Jujutsu Kaisen: Who Is Noritoshi Kamo?
Jujutsu Kaisen is among the most popular and best-selling manga of all time. It has been adapted into an anime series, which has become popular both in Japan and in the West. Written by Gege Akutami, the manga is still ongoing and is currently on one of its best and most thrilling arcs. But, regardless of the plot, the characters of Jujutsu Kaisen are another amazing aspect of this well-written series. They are odd, diverse, and quite intriguing, as well as well-written, but what interests us today is one particular character from the manga and anime, Noritoshi Kamo, whom we will talk about in this article.
Noritoshi Kamo is a young Jujutsu sorcerer in his final year at the Kyoto Metropolitan Curse Technical College; he is also the heir of the Kamo clan. He uses Blood Manipulation techniques. Sure of himself and his abilities, Noritoshi generally adopts a rather haughty attitude. He usually fights from a distance with a bow and arrow, but he also defends himself very well in hand-to-hand combat.
The rest of this article is going to be about Noritoshi Kamo, as well as his role in the story of Jujutsu Kaisen. You’ll find out who he is and how he ties into the story of Jujutsu Kaisen, as he is a lesser-known supporting character from the series, although he has appeared in both the manga and the anime. This article will contain numerous spoilers, so be careful how you approach it.
The leader of the Kamo clan had an extramarital affair with his lover, and that relationship resulted in Noritoshi. Noritoshi’s mother was forced to leave the Kamo domain due to mistreatment, leaving him behind. Noritoshi was constantly favored and shown kindness by the clan members, even reaching as far as the Kamo clan’s designated heir because the official wife of the clan leader was unable to conceive kids who could employ cursed tactics. Noritoshi travels with teachers and students from Kyoto to the Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College on the day of the Kyoto Goodwill Events.
As Satoru Gojo reveals to all those present that Yuji Itadori is still alive, Noritoshi is present and given a memento from Satoru’s journey. Afterward, Noritoshi joins the full Kyoto squad for the conference to discuss preparations for the competition. Aoi becomes angry and leaves after Headmaster Yoshinobu orders them to execute Yuji. When Noritoshi attempts to stop him, Aoi threatens to kill everyone. After then, Noritoshi talks about their next steps with the group.
Headmaster Yoshinobu gives Noritoshi a weapon to control a grade 1 curse spirit before the competition starts so he can kill Yuji. The moment the event starts, the Kyoto students track Yuji down and attack him. Aoi, however, stops them, forcing them to turn around. Then, when Noritoshi and Kasumi Miwa run away, they come across Megumi Fushiguro and Maki Zen’in. Then, when Megumi queries whether they are attempting to murder Yuji, Noritoshi responds that they have good grounds to do so.
Megumi and Noritoshi are still squabbling inside a structure as they continue to exchange blows. Megumi manages to defend himself when Noritoshi fires his arrows at her, and he finds that the arrows are covered in blood as a result. After realizing that Megumi is being cautious, Noritoshi considers how the latter’s skills operate. Megumi is rendered blind by Noritoshi’s final arrow, and he seizes the opportunity to approach him. Megumi can push the Kyoto student away as Noritoshi uses his Momentum of the Flowing Red Scale technique, and they have a brief talk.
He then utilizes a shikigami to divert Noritoshi so he may call up Max Elephant to drag Noritoshi into a public space. Then Megumi throws Nué towards Noritoshi, who succeeds in controlling the shikigami. The two fight, but Hanami and Toge Inumaki break it up by utilizing an Incantation to make the two flee. When Noritoshi, Megumi, and Toge ponder their options, Hanami unexpectedly strikes them.
While Noritoshi and Megumi strike him ineffectively, Toge keeps Hanami in check. The three students then flee as Hanami justifies his desire to exterminate all mankind. They then combine their methods to hold Hanami and discover that the Curse’s limbs are its weakest link. They finally begin to doubt their ability to escape the barrier the enemy has built, but Toga’s throat falls away, and Nué is slain.
Noritoshi receives a strong strike from Hanami, but Megumi intervenes to save him. Momo Nishimiya then leads Noritoshi and Toge beyond the screen. Following the capture of the intruders, Noritoshi receives medical attention for his wounds and attends a conference alongside the other pupils and professors to decide whether to continue the competition. The kids then decide to carry on with the challenge, and it is decided that the final test will be a baseball game.
Yuji and Noritoshi talk about Yuji’s decision to become an exorcist while Noritoshi is at bat, which results in Noritoshi missing three strikes. Noritoshi congratulates Maki on his throw after he later smacks Aoi in the face with the ball. Noritoshi returns to Kyoto with the rest of his classmates and professors when the game and tournament are over.
On October 31, Utahime Iori, the Kyoto students, and Noritoshi traveled to Shibuya by train. Noritoshi believes that Mechamaru doesn’t have high expectations for them as they go from Kasumi to grieve his passing. In a last-ditch effort to save Satoru, Noritoshi and his supporters arrive in Shibuya at 11:36 p.m. and start shooting at Suguru Geto. Suguru avoids Noritoshi’s arrows as he fires them at him. He then departs to assist Yuji, but Choso unexpectedly shows up and tells Suguru that he is, in fact, Noritoshi Kamo (a Kamo clan progenitor), confusing Noritoshi. Utahime and Atsuya Kusakabe inform them that Noritoshi’s ancestor was considered the worst exorcist ever.
When Noritoshi witnesses Choso employ Red Blood Cell Manipulation, he is even more perplexed because he is well-versed in his magic. Later, when Uraume has defeated the Exorcists and is about to kill them, Yuki Tsukumo arrives just in time to save everyone. Afterward, Noritoshi informs Panda and Yuji that they can engage in combat with their foe. The three then begin to fight, but Uraume immediately freezes Noritoshi. Yuki Tsukumo arrives just as the Exorcists will be murdered, saving everyone. Ultimately, their adversaries left Shibuya carrying the Edge of Torment with Satoru within.
And while we know that Noritoshi Kamo is still alive in the series, he has not appeared since the Shibuya Incident. He was a very intriguing character, especially because of the enormous loyalty he showed his headmaster, whose intentions were not always the purest, especially concerning both Itadori and Gojo. Still, he was shown to be a very powerful and intriguing character, so we ultimately decided to present him to you and tell you a bit about him and his role in the story. As of now, it is not known whether Noritoshi Kamo will make any further appearances in the series.
