Do I have thoughts? Well, thinking is hard but I will try my best. There's quite a lot of symbolism I've noticed revolving around the box. There are a lot of people who asked why specifically it's a six-sided die with actual eyeballs attached to it. The first and most obvious, the six-sides are a symbol for Gojo possessing the six eyes. As for why it's a die, this is just a guess but. Once Kamo Sr. threw the die, everything was out of his hands and the world already had changed. When the box captures him, it specifically has one eye open stapled open. This once again could be a symbol for Gojo having the six eyes, even if he wears a blindfold he can still see, his eyes are in a way always open. However, the eye is crying tears of blood, it's being damaged, and Gojo has similiar blood on one side of his face. Gojo's been associated with one eye before. He's often depicted with one eye open, and one eye closed. Especially in pivotal moments such as when he comes back from near death in the fight against Toji. Gojo is typically depicted as someone all-seeing, always able to preceive everything around him, so him losnig an eye is a serious loss.
39;s immense cursed energy.
When Gojo is eaten by the boss, he's also reflected in the pupil in a way that completely destroys his face, he's depicted with the pupil being a hole in his face. This could symbolize many things, the destruction of is identity, that he might come out of the box unrecognizable. There are two more pieces of evidence, but these aren't my finds they've been pointed out by the fandom in general. In the opening for season two of Jujutsu Kaisen, there's a one eyed cat depicted, missing the same eye that Gojo is often depicted as being without. And Gojo is similiarly shown with the light shining over only one of his eyes. Geto said that the "processing" that took time with the box was because of Gojo's immense cursed energy. If the Six-Eyes is definitely part of his technique, maybe part of the processing is taking one of those eyes out? There's also the mythological parallel. Norse mythology has been referenced before in Mei Mei's character, who is able to see through the eyes of ravens, like Odin who sent the two ravens Hugin and Munin around as his messengers.
His given name is, in my humble opinion, one of the funniest words in the Japanese language.
Mei Mei is someone who Gojo has paid off with money to be an ally, and if she's the raven then logically he's odin. Odin's self-sacrifice - He sacrificed his eye in Mimir's well and he threw himself on his spear Gungnir in a kind of symbolic, ritual suicide. He then hanged himself in Yggdrasil, the tree of life, for nine days and nine nights in order to gain knowledge of other worlds and be able to understand the runes. This story has several things in common with Gojo's current situation. He is a character who seeks wisdom, as the end result of budhism is "enlightenment", and Gojo himself because of his six eyes is an enlightened character and associated with the concept. His given name is, in my humble opinion, one of the funniest words in the Japanese language. Satoru was originally the Buddhist verb for attaining enlightenment. It means to get rid of all your doubts and all your polluting thoughts (greed, hatred, delusion, etc.), and grasp an eternal truth greater than the cycle of reincarnation we live and die in. Nowadays the word still very much retains its original Buddhist meanings, but more commonly used outside of Buddhist contexts, as the verb for having a huge epiphany in a silly or dramatic context. When you remember you left meat off the fridge and realize it'll get bad before you get back home, you use satoru for that. The same way that Odin sacrificed himself to hang himself on the tree of yanggdrasil, Gojo descendsed to the bottom of the subways all alone to sacrifice himself in the fight against the special grade curses. He also fought against the tree. Gojo being able to see into the infinity is also something equivalent to knowledge of the nine realms that no one else has.
And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious.
Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.
She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.
When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.
When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.
39;s happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with.
That led to the glasses guy to take drugs to have a revenge against the Hummingbird Crew. Shelly took the lead until he passes the baton to June. As the race ended, she tried to kiss Jay in his sleep but he moved and she wasn't able to do so. She also took the test with Minu and Dom since, in a sense, she is still a student at Sunny High. When Mia was modeling, a bunch of girls kept on talking about her, gossiping about Mia like dating an old guy or having a sugar daddy to be able to model. Shelly obviously tried to help her. Yuna and Shelly later on went to Mia's house in hopes that they could get her to come to school. On the way riding a bus, a guy came up on her behind and was hitting on her, she shut him down while cursing, very contrasting of her appearance. When Yuna, Mia and Shelly were talking at the park near Mia's house, Shelly started saying something harsh to Mia, although it is a way to actually let Mia see what's happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with. Yuna reprimanded Shelly, saying she was too harsh and Mia broke down but then was silent at what Shelly said. After that talk, the three of them came at Heri's bike shop so that Mia can say thank you.
After that, she was asked by Minu, Dom and Jay to accompany Mia because she will be more comfortable knowing Shelly was around. She said that she did stay because she was told to but in truth, she came because she is worried, when Mia fought back with her bullies and was slapped, Yuna and Shelly came to her rescue. Shelly even tripped the girl who slapped Mia. And told Yuna and her that it seems like there's nothing to be worried about anymore. Which made Mia smile. Nick (Grandfather) - it is seen that her grandfather is very loving and protective of her. He was ecstatic when she called to say that she was moving to Korea. When she went to her first day of school at Sunny High he was seen outside her classroom being protective and calling her 'his sweet Shelly.' He perceived her as an innocent child who had no interest in boys, that is until she met Jay. This might be because of when Shelly was a child, she said to her grandfather that she will never get married and live forever with him. Shelly's Dad - The only time that Shelly's dad was mentioned was when she asked him to take her bike apart and send it to her in Korea.
