Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the most popular Japanese shonen anime series right now, so it's not surprising that it has a huge demand from Netflix subscribers. The anime adaptation of the manga of the same title by Gege Akutami turned out to be a huge hit when the first season premiered in November 2020, and as of April 2022, the manga had over 65 million copies in circulation worldwide.

The production behind the aniem adaptation is studio MAPPA, who has done an excellent job animating the dark fantasy series about a high school student named Yuji Itadori, who joins a secret organization of Jujutsu Sorcerers in order to kill a dark Curse known as Ryomen Sukuna.

In order to save his Occult Research Club friends from a curse, Yuji swallows a cursed object that houses Sukuna. Yuji is able to retain his body but the Jujutsu sorcerers sentence him to death. His death sentence is postponed when Yuji agrees to join the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School where he will learn how to control the cursed energy himself and find the remaining fingers of Sakuna.

No, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 is not available to stream on Netflix in most regions including U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada, Asia, and others. The streaming giant has a rigorous geo-restriction policy that limits subscribers' viewing options to what is accessible in their location.

If you search for "Jujutsu Kaisen" on Netflix, you will only see a list of other anime titles that are currently available on the streaming service, but you will have to look elsewhere if you want to stream this popular shonen anime series.

One of the few regions where Jujutsu Kaisen is available to stream on Netflix is in Japan, where all the episodes aired weekly when they were first released. Unfortunately, it's not as simple as just using a VPN to access Netflix Japan's library because none of the Season 1 episodes available to stream have English subtitles, and the only ones available to stream are in the original Japanese dub.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 is reportedly also available to stream on Netflix in Hong Kong, India, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, and Philippines.

Netflix is known for adding popular anime titles like Naruto, Attack on Titan, Demon Slayer, and One Piece to its streaming service, so it's easy to assume that the streaming giant will eventually add Jujutsu Kaisen to its library, but at the time of this writing, Netflix hasn't announced any plans to add the popular shonen series to major regions like North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia/New Zealand, and Africa.

With the series currently available to stream on HBO Max and other popular streaming services, it's unlikely that we will see Jujutsu Kaisen come out on Netflix anytime soon, but you can never rule out the possibility.

Outside of Asia, Crunchyroll has the exclusive streaming license for Jujutsu Kaisen, so this is the one of the official ways to watch the anime.

As mentioned above, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 is available to stream on HBO Max, which has the English dub version of the anime series.
