The stage greeting event for the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 anime film announced a second season on Saturday. The new season is scheduled to air in 2023.

The anime film adapting Akutami Gege's prequel manga opened in theaters in Japan on December 24 last year, grossing over 10.46 billion yen (approximately US$90.7 million).

Jump GIGA ran the prequel manga from April to July in 2017. Shueisha published the manga as volume zero the following December. VIZ Media released the volume in English under the title Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Jujutsu High last January.

Gege began serializing the supernatural action sequel manga in Weekly Shounen Jump in March 2018. Shueisha shipped the 18th volume on December 25 last year. Jujutsu Kaisen has a cumulative 60 million copies of its volumes in circulation, including digital editions.

The television anime by animation studio MAPPA aired in 24 episodes in Fall 2020, adapting up to the beginning of the eighth volume. Crunchyroll simulcast the anime with subtitles and subsequently streamed dubbed versions in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, and Russian.

VIZ Media simulpubs the manga digitally with the Japanese release through its Shounen Jump service and shipped the 14th volume on February 2=1. The 15th volume will go on sale on April 5. Shueisha's Manga Plus platform also began simulpublishing the manga in English in January 2019.

Jujutsu Kaisen won the Grand Prize at the Tokyo Anime Award Festival 2022 in the television category.

UwU. Seems like its time for Gojou's past.
24 episodes? Perhaps Shibuya arc has a possibility too.
I forgot how long Gojou's arc is.

MAPPA employees are screaming right now 💀

Caught up to the manga about 2 weeks ago and man, I'm not ready for what we're about to get in this season. If MAPPA can do this upcoming content justice, this season is going to be nonstop fire!!!
No one hates anime more than anime fans.

Wow this piece of trash got another season, huh?

Between the boring characters and its generic plot, this show had nothing going for it. Of course, thats not stopping anime fans from eating it up. Its a generic shonen, after all.

I'll bet you they'll kill off a few characters for shock value. Guarantee it.

Not surprising at all. Really loved aesthetics of this show. Hopefully, this season finally has something that sets it apart from ocean of generic battle shonen...or not.

Was always coming, though how much they will adapt that's the question.

Also there's a chance of JJK and CSM being in the same season... well not too much for GOAT Mappa I guess.

RIP MAPPA animators

First season was kinda underwhelming aside from the action. But I heard a good arc is coming up, so let’s hope for the best.

1st season was pretty mediocre and underwhelming, the only good thing was the animation.
Even the soundtrack was pretty forgettable.

Not surprised at all. If the director is the same (most likely) then this season is going to have animation just as good as the first one since he manages to bring in some really good freelancers.

Hardly a surprise, this. But I’m still looking forward to it.

Impeccable timing, I must say though. It was just yesterday or the day before that the winners of the TAAF Anime Awards were announced.

Pretty expected, especially given the timing of the announcement not too long after the movie release in Japan. Not a fan of it whatsoever so I'm nowhere near excited for it but good to see a sequel for it I guess. Hopefully MAPPA aren't straining themselves yet again with so many releases like Chainsaw Man, Jigokuraku to name a couple still to release.

OMG! YES! I mean, we all knew it was going to get a second season eventually because the manga is popular. Haven't read the manga, so everything is going to be a surprise for me. Loved the first season (which I've watched twice). But waiting for over a year for the second season to drop does sting a bit, since it's such a long wait. Definitely made my day regardless. Still need to watch the movie, though.

Yeah no way this is gonna adapt the Shibuya arc if we go by the pacing of the first season which was really great unless the season is longer than 2 cours.

Which it might be I guess. But judging by how they adapted Attack on Titan, I don't think it would be.

To be honest, I'm not a super-hardcore fan of Jujutsu Kaisen but this show was fun, so I could give it a shot. It's just that I have a million other TV shows and movies to catch up on and I like watching them long after their respective hype trains and hate bandwagons have left the station so I can form my own opinions about them.

Meh, whatever. This show will be here even after I'm done with my other stuff.

This is hype, ngl. JJK is legitimately the only recent and/or ongoing Shounen I genuinely enjoy right now. Good timing with the movie’s upcoming international release as well. The upcoming Shibuya Arc is gonna be mad hype for sure.

On the flip side, praying for those 200+ employees over there at MAPPA. Hope they can remember the meaning of “sleep” one day soon.a

They’ll definitely get to at least half of the Shibuya arc (assuming a 24 ep season). The Gojo’s past arc will likely only take about 6 eps at most (it’s about 15 chapters, most episodes adapt 2-3 chapters at least).

They probably won’t be able to do the whole Shibuya arc cause it’s enormous (approx 70 chapters) but we’ll for sure get a good chunk of it.

There’s absolutely no way they’d spend an entire season in the past, imho.

MAPPA is returning to his old self a Madhouse, if they keep picking animes right and left, don't be shocked when they start to fall apart in 2-3 years.
