While manga and anime go hand-in-hand, fan-favorite manga can take years to be translated for television or film. That was not the case for “Jujutsu Kaisen.” An evil spirit known as a “Curse” roams the globe, and sorcerers are trained to combat them. “Jujutsu Kaisen” was published in 2018. By swallowing an object cursed with the Sukuna curse, a teenage kid named Yuji Itadori saves the lives of his pals.
The anime adaptation of “Jujutsu Kaisen” began showing on MBS and TBS in October 2020, only a year after the manga was first released, while Crunchyroll began streaming the 24 episodes outside of Asia in November 2020. On March 27, 2021, the series came to an end. MAPPA, the studio behind “Yasuke” and “Yuri on Ice,” is behind the anime version of “Jujutsu Kaisen,” which is helmed by Sunghoo Park, who previously worked on “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood,” “Garo: Divine Flame,” and more.
As of this writing, “Jujutsu Kaisen” has an IMDb audience rating of 8.7. In particular, the female characters are being hailed for their complex and realistic portrayals. As a shonen anime, the “narrative lets [the female characters] dispute” and “battle for their ideas and their place” despite its sexist nature (via Polygon). According to a recent poll, supporters of “Jujutsu Kaisen” are eagerly anticipating any news of a second season.
Renewal and Release Date for Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will be a prologue to the anime, which was announced on March 27th. As a film, it will be released on December 24, 2021. After that, it will be a time until the game is released outside of Japan. Until the publication of Jujutsu Kaisen 0, there has been no word regarding a second season.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 and the 64-chapter manga series will keep you entertained till then.
Who are the cast members of Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen?
The second season of “Jujutsu Kaisen” is likely to feature a majority of the characters from the first season. With the understanding that he will have to sacrifice himself in order to beat Sukuna, Junichi Suwabe voices Yuji, the main character, who accepts the job to discover Sukuna’s missing pieces.
Alongside Yuji are Megumi, a stoic sorcerer who must team up with Yuji, as well as Nobara, an outspoken young woman who is a force to be reckoned with in combat. At Jujutsu High School, Satoru, played by Yuichi Nakamura, is the strongest sorcerer in the area and educates his students.
“Jujutsu Kaisen” is anticipated to expand with the release of the movie and the subsequent series of episodes, and new characters are likely to be introduced as a result. This opens the door to a wide range of talented voice performers.
What can we expect from the second season?
The Gojo Past Arc, which covers chapters 64 to 79, will be the first episode of the new season.
The story is set in 2007 when Satoru Gojo was a sophomore at Tokyo Jujutsu High School. It’s up to Satoru and Suguru Geto to get Master Tengen’s Star Plasma Vessel to him as curse user organisations scheme against them.
We’ll see whether anything has changed when this article is updated next year. Check out the re-runs of Healer Season 2 and Tokyo Revenge Season 2 while you wait.
