Jujutsu Kaisen became an instantaneous hit thanks to its gorgeous animation and dynamic fight choreography, not to mention its realistic characters with relatable and grounded personalities that broke through all the supernatural and magical action. Season 2 will return us back to Tokyo Jujutsu High where students work tirelessly against curse user groups that seek to undermine them.
The anime’s second season will adapt the Gojo Past and Shibuya Incident arcs from the manga. The former will explore Geto Suguru’s life before he and Satoru Gojo became friends; while Shibuya Incident takes place after they start their first job escorting a Star Plasma Vessel for Master Tengen and introduces many of the same students seen in season one, such as Utahime Iori, Mei Mei Fushiguro, Riko and Toji Fushiguro among many others.
Fans of Jujutsu KIA have eagerly anticipated news regarding season 2, and it seems more details will be unveiled at Jump Festa 2023 later this month. A Japanese announcement trailer showed off an opening theme song and artwork for this season; additionally it revealed that it would air during summer 2023 during regular programming blocks in Japan; thus meaning two “cours,” or seasons would run over approximately 23 episodes of time.
After the success of both manga and anime creator Gege Akutami’s first season and its prequel film, it comes as no surprise that they are already planning to do it all over again! On Saturday the mangaka announced that ‘Jujutsu Kia’ season two would premiere in 2023 along with an image showing one of its main characters (possibly Ryomen Sukuna) having an “impressively intimidating demeanor.”
Mahito, another new character introduced by the trailer, remains unknown in either manga or anime; however, her promotional poster shows her wearing white attire while holding onto a staff.
The anime production team for season two of ‘Jujutsu’ has yet to be officially revealed, though staff from MAPPA Studio E&H who worked on the movie may return for Season 2. Additionally, South Korean director Sunghoo Park contributed his skills during Season 1.
