jujutsu kaisen 0

The JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 anime film continues to climb the all-time anime film charts in Japan, and it just made another leap in the rankings. The latest numbers have it pushing past 12.30 billion yen in the Japanese box office, which means it has surpassed Hayao Miyazaki’s 2013 movie The Wind Rises to become the 8th highest-grossing anime film of all time in the region.

That 12.30 billion yen total comes along with 8.85 million tickets sold. As for where JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 stands in the overall Japanese box office, it’s now in 23rd place, which puts it past both The Wind Rises and Disney’s live-action Aladdin remake.

VIZ Media published the JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 manga in North America and describes it:

Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student who is suffering from a serious problem—his childhood friend Rika has turned into a Curse and won’t leave him alone. Since Rika is no ordinary Curse, his plight is noticed by Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Jujutsu High, a school where fledgling exorcists learn how to combat Curses. Gojo convinces Yuta to enroll, but can he learn enough in time to confront the Curse that haunts him?

Next up for the series is a second season, which is currently set to premiere in Japan with MAPPA on animation sometime in 2023.
