Megumi Fushiguro is one of Jujutsu Kaisen’s more restrained heroes. He is a fan favourite due to his laid-back demeanour and his powerful Shikigami. Fans will be able to enjoy him on a whole new level because to his little-known past and personality idiosyncrasies.
10 things you didn’t know about Megumi Fushiguro
Fans may see Megumi’s work under the strongest sorcerer, Gojo Satoru, as they prepare her to be one of the most powerful prospective Jujutsu Sorcerers throughout season 1 and the manga.
But, when Megumi isn’t training, what goes on in his mind? Is there anything else he enjoys doing except trying to protect those he believes are good?
He is a nonfiction reader.
Megumi enjoys reading factual books, according to the Official Fanbook and the first volume of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga.
While it is mentioned in his manga character profile, a substantial chunk of the fans either ignores or is unaware of the manga.
Clothing worn around the house, such as oversized shirts and sweatpants, is one of Megumi’s comforts, and he’s been spotted eating pizza in his bed with Yuji and Nobara at one time.
It’s no surprise that his hobby is a more relaxing, psychologically stimulating activity. Because he is one of the more intelligent Jujutsu Kaisen characters, he believes that nonfiction books are more reliable sources of information.
He’s a vital member of the Zen’in Clan.
Many fans are aware that Megumi is a disjointed member of the Zen’in Clan who is unconcerned with what they do or whether or not he is participating in their decisions.
However, unlike his aunts Maki and Mai Zen’in, Megumi inherited the Ten Shadows method, thus many spectators are likely unaware that they were so obsessed with him.
He not only inherited such a formidable skill, but he has also constructed the first steps of his domain, Chimera Shadow Garden, as a second-grade sorcerer.
It’s the only place he’s been able to call the Shikigami’s most powerful Shikigami, the Eight-Handed Sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga.
He is a valuable member of the clan, even among others who would prefer to take command, and he doesn’t regard it as something he has to do.
He is a food connoisseur.
Red bell peppers, a somewhat sweet vegetable, are disliked by Megumi. He enjoys foods that go well with ginger, such as chicken. In the baseball episode, he specifically mentions that he prefers chicken Nanban breast meat and Oyakodon thigh meat.
Fans only see Megumi eat when he, Nobara, and Yuji eat pizza in his room and he moans about how difficult it is to digest. When asked if they want rice or bread during a Juju Stroll, Megumi says rice without hesitation.
There’s no specific reason for why Megumi is so fussy about his cuisine, but knowing what he likes fits his persona perfectly, and it appears to come up frequently in the post-credit Juju Strolls.
He is deeply concerned.
Fans can conclude Megumi understands and wants to fulfil his job as a Jujutsu Sorceror from the moment he meets him, because he obeys Gojo’s orders even though he is annoyed, and he intends to fight even if his opponent scares him.
Because of his ideas, he stands out in the Jujutsu world, even saying, “I have faith in my own sense of morality.”
When the first- and second-years discuss the Kyoto Sister School Goodwill Event in the manga, Yuji can only offer his hand-to-hand combat as a battle option.
“If it came down to a brawl with no cursed energy involved, Itadori would win,” Megumi adds, although Panda doubts him. It’s a simple gesture, but for someone like Megumi, who doesn’t speak up unless absolutely essential, it shows that he’s relieved Yuji is still alive and has Megumi’s support.
Moments like this may be found throughout the anime and manga, and fans will notice his little smiles if they look closely enough.
He was born under the sign of Capricorn.
Megumi Fushiguro is a Capricorn and was born on December 22nd. No one ever really lives up to all of the stereotypes associated with their primary zodiac sign, often known as their sun sign.
Megumi, on the other hand, resembles a traditional Capricorn in practically every way.
Capricorns are known for their loyalty, hard labour, and stoicism. Megumi is a realistic, devoted, and stoic individual. These characteristics were evident from the first time he met Gojo Satoru, when he was a first-grader who was uninterested in Gojo’s stories about his family and future.
One of the reasons he’s a Jujutsu Kaisen fan favourite is his attitude and demeanour as he grows. He gets the job done, cares about his friends, and exudes mystery.
With a Kanji Celebrity Quiz, he dazzles.
While Megumi is private about his personal life, as Nobara has pointed out, he appears to be well-informed about what is going on in the world around him, even when it does not concern curses.
Gojo handed Nobara, Yuji, and Megumi a Kanji celebrity quiz on a Jujutsu Stroll towards the end of the manga.
Megumi loses to Yuji, which is unsurprising given Yuji’s love of movies, but she still defeats Nobara. She even says to him ahead of time that he shouldn’t brag.
Fans will never know whether this is a credit to his Kanji mastery or his celebrity knowledge. In any case, it demonstrates that he is capable of more than simply wizardry.
He Has Unexpected Theme Songs Assigned by the Creator
Instead of creating character profile pages, the developer, Gege Akutami, decided to construct a list of theme songs for each Jujutsu Kaisen character. Uchujin’s “Hakujitsumu” and Weezer’s “Island in the Sun” are Megumi’s theme tunes.
“Hakujitsumu” grows in intensity with time and has an overall sound that evokes inward growth. Fans are encouraged to assume that Megumi fantasises about a period when he can just enjoy things at his own speed in “Island In The Sun.” Both themes have been attributed to the character, and they are both surprising yet pleasant.
His First Laugh During The Finger Bearer Fight
Megumi occasionally smiles shyly in shared excitement with Yuji and Nobara. At other times, he shows that he understands how much his pals care about him. Despite this, he does not join in their laughter. In fact, until the Death Painting arc near the end of the first season, he never laughs out loud.
When Megumi fights the Yasohachi Bridge Finger Bearer curse, he takes a serious knock to the head and finds the curse is far stronger than he expected.
Megumi laughs maniacally as he builds his dominion, Chimera Shadow Garden. Most fans are hoping for a joyful laugh in the future, but this laugh revealed Megumi’s insight that he doesn’t have to sacrifice himself just because the opponent is powerful.
His given name has a special significance.
Megumi is a traditional Japanese feminine name. It essentially translates to “blessing” or “grace.”
While Megumi continuously believes he isn’t unique or that he is only at Tokyo Jujutsu High to fulfil a duty, he was given this name in the hopes that one day he would be a powerful Jujutsu Sorcerer who could save a lot of people.
Megumi’s “weird disposition,” as he describes it, may not reflect the meaning of his name, but those who know him agree that he is a godsend. Despite the fact that he chooses to be called Fushiguro, his given first name is still powerful since he is powerful.
Close Combat Techniques
Even though Megumi is a Shikigami user, and they normally battle from a distance, it is made up ofyen throughout the anime that he is outstanding in close-quarters combat. He didn’t get his abilities solely by natural ability.
He also trained with Maki and her cursed weapons in addition to Gojo. This was seen in her leadership at the Kyoto event, when they battled Hanami with the jet-black blade and three-sectioned Playful Cloud weapon.
