What Happens in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Prologue
Jujutsu Kaisen is finally back with the highly anticipated sequel, taking fans back to the world of Witches and Curses. Season 2 Episode 1, “Hidden Inventory”, officially begins the flashback story known as the “Gojo’s Past” arc, which focuses on the fan-favorite Satoru Gojo during his school years. The episode opens with Jujutsu Witches Mei Mei and Utahime Iori exploring a cursed building. In the end, they got stuck in a loop as the corridor stretched endlessly but eventually got out by sprinting in opposite directions. After escaping, they meet the beloved trio Shoko Ieiri, Suguru Geto, and the beloved Satoru Gojo.
After this introduction, Gojo and his partners were summoned by Principal Yaga, who reprimanded them for a recent mistake in the field. However, he soon assigns Gojo and Geto the important task of protecting a young girl who will become a vessel for Tengen, a powerful barrier user. This number requires a new body to restart their Cursed Technique cycle as they are immortal and living too long will cause them to lose their sense of self. So, Gojo and Geto set out for the young girl, only to be attacked by a group trying to stop Tengen’s reincarnation. The episode ends with the introduction of the villain Toji Fushiguro.
The Jujutsu Kaisen manga series, written by Gege Akutami, is a top-rated manga serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump. Studio MAPPA’s anime adaptation, which began in 2020, has raised the series even further, making it one of the best-selling animated series in the industry. The launch of Season 2 was so popular that the Crunchyroll site crashed. JJK has also been associated with Hell’s Paradise and Chainsaw Man as a member of the “Dark Shonen Trio,” a collection of influential modern properties focused on violence and action. The manga recently ended a brief hiatus, releasing Chapter 227 on July 2, 2023.
Besides the anime series, the franchise has also created a prequel film called Jujutsu Kaisen 0, which entered the top 10 highest-grossing Japanese films ever made. The story follows Yuta Okkotsu, a young man who enters Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School to learn how to control the Cursed Spirit of his childhood friend, Rika. Yuta is slated to debut in the anime’s television chapter in Season 2.
Episode 2, “Hidden Inventory 2,” will be available on July 13, 2023, on Crunchyroll. Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 and Jutjusu Kaisen 0 are streaming on the same service.
