Jujutsu Kaisen debuts one of its most frightening powers


Jujutsu Kaisen isn’t the kind of show you want to watch if you’re gross. The manga is just as bad, if not worse, because creator Gege Akutami isn’t afraid to push boundaries with his artwork. These days, that’s proven quite easily with the Culling Game. And now the manga has gone one step further by detailing its most chilling curse yet.

The situation was brought to life by a new cursed spirit that no one needed to know about. As the Culling Games welcomed Yuta to the field, fans watched as the boy slayed his best players. Once the shaman is gone, the Kurourushi spirit has debuted, and the curse is a literal cockroach with all the powers you’d expect.

“His name is Kurourushi,” the manga shares once Yuta encounters the new enemy. “[It] has an endless appetite and eating stimulates parthenogenesis. Barely awake, Kurourushi found himself starving. Okkotsu interrupted his meal, so Kurourushi’s instinct pushed him to devour it.”

As you can see Kurourushi is not your average wizard for these games. Not only is he a cursed spirit, but the Jujutsu Kaisen fighter is a huge cockroach that can control a swarm of insects. These cockroaches feed on wizards to gain more curse energy, and these swarms all feed on Kurourushi’s main body. He uses this power to fight and reproduce asexually. And when things get too tough, well – Kurourushi can just go into hibernation to save his strength.

Now Yuta is on the curse radar, link text. It will be interesting to see how the Special Grade Sorcerer deals with his new enemy. After all, Kurourushi locked himself in on the man, and Yuta won’t be able to help Gojo with that cockroach following in his footsteps.

What do you think of Kurourushi’s terrifying powers? What would your worst fear look like if it itself became a curse? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB.
