[Jujutsu Kaisen] The cool charm of Nobara Kugizaki!

First of all, let’s talk about the charm of Nobara Kugisaki, who is known for her coolness.

Nobara is supposed to be the heroine of the series, in the sense that she is the female character closest to the main character, Yuji Itadori, but she is so cool and manly that you don’t feel it.

In this section, we’ll talk about three of her charms.

Nobara’s cool charm 1: Brave language!

One of the main characteristics of Nobara Kugisaki is her cool language.

When she’s talking in a normal tone of voice, it’s still normal, but when she’s in the middle of a battle or when her emotions are running high, she’s basically rough to the extreme.

Basically, it doesn’t matter if the person she’s talking to is older than her or not, she’ll always talk to them on a rough style, with the exception of Maki and Nanamin.

This brave use of language is one of the reasons why Nobara is said to be so cool.

Nobara Kugisaki’s fighting style is mainly based on using a hammer, a five-inch nail and a straw doll.

In a way, it can be said that it is the most sorcerer-like style, and when she first showed the straw doll in the 5th episode of the 1st volume of the manga, Yuji said “Creepy!”.

However, Nobara’s own character is very unassuming, so this scary fighting style of using straw dolls is a good spice, and it doesn’t make her seem insidious or grim, it even makes her look cool.

Nobara’s cool charm 3: The mental strength which is not afraid of death!

In the story, Nobara Kugisaki battles with various cursed spirits, curse users, and incarnated humans, and there are times when she is faced with the near-death.

Even in such a cornered situation, Nobara is neither in a hurry nor lamenting, but rather shows an uncanny mental strength, even willing to blow herself up.


In the 4th chapter of the 1st volume of the manga, Satoru Gojo says that “If sorcerers cannot get over their fear or disgust of curses, they can fall by the wayside.“.

But Nobara has a cool side that shows its true value in a desperate situation, rather than fear.

[Jujutsu Kaisen] List of Nobara Kugisaki’s coolest scenes and quotes!

Next, we’ll talk about the scenes and quotes that make Nobara Kugisaki so cool in Jujutsu Kaisen, along with the volume and number of chapters.

Basically, the scenes in which Nobara appears are all very manly.

Let’s take a look at some of the coolest and most famous scenes in the story in chronological order.

The reason why she came to the college (vol. 1, chapter 5)

The reason why she came to the college (vol. 1, chapter 5)(C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

This is the scene in the 5th chapter of the first volume of the manga, when Nobara Kugizaki has completed her first mission.

When Yuji asks Nobara, “Why do you come to Jujutsu high?” Without a single frame of hesitation, she replies, “I didn’t like living in the middle of nowhere, so I came to the ciry!

It’s an effect that looks like a cursed words in the speech balloon when she says it.


Compared to Yuji, who was asked the same question by Masamichi Yaga, and spent several pages struggling with the wreckage of the corpse while answering, her answer was so free of hesitation that it was refreshing.

“I’ll remember your face!” , “I swear, I’ll curse you!” (vol. 1, chapter 7)

Nobara (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

This is the scene in the 7th chapter of the 1st volume of the manga, in the reformatory where the special grade cursed spirit appeared.

Nobara Kugisaki got separated from Yuji and Fushiguro, and came across a large number of cursed spirits in the basement of the reformatory.

She exorcises a considerable number of curses, but in the end she is overwhelmed by the volume of curses, her hammer is broken and her five-inch nail is out of ammunition, and she is caught by the curses.


In the face of this desperate situation, and the fact that she would be eaten in the next moment, Nobara was not in a hurry and did not cry.

I’ll remember  your face!
I swear I’ll curse you!

As I said at the beginning, the cool Nobara, whose emotions never waver even when death is imminent, is mental hero.

“I can see your the pores on your face.” (vol. 3, chapter 17)

Nobara (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

This is the scene in chapter 17 of volume 3 of the manga, when Aoi Todo and Mai Zen’in from the Kyoto school come to greet (=harass) each other.

When Mai hugs Nobara from behind (i.e. takes her back), Nobara says

You gettin’ enough sleep?
I can see the pores on your face

It’s the kind of thing you’d expect to find on a list of words that girls of her age don’t want to be told.

It was the coolest agitator that even the “natural born agitator”, Nobara was not a step behind.

Like a young gang. (vol. 3, chapter 18)

Nobara is like a young gang. (vol. 3, chapter 18)(C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

The cool (and funny) Nobara Kugisaki is on the door picture of chapter 18 of volume 3 of the manga.

She’s squatting on the ground with her arms on her knees, staring at her opponent in a pose reminiscent of a local gang.

Before and after this young gang pose, there is a scene where she and Mayori get into a fight, which makes this pose stand out even more.

Nobara’s chokesleeper on Mai (vol. 3, chapter 18)

Nobara's chokesleeper on Mai (vol. 3, chapter 18)(C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

Once she was knocked unconscious by Mai’s bullet, but in the 18th chapter of the 3rd volume of the manga, she performed a choke sleeper from behind while Mai was distracted.

It’s both cool and scary that her counterattack was a chokesleeper!

Not only does she lock Mai’s body with both legs, but she also holds down his left arm, which is holding the gun, together, which shows how much experience she has in physical combat.


By the way, in chapter 125, the childhood of Nobara is described, and it seems that she was so naughty that she beat up several boys even in primary schools.

Nobara’s agitation Momo Nishimiya (vol. 5, chapter 37)

Nobara's agitation Momo Nishimiya (vol. 5, chapter 37)(C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

This is the scene where she incites Momo Nishimiya in the goodwill event in chapter 37 of volume 5 of the manga.

Until this scene, Momo was a “frightened little beautiful girl” kind of character, but then Nobara said,

  • Even Pepper-kun could come up with a better responce.
  • Guess I’ll scrap him and turn him into him in to recycled pottery.

By the way, Panda who was standing next to me when he saw Nobara’s stunt felt “Scary…” without interrupting at all.

“Is your life just a job?” (vol. 5, chapter 40)

Nobara (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

This scene is from the 41th chapter of the 5th volume of the manga, after Momo Nishimiya talks about the family background and past of Mai Zen’in.

Maki and Mai were born into the “Zen’in family”, one of the three families in the world of shaman, but because they did not inherit the Zen’in family’s traditional techniques, they were treated with disdain even though they were born into the family.

Momo talked about how the environment that most people take for granted has been difficult for Mai, but Nobara says “Shut up”.

Why do I have to answer to “perfection” or “unfairness”?
Is your life just a job?!


Nobara had a past of running away from the closed and damp village in her hometown, and she sympathize with Maki, who also ran away from the Zen’in family.

This is one of the reasons why she said “Your life is your own business.“, which is a very cool quote.

“I’m Nobara Kugizaki!” (vol. 5, chapter 41)

(C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

This is the scene where she put the “Resonance” into Momo’s broom in chapter 41 of volume 5 of the manga.

She activates the “Hairpin” to knock down the nails that he has stuck into the surrounding trees, and manages to snatch one of the branches of the broom by forcing Peach to lower her altitude.

As she strikes the branch with her “Resonance“, she says the following words to the previous one, “Is your life just a job?

Boys vesus girls?!
Give me a break!
Keep your mouth shut!I love the me that dresses up and looks beautiful!
I love the me that’s strong!I’m Nobara Kugisaki!

No matter how desperate she is, she is never in a hurry, and the values that form the basis of her strong mental attitude are expressed in this cool quote.

A brawl in the baseball game (vol. 7, chapter 54)

A brawl in the baseball game (vol. 7, chapter 54)(C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

This is a scene from the 54th chapter of the 7th volume of the manga, at a baseball game following the goodwill event.

The top batter of the Tokyo school was Nobara Kugisaki, and the pitcher of the Kyoto school was “Mechamaru”.

However, because Mechamaru was a pure pitching machine and not a cursed corpse which is manipulated by “puppet manipulation”, Nobara got angry.

A brawl broke out, but Mai explained the situation, and the game was continued for the time being.

“I’m a bad match for you!” (vol. 7, chapter 60)

(C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

This is a scene from chapter 60 of volume 7 of the manga, during the battle between Eso and Kechizu.

Nobara has been hit by Eso’s “Supreme rot technique“, and Eso activates “Decay“, which causes the wound to develop an eerie flower-like pattern.

However, Nobara instantly understood the characteristics of his opponent’s technique and came up with a countermeasure, “to put “Resonance” into her own body“.


In the 7th chapter of the 1st volume of the manga, there was a scene in which Nobara did not waver at all in the face of death, and this time she even smiled in a cool scene.

Also, the fact that she is able to think clearly during the battle shows how good she is as a sorceress.

Nobara has a strong mentality like a steel. (vol. 7, chapter 61)

Nobara has a strong mentality like a steel. (vol. 7, chapter 61)(C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

This is the scene in the 61st chapter of the 7th volume of the manga, when “Resonance” returns the intense pain to Eso and Kechizu.

If Eso didn’t release the technique, the pain would continue, and it became a contest of endurance, and in this state, Nobara thought

If I go down, I’m using “Resonance” to take you down with me!

and she makes a cool resolution.


In this scene, she says “If I’m go down”, and in a sense, we can see that she is taking even her own death objectively.

In the 4th chapter of the 1st volume of the manga, Satoru Gojo gave Nobara a mission to test her “craziness”, and in a way, Nobara might be the craziest sorceress in a good way.

“Black flash” (vol. 7, chapter 61)

(C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

In the 61st chapter of the 7th volume of the manga, during the battle between Eso and Kechizu, she performed “Black flash“.

At that time, when Eso saw Kechizu’s dying form, he unconsciously canceled his technique, and the intense pain on Nobara’s body subsided.

In the end, the only thing that mattered was that they were able to focus on the moment of attack, and both Yuji and Nobara unleashed their “Black flash” at the same time.

Both flashes are very cool.


Even though there was no pain from the “Decay”, she still had several nails in her arm from her own “Resonance”, but it seemed to be a minor problem for Nobara.

By the way, it is said that those who have reached the state of “Black flash” approach the core of the cursed energy, and it is thought that Nobara also became a trigger to power up as a sorcerer.

“Don’t worry, I’ll be sending big brother your way.” (vol. 7, chapter 61)

(C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

In the 61st chapter of the 7th volume of the manga, this is the scene when Nobara stabs Kechizu with the “Hairpin“.

Kechizu was fatally wounded by Nobara’s “Black flash”, but at the last moment he opened his big mouth and tried to bite Nobara from behind.

However, Nobara didn’t even look back, and used the “Hairpin” on the nail that was stuck in Kechizu. This killed him, and Nobara said,

Don’t worry.
I’ll be sending big brother your way soon.

That’s a cool quote like the villain.

It’s a cool scene with Nobara’s dreadful lines and expression.

“On it!” (vol. 8, chapter 62)

Nobara (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

In the 62nd chapter of volume 8 of the manga, this is the scene where Eso is chased by a truck as he tries to escape.

It just so happened that Nobara and Yuji were fighting when a light truck came along, and Eso jumped on the truck and took the driver hostage.

Yuji chased after him with his super speed and signals “Kugizaki!”, Nobara was swinging a hammer and puts a straw doll on her right arm and says,

On it!

and then she hit it with the “Resonance“.

When she was swinging the hammer and when she hit him with the Resonance, she was smiling, so maybe she’s the type of person who gets adrenaline rushes and smiles during battle.

“That makes us accomplices.” (vol. 7, chapter 63)

Nobara (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

This is the scene in the 63rd chapter of volume 7 of the manga, where Yuji and Nobara were talking.

Eso and Kechizu were not cursed spirits, but former humans who had incarnated a special grade of cursed charm, the “Kusozu cursed womb“.

Yuji cared for Nobara because she has not “exorcised” them but “killed” them, but on the contrary, Nobara encouraged Yuji.


Yuji was shocked that Eso was crying for Kechizu, but he was still trying to make sense of it as a sorcerer.

Nobara said to him, “That makes us accomplices.“, showing that she is willing to bear Yuji’s burden with him.

This is also a very manly and cool thing to do.

“I’m a lady after all.” (vol. 7, chapter 63)

Nobara (C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

It’s a scene from manga volume 7, chapter 63, where Megumi Fushiguro and Nobara are talking.

Ever since Sukuna incarnated Yuji’s body, Megumi has noticed that various cursed spirits have been waking up, as if in resonance with it.

Megumi calls this phenomenon ‘Resonating‘, and tells Nobara, “Don’t talk to Yuji about Resonating.”.

And Kugisaki said to Megumi

I won’t.
I’m a lady after all.

And that’s a cool, manly thing to say.

In the case of Nobara, she never says anything unnecessary in the first place, so she is a lady (Bro) who can care as she says.

“Resonance” to Mahito (vol. 14, chapter 123)

(C)Gege Akutami/Shueisha

In the 123rd chapter of the 14th volume of the manga, Nobara hit Mahito’s body with “Resonance“.

Before hitting him with the “Resonance”, Mahito said to Nobara, “That won’t work on me. Or did you forget already?”.

Then Nobara replied, “I know that, but sometimes you just gotta try!

In fact, this was a bluff to make Mahito let his guard down by feigning inaction, and Nobara was convinced that “Resonance” would be effective against Mahito.

And “Resonance” inflicted a great deal of damage to both Mahito himself and his alter ego.


No matter how many times a normal sorcerer attacks Mahito, no damage is done, but here it is clear that Nobara is a natural enemy of Mahito.

It’s cool to see Nobara bluffing her way through a much higher-ranked special grade cursed spirit.
