When an anime series comes to an end us anime bloggers/YouTubers go on a frenzy about reviewing a fantastic series like Jujutsu Kaisen.
Me, I thought I’d do something different for my usual review, so here goes, My discussion about The 2020/2021 anime of the year Jujutsu Kaisen.
Premiered: Fall 2020
What did I like about Jujutsu Kaisen?
How much it reminds me of Blue Exorcist
What didn’t I like about Jujustu Kaisen? It was everything I expected in a show and more; it definitely had Ao No Exorcist vibes in terms of Yuuji getting a demon inside of him, while we all know Rin was born a demon due to his father but wanted to become a Jujutsu Sorcerer to save people; he definitely doesn’t have the hot head vibes that Rin Okumara did.
The Main teams Dynamic
The dynamic between the main team Yuuji, Megumi and Nobara was actually quite astonishing, after one mission they became some kind of bond that emerged just as the show came to a close, There are times where you see Nobara and Yuuji teasing megumi and every time It made me laugh.
not only did that make me laugh but Satoru Gojo’s normal attitude gave the show a little bit of light to the dark side but that made me distrust his character even more!
I always wondered why the Tokyo headmaster keeps Gojo around, but hes obviously reliable especially when it came to the fight between him and
The fight scenes
With so many fight scenes I couldn’t pick just one! THERE WERE SO MANY GOOD FIGHTS
What I didn’t like about it?
I loved both of the opening songs but I’m not keen on the endings.
I liked the school exchange arc because it introduced some interesting characters like Todou and others, but I didn’t feel like it was important to the plot in some way; indeed, the outcomes of that arc weren’t the best for the characters and the story the show was telling; I loved the battles, don’t get me wrong; the team up between Kyoto and Tokyo was defiantly worth the watch.
Even though this show was 24 episodes I felt like a lot of information is missing from what we were told, we have more questions than answers
like I said up top, I loved Jujustu Kaisen, and actually it was the only anime that I watched each week as the others I have saved for my Easter break to watch.
When I finished the last episode on Friday I was pretty disappointed with the ending but only the last part, It wasn’t very anti climatic and it wasn’t what I was suspecting, but with the movie coming out, I don’t really mind, and I have a feeling we will get a season 2.
Yuuji voiced by Junya Enoki. Yuuji is a sweetheart, and I admire how serious and caring he is for protecting others, despite the fact that he has been taken over by the cursed spirit Sukuna, played by Junichi Suwabe.
as far as demons go, Sukuna is pretty chill and laid back, right before the fight vs Megumi he actually gives a dam about his predicament until now, even though there fight was short and a lot of stuff happened after that I even don’t think we heard a hide no hare of the demon until at least the last episode.
Yuuji gets a cruel reality check when assisting Nanami Kento with a job outside the academy which I think hurts him and that’s what makes him a fantastic main character, he gets stronger in the service of others.
Megumi voiced by Yuma Uchida. Megumi was the only character I didn’t completely comprehend; he’s cute and seems to be the group’s most level-headed member; from his battle with Sukuna, I thought there was something the anime was hiding from us about him, but when I saw what he could do, I was blown away!
He’s defiantly the most secretive of the bunch.
Nobara voiced by Asami Seto. Nobara is my main girl for this season, she strikes a my heart and that isn’t a pun since he technique involves nails and a hammer.
We meet her after the team is created, and she doesn’t get along with the boys at first, but after one mission they become a great team, and when it came to the season finale battle, she defiantly stole the show from Megumi. She’s cute and defiantly kicks butt, and she’s better at the end than she was at the start, but I guess that’s what we were supposed to think.
Gojo voiced by Yuichi Nakamura.
As much as I adored Gojo, the last episode and the words he said made me rethink trusting him; he is known as a powerful Jujustsu sorcerer, and I swear everyone on the internet should goo goo gaa ga for him! Despite being a teacher at a Tokyo academy, he is very childish and has a very light sense of humor and because of this he is hated for example by The headmaster of the Kyoto school.
When we first met the students from the Kyoto school they didn’t make a good impression in terms of picking fights before the exchange event begun and I was so excited to see what other students could do.
Maki, Panda, and Toge are second years at the Tokyo school, and because I knew a little about cursed energy concepts, it wasn’t surprising that a Panda could speak; in fact, it made the school battles much more exciting to watch; they are very dependable upperclassmen to the first years, and even go out of their way to help the first years get stronger.
Its a sign I’ve watched too much anime that nothing surprises me anymore…
I’m glad we met other Jujustu Sorcerers because if you’re going to be in a career, you have to know the players. Nanami is a grade 1 sorcerer, just as powerful as Gojo, but he’s the kind of person who does things out of obligation.
If I had to pick between Nanami and Gojo, I would always go with Nanami. Whatever Gojo looks like when he’s not wearing his mask or in regular clothes, there’s something about Nanami that you can’t take your eyes away from.
At this moment in time these two are our main antagonists, Geto seems not to be a cursed spirit like Mahito is and not much is known about him as for Mahito is was very surprising and what he could do.
The results of the exchange arc and the results of the last episode still keeps us guessing about what there end game is, and that just makes us to want to watch more.
What I want to happen in the second season
- More and better fight scenes
- answers to questions
- outside jobs for the students
- more teams up with the Kyoto students
- getting to know more Jujustu Sorcerers
