Manga and anime are inextricably linked, and it can take years for a fan-favorite manga to be adapted into a television series or a movie, depending on how popular the manga is. That was not the case in the case of “Jujutsu Kaisen.” Original publication date: 2018. The dark fantasy novel “Jujutsu Kaisen” was first published in 2018. It is set in a world where “Curse,” or evil spirits, are rampant and people train to become sorcerers in order to be able to defeat them. In the series, a teenage boy named Yuji Itadori saves his friends by eating a cursed object, which causes him to become the host of a curse known as Sukuna, which he then passes on to his friends.
In less than a year after the manga’s publication, an anime adaptation was announced, and in October 2020, the first 24 episodes of “Jujutsu Kaisen” began airing on MBS and TBS in Asia, with the remaining episodes later being made available on Crunchyroll in other parts of the world. The season finale will air on March 27, 2021, according to the schedule. It is directed by Sunghoo Park, who has previously worked on such projects as “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood,” “Garo: Divine Flame,” and others, and it is produced by MAPPA, the animation studio that also worked on the new “Yasuke” anime for Netflix as well as the television series “Yuri on Ice.”
The first season of “Jujutsu Kaisen” was extremely well received, with an 8.7 rating on IMDb at the time of this writing. One of the primary reasons the series was so well-received was due to the nuanced and realistic characters — particularly those of the female variety — that it featured. “Jujutsu Kaisen” is a part of the shonen genre of anime, which has historically been quite sexist, but the “storey allows [its female characters] to disagree and fight for their perspectives and their place,” according to the anime’s official website (via Polygon). Considering its overall impact on the world of anime, “Jujutsu Kaisen” has already made a significant impact, and fans of the series are eagerly awaiting any news of a second season.
Here’s everything we know about Season 2 of “Jujutsu Kaisen” so far, in case you’re curious.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Confirmed Release Date
A film titled Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will be released in the near future, according to the creators of the anime series “Jujutsu Kaisen,” which concluded its first season this past summer. It was also revealed that the film would include a prequel storyline titled “Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School,” which follows the exploits of two characters named Yuta Okkotsu and Rika Orimoto at a technical school in Tokyo. The announcement was accompanied by the release of a short trailer, as well as a tentative release date of winter 2022. But what about the second season of “Jujutsu Kaisen”?
As it happens, during an online press conference in January, Yichi Mushiaki, president of the MBS television channel in Japan, gave fans a glimmer of hope for the series’ future. As reported by the Anime News Network, he stated that “At this point, I’d like everyone to hold off until we come up with a more concrete plan. However, I believe that we will be able to deliver a development that will meet expectations.”
A few weeks after those remarks were made, it was officially announced that Season 2 of “Jujutsu Kaisen” will be released sometime in 2023, as previously stated (via Crunchyroll). Fans of “Jujutsu Kaisen” can at least rest easy knowing that a second season of the show is on the way. No specific date has been set for the show’s return, but fans of the show can at least rest easy knowing that a second season is on the way.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Cast
In order to continue the story of Season 1, the second season of “Jujutsu Kaisen” will most likely feature the majority of the same cast as Season 1. In particular, Junya Enoki appears as Yuji, the protagonist who accepts a mission to find all of Sukuna’s pieces, voiced by Junichi Suwabe, with the understanding that he will have to sacrifice himself in order to defeat Sukuna in the end.
The characters who fight alongside Yuji are Megumi (Yuma Uchida), an unyielding sorcerer who must join forces with Yuji, and Nobara (Asami Seto), a headstrong young woman who is a formidable opponent. Satoru (Yuichi Nakamura), on the other hand, is the most powerful sorcerer in the area and is a teacher at Jujutsu High, where the three friends train.
As the world of “Jujutsu Kaisen” continues to expand with the release of the new movie and subsequent episodes, it is highly likely that the show will introduce new characters, whether through new Curses, new sorcerers, or just regular old humans that Yuji encounters. In the future, this will open the door for many talented voice actors to join the cast of the show.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Plot
Jujutsu Kaisen follows Yuji’s first encounter with Sukuna and how he becomes entangled with the Jujutsu School and sorcerers throughout Season 1. Through the first season, the story progresses through a series of battles in which the show’s characters face off against Curses in their pursuit of Sukuna’s pieces. At the same time, Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara are faced with a variety of personal challenges, including disagreements over each other’s techniques and values, as well as the emotional toll that killing Curses has taken on their lives. Yuji and Nobara defeat the Death Paintings, two human brothers who have transformed into Curses, at the conclusion of the first season. Yuji also re-connects with one of his former classmates, Yuko, who has developed a romantic interest in him.
Based on the events depicted in the manga, it appears reasonable to assume that Season 2 of “Jujutsu Kaisen” will cover the “Shibuya Incident” story arc. This series follows a group of sorcerers, led by Yuji, as they battle a well-coordinated effort by Curses and other evil forces to eliminate those who stand in their way. Yuji and the others suffer a number of significant losses during the course of the story arc, which includes a great deal of intense fighting with potentially deadly ramifications. This will be a major event for fans of the anime series “Jujutsu Kaisen,” and it will have long-term ramifications for the series and its characters.
