Animator of Jujutsu Kaisen acknowledges releasing incomplete episode

Fans were shocked by the incredible animation in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 17, yet several scenes remained incomplete, as revealed by one animator who has subsequently come out.

The most difficult battle in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 17 takes place when Sukuna shows up in time to stop Mahoraga and save Megumi. The episode includes a cliffhanger with Nanami, the battle between two monsters, the devastation of Shibuya, Yuji’s collapse, and a crucial indication regarding Sukuna’s ambitions with Megumi.
The episode lasted only twenty minutes, but in that time, a lot transpired, and things would only get worse. Vincent Chansard, a One Piece animator who worked on Zoro vs. King, Gear 5, and other amazing episodes, even offered cuts to this episode.

Although the latest JJK episode has received nothing but positive reviews, viewers have also pointed out that many of the scenes appear rushed and unfinished. Consequently, the reality behind it has been disclosed by one of the animators.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 17 wasn’t finished

NobiliRoccia, a JJK animator, revealed: “JJK S2 Episode #17 is not done. Though I’m glad so many people enjoy it, I wish the crew could have finished it. Now, just thirty percent of the desired view is seen on screen.

“It is really frustrating me.” I wish I had more time to complete additional scenes. There are currently too many mistakes in the episode for me to enjoy it in its current state.
Fans, however, are very appreciative of the animators’ labor of love; one user commented, “Huh, that was only 30%?” The animation was crazy enough as it was. You guys made excellent use of the time you had.

Another person said, “Give those employees their medals!” To be honest, they should get recognition if the animation was even that excellent at 30%. Crazy!”

Fans of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 are well aware of the production breakdown, as they frequently accuse MAPPA of overworking its staff. An episode postponement has been requested by animators, but the production team has turned it down.
It is evident that animators work on episodes until the very last minute before their publication, as seen by the 4-5 hour delay in the latest episode’s preview stills. Several animators are expressing their displeasure on Twitter and X, and the workload is just becoming heavier.
