Jujutsu Kaisen has seen tremendous growth in 2023, and it has been a very successful year for the franchise as it has become one of the highest-selling mangas of the year. The anime managed to grab a podium finish in the Global Demand Awards for one of the top 3 most in-demand shows of 2023, snubbing popular series such as Bleach and Naruto.
Recently, the series aired episode 21 of season 2, and was one of the best episodes with mesmerizing animation and OST. However, due to an anime original scene of Todo cross-dressing as a school girl, it managed to enrage a part of the Jujutsu Kaisen community, forcing the animator to apologize.
An anime original scene in the latest Jujustu Kaisen episode caused outrage among the fans, forcing the animator to apologize
Jujutsu Kaisen is arguably one of the most talked-about shows of 2023 and has a crazy fan following that watches every episode with extreme seriousness.
The series is on a heated run as terrible events unfold in Shibuya, and numerous fan-favorite characters get killed.
Nobara and Nanami were the latest characters to be the victims of Mahito, who killed them to raise the agony in Itadori.
Jujutsu Kaisen episode 21 concluded the battle between Mahito vs. Todo and Itadori, where Todo played a crucial role.
During the episode, we see a scene in Aoi Todo’s imagination as he and his idol, Nobuko Takada, fight Mahito together and defeat him.
The scene was received very well by the majority of the audience, but some fans felt enraged about Todo cross-dressing as a girl and issued death threats to the animator.
Facing such colossal criticism, the animator, Sota Shigetsugu, quickly apologized to the audience to calm them down.
What’s next for Jujutsu Kaisen?
The conclusion of the battle between Itadori and Mahito resulted in the victory of Itadori, and Todo’s arm was severed forever, and he lost his cursed technique.
At the last moment, as a beacon of hope, Geto arrives at the scene and asks Mahito if he wants help from him.
The upcoming episodes will be intense, as one fan favorite will make a sensational return to the story and play a significant role in the series.
The Shibuya arc is almost up for a wrap, with only a handful of episodes remaining before we say goodbye to Jujutsu Kaisen again.
But one thing is sure: all the upcoming episodes will be packed with action, and fans will enjoy them to the fullest.
