Jujutsu Kaisen It is one of the most popular shonen manganimes in recent years, surpassing giants like One Piece and My Hero Academia on multiple occasions. Gege Akutami’s work conquered action lovers through very intense combats, impressive powers and some very charismatic characters, but, What about your story?
For many people (including myself), Jujutsu Kaisen’s narrative is not up to par with the other sections and leaves a lot to be desired in terms of skill explanations and plot twists. The surprise comes with the confirmation that this is something intentional and that the author found inspiration within the Fate universe.
Jujutsu Kaisen owes a lot to Fate/Zero
- According to the insider Go_Jover (which in turn extracts user information BocchiZaYoru), the author of Jujutsu Kaisen considers that Fate/Zero was a huge influence for him when creating the manga❗❗❗
- Akutami-sensei always loved the way Nasu Kinoko (creator of Fate) skips “the explanation of the plot” to build it exclusively around entertainment😯😯
- “It’s like they’re telling us that if we don’t understand the story, we should just look it up on our own.”commented Akutami in a past interview
- And in case you are interested, The mangaka’s favorite character from all of Fate/Zero is Gilgameshand he loved seeing how in said series they showed him more relentlessly moralistic✅
It had always seemed to me that The story of Jujutsu Kaisen goes too much to the point, explains many powers that way and introduces quite questionable script twists., and I have finally discovered that there is a reason behind it. Do you think Akutami-sensei’s approach is correct? Are the plots built around entertainment to your liking?
