Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the most popular modern anime and manga series that is currently ongoing, and it is known for its high caliber combat, fun characters, and comedy. The series was created by Gege Akutami and follows the adventures of Yuji Itadori, who joins a school of Jujutsu Sorcerers who aim to defeat powerful curses, the most powerful of whom Yuji has become the host of. His teacher is Gojo Satoru, the world’s most powerful sorcerer.
Please note that from this point on, the article will contain spoilers for the Jujutsu Kaisen manga.
Yuji has become the host of an ancient evil, Sukuna, also known as the King of Curses and one of the most powerful curse users in history by eating one of his fingers to save his friends from dying. His teacher, Gojo Satoru, recently faced Sukuna in mortal combat, which the latter won after an increasingly problematic battle and seemingly killing Gojo.
However, fans have been theorizing as to whether Gojo can be resurrected, and if so, how the process will take place. But as per a new theory, there’s a strong reason for Gojo to come back, and it’s not what fans would expect.
What will Gojo Satoru return for in Jujutsu Kaisen?
In a video released by YouTuber Companion on his channel, he theorized that one reason that Gojo might survive is that he still has something left to do, and he isn’t referring to his own personal goals of transforming the Jujutsu society or defeating Sukuna. No, he is instead referring to having a talk with Megumi and telling him the truth about his father Toji Fushiguro.
This is as per a revelation by Jujutsu Kaisen creator Gege Akutami, who had said in an interview back in 2021 about how Gojo Satoru would one day tell Megumi about who his father was and that he was the one who defeated and killed him. Gojo even refers to this in the latest chapter, chapter 236, and says he hasn’t done it yet but had asked his friend Shoko to take care of it in case he couldn’t do it himself.
Can Gojo come back to life in Jujutsu Kaisen?
As Gojo died during chapter 236 of the manga, Jujutsu Kaisen fans have been saddened and disappointed by his death, since he is the face of the series. He met an unexpected death as he lost his fight with Sukuna, and the coming chapter, chapter 237, could well show us more of what will happen next.
In a vision of the afterlife, Gojo had a conversation with Nanami, where Nanami shared with him that if he wanted to remain the way he was, he should go south, which Nanami himself chose. In contrast to that, if he wanted to change and learn about a new side of himself, he should go north instead. Fans are hoping that Gojo will choose to do the latter and return to life by doing so.
