Jujutsu Kaisen recently faced controversy with the release of chapter 221, as fans criticized the official Viz Media translation of Gojo’s dialogue. According to fans, the mistranslation disrupted the consistency of the manga. However, the creative team behind the series took note of the feedback and made a change to better reflect the intended meaning.
In the previous translation, Gojo’s response to the question of whether he would lose a fight against Sukuna was simply “No.” The updated translation now reads, “Nah, I’d win.”
This new dialogue is a direct callback to a conversation between Gojo and Yuji Itadori in chapter 3 when Itadori asked a similar question about Gojo’s chances against a fully powered Sukuna.

Story So Far (Spoilers)
Gojo Satoru was trapped in the Prison Realm for what seemed like 1,189 days, but in the Jujutsu Kaisen universe, it’s only been a surprising nineteen days. Time doesn’t pass in the Prison Realm, and Gojo is exhausted from his imprisonment and eager for a fight.
Upon his release, Gojo avoids Noritoshi’s death trap and confronts Suguru Geto (Kenjaku), the man who stole his best friend’s body. As Gojo prepares to battle Kenjaku, Sukuna enters the fray, possessing Megumi’s body. Sukuna reminds Gojo of his earlier promise to kill him, but before the two can clash, Noritoshi intervenes.
Sukuna, honoring their previous deal, backs off, as does Gojo. The two adversaries agree to settle their score on December 24th, the same day as Geto’s death anniversary. As chapter 221 concludes, Gojo confidently declares that he will defeat Sukuna, echoing the sentiment from the early chapters of the series.
As the manga continues to unfold, readers can look forward to the highly anticipated showdown between Gojo and Sukuna in the upcoming Jujutsu Kaisen chapters.
