It is all in place for Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 to be a huge success. It comes on the heels of the hugely successful Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film, and a general surge in anime (fueled by shows like Attack on Titan and Demon Slayer) has left fans yearning for more. Mind you, just if they’re not ravenous for fingers.
Finally, after the movie descended into prequel territory, we’re back to watching Yuji and the group. We’ll go through the official Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 release date, a look ahead at what it could adapt from the original material, and everything else for the upcoming season that’s still up in the air.
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will air in 2023
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will premiere in 2023, according to a press conference in Japan (via Crunchyroll). Winter 2023 (beginning January 2023), Spring 2023 (beginning April 2023), or Fall 2023 are the three major anime release periods (starting October 2023).
And we’d have to bet, we’d say Fall 2023 is the most likely release date. Not only did the first season premiere in the Fall timeframe, but MAPPA Animation also worked on Jujutsu Kaisen 0, Attack on Titan, and the forthcoming Chainsaw Man. That’s a hard timetable for any studio, but from October 2023 onwards, they’ll have plenty of time to create a second season that lives up to their ridiculously high expectations.
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 story
The Death Painting Arc, which spanned from chapters 55 to 64 in the manga, concluded Jujutsu Kaisen’s first season. If the anime follows the manga’s release order, Gojo’s Past Arc, which spans chapters 65 to 79 in the manga, will be next.
It was about Gojo’s history, especially a mission in which Gojo and Geto were tasked with transporting a Star Plasma Vessel to Tengen.
If that’s the case, the second season might be a jumble of flashbacks to Gojo’s history, as well as a buildup to the Shibuya Incident, the show’s next big storyline (chapters 79-136). Don’t worry, we’re not going into the spoiler zone here, but the Shibuya Incident Arc centers around Gojo and his new cursed alliance attempting to shut Goto away.
That appears to be the most likely option, given it has more than enough content for the second season of 25 episodes. The conclusion of the first season may possibly suggest this.
Yuji and Nobara rejoin Megumi after defeating the Cursed Wombs Eso and Kechizu. Sukuna, on the other hand, consumes Yuji’s finger and pushes him one step closer to recovering his strength, thanks to a mouth in Yuji’s hand, because of anime.
The creeping evil, as well as that of the third Cursed Womb triplet, Choso, who has allied himself with series antagonists Geto and Mahito, will be the focus of the upcoming season.
There’s also the question of a mole at Jujutsu High, with instructor Utahime on the lookout for the shady magician. This will also play a significant role in the upcoming season.
Yuji, Megumi, Nobara (together with Maki and Panda) are suggested for promotion to Grade 1 Sorcerers in the final season 2 setup. Gojo also encourages them to join a new mission.
Do I need to see Jujutsu Kaisen 0 before starting Jujutsu Kaisen season 2?
We’d highly suggest it, but it’s not required because the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film is a prelude to the main series.
The film focuses on swordsman Yuta Okkotsu, who will play a larger part in the Jujutsu Kaisen anime as the series progresses. He’s also one of the most popular manga characters, so you should definitely go see what all the hype is about.
Also, there’s a post-credits segment that sets up the anime’s future events. It centers around Yuta returning to Japan and joining the main series, however, it’s unclear whether he’ll appear in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2.
It also is worth searching out from a completionist standpoint, since it expands on the setting and the curse-laden notion of the cosmos, all while providing a gripping tale in its own right. If you’re short on time, you can probably skip it, but we strongly advise you to do so.
Where can I watch Jujutsu Kaisen before season 2?
Should you need to close the gap on Jujutsu Kaisen before season 2, Crunchyroll presently has all 24 episodes of the first season accessible to watch. Because of the recent merger with Funimation, expect to be able to view Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, Demon Slayer season 3, and other popular anime exclusively on the streaming site.
