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.

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.
