Synopsis Jujutsu Kaisen 0
This anime film tells of Yuta Okkotsu who has a childhood friend named Rika Orimoto who turns into a curse. Rika is no ordinary Curse, her suffering is noticed by Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Jujutsu High, a school where exorcists learn how to fight Curses.
Gojo convinces Yuta to enlist, but can he learn in time enough to face the Curse that haunts him?
The voice actor or voice actor Yuta Okkotsu is filled with Megumi Ogata. Meanwhile, Rika Orimoto’s voice actor is Kan Hanazawa.
Several old and new characters will be introduced in the film. Anyone?
Inumaki is a character that is quite popular in the Jujutsu Kaisen series. In the main series, Inumaki is Yuji Itadori’s senior at the Jujutsu Vocational School. Inumaki himself has a formidable ability where whatever he says to his enemy will surely happen. This is the reason why Inumaki is often shown as someone who raves or speaks incoherently, this is to protect his strength from others. note: Spider-Man: No Way Home movie
In Jujutsu Kaisen 0, Inumaki is actually a classmate of Yuta Okkotsu, the main protagonist of the story. Before Yuta then decided to go on a mission, Inumaki was a close friend of Yuta Okkotsu. In fact, at first it was told that Inumaki was not very close to Yuta due to his quiet attitude.
Maki Zenin is one of the interesting characters in the Jujutsu Kaisen series. He is a Jujutsu magician who has the Heavenly Restriction technique. Maki Zenin doesn’t have curse energy like the others, which means she can’t see or fight cursed spirits like other magicians. He needed the help of a tool to be able to do this. note: Matrix 4 Resurrections streaming
Like Inumaki, Maki Zenin is also a classmate of Yuta Okkotsu in the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 story before Yuta leaves on a mission. What’s interesting is that Yuta and Maki are considered as “lovers” because many people see their relationship as close. Yuta and Maki often train together and do things together.
Panda is one proof of the uniqueness of the Jujutsu Kaisen series. Even though he has an animal form, Panda acts like a human. And the epic thing is that he is also a Jujutsu magician. Even though his appearance is that of a panda, he has extraordinary abilities and Panda is also a good character. note: Matrix 4 movie
Panda is a classmate of Yuta Okkotsu, along with Maki and Inumaki. Panda is a close friend of Yuta, although Panda himself does not have the same attitude as normal humans. Panda learns about the meaning of friendship from his relationship with Yuta Okkotsu. This is one of the interesting things to look forward to in the film.
There is no magician in the world of Jujutsu Kaisen who has the most powerful power than the figure of Gojo Satoru. With the confidence he has, Gojo often manages to silence those who doubt his abilities. Gojo himself is a teacher of Yuta Okktsu and the characters above, before he later became a teacher for Yuji Itadori.
Gojo himself is a person who directly recruits Yuta to be able to join the Tokyo Jujutsu Vocational School, as he did with Yuji Itadori in the main series. Even though Gojo was the strongest mage, he saw great potential in Yuta. Gojo even believed that one day Yuta would be able to surpass him as a great Jujutsu wizard.
For geeks who follow the main series, of course you already know who Suguru Geto is. He is the antagonist behind various dire situations in the story. Suguru Geto is also the figure responsible for the chaos that occurred in the Shibuya Accident arc. He was the one who released many cursed spirits and made Gojo trapped in an endless dimension. note: Spider-Man: No Way Home streaming
It turns out, what Geto has done has been happening for a long time. In the story of Jujutsu Kaisen 0, he is the one who often creates chaos and he is also the one who often deals with Yuta. In fact, the event that threatened the safety of Yuta’s comrade, Rika Orimoto, was also caused by Geto. Of course it will be very interesting to see Yuta Okkotsu’s fight with the above characters against Suguru Geto.
