Gojo Satoru’s theme songs
I’ll introduce two theme songs for Gojo Satoru, selected by the author of Jujutsu Kaisen himself. Both songs are really cool and you should focus on the lyrics too!
Shame on Me
The first song is “Shame on Me” by Avicci.
An ardent break up song and it’s obvious that the lyric implies what happened between Gojo and Geto Suguru.
I’m baptized and born again
= Gojo is once dead by Fushiguro Toji and then revived with Hanten Jutsushiki (reverse cursed technique).
You can go to hell with your fucked up friends
= Geto Suguru is taking action with cursed spirits.
I coud not live without you
= Geto was Gojo’s only best friend.
I’ll get my kicks without you
= It’s like Gojo. He decided to what to do without Geto.
I love Gojo Satoru because of his bad-ish mood and I want him to be a crazy bad boy. This song is exactly bad-ish and matches him really well!
Mada Minu Ashita ni
The second song is “Mada Minu Ashita ni (for unseen tomorrow)” by a Japanese artist, Asian Kung-Fu Generation.
The lyric is a bit abstract, but if I summarize it, it’s like this:
The world is wide and I feel alone. What I kept doing so far and even sensational news will be blown away and they may be all small things with no meanings. But I want to call unseen tomorrow “hope” no matter how sad the future waiting for us is.
To put very simply, it’s a song of finding hope in a lonely and pointless world.
Who’s lonely, and why? What’s the world? What’s the sad future?
The lyric of this song can be interpreted in various ways. If I understand it straight, it’s Gojo who feel lonely because Geto went away. He is facing the sad future of fighting his ex-friend, but trying to grab another hope and found it in his students.
The ending of the story is already decided according to the author. I hope it will be a happy one!
