An awesome Jujutsu kaisen highlights Maki Zenin’s recent brutal transformation in the manga! Gege Akutami has announced that the series’ official manga will be on hold for a while, with the creator focusing on his health, and fans (while understanding) have been a bit disappointed as it follows a huge chain of chapters featuring some of Maki’s best moments in the show to date. It looks like his loss in the Shibuya Incident was really just the beginning as it started to change a lot more before the next big arc in the series.
As the Culling game arc neared, Maki focused on the main focus of the series for a while as she and the other characters properly prepare for the upcoming Deadly Tournament. Following these violent breakouts, the series debuted with a Maki more powerful than ever, and to go with it, kicked off a brutal new makeover for the fan favorite. Now this makeover has come to life thanks to a great cosplay by artist @ kuroosimp.cos on Instagram! Check it out below:
Maki has become his strongest and most violent self to date, and it has been a huge hit with the fans. It will be some time before this look appears in the anime, as a potential second season will have to face the huge arc of the Shibuya incident before it even gets to that point, but it won’t be too long before that. that we happened to see Maki in action in the anime. She’s one of the few characters to make an appearance in the upcoming new film adapting the official prequel series, Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
It will be a very different take on Maki than what we saw in the main anime, as this prequel series follows the Yuta Okkotsu who had been mentioned in passing for brief moments in the series thus far. Showing his first year of enrollment in Tokyo Jujutsu Tech, the prequel shows how he bonded with other sophomore characters we’ll meet later like Maki, Panda, and Toge Inumaki. This lays the foundation for some important things to come later in the series, like this new version of Maki that we see in action through this awesome cosplay!
