Jujutsu Kaisen promised fans they were in for a surprise today, and the anime delivered just as it said. Not long ago, the series stepped out with an update on its first movie, and the gift in question was a teaser trailer. So as you can guess, well - fans are freaking out big time over the clip.
You only have to check out the reactions below to see why fans are so excited. The trailer for Jujutsu Kaisen 0 may be short, but it packs in a lot of goodies. Not only does it give fans their first look at Yuta in action, but it shows off his powers along with Rika to sweeten the deal.
At this point, the fandom is going gaga over Yuta and his design in this movie. The character may not be well known to the anime fandom yet, but manga readers know him well. After all, Yuta has an interesting character arc in Jujutsu Kaisen, and his relationship with Yuji will be fun to see play out on screen.
For now, fans know little else about Jujutsu Kaisen 0, but they do know it will go live in Japan on December 24. The movie is expected to premiere globally at some point, and no stateside release has been announced. But if you need to catch up on the Jujutsu Kaisen anime, it can be found on Crunchyroll. And if you want to read the prequel manga that inspired this movie, you can read the synopsis for Jujutsu Kaisen 0 below:
"In a world where cursed spirits feed on unsuspecting humans, fragments of the legendary and feared demon Ryomen Sukuna were lost and scattered about. Should any demon consume Sukuna's body parts, the power they gain could destroy the world as we know it. Fortunately, there exists a mysterious school of Jujutsu Sorcerers who exist to protect the precarious existence of the living from the supernatural!
Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student who is suffering from a serious problem—his childhood friend Rika has turned into a curse and won't leave him alone. Since Rika is no ordinary curse, his plight is noticed by Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Jujutsu High, a school where fledgling exorcists learn how to combat curses. Gojo convinces Yuta to enroll, but can he learn enough in time to confront the curse that haunts him?"
