Takeshi Iguchi ( () (ぐち) たけし Iguchi Takeshi?) is a minor character in the Jujutsu Kaisen series. He is second-year student at Sugisawa Third Municipal High School and was a member of the school's Occult Research Club alongside his friends Yuji Itadori and Setsuko Sasaki.


Iguchi is a relatively tall teenage boy with short black hair that juts upward to a point toward the back of his head. His eyes normally remain closed and he has thick black eye brows, long sideburns, as well and wide lips.

Iguchi wears a typical school uniform, a black gakuren and white shoes. While staying in the hospital, Iguchi had bandages wrapped around his head and wore stripped hospital clothing.


Compared to Sasaki, Iguchi is a relatively calm person and a typical teenager who wants to enjoy their time with friends. He's into spooky things and the supernatural just like Yuji and Sasaki and has his nose in the school's rumor mill.


Fearsome Womb Arc

At the Occult Research Club's room, the club members were playing a game of Kokkuri, until the student council president interrupts and informs them that their room is being taken due to a lack of activity report. Sasaki tells the club's theory that the reason for the school's rugby field getting closed is due to it being haunted by a missing man from thirty years prior, but the student president debunks it, saying it was due to ticks.

The occult research club gets cursed.

The student council president then informs them that Yuji is not even in the club and the club doesn't have the minimum required members.[1] Sasaki and Iguchi then go with Yuji to sort things out with the Takagi-sensei, who changed his club activity. After sorting things out with Takagi-sensei, Yuji told Sasaki and Iguchi that he liked the club and wanted to stay, to which they blushingly agree.[2]

Later that night, Sasaki and Iguchi sneaked into school and while in the Occult Research Club room, they try to unseal the cursed charm they found. As they succeed, they are surprised it was a human-looking finger, but in that moment they got attacked by curses.[3] As they ran, they got separated and when they reunited, Iguchi had a curse attached to his head.[4] When Yuji and Megumi reached them, Sasaki and Iguchi were already unconscious and the curse was attempting to eat them, but Yuji saved them.[5][6]

The next day, Sasaki was at the hospital watching over the injured Iguchi and blaming herself for what happened. Yuji then insists that he is to blame for finding the charm and that people capable of healing Iguchi will come tomorrow.[7][8]

Abilities and Powers

Overall Skill: Iguchi is a normal human, a non-sorcerer with no jujutsu abilities or resistance to cursed spirits. He and Sasaki were both attacked by curses and nearly killed, but were able to recover from being cursed after going to the hospital.
