In this article, we will explain Hanami‘s techniques, domain expansion, domain amplification, strength and abilities, and reasons for death.
Hanami is one of the highest grade cursed spirits in Jujutsu Kaisen.
Her strength is at a level where an ordinary sorcerer would be killed instantly, and even in the story, it took a bunch of technical college students, including Yuji and others, to finally beat her.
First of all, I will explain about the technique of Hanami and domain expansion.

[Jujutsu Kaisen] Hanami’s techniques and domain expansion!
First of all, we will explain the characteristics and strength of Hanami’s techniques, spells, domain expansion and domain amplification.
Hanami is one of the cursed spirits who are working with Geto(Kenjaku), and has many battle scenes because she appears in front of Yuji and Gojo many times.
Although she is no match for Gojo, she is strong enough to be a major threat to most sorcerers.
Hanami is a user of plant-based techniques!
Hanami uses plant-based technique. The name of the technique is not clear, but it can be used to create a flower garden or a large tree.
This technique is of course also used for offensive purposes, but also for auxiliary spells, such as taking away the opponent’s will to fight, or for special spells, such as sending seeds that absorb the opponent’s cursed energy.
Hanami’s technique “Flower Garden”
In the 16th chapter of the second volume of the manga, when Hanami intervenes in the battle between Gojo and Jogo, Hanami uses the technique.
A giant sapling-like tree is thrust into the ground, and a field of flowers appears all around it.
It doesn’t have any offensive capabilities, but even Gojo was dusty and momentarily lost his will to fight.
Hanami’s technique “Cursed Seed”
In chapters 47 and 51 of volume 6 of the manga, there is a scene where Hanami uses a technique on Megumi Fushiguro, and that is the “Cursed seed“.
It plants a seed that grows as a parasite on the opponent’s body, sucking in the cursed energy, and the more the opponent uses the cursed energy, the deeper the root will penetrate into the body.
It is a technique that is a complete first-time killer for the sorcerer, and if he tries to guard the seed with his cursed energy, the parasite will grow stronger.
When Megumi Fushiguro was attacked by it in chapter 47, the cursed seed grew just by trying to move the shikigami “Divine dog“, and its roots grew deep inside his body.
In the 51st chapter, when Aoi Todo was hit, he saw the parasite on Megumi Fushiguro beforehand, and was able to avoid any damage by guarding against it in his raw state with zero cursed energy.
Hanami’s technique “Tree Root”
This spell is the quintessential example of Hanami’s technique, which involves the creation and manipulation of giant tree roots.
It is a highly versatile spell that can crush or block an opponent’s escape route with its huge mass, restrain an opponent by extending like a vine, or pierce an opponent with its sharp roots.
Incidentally, these tree roots are embodied from scratch by Hanami, and disappear when the technique is released.
Because she was manipulating tree roots on such a large scale, even Aoi Todo misunderstood that she was manipulating existing plants with her cursed energy.
Hanami’s technique “Tree ball”
This is the technique shown by Hanami in chapter 46 and 49 of volume 6 of the manga, in which she made a ball appear that looks like a rounded tree root.
This is one of the most common techniques of Hanami and is very versatile.
The ball flies freely in the air, and a sharp tree extends from the ball and can pierce the opponent, so it is possible to attack like a “funnel” in Gundam.
In the story, she was standing around while stopping the movement of the ball with the “Cursed words” by Inumaki, but if this ball is sent out in large numbers, it can be a difficult attack to avoid without “Cursed words”.
In addition, in the 49th chapter, Hanami herself floats in the air on the ball.
Hanami’s technique “Kuge”
In the 51st chapter of the 6th volume of the manga, Hanami tried to unleash “Kuge“, which can be called the special move of her technique.
Hanami’s left arm is capable of sucking the life out of plants, storing that life force in the “kuge” on her left shoulder, and unleashing an enormous bombardment of cursed energy.
At that time, Gojo appeared at the right moment and interrupted the “Kuge”, but Hanami was about to release the “Kuge” as soon as the area was developed, and if Gojo had been late, Todo and Yuji would have been hit by the inevitable and deadly bombardment.
Hanami’s domain expansion: “Daikoukai”.
In the 51st chapter of the 6th volume of the manga, Hanami was preparing to activate “Kuge“, and at the same time, she tried to use domain expansion.
However, as mentioned earlier, Gojo appeared at this timing, so both the ‘Kuge’ and the domain expansion were interrupted.
Probably, since Hanami’s innate domain, which uses plant-based techniques, is thought to be a magnificent forest, if she had deployed her domain, the scene would have been like the inside of a huge forest.
By the way, it is revealed in the official fan book that the name of Hanami’s domain expansion is “Daikoukai“.
Hanami’s domain amplification
In the 84th chapter of the 10th volume of the manga, Jogo and Hanami used “domain amplification“, an applied technique of domain expansion, against Satoru Gojo.
While the whole area is covered with the innate domain, the domain amplification covers only his own body with the domain like a liquid.
This can neutralize the opponent’s technique, like New Shadow Style’s “simple domain“, so that the attack can reach even Gojo, who boasts of his absolute defense with “Limitless cursed technique”.
In addition, since his own body is covered by the domain, his defensive power is also increased.
On the downside, since he can’t use any of his techniques while he’s in the midst of his domain amplification, he has to stick to simple physical attacks.
[Jujutsu Kaisen] Hanami’s strength, combat prowess, toughness and weaknesses!
So far, we have explained about Hanami’s techniques, domain expansion and domain amplification, but how strong is she in actual combat?
In this section, we will explain the strength of Hanami’s techniques, her fighting ability, her toughness, and her weaknesses based on the descriptions in the story.
Hanami is a special grade cursed spirit.
According to the standards set by the Jujutsu world, Hanami is a special grade cursed spirit.
However, Hanami, Jogo and Dagon are exceptionally strong, so they cannot be measured by the standard of special grade cursed spirits of the jujutsu world.
By the way, the one who appeared in the reformatory in the 6th chapter of the 1st volume of the manga is said to be also a special grade cursed spirit equivalent to one of Sukuna’s fingers, while Jogo is said to be as strong as ‘eight or nine of Sukuna’s fingers‘.)
And Hanami is different from the ordinary spirits, and Gojo says that it is ‘as close to a spirit as possible’.
Hanami is strong in close combat as well as in physical combat.
Hanami, who appeared during the goodwill event, uses a lot of techniques, but also shows a lot of fighting.
In the beginning, it is a special grade cursed spirit, so its attack power is also strong, and Noritoshi Kamo retires with one punch, and even if he is weakened by five consecutive “Black flash“, she is strong enough to fight with Yuji.
She is also very strong in close combat because of the way she plays with tree roots and cursed seeds.
Hanami is the toughest of the cursed spirits.
Hanami was hit by five consecutive “Black flash” by Yuji, and also by Todo’s attack on her weak point with a special grade cursed tool, “Playful Cloud“, which he put all his cursed energy into, and she still didn’t die.
In the free space of the 51st chapter of the 6th volume of the manga, the author, Gege Akutami, says that “Hanami is super tough”, so she is one of the best cursed spirits in the world with extraordinary toughness.
It is also said that “If the same attack hit Jogo, he would die.“, which shows how tough Hanami is.
Hanami’s weakness is the tree on her face.
As mentioned above, Hanami is super tough, but dhe has a weakness, “the tree on her face is much more fragile“.
Hanami’s body is not only tough but also sturdy, even Noritoshi Kamo’s “Blood manipulation technique” of “Piercing blood” only scratched a little, and even when Maki cuts him with a sword, she is guarded by her upper arm and the sword was broken in one shot.
However, when Megumi Fushiguro slashed at the Tree of Eyes in the 46th chapter of the 6th volume of the manga, it was easily cut, and Megumi passed this information on to Aoi Todo.
After that, Hanami’s weakness is shared among the technical colleges, and Gojo also exploits this weakness in the Shibuya Incident.
[Jujutsu Kaisen] Hanami’s strength based on her battle record!
So far, we have introduced about Hanami’s techniques, her domain expansion, her combat abilities and her weaknesses.
Now, we would like to talk about Hanami’s battle scenes and achievements in the story.
Hanami is one of the most frequent cursed spirits in the series, along with Jogo, so she has many opportunities to engage in battle with the members of college.
Let’s take a closer look at each of these battles.
Hanami and Jogo vs Satoru Gojo (vol.2, chapter 16)
Hanami first appeared on the battlefield in chapter 16 of volume 2 of the manga.
At that time, when Gojo was fighting (almost bullying) with Jogo, he invoked a technique to rescue Jogo and intervened, and left the battle immediately without participating in it at all.
The aforementioned “Flower Garden” technique of Hanami was used at this time, and succeeded in escaping while Gojo’s will to fight was momentarily reduced.
Hanami vs Toge Inumaki (vol. 5, chapter 43 -)
In the 43rd chapter of volume 5, during the goodwill event, Toge Inumaki ran into Hanami.
Naturally, Hanami was not an opponent that Inumaki could chase alone, and when he encountered her here, he did not engage her, but rather left her behind.
He used “Cursed Words” to escape to where everyone is, meeting up with Megumi Fushiguro and Noritoshi Kamo on the way.
Hanami vs Toge Inumaki, Noritoshi Kamo and Megumi Fushiguro (vol. 6, chapter 45)
After Toge Inumaki joined up with Megumi Fushiguro and Noritoshi Kamo, the three of them went to work on Hanami.
However, his strength was too overwhelming for the three of them to handle, so they retreated to meet up with Gojo while stopping his movements with the Inumaki’s technique.
But Hanami’s strength was so strong that Inumaki reached his limit too soon, and Kamo retired with a blow from Hanami, and Inumki also retired after the cursed words of “Blast away“.
Hanamikoto vs Maki Zen’in and Megumi Fushiguro (vol.6, ep.46-)
After Kamo and Inumki retired, Maki Zen’in joined them.
Maki slashed with the sword she got from Miwa, but it was broken in one shot.
After that, she used the special cursed tool “Playful Cloud” to blow Hanami tens of meters and damaged her right arm.
Then Fushikuro Megumi used shikigami “Divine Dog” to cause further damage to her left arm, which was the first time she did any real damage in this battle.
However, afterwards, Megumi’s body was implanted with a tricky technique called “Cursed Seed“, and Maki, who was momentarily distracted by Megumi’s condition, was also stabbed in the left shoulder.
Maki and Megumi, both with wounds, are forced to retire, while Yuji and Aoi Todo rushed to the scene.
Hanami vs Aoi Todo and Yuji Itadori (vol.6, ep.47-)
After Maki and Megumi fell down, Yuji and Todo engaged Hanami.
Yuji and Todo dodged Hanami’s tricky and powerful techniques and landed one good blow after another.
In particular, Yuji had been on the verge of something during his fight with Todo, and during his battle with Hanami, he reached the point where he was able to perform the “Black Flash“.
After that, he unleashed a series of four Black Flashes, for a total of five Black Flashes.
In addition, Todo hit Hanami’s vital point with “Playful Cloud”, which carried Todo’s cursed energy, and although they couldn’t exorcise her, they caused her a lot of damage.
Hanami vs Satoru Gojo (vol. 6, chapter 52)
Satoru Gojo arrived on the scene after lifting the curtain that has been lowered on the technical college.
Hanami was considerably worn out by the battle with Yuji and Todo, and tried to retreat when Gojo, who is absolutely no match for her even at her best, rushed to the scene.
Because there was a distance to the position of Hanami, Gojo pursued with the Hollow “Purple“, and with too much destructive power, a valley like the Grand Canyon was formed all over the area.
Although Hanami escaped Gojo’s attack just in time and retreated, she suffered a near-fatal injury when the left half of her body was wiped out.
From the looks of it, Hanami was wise to decide to retreat the moment Gojo appeared.
Hanami, Jogol and Choso VS Satoru Gojo (vol.10, chapter 83-)
After the goodwill event, Hanami appeared again in Shibuya Incident. This time, Jogo and Choso are with her, and the three of them challenged Gojo.
The battle began on the platform of the Fukutoshin Line on the B5F of Shibuya station, where many humans are trapped, and Jogo, Hanami, and Choso attack Gojo while involving the humans.
Gojo, on the other hand, couldn’t unleash his “Blue” or “Red” in a space full of people, so he basically fought with a physical battle.
Even with all these conditions, Hanami was no match for Gojo, and as we will see in the next chapter, Hanami was exorcised by Gojo.
[Jujutsu Kaisen] What is the reason for Hanami’s death?
Hanami met Gojo for the third time in the Shibuya Incident.
The first time was when she rescued Jogol, the second time was when she was hit by Hollow “Purple” at the technical college, and the third time was the decisive battle at Shibuya Station B5F in the Shibuya Incident.
Since the Shibuya Incident was prepared with a clear objective, Hanami and the others challenged Gojo in a backwater formation without thinking of retreat.
Hanami’s attempt to use the technique by undoing the domain amplification momentarily backfires!
In the 84th chapter of the 10th volume of the manga, Jogo and Hanami were able to hit Gojo by “domain amplification”, but even if Jogo and Hanami were to join forces, they would be no match for Gojo, who boasts a different level of strength in close combat.
And when Gojo broke “Limitless cursed technique” and turned to simple spell manipulation, Hanami decided that she didn’t need to use the domain amplification and tries to use the technique.
However, as explained earlier as a disadvantage of domain amplification, it is not possible to use both the technique and domain amplification at the same time.
So Hanami’s defense was lowered when she released the domain amplification.
Satoru Gojo pulls out her weak point.
Gojo, aiming for the moment when Hanami released her domain amplification, grabbed Hanami’s weak point, the tree of the eye, and pulls it out.
Although this attack did not kill Hanami, it did cause her fatal damage in her fight against Gojo.
After that, Hanami and Jogo attacked Gojyo once again by domain amplification, but Hanami’s HP is already low due to the previous weak point attack.
She is crushed to death by the aftermath of Gojo’s “Limitless cursed technique”.
The more Hanami and Jogo tried to neutralize Gojo’s technique with the domain amplification, the more Gojo tries to keep “Limitless cursed technique” stronger.
The aftermath of the cursed energy alone is no longer enough for Hanami to withstand, and Gojo uses his technique to push her against the wall and crush her.
This is another example of Gojo’s unorthodox nature, as he uses the aftermath of the cursed technique to crush the special grade cursed spirits.
Conclusion of “[Jujutsu Kaisen] Hanami’s death scene! What her techniques and domain expansion are about?”
In this article, we have explained Hanami’s techniques, domain expansion, domain amplification, strength and abilities, battle results, and reasons for death.
Exorcising cursed spirits is one of the most important tasks for sorcerers, and when it comes to special grade cursed spirits, the battle inevitably intensifies.
Although Hanami is not as good as Jogo, she shows an overwhelming strength that no ordinary sorcerer can match, especially in the goodwill event.
