However, the latest revelation from the JJK shipping fandom in Japan has taken fans by surprise, pushing the boundaries of conventional pairings.

Yes, you read that right – the teacher and the adopted student have taken the fandom by storm, leaving other pairings in their wake. With a staggering 41,553 votes, the Gojo X Yuji ship has dominated the rankings, surpassing even the widely supported Gojo X Geto pairing.

For those unfamiliar with the dynamics, Gojo Satoru, the enigmatic and powerful jujutsu sorcerer, took on the role of a father figure for Yuji Itadori after a fateful encounter with the malevolent curse Sukuna. Adopting Yuji and bringing him to Jujutsu High, Gojo’s mentorship extended not only to Yuji but also to other students like Megumi and Nobara.

The choice to ship Gojo and Yuji may seem odd to some, but as the saying goes, “that’s Japan for you.” The JJK shipping fandom has always been known for its unpredictable preferences, and this latest revelation only adds to the list of unexpected pairings.
