Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has finally been released. The long-awaited film can be seen in a number of cinemas. The prequel to the Jujutsu Kaisen series was released in Japan at the end of last year. For 105 minutes or 1 hour 45 minutes, the fans were treated to the exciting action of the great Jujutsu magicians. Satoru Gojo is definitely one of the stars in this film.
Fans were also introduced to a number of new faces in this film which had an impact on the continuation of the anime. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 features the main character named Yuta Okkotsu. He must try to control the evil cursed spirit that is overprotective of him. With Satoru’s help, he was slowly able to do it. Here are some interesting facts about Jujutsu Kaisen 0:
- Black Lightning
Dark Lightning is part of the strongest jutsu a Jujutsu mage can unleash and is difficult to perform. Even Satoru Gojo couldn’t let it go on his own. In the anime, Nanami claims that her record is four consecutive Dark Lightnings. The new record was equaled by Yuji Itadori against Hanami.
- Featuring the 2nd and 3rd graders of Jujutsu High School
Apart from Satoru, Suguru, and Nanami, there are many other familiar faces from anime in this film. They were mainly from 2nd and 3rd grade students of Tokyo Jujutsu High School. Grade 2 students will get a decent spotlight. They are Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki, and Panda. In this film, they are still in grade 1 with Yuta Okkotsu. Together, they fight and try to stop Suguru and his genocidal plans. In this film will also appear a number of grade 2 students. One of the famous is Aoi Todo. In the anime, he is said to have done something brutal to the curse in Kyoto.
- Suguru Geto is the main antagonist
Suguru Geto used to be a Jujutsu Mage and a classmate of Satoru Gojo. They were also close in age to Satoru two years older. Their relationship used to be a rivalry between friends, while still acting on behalf of the school. However, Suguru becomes evil as a result of his negative experiences with non-magicals and synopsis. Gradually, he got closer to bluffing. He was later expelled from school and declared the worst curse user. He hates people who are not magicians which causes him to work with curses in anime. He survived Satoru and Yuta’s attack in Jujutsu Kaisen 0 because in the anime he was still alive.
- Satoru Gojo returns to guide the protégé
Satoru Gojo is the one who brought Yuta Okkotsu to Jujutsu High School. Satoru has a habit of selecting people who have the potential to become Jujutsu magicians and educating them to become strong with his guidance. Even if he had to break the traditions and school rules. Yuta is Satoru’s first choice. At first, Yuta wanted to go as far as possible after Rika started throwing a tantrum and endangering innocent people. But. Satoru makes an offer to let Yuta enter the school. This helps Yuta control Rika and even arm his evil spirit. This keeps everyone safe from both of them. The story is similar to Yuji Itadori and Sukuna.
- Featuring Yuta Okkotsu as the protagonist
The best and most powerful and feared magician in this film is Yuta Okkotsu. Again, he was referenced in the anime. In fact, a number of magicians at Jujutsu High School were shocked to learn when Satoru Gojo chose Yuji Itadori as Yuta’s replacement.
Yuta has black hair, a troubled teenager who looks like Megumi Fushiguro in the anime. This film tells the story and his struggle to control the evil spirit of his childhood friend named Rika who is overprotective. Rika continued to haunt him until several years after he died. At first glance, Yuta and Yuji’s situation was no different. Both of them host very strong curses.
- Adapting the Cursed Child arc in the manga
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is a direct adaptation of the Cursed Child arc from the Jujutsu Kaisen manga. It is also a flashback story arc or prequel series that tells the story of one of the best and most talented wizards. This arc is set before the events of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga and anime occur. The creator of Jujutsu Kaisen, Gege Akutami, chose to categorize this arc as Chapter 0. This chapter has 4 chapters. But, they all show up as 0-1 for the first one and so on. This chapter describes the incident in Kyoto which is constantly referenced in the anime. The incident involved a number of Jujutsu magicians in an epic battle.
- Prequel movie
For those who are still confused about where Jujutsu Kaisen 0 lies in the adaptation narrative, this is in the not too distant past. The film takes place about a year before the start of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga and anime. So, Satoru Gojo was a year younger here, which wasn’t too different compared to his level and appearance in the anime. Meanwhile, a number of new faces appear here. The events that took place a year before in the anime were far more widespread and gruesome. In fact, it’s a full-blown urban war, which catches the attention of several freelancers and old friends.
