Yuichi Nakamura (Satoru Gojo): "I am very happy because it is something I never expected."
Toho Animation's official YouTube channel has started streaming a 30-second announcement PV for the forthcoming TV anime adaptation of Gege Akutami's dark fantasy manga JUJUTSU KAISEN to introduce its four main cast members and a teaser visual. It was first screened at the Jump Festa 2020 event on December 22, 2019, then also at the manga's first art exhibition held at Shibuya Marui in Tokyo from December 26 to January 13.
In addition to Junya Enoki (Jona Basta in Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative) as the protagonist Yuji Itadori, Yuma Uchida (Hayate Immelmann in Macross Delta) as Megumi Fushiguro, and Asami Seto (Raphtalia in The Rising of the Shield Hero) as Nobara Kugisaki, Yuichi Nakamura (Karamatsu Matsuno in Mr. Osomatsu) was newly announced as the voice of Satoru Gojo in the clip.
Yuichi Nakamura: "I voiced Gojo in the PV for the manga before, but I never thought I could play the character again as it is! I am very happy because it is something I never expected."
The TV anime's broadcast schedule and main staff are expected to be announced soon.
