After the release of the final episode of the Jujutsu Kaisen series on March 27, the producers together with studio MAPPA announced that they were working on a major project for a series adapted from Gege Akutami’s manga. The project is none other than the adaptation of the prequel Jujutsu Kaisen manga titled Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical School .
After a long wait, the production finally announced that this anime will be released at the end of this year with the title Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie. Being one of the most anticipated Japanese animated films, let’s take a look at five facts about Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie below!
Synopsis : Reviewing the story in chapter 0, Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie will be filled by several new characters who have not appeared in the anime series. The main character in this film is Yuta Okkotsu, a Jujutsu Vocational High School student who appeared before the Yuji Itadori era.
Unique, actually the story of Yuta and Yuji is almost the same. They are able to become containers of powerful spirits. However, different from Yuji who became the vessel of Sukuna the strongest demon in the past, Yuta became the vessel of his deceased childhood friend, Rika.
Rika herself is a curse that can be said to be as strong as Sukuna. When possessing Yuta, Rika becomes a very powerful and scary spirit, just like Sukuna. In fact, Rika’s presence in Yuta’s body became frightening news for many Jujutsu Magicians. Yuta can issue a tremendous power that is very possible to hurt humans.
In the midst of this fear, Satoru Gojo, who is a Jujutsu Magician, comes to invite Yuta to join the Jujutsu Vocational School with the intention of teaching him to control Rika’s power. Together with some of his new friends, Yuta studied and trained there. However, Yuta finally realized that the path he was taking was very difficult and scary.
The Jujutsu Kaisen anime series achieves unrelenting achievements and popularity : Even though it was released at the end of the year, the popularity of Jujutsu Kaisen seems to beat the anime that was first released in 2020.
