Also, while the series is fast approaching, we have a very special attention on the news around its author, Tatsuki Fujimoto. And it seems that the mangaka is a particular fan of a character from Jujutsu Kaisenwritten by Gege Akutami (and whose anime is produced by MAPPA): Nobara Kugisaki. Student of Satoru Gojo, Nobara Kugisaki is one of the classmates and friends of the main character, Yuki Itadori. Fighting with nails and a hammer, she has great physical strength.

Tatsuki Fujimoto also drew her, and shared her version of Nobara Kugisaki on Twitter. And the least we can say is that she is badass!
