This is a short comment about the heroine created by Akutami Gege-sensei.
Akutami-sensei is tough on his heroines.
Jujutsu Kaisen is a work in which the female characters do not moe or flirt. I think about this work when I watch it. The original author, Mr. Akutami, is very hard on her heroines.
In Jujutsu Kaisen, the heroine is always hurt.
Nobara are injured.
Maki are injured.
Rika goes crazy.
And Riko Amanouchi…
Often, the heroine dies or is injured.
Direct and cruel depictions are rare. However, it is harsh.
Then, I am curious about the male characters.
Major male characters whose appearance is not too compromised
It is understandable that Okkotsu and Gojo, who acquired reversal magic, are not injured. Fushiguro is almost unharmed, and Itadori is only slightly damaged.
Mob characters can lose their arms. However, there is a difference in the appearance of injuries between female and male characters.
I wonder why that is?
I’m curious about the author’s sense of gender.
The work Jujutsu Kaisen is very flat in its treatment of gender. Women are portrayed as equals to the regular male members.
This is an influence of the times. In other comic works, however, women are portrayed as a bit more, well, feminine.
On the other hand, the women in the jutsu kaisen are badass and their bodies are constantly injured. Iori Utahime also has a scar on her face.
Fushiguro and Itadori are treated with more importance.
What kind of gender sense is this due to?
I have one thought.
Perhaps the author likes to see women suffer?
That’s not to say that it’s good or bad.
Jujutsu Kaisen is an interesting piece of work.
That’s why I’m concerned about the difference in treatment.
