The official website released spoiler stills and synopsis for "Jujutsu Kaisen" Episode 9 teasing the arrival of new characters like Nanami and Junpei Yoshino.

According to the synopsis, Yoshino witnesses a brutal crime as a man named Mahito kills three moviegoers inside the Kinema Cinema theater. Yoshino chases Mahito and calls him out. The killer is surprised that Yoshino can see him. Mahito is likely a Cursed Spirit.

Meanwhile, Itadori and Nanami arrive at the crime scene due to the gruesome nature of the killings and supernatural beings are likely behind the murders.

The spoilers for "Jujutsu Kaisen" Episode 9 suggest that Nanami and Itadori will encounter two spirits inside the theater. Nanami is a first-class sorcerer and it will be interesting to see him work with Itadori.

In the previous "Jujutsu Kaisen" episode, the Kyoto principal visits Tokyo high school to talk about the upcoming inter-school event. Meanwhile, Megumi and Nobara are getting things for Maki Zenin. However, they are confronted by Mai Zenin and Aoi Todo from the Kyoto school.

Mai reveals that they are checking on them since their teammate, Itadori died in a battle. Todo reveals that he wants to battle Yuta Okkotsu’s replacements and check if they are worthy enough for the event.

Todo challenges Megumi while Mai goes after Nobara. Megumi is aware of how powerful Todo is. He remembers Todo singlehandedly exorcising all the Cursed Spirits in Shinjuku. Megumi fuses Nue with Toad using his Bottomless Well technique.

However, Todo easily beats his winged toads and continues to attack Megumi. Elsewhere, Satoru Gojo meets the Kyoto principal.

Back to the fight, Panda and Toge’s timely intervention saves Megumi’s life. In the meantime, Maki appears and protects Nobara from Mai who is set to shoot Nobara.
