These new opening and ending sequences debuted with the anime’s sixth episode, which marks the start of the much-anticipated “Shibuya Incident Arc.” From July 6 to August 3, the first five episodes aired.
The main cast of the anime includes Junya Enoki as Yuji Itadori, Yuuma Uchida as Megumi Fushiguro, Asami Seto as Nobara Kugisaki, and Yuuichi Nakamura as Satoru Gojo.
Meanwhile, the staff includes Hiroshi Seko (returning) as series composer and scriptwriter, Tadashi Hiramatsu (also credited in season 1) and Sayaka Koiso (Jujutsu Kaisen 0 sub-character designer) as character designers, and Ryouta Aikei (Attack on Titan Final Season: The Final Chapters, Special 1 co-storyboard artist and unit director) as assistant director.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is based on Gege Akutami’s Shueisha-published manga, which debuted in 2018 and has 23 tankoubon volumes as of July 2023. The manga is described by Viz Media as follows:
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…
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2: The Shibuya Incident Arc is now streaming on Crunchyroll and Netflix.
