Jujutsu Kaisen: Discover Maki’s new look

SPOILER ALERT! This item includes elements from the Drama of Shibuya and Death Hunt arcs!

The Shibuya drama had a great impact on the world of exorcists. In addition to being the cause of the death of several humans, he undermined the society of exorcists by sealing Gojo Satoru. Some exorcists including Maki got away with it but with both internal and external irreversible consequences. After this event, Maki will participate in the Murder Hunt, a bloody Battle Royale competition for exorcists. It was on this occasion that we were able to admire his new look. An artist paid tribute to him by making his cosplay.

Maki Zenin: the rejected stone that has become the main one

Maki was born into the Zenin Clan, a noble clan known for its powerful exorcists. She was never appreciated by her clan. Indeed, he considered her as a woman who had to stay in her place, especially since she couldn’t see the plagues without her glasses. She was for them a weak and inferior being. In her place, her twin sister Mai was privileged. Tired of bearing so much contempt, Maki will leave the clan, while swearing to come back to lead it. Since then, the young woman has joined the school of exorcism in Tokyo.

Maki is a leader who pushes others to excel. She is uncompromising with others, bitter and very serious. Being unable to use occult energy, she circumvents this difficulty by prioritizing occult objects and weapons. Her skills and strength allow her to teach her techniques to her peers and to be respected by them. At the start of the manga, the girl had bangs, hair in a ponytail, and a thin face. But following the events in Shibuya, she suffered severe burns on her body and face. Now she has short hair and a bandage covering the right side of her face. In memory of this radical transformation, the artist Geordie Holly will offer a cosplay. Find it on Instagram.
