Jujutsu Kaisen has become one among the most popular anime titles even though it was only released last October. Its second cour premiered on 15th January and the series is not disappointing fans in the slightest!
Although the anime features some typical shonen traits, its unique take on curses and negative energy forming evil creatures is what steals the audience’s attention.
MAPPA has given its best shot at the animation and the highly detailed action scenes are proof of that.
Crunchyroll had released the English dubbed version of the anime in November 2020. An interview with the English dub cast of Yuji Itadori and Satoru Gojou is here to raise your expectations of the anime even more!
Adam McArthur Plays Yuji Itadori and Kaiji Tang voices Satoru Gojou.
- Q. How were the voice actors drawn to the series?
Adam explained that he had been following the series for quite some time. However, the journey of a 15-year-old who has to constantly adapt to a dangerous world is what attracted him. “The stakes are high, and that’s very intriguing.“
Kaiji appreciated the anime as well and he was sucked into the series especially because he is a fan of the horror genre.
- Q. How does it feel to be a part of such a popular series?
Both the voice actors seem pleased with being a part of the series. From the art style to the music, they like it all and hope that it keeps going for a long time.
- Q. First impressions of the voiced characters.
Adam said that his impression of Yuji was similar to that of everyone else and he considered Yuji a hard-working character with a simple motivation.
Kenji commented that Satoru is a powerful character which makes him arrogant but at the same time vulnerable.
- Q. What sets Yuji and Satoru apart from all the previous roles played by the voice actors?
According to Adam Yuji’s journey is unlike anything he has ever portrayed. There are also some dark moments in the journey of the “good” boy. Kenji admits that Gojou’s power is on another level. However, he has never voiced a more handsome character before.
- Q. Since Sukuna is voiced by another person but he exists within Yuji, how does that influence Adam?
Adam replied that due to the ongoing pandemic, voice actors don’t record together. It is a challenge that they have to face but other than that there is no additional problem.
