posted on by Egan Loo

The official website for the television anime of Gege Akutami's Jujutsu Kaisen manga unveiled the cast members and character designs for three second-year students of the Magic Technical College on Wednesday:

Mikako Komatsu as Maki Zenin, who appears to lack powers despite her elite family lineage

Kouki Uchiyama as Toge Inumaki, a descendant of a clan that can use the words they utter as weapons

Tomokazu Seki as Panda, who may look like an average panda at first glance, but is actually a metamorphosed cursed entity capable of human language

The previously announced cast members include:

Sunghoo Park (The God of High School) is directing the anime at MAPPA. Hiroshi Seko (Attack on Titan: Lost Girls, Banana Fish, Vinland Saga) is writing and supervising the scripts. Tadashi Hiramatsu (His and Her Circumstances, Yuri!!! on Ice, Parasyte -the maxim-) is designing the characters. Hiroaki Tsutsumi, Yoshimasa Terui, and Arisa Okehazama are composing the music.

The anime will premiere in the "Super Animeism" block on MBS, TBS and their affiliates in October, and will air on Fridays at 25:25 (effectively, Saturdays at 1:25 a.m.)

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 published the third volume in print on April 7. 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 Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March 2018. Shueisha published the manga's 11th volume on June 4.
