[After 2.6 Irodori event & 3.2 archon quest + small references from Archon quests]submitted by melonsapphire to Genshin_Lore [link] [comments]
This might be a LOOONG post because I'm attaching many clues from several quests. Please bear with me and have fun reading!
What I'm trying to pinpoint in this post is related to my title. Hoyoverse has been teasing us with this for a long time now, and based on the recent quest, they brought it up again. How this "secret" is probably referring towards the outcome of Traveller's fate or destiny later. Which sounds to me will be touch upon again during the revelation of the Abyss Order's plan and Celestia during the final chapters.
Remember that one scene after Tighnari was struck by lightning? Yes, the discussion following after that really made me remember Ayato's statement from Irodori festival. First, I'll recap a few images before evaluating. This shows the conversation during Act 5 Sumeru Archon Quest at Pardis Dhyai.
Haypasia was a threat to the Fatui, because she carries a knowledge of Scaramouche's past. Is it the truth on probably \"how\" he was created \"artificially\" by a God/Archon?
Note that after the final act of 3.2: using all of Sumeru people's wisdom through Akasha to defeat scaramouche has made them discovered that the Akademiya's scandal was on creating a "fake god". But not specifically on the "detailed process" on how the Akademiya did it.
A recap from the scene in eremite camp during Act 4 Sumeru 3.1, how far the Akademiya only knew about the \"fake god's identity\".
What they only knew was that the \"specimen\" they were experimenting on is one of the harbinger. Perhaps not digging deep into the Fatui's secret.
Now, why did I emphasise this relation to Irodori festival?
Again, the significance of the \"secret\" the Balladeer possessed: Ayato mentioned the identity of the infiltrator was not so hard to guess. Hence, Fatui is the most appropriate.
Now his final question. The most relevant was the 2nd answer that some of us chose, due to it's specificity among all three. But even Ayato said he didn't know the answer. So back then, we couldn't confirm anything yet.
Thus, it's basically confirmed now that the infiltrator ("He") is indeed one of the male Fatui members. Not Scaramouche himself. Because there was a confusion back then when some people voiced out it was him, which to me(and maybe some of us) felt it didn't make sense.
Alright. Let's say, what if...---the secret is actually relating to the Knowledge that Ei's possessed when creating her puppets?
Abyss Order scavenging on any knowledge about ancient civilization. As seen in Enkanomiya, Sal Vindagnyr, the Chasm etc. to assist them in their god creation.
Now, please look at these conversations. Please take note of the terms and their meanings because these are probably clues to our Traveller's endgame goal:
"If fate is the ultimate knowledge, then your future will be the ultimate fate. " -Nahida to Traveller (Sumeru Act 5 in Sanctuary of Surasthana.)
"Traveller, what is your ambition*?""To be reunited with my brother, I guess?" -Traveller
"But that's merely a small goal, based on what preoccupies you here and now. Your ambition should be something that* transcends the world below and starry sky above. Something that shines in unison with fate itself."
"Command me to step aside, and show me that you're worthier than I to rescue her. Then, the threads of all 'fate' will be yours to reweave*." -DainsleifWell well well.. Though we don't know how this will be: The fact that despite the Traveller is a foreign entity/descender, their ascending method is oddly similar(?) to Teyvat's vision holders. It requires an AMBITION+other criteria. Which is quite fascinating to me. Very interesting, right?
As we can see, there's a recurring pattern relating to divinity:
Technology, knowledge, "creation", fate, ambition, vision, "god". God= which makes up the entirety of genshin's lore.This brought me to the realisation of how this secret of "ancient" knowledge on creation shapes on one of the truths of Teyvat. Ofc there are other well-discussed theories on those like eg. how Teyvat might be in a simulation, Teyvat is inverted, the origin of Celestia etc.
But the point of my post is: why are the Fatui so reluctant to share this "secret"? I don't have the definite answer. Most probably, if anyone outside the God's authority knew this, it would interfere with the Tsaritsa's plan to fight the Heavenly Principles. Maybe there's so much more than this, and we don't know how deep this could impact Teyvat as a whole. This would definitely be explained in future quests. Remember, what's important is the "content of the Secret".
Finally, connecting all these clues had made me curious on some questions:
"This world has people who gained Visions, and those who did not."The traveller answers are limited to: "(A)Those with Visions. (B)Those without Visions. (C)Perhaps..none of them do." Hmmm, very intriguing. Meaning: The celestia is definitely hiding something..and it's pretty shocking in my opinion.
So what is the Celestia hiding? My final thoughts:
It's logical, because we don't know where the Original Celestial gods came from, it's impossible that all of them came outside of teyvat. It doesn't tally with what Nahida said that there were only four descenders. (It's only possible if, and only if, someone is interfering with the Irminsul's memory again.)
This brought me to this mindblowing theory:
Azhdaha was an elemental being, which had lived longer than Zhongli. And based on Enkanomiya, the most ancient history of Teyvat is the Vishaps. Which are the original and native elemental creatures. Belonging to the Vishap Realm/Elemental Realm.
= In conclusion, the secret the Fatui is trying to hide is most probably closely-related to Celestia. So it's not about Scara, but the knowledge/technique used to create him and the fact that a God made him is the problem. And why the Abyss Order is so keen on creating one such god to overthrow Celestia, because with this "secret", they have another trump card in their hands ➔A mechanized god that can fight on equal standards with the artificially-created Celestial gods.
= Thus, this brings another whole new dimension to the Traveller's and their abyss sibling's potential motive when confronting the Celestia later in the future. Their ultimate fate and their role to reweave all threads of fate.
**Thanks for reading! I'm just compiling these hints to let you guys remember certain dialogues that I felt were important. The 3.2 AQ from Pardhis Dhyai made me more convinced about this secret again after so long. Is the secret that I discussed in this post really what I think it is?
**Feel free to comment! Would be happy to listen to your thoughts.

Hello everyone. I started writing this after wanting to rethink my earlier post now the primary themes of the Culling Game saga have been laid out clearly enough.submitted by JJKReader to Jujutsushi [link] [comments]
Where the first part of Jujutsu Kaisen was about the falls, death and the crumbling of society. Shibuya was the death and fall to rock bottom – the Culling Games is the climb to the pinnacle. The rebirth of the world and the teachings of Satoru Gojo.
This saga feels connected to Shibuya by the major themes laid out across the series from the introduction to said climax as two particular points: “time” – the importance of specific dates, periods and it’s unrelenting march, and “favouritism” – the act of choosing one over another, defining or defying a perceived fairness.
Many are likely confused why I’m using these concepts instead of the obvious choices of “life” and “death” or “power” and “responsibility”. It’s mainly because of exactly that: they’re too obvious. By taking a face value reading of the series, we tend to ignore the symbolism behind it and make Jujutsu Kaisen into nothing but an incredibly good shonen.
When theories are based solely on the power systems and genre tropes rather than Gege’s thought processes we miss the delicate intent and care he obviously puts into every chapter if not every panel.
“Time” and “favouritism” are examples of how important themes get lost in this noise.So instead let’s try to emphasise how these themes are connected and everywhere if you sit down and read on legends in Japanese culture and Pure Land Buddhism as the basis for the series. And yes, Nobara is deeply important to this discussion.
We start by suggesting that the most important reference to time and favouritism can be seen the three periods in which we are told that the chosen protector of Jujutsu Society, the Six Eyes and Limitless user, existed within. These are in my opinion representative of the three ages of the dharma in Pure Land Buddhism each separated by about 500 years – the approximate period of the Star plasma vessel and the Six Eyes fated cyclical rebirths to support Tengen and Japan’s barrier.
The Heian period is then the Former Age of the Dharma in which the original teachings are established – Jujutsu Society and the Three Clans. The Edo period is then the Middle Age where these great Clans all re-emerge as they once did in their greatest forms – here the Six Eyes and Ten Shadows users stood equally matched. Finally, the modern period is the Latter Age – where it all comes crumbling down.
The Age where the current Buddha – represented in the series by Satoru Gojo – is replaced by something else. Maitreya – The future Buddha. This is presented as early as Chapter 11 and 18 by Gojo’s conclusion that some of his chosen students bear the potential to equal him with time and that in time he will unleash a generation that will surpass Special Grade.
From Jan Nattier – The Meanings of the Maitreya Myth (note: bolding in following quotes is my own):
the Maitreya myth occurs in Buddhist literature in a wide variety of forms. There are stories from China in which Maitreya is described in messianic terms and is expected to usher in a "golden age" for his followers; in texts from the Turfan region of Central Asia, by contrast, Maitreya appears as a most conservative figure, guaranteeing the continuity of the Dharma established by sakyamuni (and, incidentally, the stability of the local government) into the distant future. We read of Tibetan mystics aspiring to rebirth in Maitreya's heavenly realm and of Japanese peasants hoping to be reborn during Maitreya's tenure on earth. Finally, although the majority of tradition's place Maitreya's coming in some unimaginably distant age, in a few cases the myth has been rewritten to foretell his appearance in the immediate future […]https://preview.redd.it/4due7gt9fgh91.png?width=997&format=png&auto=webp&s=d8cba760a05bf8147ec6d473e56e240fb3ac7357
From this we suggest the Culling Game is not about who will die as Shibuya was but who will remain – the new strongest.Kenjaku’s entire plan seems to have been written with the purpose of fitting an allegory of awakening a new Buddha. His plan to force Tengen and the participants of the Culling Game to wade through the seven days of suffering until Maitreya’s rise. From Edward Conze’s translation of the Buddhist Scriptures:
They also will lose their doubts, and the torrents of their cravings will be cut off: free from all misery they will manage to cross the ocean of becoming; and, as a result of Maitreya's teachings, they will lead a holy life.This is much like the process stated in Chapters 147-148, confirmed to be part of a greater scheme by Reggie in Chapter 167 – the presence of such obscenely strong players shows that the Culling Game must be intended to reach multiple deadlocks such as that in Sendai. Kenjaku is not waiting for the players to wallow, he’s watching to see which of them rise to the top across the different barriers before unleashing some new apocalyptic event – the bomb that will dry this “ocean”.
The sea-life migration allegory into the world of curses or “the Other Side” also likely extends to both the path of enlightenment but the oceans lowering as Maitreya is reborn. These references connected to blessings and periods are constant everywhere and related to the greatest question in Jujutsu Kaisen (and the one the bomb is likely an attempt to answer) - “Who represents Maitreya as the one who will equal or surpass Satoru Gojo?”
The argument we’re making here is that there’s currently many options laid through the story for an answer to this through the different characters’ ideologies, visions for the future and the targets for their violence/scorn. All of them are valid for reasons I’ll talk about soon, but so far I’d say the series has focused on two clear candidates prior to the Culling Games.
The first is the resurrection of Gojo himself – as some claim the Buddha is reborn with Maitreya as his new life as favoured by the cycle of rebirth. After all, Maitreya’s story parallels the Buddha’s. From Joseph Kitagawa – The Career of Maitreya, with Special Reference to Japan:
[He] was believed to have lived many lives before being born as a prince. And, like Gautama, he forsook his comfortable life in the palace. He attained Buddhahood under a dragon flower tree, which is his "bodhi tree."Gojo, as the reincarnation of the Six Eyes and current Buddha stand-in, is the prime contender for the future Buddha/leader of this world. He chooses to ignore his destiny to complete the merger, as the previous Six Eyes had, and instead wishes to overthrow the corrupt Jujutsu Society. He awakens to the Core of Cursed Energy by the trees of the Tomb of the Star. Maitreya was also said to appear “not in his fully evolved buddha form, but as a person of regal bearing, very handsome and taller than those around him.” and obtain enlightenment in a single day.
In the Culling Games, our protagonists are therefore attempting to place Gojo as the new Buddha to sweep over the old order of the Three Clans and in doing so are forced to ascend toward that level themselves and reach enlightenment. A story of overcoming or the rebirth of the old Six Eyes/Buddha with a new unique individual. One who will usher in a Golden Age while answering the question of what made Satoru Gojo the strongest: his unique birth and body or the beliefs that he instilled into his students.
But by taking on his responsibilities and carrying on his will to protect the people, the surviving students are now all posed as candidates for the next Gojo themselves.
Any of them may be the one who will rebuild Jujutsu Society in their own image.The myriad possibilities, lines of foreshadowing and red herrings towards the importance of the final Buddha is an important part of the allegory. From the Napier essay again:
It is important to state at the outset of our analysis that not every appearance of Maitreya in Buddhist literature constitutes, ipso facto, an instance of the Maitreya myth. Like countless other Buddhas and bodhisattvas in the Buddhist (particularly Mahayana) pantheon, Maitreya often appears in Buddhist literature merely as a member of the supporting cast [...]Maitreya’s character, like all Buddhas, is often quiet until their time comes and the way of the current Buddha falls. Rather than the obvious choice of Gojo, it could very likely be a character who has yet to reach their true potential and enlightenment. As such, Gege represents the other clear option for his allegorical stand in for Maitreya in one of Gojo’s students – Yuji as the “chosen” vessel for Sukuna.
Due to the biological basis of CTs and CE reserves, Yuji is already physically able to match Sukuna even if he may never reach that level of jujutsu skill. He stands apart as Gege casts him as the main protagonist, the main antagonist and also as a side character, or “cog”, with a greater purpose yet unknown. He has an unusual birth with circumstances and connection to his amazing strength currently unknown – Kenjaku could have experimented with him inside the womb for ten months or more as Maitreya’s origin dictates.
This imagery might be combined with the “two faces” of Sukuna, Yuji housing two souls and the future Buddha’s two names. The first and primary name of “Maitreya” is derived from the Sanskit word for friendship – related to Yuji, who is the primary face of the vessel and tasked to die surrounded by friends. The other name for this Buddha is "Ajita" – the “unconquerable” or “invincible”. Sukuna not only has the distinction of being the single character to have zero recorded defeats in battle but he shares traits of another Ajita in myths. A notorious sinner who turned to Buddhist study under Sakyamuni (a figure connected to Maitreya) who eventually reaches Enlightenment.
The Culling Games also brings into question that this quietly important figure may be Tengen. He is the world’s greatest barrier user and the one who may fuse with all others and destroy the boundaries between the self and the world as Maitreya would. This fact is why the Time Vessel Association chose to believe in him as their saviour – mimicking the behaviour and rationale of real life, powerful cults of Maitreya such as the White Lotus.
Some even form around quite literal cults due to the doomsday prophecy his existence is followed by. These cults particularly have prominence in China so the “bomb” and the Time Vessel Association’s unknown movements since taking Riko’s body whole in Chapter 74 may be linked to Kenjaku’s overseas trip. Gojo was never alone in making waves. In Jujutsu Kaisen there is always something lurking in the background, waiting to swallow up everything.
Everything might all lead back to this metaphor by the end.Multiple characters in Jujutsu Kaisen use several combinations of tales as inspiration for their character, such as Megumi blending the Ten Sacred Treasures and Takiyasha-hime with her gashaduro possibly growing in his domain (credit to Absolute-Cunt299). There’s also a myriad of characters with strong wills to create a new world order such as Geto, Jogo, Kenjaku and Yuki.
We’re suggesting all of these influences are now placed as possibilities by Gege within this prophecy as our various characters travel the path towards Supreme Enlightenment or “True Jujutsu”. The students, if not all players of the Culling Game, are now in competition for Gojo’s title and all of them must abandon parts of themselves to get there. To reach the other side and become like him – an enlightened being, a heavenly one.
A major reason so far “all they do is fight” and “there’s no losses” is because there is no tension or drama to this story long term in the literal text OR subtext unless we cannot know which of them is the true next undefeatable.
Everyone remaining within the Culling Game has been given signs that they may be the one to go beyond the old world and it’s previous upper limit of Special Grade as Gojo once claimed by their continued survival. Until Gege wants to reveal who won’t be able to make it, he can’t eliminate possibilities and leave >15f Sukuna as the obvious winner anymore. Essentially, the bar is set too high that like from Kyoto to Evening Festival, the bigger failures must be saved for the climax of the arc of any natural twists to occur.
Every student needs a storyline to attempt to reach True Jujutsu and go beyond Gojo and Sukuna – even if they fail.Shibuya introduced weaknesses, displacements and downfalls as well as near undefeatable enemies such as Kenjaku (capable of possibly taking on Jogo and max power Mahito at the same time) and Ureume who utterly eclipsed the previous top Grade 1s.
The climax of that arc shattered the status quo and made it impossible to keep the cast at their previous power levels – any defeats they now suffer should both eliminate the loser completely from the running of “the strongest” and logistically become unrecoverable to the group as a whole.
In short, they’re not just fighting to unseal Gojo: they’re each fighting to become a sorcerer that can match him and his impact where their loss means the end of the world. The Higher Ups are against them and their opponents are the greatest sorcerers in history. The only way to have any chance in the struggle against these powers or bring back Gojo’s will is to become an invincible force that can destroy the Culling Games. The strongest who can bear all these burdens alone.
… and that’s why I’m sure Nobara is coming back.Some people are going to argue against that but before I go into it, let me ask: why at this point do you think Nobara’s removal from the cast MUST be different from Gojo’s thematically?
Why is it different to us from Yuta and Hakari who disappeared for the entire first part of the story? From Maki who nearly died in the Zenin estate? From Imumaki or Todo? From smol Panda? From Yuji, unseen for a longer period than between the colony entries and her “death” in Shibuya, or Megumi who last was seen in unknown condition and has given no known updates for two days?
They’re all building to something, in each case the downturn is part of the story to be told. Maitreya must be reborn, enlightened to watch the world burn before they can lead humanity through it. Nobara’s body was left in critical condition and she hasn’t appeared in the manga for months but now nearly every student has been transported, changed, maimed or defeated in a way that has left their body or minds traumatised.
They’ve all been transformed, undertaking great suffering as the enter the stream as “swimmers” in the flow towards the endgame. No matter the loss, time still moves on and the moment must be seized. The students are now tasked with moving past the changes and losses that they experienced from aftermath of Shibuya. Using their various unique strengths identified by Gojo in pursuit of the same final goal signifying the various paths to enlightenment.
That’s what makes them all candidates for the next Gojo. Their potential and the will he believed in them to carry on. A will that could surpass even death in his own teenage years.
Though death is final, it is still another phase through time. One that we know can be avoided by a strong will and wise choices.Previously I began with the statement that Nobara did not die. The best retort to this argument was made by SubaruSufferu who presented evidence that Gege believes Nobara to have died in some way, shape or form. Huge thanks for pointing this out.
I explained it away by saying the term “freshly dead” was a false flag. It seemed like the sort of fake-out death that you grow used to in shonen, especially as he refuses to state her current condition as dead in writing at any point. A fake death with a fake mystery. This seems entirely wrong now after a thorough re-read.
This would contrast Nobara’s survival with Yuji, who is saved from death multiple times due to being Kenjaku’s son/greatest creation as well as one of Gojo’s most favoured students. The case for this made in the first chapters saying he had always been know as a child who can break world records without trying and a vessel with potential only seen once every thousands of years. Possibly due to abandoning a sorcerer lineage and obtaining a Heavenly Restriction.
Megumi is also saved in Shibuya twice due to the last love/willpower of his father overcoming his reincarnated body upon hearing his son has abandoned his birthright to lead the Zenin Clan, then through Sukuna’s adoration and future plans for his talent. He is like Gojo and Yuta – blessed throughout his life and the bearer of a rare inherited CT. Both chosen/favoured across generations.
In the background, Gege has laid out that Nobara was a favoured student of the Higher-Ups who covet and/or respect her traditional “stable” CT as mentioned in Chapters 153. Like Maitreya’s prophecy, she abandons her birthright as the successor of her grandmother – a powerful sorcerer detailed in supplementary materials yet unseen in the main series thus far. From Nobara’s bio in the fanbook:
BIRTHPLACE: Somewhere in Tohoku
As Maitreya can’t just be human but also a chosen one to bear the pain of the masses.A messiah who is reborn as an enlightened Buddha at the violent end of a cycle. Conte’s translation states that “as Maitreya grows up, the Dharma will increasingly take possession of him, and he will reflect that all that lives are bound to suffer.”
To be the future Buddha you must be blessed, you must be cursed, you must undergo the worst of all suffering with a vision that can survive and inspire all people across the world with it’s intensity.
That is the job every character is fighting to take on. It still feels natural to assume that Gege would only detail her grandmother because she would become in some way relevant to why Gojo chose Nobara to take on his will as well. An important question still not fully answered beyond her use of Black Flash.
At least one of the barriers may already have a player who, like Dhruv, Uro and Ryu, is strong enough to survive a dead lock/scare away potential attackers but lacking points due to a reluctance to kill weak human opponents. What we’re supposing is that both possibilities might be found in a single player.
The reawakened Nobara Kugasaki.So we’re keeping much of the original post but acknowledging it was likely was completely wrong on the titular premise. Nobara died a very real death and there is a real mystery to the fact that death took place and how it can be overturned.
It needed proper reasoning such as the prophecy of Maitreya. So we’re still saying Nobara is returning in some way, shape or form to complete her arc.
The question isn’t if she will but what will that form be and why?The first option is that Nobara returns as Gojo once did, using RCT and discovering the Core of Cursed Energy to revive herself. This would both function as a way to bring her back and a power up, something that seems necessary to keep her within the running of “the next Satoru Gojo” along with students like Yuta, Maki and Hakari.
An RCT unlock was the most obvious set up at the time of her removal from the cast and that’s also why we’re already am going to say that it’s probably the least likely going forward when there’s already so many unseen methods for characters to return from (near-)death.
It feels unlikely that Gege would create so much build up to reuse this method, especially considering that Yuji already is healed from his deathbed using RCT by Yuta in Chapter 143. We’re not saying she won’t ever unlock RCT as it seems connected to Black Flash and the Soul through the Core of Cursed Energy – it’s likely highly Nobara would gain this ability.
We’re only suggesting her revival won’t resemble what we’ve already seen and given proper impact. Otherwise, why not just have Shoko or Yuta do it in Shibuya? The events with Yuta are important here because it does prove that Gege considers there to be a “freshly dead” state in which someone is dead but able to return and a binding – basically the universe itself – acknowledges this as true that those with knowledge of the Core of Cursed Energy are possibly aware of.
Nobara must be assumed to be in this “freshly dead” condition to be able to cross the boundary and return. Something that she would share with Gojo, Maki and Naoya. All these character come back with a pivotal change to bodies and characters, which leads to option two.
Nobara’s return may be linked to the resurrection of a sorcerer as a cursed spirit.Chapter 192 reminded us of the two ways that sorcerers may return from the dead and Cursed Spirits are born, previously introduced in Chapter 33. One is being killed by a means that does not involve Cursed Energy, but we known Mahito did use a CT to attempt to kill her so we turn to the second – suicide.
If we break these up as two sets of two options then Gege has already demonstrated at least three of four possible arrangements.
Then it would make sense of why Nobara’s personality is often presented differently to the other first years. She’s calculated but full of desire, greedy and self-obsessed. All in all, she’s closer to being a gender swapped Naoya than like Yugi or Megumi. What if her final power was always supposed to involve her incredible drive for self fulfilment?
The old argument suggested that Nobara saved her life via hitting herself with her hammer before Mahito’s Idle Transfiguration could spread to her brain. This action is an unproven theory but I want to keep it and instead change to the suggestion:
There’s themes that make sense in considering why Gege would write this all this.Nobara’s Cursed Technique is based on tales of the Itako spirit mediums of Northern Japan and Wara ningyō straw dolls. The former is it’s what connects her so strongly to the Aomori colony and has been represented already in the series by another character, Granny Ogami.
Ogami clearly showed a knowledge and mastery of the soul as well as the ability to transfer body and soul information into vessels including herself – an underrated aspect for potential resurrection of the self. This a major reason she would acquire new training and blind herself. From Marianna Zanetta – The Itako of Tōhoku: Between Tradition and Change:
From the standpoint of the traditional itako and ogamisama practice, as analysed and described by all the researchers, the reason for entering apprenticeship is very practical: she is blind. Be it blindness since birth or the consequence of disease or accident […]Nobara has already been trained to use the techniques passed down from the region previously, what is there to say that, like Yuji, she hasn’t been forced to train to handle the coming threats after her reawakening through self-blinding? She would be reborn and, like Gojo, be trained on the usage of a powerful technique noted for its prevalence in Heian/Edo period.
For those who expect Nobara to return with a new curse tool, the chapter the blind medium in Carmen Blacker’s – The Catalpa Bow lays out that this is the final proces of becoming a fully fledged sorcerer in her region:
An important final step in the initiation ritual in all districts is the dōgu-watashi or transmission of instruments of power. These are the tools without which the girl cannot accomplish the tasks of summoning kami and ghosts and inducing them to take possession of her. All over the Tōhoku district the instruments used for these purposes are of three principal kinds: a bow or one-stringed lute used for summoning ghosts, a pair of puppets known as oshirasama for summoning kami, and a rosary used indiscriminately for invoking both kinds of spirit.Her absence may be fully planned, linking back into our theme of time.
Think about it? What reasoning did Gege have to clearly map the time of every event in Shibuya? Why has that continued now into labelling the day of each fight?
How has this properly been connected to anyone’s story arc?
What if the answer was always to make sense of Nobara’s disappearance?She dies in Shibuya soon before “The Hour of The Ox” during the double hour of 1AM to 3AM – this is an hour where the boundary between the regular world and the world of the dead is at it’s weakest. The exact premise of the start of the Culling Games near the exact time Kenjaku undoes the seal and begins the migration to the other side.
Importantly, it also tracks as the most likely period Nobara’s dead body must be revived. If she was moved prior to 1AM and Yuta’s arrival, it makes sense that Megumi could not yet tell Yuji her condition or that he wouldn’t attempt to use RCT on her body.
Now we ask if Gege would bother doing something so specific? Well it actually ties into a famous ritual involving both this time period and the straw dolls – the Ushi no koku mairi, or “The Shrine Visit at the Hour of the Ox”.
In this a woman takes a piece of the target’s body or belongings and nails it with a straw doll to a tree near a shrine – the basis for Nobara’s soul manipulating Resonance attack.
While doing so she wears thick white face paint, candles in her hair and a white kimono. This heavily associated with Hashihime, a woman who curses her ex-lover after he leaves her for another woman by turning herself into an ogre.
In the myth of Hashishime, a woman prays to the Gods for revenge against an ex-lover for seven days during the Hour of the Ox until the Gods grant her power and opportunity. They tell her to immerse herself into the water for twenty one days and she will become a demon.
This is mirrored in the Ushi no koku mairi as the woman is unseen by all, striking the same spot during the Hour of the Ox for seven days. On the seventh, she finds that she has summoned a great power – said to take the form of a shikigami or a transformation of the woman herself into an ogre as Hashihime once did.
Now we can connect the whole story!For background, we’re assuming that Nobara’s technique is related to Granny Ogami’s but hinges on a different route of prowess with the mechanics of the soul and the core of cursed energy – one unlocked through blindness.
We’re then also suggesting that she was always aware of the soul to some degree along with black flash and the mechanisms that allow a sorcerer to revive themselves due to her grandmother’s influence and her training. Something that would interest Gojo in teaching her.
We note that Nobara has a much more complex understanding of life and death than Yuji and arguably Megumi – completely abandoning the idea that it is fair or unfair in favour of viewing it as a matter of luck or survival. She is the closest to Gojo’s vision of aloof self-sacrifice, a major strength as a candidate to replace him. It is also a demonstration of the strong sense of self required from a sorcerer of that level.
Nobara is one of the only students who refuses to use her CT without killing intent as showcased in Chapter 41 – possibly foreshadowing to a low point score in the colonies. She only ever goes all out from the start with killing intent against curses and the Death Paintings – all of whom she significantly damages.
Like Gojo, she’s prone to both hold back her ability for the sake of others and against human opponents as Gege shows all the way back in Chapter 5. Her refusal to judge Yuji or Maki for being othered by Jujutsu society is also a strong point of similarity – she’s vain but morally righteous with a strong self of self that can allow others to “take a seat in her life”.
In Chapter 63, she becomes Yuji’s hope as she bears his sins allow with him and takes on Megumi’s as well – she’s both of their “accomplices”. Like the prophetised Buddha, her character is always one that is expected to be beautiful but also take on the pains of others. Something that is apparent in her fight against the Death Paintings with Yuji in Chapters 60-62, but also her conversation with Momo which introduces the idea of women being scarred – a foreshadowing to her missing and/or transformed facial features much like Hashihime.
So we believe Gege’s shown she’s capable of killing herself. Not to die but to be reborn – beginning the countdown of seven days starting from the Hour of the Ox on November 1st. This not only matches the myth of Hashihime but also the seven days of suffering prophetised before the coming of the future Buddha.
We’re supposing that Nobara does die but revives during this hour, either by herself or rescued by her grandmother. In complete secrecy she is struck again and revived for six more consecutive days until she is reawakened to a greater power on November 7th – represented by a shikigami formed from the remnants of her soul left from attacking herself as she crosses to the other side and/or a new cursed spirit like form.
Like Tengen or Yuta she may return part Cursed Spirit or taking one as a shikigami – a Hashimine inspired ogre.
This is our suggestion for her major power up perhaps along with RCT. In this, Nobara is not only alive but stronger than she has ever been before. Off screen, her grandmother perhaps instructs her to join her and train as a participant in the Culling Games in the Aomori barrier to save Japan – these are the water’s she must survive for 21 days until her maximum potential, the power to equal Satoru Gojo, may be unlocked.
The most striking thing we get from assuming a mixture of the Maitreya prophecy and tale of Hashihime is it a greater meaning to Nobara’s relationship with Yuji and Yuko in Chapter 64 (read the end of the earlier theory for a breakdown of this part).
I’m now near certain Hana Kurusu is the reawakened soul that had used Yuko as a vessel as Nobara’s storyline would therefore parallel Hashihime’s Tale while fitting her possible duty as a future Buddha.
Gege wrote that Miwa and Mechamaru were his only planned main character romances yet seemed to add a hint of confusion or jealousy within Nobara’s relationship with Yuko. This makes sense if the fight against Angel is supposed to be a stand in for the battle of Hashihime for her ex-lover against his new woman.
This fits so well that I actually want to take the theory a step further and suggest that soon after the fight with Naoya, a player is sure to add the communication and/or travel between barrier rule. Previously we suggested that Nobara will continue her old goal of returning to Tokyo at any cost.
Instead what if Angel, Yuji and Nobara may meet within the Kyoto barrier for the last colony battle before the bomb is unleashed. He is the chosen “partner” who has been stolen from her and that she has taken great pain to return to and take revenge.
Both the Hashimine and Ushi no koku mairi tales involve important locations in Kyoto – the Uji-bashi Bridge which Hashimine haunts and the Kifune Shrine which her followers nail their straw dolls on the trees nearby to pray to gain her strength.
(Now watch him bring back the old Six Eyes user there or something ha.)
Conclusion – sorry that it took so long!Gege said in the fanbook that Nobara was the hardest character to decide the actions of and I really can see why. I hope this piece inspires a lot of people to not just take the idea of Nobara’s return more seriously but encourages people to re-read Jujutsu Kaisen a bit more intensely. It’s a beautiful story that you can squeeze more and meaning from every time you go through it with a new idea.
Whether or not this theory is correct or not, re-writing it was mostly a blast and helped me see the Culling Games in a better light. It’s possibly been amazingly foreshadowed in nearly every earliest opportunity.
You might have skimmed this and thought I was reaching, thinking Gege has such an academic grasp of Buddhism and Japanese mythology. I think it’s more of a reach to assume an Art Grad paid millions of yen, locked in a room drawing until his body falls apart isn’t putting any effort or thought into it rather than perfectly lining up setups and pay-offs based on hundreds of years of scripture and theory in complete happenstance.
I mean there’s still unexplained random decisions. Like, I’m not saying you can flick through the Kitawaga essay and randomly find a valid clue to some small detail like Jogo being the bearer of the disaster spirits will over the obvious choice of Mahito--
Mountaintops-often referred to as on-take-of various sacred mountains, Fuji, Kiso, Asama, Hi'ei, and Koya, for example, also were considered the potential Pure Land of Maitreya (Miroku-jodo). The most conspicuous example of the merging of the Maitreya cult and mountain worship was the development of the devotional confraternity centering on Mount Fuji (Fuji-ko), which attracted enough adherents to become an independent religious sect.Huh.
Thanks for reading.
Hi all, I am not sure if this post is useful to everyone, but given there is not a lot of info on using this sub's method in Forex, I wanted to share my setup and learnings.submitted by Maximum-Range to RealDayTrading [link] [comments]
Forex is a completely different beast than stocks. If you are trading the Euro Dollar (EURUSD), not only do you need to consider if the Euro is strong or weak, you also need to consider if the Dollar is strong or weak. It is entirely possible that you go long the Euro into strength, but because the Dollar is also strong, EURUSD may go nowhere or even down. I like to flip u/HSeldon2020's adage "put the market first" into "put 2x markets first", referring to the need to analyse each currency before you can get a good view of RS/RW. I've been studying and trading relative strength using this subs RS/RW method since November 2021 and want to share my insights.
I will break this post up into sections:
Creating currency strength charts in TradingViewFirst of all, we need to create a currency strength chart in TradingView. Forex, as a decentralised market, doesn't have a single tracker like the S&P500 that can be used to gauge market strength or weakness. We need to do this for every single currency pair we trade.
Thankfully, TradingView makes this really easy with spread charts.
Have you ever seen the math symbols next to the search bar and wondered what they do? Maybe, if you're like me you might have clicked on them a few times, not knowing what they do, and then given up and moved on to something else. However, these symbols unlock an extremely powerful feature called spread charting. In essence, spread charting is taking one asset and re-charting it with some alteration. For example, you could create your own version of the FAANG index, but remove Netflix based on their recent earnings bomb. To do this, you would simply search for (FB+AAPL+AMZN+GOOG)/4. This will add all four symbols together and then find the mean by dividing by the number of symbols:
Daily Chart for (FB+AAPL+AMZN+GOOG)/4
At the most basic level, we want to take this concept and apply it to different currencies. The goal is to create a chart that shows the strength of a single currency like the USD, EURO, CAD, etc.
In FX, we already have the DXY which tracks the strength of the US Dollar. There are also other indices like EUROWCU which track the strength of the Euro. We can use these directly, or alternatively, create our own using the spread charting feature.
Now, this next part gets into some math and FX basics, so either follow along or skip ahead if you're already trading FX.
Currencies are quoted in pairs of: BASE|QUOTE. For example, EURUSD. EUR is the base, USD is the quote. In layman's terms, EURUSD means we: Buy EUR using USD. USDJPY means we buy USD using JPY.
If we just use EURUSD, it can move in trading because:
To the math, to understand the strength of a currency we add all the pairs where the currency is the base, subtract where it is the quote, and divide by the number of other currencies indexed against (7).
For example in TradingView search we can enter:
A Daily Chart of the USD index using the formula above
As you can see, USD has been surging since February. This tells us half of the story.
If we chart another currency, like JPY, you will see it has been incredibly weak at the same time:
Daily chart of JPY during the same time
And then, just like magic, we know that USD = strong, JPY = weak, therefore USDJPY is probably very strong right now. It only takes a quick news search to see that USDJPY has been incredibly strong since Feb and is the current topic of Government intervention in Japan.
How to interpret these chartsGreat! We now have the basics. We know that TradingView will let us chart a custom index (or we can use some existing ones like DXY).
It can be useful at this point to pull up a few charts into a split-screen and use this as a sort of screener to see what is strong/weak today. I like to also include the Ichimoku Cloud for easier trend identification:
Quad screen comparing EUR, USD, GBP, and CAD
It can be a lot to take in, so I usually prefer screening just two currencies, or using one of the RS/RW screeners I'll talk about soon.
To make things clearer, let's zoom in on EUR and GBP today:
EUR and GBP strength on 1H chart
EUR and GBP strength on 5m chart
We can now clearly see that EUR has been heading up since 2am, while GBP has been heading down since 2am. What does this mean? Well, we already know this means that the EURGBP is probably trending higher. Let's take a look:
EURGBP 5m chart
Yes! We've got a beautiful uptrend intraday on EURGBP.
What we can do now is monitor the charts and look for instances where the GBP strength chart breaks down bearish again or EUR continues moving up. Both will be a strong signal that we can start to see some movement in the pair EURGBP.
It also goes without saying that we can use the traditional teachings from the wiki in the same way, with a slight modification:
The good news is we can automate a lot of this hard work with the next section.
Running RS/RW scans on currenciesJust like many of the RS/RW indicators that have cropped up for trading vs SPY, you can use this same technique for trading currencies. The difference is now that we've done some charting, we actually have a reliable index to use.
I use the incredible screener created by squattingsquid (https://www.reddit.com/RealDayTrading/comments/sgii13/rrs_custom_stock_screener_for_tradingview_top_100/) to load up currency pairs vs my new base charts.
It's as simple as loading up the script, doing the usual setup for the tables, but instead of SPY as the comparison symbol, we use the spread chart symbol from earlier:
An example setup for USD pairs
I can now see, in one quick glance, that if I wanted to trade a USD pair right now, USDCHF is probably the strongest on the long side.
If I pull up USDCHF intraday, it has made a fresh move up and is consolidating. Maybe it will break upwards? Who knows. But if the USD strength chart starts showing some bullish moves (in the same way we would wait for SPY to make a move first in stocks), then USDCHF could be a good long position:
Using the screener does remove some of the complexity of analysing two base markets all the time. You can simply look for the strongest/weakest pair for USD, watch the USD strength chart, and then take a trade when USD makes a move in either direction. You can employ your usual moving averages etc. on the 5m chart to capture an entry edge. From this point on, it's very similar to the wiki.
You can even load up a relative strength indicator and use the strength chart as the comparison input. It really is just as flexible as normal RS/RW trading with stocks:
USDCHF with the Real Relative Strength indicator using my USD strength symbol as a comparison
I often overlay the charts with the screeners in the top so I always have a good video of what is RS/RW at any given time
Thoughts/considerationsIf you've read this far, thank you. Setting up a Forex version of this subs methods has been a big project of mine for the past few months. I find Forex to be very interesting to trade and do enjoy reading about monetary policy and economic outputs. It's not for everyone!
In no way do I feel like I have "cracked the case" on how to trade FX using RS/RW, but I hope this does help anyone who shares my interest give it a shot or build on the idea. If nothing else, I have built a deep understanding of how Forex markets operate by simply observing the strength and weaknesses of different currencies and extrapolating this into trading pairs.
The final note I want to make is to really re-emphasize how different FX is to stocks. If the S&P500 gaps up, you could randomly pick any constituent stock and there is a likelihood that it is up too. If the USD strength chart gaps up, any USD pair could actually be down. It doesn't matter what the USD is doing if another currency is melting down. FX really is a different beast. However, if you take a "2x markets first" approach you will quickly see how the methods of u/HSeldon2020 can apply in Forex, and presumably, in commodities and Crypto too.
I haven't even touched on some of the other parallels such as the importance of a strong daily chart, but trust me, everything in the wiki is applicable in Forex as long as you get your comparison symbol right. I think this method comes close to replicating for Forex what SPY is to stocks.
If there are any other Forex lurkers in this sub, I would love to collaborate and really build on this to create a sort of Forex version of the RS/RW rules. I honestly don't know if there is any interest or demand for this, so I am keen to hear what everyone thinks.
