Jujutsu Kaisen 0 plot and fan reaction
As aforementioned, the JJK0 film has arrived in North American theaters this week. Fans in the region are incredibly excited to go see the film, with some even announcing their intent to watch it multiple times.
JJK0 follows Yuta Okkotsu, a teenage boy who is cursed by a spirit. The spirit is none other than his childhood love, Rika Orimoto, and she presents a danger to both Yuta and those around him. Eventually, he finds himself at Tokyo Jujutsu High to learn more about Rika and how to break the curse.
Thus, the film begins, following Yuta’s adventures in the Jujutsu world. The manga volume was already adored by fans of the mainline series, and the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film seems to only be elevating the story in their eyes.
Many fans are posting stills and scenes from the movie, happily praising and sharing their own experiences. This perfectly exemplifies the quality of the animation and direction that MAPPA Studios has delivered.
Others are posting promotional materials for the film in various North American cities. These tweets also praise the exposure the film is getting, as well as its ability to be viewed completely independently from the mainline series.
A plethora of fans are posting memes to celebrate the occasion, signifying how important the film's arrival is in their own eyes. Considering the success that Demon Slayer: Mugen Train was met with, it’s likely Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will see similar levels of acclaim in North America.
Fans are incredibly excited that the JJK0 film has arrived in North American theaters. The mainline series was an international success, and the film will only serve to further expose the franchise to new fans.
The praise the film's direction and animation are receiving is also very encouraging. The compliments in those regards would seemingly indicate a similar level of animation quality to the mainline series.
