The hashtag #五条悟誕生祭2023 is trending today on X. In English, this hashtag means Gojo Satoru Birthday Festival 2023.
Many posts with this hashtag feature fanart and all sorts of tributes to Gojo. Interestingly, a lot of these fanart feature Gojo eating or making a strawberry shortcake.
This makes sense, not just because it’s his birthday. After all, it has been noted in the story that Gojo has a sweet tooth. Thus, enjoying a big slice of cake is no doubt his preferred way of celebrating.
The celebrations are a nice break from the anime’s rather depressing events. Fans will need to get ready for more heartbreak though, as Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is getting a new episode soon.
