Hi everyone! I am looking forward to seeing the movie, Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0! It's Boss from Manga Republic.
Hi there!! Actually, I almost forgot the story of Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 because I read it a long, long time ago. It's Saori from Manga Republic!
Was the comic book for Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 already released? I wonder if I should read it before watching the movie.
I am not sure if the contents of the comic for Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 and the movie are the same, but I can tell you this for sure......!! It is worth reading the comic book for Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 even if you do not watch the movie...... so you should read it!!!!
【Movie Adaptation in 2021】
Let's prepare for the year-end premiere!
What is Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0?
What is Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0?
OK, from here, I will explain about the manga, Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0, as simply as possible!
Spoiler alert: Please note that this article will contain some details of Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 and the original - Jujutsu Kaisen!
When was Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 released?
── It was serialized in the monthly magazine version of Weekly Shounen Jump, “Jump GIGA” magazine in July 2017.
Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 contains 4 episodes. It was serialized in the monthly magazine version of Weekly Shounen Jump, “Jump GIGA” magazine in July 2017 as a short-term serialization. The title was “Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School” in the magazine.
At that time, the title was not Jujutsu Kaisen, was it?
No it wasn't. This volume 0 was released in between the Jujutsu Kaisen volumes 3 and 4, in December 2018.
When does the story of Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 happen?
── The story took place around November 2016.
I see...... then when was the story for Jujutsu Kaisen vol.1 taking place?
Jujutsu Kaisen vol.1 began around June 2018, so the story of Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 seemed to take place about 1-1.5 years before the story of Jujutsu Kaisen vol.1.
Who is the main character of Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0?
── A high school student, Okkotsu Yuuta-kun, was possessed by a curse.
In Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0, a high school student, Okkotsu Yuuta-kun is the main character. He was possessed by a strong curse!! The story begins with the scene of Yuuta-kun being bullied by his classmates. The curse on Yuuta was activated and the bullies were all “packed” in the locker, yes, literally “all of them were packed in a locker”.
It looks like the curse was trying to protect Yuuta-kun without Yuuta’s intention. The bullies did not die but got injured badly. Yuuta-kun may be caught by Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School......
What is Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 about?
── Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 describes the story of Yuuta-Kun who is a freshman at Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School.
Since the story took place at the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School about 1.5 years before Jujutsu kaisen vol.1, can you find any characters who were senior students in Jujutsu Kaisen vol.2, in Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 ?
Yes! you can find them! The strong curse that Yuuta was possessed by was a high-grade demon curse. So, Yuuta-kun was given a death sentence. (So if Yuuta dies, the curse dies as well.) However, Gojou Satoru-sensei who was starring in Jujutsu Kaisen vol.1, tried to save him and transferred him into his class at the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School.
Wow! I know these characters well! Oh wait! The character designs look a little different.
Yes, I think so, too! Yuuta-Kun & Fushiguro-Kun and Inumaki-Kun & Itadori-Kun look similar. Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 was the prototype of the Jujutsu Kaisen vol.1. So, the character designs must be kept.
Yuuta-kun did not know anything about the curse or that his new school would teach him about curses. He did not want to hurt anyone because of the curse he was possessed by. So, he agreed to accept the death sentence. However, he was convinced to learn how to control the curse in order to help others at the Jujutsu high school. He joined the class promptly and got to fight against some cursed monsters...... but......?
Should I read Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0?
── YES! YOU SHOULD READ IT!!!!!! BECAUSE......
Many of you may have already noticed, but Yuuta-Kun is starring in the opening of Jujutsu Kaisen 2nd season.
If you allow me to spoil a little bit, Yuuta-Kun will play an active role in the original-Jujutsu Kaisen. Actually, his role is very important in the story!
Who the hell is this person!!? To find out more about his identity, everyone must read Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 eagerly!
He looked different in 1.5 years. I wonder what happened to him during those 1.5 years. If he was a junior, he should have been able to fight with senior students for the interleague game......
Why is Yuuta-Kun starring in Jujutsu Kaisen? Why is Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 being made into movie at this time (at right after the anime first season ended)?
...... There are incredible secrets, and the story is intricately intertwined. For those reasons, please read Jujutsu Kaisen vol.0 before the movie premiere!
The latest volume 17 is on sale now!
Check here for Jujutsu Kaisen comics!
That's all for today! I'll see you in the next article!!
Have a good day!
