Anime fans are only days away from the arrival of Yuta Okkotsu’s prequel story in Jujustu Kaisen 0 in theaters across North America, and fans can take the opportunity to purchase tickets for the big debut starting now. Corn Jujutsu Kaisen television series does not return until next year with its second season, this new film from Studio MAPPA takes the opportunity to dive into the universe of Jujutsu Tech before Yuji Itadori ingested the fingers of the king of curses, Sukuna, taking advantage to tell a far more tragic story for viewers.
Fandango currently has tickets available for the prequel film opening on March 18, although some theaters are taking the opportunity to play the anime film the day before its official March 17 release date, allowing fans to experience Yuta’s story a little earlier. .
In addition to the North American release, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will also be released in France, Belgium, and Luxembourg on March 16, with a scheduled release in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland set to debut on March 29 later this month.
If you don’t know the story of Jujutsu Kaisen 0the official description of the prequel from Crunchyroll reads:
“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.”
Ironically enough, the story of this prequel film was actually printed in the pages of the manga before the official introduction of Jujutsu Kaisenwith creator Gege Akutami originally featuring Yuta as the story’s hero with a different name in Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College arrived in 2017.
