Since it began to be published in the popular Shonen Jump magazine Gege Akutami’s manga has been very popular with both the public and critics, and this popularity has only increased since its anime adaptation premiered in 2020, with which the MAPPA animation studio replicated the success that Ufotable had already had with the adaptation of another popular series, Kimetsu no Yaibafrom the same magazine in 2019.
Since the first season of the anime began broadcasting in October 2020 to date, the series, in its various formats, has garnered one success after another, heading the sleeve sales rankings and sweeping the box office with the premiere of its prequel film jujutsu kaisen 0 in December 2021.
Now, with the announcement of its second season, it is expected that the series will strengthen its position as one of the anime and manga of the moment, and is that according to the readers of the manga, the material that is going to be adapted in this season is very promising. For this reason, we probably expect a good dose of action and charismatic wizards.

Definitely, the story of jujutsu kaisen it is very interesting. Although he took many of the usual topics of shonen manga, he knew how to make them his own and move away from certain clichés to build a story that, within the canons of the industry, also feels fresh and new. His urban fantasy that can remind us of genre classics like bleach or HunterxHunter is at the same time very current, giving us protagonists that resonate with modern sensibilities, concerns and tastes.
However, although Gege Akutami’s manga is of unquestionable quality, It would be a lie to say that the excellent adaptation of it made by the MAPPA studio has nothing to do with its growing success.. With careful animation and a very polished direction, the studio (behind other great anime successes such as the famous Yuri on Ice) managed to give a real blow to the table, delivering an excellent result from the openings to the comic shorts at the end of each chapter, which showed a perfect understanding of the material that was being adapted.
This success has ended up consolidating a studio that, not exempt from controversy over its working conditions, has become one of the heavyweights in the industryespecially since is simultaneously adapting the final season of Attack the titans and which has recently announced the adaptation of other popular manga such as Chainsaw Man. Now it only remains to wait if they will be able to maintain the level they achieved with jujutsu kaisen and repeat the success they had with this goal with their first season with the new titles to come.
