Jujutsu Kaisen: MAPPA wants season 2 to go one step further than the first

The first season of “jujutsu kaisen” it was a huge success that shot Gege Akutami’s work to worldwide recognition. “Jujutsu Kaisen 0” was, similarly, a success on a global scale that reported millions and millions at full speed. The story of Itadori, Gojo, Yuta and more characters is already a consolidated ‘hit’ in the modern anime industry, and obviously Season 2 is expected to reaffirm this in spades. And yes, since MAP also expect that to happen.

Jujutsu Kaisen anime wants to reassert itself with season 2

Now, it has been as a result of a Crunchyroll interview with the MAPPA staff that he has made his intentions known in the return of the anime: to make it go even further than what was achieved in the first season (via @king_jin_woo).

  • From MAPPA they don’t just want to do the same things again in season 2 as in season 1. I mean, aspire to take anime to new heights. ❗
  • Specifically, they comment that they would like ‘get more success and growth in season 2, both for Jujutsu Kaisen as well as MAPPA‘. ❗
  • At MAPPA they are clear about their ultimate goal: to convince even more fans to jump on the Jujutsu Kaisen anime ship and, ultimately, provide a deep and impactful story. ✔️
  • The anime, you have to remember, returns in 2023 with its season 2. At the time it was said even in winter, but it was quickly corrected to confirm that, for now, the only release date for the sequel Jujutsu Kaisen is next year. ✔️

I think we all really want the “Jujutsu Kaisen” anime to return, and it is that little by little it has managed to become a current reference like few others in the anime industry. On the other hand, what piques my curiosity the most is to see what will be the extension of season 2 of the anime, because if in MAPPA they bet again on the same as in the first season we will soon catch up with Gege Akutami’s manga. And as you know, that is something that must always be followed with a magnifying glass.
