Jujutsu Kaisen is a popular dark Shonen manga and anime series. The series features a number of iconic characters, but fans mainly feel drawn to the great teacher, Satoru Gojo. However, despite Gojo’s global popularity, not everyone seems to like him – especially the series’ creator.
Time and time again, the mangaka makes comments about characters beloved by fans, leaving them speechless with obvious hatred for the most powerful wizard of modern times. The eccentric instructor consistently ranks high in popularity polls and his fans absolutely adore him.
However, shortly after Gojo won a major popularity poll, Akutami shared his advice with the fans who voted for him. This message is especially for women.
Why Jujutsu Kaisen Fans Believe Gege Akutami Hates Gojo
Popular Twitter user JJK (Mya) recently shared an old artwork of Gege Akutami after Satoru Gojo won the popularity poll during Jump Festa 2019. Along with the artwork, Gege Akutami also gave advice to fans: “Those who voted for Gojo. Especially women. Here’s some friendly advice. Please choose Nanami.”

After all, it’s no secret that Nanami is Gege’s favorite character. According to Comic Book, Gege Akutami shared in an interview from 2022: “At first, I liked Sukuna the most. Mainly on his graphic side, inspired by everything I’ve read. Nanami is the first character I created and developed myself. So he is my favorite character at the moment.”
As for Gojo, even if he tried, the mangaka couldn’t be more interested. Following the huge success of the Hidden Treasure/Early Death arc, Gege shared a special message thanking the animators for their hard work. In his long message, Gege simply commented on Gojo with a cute doodle: “The characters in the crowd also have top-notch animation.”
After all, Gojo is actually the main character of the entire arc, so calling him a mob character is inaccurate. However, that wasn’t the only time Gege showed bitterness towards Gojo.
According to Viz Mangag Musings, Gege Akutami shared in January 2020: “Now that Gojo is gone, it looks like 2020 will be a good year.” He made this comment when fans were heartbroken after witnessing Gojo being sealed during the Shibuya incident.
Previously, Viz Mangag Musings also shared his comment from November 2019: “Something that Satoru Gojo doesn’t have… Maybe personality.”
Jujutsu Kaisen fans are once again left speechless after Gege Akutami’s old comment about Gojo resurfaced. One user commented: “This is when he decided Gojo needed to go, or maybe he took a poll to find out if his death would be painful or not.”
Another fan shared: “Gojo’s first hater is his creator…”
One fan also commented: “This man frankly hates Gojo for no good reason.”
While Gojo fans were not happy about this comment, some Jujutsu Kaisen fans also supported Gege. One fan commented: “I wouldn’t blame Gege for choosing Nanami. He really is the greenest flag.”
One user also commented: “As a Nanami lover, I EXPRESSLY AND EXPRESSLY APPROVE.”
