Nanami vs Mahito

Ijichi goes over the data that they collected regarding the deaths and disfigurations. They’re able to assume the position of the culprit’s hideout.

The next day Yuji went to talk to Junpei, and Ijichi asked Nanami why he lied about the info being an assumption. He answered that it is pretty evident that the location is a trap.

After Ijichi leaves, Nanami gets underground and finds a lot of disfigured humans. Nanami first encounters Mahito in a sewer, and Nanami expresses that he doesn’t like ruthless killing. Mahito says he’s glad that Gojo didn’t show up. Nanami simply says that he doesn’t like working overtime, and they need to get this done. Mahito attacks Nanami with his cursed powers, and Nanami quickly defends himself using his sword. The fight was thrilling to watch!

Is Nanami stronger than Mahito?

During Mahito and Nanami’s first fight, the cursed spirit defends himself against Nanami’s attacks but soon, his arm breaks due to Nanami’s cursed technique and the Ratio Technique, which marks the body in seven and three ratio, which helps the attacker hit a critical point. This soon sparks a conversation over the origin of the soul when Mahito expresses how he could reshape souls. Mahito has a cursed technique called Idle Transfiguration that allows him to reshape the soul, which transforms the body. For example, he healed his broken arm, but he can also use it for devastating results like using it to transform a miniature ex-human into a curse-like creature.

The disfigured human asks Nanami for help. This incident reminds him that his friend Shoko asked him to kill these people, even if it’s out of mercy. When Mahito realized Nanami’s spirit was wavering, he said that he was perfect for experimenting with his cursed technique, which could reshape souls. He quickly approaches him with enhanced speed and manages to touch the lower right side of his torso. He activates Idle Transfiguration, injuring Nanami’s side. Mahito taunts Nanami and makes him fall on one knee in pain. Nanami would be dead if he wasn’t subconsciously protecting his soul with his cursed energy and ran away because he was not able to defeat Mahito alone. Hence, Mahito is stronger than Nanami.
