Crunchyroll has announced that the highly-anticipated anime “JUJUTSU KAISEN” will head to the platform exclusively as part of Crunchyroll’s upcoming anime season this October. The series will be available to the anime community worldwide, outside of Asia.
Hardship, regret, shame: the negative feelings that humans feel become curses that lurk in our everyday lives. The curses run rampant throughout the world, capable of leading people to terrible misfortune and even death, and can only be exorcised by another curse. “Jujutsu Kaisen” follows the life of teenager Yuji Itadori, who finds himself entangled in an epic battle between sorcerers and powerful curses, even becoming possessed himself.
MAPPA, the powerhouse animation studio, will animate the series with Sunghoo Park leading the show’s direction, after recently teaming up for “The God of High School,” another Crunchyroll Original series. The manga for “Jujutsu Kaisen” launched in 2018 and as of June 2020, more than 6.5 million copies are currently in circulation. For fans eager to catch up on the manga before the show premieres, “Jujutsu Kaisen” is published by Shueisha in Japan and VIZ Media in the United States.
From humble beginnings as a bisexual art kid who drank more coffee than a 40-year-old author, Remy now holds a BFA in Film Production from Chapman University and is a proud member of the HorrorBuzz team (and still a bisexual art kid who drinks too much coffee). They were first introduced to the world of horror and camp when their grandma showed them The Rocky Horror Picture Show at age 5, and never looked back. When they're not writing cartoons or working on movies, one can spot them in various clubs around Los Angeles performing very, very self-deprecating standup comedy. Howdy ho!
