As the second cour of Jujutsu Kaisen has begun, the Kyoto Goodwill Event has begun too. Whenever there is a friendly battle event in any Anime series, things always become interesting. And, we saw how the Kyoto High School Principal was planning to finish off Itadori taking this event as an example. The competition between the two schools are at full swing. For now, no one has won or lost. But, things are going to change after Episode 16. With this, let’s look into Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 17 Release Date, Time and Discussion.
Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 17 will Release on Friday, 5 February at 8:25(PDT). The preview of Episode 17 shows the next battle between the groups. It’s Nobara’s time to shine and it will be really interesting to see whether she can defeat her seniors.
Panda Vs Mechamaru
As the preview of Episode 17 was shown in the end of Episode 16, most of the Episode covered the intense battle between Mechamaru and Panda.
From the beginning of his introduction, we knew it that Panda was not just a lovely Sorcerer, and this Episode revealed that.
The Episodes begins with Todo still teaching Itadori different techniques. Hence, the scene switches to Panda and Nobara.
What’s interesting about the battle between Panda and Mechamaru is not only their techniques, but their individual pasts.
While showing Panda’s past, it was revealed that he is not a mere Animal, but a highly sophisticated Cursed Doll. On the other hand, it is revealed that Mechamaru is just a robot controlled by a person who is physically handicapped.
They both have their own piece of struggle and their own reason to question their existence.
But, ultimately Panda reveals his hidden technique, “Gorilla.” And, rest is history.
Not A Panda
What’s surprising about Panda is that he contains both his Brother and Sister within himself. When Mechamaru attacked Panda in the beginning, his portion of the body that contained the Sister, collapsed.
Hence, he was forced to reveal his Brother energy which resulted in Gorilla.
This may be extremely confusing to read. For better explanation you should surely watch the Anime.
