Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 has become a major success for MAPPA studios, garnering critical acclaim worldwide.
However, the season hasn’t been without its controversies. From forcing animators to sign an NDA to an animator’s meltdown on Twitter from the pressure, fans have been vocal about their concern for the animators.
In a recent comment, author Gege Akutami said “I hope the people who have worked so hard to make this experience and animation possible be repaid more & more…is all I say!!”.
Akutami Gege wishes JJK animators are repaid for their hard work in his latest comment:

About Jujutsu Kaisen
In October 2020, Mappa adapted the manga into a TV anime that ran for 24 episodes.
The second season will run for two cours consecutively starting July 6 and cover the Hidden Inventory Arc in the first cour.
The first cour has already ended, and the second cour began on August 31 and covers the Shibuya Incident Arc.
Crunchyroll describes season two as:
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.
