Unless you’ve been completely disconnected from the internet, you’ve likely heard about the recent developments in the “Jujutsu Kaisen” manga.
For those not up-to-date, a significant character has met an unexpected end in the manga, and fans are expressing their discontent with the current direction of the story.
Adding to the controversy, “Jujutsu Kaisen” author Gege Akutami made a comment that has further stirred the pot.
Fans, already reeling from the recent events, were taken aback by the author’s remarks. If you’re wary of spoilers, consider this your warning!
Up to chapter 235, everything seemed to be progressing smoothly. The fan-favorite character, Gojo, appeared to have the upper hand in his battle against Sukuna. By the end of chapter 235, many believed Gojo had secured his victory.
However, chapter 236 dropped a bombshell: Gojo was shockingly killed off. While Gojo has faced grave injuries before, this time, it appears to be a definitive end. However, some fan theories suggest otherwise.
Jujutsu Kaisen Author Shares His Comment
In “Weekly Shonen Jump,” manga authors often share comments, sometimes related to the manga and sometimes not.
Gege Akutami remarked, “Due to the break, it seems like I forgot to draw one chapter.” While intended as a light-hearted comment, the fan community reacted quite critically.
Considering the ambiguity surrounding Gojo’s defeat by Sukuna, it’s evident that some details are still missing.
Akutami’s comment about inadvertently skipping a chapter without providing specifics about the battle has only intensified fans’ curiosity and frustration.
The “Jujutsu Kaisen” community’s sentiments were palpable, with many resorting to the hashtag “GegeWhenICatchYou.” This hashtag, along with “Gojo” and “Jujutsu Kaisen,” began trending on Twitter.
Following Akutami’s online comment, the fanbase’s reactions intensified. Here’s what some fans had to say about the situation:
From the flurry of fan reactions on Twitter, it’s evident that many are deeply upset.
Gojo Satoru holds a special place in the hearts of “Jujutsu Kaisen” enthusiasts. Some argue he’s even more beloved than the series’ main character, Yuji Itadori.
Thus, the decision to kill off such a pivotal character has left many fans reeling.
Yet, there’s a segment of the fanbase that believes Gojo’s sacrifice might be a strategic move, paving the way for Yuji Itadori’s character arc to evolve and deepen.
However, it might be premature to mourn Gojo’s loss entirely. Several fan theories are circulating, suggesting potential avenues for Gojo’s return to the series.
