Will Kashimo surpass Gojo in Jujutsu Kaisen manga

Jujutsu Kaisen manga has recently risen to immense popularity in the recent times. The death of Gojo Satoru and the incoming of Kashimo in the battle scene has been crucial factor for the rise of popularity.

One of the most popular theories that has been circulating across the fandom is that Kashimo can surpass Gojo in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga. In this article, we will try to answer the most prominent question regarding the manga – “Will Kashimo surpass Gojo” and at the same time make an attempt to analyze both of these characters.

Is Hajime Kashimo the successor of Satoru Gojo in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga?

Hajime Kashimo in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 237 has been shown as a formidable opponent of Sukuna. With his Mythic Beast Amber, he has literally transformed into an ethereal being and has merged himself with an elemental form of energy. His control over magnetism and electricity has been deal breakers for even Sukuna, and he has posed a substantial threat to the King of Curses, even pushing him to undergo his transformation process.

Kashimo’s positioning in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 237 has been a strategic move and it has marked a crucial point in the narrative. Not only does this deliberate positioning point towards an overarching approach to the plot, but it also places Kashimo as a successor of Gojo on the battlefield.

The intervention of Kashimo into the battlefield can also be seen as a move to establish the medieval order of the Jujutsu Sorcerers and to reassert the fact that Gojo Satoru was indeed not the strongest in the battle to face Sukuna.

Is Kashimo strong enough to surpass Gojo Satoru in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 237?

JJK 237 suggests that Kashimo is a formidable opponent against Sukuna. His Cursed Technique Genjuu Kohaku is indeed a threat to Sukuna’s tactics. However, this new contender is yet to understand the likes and nature of Sukuna, and even though he has been chasing the King of Curses for so long now, his willingness to die for the cause doesn’t actually justify his intent or his strength.

  • Hajime is a strong sorcerer without a doubt, but that doesn’t validate his superiority over Gojo.
  • Both of the sorcerers operated in different ages and eras, and their conditions and demands were differently met according to the age that they served.

Moreover, Gojo was defeated under different circumstances and he had to face two opponents at the same time, at times even more. However, Kashimo is spared from Megumi’s Ten Shadows and he only has Sukuna to go up against, making the battle an entirely different one from the Gojo vs. Sukuna battle. Therefore, the Kashimo vs Sukuna battle goes on without any clear indication of the former surpassing Gojo anytime soon or in any sense.

Can Kashimo defeat Sukuna in Jujutsu Kaisen manga?

Kashimo has already surpassed his physical form and has merged into an ethereal and supernatural being, with the ability to conduct, control, and command electricity in all of its forms. This gives him an upper hand, given that his speed of attacks and his reflexes have heightened considerably in the latest understanding of his CT.

  • Kashimo also holds a long-standing desire to battle Sukuna, and unlike the one against Gojo which was a fight to establish superiority, Sukuna is going to fight Kashimo without a clear objective in his mind.
  • This gives Kashimo an upper hand to be driven by his emotional side and actually come up with a strategy to take down the King of Curses while his guard is down.

But, in all honesty, if Sukuna completes his transformation and manages to get rid of his physical body, Hajime doesn’t stand a chance against the ancient King of Curses. That would give Sukuna the power to act in his purest form and would considerably, and even easily so, overpower Kashimo in battle.


The idea of Kashimo surpassing Gojo might be an unsuitable fit for the fans to accept. But, in all of the discussions that have been going on regarding the future of the series, this stands out as a unique and consistent one. It will be interesting to see how the Jujutsu Kaisen manga shapes the upcoming discourse through the use of a narrative that has so much to do with death and loss already.
