Voices from the past ring in his ears with every step, from the familiar voice of his grandfather to the taunts of cursed spirits. Yuji is still in a daze after regaining control of his body from the King of Curses, Sukuna, and he struggles to come to terms with everything that’s happened in the past few hours. Nearby, another figure trudges through the dark hallways of the station, footfalls echoing across the vinyl floors. But, in his mind, Kento Nanami feels a refreshing ocean breeze and warm sunshine caress his face. He walks along glittering sand, the waves calmly crashing beside him. In reality, Nanami barely clings to life as he staggers along, horrifically burned by Jogo’s fiery touch. He passes cursed spirit Mahito without sensing his presence. Final Fight Nanami descends further into the station. He finally opens his remaining eye in the bright fluorescent light and sees dozens of monstrous, transfigured humans standing in front of him. His mind is still elsewhere as he daydreams about building a home on a secluded beach in Malaysia. He briefly wonders what happened to the other Jujutsu Sorcerers. As exhausted as he is, Nanami’s body takes over by instinct, disposing of the transfigured creatures one after another. RELATED: A Comprehensive Guide to the Folklore of JUJUTSU KAISEN In his daydream, Nanami smiles and relaxes as he breathes in the ocean air, body whole and healed. In Shibuya, each swing is an effort. As Nanami cleaves through the creatures, Yuji hears the sounds of the struggle and runs ahead. Nanamin? As the last transfigured human falls, Nanami finally senses Mahito behind him. The cursed spirit had been there the entire time. He gently touches Nanami’s back, and the diligent Jujutsu Sorcerer knows his end is here. Nanami sees his high school friend Yu Haibara, a sorcerer slain by a cursed spirit years ago, standing before him – just as Yuji finds them.

Nanami turns his head to Yuji and says with a peaceful smile, “You take it from here.” Mahito blasts Nanami apart. You Are a Jujutsu Sorcerer Yuji stares in shock for a moment before he screams and rushes toward Mahito, slipping on the gore from Nanami’s last stand as he runs. The cruel cursed spirit releases transfigured human after transfigured human, aware that Yuji hates to hurt innocent creatures. Mahito fights with relish, mocking and tormenting the young Jujutsu Sorcerer to throw him off his game. He cuts a deep gash across Yuji’s face. Yuji asks the cursed spirit how he can destroy countless lives; Mahito grins and only answers that the two of them are the same. Yuji realizes that Nanami wouldn’t lose himself to anger and taps into his cursed energy with renewed focus.

The Jujutsu Sorcerer and the special-grade cursed spirit trade devastating blows as the wall closes in. Finally, Yuji breaks through it, and their fight continues. Mahito throws blades, fleshy projectiles, fists and feet (and lips?) at Yuji, who dodges and counterattacks. Yuji turns a corner and comes upon two humans. He starts to speak with them and realizes it’s one of Mahito’s tricks. Mahito emerges from the mouth of one of the men. Insurance As Mahito turns the other human into a grotesque sword, he recalls how he had laid a trap to keep Yuji off-balance earlier in the evening. The cursed spirit divided into two Mahitos; one went into the lower station while the other went streetside. As Yuji fights one Mahito a little after 11:00 PM, the other faces an opponent at the same time in a Shibuya alleyway. It’s Nobara Kugisaki. RELATED: The Characters of JUJUTSU KAISEN, Explained Nobara fearlessly faces the cursed spirit. She mocks him and Mahito takes an instant liking to her. The Jujutsu Sorcerer draws her weapon and quickly recalls the intel she has on the cursed spirit. Nobara strikes first. Mahito, aware that the Jujutsu High student is close to Yuji, forms a new plan: he’s going to drag her corpse to the young sorcerer to completely break his spirit. But you should never underestimate Nobara… What’s next for Yuji, Nobara and the other Jujutsu Sorcerers?
