In the latest episode of Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto were entrusted with a crucial mission by Lord Tengen, their objective was to safely deliver the Star Plasma Vessel, a person named Riko Amanai, to Tengen’s presence. This task was assigned to them by Masamichi Yaga, a teacher at the time.
Yaga explained to Gojo and Geto that their mission was to protect Riko Amanai from assassins who aimed to trigger Tengen’s evolution. But what exactly is a Star Plasma Vessel, and what role does it play in assisting Tengen? These questions raise intrigue and pave the way for further exploration of the storyline.
Jujutsu Kaisen: What is a Star Plasma Vessel’s significance?
Lord Tengen, an immortal sorcerer who has lived since the Nara period, possesses the ability to live indefinitely. However, despite their immortality, Tengen’s physical body still ages. Every 500 years, Tengen’s body undergoes a natural process of attempting to evolve into a higher form. Unfortunately, this evolution causes a decline in the user’s self-awareness and will, leaving them as a mere shell of their former self.
This potential evolution poses a significant concern for Tengen and the authorities at Jujutsu High, as it could bring about disaster for both the institution and the world at large. To prevent such a calamity, Tengen must merge with a suitable Star Plasma Vessel every 500 years during the evolution period. By doing so, they can rewrite the information within their body, halting the evolution until the next 500-year cycle.
Star Plasma Vessels are young women who possess the potential to assist Tengen in refreshing their immortality through the merging process. In Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, Riko Amanai is identified as a highly capable vessel, and thus Gojo and Geto are sent to retrieve her for the purpose of merging with Tengen. This ensures that Tengen’s evolution is suppressed and their immortality is maintained.
With regards to the vessels for Lord Tengen, it is important to note that each vessel possesses a unique potential that sets them apart from one another. While Riko Amanai is the vessel currently focused on in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, there is another vessel that has made an appearance in the series: Yuki Tsukumo.
Why were people targeting the Star Plasma Vessel In Jujutsu Kaisen?
There are two factions vying for possession of the Star Plasma Vessel in Jujutsu Kaisen: Group Q and the Star Religious Group. Group Q consists of jujutsu sorcerers who seek to overthrow the jujutsu world by causing Lord Tengen to lose their sanity or reasoning.
On the other hand, the Star Religious Group comprises non-jujutsu users who revere Lord Tengen and desire their true form to emerge. They hold the belief that Tengen merging with the Star Plasma Vessel would taint their purity.
