Jujutsu Kaisen 0 already exceeds 180 million dollars in global collection
Although the studio film MAP, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, has already left Japanese theaters since the end of May, the film is still playing in theaters around the world. Recently, the Oricon outlet reported that the worldwide profit figure has risen to 24.25 billion yen (about 180 million US dollars).
If we break down the figures, 13.75 billion yen ($121.15 million) of the global box office of Jujutsu Kaisen 0 comes from Japan, while the remaining 10.5 billion yen ($78 million) come from 80 countries in which the film was shown in more than 8,000 theaters. 9.9 million tickets were sold for this film in theaters outside of Japan, with 9.8 million tickets sold for the film in Japan alone (Please note that the US dollar amount is for reference only and is not entirely accurate to the US amount earned by the film. This is due to the huge drop of the yen against the dollar in the last month).
The film remained the highest-grossing film in 2021 in Japan, surpassing what was achieved by Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time (at the end of the year, the second was declared the winner since Jujutsu Kaisen 0 I couldn’t get over it.) On the other hand, Gege Akutami the publication of the manga began in the magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump from the publisher Shueisha in March 2018. The work inspired a twenty-four-episode anime series that aired in Japan from October 2020 to March 2021.
It should be remembered that the video game for smartphones Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade will be available soon in the catalog QooApp in this link.
Synopsis of Jujutsu Kaisen 0
Yuuta Okkotsu is cursed. Ever since his childhood friend Rika died in a traffic accident, his ghost has stayed with him. But his spirit doesn’t appear as the sweet girl Yuuta once knew. Instead, he manifests as a monstrous and powerful entity that fiercely protects him. Unable to control Rika’s violent behavior, Yuuta is powerless to stop the bloodshed that follows her brutal revenge. As a result, when he is taken prisoner by the “Jujutsu” wizards, the secret guardians of the world, trained to combat forces like Rika, Yuuta wishes to be completely isolated so that no one else can be hurt.
However, his captor, the master sorcerer Satoru Gojou, has other plans for him: he will enter the Jujutsu High School and learn to control Rika to help people. Now, in his first year at this school, Yuuta begins to learn the arts of Jujutsu and fight evil beings. Together with his new companions Maki Zenin, an expert in Jujutsu weapons; Toge Inumaki, a sorcerer who uses his words as weapons; and Panda, a panda bear that seems to walk and talk, Yuuta begins to find his place in the world and, for once, to feel comfortable with his abilities. However, as his training progresses, Yuuta learns that the dangers of the world of Jujutsu go far beyond evil spirits.
