Takehito Koyasu joined the voice cast as one of the fan-favorite characters Toji Fushiguro, and Anna Nagase joined as Riko Amanai. The main cast is reprising their roles. They include Takahiro Sakurai as Suguru Geto, Yuichi Nakamura as Satoru Gojo, and Aya Endo as Shoko Ieiri. They’ve also released the new character designs for several of the characters.
Studio MAPPA animated both the 24-episode first season and movie for the franchise. Akutami Gege writes and draws the original manga, which is licensed by VIZ Media in English. MangaMonster provides free Manga for fans with high quality scans. Crunchyroll streams both the anime and movie, and they describe the story:
Despite leading a completely typical high school life, Yuji Itadori is a boy with extraordinary physical strength. He eats Ryomen Sukuna's finger one day in order to save a classmate who is under a curse, absorbing the curse into his own soul. From that point on, he and Ryomen Sukuna share a single body. Itadori is accepted into the organization that battles curses, Tokyo Jujutsu High School, under the guidance of the most potent sorcerer, Satoru Gojo. And so the heroic story of a lad who turned into a curse in order to exorcise a curse—a life he could never return to—begins.
