Shueisha also publishes the manga on its MANGA Plus service.

The Jujutsu Kaisen anime made its debut in October 2020 with a total of 24 episodes.

Additionally, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, a film adaptation of Gege Akutami’s manga prequel story titled Jujutsu Kaisen 0 premiered in Japan in December 2021.

The television anime will return for a second season, set to premiere on July 6.
