Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie is an upcoming Winter 2022 film of the franchise. However, it acts as a prequel to the original story. The movie was announced in the 24th episode of the anime by the creators.
With the anime ending on a cliffhanger, and fans left restless for a Season 2, MAPPA has taken up the helm to fill in a few gaps in the story for the fans.
Jujutsu Kaisen is an atypical shonen anime revolving around curses and Itadori Yuuji, who happened to eat one such curse.
As a teenager with strong ideals, he maintains a positive outlook in his life, despite the world out to kill him, literally.
It all starts one day when Yuuji swallows an extremely cursed object: ex Jujutsu sorcerer, Sukuna’s finger, to save Megumi.
After involuntarily becoming Sukuna’s vessel, he embarks on a journey to find the rest of Sukuna’s fingers while enjoying his days at Jujutsu High School.
Season 1 ended with Getou brewing a new plan just for Gojo. But is this how it all ends?
To keep the passion for Jujutsu Kaisen burning, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 manga would be adapted into a movie. Although the story won’t be about Yuuji, Megumi, and Nobara; a new character on par with Gojo would be introduced.
Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the modern big-league anime! If you love all things Shonen, be sure not to miss out on JJK!
