JJK 236 Spoilers & Leaks: Reasons why Gojo might still be Alive


Last week, Jujutsu Kaisen fans breathed a sigh of relief, thinking that Gojo Satoru had won the fight against Sukuna. It seemed like everything was going well in the JJK world, but our happiness was short-lived. When spoilers for Chapter 236 dropped, they hit us like a punch in the gut.

We all knew that Sukuna might make a comeback in this chapter, but what blindsided us was the possibility that Gojo might be dead. Gege Akutami threw this curveball at us, and it has led to a frenzy of theories about whether Gojo’s really gone for good. While it’s unlikely, it’s not impossible.

It’s been a lot to process but here is a detailed summary of Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236 Spoilers, as well as some theories on whether he might come back after all.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236 Spoilers: Gojo in the afterlife

The chapter starts with Gojo and Geto having a rather odd conversation in the afterlife. Gojo seems taken aback at being there, muttering, “this is awful,” to which Geto playfully scolds him for being rude.

Gojo thinks about something he once told his students. He told them that when you die, you are all alone. He hopes this chat is just his imagination, trying to avoid admitting he might be wrong.

  • Geto isn’t too bothered and asks, “who cares?” Gojo insists that it matters. He mentions something about his father but doesn’t finish the thought. “It’s alright,” he sighs. “I asked Shoko to handle it.”

  • When Geto asks, Gojo admits that Sukuna was stronger than him even though he wasn’t using his full power. He says his chances of winning were slim even if Sukuna didn’t have Megumi’s Cursed Technique. Geto’s surprised by Gojo’s honesty, and says it’s a wonder Sukuna got him to admit this.
  • 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. If anything, he says he feels sorry for Sukuna, thinking he didn’t get to show his full strength in their fight.

Geto, at first jealous, respects Gojo’s feelings. Gojo even wishes Geto could have been there to motivate him with a pat on the back, and it brings a tear to Geto’s eye.

Is afterlife a choice? What did Gojo choose?

Turns out, Gojo and Geto aren’t alone. Nanami and Haibara join in, and they add a bit of humor. Nanami recalls a funny conversation where they joked about leaving everything to Gojo and called him a “pervert” for using sorcery for personal pleasure.

Gojo says he is glad he didn’t die of old age or sickness but by the hands of someone stronger. Nanami sympathizes, but also tells him to stop talking like a samurai general. Haibara laughs, saying he noticed it too but didn’t want to point it out.

  • Gojo asks about Nanami’s last moments, and Nanami explains that he had once asked Mei san about it. She told him there were two things he could do: Move North, if you are looking for a new side of yourself or move South, if you want to stay who you are. He tells them that he chose South without a moment’s hesitation, and he doesn’t regret it.
  • We’re guessing that moving North here means choosing to be reincarnated and choosing south means afterlife, but we can’t be entirely sure.

Gojo smiles and bids everyone goodbye. The scene is a bit odd, given that if Gojo is dead, he should be saying farewell to his students. Is he rejecting afterlife? Will he come back?

Cut to reality, and Gojo’s body lies lifeless on the ground.

  • Sukuna steps in to explain Mahoraga’s powers. Mahoraga adapts to attacks over time, becoming more resistant. Sukuna always meant for Mahoraga to adapt and pierce Gojo’s Infinity.
  • Once Mahoraga adapted, it changed its Cursed Energy output to neutralize Infinity. When Mahoraga attacked, it was different from Sukuna’s slash. Mahoraga cut the very world, including space-time. Infinity doesn’t matter if you can cut the entire world.

Still, Sukuna seems impressed. “Good job, Gojo Satoru. I will never forget you.”

The chapter ends as Kashimo steps in to take Gojo’s place in the fight. But, between us, that’s a lost fight. Sukuna has proven that he is too strong for all of them, and it’s going to be interesting to see how things unfold from here.

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 move forward. Without it, characters like Yuji, Yuta, and Megumi wouldn’t have the chance to step up and take the lead. But the way Gojo’s exit was handled has left us wondering if there’s more to the story.

  • First off, Gojo doesn’t say goodbye to his students in the afterlife, which is unusual. Instead, he bids farewell to others he meets there. This small detail raises some questions. Could it mean something different than what we think?
  • There’s also the matter of the flowers around Gojo in the afterlife. They’re lotuses, which are symbols of rebirth and transformation. This makes us wonder if Gojo’s journey is truly over, or if he might come back in some new way.

  • Nanami’s talk about “North” and “South” adds another layer of mystery. He says the choice between them is personal. Could this hint at Gojo finding a way to heal himself? Remember, he’s shown the ability to do it before, like in his fight with Toji. But this might come at a big cost, maybe even his Six Eyes, the symbol of his immense power.

If “North” means starting fresh and Gojo has to give up being the strongest sorcerer to survive, it fits with the theme of rebirth. Gojo has always carried the weight of being the most powerful, so this could be a chance for him to live without that burden and answer Geto’s question: “Are you strong because you’re Gojo Satoru, or are you Gojo Satoru because you’re strong?”

Sure, this might mean Gojo won’t be in the middle of the action as much, but it could be the perfect opportunity for him to guide Yuji when he faces Sukuna. Without the title of the most powerful sorcerer, Gojo can offer wisdom and a different perspective.

These theories aren’t set in stone, but they show the exciting possibilities that Gege Akutami has set up in Chapter 236. Gojo Satoru’s “death” has left fans with a lot to ponder, and we can’t wait to see where the story goes from here. One thing’s for sure: Gojo’s legacy will live on, no matter what path he takes.
