Although he is 28 and a teacher, Gojo’s actions in Jujutsu Kaisen show that he is extremely similar to a modern-day genZ.
In the world of manga and anime, Jujutsu Kaisen has gained a huge fan following thanks to its engaging storyline and interesting characters. Among those characters, Gojo Satoru must have stood out the most. Besides being known as a powerful magician Gojo He is also a teacher with a unique teaching style. But whoever it is, it seems that Gojo was built by the author Gege with an extremely genZ image. Let’s take a look at the proofs for that with Game8Z.
That’s in chapter 13 of the manga Jujutsu Kaisen, Gojo takes the main character, Itadori Yuji, to a remote location for a special training session. Fans tacitly predict that Yuji will face the most extreme training regime ever. However, despite fans’ expectations and predictions, the way Gojo trained Yuji was by watching movies.
This is possibly the most childish and strangest practice ever in the shonen world. Looking at other established anime/manga in the shonen world, a main character’s training session always leaves fans in awe of their health and endurance. Take Kimetsu no Yaiba’s Tanjiro as an example. From the early days, he had to climb mountains and avoid traps. He also had to train in a state of extreme hunger. And Tanjiro underwent these exercises when he was not even 20 years old.
However, while watching movies is a strange exercise, it is surprisingly effective. Like what Gojo explained that as a magician, Yuji needs to learn how to control his emotions in using moves. By ‘inviting’ Itadori to watch special titles, Gojo’s aim is to prepare his students for the chaos and challenges he will face in his upcoming journey. .
Besides, Gojo also recognizes the importance of imagination and creativity in real combat situations. That’s why when watching enough movies, Itadori’s mind will develop a broader vision and think beyond what he can do in battle. Not only that, when watching the movie, Yuji’s mind will be enhanced with the ability to analyze complex situations and find the most creative solutions possible.

By using the movies as a training tool, Gojo demonstrates his ability to connect with Itadori on a deeper level. Gojo was able to teach his pupil not only fighting techniques, but also life lessons. This unique approach has cemented Gojo’s status as a fan-favorite character and embodiment of Gen Z. What do meFans think of this teaching in the series? Jujutsu Kaisen?
