Jujutsu Kaisen's Gojo Actor Explains the Fighter's Secret Weakness

Jujutsu Kaisen fans have been utterly obsessed with Satoru Gojo ever since the powerful fighter was introduced to the anime and manga series, and the star behind the fighter has opened up about an unseen weakness Gojo has been carrying around this entire time. There's nothing better in an action manga and anime series when an ultra powerful character is highly confident in their abilities and thus keeps a coolheaded demeanor until it all breaks down. This is the case for Gojo, who provides a steady presence for Yuji Itadori and the other students but isn't too open about his own thoughts and feelings.

Gojo is one of the most mysterious characters in the series overall despite how much we get to see him in action throughout its run so far, but it remains to be seen whether or not we'll get a deeper look at the character. Speaking about bringing Gojo to life during an interview with ComicBook.com's Megan Peters earlier this Summer during Crunchyroll Expo, series star (and Gojo voice talent) Kaiji Tang revealed that while Gojo is strong on the outside, he's got a lot of notable weakness as a person.

"I think when you get kind of beneath this veneer of him being all powerful – the super OP character of the show – I think he's like the loneliest person in the show," Tang began. "Which is really surprising, and if you get really deep into the series, there's a reason why... That's been the most charming aspect of his character. It's not in his strengths, Gojo actually has a fairly large number of weaknesses as a person. I think that makes him a far more interesting character than if he were just some guy who was very strong." This deeper understanding for the character comes through bringing the fighter to life, and it's certainly interesting to see how it might influence the rest of the series.

Gojo was a pretty huge part of the anime's debut season and Jujutsu Kaisen 0 feature film, and he'll be one of the many characters reurning in the second season, currently scheduled to release some time next year. But what do you think of this being Gojo's surprising weakness? What would you like to learn about Gojo next? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
