Jujutsu Kaison is actually a prequel to the anime. Gege Akutami had written four chapters of it before Shueisha decided to make it a longer series. This sequence was then introduced into the manga as we know it today. The facts happened a year before the arrival of Yuji Itadori at the school of exorcism. Along with introducing a new protagonist Yuta Okkotsu, the film sheds light on some of the mysteries present in Season 1 of the anime. For example, we see that in the film, the autonomy of the leaders of the circle of exorcists is more detailed.

Additionally, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 seems to follow the same storytelling as Demon Slayer. Remember that in Demon Slayer: The Infinity Train, the producers had made a whole arc that followed the events of season 1.

A few touches of humor from Gojo Satoru and Panda help to soften the pace of the film, thus avoiding falling into endless action scenes.

According to figures from Crunchyroll, in France, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 sold over 113,000 tickets between previews and the first day of screening in France, and took the number one spot at the box office the same day. operating.
