When reading this question, I had this realization that gambling in the Studio probably wouldn’t be that fun. There’s always a risk with how I portray the Studio that it’ll come across like the “A Nice Place to Visit” episode of Twilight Zone, but also I’ve gone on record that money is sort of just a prop for Studio residents. Maybe it’d still be fun to gamble or bet on things for some people, but I don’t think it’d hold Toji’s interest given my read on his character. So, of course, I wanted to show Toji passing the time in the normal Studio fashion, and figured it’d be fun to pair him with Megumi for it. I haven’t decided yet if Studio Megumi knows his relationship to Toji, given what he knows in the source material, but I figure it didn’t need to come up for this Ask to be answered in this fashion.
I’ve got three pictures this month that are commission rewards for Lord Tier Subscribers, and this is the first of them. Toji and Nanami are two Jujutsu Kaisen characters this Subscriber is fond of, so even though pairing them (especially this design of Nanami) doesn’t fit into the canon in any way, it’s what they wanted to see and I hope I delivered something satisfactory.
