Director: Park Sunghoo
I had been working in Korea back then, so I received an offer thorough Skype. I immediately read the original manga since I haven't, and I soon got very motivated because the story was so interesting.
My daughters are also the fans of the manga, and they recognized my work for the first time, although I am in the industry for 17 years.
I want to improve the breath of the characters into a higher level with the acting of the voice actors and live animations.
Please look forward to the Jujutsu Kaisen in anime.

I read the manga after I had received the offer, and I was immediately charmed by the interesting and cool story…it is like a Jump manga I had read when I was young. I am honored to be able to participate in the production of such wonderful work.
The points to see are the interaction between the characters and the fighting scenes. The characters from “Jujutsu Kaisen” have much more uniqueness than the ones in other works, and that uniqueness cause chemical reactions when they interact. Fighting scenes will be great as well, and I want to see it as soon as possible.

I am very nervous because my role is very important, but I want to express his power as the King of Curse.
Please watch the anime!

We are in such an emergency situation.
I think the anime production will not go in a way it supposed to be. I, Akutami, will work hard as much as I don't disturb them. By the way, I took a look at the drawing for episode 1. The otaku from the same generation will drool for sure. I look forward to completion!
