Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie deals with the story of the protagonist, Yuta Okkotsu, who is constantly haunted by the spirit of Rika, a girl whom he loved once. Things turn out to be really unfortunate as Rika’s spirit has transformed into a Curse. The soul has become evil and is feeding on the negative emotions of people. Rika’s spirit had the intention of protecting Yuta, but as we see that, the spirit becomes evil and harms anyone who tries to come near Yuta.
Yuka has to keep himself in exile till the time he is taken to Jujutsu High. In Jujutsu High, he is taught all the necessary skills to keep Rika’s spirit under control and use it for protecting humanity and fighting against the other curses. The movie will not feature Yuji Itadori and several other important characters from the series like Toge Inumaki and Satoru Gojo. All these characters played an important part in the main series. However, in the movie, we will not see them as the movie focuses on one aspect.
Once the first season of the very popular anime series ended, the film was then revealed.
