Five years have passed since the sealing of Satoru Gojo, a popular character in Jujutsu Kaisen. Since his sealing in the 90th episode of the original story, he has not been involved in any of the main episodes. As a result, fans eagerly anticipated his return, not knowing when it would happen.
However, Satoru Gojo finally returns in the 221st chapter, released on April 24, 2023! In this article, we will briefly introduce his reappearance after four years.
※ This article contains spoilers for Jujutsu Kaisen, so please be careful when reading.
Is Satoru Gojo finally making his comeback?
With the help of Hana Kurusu, who possesses the power to prove any sorcery technique, and her vessel, they finally revived Gojo. However, when they tried to undo the seal in the room, Hana stopped them and asked, “Are you going to do it here?”
Hana was worried about Gojo’s mental state, having spent his time in the Prison Realm where physical time doesn’t flow, and he may have experienced over 100 years alone.
Despite this, they decided to go ahead with undoing the seal at the Fourth Institute. However, when they did so, Gojo was nowhere to be seen… but he had indeed been revived and appeared before Kenjaku!
Even after 3 years, Gojo is still as badass as ever!
Using the power of Kusakabe, who can prove any curse technique, and her vessel Kurusu, the team managed to revive Gojo. Next, they tried to unseal him in a room, but Kusakabe stopped them, asking if they intended to do it there.
Kusakabe was concerned about Gojo’s mental state, as he had spent time in the Prison Realm, where time does not flow normally, and he may have experienced over a hundred years there on his own.
Despite this, they proceeded to unseal him in the Fourth Training Ground of the Tokyo College of Technology. However, when they did, Gojo was nowhere to be found… but he had already revived and appeared before Kusakabe! As expected of the strongest!
Moreover, despite being sealed away, he showed no signs of weariness. On the contrary, he looked down at Kusakabe with his usual beautiful face, and when he made a flippant remark, he retorted, “Shouldn’t you choose your words more carefully? This is a matter of life and death.”
Afterward, he demonstrated his quick wit and sharp tongue by performing a fiery skit against Kusakabe, Mahito, and Sukuna, who had entered the fray. But, as expected, he didn’t need to worry about his mental state…
In the final panel, he even declares victory against a formidable enemy. Usually, this would be a death flag, but we can only hope that the amazing Gojo will turn it around.
When was Gojo sealed?
Gojo was sealed in the 90th chapter of “Weekly Shonen Jump,” released on January 4, 2020. It was later included in volume 11 of the series.
His resurrection happened in the 221st chapter, published on April 24, 2023, which means it has been a whopping 1,190 days (3 years, three months, and four days) since his last appearance and a staggering 131 chapters have passed since then. It’s hard to believe so much time has passed.
Despite his long absence, it’s no surprise that his return caused a buzz and made it to the trending topics, as he is such a beloved character. But, perhaps, the excitement was even more significant because of the long wait.
List of things that have happened since Gojo was sealed
- Kento Nanami is deceased
- Nobara Kugisaki’s fate is unknown
- Yuta Okkotsu and Kinji Hakari are now allies
- Maki Zenin massacred members of the Zenin Clan
- Jogo begins the process of Decay
- Yoshiki Kujaku is deceased
- Mahito now possesses Suguru Geto
- Tsumiki Fushiguro is deceased
Since the sealing of Gojo, the worst things have continued to happen in the main story of Jujutsu Kaisen. However, some events might not have happened if Gojo had been present. Looking at these events summarized like this honestly makes one realize what has been lost…
Due to the dire situation thus far, we hope Gojo’s revival will change the course of events. If he were defeated and killed, it would be nothing but despair. Instead, we hope to see his overwhelming strength again and that he will bring hope to everyone.
Will Gojo vs. Sukuna and Kenjaku finally happen?
In chapter 221, Gojo appeared before Sukuna and Kenjaku, and the fight began immediately. However, both sides had something they wanted to do before the fight, so the fight was put on hold. The day of the final battle was set for December 24.
The current date is November 19, so there is nearly a month until that day. Both sides will be preparing for the battle during that time. It’s exciting to think about what kind of intense battle will unfold.
Welcome back Satoru Gojo!
After a 3-year hiatus, Gojo has finally made his long-awaited return! With his polished skills and an overwhelmingly powerful presence, he immediately started stirring up trouble. However, with his stable and unbeatable strength, his recovery has brought high hopes for the future direction of the story!
