Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 continues to garner quite the attention from anime fans for its unique but stellar animation and additional sequences not there in the original manga.
Manga author Gege Akutami too is a fan of the adaptation, as he praises a particular shot of Episode 2 where the curse users eating Takoyaki (which resembled Gojo’s six eyes) on the boat. He states that it was an impressive way to adapt that scene from the manga in the anime.
Akutami congratulates the director of that scene Mr. Takada and remarks he can do it all!
Mr. Takada worked on some cutscenes for Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 and designed some of the characters in Jujutsu Kaisen 0 theatrical film.
This was all stated in Akutami’s single page sketch on Episode 2 where he drew Toji Fushiguro spending all his money on ramen and fried rice. Perhaps it comes from his habit of squandering all his earnings as soon as he receives them.

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.
