Yuji and Choso’s duel was presented interestingly in the manga and was later adapted very well in the anime version. Jujutsu Kaisen. But did you know their duel was inspired by The Raid 2 Are not?
Self Gege Akutami once frankly admitted that the author was inspired by Yuji and Choso’s duel The Raid 2 . He wrote this in his article in Jujutsu Kaisen Fanbook.
“The battle of Yuji vs Choso from the Shibuya Incident was inspired by this. The battle has the feel of The Raid Gokudo (released in 2014).”
Here, Raid Gokudo is the title of The Raid 2 when it was released in Japan.
Time Gege Akutami When I was in school, there was a very famous movie at that time, that is The Raid . This is a low-budget Indonesian martial arts action film. The Raid Without overusing special effects, the actual martial arts battle scenes are the highlight of the movie.
When watching movies, Akutami became interested in the martial arts movements used by the characters, specifically the martial art pencak silat. According to him, pencak silat’s fighting techniques are really impressive when depicted in action scenes.
The author is not only interested in the film The Raid since school, reason Akutami really wanted to include pencak silat battle scenes in his work after seeing Tatsuki Fujimoto also included similar content in the Chainsaw Man manga. You can read the reference to the silat match in chapter 62, precisely during the fight between Quanxi and Yoshida.
The fight of Yuji vs Choso in the Shibuya incident was inspired by The Raid 2 , specifically the duel scene between Rama and The Assassin in the kitchen. For the manga version Jujutsu Kaisen you can read about this match in chapters 101 to 105. Currently, this scene has been made into an anime version in the latest episode of Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, specifically episode 13.
