Cast of occult hit shares hallway with characters from other popular manga.
Like many long lasting anime / manga shots, Jujutsu kaisen the story is divided into arcs. One of them called the “Shibuya Incident Arc”, begins in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, and in a case of life imitating art there is a Jujutsu Kaisen taking place in the real Shibuya right now.
Over the past few days, fans have made their way through Shibuya Station, one of Tokyo’s most convenient rail hubs, was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by an impressive wall of art with gigantic illustrations from the cast of the series.
This is actually not the first time for Jujutsu kaisen to take over part of Shibuya Station, as you might recall the franchise did something similar in March. The spring incident in Shibuya, however, was a tribute to the Jujutsu kaisen manga, and so it was all in black and white.
This time around, the Jujutsu Kaisen anime shines the spotlight. This means that not only the cartoon illustrations of the charter, but the art is in colour too much!
The manga wall art was to celebrate the release of Jujutsu kaisen 15th volume collected, and the reason for the new one is to promote the merchandiser The current of Sega Jujutsu kaisen Sega Lucky Kuji, a 650 yen (US $ 6.30) blind buy / lottery at 7-Eleven and Ito Yokado stores where you can win prizes such as stuffed animals, pins, acrylic art stands of the characters in their paint-spotted outfits seen here.
You may have noticed another difference between this wall art and the last one, in that the new one is smaller than the previous one. Although this is kind of a bummer for fans of Jujutsu kaisen in particular, anime / manga lovers in general will be happy to know that the remaining space is also used for showcasing otaku arts, with the cast of the manga Kaiju n ° 8 adorning the room.
Shibuya Station itself is a network of tunnels that spans several blocks, so if you are looking for that specific location, the easiest way to get there is to go down the stairs next to the Hachiko ticket gate for the JR Yamanote line. Once at the bottom, head to the Fukutoshin Line Chuo subway ticket office (central) and you will spot the Jujutsu kaisen characters on the right side of the passage, where they will be until June 6.
