Kanji and meanings of Gojo Satoru’s Cursed Technique Blue
Gojo Satoru’s cursed technique Lapse Blue is the technique that embodies the power of convergence.
It originally says JUTSUSHIKI JUNTEN AO in Japanese. The English translation is “Lapse Blue”. I think it’s a free translation and doesn’t fully reflect the original word. Let me explain the original word and what each kanji means!
JUTSU = spell, skill, magic
SHIKI = formula, style
Jutsushiki (cursed technique) is one of the terms of the Jujutsu Kaisen world, which is a special ability carved in a Jujutsu sorcerer’s body by nature. You can never acquire it intentionally.
JUN = obey the flow, order
TEN = roll, change the direction
JUNTEN isn’t a common word, but we can guess its meaning from kanji letters. It means that something goes following the trend.
AO is blue, azure. This character means Japanese traditional blue color, which is close to green rather than blue. We usually use the kanji letter below for blue color.
All the Gojo Satoru’s cursed techniques have the names of colors: red, blue, and purple. And all of them use classical kanji characters. The reason? Maybe it’s simply cooler!
