Jujutsu Kaisen Fans Confused About This Character's Role

Published

on

As the manga reaches a crucial point, fans of Jujutsu Kaisen fail to understand the role of a particular character in the story.

Jujutsu Kaisen is full of great characters who contributed significantly to the plot. However, some fans feel that Shoko Ieiri's contribution to the story has been almost non-existent thus far. According to them, the character's role in the story is ambiguous since she has yet to do anything truly impactful.

Shoko is an exorcist specializing in the Reversal spell. She is the only known exorcist capable of healing others with her Reversal spell, making her a valuable member within the exorcist community. Shoko was also Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto's classmate when they were still students at the Tokyo Exorcism School.

With her Reversal spell and her connection to Gojo and Geto, Shoko should have been an important character with a decisive role in the story. However, this was not the case. She appears very little in the story and only has a minor role during certain key events such as the Shibuya Drama or the Murderous Hunt, while other exorcists put their lives on the line.

Although Masamichi Yaga, the principal of the Tokyo Exorcism School and Shoko's former teacher, has previously explained that she was kept away from the front lines because of her value as a healer, fans are always disappointed by the minimal importance of his presence in the plot. Because not only is she practically absent from all major events, but she also doesn't do anything significant during Gojo's Past Arc.

And while the battle against Sukuna has been going on for a while now, fans of Jujutsu Kaisen wonder what the role of this character is. Many expressed their opinion on the matter on social media. A fan wrote on X (formerly Twitter): “Has his Reversal Spell ever benefited any of the main characters besides Maki?”

Another user called it “useless” while some criticized her for doing nothing but smoking while other characters died. However, some fans suggest that she might have a bigger role in the future.

Many characters, such as Yuta, Kusakabe and Choso, were mortally wounded during their fights against Sukuna. So, Shoko gets the opportunity to shine and finally contribute to the story. However, it remains to be seen whether he will be given a significant role in the rest of the story.
