Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Who are The New Character Additions?
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will be following Yuta who is haunted by the cursed spirit of his best friend, Rika, who was killed in a car accident. Upon her arrival in the Jujutsu Academy, there is Gojo who teaches him how to manage the cursed spirit following him. The main antagonist of the film is Suguru Geto and recently, new characters are announced who would be joining the cast. Here are the additions:
First is Larue who has heart-shaped stickers stuck on his nipples which is kind of his charm point and he usually hangs out with Nanako and Mimiko, the twins who do everything together and they were both saved by Geto. They have different cursed techniques: Nanako uses a phone and Mimiko uses rope and plushes.
Another addition is Manami who makes sure that the money of the organization is managed. Then, there is Miguel, who is from overseas and he is a curse user using a rope that has been woven for decades created by a jujutsu sorcerer from where he came from and with that he is powerful, lastly, there is Toshihisa who is like Geto as he despises non-sorcerers, too, and he has a notably large scar on his face.
Jujutsu Kaisen is from the pages of the Japanese supernatural shōnen manga series of the same name by Gege Akutami published in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump in March 2018. It also has a light novel series. In January 2021, Jujutsu Kaisen manga ranked second in Oricon’s weekly manga ranking.
