What is the plot of Jujutsu Kaisen 0?
The movie begins when a student named Yuta Okkotsu is being bullied, however, the bullies are brutally killed by an overprotective cursed spirit who clings to him. When the Jujutsu Society learns of this they want to have the boy executed since the curse that clings to him is a dangerous, special-grade spirit.
Satoru Gojo, a powerful sorcerer and a teacher, doesn’t agree and tries to convince them to let Yuta join the Tokyo Jujutsu Technical High instead. Yuta confides to Gojo that Rika was his childhood friend whom he’d promised to marry when they grew up. It was this lingering regret that caused Rika’s spirit to remain on Earth where she became a cursed spirit. Yuta doesn’t want Rika to hurt anyone else and decides to turn himself in even if that means he will be executed.
Gojo urges Yuta not to choose death so easily and tells him to join Jujutsu High so that he can learn how to control and ultimately break the curse. At the school, Yuta meets fellow students: Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki, and Panda, who all have unique abilities.
Although Yuta begins to form new friendships and begins to understand how to control the curse better, they’re suddenly attacked by a high-level curse sent by a man named Suguru Geto, who has his own agenda. Geto envies Yuta’s incredible power and wants to kill the boy so that he can absorb Rika. Will Gojo and the others be able to protect Yuta? You’ll have to watch the movie in order to find out!
