An official first key visual was recently revealed for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen (lit. Sorcery Fight) manga series. Check out the creepy first key visual below!
The anime will be directed by Sunghoo Park (The God of High School) for studio MAPPA. Scripts will be written and supervised by Hiroshi Seko (Vinland Saga), with Tadashi Hiramatsu (Yuri!!! On ICE) in charge of character design. Music composition will be done by Hiroaki Tsutsumi, Yoshimasa Terui, and Arisa Okehazama.
Junya Enoki (Takeru Takaishi in Digimon Adventure tri) will voice main character Yuji Itadori. Yuma Uchida (Kyo Soma in Fruits Basket 2019) will be playing Megumi Fushiguro and Asami Seto (Mai Sakurajima in Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai) will be voicing Nobara Kugisaki.
Jujutsu Kaisen is set for an October 2020 premiere, with no exact premiere date announced as of this writing.
Jujutsu Kaisen is a manga series written and illustrated by Gege Akutami. It was first published in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in March 5, 2018 and has been serialized in the magazine since then. Shueisha is also collecting and publishing the manga’s tankobon volumes, with ten already released as of March 2020. The eleventh volume will be released on June 4.
Viz Media published the manga’s first three chapters in English the same time as Japan, as part of its Jump Start initiative. Eventually Viz switched to the new Shonen Jump model and has since been publishing new Jujutsu Kaisen chapters digitally. The manga is also being published in the MANGA Plus website, where it is described as thus:
“For some strange reason, Yuji Itadori, despite his insane athleticism would rather just hang out with the Occult Club. However, her soon finds out that the occult is as real as it gets when his fellow club members are attacked! Meanwhile, the mysterious Megumi Fushiguro is tracking down a special-grade cursed object, and his search leads him to Itadori…”
