Have you ever wanted to watch Jujutsu Kaisen on a streaming platform that’s not Crunchyroll? Well, Funimation is here to help with that.

As someone who hasn’t personally watched this, I’m confused by people in the same uniform fighting each other. Is this a civil war arc, or something like that?

Funimation is proud to announce that they are now streaming Jujutsu Kaisen on their streaming platform. Specifically, Funimation subscribers can watch this hit dark fantasy anime starting on October 4, 2021. Which is today, as of the time of this writing. In fact, you can click on this link here to go to Funimation’s own website to check it out for yourself.

“We know Funimation fans will be excited to explore the world JUJUTSU KAISEN. The narrative, animation and characters of JUJUTSU KAISEN all make up a masterful tapestry of storytelling.

Asa Suehira, Chief Content Officer for Funimation Global Group

As for other details: the entire 24-episode anime will be available on Funimation in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand in both Japanese audio with English subtitles, and English dub. Plus, Europe will get Spanish, French, German, and Russian subs and dubs via Funimation’s Wakanim streaming service. However, I must stress that you need to be a subscriber to watch this anime at this time. Meaning that you have to pay up for that subscription. If you want to watch it for free, then head on over to Crunchyroll.

Jujutsu Kaisen: Details

The Nintendo 64 controller was totally made for Ryomen Sukuna.

So what is Jujutsu Kaisen about? Well, as I mentioned, it’s a dark fantasy story, but it’s also a supernatural action-adventure story as well. A lot of people described the show as a lot like Bleach, but with an even darker story. The official synopsis from Funimation reveals a bit more about it:

“Yuji Itadori is a high school student with amazing physical abilities, living a normal life. But one day, in order to save his schoolmate from a “curse,” he eats a special grade cursed object, “Sukuna’s Finger,” and gets the curse within his soul. Itadori, who now shares his body with the cursed spirit “Sukuna,” transfers to an institution specializing in curses, Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School, to be guided by the most powerful jujutsu sorcerer, Satoru Gojo… A story of a high school student who carries a curse in order to exorcise it. With no way of turning back, his fierce tale begins to unfold…”

When you have your main character eat a finger to gain cursed powers right at the very beginning, you know you’re in for a really dark fantasy show.


Jujutsu Kaisen is heading over to Funimation. In fact, by the time you’re reading this, the anime should already be on Funimation, since it starts streaming on October 4, 2021. It’s only for Funimation subscribers at the moment though, so you need to pay up to see it. You might want to check out Crunchyroll if you want to watch this hit dark fantasy anime for free.
