The Mystery Behind Satoru Gojo’s Blindfold in Jujutsu Kaisen: Revealed

Posted on

Jujutsu Kaisen’s popularity skyrocketed in 2020, and Satoru Gojo became one of the most popular anime characters during the pandemic. Satoru possesses many qualities that make him interesting, including his unique character design, behavior, and overpowered skillset. Despite being a supportive character, he is more popular than the protagonist, Yuji Itadori. However, there is one aspect of his character that remains shrouded in mystery, his blindfold.

Satoru is often seen hiding his eyes behind a blindfold or black sunglasses, leaving fans wondering how he can see. In Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, set to release in summer 2021, fans hope to learn more about Satoru’s past, but the mystery of his blindfold still remains. To understand why Satoru wears a blindfold, fans must dive deep into his character and explore every available clue or read through various fan communities. Thankfully, Jujutsu Kaisen’s creator, Gege Akutami, has provided an explanation for Satoru’s blindfold in the official fan book.

Gege explained that Satoru’s unique perception of cursed energy through his rare six eyes (Rikugan) allowed him to see further details associated with cursed energy, even appearing as a high-resolution thermograph when he wears his blindfold. This heightened perception of energy, however, came with a tradeoff. If he did not wear his blindfold, he’d quickly become overwhelmed and tired, despite utilizing reversed curse techniques to keep his mind fresh.

Rikugan has been passed down in Satoru’s family for over 400 years, and he is the only one to inherit the ability to manipulate it to this extent, along with the Mukagen technique. Rikugan provides its user with an expanded perception and a great deal of processing power, allowing for the manipulation of the inherent techniques. This made Satoru an overpowered character in the Jujutsu Kaisen series.

By wearing his blindfold or black sunglasses, Satoru can mitigate the overwhelming power of Rikugan and associated techniques. Meanwhile, he can still sense everything around him because his perception feels like thermography. Although Satoru’s reliance on constantly using his abilities to maintain his sight may cause him to tire quickly, it cannot be considered a weakness. As of now, Satoru’s only known defeat came from the cursed weapon, Ten Shadows Divine Commandments, and Tali Hitam’s power, which was not enough to defeat him completely.

Currently, in the manga and soon, in the anime series, Satoru is trapped in the Prison Realm, adding more mystery to his character. He is an essential character in the series, and hopes remain for his return, but his imprisonment has yet to be rectified.

In conclusion, Satoru Gojo, with his mysterious blindfold, is a character with a unique and complex ability. His Rikugan ability and associated techniques make him an overpowered character, and his blindfold allows him to balance the overwhelming power. Fans will likely continue to speculate on Satoru’s character until further details are released in the Jujutsu Kaisen series.
