King Vader has managed to earn quite a bit of notoriety as a Youtube star, creating videos that cast him and his fellow actors in the roles of some of the biggest anime characters around. In the past, Vader, who currently has around 2.75 million subscribers on Youtube, has created new takes on the likes of Dragon Ball Super, Cowboy Bebop, My Hero Academia, Demon Slayer and Pokemon to name a few, and now the filmmaker has released a nearly hour-long video paying tribute to Gege Akutami’s work in Jujutsu Kaisen.
King Vader’s “Hood Jujutsu Kaisen” premiered earlier this summer at Crunchyroll Expo, but now all Jujutsu Tech fans can watch the new video which is billed as the “first part” of a series that gives new life to Yuji Itadori. , Megumi, Nobara, Gojo, and the colorful cast of heroes and villains that make up the supernatural Shonen series. The first season of the anime adaptation brought a lot of new eyes to the history of the cursed world, and fans won’t have to wait too long for MAPPA to return to anime as the home animation has confirmed that 2023 will see the arrival of season two.

Here’s how Vader describes the new video with a new twist Jujutsu Kaisen:
“The Goodwill event began as students from both schools of jujutsu enter the playing area to chase the most curses. Will Yuji Itadori, our bright-eyed protagonist, and his friends Fushiguro and Nobara be enough to meet the challenges ahead?
Jujutsu Kaisen had a big year in 2022, with the prequel film, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, becoming one of the greatest animated films of all time. While the previous film followed a different protagonist in Yuta Okkotsu, fans should expect the film’s offshoots to come in the future of the TV series.
