Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is the tenth most successful anime film of all time!

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has become the tenth highest-grossing anime film ever released thanks to its latest box office milestone!  Gage Akutami's original manga series Shueisha's Weekly Shnen Jump has been one of the magazine's most successful recent hits, and only gained even more success thanks to the debut of its anime adaptation.  After the series' first season, the franchise made its feature film debut, tackling Akutami's original prequel series, Jujutsu Kaisen 0.  It was already taking over the box office in Japan since it debuted last year, and that dominance has continued through its international release.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 became one of the best-performing films of 2021 in Japan since its release, and now that success is even more impressive with its worldwide release.  With the latest update on Jujutsu Kaisen 0's box office performance from the weekend of March 27, the film has now grossed 13.16 billion yen (about $113.88 million USD) with 9.38 million ticket sales.  It has become the 19th highest-grossing film in Japan, and with this latest milestone, Studio Ghibli's Arieti has become the tenth highest-grossing anime film, beating the previous one.

If you're curious what to expect, you can find ComicBook.com's review of Jujutsu Kaisen 0 here.  Here's an excerpt to get you started, "It's an absolutely astonishing work of animation that goes beyond anything you've seen in TV anime. It ranges from the light to the impressive fluidity to all the little character moments in the action sequences."  Each of those scenes is also different in its own way, and a feast for the eyes and ears. Megumi Ogata and Kayleigh Mackie serve as major standouts for each cast, respectively. It's kind of an enhanced experience  Seems, and it's hard to do that with a TV series that is already garnering immense praise for these aspects."
