This article is about the event. For the chapter titled "Secret Execution", see Chapter 2.

Yuji Itadori's Secret Execution is an event where Yuji Itadori is sentenced to death by the higher-ups of Jujutsu High School. After careful consideration with Megumi Fushiguro, Satoru Gojo decides to instead help Yuji enroll as a student of jujutsu high.

Prologue

Following the appearance of Sukuna's finger at Sugisawa High, the higher-ups at Jujutsu High send Satoru Gojo to recover the cursed object. He quickly catches up with Megumi and asks for a status report. Megumi reveals that all curses have been dealt with but a student named Yuji actually ate Sukuna's finger and assimilated him.

Satoru tests Yuji's ability to control Sukuna using a ten-second fight. Yuji proves he can control the curse and Satoru knocks him unconscious to see if he can remain in control until he awakens. Megumi knows that regulations state that Yuji should be executed, but Megumi doesn't wish to see him die. Gojo sensei respects his precious student's wishes and agrees to do something about the execution. [1]

Trial

Sentence Suspended

Yuji awakens and realizes he's been restrained to a chair trapped inside a room sealed in by many talismans. Across from him is Satoru Gojo, who reminds Yuji of their previous encounter after revealing that his secret execution has been set. [2]

"Why not kill him after he consumes the rest of Sukuna?"

Despite Megumi's pleas, apparently Yuji is still set to be executed, discoursing the young man. However, Satoru reveals that his sentence has been suspended indefinitely. He takes a moment to reveal another one of Sukuna's fingers and teaches Yuji about it. The fingers are all but indestructible but now they can each be devoured by Yuji. Once they manage to assimilate all of Sukuna's remains within Yuji, then he will be executed in order to do away with Sukuna.

This is the agreement Satoru was able to come up with. He lets Yuji go and gives him the choice to die now or after taking Sukuna into his body. [3] After visiting his friends in the hospital, Yuji returns to Satoru and asks about how curses affect the lives of civilians. Yuji reminds himself of his grandfather's wish that he help people and decides to help defeat Sukuna.

Yuji eats the finger Satoru presented to him and suppresses Sukuna's influence. This confirms to Satoru that Yuji has an ability that only appears once every thousand years or so. Yuji still isn't happy about being executed and says he will decide how he's going to go out. Impressed, Satoru admits Yuji is growing on him and tells the young man to pack his things. Yuji asks where they're going, and Megumi suddenly appears to tell them it's time for Yuji to go to the Tokyo Jujutsu High. [4]

Enrolling at Jujutsu High

Principal Yaga tests Yuji's conviction.

Yuji travels to Tokyo Jujutsu High with Gojo sensei and learns he still has one trial to pass if he wishes to stage off his execution. Yuji has an interview with the principal that could possibly deny him entry into the school. He fears this might mean the Principal will execute him on the spot.

They arrive at the meeting eight minutes late thanks to Gojo, so the principal is already irritated. Even so, Yuji is thrown off because Principal Yaga is crafting "cute" stuff. Yaga asks Yuji why he's here and the young man misunderstands the question. The principal wants to understand why Yuji wishes to learn Jujutsu and become a Shaman. Yuji says that it was a last request from someone close to him to help other people.

This answer dissatisfies Yaga, who says that Yuji shouldn't fight as a request to someone else. He disqualifies Yuji and uses his cursed corpse to attack Yuji. The curse infused doll attacks with a powerful punch that Yuji manages to block with his backpack. Until the Principal gets a proper answer, Cathy the doll will continue to attack.

Yuji proves he belongs at Jujujtsu High.

Yuji declares that it was his grandfather's last request and strikes Cathy back. The doll simply bounces off the wall and ricochets into Yuji, slamming him into a nearby wall. The principal claims that Yuji's family still qualifies as someone else. Yaga explains that a shaman's job is extremely dangerous and is only for those who are slightly crazy. He asks if it will be Yuji's grandfather's fault when he dies.

Yuji thinks about the principal's question, but only long enough for Cathy to strike him down again. Yaga says no Shaman dies without regret and at this rate, Yuji will only end up cursing his beloved grandfather. Yuji restrains the cursed doll with his raw strength and says consuming Sukuna is something only he can do. He believes that doing nothing would be more of a regret than not at least trying. Yuji proudly states that he refuses to regret the way he lives.

Satisfied, Principal Yaga declares Yuji passed and asks Satoru to show the student to his dorm. He also accidentally forgets to stop the incantation, so Cathy gets one final surprise hit on Yuji before he leaves. [5]

Aftermath

Satoru shows Yuji to his allotted room in the dormitory. The young student is elated with how spacious it is. While there, they discuss whether Yuji would be better off staying put or being in the field. Yuji strongly prefers the latter, a choice Satoru strongly supports.

Satoru claims that as Sukuna's vessel, Yuji is going to be instrumental in locating the remaining fingers. While Yuji is unsure of whether Sukuna will cooperate with them in finding his fingers, Gojo sensei is still convinced that they can come to an agreement on that matter.

Megumi lives next door and he comes out after hearing their conversation. Yuji and Megumi's sensei informs them that they are going to Morioka Station the next day to pick up their classmate, the third first-year.[6]
