The highly popular anime film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is finally coming to theaters in the Philippines!
The film premiered in Japan last Dec. 24, 2021, then premiered in the United States on Mar. 18, 2022.
SM Cinema has announced that Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will be showing in its theaters starting June 22, 2022.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 serves as the prequel to parent series Jujutsu Kaisen (呪術廻戦). Both are Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Gege Akutami. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 was first serialized in Shueisha's Jump GIGA from April to July 2017 under the title Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School, then was renamed to Jujutsu Kaisen 0 after it was compiled into a tankōbon volume.
While parent series Jujutsu Kaisen stars Yuji Itadori, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 stars Yuta Okkotsu (CV: Megumi Ogata), who experiences tragedy in relation to his childhood friend Rika Orimoto (CV: Kana Hanazawa). This results in Yuta discovering his cursed energy and enrolling in Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School. There, he befriends Maki Zen'in, Toge Inumaki, and Panda, the students one year above Yuji Itadori.
Below is the promotional video before the film premiered in Japan.
