Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Review: Intense Battles, Emotional Depths & Cinematic Brilliance

Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 opens with an engaging prequel arc, exploring the origins of a key villain and beloved character. The anime's cinematic style, under a new director, enhances its visual appeal. Despite a tragic narrative with high stakes, the arc's brief length results in an abrupt ending, somewhat diminishing its impact.

Release Date & Where to watch:

The Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, episode 21 release date is December 14. It will be available on Crunchyroll and Funimation from 10:00 AM Pacific/1:00 PM Eastern in the US. That's 6:00 PM GMT for those in the UK.


Jujutsu Kaisen 0, a spin-off movie to the acclaimed anime, offers a poignant prequel to the series. Set before the first season and informed by the recently concluded "Hidden Inventory/Premature Death" arc, the film delves into the tragic backstory of Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto.
The narrative, centered on protecting a young girl from a sorcerer's sacrifice, sets the stage for the eventual confrontation between the two main characters.

Cast Performance:

The movie's short runtime doesn't undermine the stellar performances of the cast. Gojo, typically portrayed as a powerful and carefree teacher, takes on a nuanced role as a teenager with extraordinary abilities.
Geto emerges as a complex and compelling character, his journey from belief in protecting humans to a desire to annihilate them is both harrowing and emotional. The characters' interactions, infused with humor and pop culture references, add depth to their personalities.

Visual/Animation Effects:

Under the direction of Shōta Goshozono, the second season's cinematic flair translates seamlessly into the movie. While the fight scenes maintain their trademark excellence with fluid animation and dynamic choreography, the overall visual presentation receives an upgrade.
Goshozono's keen eye for cinematic storytelling, showcased in previous works like Chainsaw Man and Ranking of Kings, brings a fresh perspective to the visuals, utilizing varied camera angles and clever shot composition.

Sound Effects:

The movie continues to deliver on the supernatural and horror elements, with terrific imagery that complements the dark and grim aspects of the narrative. The balance between the intense action sequences and the characters' witty banter is well-maintained, contributing to the overall immersive experience.


Despite its strengths, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 grapples with its short length, resulting in a rushed conclusion. The series' tendency to overexplain its power system, influenced by Hunter x Hunter, occasionally hinders the storytelling, diverting focus from character development. The finale, while effective, feels somewhat abrupt, leaving viewers longing for more exploration of Geto's descent into darkness.
