Akutami launched the manga in Shueisha‘s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March 2018. Viz Media published the manga’s first three chapters in English simultaneously with Japan as part of its Jump Start initiative. When Viz then switched to its new Shonen Jump model in December 2018, the company began publishing new chapters of the manga digitally. Shueisha is also publishing the manga on its MANGA Plus service.
Viz Media describes 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…
The Jujutsu Kaisen television anime premiered in October 2020, and it had 24 episodes. Crunchyroll streamed the anime outside of Asia as the anime aired in Japan, and has also streamed dubs in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German.
The anime will get a second season in 2023. The season will air for two cours (quarters of a year) for a continuous half-year run. The anime will adapt both the “Kaigyoku/Gyokusetsu” arc and the “Shibuya Incident” arc.
