Shortly after becoming the 22nd highest grossing anime film in Japan, JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 will finally get its international release in about a week on March 18, and tickets are currently available for sale. It is a prequel focusing on Yuta and Rika, and it covers Volume 0 of the manga, which VIZ describes as:
Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student who is suffering from a serious problem. His childhood friend Rika has turned into a Curse and won’t leave him alone. Since Rika is no ordinary Curse, his plight is noticed by Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Jujutsu High, a school where fledgling exorcists learn how to combat Curses. Gojo convinces Yuta to enroll, but can he learn enough in time to confront the Curse that haunts him?
