JUJUTSU KAISEN Season 2 anime revealed the first trailer for the Shibuya Incident Arc yesterday, and the video already has over 25 million views combined on the official uploads on X (Twitter) and YouTube in less than 1 day. The anime will continue next Thursday on August 31 with the 2nd part of the season, which will run for 18 episodes. King Gnu is performing the theme song “SPECIALZ,” featured in the new trailer.
The second season of JUJUTSU KAISEN has aired 5 episodes so far, covering the Hidden Inventory/Premature Death arc. It is now in the final week of its 3-week break. The anime is set to enter the Shibuya Incident arc in the second part through 18 episodes. Updated character designs for Geto, Mahito and Choso were also revealed for the arc.
Besides the ongoing season, studio MAPPA also animated both the 24-episode first season and the prequel 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.
