the japanese portal Myjitsu shared an article noting that some Japanese fans are concerned about the possibility that the upcoming February 12 announcement for the franchise of Jujutsu Kaisen be a second season, especially after an industry source reported earlier this year that “all members of the production of a very popular anime of 2021 had left the studio to form their own company“.
«Since its premiere in December of last year, “Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie” has continued to increase its box office sales. Due to the success of the film, a special event will be held on February 12. It looks like there will be a big announcement there, and it is rumored on the net that it could be information about the second season of the anime… According to the official website for “Jujutsu Kaisen 0”, the special event will be held at the “TOHO Cinemas Hibiya” on February 12. The lineup of presenters was also unveiled and it was announced that the stage greetings would be broadcast live to theaters across the country. The site also writes in its statement, “There will also be a big announcement for the “Jujutsu Kaisen” franchise, please look forward to it!”»
«Information about the stage greeting spread quickly, and the “big announcement” to be made on stage attracted a lot of attention: “The big announcement is undoubtedly that of the second season of the anime“; “I hope this big announcement is about the second season of the anime“; “I heard that there will be a second Jujutsu Kaisen anime season!“; “This is definitely the second season of the anime, right? What else could it be?“, are some of the most notorious comments on networks».
«“If the big announcement on stage is about the second season of the anime, the concern is about the animation of the project. In fact, in January of this year, a person who seems to be connected to the animation industry revealed on Twitter that the main staff of “some high quality animation” that was a huge success last year had moved to another company. . The suspected projects were either Jujutsu Kaisen or Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation. If the rumors are true in the case of Jujutsu Kaisen, MAPPA, the production company that worked on the anime, will have a very difficult time if a second season of the anime is made. In addition, MAPPA has also announced that it will work on other current works such as Chainsaw Man, and some fans have expressed their opinions as “If there is a second anime season, MAPPA will be so busy that it will become a labor issue” Y “I’m glad for the second season, but I’m worried that MAPPA is working too hard», commented a source».
