Just a week ago, Jujutsu Kaisen enthusiasts were in high spirits, celebrating Gojo’s win against Sukuna. But the tide has turned with recent spoilers indicating Gojo might not have been the ultimate victor.
The fierce face-off between Gojo and Sukuna has spanned three months. After his release from the prison realm, Gojo didn’t hesitate and directly engaged Sukuna. Throughout their confrontations, Gojo seemed to have the advantage.
Many fans anticipated that, even with Sukuna’s formidable skills, Gojo would eventually triumph. Being the most potent sorcerer, Gojo had, even before their clash, confidently asserted his impending victory over Sukuna.
In an unexpected move, Gojo executed his hollow purple technique, causing devastation in Shinjuku. It appeared that Sukuna was defeated, and Gojo had secured his win.
But celebrations were cut short. The spoiler for chapter 236 presented a different narrative. The King of Curses, in a final move, proved too much for Gojo.
Sukuna’s unique technique not only overshadowed Gojo’s infinite void but also inflicted a fatal wound, splitting Gojo in two.
Chapter 236 of Jujutsu Kaisen illustrated Gojo’s poignant reunion with the spirits of his old comrades, including Nanami and Geto. In his last moments, Gojo felt contentment, knowing his end was at the hands of someone even more formidable.
While Gojo found peace, fans voiced their shock and grief on social media platforms, notably Twitter. Here’s a look at how fans responded to Gojo’s sudden departure on social media:
With Gojo Satoru no longer in the picture, the daunting task of halting Sukuna falls squarely on the shoulders of Yuji Itadori and his comrades.
They’ll need to muster all their strength and determination if they hope to confront and possibly overcome Sukuna.
Gege Akutami, the mastermind behind Jujutsu Kaisen, has taken a daring step by sidelining arguably the series’ most beloved character.
Yet, for Yuji Itadori’s character development, enduring the pain of losing a dear ally might have been an essential narrative choice.
Adding to the suspense, the series is nearing its conclusion. Akutami previously hinted at wrapping up the manga by 2023.
