Earlier this year, MAPPA studios confirmed that Jujutsu Kaisen would return with a second season. They also released a teaser visual showing Gojo Satoru and Geto Suguru as high school students.

The show will run for two consecutive cours, each spanning 24 episodes. The first cour will adapt the Hidden Inventory and Shibuya Incident arcs from Gege Akutami’s manga.

The Hidden Inventory Arc

Jujutsu Kaisen fans will be pleased to know that the second season will adapt two major arcs, which are widely considered to be among the best in the manga. The first arc, The Hidden Inventory Arc will delve deeper into Gojo's past and also feature a key antagonist from the manga called Toji.

Gojo and Geto are tasked with protecting someone critical to the future of Jujutsu Society from an aggressive group of assassins while learning more about their past. This arc will also see Gojo evolve and master Reversed Curse Technique and space manipulation, as well as show Toji who's boss.

MAPPA has already released some stunning promotional art for the second season that shows characters such as Itadori, Nobara Kugisaki, and Yuta Okkotsu fighting their curses in the present while looking back at their past lives. The series is also being released in two cours, which are essentially halves of the anime that will each last for three months with weekly episodes.

The Shibuya Incident Arc

After the Hidden Inventory Arc, MAPPA will be adapting another major manga arc in season 2. The Shibuya Incident Arc or Gojo's Past Arc covers Chapters 65 to 79. This arc explores the history and secrets of Gojo Satoru and includes some significant character development.

At Jump Festa '23 Mappa released a teaser trailer that showcased the gorgeous animation in the upcoming anime series. The trailer also introduces several important characters in the Gojo's Past arc such as Geto Suguru and Toji Fushiguro.

The plot of the arc follows the First Years as they try to exorcise a curse wreaking havoc at Megumi's old school. The curse has a 100% killing record and could possibly be targeting Megumi's sister. The first years team up with a powerful sorcerer named Yuta Okkotsu to take on this menace. The arc promises to be exciting, action-packed, and emotionally impactful. The arc will cover some world-shattering events like someone being sealed in a prison realm, true identities being revealed, and a demon erupting once again.

The Kaigyoku/Gokusetsu Arc

The Kaigyoku/Gokusetsu Arc is the fifth arc of Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen manga. It follows Satoru Gojo back in 2006 when he was still a student at Tokyo Jujutsu High along with Suguru Geto. They will be forced to escort a Star Plasma Vessel to Master Tengen as curse user groups conspire against them.

The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie has already animated the Cursed Child Arc (4 chapters) and some snippets of Gojo’s Past Arc (14 chapters, 65-78). If season 2 follows through with this arc, it will be an excellent way to offer fans a glimpse into Satoru’s backstory before entering the present day Shibuya Incident.

This arc is also where we’ll learn more about Mahito and Sukuna’s curse techniques, the development of Black Flash, and the nature of Death Paintings. These are all details that will occupy more than just one or two text-infested panels in the manga but will require considerable time to cover on a TV show.

The Yuta Okkotsu Arc

MAPPA announced that it will be animating the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen, and it seems the series will cover two major arcs: Gojo Satoru’s Past Arc and the Shibuya Incident. These arcs promise to answer some of the questions that have plagued the series and further engage, enthrall, and traumatize fans of the manga.

The Shibuya Incident arc will see Satoru reuniting with Geto as they attempt to prevent the special-grade cursed spirit Kurourushi from entering the human world. Moreover, this arc will further introduce a new character to the story in Naoya Zenin, the cousin of Maki and son of Yuji.

Considering that this arc covers 73 chapters, it’s unlikely to fit in a 26-episode season unless MAPPA decides to split it into two 15-episode courses. However, the Sendai Colony arc will likely end towards the end of the Shibuya arc or even further back, depending on how it is handled by the production team.
