Jujutsu Kaisen Manga 237 is expected to provide resolution regarding Gojo Satoru’s death. Although the reality of his death remains unclear, there is a possibility that the events that have already unfolded hint at the potential return of the beloved character.
The dramatic turn of events has left readers in shock, and the surprising twist towards the end of the battle has been extremely heart-wrenching and traumatic for fans. In this article, we will explore the possibilities of Gojo Satoru’s return in Jujutsu Kaisen Manga 237.
Jujutsu Kaisen Manga 237 – Will Gojo make his return-Is the return of Satoru Gojo a possibility?
The return of Satoru Gojo is a narrative that is both debatable and highly plausible. While there are various reasons to support this claim, the fact that Sukuna may break Gojo’s limitless requirements for a new set of analogies supports the notion of Gojo being reincarnated and returning from purgatory. The visuals of the afterlife and the conversation with Nanami hinted at a possible return of the sorcerer, a theory considered unlikely but not entirely impossible.
Jujutsu Kaisen Manga Chapter 237 – All the reasons pointing towards Satoru Gojo’s return
Here are all the reasons, analogies, and arguments pointing towards Satoru Gojo’s reincarnation:
1-Conversation with Nanami and Mei Mei’s analogy
Chapter 236 of Jujutsu Kaisen places Gojo in the afterlife, where he meets Nanami, Geto, Mei Mei, and others. Nanami once recounted the story of his meeting with Mei Mei, who told him that if he wished to seek a new facet of himself, he must go south, and if he wanted to let things remain as they were and stay as they were, he must go north. Nanami chose the latter, accompanied by Haibara, bidding farewell to Mei Mei.
Gojo decided to go north and did not join the others on the plane to Okinawa (the southernmost prefecture in Japan). This is an indication that Gojo chose to rediscover himself and refused to join the deceased on their journey.
2-The Buddhist philosophy of the journey north
During his battle against Toji Fushiguro, Gojo referred to himself as “the Honored,” citing the Lotus Sutra of Buddhism. Gojo has been likened to Buddha and is said to have transcended the form and nature of a human being.
Furthermore, Buddha’s journey north has been mentioned in Buddhist texts and is associated with self-discovery and enlightenment. Gojo’s self-discovery could lead to his return from the afterlife as a changed individual. The general cycle of life, death, and rebirth will be completed, thereby achieving liberation from the cycle of Samsara by attaining Nirvana or Moksha, which is enlightenment.
3-The lotus flower and Buddhist symbolism
The lotus flower presented in Chapter 236 of Jujutsu Kaisen alludes to Satoru’s reincarnation. In ancient Buddhist philosophy, the lotus flower symbolizes rebirth, self-regeneration, and enlightenment.
It also symbolizes beauty, purity, and honesty. While Gojo is shown cold and lifeless on the ground, his visual from the afterlife and the depiction of the lotus are clear signs of rebirth. While the cycle of rebirth and reincarnation carries a heavy toll, Gojo must rediscover himself and be prepared to exchange or lose everything during this journey.
4-Regeneration with the Reverse Cursed Technique
The battle between Gojo and Toji showed the former using his Reverse Cursed Technique to heal, regenerate, and return from the dead. The Reverse Cursed Technique draws its energy directly from the sorcerer’s brain.
- This was explained and shown during Gojo’s conversation with Toji, where he mentioned that Toji should have aimed for his brain with the cursed tool to kill him.
- This was also demonstrated during the Culling Games arc when Kashimo targeted Hikari’s brain.
When we piece together these elements, we can hope that Gojo may indeed return using the Reverse Cursed Technique. Additionally, his stomach is also intact, giving him the opportunity to use this technique. It is a theory filled with hope, and theories often lead to contrasting conclusions and outcomes.
While we hope that “the Honored” will return, we must also remember that a teacher’s death in an anime is the most heart-wrenching yet necessary tool to evoke intensified emotions and narrative patterns.
Jujutsu Kaisen Manga 237 could depict the return of Gojo Satoru, and he might actually aid Kashimo in the battle against Sukuna. While we are filled with theories and try to convince ourselves not to accept this tragedy, it is important for us to understand that the loss of a hero is the replacement of the hero by their successor, a popular meta-narrative of the tragic structure of an anime.
