Jujutsu Kaisen is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Gege Akutami.
Gege Akutami started its serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March 2018.
In October 2020, Mappa adapted the manga into a TV anime that ran for 24 episodes.
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.
