The recent episode features Gojo’s best moment as he unleashes the true extent of his power. However, it appears that the Netflix subtitles ruin Gojo’s most iconic moment in Jujutsu Kaisen.

The Hidden Inventory/Premature Death arc of Jujutsu Kaisen nears its end with only one episode left before the grand finale. The recent episode features Toji fighting against both Geto and Geto, the strongest sorcerers in the world. 

The episode is still trending in social media since it features Gojo’s most iconic moment to this day. Sadly, Netflix subtitles ruin this fan-favorite moment in Jujutsu Kaisen. It’s not the first time the streaming giant has changed important dialogues in the series.

Although subs and dubs cannot always be completely accurate, changing them to this extent clearly doesn’t sit well with manga fans. Here’s how Netflix’s subtitles change the dialogue of Gojo’s best moment to this day.

Gojo becomes delirious after using Reverse Cursed Technique for the first time. Additionally, he overuses his Limitless and Six Eyes. At that moment, Gojo reaches some sort of enlightenment as he is unable to feel any hatred or anger. He says, “Throughout heaven and Earth, I alone am the honored one.”

This quote is taken from Lotus Sūtra, one of the most influential and venerated Buddhist Mahāyāna sūtras. These words were said by Buddha, who proclaimed himself to be without any equal. At first, Gojo calling himself the honored one may sound arrogant, but it represents him acquiring his true abilities and finally being the “strongest sorcerer alive.

Not to mention this remains his most iconic scene in the anime and manga as he reaches powers surpassing the limits of a human. However, in the recent Jujutsu Kaisen episode, Netflix subtitles change this dialogue to “Above and below, only I dominate.” Not only does it sound completely weird, but it ruins the scene’s importance.
