Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Release date, what to expect, and recap
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 to release in 2023
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 will be released sometime in 2023. The TV Special, which is scheduled to air on September 18, 2022, will most likely reveal the release date of the series. There are three possible release windows in a year that every anime follows - Winter (January - March), Spring (April - September), and Fall (October - December.) The first season was released about 11 months after it was announced. This means the second season of the anime should be released sometime in the fall if the upcoming TV special announces the release date.
It has been confirmed that MAPPA will be animating the second season as well. The animation studio has a lot of work to do since it is also responsible for Chainsaw Man.
What can fans expect from Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2?
So far, there are 14 story arcs in the manga, and the first season has adapted six of them, which accounted for a total of 64 chapters. Season 1 concluded with the adaptation of the Death Painting arc, which means the second season will begin with the adaptation of Gojo’s Past arc. This particular arc has about 14 chapters and revolves around the sorcerer’s life when he was a second-year student. At this point, Geto was his classmate, and the two were on a mission to escort the Star Plasma Vessel, which needed to reach Master Tengen.
However, the main focus of the second season will be the Shibuya Incident arc. This arc will focus on the curse users and curse spirits alliance that was formed by Geto and Mahito. They will attempt to seal Gojo Satoru forever. Fans can expect some impressive fights in this arc, and MAPPA’s top-tier animation will serve as the icing on the cake.
Synopsis of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1
Yuji Itadori is a young student who is a part of the Occult club in his school. He went to visit his grandfather in the hospital as his health was declining.
