Jujutsu Kaisen became one of the biggest Shonen series to take place in the regularly published Weekly Shonen Jump publication, with the franchise’s first film, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, helping the story of Yuji and Jujutsu Tech reach new heights. Now, it looks like the 7/11 troubleshooter is getting into the supernatural shenanigans as it launches a campaign in Japan later this month, creating new art of some of the biggest heroes that were introduced in the first season of the anime that was made by the animators of Studio MAPPA.
With the prequel film introducing the world of Jujutsu Tech before Yuji Itadori enters the scene, following the tragic story of Yuta Okkotsu as he finds his cursed energy tied to the death of the love of his life , expect the events of this film to have a role in the second season of the anime which should arrive next year. Currently, creator Gege Akutami continues to tell new stories about supernatural wizards, which means there’s plenty of material left for the TV series and potential feature films to be covered by the anime. Needless to say, the 7-11 campaign should be a bit lighter than some of the more gruesome events in the series.
Twitter user Kaikaikitan shared this new artwork for the Shonen franchise’s partnership with 7/11, using a much more colorful take on the heroes of Jujutsu Kaisen in the same vein as “Lost in Paradise,” the animation from end of the first season which is considered a fan favorite within the anime community:

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is currently the seventh biggest animated film of all time, grossing hundreds of millions of dollars in theaters. While Studio MAPPA is finishing work on this prequel, the animation house is currently working on the second season of Jujutsu Kaisenthe final act of The attack of the Titansand the new series Heaven from Hell: Jigokuraku, the animators definitely have a lot to do.
The campaign with 7/11 is set to begin later this month and will allow customers to pick up some of this unique art every time they visit one of these convenience stores.
