The Fate of Gojo Satoru in Jujutsu Kaisen: Is He Really Dead?
The Jujustu Kaisen franchise has introduced us to the iconic and beloved character of Gojo Satoru. With his strength, eccentricity, and stunning appearance, he has captured the hearts of fans all over the internet. However, it seems that his journey has come to an end.
In chapter 236 of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, released on Sunday, September 24, Gojo Satoru meets a tragic fate. He is mercilessly chopped in half by Ryomen Sukuna, the king of Curses.
This shocking turn of events has sent shockwaves through the Jujutsu Kaisen fandom. It is a heartbreaking scene that fans are still recovering from, and the future seems uncertain.
1. Is Gojo Satoru really dead?
Based on chapter 236 of the manga, it is highly likely that Gojo Satoru is dead. Sukuna managed to find a way to counter Gojo’s infinity technique and effectively sliced through his body.
The chapter begins with Gojo encountering his deceased friends, including Geto, Nanami, Haibara, Riko, and Kuroi. He engages in a fascinating conversation with Geto, discussing his fight with Sukuna.
Gojo praises Sukuna’s strength and admits that Sukuna did not even use his full power against him. He also acknowledges that even without Megumi’s cursed technique, he probably wouldn’t have been able to defeat Sukuna.
Gojo expresses his desire for Geto to be there to motivate him and bids farewell to his friends. The next scene is where the heart-wrenching moment occurs: Gojo lies on the ground, seemingly bleeding to death.
Sukuna then reveals the workings of Mahoraga’s technique against Gojo. Mahoraga’s ability can adapt to any technique it comes into contact with, making it incredibly powerful.
2. Will he recover?
We all find it difficult to accept the possibility of Gojo’s death, and it seems that Sukuna has proven us wrong. However, there is a glimmer of hope that Gojo might make a comeback.
Considering that Gojo survived Toji’s surprise attack in a previous encounter, where even Gojo himself mentioned that attacking his head would have been a better strategy, there is a chance for him to recover since his head remains unharmed.
Furthermore, at the end of the chapter, a new character named Kashimo appears, which may provide an opportunity for Gojo’s survival.
