Cover of Jujutsu Kaisen 0, the link between film and anime explained

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 - The Movie is more than just a prequel of the lucky anime of the Map studio. Of course, its temporal location places it little first the events narrated in the animated series. In fact, in the film we find the protagonist Yuta Okkutsu and his three classmates Maki Zen'in, Toge Inumaki and Panda in the first year of the Tokyo Institute of Occult Arts. In the series, on the other hand, Yuta is only mentioned and is generically "on a mission", while the three companions are already attending the second year. The protagonist of the anime Yuji Itadori does not appear in this film: he is still too small. Only later will he enter the Institute

The story of this preface of history does not begin as such. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 in fact was born before the anime and of the same manga by Gege Akutami, published with great success since 2017 in Shueisha's Jump Giga magazine. We could define it a dress rehearsal crowned with a success and then fished out to make a film.


Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student suffering from a serious problem: his childhood friend Rika has turned into a curse and won't leave him alone. ... Open tab

In a sense, the huge success of the film at the Japanese box office - currently the 14th most watched film in history in Japan - is a nice revenge for the protagonist of the film: Yuta Okkutsu. In fact, Yuta had been discarded in favor of Yuji Itadori by the publisher Shueisha, before the beginning of the serialization of the manga in a magazine. 

When is the Jujutsu Kaisen movie set?

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is set sometime before the events of the anime and spans just over a year from its inception to its end. At the beginning of the film Maki Zen'in, Toge Inumaki and Panda are in the first year of the Tokyo Institute of Occult Arts, while at the beginning of the anime they have moved on to the second.

What is the relationship between the anime and the Jujutsu Kaisen movie?

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is the prequel to the anime and tells about Yuta Okkotsu's entrance to the Tokyo Institute of Occult Arts. His classmates Maki Zen'in, Toge Inumaki and Panda will be in their second year at the beginning of the anime.  


The link between films and anime by Kaisen Jujutsu

Yuta Okkutsu is the protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen - Sorcery Fight 0: The institute of occult arts, the single volume manga designed and written by Gege Akutami in 2017, before the beginning of the "official" Jujutsu Kaisen manga.


Once this short-lived story was published with some success, Shueisha promised the author a space in a magazine for a longer publication, set in the same universe as Jujutsu Kaisen. Among the changes requested by the publisher to the author to kick off a long serialization there was the replacement of the protagonist. 

in fact Yuta Okkutsu is a very powerful sorcerer but also an insecure and introverted boy: a character who it did not win the hearts of Japanese readers. Shueisha then asked Gege Akutami to create a more vital and outgoing protagonist. The mangaka then kicked off Jujutsu Kaisen with the protagonist Yuji Itadori, a series that met with great success and soon became an anime. Since the manga does not cancel or deny the events of the first single volume, Yuta has simply turned into a sorcerer "on a mission" officially in the second year as a student of the Institute. 

When it was decided to make a film, has focused precisely on the plot of the single volume, also ideal for viewers who had neither read the manga nor seen the anime. Considering the resounding success achieved by the film, it must be admitted that even Yuta as a protagonist is not doing badly. 


Jujutsu Kaisen 0 - The Movie - film adaptation of that first self-contained volume by Gege Akutami - so it's both the prequel and "the dress rehearsal" of the anime and the official manga.
