Synopsis of Jujutsu Kaisen 2nd Season
The year is 2006 and the hallways of the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu Institute echo with endless discussions and intense debates between two inseparable best friends. With unwavering confidence, Satoru Gojou and Suguru Getou believe that there is no challenge too great for young and powerful special grade sorcerers like them. They have been tasked with safely delivering a sensible girl named Riko Amanai to the entity whose existence is the very essence of the world of jujutsu. However, the mission plunges them into an exhausting whirlpool of moral conflicts that threatens to destroy the already tenuous friendship between sorcerers and ordinary humans.
Twelve years later, students and sorcerers are the first line of defense against the increasing number of high-level curses born from the negative emotions of humans. As entities grow in power, so do their self-awareness and ambition. The curses come together with the common goal of eradicating humans and creating a world of only cursed energy users, led by a dangerous ancient cursed spirit. To get rid of their biggest obstacle – the strongest sorcerer, Gojou – they orchestrate an attack on Shibuya Station on Halloween. Divided into teams, the sorcerers enter combat ready to risk everything to protect the innocent and their own kind.
