Collaborations are nothing new in the anime world. If people had watched Gintama, they would know better than how many easter eggs there are in that anime. Often, cover pages of several manga also hide easter eggs within them. When Naruto Shippuden was nearing its end, One Piece dedicated a cover page to Naruto. But the collaboration between Jujutsu Kaisen and One Piece is something we rarely see.

Hearing the discussion, Megumi Fushiguro said that if he becomes the captain, then he will allow punching Satoru Gojo possible without any time frame or limitations, and he will also make the ship’s bow a dog. After putting this down, he was chosen as the captain of the Jujutsu Kaisen pirates. The bow of the ship was the face that Gege Akutami used to identify themselves in this work.

More on Jujutsu Kaisen

Jujutsu Kaisen is going through a glorious time in the anime and the manga. The fans are loving season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen, and the manga is currently nearing the culling games. Even though Jujutsu Kaisen is not a part of the modern Big Three, it is considered to be part of the “Shonen Dark Trio.” Gege Akutami has done a great job with the serialization. They are trying their best to make it as good as possible, even though few people blame them for favoring the antagonists’.

JJK has several comedic moments, which are like a breath of fresh air among the dark, gloomy aura that surrounds the anime. But none of them come close to the Jujutsu Kaisen Pirates. Even if it was just a single-page collaboration between them and One Piece, it will be a hit among the fans if it ever gets animated. After all, Megumi Fushiguro as Tony Tony Chopper is unheard of.
