Takahiro Sakurai is a well-known voice actor who voiced Giyu Tomioka in the Demon Slayer series, Arataka Reigen in Mob Psycho 100, Rohan Kishibe in the Jojo series, and more.

Studio MAPPA is animating the Jujutsu Kaisen anime series based on Gege Akutami’s manga of the same name serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine since March 2018. The series released the first compiled volume in July of the year and surpassed 70 million circulating copies as of the release of the 20th volume in August 2022. The anime’s first season aired from October 2020 to March 2021 with a total of 24 episodes, along with Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie which premiered on December 24, 2021, in Japan. A second season is currently in production and is scheduled to begin broadcasting in 2023 with consecutive two cours.

Viz Media licensed the manga for English releases and will release the 18th volume on December 21, 2022. The official website describes the plot of volume 1 as:
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…
