Jujutsu Kaisen Second Season Release Date
Looking back, the announcement of the second season was made on February 12, 2022. That time, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie was aired in theaters and it got huge positive responses among fans.
After a year of waiting, the staff has released the exact date of the premiere. Jujutsu no Kaisen’s Second Season is set to premiere on July 6, 2023.
Shota Goshonzono is replacing Shunghoo Park as the director. Do note that Shota was responsible for directing the first season of Jujutsu Kaisen on episodes 8 and 17.
At the same time, additional cast members were introduced. Though looking at the visual and PV, not all of the cast was revealed. They are:
- Anna Nagase as Riko Amanai
- Takehito Koyasu as Toji Fushiguro
Jujutsu Kaisen is planning to attend MAPPA Stage 2023 on May 21, 2023. There should be new information leaked at that time. Just stay tuned!
Jujutsu Kaisen Second Season Trailer and Visual
It’s not MAPPA if they don’t create edgy PV. Looking at the trailer, we can see that the second season will be up to a high standard.
The PV shows the story of Satoru Gojo when he was still a student in Jujutsu high. The relationship between Getou Suguru and Gojou has been foreshadowed in the last movie from a year ago.
But the twisted personality of Getou is nowhere in sight in the PV. We can assume that the second season will start by filling the empty block left by the movie version.
The visual trailer was leaked a day before AnimeJapan 2023 was held. It shows five characters Gojou, Getou, Amanai Riko (high school girl), her guardian, and Touji Fushigurou (Megumi’s father).
If you think about it, the plot of Jujutsu Kaisen is moving backward. The movie is a prequel to the first season and, now, the second season is the prequel to the movie.
But rest assured, this arc will be one of two arcs that will span two cour. So, the timeline will be on track again after we know how the relationship of this, seemed, best friend turns sour.
As usual, Crunchyroll is streaming the series. From the previous record, the second season may have an English dub presented not long after its premiere.
