Jujutsu Kaisen Shows Off Maki’s New Power Level
Jujutsu Kaisen has been testing Maki Zenin with her first genuine fight in the Culling Game, and the newest section of the series is showing off the kind of new power that will presently be at her disposal moving forward! It’s been a seriously unpleasant period for Maki emotionally, spiritually, and physically since the finish of the Shibuya Incident, however as a result she has arrived at a level of power that can now contend with the new threats she’s all’s facing in the Culling Game. In any case, it turned out to be clear very right off the bat that she’s still not totally used to handling her new body and abilities.
The previous chapters of the series have pit Maki and Noritoshi Kamo with their first genuine test of the Culling Game in the Sakurajima Colony, and one of the greater surprises turned out to be that Naoya Zenin resurrected as a new Cursed Spirit that had the entirety of the power and intelligence that he had before. However, as he was magnified much further, Maki was struggling to find a method for keeping up until the newest section of the series as she reaches a new understanding of what she can truly do with her body.
Section 197 of Jujutsu Kaisen picks up after Maki gets some assistance from Miyo’s sumo inspired Domain Expansion, and it was uncovered that she indeed arrived at a new understanding of her body. It’s explained that in the time it took Maki and Kiyo to finish the 1,000 sumo matches necessary to end the Domain, only less than a minute had passed in the outside world. It’s uncovered that with this new understanding of her new body granted by Mai, Maki is currently much faster and moving more elegantly than the beefed up Naoya.
Through this new understanding of herself, she understands the kinds of moves that Toji Fushiguro would have made. She could actually see the ripples in the air pressure around her, and using that is ready to counter Naoya’s speedy attacks. It’s something that Maki will currently use to get to her next significant boost in strength as obviously she has a more higher ceiling of power than any time in recent memory.
