Jujutsu Kaisen Anime Reveals Cast, Designs of Magic Tech College’s 2nd-Year Students

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Gege Akutami‘s Jujutsu Kaisen manga revealed the cast members and character designs for three second-year students of the Magic Technical College:

Komatsu Mikako as Maki Zenin, who appears to lack powers despite her elite family lineage

Comment from Komatsu Mikako (role of Maki Teinin)

I think the feud between the sisters is a major obstacle that must be overcome when playing Maki. Even though I read the original, the scene was very impressive, so I am looking forward to dubbing. The strength and violence that she can see. I hope that the circumstances behind it will be played carefully.

Uchiyama Kouki as Toge Inumaki, a descendant of a clan that can use the words they utter as weapons

Comment from Uchiyama Koki

Since I will not be participating in the recording yet, I will read the original exactly and listen to the opinions of the staff and perform. I will do my best to make the anime more attractive than the original fan’s expectations and to attract those who do not know this work yet.

Seki Tomokazu as Panda, who may look like an average panda at first glance, but is actually a metamorphosed cursed entity capable of human language

Comment from Seki Tomokazu

Although it looks like a panda, it has a common sense of humanity. While valuing the gap, I would like to perform with a little personality. I’m looking forward to acting in a word.

The previously announced cast members include:

  • Junya Enoki as Yūji Itadori
  • Yūma Uchida as Megumi Fushiguro
  • Asami Seto as Nobara Kugisaki
  • Yūichi Nakamura as Satoru Gojō
  • Junichi Suwabe as Sukuna Ryōmen
