This article includes spoilers for the “Jujutsu Kaisen” manga. Reader discretion is advised.
The popular Japanese media myjitsu shared an article pointing out that fans of the franchise Jujutsu Kaisen They have spun a theory towards a possible future resurrection of the character Satoru Gojo. It should be noted that the chapter in which this character died left open the possibility of a return of the character, because it was not made clear whether he chose the northern or southern exit, which was explained with the following phrase: “Move towards the northif you are looking for a new side of yourself or moving towards the southIf you want to continue being who you are».
«The most recent chapter of the “Jujutsu Kaisen” manga, exciting to date, was published in issue 45/2023 of Weekly Shonen Jump on October 10. While the fight to the death against Ryomen Sukuna continues at its peak, some readers cannot help but wonder about the future of the character Satoru Gojo».
«In chapter 238, “Inhuman Makyo Shinjuku Showdown, Part 15,” the battle continues to unfold. The “God of Thunder” Hajime Kashimo faces the fully incarnated Ryomen Sukuna. The last time, Hajime Kashimo He asked about the loneliness of being a strong man, and this time, Sukuna answered his question with his own theory about “love.” According to Sukuna, strong men who challenge him with all their might are already loved by him, and he responds to their love with battles. In other words, Sukuna’s solitude is nothing more than a luxury.».
«Satoru Gojo and Ryomen Sukuna, both with overwhelming power, suffered from loneliness of not having anyone who could understand them at the same time. In a sense, the answer Sukuna gave them this time can be considered a relief from their suffering. However, the story of “Jujutsu Kaisen” does not end here, but rather begins here. It can be said that the presence of Yuji Itadori, who intervened in the last scene of chapter 238, is a harbinger of this.».
«At first glance, Sukuna’s ideology is presented as the truth, and it might seem that Hajime Kashimo let himself be convinced by it and dispersed. However, Itadori entered the scene to deny Sukuna’s ideas. If Itadori is to be given a show as a hero, Sukuna’s ideas should be proven wrong.».
«If so, it seems unlikely that Gojo will leave the story as is. Being recognized for the absolute power that is Sukuna, and having a happy ending, would be the very result of affirming Sukuna’s idea. Gojo will not die happy and without regrets, but will be unhappily linked to this world».
«Regarding the possibility of Gojo’s resurrection, we can find several possible scenarios. The most striking is the juxtaposition of “south” (the past) and “north” (the future) in limbo. It is believed that Gojo is heading south with his former companions, but the possibility remains that he chooses the north and returns to this world. Some believe Gojo was modeled after the founder of Buddhism, Gautama, who anecdotally left through the north gate and became a monk. The line “Above the sky, Under the sky, I alone am worthy of honor,” thought to be abrupt, can be recovered here as an omen.».
