit down after he's gotten his clothes back on. He asks Yuji if he's ever killed anyone of his own volition. Yuji somberly responds that he has. Thinking back to how he murdered the prosecutor and judge from Keita Oe's trial, Higuruma asks Yuji if he felt awful about it as well.
