What is season 2 about?
Gojo’s arc of season 2 takes place in 2006, approximately 10 years prior to the present-day events of the first season, and follows Gojo’s time as a second-year student at Tokyo Jujutsu High.
Alongside a young Geto, Satoru is tasked with escorting the Star Plasma Vessel to jujutsu sorcerer elder Master Tengen while fending off curse user group Q and the Star Religious Group the Time Vessel Association.
The second half of the season will revolve around the Shibuya Incident arc, but you can catch up on episodes 1-5 in the meantime.
In a four-star review of Jujutsu Kaisen‘s season 2 premiere, NME wrote: “Of course, Jujutsu Kaisen is greatly aided by the phenomenal animation on display here by MAPPA (Attack on Titan, Vinland Saga, Chainsaw Man), a studio that has repeatedly proven its ability to craft dazzling action sequences, gorgeous imagery and grotesque monsters. Overall, this is a spellbinding start to what promises to be a sorcerous sophomore season.”
