As of writing, the anime movie has now reached US$183,310,489 in total, allowing it to rise up to become the 8th highest-grossing anime film of all time. At this point, JJK0 has overtaken Pokemon: The First Movie and is rapidly catching up with Stand by Me Doraemon.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is based on Gege Akutami's manga of the same name that serves as a prequel to the main manga. It follows Yuta Okkotsu as he enrolls at the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School in an effort to get rid of the powerful curse that used to be his childhood friend. With the help of the powerful sorcerer Satoru Gojo, Yuta learns to accept the curse and how to control it to help others.

The movie adaptation is currently screening in theaters worldwide and is expected to be released in more countries soon. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 premieres on Crunchyroll on September 21, 2022. Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is set to premiere in 2023.
