the japanese portal myjitsu published an article pointing out that the Japanese television TBS aired a special with the fourteenth through twentieth episodes of the anime adaptation of jujutsu kaisenwhich correspond to the “Kyoto Exchange Festival Arc“However, apparently it did not achieve the expected audience results.
«The movie version of “Jujutsu Kaisen” has been a great success and is very popular right now. On February 23, the anime re-aired on TBS in prime time, but just like the previous prime time broadcast, the reception and ratings were not as good as expected. “Jujutsu Kaisen” is an action series about the fight between sorcerers and spirits. This time, under the title “Jujutsu Kaisen: Kyoto Exchange Festival Arc – All at Once Broadcast SP,” episodes 14 to 20 of the television anime version aired consecutively.».
«The “Kyoto Exchange Festival Arc” is an arc in which the students of the “Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College” and its sister school, the “Kyoto Metropolitan Magic Technical College”, have an “exchange game”. ”. In addition to the main anime, there were also special VTRs (segments) and “supplementary commentaries” from comedians, which made it possible for even non-fans to enjoy the show.».
«“It was a lot of content, but the viewer rating was 6.0% (Video Research, Kanto region, same as above). The average audience rating for the special edition aired on January 10 was 5.1%, but taking into account that the anime’s final episode “Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yuukaku-hen” (Fuji Television Network) on February 13 recorded an average audience rating of 9.1%which is not at all surprising for a night broadcast, we cannot deny that the figure is still insufficientcommented a source».
«It was a prime time broadcast, but like in January, the results were disastrous. On the other hand, during the broadcast, it became a trend on Twitter, and there were voices of expectation, such as “the re-broadcast of the Jujutsu Kaisen arc is an opportunity to get a new audience”. But the results were not convincing, so comments like the following can be read on networks: “It was a bit confusing at first glance. I think it’s been difficult to get people to want to see it“; “Both the original manga and the Jujutsu Kaisen animation are works that gradually become interesting after several broadcasts, so it’s hard to get someone interested that quickly.“; “The story is so complicated to begin with that I think a lot of people didn’t understand what was going on until they saw it from the very first episode.“; “TBS, it doesn’t make any sense to make a show with a part of the animated series when “Jujutsu Kaisen 0” is a hit. I only see that they take advantage of the success of the film and try to make a small profit in the audiences“».
It should be remembered that the video game for smartphones Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade will be available soon in the catalog QooApp on this link.
