Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 17 surprised fans with the insane animation, but there were lots of unfinished scenes. Here’s everything we know about it.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 17 features the most intense fight in the series as Sukuna arrives just in time to defeat Mahoraga and save Megumi. The episode features a key hint about Sukuna’s plans with Megumi, the fight between two monsters, the destruction of Shibuya, Yuji’s breakdown, and a cliffhanger about Nanami.

So much happened in the mere 20 minutes of the episode, and things will only get worse from this point on. The episode even had cuts from Vincent Chansard, one of the One Piece animators who contributed to the Gear 5 episodes, Zoro vs. King, and several incredible episodes.

While fans have nothing but praise for the recent JJK episode, they have also noticed that a lot of scenes look unpolished and incomplete. As such, one of the animators has revealed the truth behind it.

One of the JJK animators shared that the episode was not finished, and only 30% of the initial vision was present on the screen. They also expressed their distress over the difficult work schedule, but the post was soon deleted. The incomplete episode is not a secret among the fandom, as many have come forward to share their thoughts on it.

One user’s comment reads: “According to what I’ve read so far, at least the plane sequence and the shrine drawings were incomplete. The more I read, the more I want a redo of the best episode I’ve seen so far in JJK.”

Another user says: “The episode was amazing but also objectively incomplete. One of the animators on the episode said they only gotta do like 30% of what they planned bc of the schedule.”

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2’s production meltdown isn’t a secret among fans, as they often criticize MAPPA for overworking its employees. Animators are requesting an episode delay, but the production team has rejected them.

The preview stills of the recent episode were also delayed by 4-5 hours, which goes to show that animators are working on the episodes till the last minute before the release time. The workload is only increasing, and several animators expressed their dissatisfaction on Twitter/X.

Despite the recurring controversies, MAPPA has yet to address the complaints about its alleged working conditions.
