Tissues ready? You’re going to need a lot of it for Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2.
Jujutsu Kaisen has been slowly preparing for its second season, which will premiere later this summer, and a recent update on what to anticipate has hinted an emotional rupture in Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto’s shared history.
One of the biggest hints from the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 prequel film was not that it took place a year before the events of the main series, along with the introduction of Yuta Okkotsu, but that Gojo and the main villain Geto shared a past as two powerful sorcerers working together on the same squad at Jujutsu Tech.
A new description of Gojo and Geto’s characters in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 was shared in the pages of the latest issue of Shueisha’s Saikyo Jump magazine, and it teases the duo as follows:
“Gojo and Geto were the strongest when they were a team of two during their days in Jujutsu Tech. However, due to a certain event, Gojo alone becomes the strongest.”
Looking back at Season 1, Gojo has always emphasized one thing: He can do anything because he was the strongest. But now that we know that that line has a sad history of its own, it’s no longer so much fun to say.
The second season of the series will pick up from the Secret Inventory and Premature Death arcs from Gege Akutami’s original manga series, dubbed “Gojo’s Past” by fans. This arc delves into Gojo and Geto’s days at Jujutsu Tech alongside the third member of their team, Shoko Ieiri, and a fresh update about their personalities throughout this arc previews the huge mission that would serve to separate them at a critical juncture.
The premiere of Jujutsu Kaisen is almost here, and many are eager to see what happens next in this series filled with misfortunes. Stay tuned for more updates!
