Satoru Gojo shows off his playful side in a new Jujutsu Kaisen cosplay.
The powerful sorcerer is portrayed by cosplayer known as Venture_Bros on Instagram. The cosplayer perfectly managed to replicate the Jujutsu High teacher’s playful personality, capturing the sorcerer as he takes a selfie and displays his trademark bright blue eyes, which aid in his use of the overpowered Limitless ability. The costume is completed with Gojo’s trademark blindfold and a customized version of the character’s white hair.
More of Venture_Bros’ cosplay can viewed on their Instagram profile. In addition to portraying the popular Jujutsu Kaisen character, they have also portrayed a number of other popular shonen anime heroes, including a suitably flashy take on the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba, as well as one of Shonen Jump‘s other infamously deadly mentors, Kakashi Hatake from Naruto.
Satoru Gojo is one of the more popular characters to emerge from Jujutsu Kaisen, the latest smash hit manga to be published in the pages of Shonen Jump. The sorcerer serves a mentor to the series’ main character, Yuji Itadori, helping him to master the immense amount of Cursed energy coursing through his body after the young man becomes the vessel for the soul of Ryomen Sukuna, a powerful but sadistic sorcerer. Gojo’s laid-back and playful attitude often causes him to not be taken seriously by both his peers and his students, but in reality he is actually the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Much of the story of Jujutsu Kaisen is based around the villains’ attempts to seal him and his reality-shattering powers away so that they can move forward with their plans.
Jujutsu Kaisen was created by Gege Akutami in 2018. The series has quickly become one of Japan’s most popular entertainment properties, with the manga achieving a circulation of more than 60 million copies. An anime adaptation was produced by studio MAPPA (Attack on Titan: The Final Season) which completed its first season in 2021. A second season is scheduled for 2023. The franchise’s first movie, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, premiered in Japan in December to the second best opening weekend in Japanese film history. The movie has since earned 10.4 billion yen (about $90 million USD) and is now the highest grossing Japanese film of 2021.
The first season of the anime can be streamed from Crunchyroll, while the manga is available in English in both print and digital formats from VIZ Media. The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is scheduled to be released in the United States on March 13.
