Profile of Kasumi Miwa

Name: Kasumi Miwa (三輪 霞) Birthday: April 4 Age: 17 Height: 170 cm Affiliation: Second-year student at Kyoto Prefectural Jujutsu High School Rank: Grade 3 Sorcerer Domain Expansion Countermeasure: Simple Domain of the New Shadow Style Special Skill: Saving money Voice Actor: Chinatsu Akasaki

Kasumi Miwa in “Jujutsu Kaisen” is a student at Kyoto Prefectural Jujutsu High School. The blue-haired, 17-year-old second-year student, Kasumi Miwa, became a hot topic for possibly having fallen into darkness in the Sendai scene. Despite not being from a sorcerer family, she was scouted by the highest master of the New Shadow Style and enrolled in Kyoto Prefectural Jujutsu High School after being discovered in her first year of middle school. Her unique hair color and ability to see curses were the reasons behind her being scouted.

Miwa-chan, as she is affectionately known by fans, had been dying her hair black for a long time before enrolling in Kyoto Prefectural Jujutsu High School, a decision made not by her but by her mother. As a sorcerer, she holds the rank of Grade 3 and fights using a sword and the Simple Domain of the New Shadow Style.

Personality of Kasumi Miwa

Kasumi Miwa, also known as Miwa-chan in “Jujutsu Kaisen”, has a very fan-like personality. Compared to other characters, Miwa has a more ordinary personality and is aware of it. In the story, during the Kyoto Sister School Exchange Event, there is a scene where she asks Satoru Gojo for an autograph. Despite being aware of her fan-like nature, she couldn’t help but ask Gojo for his autograph.

During the Kyoto Sister School Exchange Event, Yoshinobu Gakuganji ordered the students to assassinate Yuji Itadori. Among the students responding to Gakuganji, Miwa internally disagreed with the order. Many scenes depict what she thinks inside her mind, often differing from what she says out loud. She has a very serious personality and even acted as Gakuganji’s attendant.

Satoru Gojo has praised her as a good kid with distinctive bangs. The creator revealed that he designed Miwa as a character with a normal girl’s personality. However, he commented that being a sorcerer with such a normal personality like Miwa is quite abnormal.

Is Kasumi Miwa Popular Among Fans and Does She Have Many Admirers?

Kasumi Miwa from “Jujutsu Kaisen”, who sparked discussions about possibly having fallen into darkness, is popular among fans and might have many admirers. In the official fanbook of “Jujutsu Kaisen”, when asked about characters who are popular, Gege Akutami, the author, mentioned Suguru Geto and Kasumi Miwa. The reasons for their popularity were not disclosed.

In the story, Kouki Mutou (Mechamaru) from the same year at Kyoto Prefectural Jujutsu High School showed affection towards her. There might also be other characters who like Miwa. Her popularity is believed to stem not only from her appearance but also from her personality. Given that many female sorcerer characters in the series have strong personalities, Miwa’s ordinary sensibility makes her attractive.

Miwa’s preferred type was revealed not in the official fanbook but in the anime’s segment “Jujutsu Sanpo”. When asked about her type, Miwa answered that she likes people who are good-looking, but finding someone she can have fun with and thinks “this is the one” is more important than appearance. Miwa’s answer is typically down-to-earth, reflecting her character.

Did Kasumi Miwa Fall into Darkness? Analyzing the Sendai Scene in “Jujutsu Kaisen”

Did Kasumi Miwa Fall into Darkness?

In “Jujutsu Kaisen”, the discussion surrounds whether Kasumi Miwa, known affectionately as Miwa-chan, has fallen into darkness. The reason behind such speculation is linked to her appearance in the Sendai Colony scene. During the Kyoto Sister School Exchange Event, not only was her sword taken by Maki Zenin, but she was also rendered immobile by Toge Inumaki.

Furthermore, in the Shibuya Incident arc, Miwa was removed from her duties by Mechamaru, aka Kokichi Muta. Given the Shibuya Incident arc saw even Grade 1 sorcerers losing their lives, and with curses far beyond the capabilities of a Grade 3 sorcerer like Miwa, it’s highly likely she stood no chance. However, there was a scene showing Miwa shocked by being removed from the mission. Additionally, during her confrontation with the fake Geto, her beloved sword was destroyed, not by cursed techniques but with bare hands.

Miwa has faced multiple setbacks since the Kyoto Sister School Exchange Event. Her emotional state during these times remains unclear, but there was speculation among fans that she might have died. Although Miwa did not die, she reappeared in the Culling Game, taking place in the Sendai Colony, after surviving the Shibuya Incident.

The scene of her appearance in the Sendai Colony during the Culling Game seemed to suggest she might have fallen into darkness. She was seen walking alone where Yuta Okkotsu and Ishigori Ryu fought. Her demeanor was dark and listless, and notably, she was not carrying her weapon.

Why Miwa Appeared in the Sendai Colony

  • Reason #1: Dying to Become Points for Okkotsu

One theory for Kasumi Miwa’s presence in the Sendai Colony is that she thought dying would contribute points to Yuta Okkotsu. The Culling Game, proposed by the fake Geto, is a game with specific rules and a point system.

Miwa, having her sword destroyed by the fake Geto, might have felt she no longer had the means to fight and considered dying in compliance with the Culling Game’s rules to transfer her points to Okkotsu. Participants of the Culling Game need to declare their intent to join after awakening their technique, leading to speculation that Miwa did not meet the conditions for joining the colony.

However, it was revealed that non-sorcerers also get one point added to their score. Participants can transfer their points to others, and after Miwa’s scene in the Sendai Colony, Okkotsu’s score increased by ten points, suggesting Miwa might have died and transferred her points to him.

Miwa and Okkotsu both participated in the Kyoto Sister School Exchange Event as first-year students, meaning Okkotsu knew both Mechamaru and Miwa. If Miwa disclosed Mechamaru’s identity and negotiated with Okkotsu, it’s possible she wished to contribute her points to him.

  • Reason #2: Acquired a Technique

Another reason for Miwa’s appearance in the Sendai Colony is that she might have acquired a technique. The identity of the fake Geto, who is actually Kenjaku, a curse user living for over a thousand years, was revealed before the Culling Game. Kenjaku had been granting techniques to non-sorcerers, allowing them to participate in the Culling Game. It’s speculated that Kenjaku might have also bestowed a technique upon Miwa.

When Miwa encountered Kenjaku, he destroyed her sword but did not kill her. The reason might have been to give her a technique. Alternatively, when Kenjaku used his technique “Idle Transfiguration”, Miwa, like other non-sorcerers, might have spontaneously awakened a technique. It’s also possible that after experiencing several defeats, Miwa awakened her technique on her own.

  • Reason #3: Incarnated by Kenjaku

The third reason for Miwa’s appearance in the Sendai Colony might be that she was incarnated by Kenjaku. In the Culling Game arc, various non-sorcerer characters were incarnated by past curse users. Tsumiki Fushiguro, Megumi’s sister, was also incarnated by a curse user from a thousand years ago named Yorozu. Humans incarnated by Sukuna were immobilized by cursed energy, but not all incarnated individuals exhibited this.

Miwa was scouted as a sorcerer by the highest master of the New Shadow Style during middle school. However, the true identity of the master has not been disclosed, leading to speculation that it might have been Kenjaku. Given Ken

jaku has shown a peculiarly favorable stance towards the New Shadow Style, it is speculated there might be some connection. Miwa revealed that her unique hair color was a reason she was scouted.

It is speculated that Miwa’s unique hair color might have made her a chosen vessel for incarnation by a past curse user. Even if Miwa was incarnated by Kenjaku, it’s possible that no scars would remain on her forehead, especially considering her hairstyle might hide any seams on her forehead. In the story of “Jujutsu Kaisen” Volume 21, scenes featuring Miwa do not show her forehead at all.

Furthermore, students from Kyoto Jujutsu High felt something was off about Miwa’s behavior. Despite being a Grade 3 sorcerer, Miwa understood the battle between Gojo and Sukuna very well, something the old Miwa might have found incomprehensible due to the vast difference in their dimensions. This raises the question of whether Miwa, after possibly being incarnated by Kenjaku or going through numerous defeats and awakening her own technique, has changed significantly.

The Reasons Behind Kasumi Miwa Becoming a Sorcerer and Death Theories

Why Kasumi Miwa Became a Sorcerer

This section introduces why Miwa-chan, from “Jujutsu Kaisen”, decided to become a sorcerer. As revealed in the scene where she appears in the Sendai Colony, the trigger for her becoming a sorcerer was being scouted by the highest master of the New Shadow Style. Miwa had a background of growing up in a poor family, with two younger brothers also being part of her family. To support her family, Miwa had been working part-time jobs since middle school.

Becoming a sorcerer and participating in missions could earn her a significant amount of money, which was not possible with ordinary part-time jobs. Despite being a Grade 3 sorcerer, where the job’s life-threatening nature means higher grades earn higher rewards, Miwa understood this. There are scenes where she hopes to increase her sorcerer grade to provide a more comfortable life for her family.

Reasons Behind Theories of Kasumi Miwa’s Death

This section discusses why theories about Miwa-chan, or Kasumi Miwa’s death, emerged in “Jujutsu Kaisen”. Among the members of Kyoto Jujutsu High School, Miwa did not possess strong abilities. During the Kyoto Sister School Exchange Event, she was incapacitated and had to withdraw from the fight. In the subsequent Shibuya Incident arc, Miwa, along with other members of Kyoto Jujutsu High School, confronted Kenjaku.

Despite facing Kenjaku with a resolution to fight to the death, Miwa’s sword was easily destroyed by him. A scene depicted her being saved by Atsuya Kusakabe, a teacher from Tokyo Jujutsu High School. However, since there was no follow-up on Miwa and others’ whereabouts after that scene, rumors speculated she might have died during the Shibuya Incident. The lack of a death scene led to speculation that Miwa might still be alive.

Indeed, Miwa reappeared in the story of the Culling Game arc, showing up in the Sendai Colony. This confirms that Miwa did not die, but speculations arose that she might have been incarnated by Kenjaku. If Miwa had been incarnated by Kenjaku, there was a possibility that she could end up being killed by Yuta Okkotsu and others as an enemy curse user. How she would act in the Sendai Colony raised the possibility of new theories about her death.

The Relationship Between Kasumi Miwa and Mechamaru in “Jujutsu Kaisen”

Were Mechamaru and Kasumi Miwa in Mutual Love?

This section explores whether Kasumi Miwa and Mechamaru from “Jujutsu Kaisen” were in mutual love. Mechamaru and Miwa-chan, as Kasumi Miwa is affectionately known, were comrades at Kyoto Jujutsu High School. Mechamaru had never met Miwa or any of the other comrades from Kyoto Jujutsu High School in person due to being completely immobile because of Heavenly Restriction. Although he gained physical freedom through a deal with Mahito, he ultimately died.

Mechamaru’s wish was to meet his comrades from Kyoto Jujutsu High School, especially longing to meet Kasumi Miwa. He clearly had affection for her. Conversely, Miwa once gave Mechamaru a Valentine’s Day gift. Known for being easily deceived, Miwa was tricked by Maki Zenin into believing that Mechamaru liked a particular brand of AA batteries. Hearing this, Miwa gave Mechamaru a single AA battery as a substitute for Valentine’s Day chocolate. It’s believed to have been given out of obligation, but Miwa had declared her intention to visit him in person someday.

Mechamaru’s Final Message to Kasumi Miwa

This section introduces the final message left by Mechamaru for Kasumi Miwa in “Jujutsu Kaisen”. Mechamaru died in the battle against Mahito, unable to defeat him. Anticipating his death, he left several mini Mechamarus behind. These mini Mechamarus reached Yuji Itadori and others during the Shibuya Incident, informing them of Gojo’s predicament. One of the mini Mechamarus was sent to his comrades at Kyoto Jujutsu High School.

Led astray by Mechamaru, the comrades from Kyoto Jujutsu High School were heading towards a location away from the Shibuya Incident. The mini Mechamaru left words intended for Miwa. Knowing he would die in the battle against Mahito, Mechamaru left his feelings and wishes for Miwa in his final words. He expressed that having someone important he wanted to protect by his side, wishing for Miwa’s happiness was his ultimate desire.

Before heading to the Sendai Colony, Miwa listened to Mechamaru’s message. Touched by the mini Mechamaru’s message, Miwa and others shed tears, while the rest of the members listened to the message from a distance, concerned for Miwa’s feelings. The comrades from Kyoto Jujutsu High School resolved not to forgive anyone who made Miwa cry.

The Abilities and Strength of Kasumi Miwa in Jujutsu Kaisen

Kasumi Miwa’s New Shadow Style “Simple Domain”

This section introduces Kasumi Miwa’s New Shadow Style “Simple Domain” from “Jujutsu Kaisen,” which garnered attention in her appearance in the Sendai Colony scene. It has been revealed in the official fanbook of “Jujutsu Kaisen” that Miwa does not possess her own technique. Despite not having her own technique, Miwa combats cursed spirits using the New Shadow Style Simple Domain. Several characters in “Jujutsu Kaisen” utilize the New Shadow Style Simple Domain.

The New Shadow Style Simple Domain was created by Sadatsuna Ashiya, a figure who thrived during the Heian period over 1000 years ago. During a time when cursed spirits and sorcerers wreaked havoc, Ashiya Sadatsuna taught his disciples how to fight without using techniques to protect people. The Simple Domain is primarily used to protect oneself from an opponent’s Domain Expansion, with characters like Mechamaru and Aoi Todo also employing it.

Miwa’s Simple Domain specializes in “Iaido,” an attack-focused Simple Domain that automatically targets anyone within a 2.21m radius. Specializing in frontal attacks, the domain deactivates if both feet move away from the starting point of the domain. Among the New Shadow Style Simple Domains, hers is the fastest draw, but it proved ineffective against Kenjaku, who could grab the sword with his bare hands.

Did Kasumi Miwa Fail to Show Her Strength at the Exchange Event?

This section discusses whether Kasumi Miwa from Kyoto Jujutsu High School failed to demonstrate her strength. Miwa had a battle scene against her classmate Maki Zenin during the Kyoto Sister School Exchange Event. She was misled by Maki into believing Maki could only attack with cursed tools as a Grade 4 sorcerer. However, when facing Maki, Miwa was shocked by her overwhelming strength and had her sword stolen.

After losing her sword to Maki, Miwa decided to hide. At that moment, she received a call on her cell phone from Mechamaru, or so she thought. Answering the phone without suspicion, she was actually speaking to Toge Inumaki, who managed to put her to sleep using his technique over the phone. As a result, Miwa ended up retiring from the Kyoto Sister School Exchange Event.

The Relationship Between Kasumi Miwa’s Hair Color and Sorcery

The section introduces the relationship between Kasumi Miwa’s hair color and sorcery, as she appeared in the Sendai Colony in the Culling Game arc of “Jujutsu Kaisen.” The story hints at significant foreshadowing hidden in hair color, as revealed in the official fanbook. The unusual blue hair was one reason Miwa was scouted as a sorcerer, despite being an ordinary girl. The relationship between hair color and sorcery has not been explicitly detailed in the story.

Most characters in “Jujutsu Kaisen” have natural hair, with dyed hair being an exception, as stated in the fanbook. Unlike other manga, where various hair colors are common, “Jujutsu Kaisen” bases its world on naturally black hair, making characters like Miwa and Gojo Satoru stand out.

Though not from a sorcerer family, Miwa’s mother dyed her hair black, potentially hiding something significant. It’s speculated that her hair color might be linked to a major storyline development, possibly revealing a powerful technique akin to Gojo Satoru or Toge Inumaki.

Was Kasumi Miwa Useless?

This section questions if Kasumi Miwa from “Jujutsu Kaisen” was useless. Miwa’s main battle scenes were limited to the Kyoto Sister School Exchange Event and the Shibuya Incident arc. In the Exchange Event, she was disarmed by Maki Zenin, and in the Shibuya Incident, her sword was destroyed by Kenjaku. Without any combat scenes in the Sendai Colony, it’s unclear if she contributed effectively.

Feeling inadequate in every fight, Miwa considered herself useless. Kenjaku was far beyond a Grade 3 sorcerer like Miwa, but being easily disarmed by a non-sorcerer like Maki during the Exchange Event could have been a reason for her to “fall into darkness.” If her hair color is indeed related to her sorcery abilities, Miwa overcoming her failures and gaining a strong technique could be a potential storyline.
