Intersection of Fandoms: Guiu Goes Viral After Celebrating with a Gojo Hand Sign

Marc Guiu celebrated his goal against Ibiza, which soon became the most talked about topic among anime fans. So why did Guiu scoring a goal become an anime discourse, you wonder? This footballer decided to do something a little Jujutsu Kaisen-themed for his celebration. 

Guiu made a Gojo’s domain hand sign as he scored his goal for Barcelona in their latest match against UD Ibiza.

Guiu’s goal kicked off the team’s rally and their eventual victory. This even helped them earn a spot in the promotional play-off final.

Guiu Single-Handedly Unites the Fandoms!

Guiu’s hand sign celebration united the anime and the sports fans, who were ecstatic about the same thing. While Jujutsu Kaisen fans are raving about Gojo supremacy (side eyes Gege), others are simply revealing that anime has made its debut even in the sports culture.

The fan reactions are everything! Some of the fans went as far as to make edits of Guiu as Gojo saying, “Nah, I’d win,” and it fits the situation. Guiu brought his team victory and felt as reliable as Gojo when he delivered the line.

Some of the fans were hilarious and were concerned for Guiu, and they wondered if he read the manga and knew the ultimate fate of Satoru.

And some fans were just *shooketh*

Is Guiu an anime fan?

There isn’t a question! Guiu is an anime fan. Imagine celebrating one of your biggest goals with an ode to Gojo. If he isn’t a hard-core otaku, he at least enjoys his mainstream shows, and Jujutsu Kaisen is one of them.

For now, there isn’t a way to find out otaku-ness. Either way, it’s Gojo’s world, and we just live in it!
