Of course, Yuji gained a lot of strength after he ingested all these fingers, but he had to face a terrible consequence because of it. He temporarily lost control of his body for approximately half an hour, during which Sukuna went rampant. He caused a massacre in Shibuya. As a result, countless individuals had to lose their lives, including Mimiko and Jogo.
How many fingers did Yuji eat in the anime?
This tragic development stems from the unique and inexplicable connection between Yuji Itadori and Sukuna. Yuji, the vessel, carries Sukuna within him. And, he possesses the rare ability to suppress Sukuna’s formidable and evil influence. Despite Yuji’s control, however, a very crucial condition remains. The stipulation was evident in the recent episode of Jujutsu Kaisen. It states that to maintain dominance over Sukuna, Yuji must ingest his cursed fingers individually. As such, if he consumes multiple fingers simultaneously, Sukuna regains power and control temporarily.
