The shonen genre has another header manganime. Jujutsu Kaisen has been developed throughout the manga and the 24 episodes that make up the animated series (available on Crunchyroll), but the story will continue to put the puzzle pieces together thanks to the new movie, which will be released next December 24 in Japan. This is the prequel Jujutsu Kaisen 0, a film based on the homonymous manga that was published in Jump magazine. Now, a new trailer has just been shown, which you can see on these lines.
Gege Akutami’s work is moving to the big screen, although Seon-Hu Park, director of Jujutsu Kaisen, has stated that 0’s plot was planned as part of the main series. “When I sat in the director’s chair, I originally wanted to start the television anime with this magnetic story,” which he describes as “a fascinating beginning.” However, it has not specified the reasons why it ultimately decided not to do so.
An evil spirit who turns out to be a childhood friend
The story focuses on the figure of Yuta Okkotsu, a young high school student who has been immersed in a strange situation. His childhood friend annoys him all the time, but not in the way you might think. It has turned into an evil spirit that torments him. That is why he draws the attention of Satoru Gojo, a teacher at the Jujutsu High exorcist school. Yuta joins the academy with the idea of getting rid of the spirit that haunts him.
In its prequel condition, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 establishes some of the plots that later follow one another in the next work. Although the film will be released at the end of the year in Japan, it is still no date has been announced for the international market. We will have to wait to discover everything that he has in store for us.
