Japanese portal mojitsu he published an article noting that it was a special broadcast jujutsu kaisen, held on January 10 on SMI in Japan, was a complete failure not because of the animated content broadcast, but because of the structure given to the program, including interviews with artists “series fans”Interrupted the broadcast to comment on it.
«The “successor hype of Kimetsu no Yaiba” has been dubbed “Jujutsu Kaisen” and has an unprecedented impact. Taking advantage of this popularity, a special program of the franchise was broadcast on SMI television on January 10, but the results were disastrous. This franchise is an action story, derived from a manga published in the magazine Weekly Shonen Jump, which depicts the struggles of grief to perpetuate the Curses threat, with Yuuji Itadori on stage.».
«This special program included the twenty – second and twenty – fourth episodes of the original Anime adaptation, and was dubbed “The Origin of Obedience Arc – Special Program”. In addition, it included interviews with “Jujutsu Kaisen” confirmed fans, some publicity videos of “Jujutsu Kaisen 0”, currently projected in theaters, and a selection of episodes of the “Juju-Sanpo” shorts series. Each of the above gave it a “Special Program” character and not just a “Repeat”.».
«The show aired in “Prime Time”, the highest rated TV time slot in the Japanese market, which showed just how popular the franchise is today, but the reviews were disastrous. Comments on networks can be read: “The comedians' comments, interviews and extras were a nest of vipers“,“No, why bother with the main story with a series of interviews with celebrities?“,“I watched it from the middle of the program, so I did not know how the time was distributed and how the structure of the program was, and I was very surprised to see that “Juju-Sanpo” was being already broadcast with 30 minutes to go, so what?“; “No one cares about celebrities who don't even know the story. Ray!“; Y “I wish they hadn’t done the part where they let celebrities comment on the show. None of them seem to like the series very much“».
«Apparently the problem was not in the subject of the main animation, but in the planning and other structure. “The ratings of this special program were scarce. The Kanto District averaged 5.1 percent, which is a rock bottom number given that this was prime time. The fifth episode of “Kimetsu no Yaiba 2nd Season,” aired on January 2 on Fuji TV at midnight, scored 7.7 percent. There is still time before “Jujutsu Kaisen” can compete at the same levela source said».
