The Cursed Womb Arc (
The Detention Center Case
In West Tokyo City, a cursed womb carrying a potential special grade curse appears suddenly. While Satoru Gojo is away, Kiyotaka Ijichi sends in Gojo's three students to rescue potential survivors of the said event.
Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara all go on their first mission as a trio together. However, by the time they arrive, the cursed womb has already produced a special grade cursed spirit and slaughtered all the inhabitants of the remote detention facility.
Megumi believes that the inmates can't be redeemed or saved, prompting an argument with Yuji. Nobara is then suddenly separated from them and the special grade curse appears from nowhere. Yuji decides to hold it off alone while Megumi goes to save Nobara.
Once Megumi and Nobara are both outside of the center and is safe, Yuji unleashes Sukuna to slay the curse. However, Yuji is unable to immediately regain his consciousness. Free with Yuji's body, Sukuna snatches his heart out and takes Yuji's body hostage.
Megumi fights Sukuna one on one and reveals that he saved Yuji because he wants to save good people. Yuji manages to reclaim his body thanks to Megumi's words but dies as a result.

- This is currently the shortest arc in the manga, both in terms of the publication duration (lasting for 24 days from April 9 to May 2 of 2018) and the amount of chapters (4). It technically matches the Cursed Child Arc in terms of the number of chapters; however, due to the difference in page count between Jump GIGA and Weekly Shonen Jump, it is significantly shorter in terms of the content included.
