This announcement comes after the president of the MBS television channel, Yōichi Mushiaki, revealed on January 20 that there are still no concrete plans for a second season of Jujutsu Kaisen, although he suggested that something is on the way. Despite his words, and given the announcement of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime account, fans have begun to speculate through social networks that, finally, the confirmation of this long-awaited continuation of the series is closer than ever.
The first season of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime premiered in October 2020 and has the MAPPA studio in charge of its animated production. Sunghoo Park (The God of High School) was behind the direction. Along with him, Hiroshi Seko (Banana Fish) wrote and composed the script, while Tadashi Hiramatsu (Yuri!!! on Ice, Parasyte) was in charge of character design. For their part, Hiroaki Tsutsumi, Yoshimasa Terui and Arisa Okehazama are credited as responsible for the musical composition.

Normally in Areajugones we usually echo all kinds of cosplays, whether from the world of manganime or video games. To highlight one or the other, we look at details such as the use of makeup, the style of the hairstyles or the clothing that has been made. I've seen a lot of great characterizations in the past few months, but what about a collaborative Jujutsu Kaisen cosplay?.
I don't think I've ever talked to you about a cosplay that brings together two artists at the same time, and that's why I want to bring you the great work of users xxtuki and zumiii_zhr, who focused on recreating the great friendship between Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto, two important characters in Jujutsu Kaisen. These innocent moments are part of the plot of the movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0, and since it is not yet available in the West, we have to settle for this type of work to calm our hype.
These Japanese cosplayers came together to do some good, because they often hit it off. This collaborative Jujutsu Kaisen 0 cosplay is excellent on every level, from the choice of clothing to the poses, the hairstyles, the editing, the camera angles, and even the facial expressions. It truly feels like a kind of 'live-action' of this prequel.
The website for Shueisha publisher's Jump J-Books imprint revealed on Friday that the animated film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will receive a light novel. This adaptation will go on sale in Japan on December 24, the same day that the feature film based on the manga by Gege Akutami will be released in theaters.
The writer Ballad Kitaguni, who has already been in charge of the rest of the Jujutsu Kaisen novels released to date, is the one who writes this Jujutsu Kaisen 0 novel based on the script that Hiroshi Seko signed for the film. For his part, Gege Akutami is credited as the author of the original idea.
Regarding the animated film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 on which this novel is based, its story takes place one year before the events of Jujutsu Kaisen. As in the anime series, the MAPPA studio is also in charge of production. Sunghoo Park (The God of High School) is located behind the address. Along with him, Hiroshi Seko (Banana Fish) writes and composes the script, while Tadashi Hiramatsu (Yuri!!! on Ice, Parasyte) is in charge of character design. For their part, Hiroaki Tsutsumi, Yoshimasa Terui and Arisa Okehazama are credited as responsible for the musical composition.
As for the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, Gege Akutami began publication in Shueisha's Weekly Shônen Jump magazine in March 2018. Currently, the work is open with 17 compiled volumes released in Japan. Volume 0 of the series was published in Jump GIGA magazine. It was initially intended to be a self-contained story, but readers liked it so much that Shueisha publishers offered Akutami to serialize the work, this time for Shônen Jump.
The original Jujutsu Kaisen manga is being published in Spain by Norma Editorial, which has edited and translated into Spanish both Volume 0 and the first 12 volumes of the series. The thirteenth will go on sale on December 10. Likewise, the publisher has recently announced the licenses for the two light novels that Jujutsu Kaisen has, as well as the fanbook. In addition to the manga, the animated series has also arrived, being available through the anime streaming service Crunchyroll.
Fans of Japanese animation imploded with excitement this week when Crunchyroll surprisingly announced that they will soon be released in Latin America (in addition to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands and Africa) the long-awaited movie that kicks off the entire amazing saga of Jujutsu Kaisen.
Of course, as we reported, the film does have a release date in the United States and Canada for March 18, so we assume that it will not be longer than May for the film to be distributed in practically all regions of the world ( except Asia obviously, since Jujutsu Kaisen 0 premiered in Japan on December 24, placing itself among the 50 highest grossing films in that country).
We all know about Sony's purchase of Crunchyroll, which took place at the end of last year in a $1.175 million dollar deal. And at the time we thought that a merger between Funimation and Crunchyroll would be imminent but nothing happened!
What happens then? It draws our attention that not even a month ago Funimation began to move a powerful distribution muscle in theaters in Latin America with the long-awaited trick My Hero Academia: World Heroes Mission (which in fact continues to debut in other Spanish-speaking countries this same weekend).
As anime and platform specialists, we are intrigued by this move, especially with Jujutsu Kaisen 0 being such an important and fan-acclaimed movie. And although the first season of Gege Akutami's work is present in both the Funimation and Crunchyroll catalogs. Could it be that this movement is "starting to sing" that the merger will be in favor of leaving Crunchy as a single huge platform to world level?.
After all, it still doesn't make sense for the only two streaming platforms 100% dedicated to anime (without underestimating the small ones, but to be frank, it's not the same thing) to compete with each other, when it could well be a single force with greater significance at the level world… and stronger competition against the increasingly influential Netflix (with its own anime division already in Japan).
In any case, we will have to keep an eye on this development… and for now, save up for our ticket to see Jujutsu Kaisen 0 in theaters this spring, if this damn pandemic allows it!.
