Meanwhile, the JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 Movie 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?
You can also congratulate Yuta Okkotsu on his 2022 birthday with a special illustration of your own or some images by using the hashtag 乙骨憂太誕生祭2022.
The Jujutsu Kaisen manga began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in March 2018, and it has 18 volumes as of December 25, 2021. While we wait for the movie’s international release date, you can read the manga on MANGA Plus or VIZ.
