First JUJUTSU KAISEN Trailer Drops But Fans Are Worried It Will Be A Netflix Exclusive

One of the most highly anticipated new manga series of the year is Studio MAPPA's adaptation Jujutsu Kaisen (Sorcery Fight) but some social media activity seems to indicate that it's a Netflix exclusive.

Earlier this week, the first trailer for Jujutsu Kaisen (Sorcery Fight) dropped to rave reviews. With the first glimpse of footage, it was also confirmed that MAPPA is the studio behind the production and that the upcoming TV anime is set to premiere in April. The Jujutsu Kaisen manga is currently serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump and is one of the manga magazine's most popular titles.

The upcoming adaptation definitely looks crisp and clean however, it's the below Tweet from Netflix Japan that has North American anime fans slightly worried. The Tweet simply states that MAPPA's involvement means higher expectations. However, the mere fact that Netflix Japan is interacting with the official Jujutsu Kaisen Twitter account is a likely indicator that the series will be a Netflix Japan exclusive. That would mean that the series would air week-to-week in Japan but the rest of the world would have to wait until the series concluded before it officially became available. At best, Jujutsu Kaisen wouldn't become available for North American Netflix subscribers until Spring 2021.

Most recently Carole & Tuesday, Beastars and Dorohedoro are examples of popular anime series that were held in "Netflix jail" while new episodes aired weekly in Japan. Most otaku believe that not having anime fans around the globe all watching a show at the same time lowers a series' chances to become the next big franchise (i.e. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, My Hero Academia, etc.).

Stay tuned to AnimeMojo for further updates as we look to verify Netflix's involvement with the Jujutsu Kaisen TV anime. We should have confirmation fairly soon as we head into the Summer season.
