Jujutsu Kaisen fans have reacted to the latest Solo Leveling video posted by Crunchyroll on YouTube: the caption is strongly reminiscent of Gojo Satoru’s most iconic quote.
Jujutsu Kaisen has many fans, but its popularity literally exploded in 2023: while the anime adapted the Shibuya Drama arc, the manga tackled the titanic battle against Sukuna. Better: Gojo Satoru himself emerged from the Edge of Torment to begin one of the most anticipated duels, against the king of scourges.
As for the animated series, Jujutsu Kaisen has bowed out while waiting for season 3. But another anime seems to want to take over, offering its share of action, powerful scenes and charismatic characters: Solo Leveling. The series is six episodes out, adapting the manhwa of the same name, and each chapter is more intense than the previous one.
The latest episode featured Sung Jinwoo’s clash with a C-rank boss. But what made Jujutsu Kaisen fans tick the most was a video that Crunchyroll posted on YouTube. We will explain everything to you.

What quote from Gojo from Jujutsu Kaisen is in the Solo Leveling video?
The quote in question (“Nah, I’d win”) has actually become a common thread on the Internet, and with good reason: Satoru Gojo’s confidence when he utters it in chapter 221 preceded a total defeat under the blows of Sukuna.
In the scene from Gege Akutami’s manga, Gojo and Sukuna exchange a few words before getting into a fight. When the failure of the Possessor of the Sixth Eye is predicted, the latter replies that no, “he will win” . If the phrase has become so cult, it is not only for the charisma of his character when he pronounces it: it is essentially because despite the assertion, Gojo absolutely does not survive the duel, unlike his opponent.

Despite his failure against Sukuna, Satoru Gojo’s popularity has not declined. And while Crunchyroll published a video to show the start of a fight between the hero and a colossal spider, fans quickly reacted to an obvious reference. In front of the giant boss, Sung Jinwoo regains his confidence and prepares to fight. And in fact, the title of the video is “Nah, I’ll win” .
This is not the first time that Solo Leveling recalls other works of Japanese animation: the “god” statue of the double dungeon in the first episodes had already appealed to fans of Attack on Titan.
As for whether Jinwoo had better luck than Gojo against the boss, that happened in Episode 6 of Solo Leveling.
