Gojo Satoru is one of the main characters in Jujutsu Kaisen, and although he is not the anime’s main protagonist, he is the most popular character by a significant margin!
Ever since his appearance in the show’s first episode, he managed to grab the viewer’s attention. And by the time we got to see him in action, showing off his fighting prowess and his mastery over his Jujutsu abilities, fans were head over heels for him. So, it’s only natural that you’d want to know more about this larger-than-life character, and the biggest question you might have would be precisely how old is Gojo Satoru?
If you don’t want to read the entire article where I break down his age at different arcs of the story and talk about his age during the anime and the movie, then here’s a short version for you.
Gojo Satoru is 28 years old at the moment in Jujutsu Kaisen’s timeline. If you are a manga reader, you know that he’s right now out of action, but there’s no way he won’t reappear because he is a character that brings in the hype and makes his presence felt whenever he appears on screen!
Now that you know Gojo Satoru’s age, it’s time to dive deeper and see how old he was during various events in the story and when his birthday is!
Note: I will try to keep the spoilers to a minimum, but there might still be some events that haven’t yet happened in the anime but have happened in the manga. So, please continue reading only if you are okay with it!
When is Gojo Satoru’s Birthday?
Gojo Satoru’s birthday is December 7, 1989. This means that he is older than most people reading this article and is also older than me.
Unlike many popular anime characters, Gojo Satoru is an adult, not a teenager. Even though he is older than most of your favorite characters, he still reigns supreme in everyone’s favorite lists!
So, has the author of Jujutsu Kaisen, Gege Akutami, confirmed Gojo Satoru’s birthday? And is the above date his actual birthday?
The answer is yes, it is canon. The birth date of Gojo Satoru was first revealed in Jujutsu Kaisen manga chapter 96. It was later confirmed in Jujutsu Kaisen Official Fanbook, released on March 4, 2021, which contained exclusive information about the series along with character profiles.
How Old is Gojo Satoru in Jujutsu Kaisen?
At the moment, Gojo Satoru is 28 years old, as I revealed at the beginning of the article. That was his age when our favorite sensei made his very first appearance in the series.
Even though a lot of time has passed since the first chapter of the manga series and the first episode of the anime series was released, not much time has passed inside Jujutsu Kaisen’s universe. So, even though Gojo was 28 years old at the beginning of the series, he is still the same age.
And now that he is no longer in action, i.e., because he is sealed inside the Prison Realm, I would assume that he won’t age as long as he is imprisoned. That’s only an assumption because we don’t know how the Prison Realm works.
But, he did play a supporting role in the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie, which was set before the events of the anime’s first season. So, how old was Gojo Satoru at that time?
Although it’s not outright stated how old Gojo was during the movie, we can make some calculations as we know when the movie was set.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 was set in 2016 and 2017. So, if we go by the year 2017, then Gojo Satoru’s age at that time was 28 years old.
You might wonder, how is Gojo Satoru still 28 years old when he was the same age in the prequel movie? The answer is simple. The events in Jujutsu Kaisen take place in 2018, and if we look at Gojo’s birthday, which comes in December, we can understand why he’s the same age. He still hasn’t celebrated his 29th birthday!
