Talk about a shonen series that is mystifying and bizarre, and ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ will be among the top titles. Fans have been anxiously awaiting the second season while the events in the manga are witnessing twists one after another.
The second season has been announced for summer and will reveal some of the most pivotal events that lead to more gruesome situations in the future.
Studio MAPPA revealed a new promo video for ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ at its Stage Event 2023 on Sunday. The video showcases the opening song for the second season, which will air on July 6.
The video shows two characters in particular – Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto. Because Geto is in his exorcist uniform (like in the flashbacks of Jujutsu Kaisen 0), the season will reveal more events from the past. The video also shows Gojo facing Toji Fushigoro and protecting the girl Riko.
In the background, the opening song “Ao no Sumika” (Blue House) by Tatsuya Kitani is revealed. The ending song was previously revealed to be “Akari” (Lantern) by Soushi Sakiyama.
‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ Season 2 will adapt the ‘Gojo’s Past‘ arc (also known as Hidden Inventory / Premature Death Arc) and the ‘Shibuya Incident’ arc. The latter is said to be one of the three biggest arcs of the series.
Shōta Goshozono will direct this season instead of Sunghoo Park, who directed the first season and the movie ‘Jujutsu Kaisen 0. Goshozono has been the episode director for several popular series, including Jujutsu Kaisen, Chainsaw Man, and Ranking of Kings.
I am excited to see more of Gojo’s history and what made Geto turn against him. The first season also left us with so many questions about how Choso will take revenge, about the person controlling Mechamaru, and Mahito’s next move. Will the next season answer them all?
