Fans of the Jujutsu Kaisen get another look at the hit-anime before the second season debuts with a mesmerizing new trailer from MAPPA.
Just as fans were hoping for, at this week’s MAPPA STAGE 2023 event, the show-runners for Jujutsu Kaisen dropped the second trailer for the upcoming second seasons which debut in Japan on Thursday, July 6, 2023, at 11:56 PM.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Debuts on July 6th
The trailer released on TOHO’s Youtube channel gives fans a further look at the adventures of Satoru Gojo and his companion Suguru Geto in their student days as they are tasked with escorting and protecting Star Plasma Vessel Riko Amanai. Fans also get a more detailed look at Megumi’s father Toji Fushiguro AKA the “Sorcerer Killer”, who will be the story arc’s main antagonist.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Delves Into Gojo and Geto’s Coming Of Age
While fans of the manga know the story of Gojo and Geto’s mission, for fans of the anime, the story is only hinted at in Jujutsu Kaisen O in the final conversation between an older Gojo and Geto, after Geto is defeated by Yuta Okkotsu. The story explores the relationship between the two Special Grade jujutsu sorcerers, and how it changed dramatically as a result of their experiences with Riko. Indeed, that mission created the circumstances that the rest of the story is dealing with up until this current point in the manga.
The MAPPA STAGE 2023 event also announced that the second season will have two parts. Part 2 will adapt the manga’s “Shibuya Incident” arc. In a follow-up tweet to the official Jujutsu Kaisen anime Twitter account, the show-runners posted visuals of Yuji, Nobara, Megumi, and the other characters of the first season who will be returning in Part 2.
Jujutsu Kaisen’s Season 2 Part 2 Will Adapt the Shibuya Incident Arc
“The Shibuya Incident” is one of Jujutsu Kaisen fandoms’ favorite story arcs largely due to its focus on the series’ strength, namely occult-themed battles between sorcerers running through the streets and alleys of Shibuya – Tokyo’s famed “degen” neighborhood. The arc formally debuts the main antagonist for the later part of the series, Kenjaku. It’s a high-paced, action-first storyline that should transfer well in anime format. The music arrangements for the second season were also announced at the MAPPA event. The opening theme, “Ao no Sumika” will be performed by Tatsuya Kitani, and the ending theme, “Light” will be performed by Satoshi Sakiyama.
With Jujutsu Kaisen’s manga reaching its final battle and the anime adapting a beloved arc, fans of the hit series have a lot to look forward to. Look for season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen when it releases on July 6th!
