Jujutsu Kaisen, with only one season, created a tidal wave in the world of Japanese animation. It is therefore with great impatience that its sequel is awaited. Release date, plot and new characters: we reveal everything to expect from season 2.
Jujutsu Kaisen is an anime full of drama and violence. Yet this will be the key to its success.
The latest information about Jujutsu Kaisen season 2
Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen was hoped for 2022. Finally it is in 2023, more precisely in February, that the anime will continue its story. Aware of the constant hype among fans, Gege Akutami and the MAPPA studio had the brilliant idea of designing a prequel film: Jujutsu Kaisen 0. The latter had the particularity of discovering the world of exorcists before the introduction of Yuji Itadori. It also served as an introduction to a new character essential to the anime’s future.
Bows of Jujutsu Kaisen 2
In season 1, the story focused on Yuji Itadori, and his insertion into the world of exorcists. This covered the first 64 chapters of the manga. This time the story will focus on Gojo Satoru. The one who is described as the strongest of the exorcists, has become the target of the plagues. In season 2, we will discover more details about his past, and about those who knew him. In addition, the plagues evoked in season 1 an event which would take place on October 31 in Shibuya. This event is arguably going to be a major turning point for the anime.
The plot of the previous season
Jujutsu Kaisen had started off quite grimly. In a dark and gloomy environment, Yuji was chained. Indeed, the young man to protect his friends, had swallowed the finger of Ryomen Sukuna, the most powerful demon. Although he benefited from Sukuna’s strength, the young man became a danger to the exorcists. This is how he was sentenced to death. But a market is offered to him. Even if it means dying, then we might as well be useful, we suggest to him. The deal is as follows: accept to ingest all of Ryomen Sukuna’s fingers and be eliminated once the objective is reached, or refuse and be executed on the spot. Yuji accepts the reprieve from the society of exorcists, and integrates this unusual world. He makes friends there, and learns to develop his occult energy.
