However, another Jujutsu Kaisen staff member spoke out about the difficult conditions during the production of Season 2 of the MAPPA series as animator Shinsaku Kozuma revealed that he only had 4 days to draw the scenes of me.
Kozuma is a regular animator for Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 and has shared his personal experiences on X (formerly Twitter). “The lack of time is pretty terrible,” he said, followed by wishing a fellow animator well after they revealed they would never work for MAPPA again. ” –Yes, I promise right now that I will improve next time… So, I also want to see his great image in other works he will do.” Looking back on his time, especially the infamous Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 41, Kozuma added: “For episode 41, I only had 4 days to do it because it was requested by Go-kun. I could only laugh bitterly. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°).”
Full Revival: Shonen Jump’s JJK promotional video raises hopes for Gojo’s return
After releasing a special promotional video for volume 25 of the manga, many fans believe that Jujutsu Kaisen is teasing the return of Satoru Gojo.
Kozuma was the animator on Season 2, Episode 17 (41st episode overall in the series). Via Atwiki, he also animated Episodes 25, 30, 31, 43, 46, and 47. This one is especially unbalanced, with areas of gorgeous animation contrasting with a clean episode is not completed. A tweet by an animator after the episode is also the source of the popular legend that Episode 41 is “only 30% complete”. It was broadcast at a time when there was widespread criticism of MAPPA. Jujutsu Kaisen then announced an 18-hour streaming pause for the next episode, reportedly to give staff more time to complete the episodes. This will be followed by a permanent streaming delay from next week onwards.
The animator that Kozuma wants for his future is none other than famous One Piece and Jujutsu Kaisen animator Chansard Vincent, who recently revealed why he would never work for MAPPA too. Arguably, the highlight of the infamous unfinished Episode 41 was Chansard’s arc, where his famous description of the fight between Sukuna and Mahoraga went viral on social media. While many employees are still willing to return for the new “Kill Game,” MAPPA’s treatment of employees is leading to major talent not wanting to return in the future. Chainsaw Man Season 1 director Ryu Nakayama, who recently founded his own studio, has previously expressed his desire for a future free of “power harassment” and “moral harassment.”
