The English dub airs around two weeks before the subtitled version does at the moment.
Is Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen a Prequel?
A brief prequel, Jujutsu Kaisen 2 took place before the events of the first season.
The Death Painting Arc in the manga concluded the first season of Jujutsu Kaisen, which spanned chapters 55–64. Gojo’s Past Arc (Hidden Inventory/Premature Death), which spans chapters 65-79 in the manga, has been adapted in their entirety for the second season.
That’s about an old mission that Gojo and Geto did together, protecting a Star Plasma Vessel on its way to Tengen.
Shibuya Incident (chapters 79-136) will be adapted into the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen later in August, bringing the series back to the present day. We won’t give anything away, but the entire plot of the Shibuya Incident Arc is Gojo and his new cursed alliance sealing away Goto.
That has been confirmed to run for two full courses, and we just received confirmation that it will run for 18 episodes, increasing the total number of episodes in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 to 23.
In need of a quick recap of recent events? Yuji and Nobara reunite with Megumi after their victory over the Cursed Wombs Eso and Kechizu. But, because anime, Sukuna eats the finger and takes another step towards reclaiming his strength by doing so.
The third member of the Cursed Womb trio, Choso, has joined forces with Geto and Mahito, so you can expect that evil to play a role in the Shibuya Incident storyline of the upcoming season.
There’s also the fact that there’s a mole at Jujutsu High, and that Utahime is hot on the trail of the treacherous wizard. The next season will likewise focus heavily on that.
Season 2 ends with Gojo inviting Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara (together with Maki and Panda) to take part in a new mission after they are recommended for advancement to Grade 1 Sorcerers.
Season 2 of Jutsu Kaisen: A Brief Synopsis
In the last episode, we saw Master Tengen recruit Gojo and Geto (then second-year students) to guard his Plasma Star Vessel, a girl named Riko. The Q sect and the Time Vessel Association are on the search for Riko, making that goal seem impossible. At the end of last week’s episode, he hired Toji Fushiguto to kill Riko.
In the second episode, Gojo and Geto finally “meet” Riko in person, however she ultimately decides against enrolling in Jujutsu High for her own safety. Toji places a price on Riko’s head, and the Star Vessel receives a word that her maid, Kuroi, has been taken shortly after Geto battles curse users.
In the third episode, Gojo and Geto took their struggle to the Time Vessel Association, raising the stakes even higher. Gojo finds out that Toji was born with a Heavenly Restriction during their fight at Jujutsu High. Simply put, he has incredible strength. By seemingly murdering Gojo, Toji demonstrates his strength.
Riko debates her desire for assimilation on the journey back to Tengen. Toji shoots and kills her as she reaches out to help Geto.
After Toji’s effort to absorb Geto’s cursed spirit backfires, Geto fights back and is ultimately defeated. Gojo uses the Hollow Purple assault against Toji after he has been healed by the Reverse Cursed technique. He uses his newfound skill to slay Toji by destroying half of his body. Toji, in his final moments, tells Gojo that the Zenin Clan will buy his son. Geto and Gojo reconcile at a Time Vessel Association church towards the end of the fifth episode, where they discuss whether or not to kill the cult members.
A year has passed since the events of the Hidden Inventory prologue arc, during which Geto committed various horrific actions, including the massacre of an entire town. Now when he’s on death row, he faces up against Gojo, who is helpless to defend himself against his erstwhile friend. Next, Geto is officially installed as the new leader of the Star Religious Group. Gojo wakes up at the end of the episode in the present day, reunited with Yuji, Nobara, and Megumi, the usual suspects.
In the present day, the Shibuya Incident storyline begins with the nomination of Yuji, Nobara, and Megumi (together with Maki Zen’in and Panda) as first-year sorcerers. We also meet Yoko, a girl who used to go to school with Yuji and secretly has a thing for him. Mechamaru/Muta is revealed to be the traitor stated during the season one finale.
Then, in a stunning change of events, Mahito kills Muta and a curtain descends over Shibuya, enclosing everyone inside. Gojo finally goes behind the curtain as the programme concludes.
Yuji confronts a Grasshopper Curse at Shibuya Station and easily dispatches it as the Shibuya Incident progresses. Jogo and Hanami are playing a waiting game with Gojo, who becomes sick of being teased and killed by Jogo after a while. He takes them seriously enough to take off the blindfold and prepares himself for a genuine fight.
After killing Hanami, Gojo is approached by his former buddy Geto, whom we (and Gojo) learn is under the spell of the sorcerer Kenjaku. Gojo is also caught in the Prison Realm’s clutches, and Yuji is made aware of this fact.
Gojo’s hand suffocates the body that Kenjaku is controlling, allowing Geto to make a partial escape. The sorcerer, Gojo, is trapped inside the Prison Realm and can only rely on Yuji to communicate his plight to the other teams in the Shibuya area.
Ensemble of Season 2’s Jujutsu Kaisen
In the first five episodes, the Hidden Inventory/Premature Death storyline played a major role, with a focus on Goto (Yuichi Nakamura) and Geto (Takahiro Sakurai). Shoko (Aya Endo), Kento Nanami (Kenjiro Nanami), Mei Mei (Kotono Mitsuishi), Utahime Iori (Yoko Hikasa), Riko (Anna Nagase), and Toji (Takehito Koyasu) are some of the other characters featured in the arc.
As the season progresses, the Shibuya Incident will play a larger role in the lives of the modern-day protagonists of Jujutsu Kaisen, such as Yuji (Junya Enoki), Nobara (Asami Seto), and Megumi (Yuma Uchida).
The Shibuya Incident storyline is previewed in the second season premiere trailer for Jutsu Kaisen.
In conjunction with Jump Festa, the first trailer for season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen was made available to the public. Even without any actual footage, the Japanese teaser is tantalising since it shows quick glimpses of several of the season’s important players.
We’ve moved on to the Shibuya Incident, though. Curious as to what will happen next? of order to whet your appetite for the next chapter of Yuji, Nobara, and Megumi’s escapades, the new Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 trailer has arrived. Here it is for your viewing pleasure.
Can I skip Season 1 of Jujutsu Kaisen if I don’t see the movie first?
Definitely something we’d suggest. The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film serves as a prologue to the main series and as a source of inspiration for the second season.
Swordsman Yuta Okkotsu is the main character of the film, and he will grow in importance throughout the rest of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime series (minor spoilers). He’s also one of the most well-known figures in the manga, so you should check it out to find out why everyone’s talking about him.
After the credits roll, there is a scene that establishes what will happen next in the anime. The plot centres on Yuta’s return to Japan and integration into the series proper.
It’s important to finish the set, and this book does so by expanding on the world and the curse-heavy premise of the universe, while still telling a gripping story in its own right.
It’s probably not essential, so you can skip it if you’re really pushed for time, but we highly recommend it.
How can I find a place to view Jujutsu Kaisen?
Crunchyroll presently hosts all 24 episodes of the first season of Jujutsu Kaisen, as well as the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie, for those who need to get caught up. On Thursdays, new episodes debut.
