The time has finally come – Crunchyroll is officially streaming the smash-hit anime film JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 on their website today, September 21!
After receiving an astounding $34M at the North American box office (with a total of $166M worldwide), Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will be available to stream digitally for the first time outside of Japan.
Many of us have already become obsessed with the anime and are eagerly awaiting season two, which still has yet to receive an official release date. All we know is that we can expect it as early as next year! In the meantime, however, we will now be able to quench our thirsts with the riveting backstory found in Jujutsu Kaisen 0, which follows our protagonist Yuta Okkotsu throughout his journey in the mysterious Tokyo Jujutsu High School.
Fans who did not get to experience the film in theaters will be thrilled to see familiar faces, such as the ever-popular Satoru Gojo, as well as new characters who set the stage for this epic prequel to the anime we already know and love.
We are already vividly aware of MAPPA’s animation in the series being breathtakingly seamless and beautiful, with Jujutsu Kaisen going as far as being named Anime of the Year by the 2021 Crunchyroll Anime Awards. This film, without question, lives up to the MAPPA standards with astounding animation sequences that will keep you at the edge of your seats.

Official Synopsis for JUJUTSU KAISEN 0
When they were children, Rika Orimoto was killed in a traffic accident right before the eyes of her close friend, Yuta Okkotsu.
“It’s a promise. When we both grow up, we’ll get married.”
Rika became an apparition, and Yuta longed for his own death after suffering under her curse,
but the greatest Jujutsu sorcerer, Satoru Gojo, welcomed him into Jujutsu High.
There Yuta meets his classmates, Maki Zen’in, Toge Inumaki, and Panda, and finally finds his own determination.
“I want the confidence to say it’s okay that I’m alive!”
“While I’m at Jujutsu High, I’ll break Rika-chan’s curse.”
Meanwhile, the vile curse user, Suguru Geto, who was expelled from the school for massacring ordinary people, appears before Yuta and the others.
“This coming December 24th, we shall carry out the Night Parade of a Hundred Demons.”
While Geto advocates for creating a paradise for only jujutsu sorcerers, he unleashes a thousand curses upon Shinjuku and Kyoto to exterminate all non-sorcerers.
Will Yuta be able to stop Geto in the end?
And what will happen to breaking Rika’s curse…?
