Overall review of Episode 6 Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen

As the new season unpacks with several exciting elements one can sense the skyrocketing spirits of the anime fans stronger than ever. After a short breach from the series, everybody has once again their eyes fixated on the further escapades of the protagonists accompanied by light humor and hysteria. The entire episode could be bifurcated into two parts. The beginning is a fun respite showcasing the daily lives of youthful characters. However the story topples completely in another interval and cascades strong knowledge about what awaits us next. The animation was as always supremely sublime, shaking the tectonic plates of the viewer’s visual peripheries while the new opening song caught attention without letting it go for a while. Now the audience hopes for Mahito’s defeat and Kokochi to pour the truth into Satoru successfully.
