The world of anime has given us countless heroes and unbelievably strong characters throughout the years. A hero doesn’t necessarily become one of the strongest anime characters from the start. Instead, he starts as a weak person, goes through many hardships, and the series follows them as they grow stronger until they deserve to be called the strongest. Even though such a cliché concept is beyond common, we cannot deny that it catches the audience’s attention every time. These incredible strong characters, when in action, can get your heart racing, and you can’t help but ask for more.
2020 was one hell of a bumpy ride for people around the globe. With the pandemic and lockdowns, the only thing that was keeping anime fans from boredom was the amazing new anime that kept on releasing one by one. Though the productions and development of anime took serious hits due to the pandemic, we still got to see many incredible characters. Even though we get to see some of the strongest anime characters every year, the excitement never stops. 2020 was no different.

With his immense Curse Energy, great physical strength, and unparallel speed, he can render any opponent immobile. Apart from physical strength, Satoru is brilliant and makes quick decisions during battle.
He earned the nickname of the strongest jujutsu sorcerer due to his immeasurable Curse Emergy that is vast enough to use a Domain Expansion multiple times a day. Any skilled sorcerer can use a highly advanced technique like Domain Expansion only once a day, which would drain all their curse energy. His domain expansion limits the movements and thought processes of his opponents.
His ability “Infinity” allows him to slow things down that come towards him, opponents and attacks alike. Satoru explains that the closer they get to him, the slower they become. His other strong ability is “Curse Technique Reversal: Red.” It allows him to create a great explosion that could repel even a powerful special grade spirit.
