It will be performed by Soushi Sakiyama, most popularly known for performing the second ending theme song for My Hero Academia season 5, titled Uso ja Nai. He has also performed the ending theme song for the 2019 anime 2.43: Seiin High School Boys Volleyball Team.


How fans reacted to the announcement

Upon seeing the announcement, anime fans quickly noticed that the song Ao no Sumika (Where Our Blue Is) was set to be performed by none other than Tatsuya Kitani, who performed the opening theme song for Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War. Thus, they were hyped to listen to the artist's new work in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2.

While most fans were excited about the release of Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, claiming its plot to be better than the first season, others did not have the same opinion as they called it overrated and titled it "Mid Kaisen." Subsequently, many fans were waiting for July to arrive soon, while others said they would not be watching the anime.
