The show follows high school student Yuji Itadori, who gets drag into the world of Jujutsu—a type of magic that involves using curses. Jujutsu Kaisen is an action-packed series with plenty of twists and turns to keep you engaged. If you’re looking for a new anime to watch, I highly recommend checking out this show. In this blog post, I’ll be discussing my thoughts on the first few episodes of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2
Summary of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1
Jujutsu Kaisen is a shonen manga series written and illustrated by Gege Akutami, serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump since March 2018. The story follows high school student Yūji Itadori, who becomes possessed by a cursed spirit during an occult-related incident and joins the Jujutsu Tech High School in order to exorcise cursed spirits.
The first season of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime television series was produced by MAPPA and directed by Yoshiyuki Asai, with Hiroshi Seko serving as both writer and chief supervisor. The season aired from October 2020 to March 2021 on Tokyo MX, BS11, GYT, GTV, and AT-X. Crunchyroll licensed the series for streaming outside of Asia and Funimation produced an English dub that streamed on FunimationNow worldwide except in Japan starting in December 2020.
The season covers the first eighty-six chapters of the manga series and adapts them across twenty-four episodes. The season was generally well-received by critics, with praise going to its handling of the source material, direction, animation quality, music, and voice acting.
What to Expect in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2
As fans of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime eagerly await the release of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 we thought it would be fun to take a look at what to expect from the next season of this popular show. While plot details are currently scarce, we can make some educated guesses based on the source material.
First and foremost, season 2 will likely adapt volumes 4-6 of the manga series. This means that viewers can expect to see more of the character development that was so well received in season 1. We’ll also get to see more of the relationship between Yuji and Megumi as they continue to work together to fight curses.
Of course, with more stories comes more action. Jujutsu Kaisen is known for its intense fight scenes, and Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is sure to deliver on that front. We can also expect to see some new characters introduced, as well as some old favorites, returning.
Whatever happens, we’re sure that Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will be another thrilling ride. So mark your calendars and get ready for more action, drama, and comedy than ever before!
