Last week, Jujutsu Kaisen fans breathed a sigh of relief, thinking that Gojo Satoru had won the battle against Sukuna. It seemed like everything was fine in the world of JJK, but our happiness was short-lived. When chapter 236 spoilers dropped, they hit us like a gut punch.
We all knew that Sukuna could make a comeback in this chapter, but what blinded us was the possibility that Gojo might be dead. Gege Akutami threw us this curveball, leading to a frenzy of theories about whether Gojo is really gone for good. While it’s unlikely, it’s not impossible.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236 Spoilers: Gojo in the Afterlife
- The chapter starts with Gojo and Geto having a rather strange conversation in the afterlife. Gojo seems surprised to be there, muttering, “This is horrible,” to which Geto playfully scolds him for being impolite.
- Gojo reflects on something he once told his students: when you die, you’re all alone. He hopes this conversation is just a product of his imagination, trying to avoid admitting that he might be wrong.
- Geto isn’t too bothered and asks, “Who cares?” Gojo insists that it’s important. He mentions something about his father but doesn’t finish his thought. “It’s all right,” he sighs. “I asked Shoko to take care of it.”
JJK 236 Spoilers: Gojo Admits Sukuna Is Stronger
- When Geto asks, Gojo admits that Sukuna was stronger than him even if he didn’t use all his power. He says his chances of winning were slim even if Sukuna didn’t possess Megumi’s cursed technique. Geto is surprised by Gojo’s honesty and remarks that it’s astonishing that Sukuna made him admit that.
- Gojo sighs and says he gave it his all – he trained his body, skills, talent, and powers. He really wanted to challenge Sukuna, and in the end, he enjoyed it. On the contrary, he feels sorry for Sukuna, thinking that he couldn’t show his full strength in their battle.
- Initially jealous, Geto respects Gojo’s feelings. Gojo even wishes that Geto could be there to motivate him with a pat on the back, bringing tears to Geto’s eyes.
Is the Afterlife a Choice? What Did Gojo Choose?
It turns out that Gojo and Geto are not alone. Nanami and Haibara join them, adding some humor. Nanami remembers a funny conversation where they joked about leaving everything to Gojo and teasing him as a “pervert” for using sorcery for personal pleasure.
Gojo says he’s glad he didn’t die of old age or illness but at the hands of someone stronger. Nanami sympathizes but also tells him to stop talking like a samurai general. Haibara laughs, saying she noticed it too but didn’t want to point it out.
- Gojo asks about Nanami’s final moments, and Nanami explains that he had already asked Mei-san about it. She told him there were two things he could do: move north if you’re seeking a new facet of yourself or move south if you want to remain who you are. He tells them he chose the South without hesitation and doesn’t regret it.
- We think that moving North here means choosing to reincarnate, and choosing the South means the afterlife, but we can’t be entirely sure.
- Gojo smiles and says goodbye to everyone. The scene is a bit strange since if Gojo is dead, he should be saying goodbye to his students. Is he rejecting the afterlife? Will he return?
Sukuna Explains How He Killed Gojo
Cut to reality, Gojo’s lifeless body lies on the ground.
- Sukuna intervenes to explain Mahoraga’s powers. Mahoraga adapts to attacks over time, becoming more resilient. Sukuna always wanted Mahoraga to adapt and pierce Gojo’s Infinity.
- Once Mahoraga adapted, it changed its cursed energy production to neutralize Infinity. When Mahoraga attacked, it was different from Sukuna’s strike. Mahoraga cut the world itself, including space-time. Infinity doesn’t matter if you can cut the entire world.
- Still, Sukuna seems impressed. “Good job, Gojo Satoru. I’ll never forget you.”
The chapter ends when Kashimo steps in to take Gojo’s place in the fight. But between us, it’s a lost battle. Sukuna has proven to be too strong for all of them, and it will be interesting to see how things unfold from here.
Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236 Spoilers: Is Gojo Really Dead?
After the events of Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236, it seems that Gojo Satoru might have met his end. His death was something fans saw coming, and it was necessary for the story to progress. Without it, characters like Yuji, Yuta, and Megumi wouldn’t have the chance to step up. But the way Gojo’s exit was handled has led us to wonder if there’s more to the story.
- First of all, Gojo doesn’t say goodbye to his students in the afterlife, which is unusual. Instead, he bids farewell to those he encounters there. This small detail raises some questions. Could it mean something different from what we think?
- There’s also the question of the lotus flowers around Gojo in the afterlife. They symbolize rebirth and transformation. This leads us to wonder if Gojo’s journey is really over or if he might return in a new way.
- Nanami’s speech about “North” and “South” adds another layer of mystery. He says the choice between them is personal. Could this hint that Gojo finds a way to heal himself? Don’t forget he’s shown the ability to do so, as seen in his battle with Toji. But it could come at a cost, perhaps even his Six Eyes, a symbol of his immense power.
- If “North” means starting over and Gojo has to give up being the strongest sorcerer to survive, it aligns with the theme of rebirth. Gojo has always carried the burden of being the most powerful, so this could be a chance for him to live.
“Of course, this could mean that Gojo won’t be as much in the thick of the action, but it could be the perfect opportunity for him to guide Yuji when he faces Sukuna. Without the title of the strongest sorcerer, Gojo can offer wisdom and a different perspective.
These theories are not set in stone, but they showcase the exciting possibilities that Gege Akutami has set up in Chapter 236. Gojo Satoru’s ‘death’ has left fans with much to ponder, and we can’t wait to see where the story will go from here. It all starts here. One thing is certain: Gojo’s legacy will endure, no matter which path he takes.
