The Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Shibuya Incident Arc has been announced for release on August 31, 2023. The trailer has finally dropped and the first look at the entirety of the trailer brings out a plethora of intensive battles and an extravaganza of various sub-plots within.
The upcoming Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Shibuya Incident Arc is expected to continue for a total of 17 episodes, yet fans are centered around a skeptical debate – Will the Jujutsu Kaisen Shibuya Arc cover all chapters of the manga in the second cour of Season 2?
What is the Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Shibuya Incident Arc going to be about?
The Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Shibuya Incident Arc is primarily a narration of the various battles and conspiracies that work out in Shibuya between the sorcerers and cursed spirits. It has been divided into several sections and the recently released trailer has attempted to extensively covet almost all of them.
The main events of the Jujutsu Kaisen Shibuya Arc, when condensed, resort themselves to major events like the sealing of Satoru Gojo, the reanimation of Toji Fushiguro, the confrontation with Megumi and the Shibuya massacre by Sukuna, the death of fan-favorite and Gojo’s heart-throb Kento Nanami, the decapitation of Nobara Kugisaki and Mahito’s investigation by Kenjaku using Cursed Spirit Manipulation.
- The fact that these events will conspire, and many more in between, in such a condensed manner, demands that they be systematically arranged and narrated in a very formulated manner.
- It will also demand exquisite perfection for one of the longest arcs to be covered in just a span of 17 episodes.
The Jujutsu Kaisen Shibuya Arc will majorly be determined not by the heroes and their valiant battles but by the motivation of the antagonists and the implosion of their repressed frustrations.
Will the Jujutsu Kaisen Shibuya Arc cover entire chapters from the manga?
The Jujutsu Kaisen Shibuya Arc starts in Chapter 79 of the manga and ends in Chapter 136. It manages to introduce a total of seven new characters and unravel a series of secrets, mysteries, and conundrums.
The manga goes into detail about the powers associated with Mahito and Sukuna, with an extensive interest in the development of the Black Flash, the introduction of Mahoraga, Choso’s past and his betrayal, and the nature and origin of the Death Paintings.
All of these battles and extended narratives demand considerable investment into the story as it is being animated. But, given the fact that Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 covered 63 chapters in just 26 episodes, it can be safely assumed that in 17 episodes, which might be extended ones in a few cases, it would significantly cover 57 chapters from the manga.
It is tough to assume that the Jujutsu Kaisen Shibuya Arc will be covered entirely in the anime’s second season, but safe assumptions also include ones where the anime season might cover only up to a certain important event and leave the rest for further production as a different part.
But, this assumption is a challenging one as the Shibuya Arc is interlinked and needs to be narrated together, giving rise to the belief that even if it has to be narrated in extended episodes like Demon Slayer, it remains to be the case in point and motion.
Where can we watch Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Shibuya Incident Arc?
The Jujutsu Kaisen Shibuya Arc will be available to watch on Crunchyroll and Netflix for viewers worldwide. The flashback story and the earlier season are also available on the same, making it a common arena for all things related to Jujutsu Kaisen. The episodes will be available in Japanese dub along with English subs, while the English dubs are projected to be released a week later, as followed in the earlier seasons so far.
The Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Shibuya Incident Arc is demanding and arduous, and to cover it in just seventeen episodes would require major miracles to happen. But, as we have already seen, Jujutsu Kaisen hasn’t failed to deliver and we can definitely hope for a conclusive ending to the story no matter the amount of sections it covers from the manga.
