How Jujutsu Kaisen’s Creator Reacted to Season 2 Episode 8
As Jujutsu Kaisen creator Gege Akutami shared in a special comment following the release of Season 2 Episode 8 (as shared by @soukatsu_ on social media), “I’m really sorry for how I made [Ko-Guy]’s design so difficult to reproduce…It must have been really difficult to draw even though we re-did the character design…” Fans had their own reactions to how the fight between Ko-Guy and Yuji turned out in the episode itself, but thankfully the villain is only around for this single episode as Yuji defeated it with ease.
There will be more intense fights for the Shibuya Incident as Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 continues, so now is the perfect time to catch up with it all now streaming with Crunchyroll. They tease Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 8 is such, “Team Mei Mei are reassigned to a veil that has been lowered over Meiji Shrine Station. The team splits up and Yuji encounters a grasshopper curse assigned to protecting the veil. Elsewhere Satoru Gojo encounters Jogo, Hanami, and Choso.”
