Jujutsu Kaisen fans still haven’t recovered from Gojo Satoru’s death in chapter 236 of the Manga. Readers are in emotional turmoil, not being able to comprehend that the character who declared himself “the strongest among all” met his demise. However, the battle with Sukuna still continues as a new challenger steps into the ring. Fans were still hopeful that Gojo would heal himself or might return, but the Mangaka, Gege Akutami splashed water on the fans’ hope. Now fans are wondering who can defeat the King of all Curses since Gojo is no more.
Chapter 237 of the manga titled “Shinjuku Battlefield Part-14” presents a new character named Kashimo, who surprisingly has come forward to take down Sukuna. The editor of the manga comments, “Battle versus ‘The Strongest.’ Thunder God Kashimo enters the ring!!” Can this new character take down Sukuna and potentially become the strongest character in the series?

Who is this 400-year-old sorcerer in Jujutsu Kaisen?
Hajime, previously, is presented as an elderly man with turquoise-colored eyes that have short zig-zag lines underneath them. His eyebrows are thick, and his turquoise-colored hair is tied together in an untidy manner. Most of his hair is tied except for a single band that reaches beyond his neck. His hair on top is partitioned into left and right buns at the sides of his head. He is seen in a traditional dark-colored haori attire. But later reincarnated in a younger body.
Hajime can manipulate the properties of his cursed energy, which allows him to separate its electric charges. He can create a potential difference between himself and his opponent by applying the positive charge to his target and acting as the anode himself. This lets him strike his opponent with lightning strikes with 100% accuracy without any sort of domain expansion. However, this attack can’t be spammed, so Hajime needs time to recharge.

The coming chapters of Jujutsu Kaisen manga will reveal more about the cursed technique that Kashimo uses. Considering his powerful, electrifying cursed energy and combat intellect, he could stand against Sukuna as a worthy opponent. As the battle continues, fans are waiting to see Kashimo’s true potential. Considering the damage Gojo inflicted upon him, and he is still healing from grave injuries like a severed hand, a lost eye, and extensive wounds, Kashimo has a very good probability of going against him in the weakened state.
Hajime Kashimo possesses a massive amount of cursed energy. He is always in a state of electrification because of his cursed energy. His attacks are reinforced with cursed energy, which makes them almost impossible to evade as it shocks the opponents as well. He hasn’t revealed his cursed technique yet, and some fans are speculating that it may be because he can only use it once.
