Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 195 Recap
Not one, but two new players of the culling game are introduced in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 195; Daigo Hagane, who is all too interested in finding a katana, and Miyo Rokujushi, who's very keen to find a sumo opponent.
To that effect, he asks everyone around him for a round, but no man, woman, or child accepts to fight him.
His interest in sumo is so big that he breaks into an old woman's house when he hears sumo on the TV.
The elderly woman informs him that the match he's so keen on is taking place in Ryogoku, Tokyo, so he sets out to go there, even though he doesn't seem entirely sure where it is!
Back in the present, Noritoshi, who knows that Maki still needs to escape the colony, is baffled by the sudden turn of events that makes his own battle against Naoya a stalemate.
Daido is revealed to be the incarnation of a - as of now nameless - but incomparable swordsman, so skilled that he uses his swordsmanship and no cursed energy.
His bewitched blade emanates not cursed energy, but pure lethality. Even though he's unable to see the cursed spirit Naoya, he charges against him, not caring about any consequences, setting the tone for another action-packed episode!

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 196 Spoilers
At the time of writing, no raw scans or spoilers for Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 196 have been released. However, fans have plenty of speculations about the newcomers!
Will Daido Hagane and Miyo Rokujushi bring something new to the table?
For now, we can only theorize, but if you want to refresh your memory on the culling game's progression so far, a fan has made a chart that includes the two new characters:
In the next chapter of the shonen manga, we expect a huge fight between Naoya and Daido Hagane.
The latter's overconfidence is a bit jarring, given that he can't even see his opponent, but does this at least mean that Noritoshi is safe for now? Stay tuned to find out!
