Today, we will look into the age of one of them. If you’re wondering how old Megumi Fushiguro is, then you’ve come to the right place!

What Year is JJK Set In?

Before we answer your question about Megumi’s age, let us first establish the year that Jujutsu Kaisen was set in.

The events in the series began in June 2018 when Yuji and Megumi unexpectedly teamed up against the Cursed Object that broke free at Sugisawa Municipal High School.

The Occult Research Club members, Iguchi and Sasaki, found one of Sukuna’s fingers and unknowingly removed its seal. This caused multiple cursed spirits to appear in the school and endanger the said students.

Fortunately, Yuji and Megumi arrived on time. With their teamwork, they managed to defeat the cursed spirits and keep Iguchi and Sasaki safe.

However, the fight was not yet completely over as a cursed spirit suddenly appeared and captured Megumi. In order to save him, Yuji swallowed Sukuna’s finger, the Cursed Object that got unsealed and attracted numerous cursed spirits.

And that’s how Yuji Itadori came to be Sukuna’s Vessel and was brought into Tokyo Jujutsu High.

How Old is Megumi?

According to the Jujutsu Kaisen Official Fanbook released in March 2021, Megumi was born on December 22, 2002. This means that he was 15 years old when the series began in June 2018. He is a few months younger than Kugisaki Nobara (August 7, 2002) and a few months older than Itadori Yuji (March 20, 2003).

How Old was Megumi When Toji Died?

Toji died during the Hidden Inventory Arc set in 2006. This means that Megumi, who was born in 2002, was only 4 years old at the time.

At What Age Did Gojo Meet Megumi?

This is a tricky question that fans have been trying to decode for so long. The exact timeline of Jujutsu Kaisen is quite unclear and contains some inconsistencies, but here’s what we have so far.

When Gojo met Megumi for the first time, Megumi was currently in the first grade of elementary school. In Japan, children begin the first grade of elementary school at age 6. Following that logic, Megumi would’ve been 6 years old around 2008 or 2009. It’s possible that Gojo, age 19, met Megumi around that time frame as well.

Does Megumi know that Gojo killed his dad?

In other words, Gojo was around 19 years old when he met Megumi (age 6) for the first time. However, keep in mind that this is only an estimate.

There are some fans who believe that Gojo met Megumi in 2007, a year after the Star Plasma incident where Toji also died. But if that were the case, then Megumi would’ve been 5 years old at the time, and in Japan, children do not enter first grade until age 6.
