Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2

Things Are About To Get Dark

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2: What We Know

After a seemingly endless wait, Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 is weeks away, set to release on July 6, 2023. Season one ended in January 2021, and the film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 was released in America in March 2022. Both broke records in viewership and popularity, with the series now being one of the top Shonen series currently running. The manga has been ongoing, with sporadic breaks splitting the chapter releases. The manga is meant to end, according to author Gege Akutami, by the end of 2023. With all this in mind and season 2 being announced in February 2022, this season has a lot riding on its shoulders. 

Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will consist of twenty-five episodes. The finale of the first season covered up to chapter sixty-three, with the new season adapting chapter sixty-four and onward. The season will be cover two major story arcs, the first detailing Gojo Satoru’s past as a student of Jujutsu High and the second tackling the action-packed Shibuya Incident Arc. Both are extremely popular with fans, with Gojo’s past being one fans have yearned to see animated for years. Along with featuring more of Gojo Satoru, a fan favorite, the season will also contain more characters that have been operating on the sidelines and entirely new characters that are sure to bring exciting developments to the series. 

Gojo’s Past Arc: What’s to Come

A fan-favorite arc in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, Gojo’s Past Arc spans fourteen chapters portraying Gojo Satoru’s time as a Jujutsu High student, beginning in his second year. The story arc is set in the summer of 2006, a flashback and pivotal moment for Gojo and all other characters involved. In the arc, we see a young Gojo and his two classmates, Shoko Ieri and Geto Suguru. Shoko Ieri and Geto Suguru are not unfamiliar faces, with Shoko working at Jujutsu High and consistently using her healing cursed technique to heal injured students. She is also still a close friend of Gojo’s, a man who doesn’t have many. 

While Geto Suguru existed as a villain in season one (which can be an arguable point depending on which fan you ask), in season two, we see him alongside Gojo, his equal in strength and ability. This can be inferred just from the promotional material for season two by those who haven’t read the manga. In the trailer for season two, Geto and Gojo are close and familiar, bickering and calling each other by their family names, “Suguru” and “Satoru.” Geto corrects Gojo’s rudeness and brash words about not wanting to protect the weak and acts as the moral compass of the pair.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2

The trailer also contains flashbacks of Gojo and Geto in Okinawa, which was shown in Jujutsu Kaisen 0, as well before Gojo kills Geto at the end of the film. New characters, such as Toji Fushiguro, are revealed in both the trailers for the season and the released character designs. Toji announces that his family name is no longer “Zenin,” one belonging to one of the most powerful sorcerer clans in the series, but “Fushiguro,” which fans will know as the family name of Megumi. There is also a young girl named Riko, who Gojo and Geto are looking after. For those who haven’t read the manga, the reason behind this responsibility will be something to watch for. 

The arc will not only shed light on Gojo Satoru’s time as a student and what brought him to be the goofy strong teacher he presents himself as in season one, but it will also give more context about who Geto Suguru is. Season one presents him as an evil and powerful sorcerer, murky and operating in the shadows, with stitches across his forehead. Again, non-manga readers will have to wait and learn for themselves why there are no stitches to be seen on Geto in this flashback arc. In the film, he consistently taunts Gojo and reminds them of their shared past together while running a religious group and attacking Jujutsu High and its students. Even in battle, they each meant a great deal to each other, accompanied by their emotional farewells as Gojo killed him in the last minutes of Jujutsu Kaisen 0. How many episodes this arc will require is unknown, but with twenty-five episodes in the season, that leaves room for the Shibuya Incident Arc to be covered. 

Shibuya Incident Arc: What’s to Come

With as few spoilers as possible, the Shibuya Incident Arc is also a fan-favorite story arc of the manga for Jujutsu Kaisen. The arc takes place in Shibuya but begins with Gojo waking up from his reverie of the past and back with his students. It is revealed that there are two moles at Jujutsu High, leaning into the themes of corruption and power-hungry sorcerers that fans saw when Gojo dealt with the higher-ups in season one and Jujutsu Kaisen 0. The moles will be revealed and the conflict will escalate from there.

Staying in line with the villains of Jujutsu Kaisen inclined to launch attacks on holidays, there will be an attack from Mahito, Geto Suguru, and others on October 31st in Shibuya. The arc spans over fifty-seven chapters, so the second season will have to find a way to split off and end the series in a suitable way for it to pick up again in the following season. A cliffhanger is imminent, so expect an even more painful wait for season three!
