“Jujutsu Kaisen” was serialized in “Weekly Shonen Jump” in March 2018. The same work by Gege Akutami, which depicts the battle between the “curse” that embodies the curse born from negative human emotions such as envy, shame, and resentment, and the “witch doctor” who enshrines if by magic, has been made into TV animation. It was October 2020. Originally a popular work, it has been one of the most notable works now, with a cumulative circulation of over 50 million since the start of TV anime broadcasting. Has been established.
Why did the pre-cut animation of “Jujutsu Kaisen” episode 24 accelerate the popularity of “Jujutsu Kaisen”? As explained earlier in Real Sound, but there are several reasons, but in this article, Yuhito Torakane, the main character who carefully expresses the charm of the character drawn in the original with a voice play. Of Enoki AtsushiWataru, I want to pay attention to.
Pursuing real emotions that are born at that moment without adding or subtracting
Originally, Yuhito Torakane attended Sugisawa Third High School in Sendai. Although he had extraordinary physical abilities, he had no magical power and was a “normal” first-year high school student in a world unrelated to witch doctors. On his way home from school, he continued to visit his only relative, a hospitalized grandfather, who died after saying, “You are strong, so help others” and “Die surrounded by many people.”
That night, I met Megumi Fushiguro, a first-year student at Jujutsu College, and to help the seniors of the occult study group, a special-grade curse, ” Double-sided Fetishism “Since he swallowed “Ryomensukuna’s finger,” he shared his body with the inn, also known as the “King of Curses,” and gained powerful curse power. Originally, he would be sentenced to death in secret based on the rules of magic, but he will be transferred to a magic college with the help of a special-grade witch doctor, Satoru Gojo, and will fight as a witch doctor. That’s a rough introduction to the story, but what should be noted here is that Yuhito was an “ordinary” high school student who had nothing to do with magic.
It is not uncommon for the hero who lived an everyday life to get caught up in an incident or get caught up in the waves of the story by meeting someone. Still, Yuhito in the first episode of the TV anime “Jujutsu Kaisen” is based on the original story. I remember what I felt like an “ordinary” high school student as I got the impression. For example, Yuhito’s expression that he doesn’t realize the death of his grandfather. The performer’s ego, such as “I don’t know the actual feeling, but it still contains a little sadness and confusion,” can’t be felt at all. Was there.
This is the actual value of voice actor Junya Enoki. His play, which straightforwardly expresses the character’s emotions without adding or subtracting, may seem pale to viewers who are accustomed to anime. Enoki’s style is not a deformed play, but a natural play-in his own words, Enoki’s style of pursuing “realistic lines without lies that I think so properly” is a work that is addictive and a work that is not. It is also true that there is. In that sense, Yuhito Torakane from “Jujutsu Kaisen” was utterly addicted.
The main characters in the early stages are Satoru Gojo, the most substantial witch doctor, Megumi Fushiguro, who is already mature as a witch doctor in the same grade as Yuhito, Masamichi Yamo, the president of the magic college, and the king of curses, double-sided inn. Only “unusual” characters have a substantial impact. Yukito, who gets caught up in them, appears to be the closest to the viewer, and when Enoki’s realistic play rides on Yuhito, the viewer becomes more and more immersed in the story as “oneself.”
