Manga is a genre where plot twists come as standard. Few could have predicted the hairpin turn Gege Akutami took Jujutsu Kaisen in with the most recent chapters. Fans who have closely followed Satoru’s journey will find Chapter 236 a heart-wrenching experience. This article takes a deeper look at the controversial chapter.
The Deception of Chapter 235: The Illusion Of Victory
Chapter 235 of Jujutsu Kaisen creates a triumphant atmosphere. The narrative was a success, and readers celebrated Gojo’s victory over Sukuna. Gojo had always been known for his strategic dominance and battle prowess. The next chapter was a story shockwave.
Chapter 236 – A Grim Reunion, or a Flashback to the Past?
The beginning of Chapter 236 has a beautiful ambiguity. Gojo’s conversation with Geto at first seems to be a trip down memory lane. The reader is further convinced by their conversation which, while nostalgic, feels familiar. As their conversation progresses, it becomes clear that this is not a simple reminiscence. Gojo’s open admission of mortality and his contentment with facing death by a worthy adversary raises suspicions. It becomes apparent that this is not a memory but an interaction with the afterlife.
Gojo’s shocking demise: The visual impact
When the reader sees Gojo’s dismembered body, the suspense is broken. The images are stark, particularly when compared to Sukuna’s triumphant stance. This outcome was almost unfathomable for an omnipotent character like Gojo. The end of Gojo, especially at the hands Sukuna’s, is a challenge to the narrative built around his invincibility.
A Ray of Hope – Could Gojo Return to the Scene?
Fans are full of speculation. Gojo’s possible return isn’t completely off the table, given the nature of manga and the numerous resurrections and revivals that we’ve seen in other series. Instead of being definitive, the afterlife interaction could be a device to hint at a bigger play. This hope is boosted by Gojo’s survival in the previous chapters despite overwhelming odds.
The Unpredictable Path of Jujutsu Kaisen
Gege Akutami reminds readers once more of the unpredictable nature Jujutsu Kaisen. Gojo’s presumed demise is a testament to how the narrative continues to evolve and keep fans on their toes. Even though debates about the return of the sorcerer continue, one thing is certain: Jujutsu Kaisen will continue to fascinate its audience in each chapter. The series promises to deliver more surprises, challenges and unmatched storytelling as readers wait for the drama to unfold.
