Staff, Cast & New Characters
The older cast for the anime will reprise their role for season 2, except for a little change.
- Directed by – Sunghoo Park
- Series Composition/Screenplay – Koji Seko
- Character Design – Tadashi Hiramatsu
- Deputy Supervisor – Yui Umemoto
- Art Supervisor – Kim Jong-ryun
- Color Design – Chikako Kamata
- CGI Producer – Yuusuke Tannowa
- 3DCG Director – Miki Kaneda and Kentaro Kimura
- Cinematographer – Teppei Ito
- Editor –Keisuke Yanagi
- Music – Hiroaki Tsutsumi, Junsei Terui, Arisa Okehazama
- Sound Supervisor – Akiko Fujita
- Sound Production – Dugout
The cast for these new characters is yet to be revealed but it can be announced anytime soon now. It is expected that most of the artists who gave their voices to characters in season 1 will continue playing them in season 2 also. The current cast is as follows:
- Yuji Itadori – played by Junya Enoki
- Nobara Kugisaki – Asami Seto
- Megumi Fushiguro – Yuma Uchida
- Gojo Satoru – Yûichi Nakamura
- Ryomen Sukuna – Junichi Suwabe
- Geto Suguru – Takahiro Sakurai**
It is highly unlikely that Takahiro Sakurai will reprise his role as Geto. The next season will have a brief part of Geto Suguru and his original Seiyuu might not be in season 2. Takahiro was excluded from many famous shows for his illicit infidelity controversy. So, he might not be in season 2, which is a bit troublesome, as Geto has a big role in season 2.
Arcs & Storylines
The first season of the anime ended in chapter 64 volume 8 in the Death Painting Arc. The next season will have two arcs, Gojo Past Arc and the Shibuya Incident Arc.
These arcs are from chapter 65 to chapter 136 in manga in volumes 9 to 16. The previous season adapted 2 or 3 chapters from the manga for each episode. If the same pacing is continued, it confirms that season 2 will have 24 episodes covering around 70 chapters.
The Gojo Past arc will have Gojo reminiscing about his High School days, with his best friend Geto. This will also include the mission to escort Star Plasma Vessel.
Later, The Shibuya Incident arc will be Geto’s plan in motion to seal Gojo Satoru. In response, Yuji and his companionsgo to to Shibuya station to stop Geto’s plan. To know everything about the Shibuya Incident arc detail check out this article.
