Megumi’s Mahoraga summoning pose in JJK has become a meme unto itself
Megumi’s pose naturally made many people laugh because of what it represented. Summoning Mahoraga poses a serious threat as monsters can and will attack anyone who performs this technique. Megumi has since become a viral meme because, despite this threat to himself, many fans joke that he always tries to get himself killed. While many see this as a weakness, Megumi’s self-sacrificing nature is demonstrated in CBR’s Jujutsu Kaisen: Megumi’s 5 Greatest Strengths.
An An’s Megumi cover follows fellow Jujutsu Kaisen character Satoru Gojo in August 2023. The magazine also featured Atom from the popular anime Pluto and Netflix’s Spy x Family in 2022. Spy x Family broke new ground recently by appearing in popular women’s fashion magazine Non-No, as well as Jujutsu Kaisen when it was the face of two of the world’s largest newspapers — Asahi Shimbun and Yomiuri Shimbun — earlier this month. An An is one of the oldest and most famous magazines in Japan, launched in 1970.

While An An’s magazine would be great reading for those wanting to learn more about Megumi, it doesn’t compare to the fan-favorite anime currently streaming on Crunchyroll. The streaming platform describes the series: “Yuji Itadori is a boy with immense physical strength, although he lives a completely normal high school life. One day, to save a classmate attacked by curses, he ate Ryomen Sukuna’s finger, bringing the curse into his own soul. From then on, he shared a body with Ryomen Sukuna. Guided by the strongest sorcerer, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is accepted into Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights curses… and thus begins the heroic story of a boy who becomes a curse to break. minus a curse, a life you can never return to.”
