We were all surprised by Panda’s appearance at Jujutsu Kaisen, but there was another surprise. While a panda was already possible, a person who speaks onigiriingredients is a surprise.
We were all stunned!
Inumaki Toge was a second-year student at Tokyo Jujutsu High. His cursed speech was the cause of the onigiri language!
Although he may seem strange, this senpai is actually very kind and considerate. His cursed technique makes it as cool as it can get.
It’s also really cute to see the onigirilanguage! We sometimes wish we could understand what Inumaki is actually saying.
This article will help you, so don’t be alarmed! We now know more about the Onigirilanguage glossary thanks to Twitter user itsinumaki.
But, but! But, but!
Let’s start by understanding why this language exists.
What is Cursed Speech?
Inumaki speaks onigiriingredients as he is a Cursed Speech user.
Cursed Speech sounds exactly like it does. To command someone to do what they want, the shaman infuses words with cursed energy.
Inumaki wears Serpent Eyes, Fangs seals on both his tongue and mouth. Cursed Speech requires these seals. It is also an Inherited Cursed Technique belonging to the Inumaki clan.
Okkotsu Yuta, however, could duplicate this technique using a megaphone that has similar seals.
Cursed speech is an extremely powerful Cursed Technique.
Its versatility and ease of use are great advantages for shamans. Inumaki can use it on a smartphone, just like he did against Miwa at the school event.
Cursed Speech is powerful, but it also has its downsides.
Although a shaman may be able to command their opponent, they cannot do anything beyond the norm. The more powerful the command to the opponent, then the more damaging the technique is for the shaman.
These “effects” include a sore throat, inability to talk, and others. Inumaki must always have a bottle of cough syrup with him.
Cursed Speech could even backfire if it is the worst.
Inumaki has a limit to which he can’t use his Cursed Speech beyond. He can’t use his Cursed Speech beyond that limit. It takes a toll on his body. He also often coughs up blood.
He must be careful about the frequency and intensity of his use.
Inumaki also suffers from Cursed Speech, which makes it impossible for him to use normal language in everyday conversations.
This is why Inumaki restricts his speech to the onigiriingredients. Let’s now see what these safe terms mean!
Meanings of Inumaki’s onigiriingredients
Shake (Gui Shiyake) and Sushi (Gui Qi Shiyakesushi), are both salmon in English. These symbols signify Inumaki’s acceptance or affirmation of something.
Okaka [Katsuoboshi flakes] (okaka), are bonito/fish flakes. Okakais an opposite to Shake and Shake Sushi. It means Inumaki is denying or disagreeing with the statement.
Konbu/kombu (Kun Bu konbu) is kelp. It is Inumaki greeting someone, as you may have guessed by the beginning of this article!
Takana (Gao Cai Takana) means pickled mustard leaf. It is used to indicate concern or worry.
Sujiko (Jin Zi suziko), and Ikura/Igura both refer to salted/prepared salmon trout roe. Inumaki’s onigirilanguage translates them to different meanings. Sujiko is used to grab attention of the other person and can be translated as “hey, look at me!”.
However, Inumaki swears at you if he says Ikura/Igura to you. xD
Mentaiko (Ming Tai Zi Mentaiko) is walleye pollack rose. It is a sign that you are sweet. You thought so! It’s another Inumaki curse term! Inumaki- senpai swears a lot for being kawaii!
Last but not least, Tuna Tuna (tsunatsuna), is Inumaki encouraging the person to look. Tuna mayo is him encouraging the person to speak! Inumaki’s favourite onigiriingredient is tuna mayo.
Now we understand what Inumaki means by onigiri. This post is by itsinumaki, a Twitter user. It explains the thought process behind this key.
Let us know what you think. Are you finding the glossary useful and fun? We’d love to hear from you in the comments.
