Choso realizing that Yuji is his brother after their fight during the Shibuya Incident in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2.

If You’re on the Fence About ‘Jujutsu Kaisen,’ Maybe the Episode Count Will Persuade You

Sooooo I don’t know if you all have heard, but there’s this new anime called Jujutsu Kaisen that everyone has been raving about, and people have been saying I should give it a shot. I’m just not sure I’m ready. I mean, how many episodes of Jujutsu Kaisen are there?

I just got out of a really long-term relationship with Naruto, and honestly it was pretty toxic. When it was good, it was REALLY good. But just when I thought that Naruto was about to take our relationship to a new level and get serious about our future together, that’s when the filler would start. I eventually just couldn’t deal with it anymore. The finale was really dramatic and explosive, and then I had to take a break. Once Naruto decided to come out with Boruto I knew it was really over. We were just in totally different places than where we started.

Is Jujutsu Kaisen gonna commit and give me plot? Or is it all filler?

I just want a serious relationship with the next anime I commit to. I don’t want to be preparing to commit only to deal with a random 10-episode “beach day” arc. I’ve been there and done that. It was fun for a while, but now I’m over it. I’m ready for a mature, 24-episode series that’s gonna really sweep me off my feet. Is two killer seasons of 12 episodes each really too much to ask?

Okay, so, green flag: Jujutsu Kaisen season 1 is 24 episodes. Longer than I’d like, but we can work with it. Red flag: season 2 is 23 episodes. Why won’t Jujutsu Kaisen commit to giving me one last episode? Am I not worth it? I am SO worth it.
