The highly anticipated second season of Jujutsu Kaisen, which adapts Gojo’s past story as a student, is just a couple of days away from its official premiere. Despite this, it seems that some fans couldn’t resist their curiosity and decided to open their Christmas presents early.
The first episode of the series, including the opening and ending theme songs, has already been leaked, as confirmed by many users on various social media platforms.
The second season of Jujutsu Kaisen will consist of 23 episodes in total, and it has a rather unusual release schedule. The first five episodes will be dedicated to the Hidden Inventory Arc of the manga, while the Shibuya Incident Arc will be depicted in 18 anime episodes.
After the Hidden Inventory Arc, there will be two recap episodes and a one-week broadcast break before the commencement of the next arc.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 1 Leaks
The first episode of Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 reportedly has a runtime of 23 minutes and 55 seconds. The leak also includes the opening and ending theme songs for the Hidden Inventory Arc.
A noticeable change is expected in the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen, all thanks to a new director. Sunghoo Park, the director of the first season, has moved on to open their own anime studio. The second season will now be directed by Shota Goshozono. This change could bring a different feel and look to the show.
Without English subtitles, you wouldn’t be able to comprehend the episode. Many fans on social media are urging others not to watch the episode until its official release, as it not only results in a financial loss for the studio, but is also disrespectful to those who worked tirelessly on it.
The first episode of Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 is slated for release on July 6 at 23:56 JST. Fans in the US can watch the first episode on Thursday, July 6, 2023, at 7:56 AM Pacific Time. The second season of Jujutsu Kaisen will be available for streaming on Crunchyroll.
In case you are not familiar with the series, Crunchyroll describes it as follows:
“Yuji Itadori is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life. One day, to save a classmate who has been attacked by curses, he eats the finger of Ryomen Sukuna, taking the curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares one body with Ryomen Sukuna.
Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is admitted to Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights the curses… and thus begins the heroic tale of a boy who became a curse to exorcise a curse, a life from which he could never turn back.”
