In general, anime films tend to be distributed in our country in a few theaters and for a very limited time. However, despite these drawbacks, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is currently the third highest grossing filmbeing only surpassed by the blockbusters Top Gun: Maverick Y Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

It is curious that a franchise so little known among the general public is obtaining such good results at the box office, especially having the sequel to Top Gun since that very day. What is the secret for Jujutsu Kaisen 0 to succeed in this way in Spain?

One of the reasons for its success is quite evident: there are many Spanish fans who are familiar with the Jujutsu Kaisen manganime and were waiting for the arrival of the film. It is because of that, as it happened in his day with Guardians of the night: Infinite trainthe movie Jujustu Kaisen 0 is sweeping.

For some time now they have been released in Spanish cinemas with increasing notoriety, so they no longer go as unnoticed as before. We must also take into account the good advertising campaign that Crunchyroll and Sony Pictures have carried outwhich has left (almost) no one indifferent.

On the other hand, as we count in our jujutsu kaisen review 0, the movie explains very well all the lore of the manganime in such a way that those who come new will find out everything quite well even if they have not seen the series or read the manga. Not all prequels can say the same.

And of course, One of the main sources of its success is both the word of mouth of its public and the good evaluation given by the specialized press..

Although it is true that we always say that the best evaluation is the one that one makes as a spectator based on his or her tastes, it is true that many times it is inevitable to feel interest in a film if a good part of the critics put it through the roof. And of course with Jujutsu Kaisen 0 it is not for less.

The film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is available in cinemas in Spain from May 27, 2022. We leave you here our interview with Jaime Pérez de Sevilla, dubbing actor who plays Yuta Okkotsu in Jujutsu Kaisen 0 and that he told us several interesting things about the process of dubbing the film.
