How Nanami Die In shibuya incident arc in Jujutsu Kaisen
However, no sooner had Nanami and the Zenin family managed to defeat Mahito’s cursed object than Jogo appeared and burned Nanami to ashes in seconds. But he manages to rise somehow with half of his body burned on the right. Meanwhile, Nanami dreamt that she would finally rest when she retired and get that house in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. He blasts a horde of deformed mortals who try to surround him and moves forward until he runs into a hand that stops him.
However, this hand isn’t nice; it’s Mahito’s hand. Mahito informs him that this is his last moment and then asks him if he wants to chat since they have been long together. Yuji comes in to see both of them. Nanami tells Yuji that he has got this covered with a bright smile on his face, but Mahito blows him away right after, so Yuji can rest.
One of the saddest moments in Jujutsu Kaisen was the death of Nanami in the Shibuya Incident Arc. He was a nice and honorable man just trying to perform his duties and save the innocents. The death of his character proved that the world of Jujutsu Kaisen is harsh and unpredictable, as it can easily take away the lives of strongest sorcerers.
Nevertheless, Nanami did not die for nothing. He motivated Yuji to fight on despite a seemingly lost war and demonstrated the world that there exist individuals who are willing to stand for justice regardless of the circumstance.
