Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 23 Release Date and Time seal a spot on the calendar as in a matter of a few days, the anime series is nearing its season finale as to what happens in between the curses and the sorcerers.
Jujutsu Kaisen revolves around the story of the occult-loving student and his encounter with a powerful evil curse, Yuji Itadori became the host of Sukuna’s curse by taking upon himself its rotting finger of Sukuna in order to save his friends. In the process, Yuji, being the host of the curse, acquired extraordinary powers of the curses whilst being possessed at the same time.
Yuji passes the point of no return by taking on himself the curse of Sukuna. Because of this, other curses are attracted to the school. Yuji trains with a secret group of sorcerers to harness his newly gained powers and master those to become a sorcerer himself to fight off the curses that are attracted to the school.
Studio MAPPA’s successful shounen anime series 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. It also has a light novel series. In January 2021, Jujutsu Kaisen ranked second in Oricon’s weekly manga ranking being bested by Attack on Titan which ranked first.
The chart-topping anime has since become a fan-favorite since the inception of the show. It even bagged the anime of the year award in Crunchyroll this year. Jujutsu Kaisen has been high on the pedestal with its high ratings and great reviews making it possible for the anime series to secure a second season as it is very well capable to complete another 24-episode run.

In Episode 22, Yuji scores a win for Tokyo in the Kyoto Goodwill Event as he hits a home run. The anime series now enters the Death Painting Arc of the manga series focusing on the cursed womb and Sukuna’s fingers stolen by Mahito from Jujutsu High.
Hanami survived the attack of Gojo and will be returning to give the sorcerers a fight. Meanwhile, Itadori and friends will investigate a series of mysterious deaths happening in the city which are connected with Megumi as she is a trigger to Sukuna. Three male victims died in similar conditions and it is all because of a cursed spirit.
Itadori, Fushiguro, and Kugisaki went off to investigate the deaths as such victims were from the same school, one Fushiguro used to attend to. The victims were found underneath the Yasohachi bridge which is a popular spiritual spot. The three discovered that the incidents hit closer to home as Tsumiki, the older sister of Fushiguro, is involved.
Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 23 and all the other episodes of the anime series, may it be previous or the latest, can be streamed online through Crunchyroll in its original Japanese audio with English subtitles. Recently, Jujutsu Kaisen’s English dub has been announced as well by Crunchyroll.

Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 23 is slated for release on March 20, 2021, at 1: 45 PM EST/ 1:45 AM JST for the premium users of Crunchyroll along with the previous episode, Episode 22, as it is also slated for release at the same release date and time for free and for the general public to view.

Down with only three episodes, Jujutsu Kaisen is nearing its season finale but the story just opened another door for the possibility of the second season as the Death Painting arc is a long arc to take on and given that there are only three episodes left, there would be not much time to fully appreciate and tackle the story arc with such limited time.
Next week, the new episode of Jujutsu Kaisen arrives with the investigation unfurling before the eyes of Itadori and his friends as they investigate the crimes that have been happening in the city and how is it related to them.
