TNews - October 12, 2023, In the latest Jujutsu Kaisen manga chapters, fans have been left on the edge of their seats as they witness the unfolding events in the battle between Gojo Satoru and the malevolent sorcerer, Sukuna.
In Chapter 236, a shocking revelation left readers puzzled, as Gojo's body was split into two. The abrupt introduction of a character, purportedly the strongest fighter 400 years ago, who was defeated by Sukuna within just two chapters, raises questions about the story's timeline and coherence. With the manga expected to conclude this year, it seems there is more to the story than meets the eye.
Gojo's Afterlife Revelations
In Chapter 236, we see Gojo in an afterlife setting, surrounded by his deceased friends. Strangely, Gojo bids farewell to these friends instead of his students.
This raises the question of his intentions: where does he plan to go? Following this, Gojo heads to the airport, but the manga doesn't reveal whether he chooses to go North or South, as suggested by Nanami's cryptic advice.
He seems to prefer to look back at the past rather than ahead at the future. These details offer intriguing glimpses into Gojo's character and motivations.
A Mysterious Disappearance
The manga leaves us hanging with Gojo's body separated into upper and lower halves. When Sukuna expresses respect for Gojo, it becomes apparent that Gojo didn't exert his full power during their battle in the Heian era.
Furthermore, when Kashimo Hajime arrives for a brief two-chapter showdown with Sukuna, Gojo exhibits a faint smile, which we assume is a sign of respect for his victor. However, the manga doesn't show any trace of Gojo's body beside Sukuna during the battle, leaving fans puzzled about Gojo's fate. Did his body disintegrate into ashes?
The Absence of Spectators
A significant mystery unfolds during the fight between Kashimo and Sukuna in Chapter 237: the absence of onlookers. Notably, characters like Yuuta and others, who could have been spectators, are nowhere to be seen.
This deliberate choice may be a tactic employed by Gege Akutami to confuse readers. Recall how Gojo came back to life after being defeated by Toji using Reverse Cursed Technique (RCT). He returned even stronger than before, though his core Cursed Energy (CE) was located in his severed body.
This scenario echoes Gojo's apparent demise in the fight against Sukuna, where his body was severed, rendering him unable to use CE. But there's an important detail here: Yuuta has demonstrated the ability to use RCT on himself and others, such as Yuuji. The absence of spectators during the Kashimo fight opens up the possibility that Gege may have set the stage for Yuuta to revive Gojo using RCT.
The Countdown to the End
With the manga slated to conclude this year, there are still over 10 chapters remaining to tie up the story. After Kashimo's death, the protagonists find themselves without a frontline defender against Sukuna. This raises the question of what Yuuji can do in the face of Sukuna's overwhelming power, even if Higuruma takes his Cursed Technique (CT).
Yuuji would be easy prey for Sukuna, and Gojo Satoru remains the most fitting candidate to challenge him. He is, after all, considered the most potent character in the Jujutsu world. His birth has shifted the balance of Jujutsu, making curses stronger.
Gege Akutami might have strategically positioned Yuuta to heal Gojo, allowing Gojo to return when Yuuji is in dire straits. At this point, Gojo would undoubtedly be much stronger than before, setting the stage for an epic showdown against Sukuna.
In conclusion, Jujutsu Kaisen's narrative seems to be aligning for Gojo's triumphant return, courtesy of RCT and the assistance of his beloved student, Yuuta. As the series approaches its climax, all the clues seem to point towards Gojo's resurrection and his ultimate showdown with the mighty Sukuna.
The mysteries and questions surrounding the story only add to the anticipation and excitement for what's to come. What do you think? Do these points resonate with your theories, or do you have a different perspective on the story's future? It's clear that Gojo is "The Strongest," and it's only a matter of time before he returns to face Sukuna, who will undoubtedly meet his match in a stronger Gojo.
