From a successful manga, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 recounts the adventures of Yuta Okkutsu, a young boy who carries a terrible burden within him. He is indeed haunted by the ghost of his childhood friend, Rika, who died in cruel conditions. The problem is that the latter takes on the outlines of an extremely dangerous spirit that attacks anyone who attacks its host.

By landing in the cinema, the shonen (which is one of the most popular manga of recent years) increases its popularity even more.

To take full view, Japanese fans were also able to discover the feature film in IMAX format.
