Noritoshi Kamo’s Background
Noritoshi Kamo is a tall and muscular young man with long black hair that he ties in a ponytail. He has a scar on his left cheek and wears a black leather jacket with a red dragon emblem on the back. He also carries a katana with him at all times.
Noritoshi Kamo is the son of a wealthy and influential family that owns several businesses and properties in Tokyo. He is also the descendant of an infamous jujutsu sorcerer who was known as the “Crimson Binding” for his ability to manipulate blood. Noritoshi inherited this cursed technique from his ancestor, and uses it to enhance his physical abilities and create deadly weapons out of blood.
Noritoshi Kamo is a cold and ruthless person who enjoys killing and fighting. He has no loyalty or respect for anyone, not even his own family or gang members. He views everyone as either tools or obstacles for his own ambitions. He is obsessed with becoming the strongest and most feared person in Japan, and will stop at nothing to achieve his goal.
Noritoshi Kamo’s Appearance
Noritoshi is a tall young man who stands above all his peers at Kyoto Jujutsu High other than Todo. He has gray-colored eyes that are normally obscured because Noritoshi normally keeps his eyes completely shut.
He has long black hair he used to keep in a unique style where two strands in front of his face were styled with bandage-like wrappings. The rest of his hair behind his head reached to the bottom of his neck.
While still heir to the Kamo Clan, Noritoshi sported a dark blue tinted shozoku version of the Jujutsu High uniform with zori sandals with white socks. He casually wore a light colored kimono with dark pants around the Kamo clan estate. As a child, he wore a dark yukata robe.
Following the Shibuya Incident and Kenjaku’s hostile takeover of the Kamo clan, Noritoshi cut his hair into a much shorter, spikier style. For the Culling Game, Noritoshi sports a new outfit instead of a Jujutsu High uniform.
He wears a long sleeved black shirt underneath a protective breastplate that covers the left side of his chest. He also sports a waste guard that covers both sides of his hips and holsters the quiver for his arrows. Noritoshi completes this new look with black pants and shoes with white trim.
Noritoshi Kamo’s Personality
Noritoshi is normally very calm and stoic in most situations, whether it be in front of his allies or rivals. Excluding Aoi, he is a senior and a leader for his peers at the Kyoto school other than Aoi.
He also feels a kinship to those who come from sorcerer families such as Megumi. His loyalty to the sorcerer families has distorted his feelings when it comes to others.
Noritoshi has actively treated Mai as though she were beneath him because she didn’t inherit the Ten Shadows Technique. Instead, he speaks familiarly with Megumi despite his lack of real ties with the Zenin family. Additionally, Noritoshi feels that Yuji Itadori must be eliminated because he’s a threat.
The current heir to the Kamo line was born from the current head’s mistress because the rightful wife couldn’t give birth to a son who possessed Blood Manipulation. In order to protect his mother, Noritoshi accepted the responsibility of being heir to the head of the Kamo Family.
This pressure has caused him to embody all of their twisted values, often not thinking for himself, forced to do so for his mother’s sake.
Noritoshi became a jujutsu sorcerer because his mother believed in his potential to help people. Encountering Yuji helped remind him of this because Yuji is a sorcerer for the same reason. One day he hopes to reconnect with his mother after he’s become a great sorcerer.
What is Noritoshi Kamo’s role in Tokyo Revengers?
Noritoshi Kamo first appears in chapter 100 of the manga, when he meets Takemichi Hanagaki in the present day. He reveals that he is the leader of Tenjiku, a faction of the Tokyo Manji Gang that consists of former members of Moebius and other gangs that he recruited or coerced. He also reveals that he was behind the Bloody Halloween incident, where he killed over 100 people from both sides of the conflict, including Hinata Tachibana.
Noritoshi Kamo then challenges Takemichi to a fight, saying that he wants to test his strength against him. He claims that he knows that Takemichi can travel back in time, and that he wants to see if he can change the outcome of Bloody Halloween. He also says that he has a personal grudge against Takemichi, as he was the one who defeated his cousin Kazutora Hanemiya, who was also a member of Tenjiku.
Takemichi accepts the challenge, and they engage in a brutal battle. Noritoshi Kamo uses his blood manipulation technique to create various weapons, such as blades, whips, and arrows.
He also demonstrates his enhanced speed, strength, and durability. Takemichi tries to fight back with his determination and courage, but he is overwhelmed by Noritoshi’s power and skill.
However, before Noritoshi can deliver the final blow, he is interrupted by Mikey (Manjiro Sano), the leader of the Tokyo Manji Gang. Mikey arrives with his loyal followers, and confronts Noritoshi for betraying him and killing Hinata. He declares that he will not forgive him, and that he will make him pay for his crimes.
Noritoshi Kamo then faces Mikey in a one-on-one duel, while Takemichi watches from the sidelines. The two clash with their katanas, and exchange fierce blows. Noritoshi tries to use his blood technique to gain an advantage, but Mikey counters with his own incredible strength and speed. The fight reaches its climax when Mikey slashes Noritoshi’s chest with his sword, causing him to bleed profusely.
Noritoshi Kamo then admits defeat, and acknowledges Mikey as the strongest person in Japan. He also reveals that he was actually working for someone else, who ordered him to kill Hinata and start a war between the gangs. He says that this person is the true enemy of Takemichi and Mikey, and that they should be careful of him.
Noritoshi Kamo then dies from his wounds, leaving behind a mystery about his true motives and master.
