New York Comic Con 2023 is gearing up to be an epic event for Jujutsu Kaisen enthusiasts, and Loungefly has just revealed a ton of new merchandise for the event.
Leading the pack is the exquisite off-white mini backpack, featuring the character Ryomen Sukuna. Carrying a price tag of $80, the item will be up for grabs at the Loungefly NYCC booth (Booth #1000) and simultaneously released on loungefly.com come October 12, starting at 9:00 AM PT.
Additionally, Loungefly is also teaming up with the streaming giant Crunchyroll, to bring the fans a JUJUTSU KAISEN 5 pack pin set, with a modest MSRP of $30. This enchanting set will be available at Loungefly’s NYCC booth. Each of the five pins pays homage to the beloved characters — the Rookie Jujutsu Sorcerers Yuji Itadori, Nobara Kugisaki and Megumi Fushiguro, the Cursed Spirit Ryomen Sukuna, and the sorcery teacher Satoru Gojo.
The collaboration between Loungefly and Jujutsu Kaisen goes back to earlier this year when the Funko-owned brand released mini bags which displayed the moment when Yuji Itadori swallowed one of Ryomen Sukuna‘s fingers. While Itadori takes the spotlight as Jujutsu Kaisen’s main protagonist, the merchandise scene tells a different story, as the character is usually overshadowed by the charm of fellow central character, Satoru Gojo. Thanks to his suave personality, Gojo has emerged as a fan favorite, inspiring a large amount of the franchise’s products.
Based on Gege Akutami‘s best-selling manga series of the same name, Jujutsu Kaisen made its debut in 2020 from the animation studio, MAPPA, and is currently in its second season. The series has gained widespread popularity and a dedicated fan following. From life-size cardboard cut-outs to an array of stickers and apparel, the franchise is also blooming with products featuring Gojo and fellow characters. In fact, Jujutsu Kaisen merchandise is making a significant entrance into mainstream retail outlets, granting fans many more things to add to their collections. As the countdown to New York Comic Con ticks on, fans can gear up to immerse themselves in Jujutsu Kaisen treasures.
