Jujutsu Kaisen fans are calling for this unexpected change for the anime

Published

Jujutsu Kaisen may have taken the world by storm in recent years, but some fans have made an unusual request regarding its animated adaptation.

The worldwide popularity of Jujutsu Kaisen is clearly no longer to be proven. The anime, adapted from Gege Akutami’s shonen of the same name, has only had two seasons and a prequel film so far. However, that did not prevent it from entering the Guinness Book of Records earlier in the year, becoming the most requested animated series of 2024.

However, viewers feel that the anime lacks lighter moments. Jujutsu Kaisen is renowned for the many tragic deaths of its characters, and when they don’t die, they experience events that are all too often depressing. In short, the work is filled with drama of all kinds, and there are not enough comic moments according to some.

Initially, this allowed Jujutsu Kaisen to stand out from the other most popular shonens, such as One Piece And Naruto. However, after a long dark period, fans are now clamoring for lighter, humorous moments between different incidents in the main plot.

Fillers are one of the most hated aspects of anime because they are not part of the original story. However, there are also benefits to these so-called “filler” episodes. Indeed, fillers can help to develop and extend the universe of a work, but also to create deeper links between characters.

Jujutsu Kaisen is notably known for not having filler episodes, faithfully adapting Akutami’s manga. This works in favor of the anime, but it also deprives the series of lighter moments, which could thus compensate for the tragic dimension of the story.

In season 1, the anime compensates for this by adding some comedic moments at the end of episodes, labeling them as “Juju Stroll”. But these small segments after the end credits (or ending) are missing in season 2. This displeased many spectators who asked for more.

“No more fillers… Please… I can’t stand all these deaths…” wrote one user on Reddit, while another added: “Ah, yes, Jujutsu Kaisen is the only fandom that wants more fillers. »

A fan also pointed out: “I think the lack of fillers or lighter arcs in newer shonen anime is an overcorrection of all the fillers we had in older shonen anime. This is very unfortunate because often I just want to see the characters do hilarious things. »

The anime Jujutsu Kaisen will return, but it remains to be seen whether fans’ wish for this change will come true in season 3.
