From the fan backlash on Twitter, it’s clear that many people are extremely upset.
Gojo Satoru holds a special place in the hearts of “Jujutsu Kaisen” enthusiasts. Some people claim that he is even more beloved than the series’ main character, Yuji Itadori.
So the decision to kill off such an important character left many fans reeling.
However, there is a segment of fans who believe that Gojo’s sacrifice could be a strategic move, paving the way for Yuji Itadori’s character’s storyline to develop and deepen.
However, it may be too early to mourn the loss of Gojo. Several fan theories are circulating, suggesting potential avenues for Gojo’s return to the series.
