As of its recent conclusion on December 28, 2023, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 has wrapped up its 23-episode run, leaving fans both satisfied and eagerly anticipating the next installment. Season 2 brilliantly portrayed the Hidden Inventory/Premature Death and Shibuya Incident arcs, both of which brought intense action, character development, and gripping storylines to the forefront.

The first part of the season focused on Gojo and Geto’s past at Jujutsu High, delving into their history and revealing the turning point that fractured their friendship. Riko Amanai’s tragic death significantly contributed to Geto’s descent into darkness, setting the stage for the events to come.

The Hidden Inventory/Premature Death arc comprised the initial five episodes, showcasing gripping confrontations and the introduction of pivotal elements like Toji Fushiguro and other Zen’in clan members. Notably, Gojo’s intense battle against Toji, culminating in the deployment of his newly unlocked Hollow Technique: Purple, left a lasting impact on viewers.

The season then transitioned seamlessly into the much-anticipated Shibuya Incident arc with episode 6, marking a shift to the present timeline and reuniting viewers with beloved main characters like Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara. This arc plunged viewers into a whirlwind of intense action, sorcery battles, and high-stakes conflicts. The Shibuya Incident, masterminded by pseudo-Geto, resulted in Gojo’s sealing and the abandonment of Tokyo’s twenty-three wards to become a haven for cursed spirits.

Throughout this arc, audiences were treated to iconic battles, including Yuji vs. Choso, Megumi facing his resurrected father Toji, Sukuna’s clash with Mahoraga, and the gripping showdown between Yuji and Mahito.

Season 2 concluded with its 23rd episode, leaving viewers at a climactic moment. Yuji manages to defeat Mahito with Todo’s assistance, but Pseudo-Geto intervenes, preventing Yuji from exorcising Mahito for good. The episode closes with Gojo still sealed, Yuki Tsukumo joining the battlefield, and Pseudo-Geto and Uraume escaping with the Prison Realm.

Fortunately, fans need not wait indefinitely for more Jujutsu Kaisen. Studio MAPPA has confirmed Jujutsu Kaisen Season 3, set to adapt the Culling Game arc from Gege Akutami’s original manga. This forthcoming arc promises new adventures, featuring the return of Yuta Okkotsu from Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Jujutsu High, the prequel series. A teaser has been released, teasing the excitement and anticipation for the upcoming saga.
