In 2020 - 2021, we witnessed an amazing anime release and give a spectacle that will forever set the bar higher for future releases of anime to come. Jujutsu Kaisen took the world by storm and has forever changed the hearts and minds of fans across the globe. Whilst waiting for the anime's second season to be released, MAPPA Studios has released a trailer for the movie releasing Early 2022 for Western Audiences.
We can finally get a picture of what the movie is going to be about because of the trailers that have been released. Let's start off with an analysis of the trailers for Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
From what we know, the movie is supposed to be set before the anime, as a prequel which will directly link to the second season of the anime. This has been done before by Demon Slayer with the Mugen Train movie that released earlier this year.
At the start of the trailer, we hear a familiar voice talking about 24th December and the 'Night Parade of Hundred Demons'. This voice is Getou Suguru, the antagonist for the show in the anime as well as this movie. In the anime, we didn't see him much as he was very much working behind the scenes alongside his comrades, Hinami, Jougo and Mahito. It seems that we are exploring the previous incident that was mentioned in the anime where he murdered over a hundred civilians in one night.
We then hear Gojo's voice saying an unfamiliar name, Okkotsu Yuta. This character has been very briefly mentioned in the anime as a student in the Tokyo Jujutsu High School with the potential to rival Gojo Satoru himself...
This sets the scene for a very exciting movie as we get to see first hand what Gojo was referring to in the anime.
We can suspect that the anime involves the scouting and student-teacher relationship forming between Okkotsu and Gojo whilst Getou plans his evil scheme for the Night of a Hundred Demons. These three characters will play pivotal roles in the movie and we can expect to see a ton of action from the two 'new' characters.
In another trailer released, we hear the voice of Okkotsu Yuta showing off his character whilst stating that he would save a girl called 'Rika'. Since we have no information about the girl, let's take a look at Okkotsu himself. As a boy dedicated with a mission, he seems to look the opposite of determined and strong. However, in anime, we know that the opposite is usually the case for these types of characters. In the trailer, we see him carry a sword and use a type of smoke which could be his curse technique.
How he uses this sword and smoke, we shall see in the movie!
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is releasing 24th December 2021 in Japan and a most likely release to Europe and American audiences Early 2022.
