Jujutsu Kaisen” is a manga series by Akutami Gege based on curses and the sorcerers who exorcise them, and has been serialized in “Shukan Shonen Jump” (Shueisha) since 2018.
Itadori Eugene, a high school student living in Sendai, is transferred to the Tokyo Metropolitan College of Spiritual Arts and Sciences after he has taken a double-sided Tsuina, a special grade of curse, into his body, and the story is about his becoming a master of the art of exorcism.
Many popular characters appear in the story, including Megumi Fushiguro and No-Rose Kugisaki, Itadori’s classmates, Gojyo Satoru, the strongest sorcerer and teacher who guides Itadori and his classmates, and Tatehito Nanami, a sorcerer who is Gojyo’s KO-HAI.
My Hero Academia” is a coming-of-age manga by Kohei Horikoshi featuring a boy who aspires to be a hero.
We asked the audience which of the famous lines from the manga “Jujutsu Kaisen” left the greatest impression on them, and the results were as follows.

The quote that won first place was this line from Gojyo, which has such an impact that it can be said to represent “Jujutsu Kaisen”.
It goes without saying that Gojyo, who possesses both “unlimited sorcery” and “six eyes,” is the strongest, but the fact that he says it himself shows Gojyo’s character. His joking words and actions are conspicuous, but his power is definitely genuine. It was a quote that could not be more persuasive.
Quote: 「大丈夫 僕最強だから」(Daijyoubu Ore Saikyo Dakara)
Translation: Don’t worry! I’m crazy strong.
大丈夫 (Daijyoubu): Don’t worry
僕 (Ore): I
最強(Saikyo): crazy strong
The second place was given to this line uttered by the main character, Itadori, when he decided to transfer to a sorcery high school. Itadori was to be executed for eating the fingers of Ryomen Sukuna, a special grade of curse, but at Gojyo’s suggestion, he chose to die after taking in all the fingers as a vessel that could withstand the Tsuina.
In his meeting with President Yaga, he declared that he was the only one who could fulfill his mission as a vessel of Tsuina, but he did not want to live his life running away from it, and uttered these words. Itadori’s determination can be felt in these very passionate lines.
Quote: 「自分が死ぬ時のことは分からんけど 生き様で後悔はしたくない」
(Jibun ga shinu toki no koto ha wakaran kedo, ikizama de koukai ha shitaku nai)
Translation: “I don’t know what I’ll do when I die, but I don’t want to regret how I lived.”
自分 (Jibun): you
Ranked third on the list is this line from Gojyo to Jyogo, a special class of jurei.
Jyogo, still unaware of Gojyo’s true strength, takes him for a human and treats him like a fool. While Gojyo was overwhelmed and thinking of his next plan, Itadori, who was supposed to be dead, was brought out to the battlefield to observe the battle with Gojyo.
Jyogo was surprised at the appearance of Itadori, the vessel of Sukuna, and scoffed at Gojyo’s action, saying that he had brought a slow-walker. So Gojo uttered these words in a manner that made fun of Jyogo. It is a memorable scene in which Jyogo, enraged by the agitation, causes his head to erupt.
Quote: 「大丈夫でしょ だって君弱いもん」(Daijyo-bu desyo datte kimi yowai mon )
Translation: “You’ll be fine. You’re weak.”
大丈夫 (Daijyo-bu): fine
君 (kimi): You
弱い (yowai): weak
The fourth prize was given to Fushiguro’s words to Itadori just before he was crushed to death by Sukuna. Itadori and Fushiguro were arguing over what to do with the bodies of the inmates on their mission to the reformatory. Fushiguro had no intention of helping the inmates, who were evil people to begin with. Itadori, hearing this, asks him why he helped the inmate who had incarnated the evil Sukuna.
This line, which was chosen as the 4th place, must have been the answer to Itadori’s question. It is a very important episode that shows Fushiguro’s way of thinking about sorcery and his own criteria in choosing people to help.
Quote: 「俺は正義の味方(ヒーロー)じゃない 呪術師なんだ」
(Ore ha seigi no mikata “HERO” jyanai jujyutsu-shi nannda)
Translation: “I’m not a hero. I’m a sorcerer.”
俺 (Ore): I
正義 (seigi): justice
呪術師 (jujyutsu-shi): sorcerer
In fifth place was the last words of Nanami Kento, a first-class jutsu master. During the Shibuya Incident, Nanami was severely damaged in the battle of Dagon and his upper body was burned by Jyogo, whom he happened to encounter.
At this point, he could have died, but despite his near-death experience, Nanami exorcised the curse spirits while worrying about the safety of his comrades. However, she eventually died as a result of an attack by Shinjin. Itadori happened to witness Nanami’s final moments and said these words to her.
Nanami’s death at this time was a very shocking development, and readers must have felt a great sense of loss.
Quote: 「後は頼みます」(Ato ha tanomi masu)
Translation: “I’ll leave the rest to you.”
後 (Ato): rest
頼み (tanomi): leave/favour
This line, uttered by Gojyo during training with Fushiguro, ranks 6th on the list. As the phrase suggests, “win by dying” means to defeat an opponent by dying, i.e., when the victory condition is one’s own death. On the other hand, “win even if you die” has the nuance of winning with the will to die, or challenging with the determination to die, and the two are completely different.
The reason why Fushiguro has the former option is because he has the most powerful shikigami, Makora, in his technique. If he could defeat his opponent by using Makora, Fushiguro himself would be killed by Makora if he could not subdue it.
Gojyo’s words were an exhortation to Fushiguro, who could not keep self-sacrificing victory as an option.
Quote: 「『死んで勝つ』と『死んでも勝つ』は 全然違うよ恵」
(“Shinde Katsu”to “Shinde mo katsu”ha Zen-zen chigau yo Megumi)
Translation: “Megumi, There is a difference between “winning in death” and “winning in death.”
死んで (Shinde): in death
This answer, a pet theory of Jumpei Yoshino, was selected in seventh place. When Yoshino was not particularly moved by seeing a human being that Masato had deformed, Masato asked Yoshino if he was used to dead bodies. In response, Yoshino begins to talk about the ugliness of human beings.
Having been bullied at school, Yoshino has experienced firsthand the ugliness of human beings. Therefore, he does not expect anything from people, nor does he grieve for the death of others. Yoshino’s affirmation of such indifference is a statement that can only be said because of his painful experience of bullying.
Quote: 「『無関心』こそ 人間の行き着くべき美徳です」(“Mu Kanshin”koso Ningen no yuki tsuku beki bitoku desu)
Translation: “Indifference is the virtue to which mankind must aspire.”
無関心 (Mu Kanshin):Indifference
Tied for seventh place was this line from Gojyo in “Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 0: Tokyo High School of Sorcery. A few days after the worst sorcery terror, “Hyakki Yagyo,” Gojyo hands Okkotsu his lost student ID card.
When Okkotsu asks if Teacher had found it, Gojyo replies with these words: “My best friend here is my best friend. My best friend here is Getou Suguru, the ringleader of the Hyakki Yagyo. Gojyo and Getou had been good friends and rivals since they were both students at a technical college.
Gojyo has never been able to be friends with his former best friend again, but the way Getou still calls him his best friend, including his outbursts, is a quote that shows how much Gojyo loves him.
Quote: 「僕の親友だよ たった一人のね」(Boku no Shin-yu dayo Tatta hitori no ne)
Translation: “He’s my best friend, my only friend.”
親友 (Shin-yu): best friend
たった一人(Tatta hitori): my only
The last words of Itadori’s grandfather, Wassuke, who was like a surrogate parent to Itadori, ranked ninth on the list. Although his back was turned to Itadori, Wassuke delivered these words in his usual manner, and then he passed away.
These words, which became Itadori’s last will and testament, became a curse for Itadori, but not in a bad way, and I feel that they also became a binding force for him to go straight ahead without blurring.
Quote: 「オマエは強いから 人を助けろ 手の届く範囲でいい 救える奴は救っとけ 迷っても感謝されなくても とにかく助けてやれ オマエは大勢に囲まれて死ね 俺みたいにはなるなよ」
(Omae ha tsuyoi kara hito wo tasukero teno todoku hani de ii Sukueru yatsu ha sukuttoke Mayottemo kansya sarenakutemo tonikaku tasukete yare omae ha oozei ni kakomare te shi ne Ore mitai ni ha naruna yo)
Translation: “You’re strong, so help people, as many as you can reach, save the ones you can, even if they’re lost or ungrateful, but help them anyway, and you’ll die surrounded by a lot of people, and don’t end up like me.”
強い (tsuyoi): strong
助けろ (tasukero): help
手の届く (teno todoku): you can reach
救える (Sukueru): save
迷っても (Mayottemo): lost
感謝 (kansya): grateful
Also ranked ninth was this line from Momo Nishimiya, a third-year student at the Kyoto School of Sorcery High School. After learning that Mekamaru was an inside man, the members of the Kyoto School take the Shinkansen to Tokyo. In the car, Miwa Kasumi has a final conversation with Mekamaru. Miwa, who has feelings closer to those of a normal person than anyone else, can’t help but burst into tears when the communication with Mekamaru is cut off, and her voice echoes through the doors. Hearing Miwa’s tears, Nishimiya, a junior member of the team, expresses his anger.
Quote: 「カワイイ後輩を泣かした奴は ブチ殺す」(Kawaii KO-HAI wo naka shita yatsu ha buchi korosu)
Translation: “I’ll kill anyone who makes a pretty KO-HAI cry.”
泣かした (naka shita): make cry
Coming in at No. 11 on the list are these words said by Tsumiki, Fushiguro Megumi’s sister-in-law, to Fushiguro. Tsumiki had been bedridden since the beginning of the story, having been cursed. Therefore, this line appears in the recollection.
Tsumiki is unquestionably a good person, as is clear from these words. Cursing others was not an option for Tsumiki. However, she, such a good person, is unreasonably cursed and does not wake up.
Quote: 「誰かを呪う暇があったら 大切な人のことを考えていたいの」
(Dare ka wo norou hima ga attara taisetsu na hito no koto wo kangae te itai no)
Translation: “If I had time to curse someone, I’d be thinking about the people I care about.”
誰か (Dare ka): someone
大切 (taisetsu): care about
Also ranked 11th is this line from Gojyo’s first meeting with Fushiguro. Fushiguro, an elementary school student at the time, is told by Gojyo, a mysterious man whom he has never met before, about the 禪院家 and his father, but he responds to him without any particular reaction. However, when Gojo assures him that Tsumiki will never be happy if she goes to the 禪院家, he gives her a stern look.
Gojyo sees everything in the expression on his face and decides to talk to him so that he can protect the two sisters’ lives and instead raise Fushikuro as a sorcery master himself. Gojyo’s words conveyed his hope for the future and his expectations for Fushiguro.
Quote: 「強くなってよ 僕に置いていかれないくらい」(Tsuyoku natte yo boku ni oite ikare nai kurai)
Translation: “Be strong, so I won’t be left behind.”
置いて (oite): left
These words of Yaga Masamichi, the principal of the sorcery school, were chosen in a tie for 11th place when confronted by Itadori, who has come for an interview to transfer to the Tokyo College of Sorcery.
When asked what he plans to do after becoming a sorcery master, Yaga, seeing that Itadori is not prepared for this, confronts him with the harshness and reality of the world of sorcery. Hearing Itadori’s true intentions, Yagasa agreed to allow him to join the school.
Quote: 「呪術師に悔いのない死などない」(Jyu-jyutu shi ni kui no nai shi nado nai)
Translation: “There is no such thing as an unrepentant death for a sorcerer.”
呪術師 (sorcerer): Jyu-jyutu shi
悔い (悔やまない): unrepentant
These words, which Tsumiki said to Fushiguro in the past, ranked 14th. Fushiguro had been distrustful of Tsumiki in junior high school, but when he became a sorcery master, he realized that he had been immature in his thinking in the past.
Tsumiki, who accepted even Fushiguro’s mentally young, twisted personality and clumsiness, is still a good person himself. This is one word that expresses the breadth and purity of her heart.
Quote: 「人を許せないのは悪いことじゃないよ それも恵の優しさでしょう?」
(Hito wo yuruse nai no ha warui koto jya nai yo sore mo megumi no yasashi sa de syou)
Translation: “There’s nothing wrong with not being able to forgive others. That’s grace, isn’t it?“
許す (yurusu): forgive
優しさ (yasashi sa): grace
Tied for 14th place is this line, which could be considered a greeting by Tohdo Aoi, a third-year student at the Kyoto College of Sorcery High School. Todo has the slightly unusual habit of asking people he meets for the first time what they like in a woman. Depending on the response, this can lead to unreasonable violence, as when Fushiguro was beaten to a pulp.
However, Itadori, like Todo, answered that his type is “girls with big butts and big heights,” which won him favor.
Quote: 「どんな女が 好み(タイプ)だ?」(Donna Onna ga konomi da)
Translation: “What kind of woman do you like?”
好み (konomi): like
Also ranked 14th was this line from Okkotsu, which was also used in the poster visual for “Jujutsu Kaisen 0 the Movie.
Okkotsu realizes that his battle with Getou Suguru requires more power than he is capable of possessing, so he asks Rika Prayer, a special class of supernatural spirits that possess him, to lend him her power in exchange for giving up everything he possesses. With this, the limiter of Okkotsu’s Cursed Energy is lifted, giving him the power to resist Getou’s Cursed Energy.
Getou, seeing Okkotsu’s awakening, accuses him of misogyny, but Okkotsu, without being provoked, retorts earnestly, “I am not a woman.
Quote: 「失礼だな 純愛だよ」(Shi tsu rei dana jyun ai dayo)
Translation: “HOW RUDE,THIS IS PURE LOVE“
失礼 (Shi tsu rei): RUDE
純愛 (jyun ai): PURE LOVE
This line spoken by Fushiguro in his mind when he was confronted with Sukuna during his mission at the juvenile reformatory, came in at the 14th place in the same ranking. Thinking that Tsumiki, a good person, was cursed while her evaporated father is still alive somewhere, Fusekuro felt that people’s destiny is not always cause and effect.
That is why Fushiguro believes that when it comes to helping others, he chooses to be a good person. In fact, Fusekuro originally had no intention to help those who were imprisoned in the juvenile reformatory, but he chose a strategy of abandonment in order to help Itadori who was taken over by Sukuna.
Later, when Itadori regained his self-will and drew his last breath in front of Fushiguro’s eyes, many readers may have been moved by the scene.
Quote: 「少しでも多くの善人が 平等を享受できる様に 俺は不平等に 人を助ける」
(Sukoshi demo ooku no zen-nin ga byoudou wo kyo-jyu dekiru you ni ore ha fubyou-dou ni hito wo tasukeru)
Translation: “I help people unequally so that as many good people as possible can enjoy equality.“
少し (Sukoshi): little
多く (ooku ): many
善人 (zen-nin): good people
平等 (byoudou): equality
This line from Fushiguro’s attempt at Domain Expansion when confronting a jurei at Yasobachi-bridge was selected at No. 18. Fushiguro, who was struggling against a superior spirit, recalled his conversation with Gojyo during training.
Fushiguro, who had been criticized for his abandonment strategy, tried again to use his innermost moves this time. However, Fusekuro managed to hold his ground, and he deployed an incomplete and unattractive Domain Expansion. His ability and potential had been recognized by Gojo, and his growth was instantaneous as long as he had a chance to do so. This was the moment when Fushiguro broke new ground.
Quote: 「やめだ やってやるよ!! 自由に!!」(yame da yatte yaru yo jiyuu ni)
Translation: “Enough! I’ll do it! Freely!“
やめだ (Yameda): Enough
自由に (jiyuu ni): Freely
Ranked 19th is this line uttered by Nohara Kugisaki during the battle between Eso and Kechizu, the recipient body of the special class spell “Jyutaikusou-zu.
Although he was in a state of being driven into a corner by Eso and his team’s technique, Kugisaki did not flinch and launched a counterattack. However, his counterattack consisted of driving a nail into his own body and tracing its blood to attack the two men. It is not an easy thing to do because it is very painful, but Kugisaki does not hesitate, and it is a very cool scene.
Quote: 「でも残念 私との相性 最悪だよ!! 我慢比べしよっか」
(Demo Zanen watashi tono aisyo saiaku dayo!! gaman kurabe shiyokka)
Translation: “But I’m sorry. You and I are the worst! Let’s see how patient you are.“
残念 (Zanen ): sorry
最悪 (saiaku): worst
我慢 (gaman): patient
Also ranked 19th was this line from Maki’s twin sister, Maori, who murmured her feelings for Maki. Maki and Maori were born as twins to the three members of the Zenin family.
Maki, who was given superhuman physical abilities instead of the power to cast spells, voluntarily left the Zenin family. Mai, who is left alone, outwardly dislikes Maki’s selfishness, but in her heart, she is sad that her beloved big sister has left her behind.
Quote: 「嘘つき…大っ嫌い」(Uso tsuki ,dai kkirai)
Translation: “Liar…hate you.”
嘘つき (Uso tsuki): Liar
Also ranked 19th was this line by Maki to Otokotsu, who has just transferred to the school, in “Jyujutsu Kaisen Vol. 0: Tokyo Metropolitan College of Jujutsu.
At the time, Otokotsu was a weak boy who did not understand the curse and was frightened by Satoko Prayer, who possessed him. He wanted to be able to relate to others and have confidence in life, but he was unable to take any action. Maki’s blackmail, as if she saw through his true feelings, touched Otokotsu’s heart.Exorcise, exorcise, exorcise the curse! Confidence and others will follow afterwards! That’s the kind of place this college of sorcery is!
Quote: 「呪いを祓って祓って祓いまくれ!! 自信も他人もその後からついてくんだよ!! 呪術高専(ここ)は そういう場所だ!!!」
(Noroi wo Haratte Haratte Haraimakure!! Jisin mo Tanin mo sono ato kara tsuite kun-dayo!! Koko ha souiu basyo da)
Translation: “Exorcise, exorcise, exorcise the curse! Confidence and others will follow afterwards!”
呪い (Noroi ): curse
祓って (Haratte): Exorcise
自信 (Jisin): Confidence
他人 (Tanin): others
Getou Suguru was defeated by Okkotsu at the Hyakki Yagyo and vowed to take revenge the next time, but he gave up his attempt to escape when he noticed Gojyo’s presence. He then told Gojo his true intentions. Getou also had some last words for Gojyo. Getou’s last words to Gojo, which he said with a slight hint of embarrassment, tied for 19th place in the ranking.
Gojyo’s last words are not revealed in the original story or in the movie version, but the author Akutomi has given us some hints, so we can narrow it down to a few candidates. If you are interested, please review the episode “Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 0”.
Incidentally, Yuichi Nakamura, who plays Gojyo, actually uttered this line during the recording of the movie version. Takahiro Sakurai, who plays Getou, professed that he was able to say this line with more emotion because of it.
Quote: 「最期くらい呪いの言葉を吐けよ」(Saigo kurai noroi no kotoba wo hakeyo)
Translation: “At least spit out a curse word at the end.”
最期 (Saigo): least
Itadori, whose body had been taken over by Sukuna during the Shibuya Incident, regained his self-discipline, but he was broken down after witnessing the massacre by Sukuna and the death of Nanami and Kugisaki. It was Todo who helped Itadori to get back on his feet.
Itadori, who recalled Shichimi’s words to him, “I’ll ask you to take care of the rest,” realized that he had been trying to escape and get comfortable by using the sins he was facing as an excuse. Itadori’s heart, which had undergone a severe ordeal and grown mentally, came in 23rd place.
Quote: 「俺ナナミンの分までちゃんと苦しむよ」(Ore nanamin no bun made kurushimu yo)
Translation: “I’ll suffer for Nanamin’s sake.”
苦しむ (kurushimu): suffer
Todo, who was watching the match between Itadori and Hanamio, who had interrupted the sister school exchange, suddenly slaps Itadori. Itadori quickly realized that his anger was interfering with the activation of Kuroshin, so Todo told Itadori off and slapped him again without a pause. Itadori, however, was able to perform the black flash successfully, having lost all his thoughts thanks to Tôdô. Torajo, however, was able to successfully perform four consecutive black flashes, a remarkable feat.
Itadori’s gratitude to Todo for helping him regain his composure was selected in a tie for 23rd place.
Quote: 「Thank you so much 東堂(ベストフレンド)!!」(Thank you so much BEST FRIEND! )
Translation: “Thank you so much, BEST FRIEND!!”
Also ranked at No. 23 was Kugisaki Nobara’s overly cool line at a sister school exchange meeting. Kugisaki grows frustrated with Momo Nishimiya of the Kyoto school, who expresses her own theory about how a female sorcery artist should be.
For Kugisaki, who has established her own path, Nishimiya’s argument is understandable but unconvincing. In the end, he affirms that men and women are irrelevant and that he loves himself for being honest about who he wants to be. It was a great scene that brought Kugisaki’s core strength to the forefront.
Quote: 「私は『釘崎野薔薇』なんだよ!!」(Watashi ha “Kugisaki Nobara” nann dayo)
Translation: “I am “Kugisaki Nobara”!”
私 (Watashi ): I am
Nanami, who is on her first joint mission with Itadori, argues that Itadori is still a child and is therefore a target of the escort. Itadori complains that he is treated like a child, but while it is true that he has become stronger after crossing the line of death, it does not mean that he has become an adult.
He called it a small despair. This all too realistic line from Nanami tied for 23rd place.
Quote: 「そういう小さな絶望の積み重ねが 人を大人にするのです」
(Sou iu chiisa na zetsubou no tsumi kasane ga hito wo otona ni suru no desu)
Translation: “These little moments of despair make us adults.”
小さな (chiisa ): little
絶望 (zetsubou): despair
大人 (otona ): adults
This powerful line, which Gojyo said to Jyogo confronting him in the Tokyo Metro Shibuya Station underground during the Shibuya Incident, tied for 23rd place. The Jurei side embarked on a strategy to involve a large number of civilians in order to prevent Gojyo from demonstrating his abilities.
Jyogo was confident in his strategy, but Gojo, oblivious to his plan, said with a devil-may-care expression on his face, “I’m not going to let you do this to me. Normally, it would not be surprising to see a bit of upset when a person is touched by that many civilians, but Gojyo, who did not waver at all, must have been a being of another dimension.

Itadori hears this and walks up to Yoshino, but is prevented from doing so by the true man, and we cannot take our eyes off of this development.

Fushiguro’s feelings toward Itadori, which he immediately admitted when asked if they were personal, ranked 29th in the same category.
Fushiguro is not an assertive person, but his willingness to clearly state his personal opinions to this extent was a scene that left a very strong impression.

Also ranked in 29th place is this quote that Kugisaki said to Nishimiya while snapping at her at a sister school exchange meeting. Needless to say, Nishimiya, who believes that a female sorcery must be a perfect combination of competence and cuteness, was the worst match for Kugizaki.
When told of the misfortunes of a woman born into the Satsuma family, Kugisaki responds with all her strength of character. Kugisaki, who never bows down to the environment or the world, was unapologetic in her rebuttal.

Sukuna’s words were tied for 34th place.
