The first volume of the Blu-ray/DVD of “Jujutsu Kaisen” is scheduled to be released on January 20, 2021.
Therefore, we have to wait until late January 2021 to get the exact sales data, but we can judge the good and bad sales to some extent from the reservation status on Amazon.
The disc reservation of Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the most popular anime in the fall 2020 school year. School Idol Club” among the anime of the 2020 Fall Cool, and it is expected to be one of the best in the same cool.
And even better than that is the distribution.
Domestically, it is ranked at the top of ABEMA’s popular video ranking (pay-per-view), and boasts the top distribution record among the anime of the 2020 Fall Cool.
It has already surpassed 100 million views on China’s Bilibili Video as of December 6, 2020, far surpassing the popularity of “Tonikaku Kawaii” in China.
Crunchyroll, a distribution service run by an American company, has also maintained the top position for the same school.
One of the main reasons why the anime has gained so much momentum is the response to episode 7, “Swoop.
This episode focuses on the battle between the main character, Yuji Itadori’s mentor and the strongest spellcaster, Satoru Gojo, and the special class of spell spirits.
Since the battle was between two people who were much higher ranked than the previous ones, a lot of effort was put into the drawing, and the battle was speedy and flashy, but even more shocking was the revelation of Gojo-sensei’s true face.
Since Gojo-sensei usually covers his eyes with a cloth or sunglasses, this episode was the first time his true face was shown in the anime.
Seeing the young and overwhelmingly handsome man, as well as the reason why he is the strongest, attracted a sudden surge of female fans.
As a result of the buzz on social networking sites, the pre-order rankings for each disc volume and the number of followers of the official account went up significantly.
Works that have produced such divine episodes tend to receive a reputation for being “easy to be bitten” and “easy to be talked about,” and tend to be developed into anime on a long-term basis because they are not just temporarily popular, but foresee further explosive hits.
Taking this into consideration, the second season of Jyujutsu Kaisen seems to be solid.
The biggest focus is on whether it can become the “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba of second”.

Both the growth from the decision of the anime adaptation to the start of the broadcast and the growth during the broadcast of the anime have been higher for Jujutsu Kaisen.
Therefore, if it continues to grow at this rate, it is not impossible that it could become the “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba of second”.
In recent years, the entertainment industry has been in a situation where it is easy for extreme concentration to occur.
We live in an age where popular works are spread through social networking sites and people all over the country want to share them.
Now that the last volume of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has been released, it is quite possible that the next boom will be in spell casting if this huge boom dies down.
We cannot ignore the fact that the genre is dark fantasy.
Since the release of “Attack on Titan”, this genre tends to be big when it hits the mark, and in fact,Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is also in the dark fantasy category.
In fact, “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” is also in the dark fantasy category.
It is also a work that is well received by women.
As has been the trend in recent years, support from the female demographic is essential for a work to become an explosive hit.
In this respect, Jujutsu Kaisen meets the requirements.
However, it still needs to be boosted again and again in order to become a hit of the level of Oniketsu.
For example, Onimitsune has a strong Japanese element, and each character has a sympathetic past, and the close-up on this has made it more acceptable to the parent generation.
In addition, not only the main characters, but also each of the pillars had their own backgrounds that were delved into, and each of them gained so many fans that they became the lord of their own castle, and female characters such as Shinobu and Kanawo had a huge following among small children. The popularity of the characters spread to various fields at a tremendous pace, and this seems to have led to such an explosive boom.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that in order for this kind of phenomenon to occur in the Jujutsu Kaisen, it depends not only on the main characters at the top of the popularity polls, but also on the rising popularity of the other characters.
