What is the plot of Jujutsu Kaisen 0?
The film begins when a student named Yuta Okkotsu is being bullied, however the bullies are brutally killed by an overprotective cursed spirit who is clinging to him. When the Jujutsu Society finds out about this, they want to have the boy executed because the curse that weighs on him is a dangerous spirit of special kindness.
Satoru Gojo, a powerful magician and teacher, disagrees and tries to convince her to let Yuta attend Tokyo Jujutsu Technical High instead. Yuta confides in Gojo that Rika was his childhood friend whom he promised to marry when they grow up. It was this lingering regret that led to Rika’s spirit remaining on Earth, where she became a cursed spirit. Not wanting Rika to hurt anyone else, Yuta decides to turn himself in, even if it means him being executed.
Gojo tells Yuta not to choose death so easily and urges him to join Jujutsu High so he can learn to control and eventually break the curse. At school, Yuta meets her classmates: Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki, and Panda, all of whom have unique abilities.
Although Yuta begins to make new friends and begins to understand how to better control the curse, they are suddenly attacked by a high-level curse sent by a man named Suguru Geto who has his own agenda. Geto envies Yuta’s incredible strength and wants to kill the boy so he can absorb Rika. Will Gojo and the others be able to protect Yuta? You have to watch the movie to find out!
