Though Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 already ended before 2023 came to a close, nobody could forget how the Shibuya Incident arc stunned the viewers with its great storyline and captivating action scenes. Fortunately, fans will experience these breathtaking sequences again as the anime has announced the release of Episodes 41-44 or the second season’s Episodes 17-20 in theaters. But to treat fans even more, Episode 17, titled Thunderclap, Part 2, will feature additional cuts and revised footage.

The anime’s official website revealed its plan for a selection event screening of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episodes 17-20. These episodes highlight the final stage of the Shibuya Incident arc, where Yuji Itadori starts the fight in Shibuya. But if this is not enough to excite fans, the anime teased a revision of Episode 17 to correct the footage that would be different from what fans saw on TV.

“Episode 41 will be screened in a Blu-ray and DVD version with some additional cuts from the 2023 TV broadcast and distribution, and the footage has been corrected,” it said.
