伏黒の領域展開の手の印 Jujutsu Kaisen

Megumi Fushiguro is one of the most popular characters in Jujutsu Kaisen.

When Megumi Fushiguro expand the domain, Chimera Shadow Garden, he makes a unique hand sign.

In this article, a native Japanese writer explained Fushiguro’s domain expansion and the original source of the hand signs including Japanese backgrounds.

Ten Shadows Technique

Megumi’s cursed technique is Ten Shadows Technique (十種影法術).

Ten Shadows Technique is a cursed technique that is inherited by Zen’in family.

The fact that Sukuna praised Ten Shadows Technique and an user of Ten Shadows Technique killed an user of Limitless with Six Eyes 400 years ago, suggests Ten Shadows Technique is a very strong cursed technique.

In addition, the original source of the Ten Shadows Technique must be Tokusanokandara (十種神宝) the ten kinds of ancient Japanese treasures which is said to be able to revive the dead.

Quote: Jujutsu Kaisen, 十種神宝

In fact, the marks of Tokusanokandara are engraved on the Shikigami’s bodies.

Chimera Shadow Garden

The name of Fushiguro’s domain expansion is Chimera Shadow Garden (嵌合暗翳庭).

The meaning of each kanji is as follows.

Chimera Shadow Garden (嵌合暗翳庭)
嵌合:The state of being fitted together like a coffin
暗翳:Dark shadow
庭 :Garden

Therefore, the Japanese meanings of 嵌合暗翳庭 should be the domain perfectly confined in a garden filled with dark shadows.

And the effect of Chimera Shadow Garden is to expand the sea of shadows and launch attacks from it.

For example, Fushiguro created his alter egos from the sea of shadows and had them attack.

In addition, Fushiguro’s domain does not have a sure-hit cursed technique, so it expands the cursed technique and demonstrates 120% of its potential.

Also, Fushiguro’s domain is incomplete, and not closed without a real space such as a gymnasium.

Fushiguro’s domain is still powerful even in such an incomplete one, so it will become quite strong if it becomes completed in the future.

By the way, in the official fanbook, Akutami said that the reason why Fushiguro can use Domain Expansion is that Itadori can use Black Flash.

Hand Sign

When Megumi Fushiguro expand the domain, he makes a hand sign holding both hands together.

The original source of this hand sign must be Bhaisajyaguru (薬師如来)

Quote: Jujutsu Kaisen Vol. 7, 薬師如来印

Bhaisajyaguru is one of the gods in Buddhism who removes the pain of this world.

The wishes granted by Bhaisajyaguru are called Thetwelve Vows including curing illnesses and providing food, clothing and shelter.

However, so far, it has not been confirmed that the domain of Fushiguro is effective in curing diseases.

Fushiguro’s domain is still incomplete, so such new effects may appear in the future.

In addition, it is also known that Bhaisajyaguru is accompanied by Twelve Heavenly Generals.

Moreover, General Makora is in the Twelve Heavenly Generals, and he must be the original source of the Eight-Handled Sword Divergent Sila Divine General Mahoraga in Ten Shadows Technique.

魔虚羅
Quote: Jujutsu Kaisen Vol. 14

That is because they has the same kanji 神将 and pronounce まこら (Makora).

By the way, there are 3 more shikigami that Fushiguro hasn’t subdued, so one of the Twelve Heavenly Generals might be among them.
