While only a few episodes in the arc, Jujutsu KaisenThe characters, and their fans, benefit from the series’ masterclass to create an excellent tournament story. Plus, since Itadori spent much of the show’s first deal away from friends, their reunion adds another exciting element.
Unlike many other tournament stories, Jujutsu KaisenThe Kyoto exchange event has started with a team battle. While it was designed to allow the sorcerers on each side to display their skills in a race to exorcise the greatest number of curses, news of Itadori’s resurrection prompted the director of Kyoto Jujutsu Tech, Gakuganji, to order his students to kill. Sukuna’s ship. Due to this threat, the team race turned into a total confrontation between both sides, with the wizards facing each other in one-on-one battles.
Fortunately, these battles have given Itadori and his friends a chance to shine. While Fushiguro and Nobara have already been seen in combat, these recent matches have made it easy to say that their training with their seniors has paid off. We’re also taking a look at the abilities of the other Jujutsu Tech students, although Toge Inumaki’s potential remains largely hidden.
These battles have also featured an essential element of the tournament arc by expanding the motivations and backstories of many characters. During Panda’s fight with Mechamaru, not only was Panda’s origin explored, but Mechamaru’s tragic life was also revealed in her battle with the Cursed Corpse. Simultaneously, the controversial relationship between the twins Maki and Mai Zenin aired, highlighting the struggle of each of the couples within their family. The exchange event builds on new relationships and strengthens existing ties, such as Nobara’s desire to protect Itadori.
Building on that idea, each character in the Tokyo branch of Jujutsu Tech has been motivated by the singular goal of protecting Itadori from the full power of his sister school. Even with Itadori spending most of the first half of the show away from the core supporting cast, his unifying return sows the seeds of powerful ties between these students.
While the arc has paid much-needed attention to other characters, Itadori has also played a lot with his ongoing fight with his new best friend, Aoi Todo. Rather than taking center stage, this battle has continued in the background, giving both characters time to develop within this fight. As Todo celebrates their new friendship, Itadori has been taking his opponent’s advice seriously, improving his Cursed Techniques and fighting style.
By last, Jujutsu KaisenThe Exchange Event, while still underway, has been successful because it hosted the best elements of any excellent tournament arc. By featuring impressive action sequences, each character has become more defined (without feeling forced), with their powers set easily, unlike some of the developments within. High school god. In the middle of the action, there have also been plenty of hilarious moments that speak to why tournament bows are so enjoyable.
With the Sisters School Exchange Event still ongoing, it is unclear how far the battle will continue, as the dark forces the Cursed Spirits plan to use the event to their advantage. However, the show has made substantial use of this arc, ensuring that Jujutsu Tech students are a group that viewers can support and look forward to to see in action together the many Curses that remain out there.
