The time has finally come for anime fans in North America to watch the prequel story of Jujutsu Kaisen, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, with the story of Yuta Okkotsu delving into territory that existed before Yuji Itadori was the main character of the chilling Shonen series. With the prequel film hitting theaters in Japan last year and becoming one of the greatest anime films of all time, Western fans are eagerly waiting to see Studio MAPPA’s latest work finally arrive in the United States. .
Currently the only way you can watch Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is heading to theaters, with Yuta’s tragic origin only shown on the big screen as it is. Currently, Crunchyroll has yet to announce when the film will hit the internet, though we imagine the wait won’t be too long before the prequel hits the streaming service’s library.
Jujutsu Kaisen The official Twitter account has shared the webpages needed to purchase tickets for the prequel film which can only be seen in theaters at the moment, also sharing images from the hard-hitting Shonen film which brings back some classic characters created by Gege Akutami alongside Several new heroes and villains to boot:

If you don’t know the story of Jujutsu Kaisen 0Crunchyroll has posted an official description to give you an idea of what Jujutsu Tech was doing before Yuji Itadori cut down the cursed fingers of Sukuna, King of Curses:
“When they were children, Rika Orimoto was killed in a traffic accident in front of her close friend, Yuta Okkotsu. ‘It is a promise. When we both grow up, we’ll get married.’ Rika became an apparition, and Yuta yearned for his own death after suffering under his curse, but Jujutsu’s greatest wizard, Satoru Gojo, welcomed him to Jujutsu High. There, Yuta meets his classmates, Maki Zen’in, Toge Inumaki, and Panda, and finally finds his own resolve. “I want the confidence to say it’s good that I’m alive!” “While I’m at Jujutsu High, I’ll break Rika-chan’s curse.”
