In the intricate world of Jujutsu Kaisen, the concept of cursed spirits adds a layer of terror, as these entities manifest from the malevolent energy that permeates the environment. The adaptation of the Shibuya Incident arc, considered one of the most detailed and intense in anime, marked a turning point. The narrative bid farewell to the ominous disaster curses, embodiments of humanity’s deepest fears. Four formidable cursed spirits, each born from a distinct fear, emerged with a singular objective: the total annihilation of humanity. While some fans lamented the seemingly premature conclusion of the Shibuya Incident arc, it left the door ajar for more riveting confrontations in the anticipated third season of Jujutsu Kaisen.

Hanami, the Nature Curse: Hanami, a special-grade disaster curse, epitomizes humanity’s fear of forest-related calamities. Operating as a major antagonist in the first half of the Jujutsu Kaisen narrative, Hanami wields plant-based techniques with formidable power. Joining forces with Pseudo-Geto, Hanami played a pivotal role in discussions about sealing Satoru Gojo and releasing Sukuna. Mastering various Jujutsu techniques, including the unique “Domain Amplification” to counter Gojo’s infinity, Hanami met their demise during the high-stakes Shibuya Incident at the hands of the indomitable Satoru Gojo.

Dagon, the Water Curse: Dagon, an unnamed special-grade disaster curse, embodies humanity’s dread of water-related disasters. Armed with water-based techniques, Dagon showcased formidable strength by taking on three grade-one sorcerers simultaneously. Originally a cursed womb, Dagon’s mastery of advanced Jujutsu techniques and his regular role as the host for disaster curses’ meetings made him a force to be reckoned with. Seeking revenge for Hanami’s death, Dagon, too, met his end during the Shibuya Incident, this time at the hands of a reincarnated Toji Fushiguro.

Jogo, the Volcano Curse: Jogo, born of humanity’s fear of volcanic disasters, stood as one of the primary antagonists in Jujutsu Kaisen. Regarded as the leader among disasters, Jogo possessed complete mastery of Jujutsu techniques, particularly those centered around volcanoes and lava manipulation. Despite his formidable strength, he suffered a resounding defeat at the hands of Satoru Gojo, who deemed him weak. Jogo played a crucial role in sealing Satoru Gojo alongside Hanami, Mahito, and Choso, but met his ultimate demise at the hands of Ryoumen Sukuna.

Mahito, the Human Curse: Mahito, the youngest of the disaster curses, distinguished himself as one of the series’ main antagonists. His power lies in manipulating the shape of the human soul through the fearsome Idle Transfiguration technique. With just one touch, Mahito can bring about irreversible death to most sorcerers, making him a formidable adversary. His malevolence knows no bounds, as seen in his manipulation of Junpei and his ruthless actions, including the killing of prominent characters like Nanami and Nobara. Mahito battled fiercely in the Shibuya Incident, evolving during a final confrontation with Yuji Itadori and Aoi Todo. However, he ultimately met his match in Yuji Itadori, only to be absorbed by Kenjaku, sealing the Shibuya Incident’s tumultuous events.

As the intricate web of Jujutsu Kaisen continues to unfold, the saga promises more intense showdowns and revelations in the forthcoming seasons, keeping fans on the edge of their seats.
