Jujutsu Kaisen S2 Ep 41 began on a suspicious note since in the previous installment we watched a mysterious shadow approaching Haruta while Megumi appeared dead. So, when I watched Megumi taking small steps and walking away from Haruta it gave me an idea about this montage being an introduction to what we are about to watch.
Also, the flashback briefed us that, Megumi is also one of the strongest Jujutsu Sorcerors alive on earth.
So, without any further let us get going with-

Jujutsu Kaisen S2 Ep 41 – The Narrative
Trapped in a dire situation and on the brink of death at the hands of Haruta, Megumi resorts to a desperate measure. He unveils his last-resort technique, Mahoraga, the elusive shikigami that has never been subdued by any previous wielder. Initiating the ritual, Megumi is swiftly incapacitated, leaving Haruta on the verge of defeat until Sukuna intervenes to save him.
Recognizing the perilous nature of Megumi’s state, Sukuna decides to harness the power of Mahoraga for his own future machinations, engaging in a fierce and destructive battle across Shibuya.
As the clash intensifies, Sukuna gradually comprehends Mahoraga’s ability to adapt to attacks. In a final bid to obliterate the formidable shikigami, Sukuna triggers his Domain Expansion: Malevolent Shrine, ruthlessly obliterating everything within a 140-meter radius, including Mahoraga and those caught in its path.
Haruta, attempting to escape, meets his demise as the culmination of his cursed technique and his earlier confrontation with Nanami finally catches up with him. Sukuna, aware that time is running out, swiftly transports the unconscious Megumi out of the city for healing.
Upon returning, Sukuna presents the aftermath of the devastating battle to Yuji, who is profoundly traumatized by the destruction and loss of life caused by Sukuna. Meanwhile, a partially burned Nanami roams the subway, bearing the scars of the intense conflict.
Things I Liked From Jujutsu Kaisen S2 Ep 41 Thunderclap Part 2
- Intense Battle and High Stakes: The last episode gave us a vivid description of what took place between Megumi and Haruta. However, the subsequent clash between Sukuna and Mahoraga, adds an intense and high-stakes dimension to the storyline. It was a much more horrific fight that happened in the previous installment for sure. Anime Fans might have drooled over these epic battles. Also can’t ignore the vivid portrayal of the massacred montage.
- Unveiling of Powerful Techniques: The introduction of Mahoraga and Sukuna’s Malevolent Shrine as formidable and previously unseen techniques adds an element of surprise and excitement in Jujutsu Kaisen S2 Ep 41 Thunderclap Part 2. Fans often enjoy discovering new and powerful abilities within the context of the story. And the makers adeptly positioned the demand in the Shibuya Arc.
- Character Development: The context hints at character development, especially for Megumi, Sukuna, and Yuji. Megumi’s desperate use of Mahoraga, Sukuna’s strategic thinking, and Yuji’s emotional response contribute to the evolving nature of the characters, making them more dynamic and engaging. I loved the instance when Megumi felt that he might not be able to keep his promise of meeting Yuji, just before releasing Mahoraga. He was sad yet he was excited. Sukuna is the epitome of a villainous persona. He is brilliant and quite meticulous. Therefore plays the game of overpowering the Shibuya ARC pretty mesmerizingly. And as for Yuji, I don’t know what will happen to his mental condition right now. But this golden boy is surprisingly amazing.
- Unexpected Twists: The unexpected twists, such as Sukuna saving Haruta and later believing in using Megumi’s technique are uncalled for. Further, the tragic fate of Haruta and the traumatizing impact on Yuji, add layers of complexity to the narrative. Anime Fans love and enjoy this unpredictability and emotionally charged development in a story that was neatly placed making Jujutsu Kaisen S2 Ep 41 Thunderclap Part 2 super duper entertaining.
- Visual Imagery: The striking description of the battles, the activation of powerful techniques, and the resulting destruction contribute to strong visual imagery. This for sure enhances the viewer’s immersion in the story, making it more captivating. I felt devasted by the visual representation of Yuji’s facial expression at the end of Jujutsu Kaisen S2 Ep 41 Thunderclap Part 2. It was so apt.
