Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2’s most recent episode, which features Mei Mei and her brother Ui Ui, bravely adapts one of the manga’s most contentious episodes, sparking a lot of discussion. The manga scene that went viral, in which Mei Mei is seen in a hotel bed with her younger brother, was adapted for the anime.
Furthermore, we learn that she inquires with her blushing brother, Ui Ui, about whether or not she finds her sister unattractive in her entirety. Fans first disagreed over whether Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 should have included this scene or not, and when MAPPA ultimately chose to include it, there were a lot of debates about it online.
Among those debates, a particularly absurd one was when fans compared Mei Mei with Himeno from Chainsaw Man to find out who was a better “groomer” between the two. This tweet got a lot of attention as both Chainsaw Man and Jujutsu Kaisen fans gave their opinion about who is the better groomer, and how this debate is disgusting in the first place.
Mei Mei’s Controversial Episode in Jujutsu Kaisen
The incestuous themes between adult Mei Mei and her younger brother Ui Ui in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2, Episode 22, “Metamorphosis, Part 2,” have caused a great deal of controversy. As the Shibuya Incident arc came to an end, Mei Mei and her younger brother Ui Ui left Japan.
They chose to stay in a hotel in Malaysia, which was an obvious reference to the place Nanami Kento had intended to retire. Mei Mei is seen in the scene embracing Ui Ui while they are both lying in bed, asking him to stay the night. He blushes in response, saying how inappropriate that would be.
Then she asks, “Do you hate me when I do something wrong?” as he blushes and says that such an act is inappropriate. When Ui Ui notices that Mei Mei is unhappy and gets out of bed to answer a phone call, the confusing situation takes a turn. This scene has sparked a huge debate online and one even involves the Chainsaw Man character Himeno in a comparison between who is the better groomer among the two.

However, the recent episode of Jujutsu Kaisen has brought the Chainsaw Man fans out to compare who is the better groomer between Himeno and Mei Mei as both characters have a little bit similar personalities.
While some fans found the debate inappropriate, most of them shared their opinion about the comparison and some even brought out another character who triumphs both of them.

The episode really sparked a huge controversy for the series as, while some fans are intrigued about the debate, some are really disgusted by the scene and the topic of debate. Both anime series have been a topic of some controversies since their releases with some case or another. However, fans still love both Jujutsu Kaisen and Chainsaw Man and can’t wait for the next episode and next chapter to release.
