The main protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen is Yuji Itadori. The story is also one of the popular stories in the manga. However, in terms of popularity as a character in the eyes of fans, Yuji is far behind his teacher at Tokyo Jujutsu High School. Who else is that teacher if not Satoru Gojo. Gojo is a character who appears with his hair up with his eyes covered with cloth. He has been ordained as the strongest mage in the world of Jujutsu Kaisen . As a supporting character, Gojo doesn’t appear much like Yuji. But, don’t worry! In Jujutsu Kaisen 0 which is a prequel to Jujutsu Kaisen, Gojo will be seen more. The film is scheduled to be released in Japan at the end of this month.
According to ComicBook , Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will have a lot of screen time dedicated to Gojo. This film will delve into the past of Jujutsu High School before Yuji’s arrival. The film will revolve around the calm Yuta Okkotsu and his supernatural abilities who depend on his missing friend to help him.
Yuta is mentioned several times in Jujutsu Kaisen . In anime season 1, Yuta is told as a 3rd grade student of Tokyo Jujutsu High School who is abroad. Until now, his figure has not been shown in the anime.
Meanwhile, in the movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0, Gojo will have a new look. Gojo, who usually appears with a black eye patch, will appear with a white eye patch. This color matches her hair.
Recently, Gojo topped the popularity poll conducted by LINE Research. Titled Who’s Your Favorite Character in Jujutsu Kaisen , the poll named Gojo the most favorite character. Not only among young fans, namely teenagers to their 30s, Gojo’s popularity swept all age groups of fans.
Gojo Satoru ranked #1 in all age groups in the recent survey done by LINE Research on Who’s Your Favorite Character in Jujutsu Kaisen.
The poll certainly proves how popular Gojo is among Jujutsu Kaisen fans , regardless of their age. In second place, the competition is more dynamic. Fans in their teens to 20s choose Inumaki Toge. While those in their 30s-40s chose Panda. Fans in their 50s prefer Yuji.
