Kanji and meanings of Heavenly Restrictions
Heavenly Restrictions in Jujutsu Kaisen originally says TENYOJUBAKU in Japanese. It’s consisted of two words, TENYO + JUBAKU. I’ll explain what each kanji symbol stands for!
TEN = the heaven
YO = give
The word TENYO means “something given from heaven” and “gifted”. We usually use it for a good meaning, but I think that’s not always the case for Jujutsu Kaisen characters.
JU = curse
BAKU = bind, tie
JUBAKU means to put restrictions on someone’s freedom by psychological force. It can be used both for the body and mind. We use this word as almost the same meaning as “curse”.
Tenyojubaku in Jujutsu Kaisen is a kind of natural-born ability or a curse. Those who are born with Tenyojubaku have extraordinary power in a particular skill but lose something instead of it.
Characters with Tenyojubaku
Here’s the characters with Tenyojubaku in the story.
She was given super-human physical ability instead of having no cursed energy. It’s not she doesn’t have any cursed energy but has the same amount as a normal person (I mean, non-Jujutsu sorcerer).
She wears special glasses to see cursed spirits as she can’t sense them because of the lack of cursed energy.
He doesn’t have ANY cursed energy. His cursed energy is complete zero and it’s a very rare occasion. Toji was given overwhelming physical ability and five senses in exchange for that. Thanks to his extraordinary body performance, he can even sense cursed spirits without any tools.
Fushiguro Megumi evaluated him as “the complete form of Zenin Maki”.
He was born with a very fragile body and given an enormous amount of cursed energy enough to reach all over Japan.
