I liked, the ending now makes more sense why she has loads of bags
I can already see the trio falling into the classic roles 😁

Nobara flashback caught me off guard, like whaaaaaaat is this flashback doing here this early? It wasn't shown in the manga until later chapters, you know like last week's chapter? Not that it's bad though, it just felt somewhat weird because of what comes after.

the chemistry of the first-years is really enjoyable

Huh? Nobara flashback about Saori was always there since early chapters and her introduction. you just got bias because latest manga chapter

Already loving this! This episode was really great. What a trio ahahah And Yuuji fits really well with Nobara. She's quite good too but Yuuji is just a beast.

That prison scene can't be about them...c'mon, it just started.

Another good episode. The cast is looking pretty good with everyone having some interesting abilities. Also both the OP and ED are great which is the cherry on top. This looks like it has the highest ceiling of all the new anime series this season.

Didn't enjoy this episode as much as the last, but served as a good introduction to the female character.

I love the Yuuji and Nobara duo, their little relationship is mega funny!

So this is Ao no Exorcist, but more buddhist/japanese instead of the European take of that series.

Honestly, this is team 7 with a few more steps: Yuuji is kinda Naruto but better, the other dude is your typical black haired stoic dude and the girl is annonying. Is pretty obvious Kakashi will be the highlight of the show, personality wise. The animation is pretty good. I like it a lot.

The backstory was extremely meh.

Pretty good episode, and with that the main cast has been established. Nobara is awesome and also a dork in fact this whole team is just a bunch of dorks, a bunch of strong dorks that is lmao.

Animation as always is top notch, at this point we shouldn't worry anymore about animation quality because Mappa will surely deliver in that department. And so far, this show has been adapted perfectly. Keep it up Mappa.

Look I know Naruto comparisons are old and overplayed but I can't help but think of Team 7 when I see this squad of first years plus Gojo lol. Although I would say that the only ones who are even remotely similar to their Team 7 equivalent would be Fushiguro (stoic and serious like Sasuke) and Gojo (lighthearted and relaxed/chill but is actually, I'm assuming, a badass like Kakashi).
i don't blame you for comparing them. you'll soon realize how vastly different they are. Like how

Yeah I'm already liking the new girl a lot but her backstory so far was meh. The country town being so heavily against someone just because she's from the city feels a little forced.

small towns usually have tight communities and anyone coming from outside are seen as outsiders and are not easily accepted. so if the townspeople are as judgmental as Nobara's town is, then I'm not surprised that they would do this to Saori.

I liked the episode. Looks like Nobara would have a slightly bitchy attitude. Can't wait to see some sweet side from her in the future. Animation and the soundtrack was both on point. I hope MAPPA can continue this level of quality because they're really nailing it.

Hmm for people who haven't been to large cities Tokyo can indeed be quite impressive. Nobara's little talk with that scout sure was funny. She sure doesn't lack in self confidence huh. Yuji and Nobara though sure are like oil and fire though. The op inside the building though sure proved to be interesting in allowing us to see how a typical op will take place. Curious in that even standard curses can have this amount of cunning in them. That sure was a difficult choice that it presented Nobara though. Still in the end Nobara sure managed to get a satisfying revenge upon it. The treatment that the villagers gave Saori though sure was sickening. Overall a pretty strong ep that did well to introduce the character of Nobara both personally and in combat ability. While her relationship with the team is still rocky i think this battle served to improve her image of them from her initial opinion of them. Curious about the next ep though considering the womb that we saw in the end and the fact that one of the three died in dealing with it.

Excited to see the third first year.Nobara is so funny.
Less battle scenes in this episode but more interesting daily life.Quite shocked by the information that one character will die next episode.(Ծ‸Ծ)
It must be a sharp contrast.

"and one died" yeah yeah sure, but this is anime and people don't die when they are killed (especially not main characters) so I suppose it will be fine lmao. The girl is okay so far I guess but the bar is pretty low, since all the time the third one in the team is the uptight tsundere, so I was pretty sure that this would happen. But at least she's funny.

I really liked this anime! It's more realistic then the generic ones. Good written storyline with balanced action, thrill and fun. Animation and sound designs was amazing, MAPPA is going all over again. And it will have 24 episodes, yey!

Another great episode!
Yuuji is surely physically strong even without using Sukuna's curse power, he got some moves!

New Girl Nobara is so funny! She nailed it! It's unfortunate that she lived in such a place, good thing she decided to move because that place sucks.

Who died tho?

I think this was a nice introduction, looking how Nobara had a great interaction and kinda connected well enough with Itadori already on her first met. Was that weird? I think its a pretty understandable, knewing how Itadori personality and Nobara characteristic. I am so glad that she wasn't even a useless girl, she had a potential to led the team well enough. Unfortunately, she had a bad luck because of her lack of experience hinderred the way of her thinking, then as the result, like its almost ended up both of their lives. To be honestly, at the end, its kinda bugged me a lot, i hope she had a lesson from these first mission. Fortunately, Itadori came to saved you and the boy, and became a hero. The anticlimactic arrival of him was really needed to save the girl face. Their interaction afterwards, tho. Its hella funny xD.

Some of the backstory for Nobara already launched here. Its pretty much solidified her characters in one phrase, like these episode title: as a girl of steel. Still, i don't even know how she could gain the cursed power, together with all of the Jujutsus's witches. But, oh, well. Left aside that matter for a while, at least these little episode already confirmed Nobara was some kind of a bad ass girl!

A countryside girl that had one dream to actually met with her girl of steel from Tokyo, already formed her as a girl of steel too! Yeah her homeland was shit. Sometimes its happening. So yeah, its really understandable. Instead of she held the grudges to her homeland, became a cursed evil being and even killed all of the citizens there, she decided to left. Such a huge decision, and pretty much cleared her status as a strong girl on the team, and i already liking her backstory so far. Once again, motivation, kinda became one way to proceed you to be stronger than before. Because, the next one i got to see another great battle. I don't think i

NOBARA joins MEGUMI & YUUJI.
YUUJI's already compatible in dealing with her. As for MEGUMI, it will take time to know more about him.

Ending song is fun to watch. :)

Really excited for the next episode & the next one & ........

Things are getting more interesting now. It's a bit slow paced episode, yet I enjoyed it. Let's see when will MAPPA flex their godly animations again in the next episodes.

We now are introduced to "The Girl of Steel" Nobara Kugisaki. And damn she is an entertaining character. A thing I haven't said yet in this anime's forums is the comedy. I can't believe that the comedic shots in this anime is so good. Yuuji and Nobara already has that cat-and-dog chemistry (respectively), and a good one on that.

This week, the group went to Roppongi an abandoned building to exorcise some curses. Once again, Yuuji and Nobara together is so enjoyable to watch. We are showcased with Nobara's rural style powers fighting against a well-animated monsters and it is some A-tier visual pleasure. That hostage scene was also good and the action is dealt nicely. Another good episode with an extra scene at the end, MAPPA is flexing on us with a 3-winning streak and looks like the anime is still heating up.

Great way to introduce Nobara with Gojou giving them this test and all and a great episode overall. Some backstory on her too, some light action as well. The cast is great and their interactions make the show so far really enjoyable, looking forward to the next episode!

Let me just clear myself out, it's not that I don't like it, okay? I was just surprised to see it this early, like how elobarated her flashback here, just like in the latest chapter. That's all.

This was a pretty godawful episode. All the supposed action shows for Friday have apparently seen their budgets collapse into virtually nothing. The principal problem is that Nobody even did anything particularly ingenious or surprising, the same shout-exchange routine.
They walked right up to the monster, got surprised when the monster grabbed some random kid, and then killed it. All is so average, painfully average Then, apropos of absolutely nothing, her backstory and flashbacks gets spewed out for the last third or so of the episode. And you know how I love flashbacks spewed out of absolutely nowhere for no reason. It followed it up with more screaming.

Hmm looks like I'm the only one who thought Nobara was kinda annoying
Fuck reading signatures, you could be watching One Piece instead.

Give One Piece a shot, no listen. I started One Piece, I watched the first few episodes, I thought it was good. After watching episode 24, I was convinced it was a great show. After finishing episode 37, I was convinced it was a masterpiece and then it continued to deliver and deliver, and it still stands up now. Just try it once, if you can watch till ep 37 and still think that it's just an alright show at best, then drop it by all means. (write an L on your forehead while you're at it)

Thanks for reading, if you did. Also fuck your favourite anime if it's not One Piece.

This was a good introduction to Nobara, they showed that this cast is pretty entertaining in itself.
It was amazing to see all the abilities that our cast has and its cool see to see some curses getting exorcised.
Overall it was an amazing episode.

Finally got the gang all together and they got a tour of Tokyo! Messed up that curse, especially with straw doll. Really love the backstory for Nobara, she definitely has a lot of weight on her back.

Can't wait for the Womb fight.

I mean, yes and no
we already knew about saori but we didn't really see so many details and the treatment saori got; we only knew fragments but not that much that could be considered a real flash back

Of course this anime have a woman with shitty personality who likes to punch the mc for no reason. This is so funny 🤡. Oh and of course she's not a bad person, she just had difficulties in the past, and thats why she's so annoying, so sad 😢

I don't know why some people would think Nobara's backstory is supposed to be sad because duh, it's not. We got that small glimpse to understand her motives, not to cry rivers for her. What Nobara wants, Nobara gets. And she wants to meet Saori in Tokyo someday. A really straightforward goal, just like her character.

wowie this episode was over way too quickly! that was crazy entertaining. mannequins in a dark, quiet room are always an unsettling imagery.

seto asami can do no wrong, i like kugisaki already, she fits right in! i love the jujutsu voodoo stuff she did, that was so cool.

the humour is alright, pretty great initially even, but i sure hope it's not going to be like that every episode from here on, i mean the constant tone shifts will ruin it, it had such an ominous vibe going on but this episode was all over the place tone-wise & constantly thrown off with all the comedic reactions, i dunno seemed pretty out of place for me, if only they could pull it back a little, juuuust a little.







but i’ll probably remember over and over again
