Shonen Jump’s Official YouTube channel uploaded a new music video for Jujutsu Kaisen manga on Mar 24, 2024, commemorating the release of Volume 26, which will hit Japanese and overseas bookstores on April 4.

The MV is titled “The Strongest Sorcerer of Modern Time” and features the one and only Satoru FREAKIN’ Gojo as they recap his unsealing and preparation for his fight against Ryomen Sukuna. Volume 26 covers chapters 228–236, basically from Gojo’s unsealing, the entire Gojo vs Sukuna battle up until Gojo’s death.

Of course the thumbnail is the “Nah, I’d win” panel, which has been meme’d to oblivion.

Since he’s dead, is he still the strongest modern sorcerer? Or has plot-armor incarnate Sukuna has stolen that title as well?…

About Jujutsu Kaisen:

Jujutsu Kaisen is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Gege Akutami.

It has been serialized in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump since March 2018, with its chapters collected and published in 26 tankōbon volumes as of April 2024.

Studio MAPPA brought the world of JJK into anime by airing 24 episodes of season 1 from October 2020 to March 2021 and a second season that premiered in July 2023. A sequel covering the “Culling Game” arc has been announced.

Crunchyroll describes the overall plot of Jujutsu Kaisen as:

Yuji Itadori is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life.

One day, to save a classmate who has been attacked by curses, he eats the finger of Ryomen Sukuna, taking the curse into his own soul.

From then on, he shares one body with Ryomen Sukuna.

Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is admitted to Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights the curses… and thus begins the heroic tale of a boy who became a curse to exorcise a curse, a life from which he could never turn back.
