Jujutsu Kaisen as an anime series has mostly followed Yuji Itadori as he struggles with the demonic curse king residing in his own body, but his story is far from the only tragic scenario that played out in the Shonen franchise. Now, if you might have missed the prequel film that focused on the characters that came before Yuji and his friends, you can now stream Jujutsu Kaisen 0 on Crunchyroll as Yuta Okkotsu's story unfolds.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 was based on the initial offering created by Gege Akutami in "Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School", which came out prior to Jujutsu Kaisen hitting the scene in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump. Arriving in 2017, the manga's story was translated into the film, though the Shonen movie added some additional scenes to help in padding out the story of Yuta and his classmates that fought against Suguru Geto and his dream of eradicating all those who couldn't use cursed energy.
You can check out Jujutsu Kaisen 0 with a Crunchyroll membership here, with Studio MAPPA leaving everything on the table when it comes to telling the tragic tale of the high schooler that would come before Yuji Itadori.
For the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen, expect the events of 0 to have an effect on the proceedings in some unique ways as Yuta Okkotsu's story definitely isn't done when it comes to the Shonen series. In a recent promotional image, MAPPA revealed that the season will be diving into the past of teacher Satoru Gojo, in his younger days when he considered Geto a friend. Needless to say, their friendship doesn't exactly end on a great note considering the events of the prequel film.
The official description for this prequel film following Yuta Okkotsu reads as such from Crunchyroll:
"Yuta Okkotsu, a nervous high school student, who enrolls in the mysterious Tokyo Jujutsu High School under the guidance of Satoru Gojo after being haunted Draft for review by the curse of his childhood friend."
