Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen is serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump and began its run in 2018. The manga’s success inspired an anime adaptation two years following its debut, and the series has won a variety of awards during its short run.

MAPPA produced an anime adaptation that aired during the Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 seasons. The series ran for 24 episodes and is directed by Sunghoo Park, who also worked on The God of High School. Hiroshi Seko served as the series’ screenwriter and has worked on notable series such as Mob Psycho 100, Attack on Titan, and the upcoming Chainsaw Man anime adaptation.

Akutami released a short one-volume series that preceded Jujutsu Kaisen in 2017. Titled, Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School when it was released, the manga was retroactively renamed Jujutsu Kaisen 0. The series ran in the Jump GIGA magazine from April to July, and a film adaptation produced by MAPPA is set to come out on December 24th. Park will return to direct it and Seko will once again serve as screenwriter.

Viz Media publishes the Jujutsu Kaisen and Jujutsu Kaisen 0 in English. Crunchyroll streams the series in English, though no plans to distribute the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film outside of Japan have been announced yet.
