“There’s some nice upheaval in the box office this weekend, led by the very strong debut of the anime tie-in/manga adaptation Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie. It opened in second place at $14.8 million, a little less than half of what The Batman shot in its third week ($36 million for a total of $300 million), but this is a big-budget American superhero film, not an imported anime film.” — Sam Barsanti, above AV club.

Season 2 of the anime scheduled for 2023 returns

With Jujutsu Kaisen 0 proving so successful not only in Japan but around the world, fans are understandably desperate for a sequel to the TV series.

The good news is that Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen will premiere in 2023, as confirmed at the Jump Festa event in February.

There was some confusion online as to whether the series would return as part of the winter broadcast schedule, i.e. in January 2023, after the Weekly Shonen Jump News Twitter page made a mistake in their original post.

However, this information was quickly changed, with the most likely scenario being that the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen will debut in either April or July 2023.
