Bottom ( (てい) (へん) Teihen?) is the eighteenth chapter of Gege Akutami's Jujutsu Kaisen.


Mai and Maki argue over which of them is lower class than the other, but Maki believes they're both at the bottom. Aoi Todo breaks up the argument and leaves with Mai. Nobara learns Maki has no cursed energy and respects her for being a strong jujutsu sorcerer. Meanwhile, Satoru holds a personal meeting with the Principal of Kyoto Jujutsu High.

Plot Details

Nobara appears to be lying unconscious between the rival Zenin sisters. Maki claims they're both worthless because all Mai can do is load objects with her cursed energy. Mai argues that having no cursed technique is still superior compared to having no cursed energy at all. Maki forgoes the argument and asks Nobara if she can stand. Mai claims she won't be able too, but Nobara suddenly recovers and wrestles Mai to the ground.

Nobara surprises Mai and holds her down.

They're interrupted when Aoi appears and tells Mai that its time to leave. Aoi says he has to make it in time for the Tall Idol Takada's meet in greet in Tokyo. Before they leave, Mai reminds her rivals that they'll being going all out in the Kyoto Goodwill Event.

Afterward, Nobara asks Maki if it's true that she doesn't have cursed energy. Maki confirms and claims she became a jujutsu sorcerer in order to prove her doubters wrong. Nobara is impressed with Maki's answer, stating she as a lot of respect for Maki, and they leave to go see the nurse.

Satoru meets with the Kyoto Principal.

Meanwhile, at Kyoto Jujutsu High, Yaga is set to meet with Principal Yoshinobu Gakuganji. However, Satoru Gojo arrives in his stead, eager to ask a few questions despite how rude his intrusion comes off. Satoru demands to know more about how the higher-ups at jujutsu fed Yuji to the wolves. He reveals that he was attacked by two special grade curses and reveals they were able to communicate with reasonable intelligence.

Satoru believes the next generation of both jujutsu sorcerers and cursed spirits won't be limited to special grade. Before leaving, Satoru warns the old man that he's not the only one who's going to question the authority at Jujutsu High, irritating Yoshinobu.

One month later in September at Kinema Cinema in Kawasaki City, three deformed bodies of high school students are found. Leaving the scene is Mahito, a cursed spirit acquainted with Geto and his group. He's spotted by a human and is surprised to be seen. At the same time, just outside the theater, Yuji Itadori arrives to investigate the crime.
