[Jujutsu Kaisen] Description of Momo Nishimiya’s ‘Tool manipulation’!
Next, I will explain the characteristics of Momo Nishimiya’s technique, “Tool Manipulation”, and Momo’s own combat ability and strength as a shaman.
Momo’s technique was revealed at the exchange meeting between the Tokyo and Kyoto colleges, but since then it has not been shown very often.
Maybe there are other spells that can’t be used against students other than the ones shown in the exchange meeting.
Momo Nishimiya’s technique is “Tool manipulation”.
Momo Nishimiya’s technique is called “Tool Manipulation“, which allows her to fly and create powerful gusts of wind by controlling a broom.
Her main role in group battles is to search for enemies and keep track of the situation, while she flies around freely in a costume reminiscent of the Witch like.
Considering the name of “Tool Manipulation”, and the fact that Kugisaki uses the “Resonance” to cripple Momo Nishimiya’s broom in chapter 41 of volume 5 of the manga, suggests that Momo Nishimiya’s Manipulation Technique is not about “manipulating the wind” but about “manipulating the broom“.
There is no particular explanation as to whether the broom itself is a cursed tool or an ordinary broom, but if flying is the effect of the spell tool, then it is not the technique of Momo Nishimiya.
So it is likely that the spell power was passed through the ordinary broom using the “Tool Manipulation”.
Creating a powerful gust of wind with a broom
This is one of the applications of Momo Nishimiya’s technique “Tool Manipulation”, which allows her to use a broom to create a powerful localized gust of wind.
In the 40th chapter of the 5th volume of the manga, she hit Kugisaki with a gust of wind from above, damaging her with gravel and twigs, and using it as a distraction.
Incidentally, at this time, Momo Nishimiya was fighting with her ears and brain protected by a spell power to protect them from Toge Inumaki’s cursed words, so the gust was not at full power.
When Momo Nishimiya was hitting Kugisaki with a gust of wind, she was thinking something scary: “If I increase the power any more, I might kill her”.
So if she uses her full power of technique, she can attack her by much stronger wind.
The broom can be controlled remotely
The application of Momo Nishimiya’s “Tool Manipulation” not only allows her to fly on a broomstick, but also to control it remotely.
In the manga’s 5th volume, chapter 40, she showed a tricky technique in which she blinded Kugisaki with a gust of wind, then moved her broom behind her and attacked her from a blind spot by remote control.
This is a scene that shows not only her mastery of Tool Manipulation technique, but also the wealth of combat experience that is typical of Momo Nishimiya, a third-year student at the college.
“Wind scythe” is a spell that she unleashed on Uraume in chapter 135. Incidentally, it is revealed for the first time in this scene that Momo Nishimiya’s technique is called “Tool Manipulation”.
Momo Nishimiya swoops down from the sky and flies through the ground, kicking and swinging her broom to send a huge aerial slash flying.
At this point, Uraume is so strong that he is flung away with his bare hands, but it is a ranged attack that could wipe out multiple opponents of the same grade or lower at the same time.
[Jujutsu Kaisen] Momo Nishimiya’s domain Expansion
Momo Nishimiya’s domain expansion has not yet been introduced in the story.
Momo is more of a search and rescue or battle support type, but it will be interesting to see if she will be able to deploy her domain expansion in the future.

[Jujutsu Kaisen] Momo Nishimiya’s view of the shaman
So far, we have explained the characteristics and strength of Momo Nishimiya’s technique, “Tool Manipulation”.
In this section, I will explain the view that Momo Nishimiya has of shamans.
In the 40th chapter of the 5th volume of the manga, she explains her theory about the meaning of a woman’s life as a shamans.
- Even if a girl has the skill, she’s looked down upon if she’s not cute.
- Even if They’re cute, they’re looked down upon if they’re not skilled.
- What’s required for a female shaman isn’t skill. It’s “perfection”.
This is probably a theory based on Momo Nishimiya’s past experience.
In addition, since the Zen’in family is one of the three elite clans in the society of shaman, spellcasters born into the Zen’in family are fighting against the “unreasonableness” that perfection is the norm.
It is said that a shaman must be perfect, and that anyone who is not is not a person.
In addition to such a troublesome family background, neither Maki nor Mai is blessed with any talent as a sorceress, so they have spent their lives not even being treated as people.
Because Momo Nishimiya knows the situation of Maki and Mari, she can’t forgive Kugisaki.
Momo Nishimiya is a good friend of Mai Zen’in
As mentioned above, Momo Nishimiya is aware of Mai’s situation and has feelings for her that can be described as respectful.
The series of fierce battles with Kugisaki are considering about the situation of Mai, and there’s a scene during the battle where Mari and Momo are talking
Mai: “Don’t worry, Momo. I know.”
It’s clear that they understand each other even without talking about it in depth.
By the way, in the reminiscing scene of Mecha-maru, Miwa gives him Valentine batteries instead of Valentine chocolates.
In this scene, Mai and Momo Nishimiya are setting Miwa up, and they are laughing in the background.
The members of the Kyoto school have a bad atmosphere, but at least the female members seem to get along well.
Momo Nishimiya, who loves her junior students, also likes Kasumi Miwa.
In chapter 128, there is a scene where Kasumi Miwa talks with “Mini-Mechamaru”, left by Mechamaru who has already passed away, in the bullet train.
Here we also get a glimpse of the friendship between Momo Nishimiya and Miwa.
Because the war situation in Shibuya was too dangerous, Mechamaru had arranged for Miwa, Momo, Kamo, Mai and Utahime to be left in Kyoto, and only Todo and Nitta to be sent there.
However, the trick is exposed and Miwa questions Mini-Mekamaru.
He tells Miwa why he did it.
I wanted Miwa to be happy.
Then my wish will have come true.
With that, Mini-Mekamaru’s communication is cut off.
Momo Nishimiya sees Miwa crying and says,
It is clear that she cares about Miwa, her junior.
[Jujutsu Kaisen] The voice actor (CV) of Momo Nishimiya is Rie Kugimiya.
This is the example movie the battle of Momo Nishimiya vs Nobara Kugisaki of the anime of Jujutsu Kaisen.
The voice actress for Momo Nishimiya is Rie Kugimiya, and you can tell from the character movie that she fits the image perfectly.
By the way, when it was decided that the role of Momo Nishimiya would be played by Rie Kugimiya, fans said “the image is perfect”, “it’s perfect” and so on.
After all, it’s amazing that a voice actress can play so many different roles.
Conclusion of “[Jujutsu Kaisen] Momo Nishimiya’s tecnnique “Tool manipulation”! How strong she is?”
In this article, we will introduce you to Nishimiya Momo’s technique “Tool Manipulation”, her domain expansion, her strength, and voice actor.
Although Momo Nishimiya hasn’t had that many appearances yet, her appearance and the special nature of her “Tool Manipulation” make her a memorable character.
Aoi Todo’s character is so unique that the other members of the Kyoto college tend to be overshadowed by him, but we can look forward to more from her in the future.
