What Is the Shibuya Incident in Jujutsu Kaisen?

Termed one of the longest-running arcs, The Shibuya Incident runs from Jujutsu Kaisen Chapters 79 through 136.

The arc is set in Shibuya which is a special ward in Tokyo. On October 31, 2018, Pseudo-Geto or Kenjaku’s evil plan gets rolling.

A curtain is cast and several civilians are trapped in the Shibuya subway system. Meanwhile, various bands of sorcerers are dispatched to handle the situation.

Pseudo-Geto knows that the Shibuya subway system will be where he can execute his plan to seal Satoru Gojo.

Meanwhile, Gojo faces Jogo, Hanami, and Choso and a fierce battle begins. However, ultimately, Gojo ends up getting sealed inside the Prison Realm.

The Shibuya Incident arc showcases several prominent places that play a key role in the arc including Aoyama Cemetery in Harajuku, Shoto Bunkamura Street, Metropolitan Expressway, and more.

The curses believe their best strategy against Gojo would be to corner him in a crowded place.

However, Gojo removes his blindfold and vows to beat Hanami first, as the plant curse has yet to learn its lesson.

But Geto’s arrival throws off Gojo and the latter falls into the trap of the Prison Realm.
