Fans in Chile Set up an altar for Gojo
Chile, located on the southwest coast of South America, has its own “Jujutsu Kaisen” fan base.
In a heartfelt gesture, fans in Santiago de Chile established an altar in memory of Gojo Satoru on September 21, which housed Crunchyroll’s billboards for Jujutsu Kasien season 2.
The altar was decorated with flowers and touching messages for Gojo. Upon closer inspection, you can make out the red lipstick mark on Gojo’s photo.
Images of this tribute quickly spread on social networks, even attracting attention from the official Twitter account “Santiago Metro”.
Fans across the globe expressed their admiration for the dedication of the Chilean anime community. Some notable reactions include:
When referring to the hickey on Gojo’s face, one fan commented: “I don’t know about you, but I would never kiss a one meter wall XD it’s full of bacteria!!! ”
“THE FIRST THING I READ WAS “Heaven Gains an Angel”
And cry 😭 Oh my god, you are the best”
“The last time the world grieved over the death was that of Jesus Christ”
“Can it be said that Satoru Gojo and Jujutsu Kaisen broke the Internet like that (which) is rarely seen or not yet the case?”
“When I told my Japanese friend that Chile is a country that loves anime, I was not exaggerating. What will they think if they see this?”
“If gege akutami (author) comes back and makes Gojo exist, I’ll be really angry, lol. I love this moment”
“Gojo Satoru carved his name as an important figure in human history”
It should be pointed out that Gojo Satoru has survived very deep injuries before, and it wouldn’t be unusual if Gojo was somehow revived.
In fact, fans have already started theorizing about how Gojo will return based on his dialogue with his friends in the previous chapter.
This isn’t the first time a ceremony like this has been held for an anime character. Some fans in China even held a funeral for the death of a main character in Attack on Titan.
