Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 22 Release Date and Time is now set in stone and in a matter of days, the anime series reaches its season finale.

Jujutsu Kaisen is a supernatural horror anime series following Yuji Itadori, an occult-loving student, who encountered a powerful curse one fateful day: the rotting finger of Sukuna, an evil curse, and attracted curses to their school. In order to save his friends, Yuji stood up to the evil curse and became the host of Sukuna, which, in the process, gave Yuji powers.

The day Yuji became the bearer of Sukuna, Yuji passed the point of no return and trains with a secret group of sorcerers to harness his newly gained powers and utilize them to defeat other curses despite being possessed by a curse himself.

Studio MAPPA's successful shounen anime series scored a staggering 8.55/10 in MyAnimeList and has since become a fan-favorite since the inception of the show. It also secured its spot as the anime of the year award recipient at Crunchyroll this year. That being said, Jujutsu Kaisen has been high on the pedestal when it comes to ratings and high gross profits making fans demand more in a second season.

Table of Contents

Jujutsu Kaisen is based on the Japanese supernatural shōnen manga series of the same name by Gege Akutami published in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump in March 2018.

Episode 21 is baseball season in the Kyoto Goodwill Event. Haruta was trying to be nice to the cursed spirit but being a curse, it doesn't understand. Mahito shows Haruta two fingers of Sukuna and comments that Jujutsu High possesses about six fingers of Sukuna. Mahito also talks about other cursed objects in the school such as the Cursed Wombs: Death Paintings and only Tengen knows where the door is to get to where Sukuna's fingers are.

Earlier, while at the beach, Getou, Jougo, Hanami, and Mahito discuss who is stronger between Tengen and Satoru. Getou replies that Tengen has immortality though not eternal youth and he doesn't interfere with the world besides maintaining barriers.

Getou also revealed that the finger is just under a single-layer seal and they would fail to retrieve it. It's Mahito's cursed energy guarding the fingers. Getou also expresses that they wouldn't want to mess with Satoru to make him direct the actions towards Mahito's main mission. Also, the risk of trapping the students inside will be higher.

Hanami asks whether the move would kill all the students including Yuji, Sukuna's vessel, and Getou said he won't be recommending such considering that their plan would be ruined if Yuji dies so instead of killing him, they plan to kidnap him and use him as a pawn.

Getou sets the plan. It will be on the 31st of October in Shibuya where they will be giving it their all to seal Satoru in reverse.

At Jujutsu High, Kyotaka, with Yaga, Utahime, Gakuganji, and Mei, updates Satoru about the status of the school and the casualties and second-grade sorcerers. Kyotaka also revealed that there are semi-first grade sorcerers, five assistant supervisors, and two cursed storehouse guards standing by Jujutsu High who are still waiting for the report of Leiri.

The cursed spirit who caused everything is the same one Nanami encountered before. Utahime suggested sharing the information amongst students but Yaga suggested otherwise which Gakujangi agreed to as well. Satoru feels that something isn't right with the higher-ups are worried about Yuji.

On the other hand, Yuji and her friends are having their time with pizza and later on, with baseball. Yuji accidentally hit Todou. Gakujangi and Yaga are conversing about whether Gakujangi still hates Yuji, he replied that it's not about hate or like, it's because Yuji exists beyond Jujutsu laws and Satoru is keeping him alive.
