Fans of the highly rated Jujutsu Kaisen have been clamouring to hear when Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 would be coming to Crunchyroll. The anime series previously won three awards at the Crunchyroll Anime Awards in 2021: Anime of the Year, Best Antagonist, and Best Ending Sequence.
The prequel film, Jujustu Kaisen 0, received the Best Anime Film during this year’s Crunchyroll Anime Awards and went on to earn over $180 million at the global box office. So it’s safe to say that if you’ve never watched or heard about this series before, it’s worth checking out.
When is the Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 release date?
Viewers can expect the new season to release exclusively on Crunchyroll starting July 6. Fans can prepare for an immersive experience as the series delves into Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto’s lives, shedding light on their pasts.
This sophomore season is split into two consecutive cours (span of anime episodes). The first part dives deep into the ‘Hidden Inventory/Premature Death’ arc, unearthing the backstory of Gojo and Geto’s early days.
This is the innocent spring that the two strongest lost forever. Itadori Yuji took Ryomen Sukuna into his own body in June 2018. Okkotsu Yuta freed Orimoto Rika from her curse in December 2017. And now it’s spring 2006. Gojo Satoru and Geto Suguru, two peerless jujutsu sorcerers from Jujutsu High, have been given two missions by Tengen, an immortal known as the cornerstone of the jujutsu community. One mission is the escorting and erasure of the “Star Plasma Vessel”, Amanai Riko, the girl chosen as the best match to merge with Tengen.
So the two of them set out on their escort mission in order to keep the jujutsu community going, but an assassin calling himself Fushiguro interferes in an attempt to assassinate the Star Plasma Vessel. The pasts of Gojo and Geto, the ones who would later be known as the most powerful jujutsu sorcerer and the most evil curse user, are about to be revealed.—Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 synopsis
