Jujutsu Kaisen features five arcs from the Jujutsu Kaisen manga to date in its first season. The bows were not only executed with sufficient precision but also exactly as they were pictured in mind. It’s hard to criticize anime because there is nothing to dislike here. Maybe that’s why it’s a bit sad to know that the anime will end after the next three episodes. After the 24 episodes are over, all we can do is wait for the next season and hope it comes out soon.
After 21 episodes, Jujutsu Kaisen stepped into the next arc. So far the anime has been the story of Itadori Yuji and his quest to become stronger. As the latest episode approaches, we have seen Itadori’s power grow even more. He has come a long way from being part of a small occult club in high school to fighting the curse of a special class. Not to mention that he has been gathering friends and mentors who are reliable and strong. The progress in the story is steady and has a gentle, warm vibe alongside the dark theme it carries.
This anime has also introduced us to some very strong characters, both good and evil. It also has a balanced sense of humor which keeps viewers coming back for another episode. It’s a shame to see the end of the season.
But, it seemed like Jujutsu Kaisen was going to end hard. The last three episodes seem even more promising now that the final arc has been revealed!
Jujutsu Kaisen Preview: Episode 22
Until the episodes before the 22nd, this anime was focused on the Kyoto Goodwill Event arc. This arc is by far the second longest arc in the manga. In episode 21 we saw that after the interruption of the Exchange Event, the students gathered to play baseball and determine the winner of the outcome of the game. There are some moments that will make you laugh, some will make you wonder what just happened, and some that might touch your heart. Yes, baseball games can have heartfelt moments too! This episode also focuses on Todou’s resemblance to Yuji as he continues to pursue her and becomes more delusional. She was so delusional that she made up a story about how they went to high school together.
The episode was great but the preview of episode 22 was, in the end, what people were talking about. Given that three episodes still remain, it’s no surprise to see a new arc being introduced. In the preview episode 22, we saw a woman riding Itadori Yuji, Megumi Fushiguro, and Nobara Kugisaki. This woman is Akira Nitta, their supervisor. This scene is from the first chapter of the next arc, The Death Painting. Now, here’s the tricky part. The bow is very important to the viewer as it has some very important significance for future arcs. Are three episodes enough to bring a 10-chapter long arc to life?
This may be a little difficult but it doesn’t seem entirely impossible. I hope that in an effort to end this anime, they don’t end up rushing into the story. However, the anime didn’t disappoint viewers in any way so it might be fine.
Jujutsu Kaisen: Final Arc Revelation– Reaction
The introduction of the Painting of Death Arc in season one itself is a bit of a surprise. I always thought the Kyoto Goodwill Event Arc would probably be the last arc we’ll see in the anime. Seeing an entirely new arc introduced in the last three episodes surprised me. The Cursed Training Arc which consists of 9 chapters, completed in four episodes. Since the death painting arc is covered in 8 chapters, it’s possible that three episodes might be enough to cover it in the anime. The arc holds important details not only on Megumi but also some of the main antagonists in the future Jujutsu Kaisen universe.
It remains to be asked how far the story will be animated. One possible theory is that they might leave some cliffhangers at the end of the first season. Little, no matter how I look at it, a cliffhanger seems like a bad idea. Also, now that the final arc has been revealed, it can be predicted that the second season (considering it was released) will start with the Gojo Past Arc. The manga is still not finished and Akutami is still writing it. So, it might take a while before a new season is released.
