In the mysterious world of Jujutsu Kaisеn, where good and evil are often difficult to distinguish, the fates of the characters are as unpredictable as the curses they face. While fans mourn the loss of beloved characters like Kokichi Muta, Riko Amanai, and Toji Fushiguro in the ongoing season, it is the tragic journey of Suguru Gеto that has left a lasting impact.
Geto’s transformation from a trusted ally to a sinister character and his permanent death at the hands of his best friend, Gojo Satoru, are incredibly emotional moments. for fans to endure.
Suguru Gеto begins to go downhill after Riko’s death. The belief that Jujutsu witches used magic to protect people began to decline. To repeat the words of Toji Fushiguro, all the events that followed led him to believe the claim that humans were actually monks.
This drastic change in perspective led him towards a world without non-witches. And the rest is history.
Is Geto still alive in Kenjaku? What clues in Jujutsu Kaisen Part 2 suggest that Suguru Geto may still be present or influential even though he is clearly dead?
In the movie Jujutsu Kaisеn 0, Geto was mortally wounded after being defeated by Yuta Okkatsu, and he breathed his last in front of his best friend, suffering death at the hands of that same friend, Gojo Satoru. .
From there, we thought that Suguru Geto died in the Jujutsu Kaisen series, like in the movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0. However, after Geto’s death at the hands of Gojo, his body became the vessel of the mind of a witch The old man’s name is Kenjaku.
In the anime, he reappears as “Pseudo-Geto,” living in Geto’s body while being controlled by Kenjaku’s mind.
However, recent hints in Jujutsu Kaisеn Season 2 suggest that Suguru Gеto may still be lurking in the shadows, leaving fans eagerly anticipating his potential return.
During the Shibuya Incident, Psеudo-gеto did not foresee that Gojo’s presence would cause a reaction in Gеto’s body.
In Chapter 91 of the manga Jujutsu Kaisеn, Kеnjaku and Gojo engage in a confrontation that eventually leads to Gojo being captured in the Prison Realm. Even though Gojo had keen perception through his six eyes, his nature had a feeling that the figure in front of him was not the real Gеto Suguru.
The impostor then reveals that he is inhabiting Gеto’s body through an ancient technique.
How does Kenjaku’s innate technique allow him to control corpses and mimic individuals?

Kеnjaku possesses a unique Innate Technique that allows him to implant his brain into a corpse, taking over that person’s abilities and memories. This technique results in a realistic simulation, with the only identifying mark being a horizontal scar on the forehead. This ability has enabled Kеnjaku to live for millennia, using different hosts over time.
So, Kеnjaku went to Gеto’s body, possibly using Itadori’s mother, Kaori, as his final host before Gеto. He used his power to become like Gеto—almost exactly like him. Why did he do this?
Well, the main reason seems to be that he wants Gеto’s special ability called Cursed Soul Manipulation. And he got it. But we’re not really sure about Kеnjaku’s full plan because it hasn’t been fully explained yet.
Kenjaku’s power allows him to control corpses and make them appear alive. He took their memories and skills so it seemed very real. Since he has the original owner’s energy, it’s hard to tell if it’s Kenjaku or the actual person in charge of the body. This means that although he is very good at pretending to be someone else, Kenjaku does not actually bring that person back to life.
As Kenjaku revealed to Gojo that he was an impostor, while Gojo was sealed in the Prison Realm, he took some time to directly talk to Gеto in Kеnjaku’s body. He urged Gеto to awaken and asked why he let himself be manipulated by Kеnjaku.
In episode 10 of season 2, when Gojo said these words, a notable reaction occurred in Gеto’s body. It began with a slight twitch of the hand and escalated into a startling development as Gеto’s body seemed to be suffocated.
This suggests that somewhere deep inside, Suguru Geto may still be alive and Gojo’s voice acted as an awakening for him.
Surprised by how his body reacted, Gеto realized that body and soul existed at the same time, because otherwise there was no other reasonable explanation for this absurd phenomenon.
What actually happened was that Suguru’s muscle memory reacted even after Kеnjaku’s brain was implanted inside him.
What is the concept of soul and body? How does the concept of cursed energy impact the separation of soul from body in the world of Jujutsu Kaisen?
In the world of Jujutsu Kaisеn, there is a fascinating debate about the nature of the soul. Mahito believes that the soul exists before the body and that emotions are the result of the soul’s activities. However, Kеnjaku disagrees and believes that the soul and body are one entity.
Mahito’s perspective envisions the soul as a type of mechanical crystal that generates emotions through a mysterious process. On the other hand, if we assume that the soul and body are inseparable, as Kеnjaku suggests, then it starts to make more sense.
From this perspective, soul and body are not separate entities but two aspects of the same whole. In this way, the soul is not a separate thing; it is the body, just as the body is the soul.
This idea also has a spiritual aspect, especially when we introduce the concept of cursed energy. Cursed energy seems to play a role in separating the soul from the body in some cases, leading to unique situations.
For example, consider Toji. His connection to cursed energy sets him apart. Without the cursed energy, his body and soul are one, explaining why when Ogami’s nephew transformed into Toji’s body, Toji essentially came back to life. Even though Granny Ogami’s technique only affects the body, it doesn’t matter because to Toji, his body is his soul.
Then there is Kеnjaku, who possesses people’s bodies without fundamentally changing them. This is unlike what we saw with Ogami’s nephew, where changing the body seemed to affect the soul.
Kenjaku’s unique abilities may be due to his physical brain, and there are hints of Gеto influence in Kenjaku’s speech.
This suggests that Gеto’s soul may still exist in his body, like Yuji and Sukuna. However, unlike our main character, Yuji, Kеnjaku has gained control of the body, allowing him to stay in it.
In this complex world where the nature of the soul and its relationship with the body is in question, Jujutsu Kaisen continues to weave a captivating story, exploring the depths of existence and the mind. human spirit in a supernatural context.
Considering how this plays out in the series, it’s clear that a part of Gеto remains in Kеnjaku, whether we call it a soul, a body memory, or something similar.
Even if Gеto doesn’t return as a full human being, there’s still a good chance he can play an important role in defeating Kenjaku. Kеnjaku is one of the most difficult Curse after Sukuna, posing a great challenge for Mages.
However, with Gеto’s inside help, against Kеnjaku’s full power, it could give the Mages an edge in taking down this formidable Curse.
The moment Kеnjaku takes control of Gеto’s body is a pivotal moment in Jujutsu Kaisеn. Its consequences are far-reaching and remain important to the ongoing story. Although it was initially believed that Kеnjaku’s technique completely erased the original soul, a scene in Shibuya suggests this may not have been the case.
