March 20 marks the birthday of Itadori Yuuji from Jujutsu Kaisen, and MAPPA has commemorated with an awesome illustration! You can immediately check it out on the studio’s official Twitter account:
In addition, there will be new items at the MAPPA online shop to commemorate the occasion. There’s an acrylic key chain, a clear file, as well as art canvases added. You can also read more information at the official site. (In Japanese though)
Besides Yuuji’s birthday, the anime released episode 24 today and went trending online. It comes out on Crunchyroll soon and it will definitely be amazing, and that will only leave 1 more episode for the anime. Hopefully we get a season 2 announcement soon!
Itadori Yuuji isn’t the first to get a special birthday illustration from MAPPA. Gojou-sensei also got one back on his birthday (December 7th), and the franchise was also trending back then. It’s one of the most popular shows at the moment, and it frequently ranks high on Anime Corner’s weekly polls, so make sure to vote for it again after today’s episode!
And if you haven’t started started the anime yet, the story goes:
Although Yuji Itadori looks like your average teenager, his immense physical strength is something to behold! Every sports club wants him to join, but Itadori would rather hang out with the school outcasts in the Occult Research Club. One day, the club manages to get their hands on a sealed cursed object. Little do they know the terror they’ll unleash when they break the seal…
