The Weekly Stuff Podcast #421 – The Jujutsu Kaisen Episode: Reviewing Season 1 and Jujutsu Kaisen 0
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.
This week’s episode is all about the Shonen anime sensation Jujutsu Kaisen, which recently saw its first film, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, released in American theaters to surprising levels of success. It’s one of our favorite anime in recent years, and we’re finally taking the time to break down the first season, all the amazing characters, the best fights, the killer music, and the unholy amounts of swagger embodied by Gojo Satoru-sensei. If Kimetsu no Yaiba – which we’ve talked about plenty here! – is the archetypal Shonen anime elevated to new dramatic heights, then Jujutsu Kaisen is Shonen anime distilled to almost dangerous amounts of weapons-grade fun. And the movie, a prequel based on the 4-chapter ‘pilot’ manga Gege Akutami wrote before the main series, is pretty damn good too. And you’ll also hear about Jonathan’s absolutely nightmarish week of travel, which, on the plus side, gave him a lot of time on planes to binge the first 3 seasons of Attack on Titan.
