Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the biggest and best titles in the shonen world right now, with a 24-episode anime season and an ongoing manga series to its name. This is a supernatural action series that may remind fans of older titles such as Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho, with a bit of Naruto thrown in, but Jujutsu Kaisen has found a voice of its own, and fans can't get enough of characters such as Yuji Itadori and Satoru Gojo. Satoru Gojo is a fun-loving but incredibly powerful sorcery teacher at the Tokyo Sorcerer school, and fans like him just as much as Yuji himself, if not more. Better yet, Satoru may remind fans of many similar anime characters, and in a way, the anime world is packed with Satoru Gojos. Kisuke Urahara is a fallen Soul Reaper Captain and a well-regarded citizen of Karakura Town, running a deceptively simple candy shop called Urahara Shoten. Kisuke was introduced as an eccentric expert of souls and Hollows, but there's more to it than that.
Ms. Joke is a heroics teacher at the Ketsubutsu school and an associate of Shota Aizawa.
Ichigo quickly realized that "Mr. Hat and Clogs" is actually a deadly swordsman and an expert in kido spells, despite his goofy antics, and Kisuke was pivotal in the downfall of Captain Sosuke Aizen. Just like Satoru, Kisuke is not to be taken lightly. In many ways, Satoru Gojo is a tribute to the shonen character Kakashi Hatake of Naruto fame. To begin with, both characters routinely cover a part of their face, and they don't expose their eyes casually. Both characters are in command of the main three-person squad in their respective series, and they are normally easygoing and funny but can turn quite serious if powerful enemies show up. Satoru and Kakashi would get along great if they ever met. Ms. Joke is a heroics teacher at the Ketsubutsu school and an associate of Shota Aizawa. Ms. Joke is Aizawa's total opposite, featuring a colorful outfit, an outgoing personality, and a Quirk that makes a big ruckus (she can make people laugh hysterically to stop them from attacking her). Despite all her silly jokes and teasing, though, Ms. Joke is a dedicated professional, just like all the other heroes like Satoru Gojo, and she won't hesitate to protect her students from any insults or danger. No doubt all her students have fun in her classes.
There are enemies to defeat and a whole world to explore, after all.
In this grim shonen series, most characters are rather high-strung and serious, such as Captain Levi Ackerman and Mikasa, but Hange Zoe is there to mix things up a bit. Hange is a Titan expert and enthusiast with a rowdy behavior that gets on Levi's nerves more than a little. Still, Hange knows what must be done and is willing to risk their life to fight off the Titans or the Marley Empire's forces, with or without all the jokes and antics just like Satoru. There are enemies to defeat and a whole world to explore, after all. It's true that Izumi Curtis isn't nearly as goofy or whimsical as Satoru Gojo, but otherwise, they are loosely similar in their respective series. Izumi Curtis is the tough but kind alchemist who helped train the Elric brothers, and they respect and fear her in equal measure. Izumi is caring to the brothers and has a few odd quirks, from her spontaneous mouth-bleeding to her erratic temper, but she is deadly and serious in combat, showing no mercy to the homunculi or corrupt military officers.
39;s level, perhaps, but good enough.
Sloth never saw her coming. During the Battle Tendency story arc in particular, fans may be reminded of Satoru Gojo when they see Joseph Joestar in action against the terrifying Pillar Men and similar foes. Joseph is a powerful Hamon user and a clever fighter, but he can't resist cracking jokes or pranking people. His personality matches Satoru's perfectly, and he's a formidable fighter on top of that. Not on Satoru's level, perhaps, but good enough. Satoru Gojo has some parallels in non-shonen series, too. In this shojo franchise, Shigure Sohma quickly established himself as a real joker, often making silly and dry comments about the shenanigans around him while endlessly teasing his hapless editor. Most Sohmas find him irritating. Shigure isn't just a class clown, though. He is privy to some of the family's darkest secrets and knowledge, and he knows far more about other people's lives, relationships, and motives than he lets on.
When the chips are down, though, Shinra and the others can always rely on him to save the day.
Like Satoru, this joker can suddenly unsheath his serious side and take control of any situation. Captain Akitaru Obi has no ignition ability to call his own; Instead, he uses intense physical conditioning to enhance his combat effectiveness, and it has paid off. He uses high-tech gear and advanced moves to get the edge on his foes, even fellow fire soldiers such as Benimaru Shinmon. This show is known for its eccentric and odd humor, and Akitaru is no different, being a warm-hearted and silly fellow who can't say no to anything. When the chips are down, though, Shinra and the others can always rely on him to save the day. This character appeared early in the series as the ruler of the city Omashu, right there in the Earth Kingdom. Bumi is over 100 years old, and he was once Avatar Aang's childhood friend, who always encouraged Aang to think outside the box and be resourceful at all times. His quirky humor is endearing, whether in his boyhood or as an elderly king. Still, Earth isn't just a joker. He earned that crown as a wise and insightful Earthbender, and Satoru Gojo fans will appreciate Bumi's combination of goofy humor, strength, and wisdom in one fun package. Aang sure has some powerful friends. Gildarts Clive is an S-ranked wizard, among the best of the best, but he never feels the need to boast about it. Instead, Gildarts takes great pride in the current generation of Fairy Tail wizards, and he's almost like a doting uncle to many of them (and he is Cana Alberona's father). For the most part, Gildarts is easygoing and is always in the mood to laugh, and he often sparred with Natsu Dragneel to help the boy get stronger. When his friends are threatened, though, Gildarts will fight back without mercy, and literally crush anything in his way (he has Crush magic). Satoru Gojo can appreciate that.
Manga Works Only Underneath These Conditions
The Quintessential Quintuplets (Japanese:, Hepburn: Go-Tōbun no Hanayome, lit. Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. It was serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from August 2017 to February 2020, with its chapters collected into fourteen tankōbon volumes. The series follows the daily life of a high school student Futaro Uesugi, who is hired as a private tutor for a group of identical quintuplets: Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano. At the very beginning of the story, it is shown that the events are being told in a flashback, while an adult Futaro prepares to marry one of the Nakano Quintuplets whose identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The series is published in English by Kodansha USA under the Kodansha Comics imprint. The anime series is licensed in North America under a Crunchyroll-Funimation partnership. An anime television series adaptation produced by Tezuka Productions aired from January to March 2019 on TBS and other channels. The series is a commercial success, being the 5th best-selling manga in 2019, and the 3rd best-selling manga in the first half of 2020 in Japan. In 2019, the manga won the award for the shnen category at the 43rd annual Kodansha Manga Awards. High school student Futaro Uesugi is an academically gifted student that leads a difficult life-his mother has died, he has no friends, and on top of all that, his father has incurred a large amount of debt. An opportunity presents itself when the rich Nakano family transfers to his school.
Futaro is promptly hired as a highly paid tutor. However, much to Futaro's dismay, he discovers that his five charges-identical quintuplet sisters of varied personalities-have no interest in studying at all and have abysmal grades. Some of the quintuplets are against having Futaro, whom they view as a stranger, in their apartment, but Futaro's diligent tenacity gradually convinces those girls to accept him and to improve their grades. Throughout the series, Futaro develops special relationships with each of the quintuplets. Through a flashforward, it is revealed that he eventually marries one of them, but her true identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The idea of "a group of quintuplets falling in love with the same person" existed even before the serialization of Haruba's previous work, Karma of Purgatory (2014-2015), but was very simple at that time. The idea was denied by his editor-in-charge. A year after, after the end of Karma of Purgatory, he discussed with his editor-in-charge what to serialize next.
Among the few ideas being come up with, the "quintuplets" idea was included again, which was accepted by the editor this time. After failures in two to three serialization committees, finally, it was decided to have a one-shot manga published first. The one-shot received positive reviews and therefore went on to serialization. It was decided the protagonist should be quintuplets at the very beginning. When later the idea of quadruplets and sextuplets was raised, it was rejected very quickly, around 30 seconds. Haruba said it might be a reference to Super Sentai when he came up with this idea. Similar to Super Sentai, Ichika (yellow), Nino (black), Miku (blue), Yotsuba (green), and Itsuki (red) are all represented by a color. The design of the quintuplets started from his favorite existing female characters from "some slice-of-life works only with girls", around 15 to 20 of them. The idea of adding numbers in their names was after the design was almost confirmed.
The hair color of the Nakano quintuplets is different when being colored, which was suggested by Haruba himself, such that they are more distinguishable from each other. The hair color of the bride in the flashforward is, therefore, a colour-in-between. The flashforward showing that Futaro will eventually marry only one of the Nakano quintuplets was added in order to eliminate the possibility of Futaro marrying all five of them. It was also decided that all quintuplets would have negative feelings towards Futaro from the beginning, because Haruba wanted to write how their relationships improved from hate to love in the story, except Yotsuba, who acts as Futaro's guide for the development of the story. While it is often the norm for harem romantic comedy manga to have sexualized depictions of characters, Haruba has said that he tried to avoid this to some extent after Vol. In his opinion, showing panties which are being worn, ie To keep the characters interesting, the sexy scenes were intended by him to be ambiguous but not straightforward, leading to readers' imagination. The swimsuit appearance of the Nakanos was finally revealed in Ep.
