Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie plot
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie will be based on the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 manga. It will not follow the future aspects of the series and instead, the plot will unravel the story of Yuta Okkotsu, who will be the main antagonist of the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie.
In the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 manga, the story starts one year before the main story, and it highlights the life of Yuta Okkotsu, the possessor of Special Grade Curse Spirit, Rika.
After finding out about his new life, Yuta joins Jujutsu Tech, where to learns how to control his new powers, and his situation is the same as the Itadori, however, inside the college, he meets Inumaki, Panda, and the rest of the crew.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie big spoiler alert
Please note if you pass this sentence there is a higher chance of some of the main things getting spoiled so it is better to leave the article as it or read some more anime from here. But, if you want to know more about Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie, read along.
In a nutshell, fans can expect a fight between Itadori and Yuta. The movie revolves around Yuta and his origins, so it’s very important to know what we are dealing with.
The mystery behind Yuta has been heavily guarded by MAPPA and Gege Akutami, and he was absent from the manga as well as from the anime adaptation in season 1.
At the time of writing this, the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is on the Itadori’s Extermination Arc, and both Yuta and Yuji fight to the death while eventually helping each other in the story. While it is not clear why Yuta wants to help Itaori, it’s safe to say that he doesn’t Yuji to suffer the same fate.
Fans were excited to see Jujutsu Kaisen 0 teaser, and the anime keeps getting better every day. I am looking forward to the new Jujutsu Kaisen movie, releasing in the winter of 2021, and I am sure MAPPA will do justice to the animation part while Gege Akutami takes care of the storytelling part of the movie. So that’s all folks, please do let me know what do you think of the new movie, and on a scale of 1-10, where do you rank Jujutsu Kaisen 0 teaser.
