Key takeaways from Jujustu Kaisen Season Episode 6 news:
- Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 6 is delayed for a planned break by Mappa to prepare for the Shibuya arc. The break will last about 3 weeks, with the next episode airing on August 31st.
- The Shibuya Incident arc is extensive in the manga, justifying the break. Mappa’s decision to rest before covering this arc’s intense plot moments is understandable.
I am sure quite a few of us panicked a little when we didn’t see a new episode of Jujutsu Kaisen at the usual time. I definitely did, at least. Why the seemingly random break and when does Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 episode 6 come out? Well, that is what we are here to talk about today.
I panicked for a moment when I thought this year’s winter season would repeat with multiple delays, but luckily, it’s just a planned break by Mappa.
So let’s start with what happened and go over all the news first. Then we will talk a little about the Shibuya arc and my thoughts. So welcome back to another news article. Today we are talking about Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2!
When will Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 6 air?
Hey JUJUTSU KAISEN fans! Please note that there will be no new episodes over the next few weeks as we gear up for the Shibuya Incident Arc. JUJUTSU KAISEN Season 2 will return with Episode 6 on August 31st! #JujutsuKaisen pic.twitter.com/espXgma5ez

So, as you can see here it is a planned break and Mappa is taking some time off to prepare for the Shibuya arc. Which is understandable. The sixth episode will air on 31st August, taking a break of about 3 weeks. The series will likely end normally till episode 24 after that. I am unsure why there is a break, but I am okay with Mappa taking it since their pipeline is busy.
On August 10th, there will be a recap of the Hidden Inventory arc and prequel movie. August 17th will have a recap of the first season, and August 24th has special programming on Japanese TV, so nothing on that day.
The Shibuya Incident arc in the manga is massive. I understand why Mappa is taking a break before starting the arc. This also divides this season into two nice sections, the flashback arc, and the Shibuya arc. The arc features a lot of big plot moments as we finally see Mahito and Suguru making their move. It is around 57 chapters long so it is only fair to rest a bit before covering an arc of this scale. Oh and, Okkotsu will make an appearance in this arc too.
I know people will say that Mappa should’ve split the season in cours of 12 episodes but that was not possible, as you saw the flashback arc was only 5 episodes. They would have to leave the Shibuya arc in an awkward place if they wanted to split the season. So they’re taking a break like this. Mappa should really space their work out a bit, they just came out airing Vinland Saga and Hell’s Paradise last season too.
That is all for now. I am really excited to watch the Shibuya arc in the anime finally. I don’t mind them taking a rest before the arc as I know it is going to be one hell of an arc to animate. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!
