SukUme is the non-binary ship between Ryoumen Sukuna and Uraume from the Jujutsu Kaisen fandom. Though not much is known about their relationship, Sukuna and Uraume are significantly close. The two have stayed with each other for a thousand years all the way back in the Heian Era where Sukuna was once a human. It is assumed that Uraume knows Sukuna better than anyone since they have spent a long time together. While there is not much known about Uraume as well, they seem to be very loyal and dedicated to Sukuna. As for Sukuna, his relationship with Uraume hasn't been fully disclosed, but he seems to respect them Yet. Sukuna is also shown to be more patient and friendly towards Uraume unlike all the other people he's met so far. The two reunited when Jogo was defeated. Uraume had come to find Sukuna and escort him, and he seemed very surprised upon seeing them, as he didn't recognize them initially. Once Sukuna realized their identity, Uraume smiled and told him that it was nice seeing him again. And when the time came that the two had to part ways, Sukuna tells Uraume that he'll see them later.

Uraume says "I shall be waiting for you." after he's gone. The creator of Jujutsu Kaisen, Akutami Gege said that Sukuna in his human years never had wife or children, he only had Uraume as a servant. Gege also added that Uraume is Sukuna's close aide whom he trusts. As Uraume fights Choso and Yuji Itadori, Sukuna's vessel, Yuji breaks Choso out of the ice that Uraume had contained him in. In the second opening of Jujutsu Kaisen, before Sukuna shows up on screen, Uraume's icefall is seen underwater. When Jogo, Mimiko and Nanako awaken Sukuna using his fingers, Sukuna makes them bow down to him. Nanako and Mimiko both bow down right onto the floor, while Jogo only bows with one knee. The action makes Sukuna almost slice his head off because Jogo is nowhere near the same level as him. But when Uraume bows down on one knee, and even stands next to him despite being a servant, Sukuna doesn't say anything as he allows them to. Uraume unwaveringly stayed with Sukuna for a thousand years. Due to Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 not being animated yet, SukUme is more popular within those who've read the Manga. The reason why fans love the ship so much is because of Uraume and Sukuna's closeness. From Uraume being eternally loyal and devoted to Sukuna, to Sukuna willingly letting Uraume stay by his side for a thousand years. Fans also like to believe that Sukuna has a "soft spot" for Uraume, since most fans feel that it is impossible for Sukuna to keep someone by his side for so long.
39;s where Uraume and Sukuna get to meet each other when Yuji is his vessel.
The fans find their relationship ending despite knowing so little. Many who make alternate universes for Sukuna and Uraume in fan fiction or artworks often involve the two living together. The song that a lot of fans think suit them is "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri. A theory in the SukUme fandom is that there is some kind of connection between Sugawara no Michizane and Sukuna and Uraume. Sukuna has a similar ox connection with Suguwara, as well as his Domain Expansion looks a lot like Sugawara's Daizafu shrine. Sugawara also deeply loved plum blossoms, to the point that he wrote many poems about them. The kanji in Uraume's name, "Ume" «梅» means "plum" "plum tree" or "plum blossom." SukUme fans think this could be a hint of romantic feelings from Sukuna since him and Sugawara have many similarities. SukUme in fanfiction explores reincarnation or Modern AU's where Uraume and Sukuna get to meet each other when Yuji is his vessel. SukUme is also shipped by few who ship EreMika from the Attack On Titan fandom due to both of the couples having "cinematic parallels".
Sukuna and Eren both being criminals and having someone dedicated to them by their side for a long time. SukUme is also jokingly compared to Zutara from the Avatar: The Last Airbender fandom. This is due to Uraume and Sukuna having the iconic "Fire and Ice" abilities like Zuko and Katara. SukUme is Uraume's most popular ship (and most written on AO3) and Sukuna's fourth most popular ship (and most written on AO3). A popular SukUme trope is to draw Sukuna and Uraume as Yuji's parents or caretakers, such as depicted here in the sketch made by @Maharu1120 on Twitter. Gege Akutami said that Uraume had been sticking to Sukuna since a thousand years ago. They were a human who were allowed to be with Sukuna because their cooking was delicious. As said by Akutami, Sukuna ate humans and the only person who could excellently cook them was Uraume. It was said in the Jujutsu Kaisen Fanbook that Sukuna appreciated Uraume's cooking. Sukuna and Uraume contrast each other. Uraume can create ice while Sukuna can create fire. In the original Japanese translation of chapter 116, when Sukuna and Uraume are about to part ways Sukuna says to Uraume: "See you later, Uraume" "Mata (na), Uraume." Mata (na) would be casual, the way you'd say bye-bye to your friend at the end of an activity when you go your separate ways.
It would be soft, cute, and friendly. It doesn't explicitly means "see you later", it just has that kind of a feeling because you expect to see your friend again at some point. Mata (na) is more manly sounding than Mata ne which would be neutral. It implies a wish to meet again, and it's just a nice thing to say, like "I'll be seeing you" which led many fans to notice how Sukuna talks to Uraume in the softest way compared to how he talks to everyone else. Gege Akutami said that Sukuna had no wife or children in his past, and that he only had Uraume. As said by Gege in the Jujutsu Kaisen official fanbook, Sukuna's pleasure is eating, which a lot of fans said that it makes Uraume the perfect partner for Sukuna. Since they can cook delicious meals. In the Jujutsu Kaisen fanbook it was said that Uraume was the only one who was allowed to be with Sukuna. Gege Akutami referred to Uraume as Sukuna's close aide in a character poll for Jujutsu Kaisen. SukUme parallels itself with YutaRika, (which is a canonical ship in Jujutsu Kaisen) both ships include their own respective Queen and King of curses with powerful sorcerers. Sukuna and Uraume wear very similar kimono. Both have the same white and blue colors in anime and the same black and white colors in manga, they also wear the same colored haori. Since Sukuna's kimono is loose akin to a ladies kimono, many fans thought that Uraume could've given him those clothes since they have an identical one themselves. Jujutsu Kaisen, p.81.

39;t even begin to imagine.
It's almost Halloween, and what better way to spend October than watching psychological thrillers? If you're looking for an anime filled with suspense, amazing storytelling, and dynamic characters, Naoki Urasawa's 2004 anime series Monster gives us all of these things and more. It focuses on the life of Dr. Tenma, a brilliant Japanese brain surgeon working at Eisler Memorial Hospital in West Germany, 1986. He's the hospital's rising star and engaged to the daughter of the hospital's director when he's suddenly faced with a moral dilemma that shakes his core, forcing him to make life -changing decisions. An innocent man dies because Dr. Tenma followed orders to treat a patient of higher social and political status. He is devastated and horrified as the widow confronts him, realizing what following these orders had entailed. This is a huge turning point in his life and the beginning of our story. This moment leads him to make a decision that alters his life in ways he couldn't even begin to imagine. The dilemma Dr. Tenma had to face is one that is brought up throughout the entire series: is every life equal? Obviously, the answer is "yes," and Dr. Tenma tries to convey this time and time again.
The plot of Monster is imaginative, with a well executed story.
Starting because of the innocent man dying because he wasn't deemed as a priority by the hospital, Tenma performs surgery on a boy with a gun shot wound despite receiving orders to treat the major first. When Dr. Tenma decides to help this boy, he's completely unaware that he's reviving a "monster" and the antagonist of this story. Almost immediately, Dr. Tenma is faced with tragedies and mystery at the hands of this ten-year-old boy. Most of Monster takes place 10-12 years after this point, following a string of murders occurring around Germany. It doesn't take long before Dr. Tenma is standing face to face with the murderer, who then reveals that he was the young boy Tenma brought back to life ten years prior: Johan Liebert. He shoots Dr. Tenma's patient right before his eyes and walks away like a true psychopath: cool, calm, and menacingly slow. Thus begins Dr. Tenma's journey to take Johan down, pulling him out of the shadows and into broad daylight to prevent any more murders from happening. This proves to be no easy task, though, and Dr. Tenma soon discovers there is far more than meets the eye in his journey of rectitude. The plot of Monster is imaginative, with a well executed story. The mysteries, plot, and characters are all woven together so seamlessly, and everything made perfect sense as the story progressed, while also managing to surprise at every turn. The plot is beyond compelling and riddled with depth and intrigue.
Urasawa did a great job making the characters three-dimensional and real. These characters weren't good or bad, or cookie-cutter images of other characters. They were each their own person and brought something unique to the story. They made us reflect, they made us cry, and they made us feel. Every episode brings something new and enthralling. The characters are carefully developed along the way-heroes, villains, and everyone in between. There are a lot of different types of villains in Monster (with the big bad boss being Johan Liebert), which is a big part of what makes this series so great. There's not just one bad guy and a bunch of lackeys, but multiple villains of all calibers, with various levels of evil versus humanity, none of which are the same. Even Johan's followers have their own individuality as villains. Each one brings something different to the table, and we tend to hate each of these villains (or love to hate them) for different reasons.
First and foremost, there's Johan. If you like incredibly eerie, disturbing villains-the calm and collected ones that are secretly serial killers-you've come to the right place. Johan's the main antagonist of this story and Dr. Tenma's worst nightmare come to life. He constantly taunts the doctor and murders anyone in his way-sometimes for no reason at all other than he simply can. As the show progresses, secrets are revealed and more tragedies occur. We realize just how bad Johan really is and how much he seems to hustle as a villain (seriously, where does he find the time)? He is easily one of the creepiest villains in all of anime. Everything he does is meticulous, and he can't interact with anyone without ruining their lives or convincing them they're useless and unworthy of love, or even life itself. He's calculated, intelligent, and has no remorse; he knows exactly what he wants to do and will accomplish it at all costs. He isn't predictable either, which gives the story all the twists and turns it needs to be made even more interesting. While Johan is the calm, creepy evil mastermind, there are others walking adjacent paths, such as the recurring villain Roberto. This man is so easy to hate, which makes him a good villain in its own way. In contrast to Johan's insidiousness, Roberto's more of a brute force/macho man villain that you know can beat the life out of you without breaking a sweat. While Johan uses mind games to win his wars, Roberto uses his inhuman strength and size to barrel through obstacles and demolish his enemies.
