The premiere of Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie, Japanese cinemas are flooded with audiences. The film is expected to be the second biggest after Demond Slayer: Mugen Train.
Premiering on December 24, 2021, this portrait of the long queue of viewers of the first Jujutsu Kaisen anime series was shared by a Twitter user, @TarizSolis.
Through his upload, it can be seen that cinemas in Japan, such as Toho Cinemas, are flooded with spectators who are queuing to get tickets to watch Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie.
In the upload, the account owner @TarizSolis shared an article about the situation in cinemas in Japan.
“Cinemas in Japan are also having fun because there are so many audiences. The only difference is that they don’t queue up to watch the Spider Man: No Way Home película completa, but Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie,”
Given the large number of viewers for this popular anime premiere, it is estimated that Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie will be the second largest after Demond Slayer: Mugen Train last year.
Demond Slayer: Mugen Train itself first became so popular in October 2020 that it beat the number of viewers of the Avengers film that aired almost simultaneously.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie: New Curse War Anime Leaks
Viz Media released the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 película completa manga in January, and describes the story that Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student who is suffering from serious childhood friend problems.
Rika has turned into a curse and will not leave her alone because Rika is not an ordinary curse.
The suffering of the curse is noticed by Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Jujutsu High School, a school where exorcists learn how to combat curses.
Gojo convinces Yuta to enlist, but can he learn in time enough to face the curse that haunts him?
The Jujutsu Kaisen television anime premiered in October 2020. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime outside of Asia while the anime is airing in Japan, and is also streaming dubs in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German.
Akutami launched the main manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March 2018.
Viz Media published the manga’s first three chapters in English simultaneously with Japanese as part of its Jump Start initiative.
When Viz later switched to the new Shonen Jump model in December 2018, the company began publishing new chapters of the manga digitally. Shueisha also publishes the manga on the MANGA Plus website.
Meanwhile, about 15,000 people watched the Gekijō-ban Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie anime film at its earliest public screening on 58 screens at midnight on Friday.
TOHO originally planned to screen the Gekijō-ban Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie anime film at midnight on only 28 screens in 14 theaters in Kyoto and Miyagi plus Tokyo, Osaka, Aichi, Fukuoka, and Hokkaido.
However, tickets for the Gekijō-ban Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie anime sold out on the first day of sale, so theaters ended up increasing the number of screens.
In particular, TOHO Cinemas Shinjuku Tokyo had originally planned for only two screens, but tickets sold out in a matter of minutes.
