How Is Jujutsu Kaisen’s Satoru Gojo Different in the Manga?

In Jujutsu Kaisen, Satoru Gojo is known to be one of the most powerful sorcerers. He is so confident in his abilities that he considers himself as the best and can defeat powerful curses like Sukuna without issues. He is also one of the most loved characters because of his interesting and unique personality, not to mention his impressive cursed techniques.

But of course, what anime fans know about Satoru Gojo might not be entirely who he is. There are still some parts in the manga that were not adapted into the anime that can further elaborate Gojo’s personality. With this, here are some ways Gojo is different in the manga than in the anime.

In the anime, fans know that Gojo is part of an elite group because of his abilities. Unfortunately, the anime did not elaborate on how elite that group of sorcerers is. The manga explained that there are only 5 sorcerers who are considered as special grade with one murdered after his power was recognized by the other members.


Another difference is that the anime did not show the limit of Gojo’s Unlimited Void Domain Expansion. Only manga readers know the depth of the said technique. We can’t spoil it for now but hopefully, the anime will reveal this soon.

The anime also did not explain Gojo’s philosophy. We still don’t know if the anime will showcase Gojo’s Past Arc or will it just show a glimpse in the upcoming season, but the manga thoroughly explained that Gojo wanted a world where his peers are with him. He has this belief that people become strong together even if he can handle everything by himself already.

Manga readers already know Gojo’s dark side, and we are not just referring to him whenever he was threatening the Tokyo Jutsu High higher-ups. What anime fans have seen during the Cursed Womb arc is nothing to what Gojo really is. The manga revealed a darker side of him during his fight against Toji. Fans might actually be surprised when they see it.

Season one of Jujutsu Kaisen did not cover a lot of arcs to fully give fans details about Satoru Gojo and other characters of the series. Those who wish to know more about their loved characters can read the manga or wait for the upcoming seasons.
