Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 236 Already on the Internet
Spoilers straight ahead
If you decided to read this article after reading the title, you probably know what to expect. However, you can never be too careful. Obviously, the article below covers the latest chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen. It therefore reveals key moments of the plot. If you want to be surprised, it is therefore more than recommended not to read the following lines.
Nowadays, it is possible to follow the progress of our favorite manga week by week. The publishing houses of weekly magazines such as Shônen Jump or Jump have moved to digital with special platforms. They allow reading, with official translation, of the last chapters of works like One Piece or Jujutsu Kaisen. But it is not uncommon for these last chapters to come out before, with an unofficial translation.
It is also the latter which has been mobilizing Internet users for several days. While season 2 of the animated adaptation is preparing to broadcast a key moment concerning the character of Satoru Gojo, the manga also has a twist in the situation for the main character’s teacher. In chapter #235, he appears to overpower the demon king Sukuna. It is even with the phrase “Gojo won” that the chapter ends.
Jujutsu Kaisen 236: reader reaction
A victory that quickly gives way to a nightmare. Chapter No. 236, available with an unofficial translation, illustrates a major twist: Gojo literally cut in two with Sukuna triumphant. This therefore does not fail to make fans react, some considering that the mangaka hastened the end of his work:
Good luck to Gege for progressing the plot now that he killed off the best plot tool he had for JJK with a premature death, ruined the sales of his own manga, and left the 15 yr old kids to defeat 1000 yr old Curse Sukuna with the power of friendship and love. #JJK236 pic.twitter.com/B5qLG4MOWL

Good luck to Gege moving the plot forward now that he prematurely killed off the best tool he had for JJK, ruined the sales of his own manga, and let 15 year olds defeat the 1000 year old curse of Sukuna through the power of friendship and love. #JJK236
Others evoke their hatred towards Gege Akutami for this turn of events, even going so far as to threaten the author with death.
Finally, we note the hope of certain readers. The character being very popular with the community, the latter believes that the author has an idea behind his head and will bring him back. After all, he is not one turn away from the situation.
