Jujutsu Kaisen has easily become one of the most popular Shonen anime in recent years together with Demon Slayer. As Shonen Jump usually does with their most popular manga series, the magazine recently conducted a popularity poll for Jujutsu Kaisen characters. This isn’t the first time that such a popularity poll was conducted, and the top 10 list does not come as much of a surprise.
However, the order of the most popular characters may come as a surprise to some Jujutsu Kaisen fans. Even though Yujui Itadori is the main protagonist of the story, his number #1 rank of the most popular characters was lost to Megumi, a member of the Zenin family. Back in 2019, Yujui ranked as the top popular character in Jujutsu Kaisen on the same popularity poll.
The renewed list comes with more surprises from manga fans, which may apply to anime fans as well. Apparently, Sukuna is no longer among the top 10 popular characters. Moreover, a character that is yet to make his debut in the anime series joined the top 10 list instead.
Japan will soon get to see the new Jujutsu Kaisen movie, dubbed Jujutsu Kaisen 0 while there is still no confirmation on the exact date when the movie will be released worldwide. The movie will feature one of the most popular characters, Gojo Satoru. Anime fans will also get a chance to meet a new character, Yuuta Okkotsu, a boy troubled by the ghost of his best friend Rika.
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 release date has not yet been confirmed, but it is more likely that the second season will happen in 2022.
