The answer to the most pressing question currently in the mind of Jujutsu Kasien fans, specifically who will win the battle between Satoru Gojo and Sukuna is simple: Gojo will die, and the manga heralded this development.
While many fans might beg to differ in the inevitability of Gojo’s death for Sukuna, the reality is that author Gege Akutami foretold his death multiple times throughout the story. Likewise, other fans might argue that if Gojo dies it will be against Kenjaku, the most dangerous true villain, a mastermind who has slowly and methodically plotted for the future. this situation. Again, the correct answer to this is that Akutami has repeatedly suggested that the main climate battle will take place between Gojo and Sukuna, and that the most powerful witch in the world will actually die to usher in an era. where his disciples would take up the torch. .
Gojo’s death before Sukuna will usher in a new age of witches
Gojo foretold his own death in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter #11. There, while thinking about Yuji’s death, he talks about how he is unfit to be a teacher, but he is willing to do so if he can succeed in helping the world. next system. He believes that if he succeeds, he will be able to “reset” the “jujutsu world”, which explains Gojo’s recent “bad” actions. The idea that the world won’t need him anymore is further emphasized in Chapter #91 when, after being relegated to the Prison Kingdom, Gojo first admits that he was wrong but then, on reflection, he He expressed confidence in his students’ ability to get the job done regardless of the challenges. Considering that most of the story features his students acting on their own, Gojo may be right.
Fast-forward to the current battle with Sukuna, where the battle is being watched closely, among others are Yuji, Yuta, Hakari, Mai and Panda, who are learning a lot about Sukuna as well as his own abilities. Surname. This cannot be a coincidence. If Gojo thinks they are ready to lead, and by all accounts, he should have no problem dying before Sukuna, especially since he feels confident that the job is changing. Their jujutsu science has begun, and they will move forward. In fact, as Ben Kenobi did in Star Wars, he could “allow” himself to be killed if it would set the “kids” on the path to greatness he believes. they are navigable.
Gojo’s death will allow him to fulfill his role of mentor
This is not to say that Gojo’s impending death will not be tragic and heartbreaking. Gojo has not only supported and developed his students in manga, but in the past 5 years, Gojo has also built and developed a fandom in real life that few contemporary manga/anime heroes have. But how sad his death will be for fans, according to his logic, it will help accomplish exactly what joyous hopes to do in becoming a jujutsu teacher and mentor, namely bringing about positive but fundamental change to Jujustu Kaisen universe, and put that world in the hands of a new, new cohort that is likely to be truly welcome in the “new age of magic.”
