WHY IS JUJUTSU KAISEN’s ANIME SLIGHTLY BETTER THAN IT’s MANGA

This comparison is only for S1 of the anime and might contain SLIGHT SPOILERS.

Rarely, if ever, is an anime adaption better than it’s manga original as the creators of the manga usually focus on the story, while the creators of the anime focus on entertainment value.

1. Better Camera and Art Work : This one applies to many different anime adaptations of popular manga series, and it’s the fact that an anime can play around with the camera a lot more, especially if they’re using 3D models. MAPPA has absolutely killed it with their animation in this anime.

2. Detailed and Prettier Characters : Coming up next is by far the weirdest change, MAPPA “prettied” up some of the characters. Though, it doesn’t look bad. They look more detailed and kinda realistic in the anime as compared to their manga designs.

3. Visual Flares for Cursed Techniques : Communicating the properties of something supernatural is so much easier with sound, motion, and visuals than it is with pure line work. These visual effects enhanced the enjoyability of the anime and hence increased it’s level.

4. Better Combat Choreography and More Battle Moves : The combat scenes, for the most part, are so incredibly well composited and animated. When people are fighting hand to hand, it looks like martial arts, and when they use their curse techniques it gets a lot more supernatural. The dynamic camera, the extra moves, the added flair, it all works so well. MAPPA is a GOAT for this one.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Don’t get me wrong, Gege Akutami is a legend for this one. I’m not hating on any manga/mangaka. This list is made only because I liked MAPPA’s animation and the way they choreographed the fights making them more enjoyable. Obviously, when overall aspects are observed, manga surpasses the anime by a huge margin but still, we have to give props to MAPPA for giving their all for us.
