[Jujutsu Kaisen] Profile of Mei Mei! Technique, age, height, weight, voice actor!
We’ve compiled a list of Mei Mei’s profiles as follows.
When she first appeared, there was a difference of opinion as to whether she was a man or a woman, but in the 64th chapter of the 8th volume of the manga, Aoi Todo called her “Ms. Mei Mei” and her body shape when playing table tennis confirmed that she is a woman.
Also she is freelance, which is rare for a sorceress, and is a rationalistic character who doesn’t belong to any organization and for whom money is the most important thing.
She also has a special technique called “Bird Strike“, although she is basically good at spying and monitoring.

[Jujutsu Kaisen] Mei Mei’s strength of techniques and spells!
Mei Mei is a first grade spellcaster using her own technique to defeat even special grade curses.
Here you can learn more about her techniques, spells and domain expansion.
Mei Mei’s technique is “Black Bird Manipulation”.
The technique used by Mei Mei is “Black Bird Manipulation“.
As the name suggests, it is a technique to control the black bird (= crow), this alone does not have the strength to be used in battle, so it seems to be a very weak technique.
In fact, Mei Mei herself has said that her own technique is “weak”, and that is why she concentrated on training her physical abilities when she was younger.
However, as explained in the following spells, the “Black Bird Manipulation” is extremely useful for scouting, searching for enemies, understanding the situation of the battle, and even has the “Bird Strike“, which is a one-hit kill.
Mei Mei’s spells
The Black Bird Manipulation technique is to manipulate crows, but not only to manipulate them, but also to share their vision and to output their images.
There are several Mei Mei’s spells in the story, so let’s look at them one by one in detail.
Mei Mei can share the crow’s vision
By sharing the vision of the crow, which is controlled by the technique “Black Bird Manipulation”, Mei Mei is able to obtain visual information from the crow.
At the goodwill event, Mei Mei was monitoring the battle between the Tokyo and Kyoto schools, which were fighting in different parts of the forest, through the crows.
She is able to control a large number of crows at the same time, so she can keep track of all the battles in the area.
Mei Mei can project the image from the crow’s point of view on the monitor.
The visual information obtained through the crow is not only understood by Mei Mei, but can also be displayed on a monitor.
This allows the whole teaching staff to monitor the battle situation of the students at once during the goodwill event in the 40th chapter of volume 5 of the manga.
However, on this occasion, Mei Mei, who had been paid by Yoshinobu Gakuganji, deliberately made the images around Yuji Itadori cut off.
Mei Mei’s special technique “Bird Strike”
“Bird Strike” is a spell that Meimei used on the special grade curse “Smallpox deity” in chapter 102 of volume 12 of the manga.
The effect of the spell is increased by setting restrictions on actions and promises. In this case, the crow’s spell limit is removed by forcing the crow to commit suicide.
In this way, the crow, which is normally only capable of casting a very small amount of spell power, is given a powerful spell power output, so strong that it can bury even a special grade curse with a single blow.
The fact that Gojo is the only person who has been able to guard “Bird Strike” shows its destructive power.
Mei Mei’s domain expansion
Mei Mei’s domain expansion has not appeared in the work.
Mei Mei is a first grade spellcaster, but the same first grade spellcaster, Kento Nanami, cannot use domain expansion.
So Mei Mei may not be able to use it either.
If she could use it, she would be terrifyingly strong, as she could hit a storm of “Bird Strikes” at will.

[Jujutsu Kaisen] Mei Mei’s techniques and strength as a sorcerer!
So far we saw the techniques of Mei Mei.
Mei Mei does not sweat when she defeats a very strong curse user or a special grade curse spirit, which shows her considerable strength and vast experience.
We will explain how strong Mei Mei actually is as a shaman, based on her grade, her battle scenes in the story, her techniques and fighting style.
Mei Mei is a first grade sorcerer
Mei Mei is a first grade spellcaster and is also a very elite one, having already been promoted to 1st grade when she was a student at a technical college.
As for the grade of the spellcaster, the highest is the special grade, but the special grade spellcaster is out of the standard for better or worse, so it is said that the 1st grade spellcaster who supports the shaman society.
This is why the bar is so high when it comes to becoming a 1st grade, and most spellcaster’s reach the quasi-1st grade or 2nd grade.
In this context, Mei Mei is not a particularly powerful technique of “manipulating crows”, but she became a 1st-grade spellcaster while she was still a student, so she must have put in a lot of effort and actual combat behind the scenes.
The fact that she also exorcised a special grade spell in the Shibuya incident shows that she is definitely a very strong shaman.
Mei Mei’s basic tactic is close combat with the great axe
Her height is about the same as that of Yuji Itadori, so she is about 170cm tall, and she is a beautiful woman with an outstanding style.
However, contrary to her appearance, her basic fighting style is to wield a large axe in a physical battle.
She wielded a huge axe with one hand that obviously weighed several tens of kilograms, and in the Shibuya incident, she completely overwhelmed a curse-user who was considered to be of 1st-grade quality.
Her basic combat power without any techniques alone is strong enough, and she seems to have the ability of a 1st-class shaman just by her physical ability.
The strength of Mei Mei’s “Bird Strike”.
The basic tactic is to crush the opponent with the big axe, but in addition to that, as mentioned above, the strength of the “Bird Strike” is overwhelmig, and it is versatile enough to handle both close and long range combat.
Another advantage of the Bird Strike is that it can fire as many shots as there are crows in the air, making it practically impossible for Mei Mei to run out of ammunition when he has a large number of crows.
It’s a great way to make sure you don’t get caught in the middle of the action.
Ui ui’s New Shadow style “simple domain” is a countermeasure to domain expansion
Mei Mei’s younger brother, Ui Ui, accompanies her on the Shibuya incident.
Ui Ui worships Mei, and will not tolerate anyone who interrupts her or is rude to her.
Whenever she speaks, he stands upright and applauds, forcing everyone around him to applaud too (even his enemies).
In fact, Mei Mei is never taken for the sake of the extra, but for the purpose of countermeasures against domain expansion.
In the 102nd chapter of the 12th volume of the manga, when she fought against the special class spell spirit “Smallpox deity“, the opponent used domain expansion, so Ui Ui’s New Shadow style “simple domain” became the key to attack.
