Jujutsu Kaisen series is undeniably one of the hottest series right now. It’s all thanks to the release of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime series. After the airing of the first season of the anime adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen, MAPPA studio has revealed that the TV anime series will be followed by an anime film.

The announcement of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime film happened after the end of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1. The initial announcement did not reveal any release details until today. According to the official announcement released on Twitter (via Shonen Daily), MAPPA confirmed that Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will be airing on December 24th.

Here’s the translation of the Tweeter post using Google Translate:

Jujutsu Kaisen 0, will be having a theatrical release on December 24th (Friday). Furthermore, the teaser visual ban, which will be the first anime visual for this movie version, has been lifted!

As of the moment, we can’t confirm if this release date is a global release date of the anime film. But judging on the post and looking at some reports, it seems that December 24, 2021, is just the release of the anime film only in Japan.

About Jujutsu Kaisen

Jujutsu Kaisen follows the story of Yuji Itadori, a high school student with impressive natural talent. One day, Yuji’s friends got into trouble after unwrapping a talisman that attracts curses. A sorcerer named Megumi Fushiguro tried to help Yuji fighting the curses but he’s being overpowered. Without knowing the consequences, Yuji then devours the finger to protect his friends and Megumi. The finger that Yuji devoured is one of Sukuna’s fingers. Ryomen Sukuna is known as the King of Curses and his power allowed him to overtake Yuji’s body. However, Yuji can still control his body after eating Sukuna’s curses. Satoru Gojo decides to bring Yuji to the Tokyo Jujutsu High School and suggests to his superior to delay the death of Yuji until he already devoured all of Sukuna’s curses, giving them a chance to kill Ryomen Sukuna at once.

Jujutsu Kaisen was written by Gege Akutami. Since Shueisha serialized the manga series in 2018, Jujutsu Kaisen already garners 16 volumes. In October 2020, MAPPA studio released the anime adaptation of the manga series. The first season of Jujutsu Kaisen has a total of 24 episodes. The first anime film for Jujutsu Kaisen is set to premiere this Winter 2021.
