posted on by Adriana Hazra
Netflix describes the anime:
With his days numbered, high schooler Yuji decides to hunt down and consume the remaining 19 fingers of a deadly curse so it can die with him.
The anime premiered in Japan on October 2 and aired for 24 episodes.
Sunghoo Park (The God of High School) directed the anime at MAPPA. Hiroshi Seko (Attack on Titan: Lost Girls, Banana Fish, Vinland Saga) wrote and supervised the scripts. Tadashi Hiramatsu (His and Her Circumstances, Yuri!!! on Ice, Parasyte -the maxim-) designed the characters. Hiroaki Tsutsumi, Yoshimasa Terui, and Arisa Okehazama composed the music.
Eve performed the first opening theme song "Kaikai Kitan," and ALI performed the first ending theme song "Lost in Paradise feat. AKLO." Who-ya Extended performed the second opening theme song "Vivid Vice" and Cö shu Nie performed the second ending theme song "Give it Back."
Gekijō-ban Jujutsu Kaisen 0 (Jujutsu Kaisen 0 the Movie), a new anime film for the franchise, will open this winter. The film is based on Gege Akutami's Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Tokyo Toritsu Jujutsu Kōtō Senmon Gakkō (Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School) manga prequel story.
Akutami launched the main manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March 2018. The manga has 45 million copies in circulation, including print and digital copies. Akutami said in February that manga will "probably" end within two years. Akutami added he does not have confidence in that statement though.
Viz Media published the manga's first three chapters in English simultaneously with Japan as part of its Jump Start initiative. When Viz then switched to its new Shonen Jump model in December 2018, the company began publishing new chapters of the manga digitally. Shueisha is also publishing the manga on its MANGA Plus website.
