Will Satoru Gojo ever be unsealed? His Fate Depends on an Angel!  

It’s been 1065 days since Gojo was sealed. Ever since chapter 91, fans have been debating when Gojo will be unsealed from the Prison Realm – or whether he’ll be unsealed at all.

After the Shibuya Incident, Gojo was deemed an accomplice and was permanently exiled from the jujutsu world. Removing his seal is now a criminal act, and anyone attempting to do so will be considered a traitor.

In chapter 145, Master Tengen revealed that a 1000-year-old sorcerer called Angel can negate all cursed techniques and open the back of the Prison Realm to free Gojo. In the current arc, the jujutsu students have finally found Angel – but there’s a catch.

SPOILERS AHEAD! This page contains spoilers from Jujutsu Kaisen .

Satoru Gojo will be unsealed if Angel breaks the seal on the Prison Realm. They will do this only if Yuji and the rest will help kill the incarnated player called The Fallen. In chapter 200, Yuji finds out that The Fallen is none other than Sukuna, who is inside of him.

Will Angel unseal Gojo?

Whether Angel actually unseals Gojo from the Prison Realm depends on whether they are a foe or an ally, and what their actual motivation is.

1. Angel x Sukuna

Sukuna is The Angel’s sworn enemy, who they call as “The Fallen” or “The Disgraced One”.

They will help Yuji, but not before he and his friends help them find the particular awakened player, called Fallen. Angel seems to have a lofty reasoning to kill incarnated players but their enmity with Sukuna goes way back.

Angel seems the be a sorcerer from the Golden Age of Jujutsu, just like Sukuna. Sukuna was the one of the most powerful sorcerers of his time, and it might be that Angel was his nemesis.

The codenames The Angel and The Fallen also spin obvious parallels. Angel can neutralize any cursed technique and there is no one who has perfected the use of cursed techniques other than Sukuna.

Angel and Sukuna seem also to be similar to Gojo and Geto, and Kenjaku possessing Geto’s body with Gojo sealed away, just adds to the premise.

There’s surely an Angel vs. Sukuna coming up, and I can’t wait to see how Yuji and Hana get caught up in it.

2. Angel Wants to Play God

In chapter 199, Angel says that their goal is to purge all incarnated players because most of them end up killing their vessel’s consciousness, either intentionally or non-intentionally.

Although Angel seems to be an awakened sorcerer as well, they say that they have decided to coexist with Hana Kurusu because they believe that destroying a person’s consciousness is not something that should be happening. They say that this goes against the laws of “god”.

Right now, Angel seems kind of shady to me. They said that they wanted to kill all the incarnated sorcerers because they destroy the consciousness of their vessels and because this goes against god’s will.

But they go on to clarify that by god, they mean, the name given to their creed, which means they are kind of crediting themselves the authority of God.

This also implies that they want to pass judgement on Sukuna – maybe they have unfinished business and with incarnated sorcerers, Angel has just found the perfect excuse that suits their principles.

3. Angel Doesn’t Know Sukuna is a Cursed Spirit

Angel and Hana left Tokyo Colony No. 2 because they were looking for incarnated players to purge and there were more cursed spirits in that colony than players.

Angel can nullify cursed techniques including all seals and barrier techniques which allows them to enter and exit the colonies in the Culling Game at will.

Angel is obviously unaware of the fact that Sukuna is a cursed spirit and not an awakened sorcerer. For all we know Angel themselves might be a cursed spirit. After all, “angels” are often the ones with a darker side than established “demons”.

So, there are 2 things that might stop Angel from wanting to kill Sukuna: 1) Finding out that Sukuna is a cursed spirit, and 2) That Sukuna resides within Yuji.

According to what they themselves said, killing a vessel went against god’s law. But if Angel’s hatred for Sukuna is greater than their self-imposed law, then nothing will stop them from killing Sukuna, whether or not Yuji is caught in the fire.

Further, Angel seems to make it clear that the only reason they even saved Megumi was because of Hana’s crush on him. This proves that the only person Angel cares about is Hana.

On the opposite spectrum, Sukuna would love to see Yuji dead. Sukuna doesn’t care about anyone. Although – Sukuna does want Megumi alive for some ulterior motive, and now with Angel seeking Sukuna’s death, Megumi might be just the character needed to add more intrigue.

4. Angel Might Not Want Gojo Free

Another thing to consider here is, Angel does not yet know who it is that Megumi and Yuji want to save. All they know is that they are intended to break the seal on the Special Grade Cursed Object, Prison Realm. Angel might not want Gojo to be free at all.

There are theories that state that Angel might actually be related to the Gojo clan, or to Sugawara, who was one of the Big 3 Vengeful Spirits.

But what this means for Angel and Gojo, we do not know.

5. Angel Might Not Want to go Against the Law

Angel might be a strict follower of law and order and even though they might not have anything to fear from the jujutsu higher-ups, they might not be too inclined to go against them either.

Now that attempting to unseal Gojo is a punishable offense, once Angel finds out that the person that Yuji and Megumi want to save is Gojo, they might not agree.

Are there other ways to unseal Gojo apart from Angel?

Master Tengen stated that there are two cursed tools that can forcefully open the back of the Prison Realm in which Kenjaku has sealed Gojo. They are: the Inverted Spear of Heaven, and the Black Rope.

Unfortunately, both these items are currently lost – Gojo himself saw to it that they could never be found.

Yuta and Miguel searched for the Black Rope in Africa but could not find it. As for the Spear, the last time it was used was by Toji Fushiguro.

What I could see happening is Megumi, being Toji’s son, somehow procuring the Spear at the final moment. This would help especially in the scenario that Angel turns out to be more of a raving maniac than Sukuna, and they have to turn their goals to ending them.

Angel obviously would not unseal Gojo in this case, and Megumi would find the Spear to free Gojo at the last minute.

When will Gojo be unsealed?

Gojo will be unsealed at the climax of the battle, where he will be the only one who can defeat Kenjaku.

Gojo was eliminated from the storyline because he was quite simply, overpowered. All the in-series characters seem to know that as well. They know that once Gojo is out, the odds will be in their favor again, and they can easily win.

Further, according to Master Tengen, Kenjaku was defeated by two Six Eyes users in the past. The set-up for Six Eyed Gojo returning to defeat Kenjaku the third time, who is in the body of his best friend, is obvious.

Currently, Kenjaku is battling it out with the Special Grade sorcerer, Yuki Tsukumo, who revealed her Star Rage cursed technique in chapter 205.

But it does seem like Kenjaku is going to win against her.

I do think it makes sense for Gojo to defeat Kenjaku, but not before we see Yuji, Megumi, and Yuta’s characters develop.

Additionally, what with Kenjaku’s unpredictable and devious plans, Gojo actually might need the help of his students to defeat him.

But however it turns out, don’t hold your breath to see Gojo back in action. There is a lot to be played out with Angel/Kurusu, Tsukumu, Tengen, and Kenjaku right now in the story.

Also, Yuji is back in the narrative and I believe it’s Yuji/Sukuna and Megumi’s time to shine under the limelight before Gojo reappears and steals the show.
