The Jujutsu Kaisen: Specials are now an integral part of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime, as they help to condense the entire narration until now into singular episodes. These serve not only as a recap but also help revisit the pivotal moments in the plot which has been adapted into anime until now. The first of the Jujutsu Kaisen: Specials, which was released on August 10 serve as a revision of the entire plot until now, which includes both of the seasons and the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie.
What was shown in the first episode of the Jujutsu Kaisen: Specials?
The first episode of the Jujutsu Kaisen: Specials was titled ‘Idle Talk Part 1’. It was released on August 10, 2023, and it helped narrate the entirety of the first cour of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 and the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie into a condensed 24-minute episode. The episode began with the introduction of Gojo and Geto and it followed the introduction of the Star Plasma Vessel.
It then moved into the battle between Toji and Gojo, the murder of Riko Amanai, and the recovery of Gojo Satoru which showed the awakening of his Revered Curse Technique and Limitless.
The special then shifts to 10 years later, when Geto arrived at Jujutsu High and announced the Night Parade. It showed his attack at school and the appearance of Yuta. The latter part of the video focused on Geto’s will to absorb Yuta’s cursed spirit Rika. It moves into the battle between Geto and Yuta and ends with a glimpse of Gojo during his time at Jujutsu High.
How are the Jujutsu Kaisen: Specials important?
The Jujutsu Kaisen: Specials focus mainly on the revisionist aspect of the entire anime. While they bring back the crucial scenes from the earlier seasons and episodes, they are also meant to focus on creating a smooth momentum for the viewers to move into the second cour of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2.
The intention is to create a seamless viewing experience for viewers and help them clear any confusion with the narrative as they move into the Shibuya Incident Arc.
While Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is currently on a brief hiatus, it is important that fans, who might need a recap of the previous plot development, should revisit the same through the Jujutsu Kaisen: Specials.
When will the second cour of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 release?
The Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Cour 2 will release on August 31, 2023. While the Jujutsu Kaisen: Specials are meant to provide a revisit to the narrative until now, the second cour of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 will focus on the Shibuya Incident Arc.
The news comes after MAPPA decided to divide the second season into two parts, to establish a fluid connection between two separate timelines, one in the past which is meant for reminiscence, and the other in the present which will take the story forward.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Cour 2 will be available on Netflix and Crunchyroll. Moreover, the earlier season and even Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is available on both platforms for viewers and has been doing extremely well worldwide.
The success comes mainly after the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie and also the first cour of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 which focused on Gojo’s Past Arc.
Jujutsu Kaisen: Specials are an extremely integral segment of the narrative, as they are meant to help the viewers gain a smooth experience of the storytelling. This will also help viewers to properly revise the narrative, and move into the future without any hindrance.
