Fans expect "Jujutsu Kaisen" Chapter 194 to explain more about Maki Zenin's powers and Naoya Zenin's new Cursed Spirit after some confusion in the previous chapter. Creator Gege Akutami seems to confuse his readers about these two, so they're now expecting to see some clarification about it.
As many question Maki's survival, they also want to know more about her powers. Alternatively, fans want to learn how Naoya's Cursed Technique evolved and what it entails in "Jujutsu Kaisen" Chapter 194.
Sure, fans know it's not time yet for Maki to die, but the next chapter will seem to determine her future. Akutami has been known for randomly killing off characters and the culling game has featured sudden deaths.
However, Maki's arc is yet to end. The manga is halfway through her story and she still has a lot to tell before her potential fully materializes.
Hence, SportsKeeda noted that if Akutami decides to kill her off in "Jujutsu Kaisen" Chapter 194, it will be a tragic mistake for the series.
Alternatively, no one knows the scope and details of Naoya's new power and Cursed Technique. After showing his final form following the Cursed Womb, he looks far stronger than before.
So, will Akutami kill off Maki after Naoya's transformation? By the looks of it, Naoya and Noritoshi will still face each other and the next chapter will confirm if Maki will die or not.
Meanwhile, "Jujutsu Kaisen" Chapter 193 saw Naoya evolve into a powerful curse, per IBTimes. He revealed he returned to kill Maki, knowing he was full of hatred toward his enemies in the Culling Game.
Maki and Noritoshi were left with no choice but to work together to fight off Naoya. Naoya looked surprised that Noritoshi survived his attacks, noting he was indeed a clan head.
Noritoshi revealed that he could have lost his arm and head if he didn't dodge Naoya's attack with blood. He added that he couldn't let his guard downs as he would die with just one wrong move.
Noritoshi knew he needed to step up his game to win this battle. Maki, alternatively, appeared and also avoided the next hit.
She then warned Noritoshi to be careful of Naoya's evolved form. Sure, Naoya fell into a curse, but Noritoshi knew he had retained his true personality.
Maki added he could use his cursed technique, making Noritoshi realize he could be the fastest zenin with his projection sorcery. Naoya then froze the air for a second and hit it to explode in the face of his two opponents.
What happens from here can be seen when "Jujutsu Kaisen" Chapter 194 drops on Saturday, August 21, after Weekly Shonen Jump's one-week break.
