The character Megumi Fushiguro in Jujutsu Kaisen is very popular.
And I think people often say that Fushiguro is a heroine.
In this article, I’ll be discussing the Fushiguro heroine theory.
Is Megumi Fushiguro a heroine?
First, let’s talk about why Megumi Fushikuro is considered a heroine.
This theory came to be said because the strongest character in the Jujutsu Kaisen, Ryoumen-Sukuna, is obsessed with Fushikuroe.
In the incident in the play, Fushikuro looks like a heroine, because the supposed enemy, Ryoumen-Sukuna, came to help her.In other scenes, Ryoumen-Sukuna often has words for Fushiguro. Their relationship is similar to that of a hero and heroine.
Now, let’s take a look at what a heroine means in a story.
In many cases, the heroine in a story is a woman.
In the old stories, women were to be protected. And they were often the prize of the story.
On the other hand, in common settings, the heroine is often the greatest “good to be protected” in the play.
In a story, the heroine is the one who symbolizes the “right thing to do”.
And a story is a mission to protect, help, or acquire goodness and heroine.
So, what kind of position does Megumi Fushikuro actually fit into in Jujutsu Kaisen?
Megumi Fushiguro fits into the heroine position that Ryoumen-Sukuna hopes to acquire. This is just something that Shugugina is obsessed with, but her relationship with Itadori is equal.
The interesting part is when we talk about the other heroine condition.
When you think about what “rightness” or “justice” means in a play, the character of Megumi Fushiguro actually fits into a position that symbolizes it. In older stories, this is the role of the female heroine, but in Jujutsu Kaisen, it is often done by Megumi Fushiguro.
In the story, Megumi Fushiguro said.
“I will help people unequally so that as many good people as possible can enjoy equality.”
This is the code of conduct for Fushikuro. It also symbolizes goodness and justice in Jujutsu Kaisen, and is the goal of many sorcerers. It is also the same as the main character’s goal.
Megumi Fushiguro’s sense of goodness and justice comes from her sister. Therefore, her sister is the origin of the heroine. However, since Fushiguro always appears in the play and speaks out as her own will, it seems that Fushiguro is the one who symbolizes justice.
Megumi Fushiguro often explains what justice is with her own body. The structure of the story is to use him as the standard for judging righteousness in the work. Also, the character of Megumi Fushiguro has never lost sight of justice. This is also a characteristic point.
Incidentally, Itadori’s justice is influenced by his grandfather. However, he has contradictions and is sometimes lost. So the heroine, Fushiguro, becomes his partner and teaches him “justice”. By doing so, Itadori loses his hesitation, and the story moves forward.In other words, as a coupling, Itadori and Fushikuro also have a cooperative relationship, like a kind of hero and heroine. In addition, there is a love triangle with Sukuna.
When analyzed this way, Kugizaki Nobara really doesn’t have much character as a heroine.
I’ll follow up, but Kugizaki Nobara also has justice as a heroine.
She says in the play that she “fights to be herself,” which is also justice in the story.
Fushiguro’s justice is the standard for his position in the play. Megumi Fushiguro fights for what she believes in and often finds herself in danger.
He is a thrilling heroine. Often he is saved by Sukuna and Itadori.
In other words, Megumi Fushiguro is a heroine in the sense that she has justice and can help.
This character is a bit unusual, isn’t it? It is a character with a mysterious position.
As I mentioned above, Megumi Fushiguro is a “heroine”.
I think that is very interesting.
