Jujutsu Kaisen is in the middle of the Culling Game, and the tournament has led to a brutal arc. Megumi and Yuji had their work cut out for them as Japan was inundated with the best wizards in the world. Of course, that means a ton of new characters have appeared on the show lately, and a recent intro just dropped the best possible Demon Slayer nod.
the whole played around the beginning of chapter 195 this week. Gege Akutami followed a new swordsman in this update as they desperately tried to find a sword. Searching for a katana, they found a blade hidden among a pile of toys, and well – the sword was a replica from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
So yes, Gojo might be a fan of the anime. Hopefully the wizard was able to binge on anime while locked up in the prison realm, right?

The whole reference became crystal clear when the katana made noise from the Demon Slayer anime. A voice shouted from the replica, saying, “First Form!! Water Surface Slash!!” So if that doesn’t make things obvious enough for you, nothing will.
Of course, our mysterious swordsman ends up finding a blade before long, and he gets it back thanks to Maki. The old man runs headlong into his fight with Naoya’s curse, after all. Now the question remains how this geezer will handle the fray, and it looks like their power could give Maki some serious sense of deja vu.
