The recent and final episode of Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 cour 1 was an emotional one for all the fans. The episode showcased Geto’s spiral into evil, which lead to a strain in his friendship with Gojo.
The emotional scene where the two friends parted ways were hard on all the fans despite having known this outcome from the very start, and surprisingly this included KFC too.
Interestingly, the farewell between Geto and Gojo occurred against the backdrop of a KFC restaurant in the anime, a detail many seemed to have missed.
In an interesting take, KFC on their official X account (fka Twitter) acknowledged the emotional moment from the episode in a first person pov, making it seem like that they had front row seats when the scene occurred.
“Watching SatoSugu breakup was even harder from behind the register 😭,” they tweeted.
The unexpected reaction by KFC took Jujutsu Kaisen fans by surprise, resulting in some interesting conversations. Check them out below:
