Question: Tell me the background about the creation of Satoru Gojou. Answer: I wanted to create a very powerful character, but also very easy to relate to and understand. Question: What do you get attached to most when you draw Gojou? Answer: From the Halfway through the work, I have tried to draw Gojou more and more attractive. Question: As a teacher, does Gojou teach any other subject besides Jujutsu? Answer: He is able to do so to some extent, but it seems that he does not have a license to teach. or work as a teacher. But for general education it could be an assistant principal. Question: How many hours does Gojou sleep a day? Answer: It seems like only a very short period. Question: Gojou doesn't seem to realize his high attractiveness, don't you want one? Girlfriend? Answer: I can't imagine Gojou being a faithful couple. Question: Gojou usually has his eyes covered, but can he see well? Answer: Generally speaking, “the six eyes” is a sense that allows you to see energy damn with extreme detail. Even if he is blindfolded, he can distinguish this energy. He can even recognize the flow of cursed energy in buildings that don't even have it. On the other hand, if he doesn't use the blindfold, even despite using the Unlimited Curse Technique to keep his brain calm, he tends to get tired. If ordinary people wore Gojou's sunglasses, they would see nothing but total darkness. Question: Why is Gojou addressing his students with his first name? Answer: He doesn't care about details. I personally care what happens if I call someone by his first name, but Gojou has no such considerations.
