The world-hit Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 anime is ready to enter a whole new era with a new arc “Shibuya Incident” following its adaptation of Gojo’s Past arc. And in order to set the stage for the launch of the new arc on August 31, there will be no new episode on August 24.
The second season of Jujutsu Kaisen premiered on July 6, and spans two cours, adapting both the “Hidden Inventory / Premature Death” arc and the “Shibuya Incident” arc of Gege Akutami’s original manga.
Set around the bustling Shibuya station during Halloween, the Shibuya Incident arc unfolds an unprecedented large-scale battle between jujutsu sorcerers and cursed users. On October 31, 2018, suddenly, a curtain dropped, trapping many civilians in a highly complex magical barrier. It becomes apparent that the top brass must decide on an intervention, led solely by Gojo, to minimize the damage. The battle line is drawn between the assembled jujutsu sorcerers and the cursed users and curses.
The announcement also comes with a new trailer showcasing the struggle within Shibuya as the large-scale battle is about to begin. The trailer also previews the new opening theme song “SPECIALZ” by King Gnu.
