Kento Nanami Bids Farewell To Jujutsu Kaisen

Jujutsu Kaisen’s Nanami has long been a beloved character among the audience. When he last made an appearance in the series, half of his upper torso was burnt away following Jogo’s attack. Feeling the need to save Megumi from the resurrected Toji and find Maki and Naobito, Nanami decided to press on despite only having half of his torso and a tired body.

After being burned alive, he began to walk in Shibuya while picturing himself strolling along a sandy beach in Kuantan, Malaysia. While imagining himself on the beach, he came across innumerable transfigured humans and began destroying them.
