Kenjiro Tsuda Hints At Nanami Kento’s Death in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2

Nanami Kento has been the highlight of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 during Satoru Gojo’s absence. The praise is directed to Kenjiro Tsuda, who has recreated Kento’s stoic and reserved personality from the manga, and has delivered some iconic scenes in the second season.

Episode 12 was a show-stealer due to Kento’s interrogation scene with Haruta Shigemo. Towering over the villain each time, he showed the difference in both their powers when a punch sent Haruta crashing into a nearby window. Overwhelmed, Kento broke Haruta’s spirit and his face at the end of the nearly two-minute fight sequence.

Fans absolutely adored the authoritative voice work of Kenjiro Tsuda in Episode 12. That being said, he welcomed them with a post captioned “Thank you for supporting #nanamikento.” Jujutsu Kaisen manga readers caught the subtle teaser about the character’s death.


Here is how some JJK fans reacted to the post:






Kenjiro Tsuda previously voiced Seto Kaiba in Yu-Gi-Oh! and Kai Chisaki in My Hero Academia. Speaking of Nanami Kento, here is how the fan-favorite character will die in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2.

When does Nanami Kento die in Jujutsu Kaisen?

Nanami Kento

A favorite of mangaka Gege Akutami, Nanami Kento is a former student of Jujutsu High. He mentored Yuji Itadori and Takuma Ino following Satoru Gojo’s insistence. In the ensuing Shibuya Incident Arc, he assists Yuji and Megumi in finding Gojo and freeing him from captivity in the Prison Realm.

Unfortunately, the mentor falls midway during his journey to Gojo. Nanami Kento dies in Chapter 120 of Jujutsu Kaisen at the hands of Mahito after he is grievously injured by a swarm of transfigured humans. In his final moments, Kento sees the apparition of Haibara before giving his goodbyes to Yuji Itadori.

Season 2 Episode 12 covered the manga chapters 98-101. Thus, Nanami Kento’s death will be around the 20th episode or later. It will be quite a shock for anime fans as the season comes to a close but currently, the hype is around Episode 13 which is scheduled to be released on October 19.
