Takehito Koyasu joined the voice cast as one of the fan-favorite characters Toji Fushiguro, and Anna Nagase joined as Riko Amanai. The main cast is reprising their roles. They include Takahiro Sakurai as Suguru Geto, Yuichi Nakamura as Satoru Gojo, and Aya Endo as Shoko Ieiri. They’ve also released the new character designs for several of the characters.
Studio MAPPA animated both the 24-episode first season and movie for the franchise. Akutami Gege writes and draws the original manga, which is licensed by VIZ Media in English. Crunchyroll streams both the anime and movie, and they describe the story:
Yuji Itadori is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life. One day, to save a classmate who has been attacked by curses, he eats the finger of Ryomen Sukuna, taking the curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares one body with Ryomen Sukuna. Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is admitted to Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights the curses… and thus begins the heroic tale of a boy who became a curse to exorcise a curse, a life from which he could never turn back.
