With the release of episode 8 of Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, the Shibuya Incident Arc has officially begun, and to commemorate the event, Japanese culture magazine SWITCH has Nanami, Yuji, and Megumi on the cover of their magazine’s October issue.
The cover was drawn by MAPPA, who are responsible for the second season. The magazine will also take a look at 10 scenes, encapsulating the series’ progress so far.
It will also include interviews with voice actors, Junya Enoki (Yuji), Yuma Uchida (Megumi), Asami Seto (Nobara), Kenjiro Tsuda (Nanami), Nobunaga Shimazaki (Mahito), Yuichi Nakamura (Gojo), and the staff members.
Gege Akutami started its serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March 2018.
The author shared that he plans to end the manga by the end of this year.
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.
