Jujutsu Kaisen Manga creator Gege Akutami recently shared his thoughts on the 9th volume of Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, airing on September 22, 2023, and praised the adaptation and solid standout moments.
In his comments, Akutami expressed his admiration for Gojo Satoru’s role in the episode, mentioning that he is cooler and scarier in the anime than in the manga.
Another standout moment that Akutami highlights is when Jogo, a cursed spirit, appears from a cloud of smoke and regenerates his arm. He described the scene as cool and it made him laugh.

Thanks for season two episode 9!!
Gojo is cooler and scarier in the manga!! The moment Jogo stepped out of the smoke and his arm grew back so cool, I actually laughed. And the lip-syncing was perfect. I was so excited!!
