What Is the Release Date of Jujutsu Kaisen 0?
The series is slated to roll out in theatres on March 18, 2022.
What Is the Plot of Jujutsu Kaisen 0?
JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 revolves around Yuta Okkotsu who is a nervous high school student, who gets admission to the mysterious Tokyo Jujutsu High School under the instruction of Satoru Gojo following being terrified from the curse of his childhood friend.
The film is adapted from the manga series of the same name published by JUMP COMICS / Shueisha, a prequel to the super-hit supernatural adventure series from Gege Akutami. Here’s the official synopsis:
“When they were children, Rika Orimoto (dubbed by Kana Hanazawa) was killed in a traffic accident right before the eyes of Yuta Okkotsu (Megumi Ogata), the close friend with whom she’d made a pact to marry as adults.
Rika became an apparition, and Yuta longed for his death after suffering under her curse, but the greatest Jujutsu sorcerer, Satoru Gojo (Yuichi Nakamure), welcomed him into Jujutsu High.
There, Yuta meets classmates Maki Zen’in (Mikako Komatsu), Toge Inumaki (Koki Uchiyama), and Panda (Tomokazu Seki), and finally finds his determination to break Rika-chan’s curse.”
“Meanwhile, the vile curse user Suguru Geto (Takahiro Sakurai), who was expelled from the school for massacring ordinary people, appears before Yuta and the others and promises to carry out “the Night Parade of a Hundred Demons” on December 24.
While Geto advocates for creating a paradise for only jujutsu sorcerers, he unleashes a thousand curses upon Shinjuku and Kyoto to exterminate all non-sorcerers. Will Yuta be able to stop Geto in the end? And will he finally break Rika’s curse…?”
In the United States, the anime series is published by VIZ Media. The series was announced Anime of the Year by the Crunchyroll Anime Awards last year.
