When it comes to the modern generation, there aren’t many anime better than Chainsaw Man or Jujutsu Kaisen. Similar to every great anime, there are a few characters who have insane popularity among fans.
Usually, this type of popularity is reserved for the main characters of anime. But the likes of Kishibe and Nanami have also managed to attain immense popularity among fans. Speaking of the characters, Mads Mikkelsen recently sparked a debate on Twitter.
Is Mads Mikkelsen Perfect to Play Nanami in a Potential Jujutsu Kaisen Live-Action Movie?
Following the success of One Piece live-action, anime fans are patiently waiting for a movie or TV show adaptation of their favorite series. Jujutsu Kaisen is undoubtedly among the top candidates to have a live-action adaptation.
Considering there are many iconic characters in the series, it will take immense effort to find the right actors for the show to become a success. But if such a project is ever green-lit, fans believe Mads Mikkelsen would be perfect to play the character of Nanami.

The original tweet was posted by @JJKContents on Twitter. However, after a critical response from what appears to be a Nanami fan account (the username is hourly_nanami), it led to a debate among fans about whether Mads Mikkelsen would be perfect to play Nanami or Kishibe.

While a few fans agreed that Mads Mikkelsen would be perfect to play Nanami in a live-action adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen, most fans didn’t agree with the comparison.
A fan believes Mikkelsen is perfect to play Kishibe from Chainsaw Man. On the other hand, some fans had issues with Nanami potentially being depicted by a man in his late 50s. After all, Nanami may look old, but he is 28 years old in the anime.
Jujutsu Kaisen’s New Episode Is Now Released
Jujutsu Kaisen season two has remained one of the top anime in the world over the last few months. Each episode of the anime has been better than the previous in one aspect or the other.
The first few episodes of the season featured Gojo’s backstory. Following the start of the Shibuya arc, the anime has yet to slow down. Most recently, the appearance of Sukuna took the fans by storm as the main antagonist of the series toyed with Jugo.
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 episode 17 is titled Thunderclap, Part 2. Keeping that in mind, the episode will most likely focus on Sukuna’s yet another fight with the sorcerers. Moreover, there’s a chance that Nanami gets some spotlight as well.
