Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode #20 Release Date & Time: All You Need to Know
After a harrowing episode #19, Jujutsu Kaisen fans are anxiously awaiting Season 2 episode #20 to see the aftermath of Nobara’s apparent death. Each of the last two episodes has delivered an absolutely brutal tragedy, which means that episode #20 could as well. However, the suffering that Jujutsu Kaisen inflicts upon both its characters and its fans makes it unique among many Shonen series.
What Time Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode #20 Releases
If it isn’t delayed, Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 episode #20 will be airing in Japan at midnight Japanese Standard Time (JST) on Thursday, December 7. It will be simulcast on Crunchyroll on December 7 at 9 a.m. Pacific Time (PDT), 11 a.m. Central Time (CT), and 12 p.m. Eastern Time (EST). For Jujutsu Kaisen fans in the UK, the episode will be released at 17:00 British Summer Time (BST).

What Happened in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode #19?
In episode #19, the battle against Mahito and his clone continued on two fronts. Yuji confronted the more powerful version underground, while Nobara fought the duplicate on the streets. Nobara discovered that her Resonance cursed technique was particularly effective against Mahito, making her a major threat to the curse. As a result, the clone chose to retreat, leaving Yuji to deliver an incredibly cathartic beatdown on the weakened main body. However, Mahito managed to escape the pummeling and reunited with his fleeing clone. At this point, he touched Nobara’s face, causing it to explode and apparently killing her. The episode also featured a flashback to Nobara’s childhood before her death.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode #20 Will Unleash Yuji’s Rage
Yuji was already furious at Mahito for his disturbing villainous acts and the brutal murders of Junpei and Nanami. This anger propelled him to deliver a relentless beatdown on the curse in the previous episodes. With Nobara, one of his closest friends, seemingly dead, his emotions are expected to intensify even further. This could result in Yuji fighting with even more ferocity to avenge Nobara’s death. However, it is also possible that her demise might completely break him, leaving him at Mahito’s mercy. In such a scenario, someone else might have to step in and assume the fight against Mahito, which could potentially be underwhelming.
Considering the behind-the-scenes problems at Studio MAPPA, it remains uncertain what level of quality the remaining episodes of the season will exhibit. Nevertheless, recent episodes have showcased some truly great animation, giving fans hope that future episodes will feature more hype moments. If Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 episode #20 can reach the heights of the series’ best fights, it will undoubtedly be another exceptional installment in the Shibuya Incident arc.
Don’t miss Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 episode #20 when it airs on Crunchyroll on December 7, 2023. Stay tuned for more intense and emotionally charged episodes in the upcoming weeks.
