news culture Jujutsu Kaisen season 3: after a masterful season 2, the adaptation of The Murderous Hunt will be even more spectacular! This is what we can expect
At the gates of the year 2024, season 2 of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime has lowered the curtain. However, just before enjoying the final episode, fans were happy to learn that the third season was already in the works at the prolific and busy MAPPA studio. To make fans happy and worried (due to the conditions), the studio delivered a second season full of twists and action, which bodes well for the future: season 3 and The Murderous Hunt arc. We’ll tell you more!
What will be on the Jujutsu Kaisen season 3 show?
After months and months of weekly dates, the second season of the manga adaptation arrives Jujutsu Kaisen He was out. Once again, the animators and artists at the MAPPA studio have given us a great ending. As far as we know, production on this third round of episodes has already begun, but the wait for the final reveal may be very long.. On the one hand, the interval between season 1 and season 2 was somewhat longer than two years, which would take us to the end of 2025. On the other hand, we know that the Japanese animation studio is increasing its projects, which could also affect the development of season 3. Regardless, and by then, the pre-publication of the manga in Weekly Shōnen Jump will have been completed. As the author suggests, the conclusion of Jujutsu Kaisen could be delivered during the next twelve months.
As for the anime, the MAPPA teams still have room to develop a fourth season! Meanwhile, the third season will address one of the other main arcs of the manga, as strong and rich in fights as The Shibuya Drama was. In this case, and as we suspected, the third season of the anime Jujutsu Kaisen will address The Killer Hunt. But she will have other adventures to tell us before, a bit like the studio did during the first episodes of season 2 with the events of Hidden Treasure / Premature Death. Thus, before starting the Killer Hunt arc, we would be entitled to some episodes, as a preamble, about the Yuji Execution arc and the Preparations for the Hunt.. Technically, if the MAPPA studio sticks to that, this third season should adapt chapters 138 to 212, to end with a big cliffhanger. Knowing that season 2 spanned 72 episodes (from 65 to 137), we would be on target!
The return of an important character from the movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0
One of the important points of the next season of the anime. Jujutsu Kaisen, This is the reappearance of Yuta Okkotsu’s character. We use the term “reappearance” since this exorcist is the main character of the film. Jujutsu Kaisen 0. Furthermore, we find him at the end of the second season, making comments that serve as final twists in these five months of broadcast. As seen in the film that serves as a prequel to Akutami Gege’s manga, Yuta Okkotsu is a very important characterin particular because he can use a very particular whip during combat, he has the ability to copy the techniques of other exorcists and… he has common ancestors with Gojo Satoru! That alone makes him one of Season 3’s biggest assets.especially since he will be heavily involved in The Murderous Hunt arc.
However, he will not be the only star of this important manga arc. If we could discover new ones in the second season and the Shibuya Drama arc, There are new figures – and others, older ones – who will also have the opportunity to shine and gain importance. To leave you with the pleasure of discovery or reading, we will keep their names a secret, but expect great surprises and great increases in power! Having said that, The Murderous Hunt arc is also a great pretext to address the true intentions of a character that we saw very quickly in Akutami Gege’s manga.almost during the first few chapters: i.e. Geto Suguru!
The true intentions behind the character of Geto Suguru
Warning, the next part contains spoilers. It was one of the big surprises of this second season: the return of Geto Suguru, and we’re not talking about the flashbacks of the first episodes! Already crossed in the first season, the events of the film. Jujutsu Kaisen 0, published later, were disconcerting since we discovered the tragic fate of Suguru, murdered by Gojo Satoru, his lifelong friend. This reappearance in Shibuya, in season 2 and the arc it adapts, also took Gojo Satoru by surprise, moments before being sealed. And for good reason, it is only Geto’s body that he has in front of him: his mind, his consciousness are no longer the same as his envelope is controlled by… Kenjaku or, to use one of his many aliases, Noritoshi Kamo.. Thanks to his spell, which allows him to transplant his brain into other bodies (hence the presence of a line on the forehead of his “victims”), Kenjaku was able to cross the ages, he who lived mainly during the Meiji era, more than a thousand years.
Towards the end of the Shibuya Drama arc, everything turns out exactly as expected and falls into place so that he can take the next step in his plan: the killer hunt. Behind this already gloomy name hides an even more sinister reality since it is nothing more and nothing less than a kind of great tournament that takes place in different places in the country. Within the ten arenas bounded by barriers deployed by Kenjaku, the holders (not recently revealed exorcists) and users (the exorcists) of hidden energy are forced to kill each other to optimize the potential of hidden energy and make all of humanity evolve.. However, to protect this morbid ritual, Kenjaku has imposed restrictions on himself, to the point of not being the master of the game of Hunting: It is the Hunt itself that governs itself through a regulation that includes multiple rules, which can be added or removed through a system of points that are obtained through very specific actions. All in all, it’s one of the most complex and complex parts of the manga and we can’t wait to discover MAPPA’s adaptation.
The Murderous Hunt arc, even bloodier and more shocking than The Shibuya Drama
By just sketching the contours of the Killing Hunt, we easily understand that it will once again be a matter of of a very rhythmic arc rich in combat, and not just an avalanche of complex plot details, although we can expect a few passages full of explanations and new powers and territories imagined by Akutami Gege. Anyway, if you enjoyed the fights in the Shibuya Drama arc, The Murderous Hunt contains some of the most spectacular fights in Jujutsu Kaisen. Among them, we can mention the dazzling evolution and Dantesque combats of Maki Zenin in the Preparations arc, the chance encounter with Kinji Hakari – Yuji and Megumi’s new and precious ally introduced in this arc -, or even the atypical confrontation between Itadori . Yuji and Hiromi Higuruma! Those who diligently follow the manga and the chapters prior to publication know very well what we are referring to and it is only the visible part of the iceberg!
Between the exorcists, the whippings, the relics, and the non-exorcists-turned-exorcists lurking in the ten arenas spread across Japan, This arc offers a series of battles that take place at a fairly sustained pace, multiplying the ups and downs between the protagonists who fight against Kenjaku’s Machiavellian plan., in addition to the threat of Sukuna that continues to hover over them. In terms of time, it’s almost a month of fights that will be at the center of season 3 of Jujutsu Kaisen. Beyond Yuji’s character, Megumi, Maki, Yuta and Kinji will be tested exhaustively during the epic showdowns of Murderous Hunt, while some surprise fights, involving characters slightly backdated from the beginning of the manga, will complete the deluge. of action that is being prepared. With this third season, the adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen will increase in intensity, which should greatly satisfy fans of the second season, and will prepare us for another important, dare we say, traumatic, step with the Battle of Shinjuku arc., ideal material for a fourth season. However, what we hope above all is that the working conditions within the MAPPA studio improve and that the artists and animators have the time and means to take care of this arc from A to Z.
