Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has finally hit theaters, and fans have been excited to see how this film ties itself to the series and gives more depth to an already rich story. We're going to dive into the implications of this movie and why 2023 can't come soon enough to see what this movie adds to the show.
If you're like me, you were excited to see that Jujutsu Kaisen was getting a film to enjoy and that it was going to tie directly to the show, making it canon, which not a lot of anime films tend to do.
Enter Yuta Okkotsu, a then-16-year-old who is haunted by the powerful curse of Rika, a childhood love who was killed six years prior before his very eyes and ended up being the curse that has protected him even if not by choice.
Throughout the movie, we see the relationship develop between these students as they battle against different curses and have the ultimate showdown with Suguru Geto.
There was one thing that I really didn't catch until watching it the second time that I was pretty surprised I missed in my first viewing: Suguru Geto doesn't have the stitching across his forehead as he does in the show — which immediately made me wonder why that was.
We also get to see a post-credit scene where we finally get an answer to where Yuta might have been during Season 1, as we see him having lunch in Kenya with Gojo's former foe, Miguel. Shortly after, we see them chumming it up; we see Satoru walk up, saying, "Long time no see."
It's been rumored that Season 2 will mainly focus on the Shibuya Incident Arc, one of the manga's wildest arcs. I haven't read any of it, but if the hype I've heard about is real, there might be another big battle involving multiple sorcerers similar to the movie, with even more at stake this time around.
