Gojo X Geto shippers, seems like you’re not the biggest bunch in the Jujutsu Kaisen fandom. As unhinged as this fandom could get about shipping characters, their level is almost reaching the likes of My Hero Academia fans.

Yes, I’m not joking. According to a source on both Twitter and Reddit, the most popular JJK ship in Japan in 2023 goes to….

Gojo X Yuji.

That’s right, the teacher and the adopted student. Gojo literally adopted Yuji after fighting Sukuna in the 1st episode and brought him to Jujutsu High. Gojo is like a father figure to not only Yuji but to Megumi and Nobara as well.

But to ship Gojo and Yuji and that being the most popular ship is… odd but that’s Japan for you.

Here’s the entire list of JJK’s most popular ships in Japan in the year 2023:

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 25 tankōbon volumes as of December 2023.

Studio MAPPA brought the world of JJK into anime by airing 24 episodes of season 1 from October 2020 to March 2021 and a 2nd season, that premiered in July 2023.

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.
