MAPPA-animated adaptation is set to premiere in Japan in October 2020
The official website for the forthcoming TV anime adaptation of Gege Akutami's dark fantasy manga Jujutsu Kaisen has announced its OP and ED theme song performers. The OP song "Kaikai Kitan" is sung by singer-songwriter Eve, while the ED song "LOST IN PARADISE feat. AKLO" is performed by multinational hip-hop funk band ALI (Alien Liberty International).
The MAPPA-animated adaptation is set to premiere in Japan in October 2020. Park Sunghoo (THE GOD OF HIGH SCHOOL) is attached to direct, alongside series composition writer Hiroshi Seko (DECA-DENCE) and character designer Tadashi Hiramatsu (Yuri!!! on ICE).
Message from Eve:
"I remember how excited I was when I heard that the series I originally loved to read was going to be made into an anime, and I was deeply moved by the fact that I would be singing the opening theme for it. There were many thought-provoking moments in the life and struggles of Itadori, who was honest with himself. I made this song while thinking about how I could accompany this energetic story. I'm looking forward to seeing the anime on TV."
Message from ALI:
"In the 90s, I picked up Weekly Shonen Jump because I wanted to grow up as much as possible. I skipped school to read it all the time. I realized that more than 20 years have passed since then. My favorite series, Jujutsu Kaisen, which depicts Shibuya, the town where I grew up and the band ALI was born, in the craziest way. A joy to be able to work on the ED song along with the best characters. I wrote this song with my gratitude to Jump for bringing me up through the years. I hope you will enjoy this song."
