“Jujutsu Kaisen ss 2”: release date, announcement

Critics praised not only the original source, but also season 1 of anime adaptation. The high quality of the drawing, the full disclosure of the characters, a bright storyline that leads in a strictly defined direction to its development is noted. Therefore, we can firmly say that the director’s competent approach to business will put the anime series “Jujutsu Kaisen” on a par with such popular projects as “Tokyo Ghoul“, “Bleach” or “Blue Exorcist“.

At the moment, the release date for the season 2 of the anime “Jujutsu Kaisen” has not been officially set, but critics are sure that we will not have to wait long for the premiere of new episodes. Most likely, we will see the continuation of adaptation no earlier than the end of 2021.

Plot

“Help people you can help. Don’t think about your own benefit. Save those you can. Die among people. And, most importantly, don’t be like me.” These dying words of Yūji Itadori’s grandfather haunted him for a long time. They clearly stuck into the guy’s memory. But only with time will he begin to understand their deep meaning …

Itadori never differed from his peers, except that he ran well. But the athletic club at school did not interest him at all. Itadori’s passion is a place where no one will force him to do something. So he got to the Occult Club: summoning spirits and talking with them, hiking in “ghostly” places, etc. He loved to spend time with his (only two) friends. But one day everything changed.

Itadori found a strange box with an unknown object on the school grounds and gave it to his friends from the Club. Having removed the seals, which eventually turned into paper, the guys release the Curse. And in order to save them, the guy has no choice but to swallow this amulet in an unequal battle. Now he is forced to share his body with an insidious creature who wants to get out and sow evil. Is there a way to stop this chaos or the only way out for Itadori is death?..
