Funkoween 2022 is underway at Funko, the brand behind the iconic line of Pop!

And the latest additions are the sorcerers and curses of Gege Akutami’s dark fantasy manga, Jujutsu Kaisen.

First-year students at Jujutsu High Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara are joined by their stylish teacher Gojo. Alongside the heroes are cursed spirits Sukuna and Mahito, series antagonists.

Akutami began serializing Jujutsu Kaisen in Weekly Shōnen Jump in 2018. The series, distributed in English by Viz Media and published on the Shonen Jump app, became the best-selling manga in the world in 2021. Meanwhile, its critically lauded anime adaptation would break box office records when the prequel film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 released internationally earlier this year.
A second season of the series’ anime adaptation is in production and expected to release in 2023. Jujutsu Kaisen is streaming on Crunchyroll.
