See our ethics statement. Midway through season 1 of the currently unfolding anime series Jujutsu Kaisentwo high-school classmates, Nobara Kugisaki and Maki Zenin, walk together after Maki stops a fight between Nobara and a student from another school. The series follows the journey of the high-spirited student Yuji Itadori, who gains cursed powers after eating the finger of a powerful demon named Sukuna, while trying to save a classmate from a monster.
Enter Maki and Nobara. Jujustu Kaisen is revolutionizing the shonen genre by pushing ly standard formulas forward for modern audiences. Its treatment of Itadori is one notable example of how it develops and subverts the genre. So he submits to the power of the demon inside him and lets the demon take control of his body. Typically in shonen shows, powerful heroes grow stronger and overcome challenges when put to the test. But Jujutsu Kaisen flips that expectation on its head by making Itadori confront his powerlessness.
Sexist tropes and fan service plague the genre. At the same time, shonen does often depict women with strong powers and personalities, and with cool powers.
For the longest time, female fans of shonen have had to skate by on the love of a few particularly great characters, like Yoruichi Shihouin from Bleachor Maka Albarn from Soul Eater. But even those shows come with little caveats of discomfort. Yoruichi is poised, strong, and intelligent, but still grossly sexualized. One woman wields an all-powerful vacuum cleaner. Another has magic hands for massage. But the show recently shattered that expectation.
Nobara fights Momo Nishimiya, a girl with witchy powers, and Maki fights her own little sister, Mai Zenin. During this conversation, the two continue to spar. Nobara, whose power allows her to shoot floating nails imbued with her cursed energy, struggles to keep up with Momo, who flies around her on a broom. The scene has staying power, because Jujutsu Kaisen goes a step further than avoiding gender tropes by presenting a variety of female perspectives.
The story lets them disagree, and fight for their perspectives and their place. Momo gets to voice her anger over the unrealistic expectations society puts on women. As a woman who is constantly trying to juggle everything, she has the right to make that point.
Seeing Nobara claim her confidence is affirming and uplifting. And this is the trick of Jujutsu Kaisen. Onscreen, these women face seemingly insurmountable odds to make it as jujutsu sorcerers. Offscreen, they also face similar odds, as they take their places in the shonen canon.CABARETE Dominican Republic//Loney women seeking men here// #vacation #KINGLOCKETT #DominicanRep
