Jujutsu Kaisen Anime Director Is Leaving Mappa Studio

Published on March 18th, 2022

Studio Mappa has been in the news almost every other month. Sometimes it is for bad reasons like employees complaining about overwork, the other time for good reasons like opening up a new studio for CGI department. Mappa is again a topic of discussion in the anime community because of an important employee leaving the studio.

Sunghoo Park is a popular Japanese director who has worked for Mappa Studio on projects like Jujutsu Kaisen and The God of Highschool anime. In March 2021, Sunghoo Park founded a new animation studio called ‘E&H Production’, which currently has 10 employees. The production studio recently released a recruitment information revealing that they are looking for new talent.

The company’s introduction also stated that they want to challenge original animation works and new production processes, not limited to traditional animation production, and intends to shoot in the fields of game engines, VR, and real shooting.

Sunghoo directed both season 1 and the Jujutsu Kaisen movie 0. Jujutsu Kaisen fans are worried because it is still unclear whether Sunghoo Park will direct the upcoming Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 or not. It should be pointed out that Sunghoo was hired as a freelancer by Mappa, and not as a permanent employee.

If Mappa studio doesn’t hire the same director for season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen, do you think it will a huge impact on the anime? Let us know your opinion in the comment section.

  1. I think it will effect the overall production quality also the new director could make changes in character designs and aka action sequence looks.
    If they really are going to change it I think someone like chengxi Huang an Chinese animator who also directed boruto episode 65 etc. Is a very good choice lemme know in the reply which animator do you think could make an these anime

  2. Sheesh all I gotta say is don’t mess up the characters and plot of the anime it’s way too good to have someone change it all bc they think it’ll be better this way
