Here Are Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Spoilers:
Promotions For The Trio
Jujutsu Kaisen’s first season ends on a high note despite all the gory, exorcist-themed terror of its combat scenes. Aoi Todo and Mei Mei’s recommendation that the three of them be given Grade 1 classification is the icing on the friendship between the main trio, which is already destined to become famous, joining the ranks of Naruto, Pokémon, and others.
This decision was made after Principal Gakukaji realized that the sorcery world needed all the assistance it could get to fight the numerous unusual special grade Curses that were emerging. Due to their impressive performances during the Exchange Competition, Maki and Panda’s names are also included with those of the other three. It’s possible that the Principal will refuse to promote the bright young student because he called for Itadori’s death during that same event, but Sukuna vessel or not, Itadori’s development has been nothing short of remarkable. Maybe in Season 2, the Principal will change his perspective.
However, a phone call from Gojo to Megumi asking him, Nobara and Itador on a “top-secret assignment” is the most overt setup for the popular anime’s second installment. This cliffhanger conclusion could very well be followed by the start of the second season.
Itadori Vs Choso
Eso and Kechizu were two triplets who made their debut in the Cursed Womb: Death Painting episode that wraps off season one. Eso and Kechizu are slain by Itadori and Nobara, while Choso, the third brother is still alive. In reality, we learn that he has allied himself with Mahito and Geto, two of the anime’s key villains who were also responsible for providing the Curses with human vessels.
While his siblings battle the first-year students for their life, Choso and his two new allies enjoy a leisurely game of chess. He is aware of the killing of Eso and Kechizu, though, and will undoubtedly desire to get revenge on Nobara and Itadori for their heinous deeds. Mahito and Geto are still working on bringing down Satoro Gojo.
Itadori will find himself facing up against Choso, the elder brother, in Jujitsu Kaisen Season 2. This fight, which features another blood-manipulator, is fierce and, well, gory, but that’s not the major reason fans want an animated version. The fight’s primary action takes place in a Shibuya station restroom that is flooded. Imagine it drawn by MAPPA! Reading the manga alone was a true delight with some amazing water paintings. One of the top studios right now animating water dripping from taps and the ceiling as Itadori battles a Special Grade curse? We anticipate this to be a breathtaking visual feast, and we cannot wait.
Sukuna Growing Powerful
After defeating the two brothers, Itadori and Nobara meet up with Megumi Fushiguro, who had just finished a difficult battle against the Finger Bearer in the two previous episodes. Emerging bleeding, bruised, and victorious, he successfully retrieves the Sukuna finger that perhaps the Death Paintings were assigned. The trio intends to let Akari, their handler, seal the cursed item, but Sukuna has other ideas.
The King of Curses appears as a mouth on Itadori’s hand and eats the finger as soon as Itadori takes it for safekeeping on his behalf. The incident is primarily staged for laughs as Itadori’s classmates chastise him for being so irresponsible, but in reality, it serves as a sad reminder of Jujutsu Kaisen’s very depressing central theme: one day, Sukuna will probably eat all of his missing fingers, and Itadori would either be lost forever or perish while attempting to stop the greatest Curse from going berserk. For the time being, this most recent addition to Sukuna’s finger total only signifies an even more potent archenemy for Season 2.
**Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Manga Spoilers ahead**
Have you ever wondered what Gojou “The Strongest” Satoru was like in high school for Jujutsu? Fans may now learn how Gojou became the greatest sorcerer as well as how some other important characters got to where they are today thanks to a flashback arc that was made possible by Gojou dozing off and dreaming of the past.
Fans get a chance to learn more about Tengen-sama, the barrier builder, during this time. It is revealed that Tengen-sama must merge with a certain human vessel every several hundred years in order to keep his humanity. This is in addition to the fact that he is immortal because of his cursed technique. With that, viewers see Suguru Geto, who was with Gojou before he became into the villain from Season 1, given the assignment of locating, securing, and delivering the young woman who will serve as Tengen’s subsequent human vessel to combine with.
Fans will witness Gojou’s immensely powerful techniques on this mission as a result of a deadly encounter with Megumi Fushiguro’s father, Toji. With his appealing character design and calm attitude, he’s expected to make an entrance that drives fans crazy. Toji is certain to become yet another popular shonen dad. Toji is the first person to ever come the closest to killing Gojou, even going above and beyond to cut him in the neck with a cursed knife, aside from his appearance and manner. This season will undoubtedly begin with a bang because of the arguments and conflicts between these two.
Large portions of Jujutsu High are destroyed during the epic battle between Gojo and Toji, which also features Gojo’s debut of the “Red” and “Purple” cursed techniques. Each of their two-part fights is equally gory and exciting, and we can’t wait to watch their confrontation come to life on our screens!
However, before this flashback arc concludes, viewers will see Suguru Geto fall and learn the reason for his change of loyalty. It will be painful to see one of the few persons Gojou saw as a friend turns into one of his greatest adversaries because he is the voice of truth to Gojou’s terrifying power.

Pre-Shibuya Incident Arc
Back in the present, the circumstances leading up to the “Shibuya Incident” offer a fantastic introduction to the storyline twists and bloody action to come. Manga readers learn that Mechamaru, the genius of the Kyoto sister school who controls puppets, is actually the mole. Kokichi Muta, a second-year student who is the human behind Mechamaru, is revealed to be physically restrained to a medicinal bath and chained to tubes that keep him alive.
However, it is revealed that Muta formed a legally binding vow arrangement with Geto and Mahito for info in exchange for Mahito healing his physical body, allowing him to leave this state of ongoing physical suffering and confinement and join his other classmates. Despite the agreement being carried through to the end, both sides meant to murder one another as soon as the conditions of the binding promise were satisfied.
But Mechamaru hasn’t lived in a bathtub his entire life for nothing! Mahito sees “Ultimate Mechamaru,” a massive robot that unleashes catastrophic strikes by channeling energy that has been cursed for many years. We are eager to see this fight animated just for the size of the combat itself and to witness the closest thing to a mech-fighting in Jujutsu Kaisen. Fans watch Geto and Mahito into the “Shibuya Incident” Arc after Muta and his army of Mechamaru have been defeated in a bloody fight. This arc is destined to rock the entire anime community.
The Shibuya Incident Arc
The “Shibuya Incident” Arc, which will undoubtedly take up most of Season 2, will not only give fans a chaotic plot packed with memorable moments, but also some of the best animation that animation studio giant MAPPA has ever produced. Without having to go through every last detail of the complete arc, let’s go over some of the crucial moments that will undoubtedly go down in anime history.
Let’s talk about those characters we encounter and those who stand out before we get to some matchups. On both sides throughout this arc, there are a lot of new faces as well as many returning ones, however certain characters get more time on screen than others. Toji, who appears via a possession cursed method, Jogo, the volcano head cursed spirit, Choso, the elder brother of the blood-wielding curse spirits from Season 1, Nanami, the former Jujutsu Sorcerer who assists Yuji in his battle with Mahito in Season 1, Dagon, the cursed soul whose domain Geto and Mahito hang out in on the seaside, and Sukuna are a few that really stand out.
With so many moving parts in this arc, MAPPA will undoubtedly have their work cut out for them. However, given that they handled every fight in Season 1 admirably, let’s take a look ahead at some of the match-ups fans may anticipate. When Gojou competes against Jogo, Mahito, Choso, and Hanami, fans quickly learn why Gojou is regarded as the finest. The fans will be treated to a moment resembling the goosebumps-inducing “Hollow Purple” sequence from Season 1 with his 0.2-second domain expansion.
Additionally, Toji engages in two significant battles, the first with the special-grade cursed Dagon and the latter with his son Megumi Fushiguro. Fans will enjoy seeing various well-known personalities struggle to control cursed spirits as he joins the battle with Dagon. Basically swooping in and eliminating Dagon by himself, Toji then turns his attention to Fushiguro. Until Toji rediscovers his humanity and kills himself in favor of Megumi, the battle between these two is one-sided.
Sukuna’s rage needs to be the final significant mention. When Sukuna awakens, he immediately starts annihilating cursed spirits and large portions of the city’s magical population. It will be amazing to see him battle Jogo and the shikigami Mahoraga. The later fight is even more amazing because it’s the first time fans get to watch Sukuna genuinely acknowledge his opponent and even suffer, even if only momentarily.
0.2 Seconds Domain Expansion
The “Shibuya Incident” arc, which has almost sixty chapters and is now the greatest arc in Jujutsu Kaisen, will certainly take up the majority of Season 2’s running time. At the center of the story’s action is Satoru Gojou, who is pitted against Hanami, Mahito, and Jogo at the Shibuya railway station’s basement while being surrounded by a large crowd of people who are celebrating Halloween.
There isn’t much Gojou can do to stop the carnage when Mahito unleashes a whole trainload of transmuted humans on the unaware crowd. He would be forced to battle people with disabilities because using his Domain Expansion would murder the non-Jujutsu civilians, at least, that is what the enemy believes!
To safely exorcise hundreds of transformed humans, Gojou utilizes his Limitless Domain Expansion for a carefully timed duration of just 0.2 seconds, temporarily paralyzing everyone in his area. What happens to a non-Jujutsu capable brain when it sees infinity? Several months’ worth of therapy. However, that must be preferable to be killed by a cursed spirit, we think!
Jogo Vs Fifteen Finger Sukuna
Curses should be aware by this point that Sukuna only cares about himself. Jogo, a lovable volcano-head, finds an unconscious Itadori at the top of the Shibuya Arc and feeds him 10 full fingers. With fifteen fingers in his stomach, Yuji Itadori unleashes a virtually full-powered Sukuna. Does Jogo receive gratitude from the most potent curser of all time for this present? Instead, the two engage in combat, during which a meteor partially destroys Shibuya.
The manga depicts this epic struggle between curses over several full-page spreads, frequently without dialogue or even sound effects, allowing the scale of the devastation to gradually become apparent. The struggle between Sukuna and Jogo, which is incredibly destructive, comes to a conclusion when Sukuna’s time spent controlling Itadori’s body finally runs out. Sukuna chooses to fight Jogo “fairly” by using fire-based curses. Itadori then experiences the horrifying horror of seeing Sukuna destroyed, and he feels more helpless than ever. This fight and its aftermath are our top choice among all the scenes we hope to see animated in Season 2.
