In Jujutsu Kaisen, Satoru Gojo is a fan favourite, but the manga has given the greatest sorcerer the depth he needs to be properly appreciated.
Satoru Gojo is and will always be Satoru Gojo, but the manga has forced the strongest sorcerer to overcome obstacles that have allowed readers to see him in a new light. Satoru displays himself as a kind and confident teacher during the first season of Jujutsu Kaisen, with the capacity to put on an astounding display of jujutsu wizardry whenever he sees fit. The combination of his two cursed tactics is impressive, but to properly understand Gege Akutami, one must be familiar with his manga.
Who Knows About Satoru Gojo 10 Ways It Is Different From Manga
Manga fans have learned to accept Satoru Gojo’s domineering nature in ways that anime viewers have not, thanks to the additional material presented in the Gojo’s Past arc and the Shibuya Incident arc. Future seasons of Jujutsu Kaisen’s anime will undoubtedly fill in the gaps, but fans must first read the manga to discover what makes Satoru Gojo the strongest jujutsu sorcerer.
10. Gojo is depicted in the manga as a man with the experience to back up his confident demeanour.
Few would argue that Satoru Gojo has no expertise as a jujutsu sorcerer, yet his teaching methods have been questioned by several. Manga readers, unlike anime fans, know better than to question Gojo’s methods.
Satoru’s levity and fun-loving attitude become admirable rather than disgusting after watching him grow up as the most powerful member of a corrupt society. This isn’t a man who treats others badly because it’s amusing; he’s a man who appreciates those who deserve it and have the merit to justify such treatment.
9. The Gojo’s Past Arc Makes It Easier To Empathize With The Strongest Sorcerer
To succeed, the most powerful jujutsu sorcerer does not require the sympathy of others. Gojo can achieve success anywhere he goes using a combination of the Limitless and Six Eyes cursed tactics.
Satoru Gojo, like many other good characters, is able to succeed by constantly eliciting sympathy from the audience. Instead of leaving their most overpowered character alone, Gege Akutami delves into Gojo’s backstory to explain just how he become the world’s strongest jujutsu sorcerer.
8. During Gojo’s battle with Toji Fushiguro, the manga reveals his dark side.
When Yuji Itadori was killed during the Cursed Womb arc, anime-only fans were given the opportunity to glimpse Gojo’s dark side, but they have yet to learn how this motivates the young teacher’s actions. Threatening to kill Tokyo Jujutsu High’s upper management may seem out of line, but it pales in comparison to Gojo’s psychotic expression after fighting Toji Fushiguro in the manga.
Gojo gets back on his feet after defeating Satoru the first time, and confronts the sorcerer killer with a smile that anime fans haven’t seen before. The future of Jujutsu Kaisen will undoubtedly reveal Gojo’s suppressed mania, but anime-only fans are still waiting for the day when they will be properly introduced to this aspect of his character.
7. The bond between Gojo and Geto shows that the most powerful sorcerer had a personal life.
If anime-only fans were to compile a list of Satoru Gojo’s peers, it would be extremely short. In fact, given how formidable Gojo-sensei is in comparison to the rest of the cast revealed in Season 1 of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime, that list may not even exist.
During the Gojo’s Past arc, Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto establish a relationship that demonstrates how Gojo interacts with his special grade peers. It also demonstrates Gojo’s trust in his allies, which has changed since his days as a student at Tokyo Jujutsu High.
6. Gojo’s motivations are explained in “We Are The Strongest.”
For those who have only seen the Jujutsu Kaisen anime, the duality between Gojo’s words and his actions is difficult to explain. Even the most formidable Jujutsu Kaisen opponents are easily defeated by the strongest sorcerer, but he spends his time teaching students how to work through the basics of harnessing cursed energy.
The root of Gojo’s philosophy isn’t revealed until fans read through the Gojo’s Past arc. Despite his proclivity for independence, Gojo wishes to build a society in which he may be surrounded by peers. Despite the fact that he is powerful enough to destroy every living being on the planet, Satoru understands that people are stronger when they work together.
5. The Beautiful Best Man’s Black And White Manga Print Doesn’t Do Him Justice
Satoru Gojo’s unmistakable attractiveness is one of the reasons fans have fallen in love with him since the anime debut of Jujutsu Kaisen. His luscious white hair is perfectly complemented by a pair of gleaming blue eyes, demonstrating the expertise of the MAPPA staff.
Despite the fact that Gojo still exudes the same boyish confidence as in the anime, the black and white nature of manga fails to do him justice. Fan artists have tried their hardest to bridge the gap between manga and anime, but for the time being, MAPPA is the best at Gojo.
4. Gojo is currently imprisoned in the Prison Realm in the manga.
The Prison Realm is the most significant distinction between Satoru Gojo in the current anime timeline of Jujutsu Kaisen and the manga timeline. The cursed tool that currently ties Gojo is maybe the only jujutsu sorcery item capable of removing Gojo from the battlefield. The Gojo that anime fans are familiar with is carefree, but the man in the manga is currently enslaved to the point where he can’t even keep Yuji alive.
3. Unlimited Void Catapults Domain Expansion to New Heights
Even the most powerful jujutsu sorcerer has been forced to learn new skills since his debut, which may surprise some, but as a teacher, Gojo understands that learning leads to strength.
Satoru Gojo’s Unlimited Void Domain Expansion has already been seen by anime viewers, but only manga readers have seen this technique pushed to its limits with Gojo’s immediate Domain Expansion technique.
2. Manga readers can appreciate the true exclusivity of Satoru’s Special Grade.
Only manga readers know how really exclusive this club of jujutsu sorcerers is, whereas anime-only fans have always imagined Gojo is a member of the most elite group of jujutsu sorcerers. Only five people have been given the designation of special grade sorcerer, and one of them was assassinated shortly after his newfound power was recognised by his peers.
Gojo’s entire motive is based on the belief that cursed energy is becoming more powerful, implying that mankind will have little to no chance of removing cursed spirits from Japan until new special grade sorcerers are welcomed into the world of jujutsu sorcery.
10. Gojo will most likely be a shell of his former self when he returns.
The manga version of Jujutsu Kaisen has taken its time to develop Gojo’s character in ways that the anime has yet to depict. Manga Satoru is a different beast from the man introduced in the first season of the anime, from his prowess as a sorcerer to his mental fortitude, and this could just be the beginning.
Satoru’s release will send the strongest jujutsu sorcerer down a spiral of misery that fans have only seen glimpses of after being locked in the Prison Realm for what will most likely be the entire Culling Game. This version of Gojo has yet to appear in the manga, so it’s just speculation at this point, but if Gojo’s reaction to failure is any indication of his future, fans should be wary of the guy who emerges from the Prison Realm.
