Jujutsu Kaisen Gets Official Universal Studios Popcorn Bucket

Gojo remains not only the premiere teacher presiding over Jujutsu Tech, but also remains the most popular character in the shonen series, Jujutsu Kaisen. Should you be lucky enough to make the trip to Universal Studios Japan, you can pick up a unique popcorn holder that shows off Gojo and his Domain Expansion as the amusement park celebrates the shonen series via new attractions that will feature Yuji Itadori, his allies, and the countless supernatural threats that they face.

The attraction focusing on Yuji Itadori and his supernatural friends will arrive this Friday, September 16th in Japan, creating a themed live-action show, ride, and plenty of merchandise to hold over fans of the Shonen franchise that sprang from the mind of creator Gege Akutami. The popcorn bucket in question features Gojo Satoru, the far and away most popular character of the series that routinely sports a blindfold and has proved himself to be one of the most powerful fighters in the franchise. 

Twitter User King_Jin_Woo took the opportunity to share the impressive Jujutsu Kaisen Popcorn bucket, seeing Gojo enacting his "domain expansion", Unlimited Void, which is an impressive attack that the cursed energy teacher rarely relies on when it comes to fighting opponents:

Universal Studio Japan's official description of the Jujutsu Kaisen-themed attractions read as such:

"Immerse yourself in the world of the mega-hit anime series! Team up with Itadori and his friends for a fierce battle with a Cursed Spirit! The action unfolds right before your eyes with a level of realism possible only at Universal Studios Japan."

Jujutsu Kaisen made waves with the release of its first prequel movie, becoming one of the most popular anime movies of all time despite the series only releasing in the past few years via its manga and anime adaptation. With MAPPA set to return to animating duties for the second season in 2023, expect some major moments to take place on the small screen. The Shonen franchise hasn't confirmed if a new movie is in the works, though it would certainly be another hit based on the fan following that the story of Yuji Itadori and Yuta Okkotsu has gained over its short history.
