This year's 52nd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Gege Akutami's Jujutsu Kaisen manga will have a television anime adaptation.

The anime's main cast members include Junya Enoki as Yūji Itadori, Yūma Uchida as Megumi Fushiguro, and Asami Seto as Nobara Kugisaki. Akutami and the three cast members will appear at a stage presentation at the Jump Festa '20 event on December 22.

The magazine's previous issue teased an important announcement for the manga.

Viz Media published the manga's first three chapters in English simultaneously with Japan as part of its Jump Start initiative. When the company then switched to its new Shonen Jump model, it began publishing new chapters of the manga digitally. Viz Media will begin releasing the manga in print this winter. Shueisha is also publishing the manga on its MANGA Plus website, and it describes the manga:

For some strange reason, Yuji Itadori, despite his insane athleticism would rather just hang out with the Occult Club. However, her soon finds out that the occult is as real as it gets when his fellow club members are attacked! Meanwhile, the mysterious Megumi Fushiguro is tracking down a special-grade cursed object, and his search leads him to Itadori...

Akutami launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in March 2018. Shueisha published the manga's seventh volume on October 4, and will publish the manga's eighth and ninth volumes on January 4.
