Kugisaki Nobara’s Character in Jujutsu Kaisen

Kugisaki Nobara is one of the main characters in the Jujutsu Kaisen series. She is a first-year student and grade 3 jujutsu sorcerer at Tokyo Jujutsu High, training under Satoru Gojo alongside Yuji and Megumi. Jujutsu High has classified Nobara as a grade 3 jujutsu sorcerer. This is largely owing to her status as a first-year student and her lack of experience working as a sorcerer. She had the potential to be a good sorcerer.

Nobara possesses a large supply of cursed energy and is skilled at harnessing it. Nobara’s nails are always filled with her cursed energy, allowing her to elevate them for convenient pounding. She can even utilize cursed tactics to increase the amount of cursed energy around them.

Following her achievements in the Death Painting Arc, many fans expected Nobara to play an important role in the Shibuya Incident arc.

The anime adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen’s Shibuya Incident arc, on the other hand, has somewhat rehabilitated Nobara. In the most recent episode of the anime, Nobara went full throttle against Haruta Shigemo. In the manga, Nobara was unable to counter a hit to Shigemo. She was completely defeated before being rescued by Nanami.
