With the recent Jujutsu Kaisen manga chapter, many fans were surprised that the author killed off their favorite character and expressed their disappointment through social media platforms.
While it isn’t a hundred percent certain that Gojo has died, he is at his wit’s end, and given how strong Sukuna is, it is nigh impossible to turn the tables. However, many fans are still optimistic about an alternative.
So, will Gojo come back to life after Chapter 236? After being cut in half, Gojo is lifelessly lying on the ground, but we can’t say for sure. There is an equal chance of Satoru Gojo dying for real and being resurrected or surviving at the last moment. We could see a couple of ways in which he would be brought back to life: the awakening of his reversed cursed technique and a hidden hint with his companions, including Nanami, Geto, and Mei Mei.
How Did Gojo Satoru Die in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236?
Chapter 236 brought an end to the desperate struggle between Sukuna and Gojo as each exerted their strongest techniques to trample the other. However, even though Gojo’s Hollow Purple has given him an upper hand, Sukuna surprised everyone.
He unleashed one of the strongest Shikigami in the world of Jujutsu Kaisen, Mahoraga, which gave him an advantage over Gojo’s formidable domain, Infinity. Taking the opportunity to attack the weak point, Sukuna overpowered the opponent and cut Gojo in half.
Will Gojo Come Back to Life After Chapter 236?
Although it appears as if the author is intent on killing the fan-favorite character, he leaves a couple of possibilities through which it may be possible to either save Gojo from death’s door or resurrect him entirely.
Firstly, Gojo has the Reversed Cursed Technique, which can heal any mortal wounds, as seen in Chapter 225 when he was sliced deep into the neck by Toji.
This technique uses the negative cursed energy and transforms it into positive energy, healing injuries at an alarming rate, and it was previously revealed that it is linked to the sorcerer’s brain.
In the battle against Toji, Gojo’s recovery from injuries is almost akin to resurrection, and it is also shown that as long as his head is intact, he can recover from any deadly wounds.
In the battle against Sukuna, only his lower half is severely damaged. So, if he can keep his consciousness and awaken the latent power of the Reversed Cursed Technique, it is possible to heal himself to survive the current predicament.
Secondly, following his fatal attack, Gojo bids farewell to his companions in an airport, which is present in the afterlife as they board a plane. Mei Mei’s words provide us with a definitive clue when she says how Gojo should move North if he wants to look at himself from a different perspective or South if he wants to stay the same.
While it isn’t exactly a solution on how he can come back to life, it could be a foreshadowing of his reawakening, which would make Gojo even stronger than before, making his resurrection more than a mere possibility.
It’s been seen time and again in anime stories where the characters transcend human limits by going through flashbacks and heeding the words of their trusted companions.
So, do you believe he will be resurrected in Chapter 237 or later? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
