‘Jujutsu Kaisen 0’ has already become a incredible phenomenon worldwide, and that has not yet been released in a good handful of territories. It is one of the highest grossing anime movies in history and it’s being measured with hits like the Ghibli classics,’Your Name‘ Y ‘Kimetsu no Yaiba: Infinity Train‘… and its lead voice actress is in disbelief at the tremendous reception.
Five months in theaters in Japan
Originally Gege Akutami public ‘Jujutsu Kaisen 0‘ as a self-contained story that he later retroactively included into the canon of his ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ manga. The anime film is posed as a sort of prequel to the main seriesand will show us more of the past of some characters that we have already been able to meet in the anime and also introduces us to a new protagonist.
Megumi Ogata it is a legendary voice actress known for dubbing Shinji Ikari in ‘Neon Genesis Evangelion‘ or Haruka Teno in ‘sailor Moon‘ and who has now lent his voice to yuta okkotsuthe protagonist of ‘Jujutsu Kaisen 0‘.
The success of the anime film has caught her somewhat off guard, and after has been kept 137 days in theaters in Japanthe voice actress is very surprised and grateful that so many people have come to see her on the big screen.

“It’s already been five months since the ‘Jujutsu Kaisen 0’ movie premiered, but I’m very surprised that so many people still go to see it in theaters,” said the voice actress. “I’m so full of gratitude that I can’t put it into words. Movies are only in theaters for a very limited time, I hope I can see everyone again as Yuta Okkutsu one day.”
