Assault ( (きゅう) (しゅう) Kyūshū?) is the seventh episode of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime adaptation.

Summary

Gojo comes under fire when a cursed spirit suddenly marks him for assassination. However, the battle that ensues proves to the volcanic curse Jogo that Satoru Gojo's abilities are on a higher level than his own. Seeing this as an opportunity, Gojo brings Yuji to the battlefield to teach him about jujutsu battles and Domain Expansion.

Plot Details

The head of a volcano erupts behind Gojo.

While on their way to meet with the principal, Gojo detects a disturbance and asks the driver to stop the car. Confused, Ijichi stops the vehicle and lets Gojo out in the middle of the road while asking if this is some kind of test. Gojo refutes this idea and makes Ijichi drive off, preparing for the disturbance to reach him any moment. Right on cue, Jogo appears above the sorcerer and attempts to crush him.

Gojo avoids the cursed spirit as he crashes into the road, cracking the pavement. He asks who this curse is but Jogo responds by creating a volcano head that blasts Gojo with a magma explosion from behind. Jogo believes that the deed is done, but the strongest sorcerer warns him not to write him off as he wipes away the ash and lava from his forcefield.

Jogo learns about the "Infinity"

Gojo is surprised to meet a curse that can communicate clearly and believes that in terms of his sheer amount of cursed energy Jogo surpasses Sukuna at his current level, meaning he's an unregistered special grade. He tells Jogo that special grades can't keep popping up or it ruins the meaning of the rank. The cursed spirit suggests that Gojo is losing heart, but on the contrary things are just starting to get fun for the sorcerer.

Jogo chose a place to fight that was devoid of people to avoid sorcerer's backing up Gojo. He uses Ember Insects to attack the sorcerer but Gojo stops them in their tracks. The insects use sound to explode, which Gojo avoids but the volcanic cursed spirit acts quickly to strike the sorcerer with two more flaming attacks. Once again, Jogo considers himself the victor too early when in reality his attacks have had no effects at all.

Cursed Technique Reversal: Red!

Confused, Jogo asks what's happening. Gojo convinces him to touch the "Infinity" that exists between them, showing him that their hands can't touch no matter how much the curse pushes his forward. The sorcerer taunts Jogo before pummeling him with Jujutsu and finishing his combo of attacks by unleashing the divergence and convergence of infinity Cursed Technique Reversal: Red.

This high release of energy sends Jogo tumbling through the forest where Gojo continues to beat on him before kicking the volcanic curse into a nearby lake. This makes Jogo realize that Geto was correct when he said Jogo would die if he tried to kill Gojo. The sorcerer disappears for a moment in order to bring Yuji to the battlefield.

Gojo brings Yuji to the battlefield to learn about jujutsu.

Gojo quickly went to go get Yuji and discovered his new protégé advancing through his training quicker than expected. He takes Yuji out by explaining he was going to teach him about the pinnacle of jujutsu battles; Domain Expansion. He teleports Yuji to Jogo's location and explains that his student will be watching in order to learn from this exchange. Jogo suggests the sorcerer is a fool for bringing in someone who can hold him back, but Gojo believes the curse is too weak to make a difference.

This enrages Jogo, who literally gets a hot head and spews flames from each of the volcanic ports on his head. Yuji is intimated but Gojo reassures him that he'll be okay as long as he stays close. Jogo activates his Domain Expansion, trapping the sorcerers inside the Coffin of the Iron Mountain. Domain Expansion buffs the user's abilities and imbues the user's innate technique into it as well. Additionally all abilities unleashed within a Domain Expansion will always hit their target.

Jogo activates Domain Expansion.

Gojo explains that you can repel the automatic hit of a Domain Expansion by countering with a cursed technique or by escaping the Domain, but neither of these methods are recommended. Jogo knows his Domain will nullify the infinity protecting Gojo. He's upset that he's being looked down on by a human despite the clear difference in strength. At the same time, Gojo reveals that the most effective way to counter Domain Expansion is by casting a Domain themselves.

Jogo attempts to attack but Gojo activates Domain Expansion: Unlimited Void. This traps Jogo in a space that feeds him all the information in the universe at once, paralyzing him. While the curse is immobilized, Gojo decapitates him and dispels the barrier. He attempts to interrogate Jogo to find out who sent him as Geto and Hanami watch from afar. Geto can't be seen, so he leaves Hanami alone to clean up the mess.

Gojo's Domain overtakes Jogo's mind.

Before Gojo can get any information out of the curse or exorcise him, a spear-like plant pierces the ground near Gojo and spawns a field of flowers. This momentarily distracts Yuji and Gojo, long enough for a wooden monster to attack the former. This gives Hanami the chance to grab Jogo's head and disappear completely, impressing Gojo with the ability to hide his presence.

A new curse agrees with Geto's plan to seal Satoru Gojo.

Yuji apologizes for letting them get away and Gojo replies that he wants Yuji and all his peers to be able to exorcise curses that powerful. For the next month, Yuji and Gojo will fight for training and then the student will go on missions to prepare for the Goodwill Event. However, Yuji has no idea what the Goodwill Event is. Meanwhile, Principal Yaga is annoyed with Ijichi because once again Gojo is late to their meeting.

Geto returns to the curses hideout, a Domain hidden behind an apartment door. He meets up with the groups leader, Mahito, who asks about Jogo. Hanami, holding Jogo's head, follows close behind and enters the area. Mahito says he's glad to see that they're safe, much to Jogo's annoyance. Now that he understands, Geto tells Jogo that they will carry out Gojo's sealing on October 31st in Shibuya. Mahito agrees and states that they should be cunning about it, like true humans would be.

Juju Stroll

Geto and Mahito are exercising next to Jogo's head. The volcano cursed spirit wonders what they were doing, before Geto clarifies they are doing Brazilian calisthenics. Mahito and Geto then begin playing soccer with Jogo's head acting as the ball and Hanami acting as the goalkeeper. Eventually, Mahito manages to score a point, causing Jogo to say to himself that he's going to kill Geto and Mahito later.

  • When Gojo stops the Ember Insects with his Infinity technique in the anime, the force from the bugs suddenly halting causes collateral damage to the road.
  • In the anime, when Jogo attempts to finish Gojo off up close, he does so after going behind his back, whereas in the manga, the attempt to finish the sorcerer off directly followed his attack towards the opponent's head.
    • Due to this change, the position of the two fighters on top of the short hill is mirrored from the manga.
  • The line Jogo says about Gojo's supposed defeat being deplorable isn't given any special treatment in the anime, whereas this line got a whole panel dedicated to it in the manga.

  • Cursed Technique Reversal: Red is given greater visuals in the anime.
  • The anime greatly extends the scuffle between Gojo and Jogo in the forest.
  • In the anime, Gojo comments on the current fight being a perfect opportunity after Jogo lands in the lake.
  • When Gojo brings Yuji to the battlefield, the anime has Sukuna's vessel shake his arms and head from side to side.
  • In the manga, it is implied that Yuji is watching "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" movie, while in the anime it is made explicit.
  • In the anime, the comment Yuji makes about not sinking into the water is moved to before he asks Gojo about suddenly changing locations.
  • Jogo getting pissed off at Gojo's comment about him being weak is even more exaggerated than it was in the manga.
  • Coffin of the Iron Mountain is given an extensive formation sequence in the anime, whereas it appeared instantly in the manga.
  • Yuji exclaiming about the hotness of the Domain is slightly more comedically exaggerated in the anime.
  • The anime uses a variety of JRPG-like visuals done in a 4:3 aspect ratio to explain some aspects of the Domain Expansion technique.
  • In the anime, Jogo attempts to finish Gojo off using a giant lava wave, whereas it's not clear how exactly he wanted to kill him in the manga.
  • Unlimited Void is given an extensive formation sequence in the anime, whereas it appeared almost instantly in the manga.
  • Gojo ripping Jogo's read off is explicitly shown in the anime, whereas the manga implied he used his Limitless technique to decapitate the cursed spirit.
  • When Hanami responds to Geto's remark in the anime, the former jujutsu sorcerer doesn't halt like he does in the manga.
  • The anime has Jogo responding to Gojo's questions in a dismissive manner, whereas he stayed silent in the manga.
  • Yuji and Gojo are given comedic reaction faces when the teenager asks about the Goodwill event.

  • The sequence of Geto approaching the special grade curses' hideout is extended in the anime.
  • The anime has Mahito reading "Cloud Giant" when Geto walks into the Domain, only to close and lower it later in the scene, implying he is done reading it for now, whereas the manga shows Mahito holding the open book already lowered, implying he temporarily stopped reading it before the former sorcerer walked in.
  • At the end of the episode, Mahito is smirking in a much more obvious way than he did in the manga.

Trivia

  • Due to the nature of how Hanami's speech is done in the anime, it is actually possible to decipher it. In this episode, he says: "We do. We're the true humans, after all."
  • This is the first episode where the Juju Stroll scene is focused on the villains, rather than the heroes.
  • In the post credit scene, the anime makes a reference to an iconic technique from the football-themed series Captain Tsubasa.
