The exceptional anime “Jujutsu Kaisen” was one of the absolute winners of the fall season 2020 in Japan, and the action-packed fantasy adventure is also very popular here at Wakanim and Crunchyroll. In addition, “Jujutsu Kaisen 0” was launched extremely successfully as a prequel film in Japanese cinemas at the end of December. Season 2 of the anime series will await you in the course of 2023.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Release Date
For a long time, mangaka Gege Akutami and animation studio MAPPA kept a low profile regarding a second season of “Jujutsu Kaisen.” However, both the manga and the anime adaptation are currently among the most popular franchises and it was only a matter of time before season 2 was announced.
The sequel is planned for the year 2023. In the statement via Twitter, the series creators also thank Gege Akutami for the exclusive illustration of and commentary on season 2.
Is there any trailer for “Jujutsu Kaisen” Season 2?
There is currently no trailer for season 2. Just recently, on December 24, 2021, the prequel film “Jujutsu Kaisen 0” was released in Japanese theaters.
The feature film adapts the prequel of the anime series, for which mangaka Gege Akutami is also responsible. The trailer shows you images from the film around protagonist Yuta Okkotsu, who is voiced in the original Japanese by voice actress Megumi Ogata (Shinji in “Neon Genesis Evangelion”, Sailor Uranus in “Sailor Moon”).
Yuta’s life is turned upside down from one day to the next when a curse takes possession of him. For his fellow men, the young man represents a deadly danger. Now he has to learn how to deal with his dark powers at the College of Magic. But he finds here not only allies, sinister figures have it on his power to abuse it for their own plans.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Plot
The last battles of the first season are fought and season 1 ends with the exorcism of particularly insidious curse spirits. If the anime adaptation continues to follow the manga template at the same pace, then we can expect that season 2 might start with a flashback.
The flashback will bring you closer to Geto’s story and tell you why he was devoured by the darkness. In addition, there could be a big incident in Shibuya. There, Yuji and his friends as well as their enemies will be asked to do a lot.
The anime movie for “Jujustu Kaisen 0” also fits into the theme of past events. In any case, you will certainly not be bored and you can expect exciting fights in a class of their own.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Production
Since Mappa also co-produced the prequel as a movie, there is nothing to prevent the studio from animating the subsequent seasons as well. The animation quality and pacing of the anime are consistently at a high level, so a studio change is extremely unlikely.
Nevertheless, another studio could be commissioned with the production, as Studio Mappa may already have its hands full with “Chainsaw Man,” “Kagegurui Twin,” the sequel to “Kakegurui: Life is a Game,” “Dance Dance Danseur” and a possible season 2 of “Dorohedoro.
