“Don’t worry, I’m the strongest.”
Gojo Satoru is probably everyone’s favorite sensei from Jujutsu Kaisen (and an overall fan favorite, of course). Introduced as a mysterious white-haired man wearing a blindfold, we pretty much find out at the beginning of the series that he is an incredibly powerful character.
Jujutsu Kaisen is a shōnenmanga series written by Gege Akutami. Serialization began in 2018 and an anime adaptation by MAPPA was released in 2020. Jujutsu Kaisen has risen through the ranks as one of the most popular and well-received new generation series. Fans praise MAPPA for the way they have adapted the series so far, alongside the amazing animation styles.
Gojo Satoru is a teacher at Tokyo Jujutsu High with a rank of special grade jujutsu sorcerer. He is well-known all over the jujutsu world as one of the most powerful sorcerers. He comes from one of the top sorcerer clans, inheriting the Gojo family’s Limitless and Six Eyes technique—which is an incredibly rare feat. The last member of the Gojo family who possessed both inherited techniques existed over four hundred years ago.
Even anime-only fans have already seen how extremely powerful Gojo is, and that isn’t even all of it. Manga readers know the full extent of his power and why he truly deserves the title of “the strongest”. Setting those aside, Gojo’s personality is a completely different discussion. Often acting childish and playful, some of you might be wondering how old Gojo is.
Gojo Satoru was born on December 7, 1989. It is said that his birth altered the balance of the jujutsu world—that already shows how powerful of a human being he is. The beginning of Jujutsu Kaisen is set in 2018, which makes him 28 years old in the current timeline. This applies to both the anime and manga’s current events.
While there is no official announcement for Season 2 just yet, Jujutsu Kaisen fans are currently looking forward to the release of the adaptation of the prequel, Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 0 The Movie, featuring Yūta Okkotsu. If you’re the type who can’t wait to watch the second season, then you can find out where to start reading the manga coming from Season 1 here.
