Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2‘ saw Suguru Geto, one of the four Special Grade Curse Users change his morals regarding jujutsu and in a single night, kill 112 Non-curse users (humans). While some fans claim that he has turned evil, there is more to his decision than meets the eye. 

The anime which is based on the popular manga by Gege Akutami, follows the life of Yuji Itadori, a high school student who becomes involved in the world of Jujutsu after swallowing one of Sukuna’s fingers. Here’s a look at Suguru Geto in the world of Jujutsu Kaisen. 

Suguru Geto: The Special Grade Curse User

Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen sees Suguru Geto pair up with Gojo and Shoko at Jujutsu High as the trio strengthen their skills. They undertake missions under their teacher Masamichi Yaga and everything seems normal until it isn’t.

There were 3 main factors that influenced Suguru Geto’s decision

  1. Star Religious Group
  2. Yuki Tsukumo
  3. The Village Incident

The Star Religious Group

In Episode 4 of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2, Gojo and Suguru retrieve the body of Riko Amanai from one of the Star Religious Group’s Facilities in the city, as they are about to leave, Gojo asks Suguru if they should kill him to which he responds:

“No need to, it is very important for there to be a reason to do so, even for a jujutsu sorcerer”

Later, he questions the motive of jujutsu, which is to protect non-curse users. This contradicts what he saw in the bunker, as the non-curse users were celebrating the death of the Time Plasma Vessel (Riko Amanai).

Yuki Tsukumo – Special Grade Curse User

Yuki when she met Geto told him that she either wanted to eradicate cursed energy from all of humanity or teach everyone how to control it. This made Suguru come up with a third solution: killing all non-sorcerers.

When Yuki asked Suguru if he hated non-sorcerers, he wasn’t able to answer. He replied that he used to think protecting non-sorcerers was right but began doubting if they were worth fighting for.  She advised him to choose between the side of him that’s devoted to being a jujutsu sorcerer and the other side that looks down on non-sorcerers.

The Village Incident

Suguru Geto was sent on a mission shortly after losing one of his juniors, Yu Haibara, who died while protecting non-curse users. When he reached the village where the so-called incident happened, Suguru finds two young girls being mistreated by non-sorcerers for having curse-related abilities.

He makes his decision and decides to kill all the non-curse users (112) and rescue the two girls. Geto tells Gojo that he wants to create a world without non-curse users. Gojo tries to stop him, but hesitates, as he finds it difficult to kill his best friend.

Fans can now stream episodes featuring Suguru Geto in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 on Netflix.
