The 44th issue of Weekly Shounen Jump released on 4th October 2021, revealed a special section focusing on Jujutsu Kaisen where manga author Gege Akutami answered questions regarding his “inspiration for the characters’ Curse techniques”.
A reliable source of immediate information on Jujutsu Kaisen, Twitter user @IDuckyx shared the page from the Weekly Shonen Jump.
According to the first character battle Q&A, Akutami revealed that he took inspiration for his recently disclosed character Kirara Hoshi from Hirohiko Araki’s masterpiece Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Part 6: Stone Ocean manga.
Kirara’s Love Rendezvous is one of the complex techniques Akutami has flashed in Jujutsu Kaisen manga for the fans to comprehend.
Akutami says he tried to create a cursed technique for Kirara like the “calorie counting” in Jojo Part 6 and beyond, but has added his own flair to compensate for the differences.
