Jujustsu Kaisen 0 follows Yuta Okkotsu, a nervous high school student, who enrolls in the mysterious Tokyo Jujutsu High School under the guidance of Satoru Gojo after being haunted by the curse of his childhood friend Rika Orimoto, who died in a car accident when they were children. There Yuta meets his classmates, Maki Zen’in, Toge Inumaki, and Panda, and finally finds his own determination. Meanwhile, the vile curse user, Suguru Geto, who was expelled from the school for massacring ordinary people, appears before Yuta and the others. He unleashes a thousand curses upon Shinjuku and Kyoto to exterminate all non-sorcerers. Will Yuta be able to stop him and be free from Rika’s curse?
I have waited too long for this and I’m SO excited! (YAY GOJO!) MAPPA’s art style is truly a marvel and I’m very excited to finally see this on the big screen. I, along with millions of others, anticipate an action-packed movie with stunning visuals that won’t disappoint, and an equally powerful soundtrack to bring it all together. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 releases in North American theaters on March 18th, 2022.
