Jujutsu Kaisen’s second season quickly gained a massive audience despite having only 5 episodes in the first cour. The Hidden Inventory/ Premature Death arc ended last week with the fifth episode. And next, Toho Animation will adapt one of the best JJK arcs — the Shibuya Incident arc – for the season’s second cour. Anime viewers have previously been teased about this occurrence in season 1, whereas manga readers are fully aware of what the second cour of the second season has in store for us. So, keep reading to discover the release date and time of episode 6 of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2.
Jujutsu Kaisen Shibuya Incident Arc Release Date and Time
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is confirmed to have a total of 23 episodes. This season is split into two cours to release the anime adaptation of two of the best arcs in JJK. The first cour features the Hidden Inventory/ Premature Death arc, which just ended with a total of 5 episodes.
Also known as Gojo’s Past arc, we saw him dreaming about his past. It includes the battle between Gojo and Toji Fushiguro as well as how Gojo and Geto’s friendship ended, and they went in different directions. The first cour concluded with him waking up and returning to the present with his student trio – Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara. Check out the second cour trailer attached above to see what’s in store.
Ever since then, fans are eagerly waiting to witness the start of another mindblowing arc, the Shibuya Incident arc. This arc will start from episode 6 of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2, which will be released on August 31, 2023. The release time for JJK episode 6 is 11:56 PM JST, as confirmed by an official tweet.
The second cour will span over a period of 4+ months as it will run from episodes 6 to 23 weekly. If you want to learn more about this season, follow our dedicated Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 episode guide here.

There is also another break on 24th August, where the latest episode won’t be available to stream as there is another special program airing in Japan.
