Satoru Gojo is the much-loved protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen and the most talked about anime character of recent years. I’m sure that readers don’t really need to be told about who Gojo Satoru is. Gojo has long been compared to Kakashi Hatakare from Naruto, for their similarities in looks and personalities. 

However, there is a place where Gojo and Kakashi are polar opposites. Where Kakashi is known for his hatred of sweet foods, Gojo is a big fan of them. Although Gojo initially started eating more sugar for his brain power, he later became obsessed with it.  

  • Remember Kento Nanami? He may have been a villain

We know Kento Nanami is one of the most responsible and kind characters in the Jujutsu Kaisen anime series. But did you know that Kento Nanami was not always meant to be this way?

According to the original plan of Gege Akutami, Kento Nanami was originally supposed to be a villain. It is unknown what the role of Nanami’s character would have been if he was a villain, but it is for sure that it would have been really different from the Nanami we know today. 

  • Megumi was actually grieving his loss of his shikigamis

We know that Megumi is known for his unique abilities of his shikigami, but the show itself does not go into great detail into that. However, Megumi goes through a great deal of pain whenever he loses one of his shikigamis. In fact, he grieves for his shikigamis even harder than he would grieve for a loss of a friend, which he also was seen going through in the show. 

  • Not all of Toge’s code words are meaningless

We know Toge and his incredible power that could destroy things if he even spoke anything without thinking. Which is why he almost always talks in foods. But did you know that Toge’s words actually have meaning?

He uses しゃけ (shake), which translates to the word salmon, as an affirmation. Negation is おかか (okaka), which translates to fish flakes. こんぶ (konbu) or kelp as a greeting. However, only these words have meanings, the other words he says are meaningless.

  • Sukuna’s fingers taste like soap…what?

Yes, we know, pretty bizarre. In one of the most visually disgusting scenes of the show where Itadori literally swallowed Sukuna’s fingers, he was explicit that his fingers tasted gross. But in a fan book q&a, creator Akutami said that Sukuna’s fingers taste like soap – which is pretty unsettling and bizarre, to say the least. 

  • Mechamaru’s name is derived from an anime show of Kokichi’s liking

Since Kokichi is unable to move or go out due to his heavenly restriction, Mechamaru works as his proxy. Did you know that Mechamaru is actually named after an anime character of an unknown name that Kokichi enjoys? It’s a nice thing to know about Kokichi, considering that he spends his entire life in agony. 

  • The aftermath of Itadori Eating a Death Painting

The official JJK Fanbook has answered the much-asked questions: what would happen if Itadori ate the Death Painting?

In the Fanbook, it was said that if Itadori ate the Death Painting prior to eating Sukuna’s fingers, then he would be able to override the consciousness of the Cursed Womb, and be able to use its cursed energy. However, if he ate the painting after eating Sukuna’s fingers, then it would simply vanish. 

  • Megumi rarely believes in what is said in news

Megumi is a total sceptic. Although he always keeps up with the latest local news, he rarely believes what the news says. 

An explanation to Megumi’s utter disbelief in news may be due to his Jujutsu sorcerer career, and the news reporters’ inability to capture the full news correctly. 

  • Gojo is a big fan of Digimon

Gojo’ s character just got way cooler than it already was. Did you know Gojo is a fan of the Digimon series?

In the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, Gojo has been seen mentioning Digimon many times. He was a big fan of it in his high school years and also seems to be one now. 

What is also interesting is that some voice actors of Digimon are also in the Jujutsu Kaisen series, namely Yuichi Nakamura (who played Charismon on Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters) and Kaiji Tang (who played Kyotaro Imura in Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna). Pretty cool, right?

  • Each Jujutsu Kaisen characters have their own theme songs

Probably one of the coolest facts you don’t know about Jujutsu Kaisen characters, some of the main characters of Jujutsu Kaisen are known to have their own theme songs! 

Similar to Tite Kubo associating real-world songs with the characters of Bleach, Akutami was inspired and decided to associate some real songs with the characters of Jujutsu Kaisen as well. A few examples of them are given below. 

Yuji Itadori: 9mm Parabellum Bullet – “Heart ni Hi wo Tsukete (Light a Fire in Your Heart)” & Kuchiroro – “Itsuka Dokoka de (Sometime, Somewhere)”

Satoru Gojo: Asian Kung-Fu Generation – “Mada Minu Ashita ni (Into Unseen Tomorrow)” & Avicii – “Shame on Me”

Nobara Kugisaki: Sunny Day Service – “Seishun Kyosokyoku (Rhapsody of Youth)” & Natsuko Nisshoku – “Ano Depaato (That Department Store)”

Megumi Fushiguro: Uchujin – “Hakujitsumu (Daydream)” & Weezer – “Island in the Sun”. 

  • Some of the Jujutsu Kaisen Characters are of mixed ethnicities

Like most anime series, the majority of Jujutsu Kaisen characters are Japanese by race. But did you know that the show has a number of characters from mixed ethnicities as well?

Jujutsu Kaisen has introduced some Characters of mixed races. For example, Kento Nanami is a quarter Danish. His maternal grandfather is Danish, making him one-quarter Danish and three-quarters Japanese. 

Momo Nishimiya, one of the well-known characters of the show, is half American and half Japanese. Her mother is Japanese, while her father is American, making her half Japanese and half American. 

  • Hanami’s words are actually just backward spoken Japanese

If you have seen Hanami in Jujutsu Kaisen, you know that Hanami’s voice is really unusual. But it was revealed by the makers that Hanami’s voice is actually just the reversed audio of the voice actor Atsuko Tanaka speaking Japanese. A pretty crazy addition to our list of facts you don’t know about Jujutsu Kaisen characters indeed.

  • Mai Zenin may be a part of the LGBTQIA+ community

Mai Zenin may not be totally straight. Although the show has not spoken anything about Mai’s sexual orientation, in the manga, it was often mentioned that whenever Mai interacted with other female characters, they looked like a pair of lovers.
