Jujutsu Kaisen Anime Will Continue with Culling Game Arc

Season two of Jujutsu Kaisen just wrapped up today, finishing off the Shibuya Incident arc. But fans will be glad to know that the anime will continue with a sequel! A trailer has already been posted to tease the upcoming adaptation of the Culling Game arc (a.k.a. Shimetsu Kaiyū in Japanese). The trailer comes to us courtesy of the TOHO Animation YouTube page, and MAPPA is staying on as a producer for the series. The teaser trailer, like a true teaser, does not yet reveal when we might expect to watch new episodes.

The Jujutsu Kaisen series began in 2018 with Gege Akutami’s manga, which has been published by Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. It didn’t take long for the series to become popular, and two years later the anime commenced. The first season consisted of 24 episodes.

After that came the movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0, which was released in late 2021.

Then season two got going this past summer. The first part debuted in July and lasted until August. This covered the “Hidden Inventory / Premature Death” arc (a.k.a. “Kaigyoku/Gyokusetsu” in Japanese). The second part or cours of the second season launched on August 31, and that’s when we get into the Shibuya Incident arc.

Crunchyroll has been streaming the series as it comes out, and additionally supplying an English dub for it.

VIZ Media publishes the original manga in English and gave this description for the first volume:

Although Yuji Itadori looks like your average teenager, his immense physical strength is something to behold! Every sports club wants him to join, but Itadori would rather hang out with the school outcasts in the Occult Research Club. One day, the club manages to get their hands on a sealed cursed object. Little do they know the terror they’ll unleash when they break the seal…
