Jujutsu Kaisen: New Yuta Manga to be Released Alongside Prequel Movie

In a new Jujutsu Kaisen one-shot manga, Yuta Okkotsu will take centre stage once more. According to Weekly Shonen Jump News – Unofficial, series creator, Gege Akutami has written a new solo narrative about Yuta Okkotsu, the sword-wielding Curse user who also stars in the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 precursor manga and film. The new one-shot chapter will be published in Weekly Shonen Jump, and it is expected to be included in a special booklet distributed to Japanese moviegoers who see the new prequel film. Akutami and the film’s crew will also provide commentary in the booklet.
Yuta was the main character in Akutami’s manga Jujutsu Kaisen 0, which was first published under the title “Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School.” The plot follows Yuta, a young man who is haunted by the spirit of his departed childhood sweetheart, Rika before Yuji Itadori is exposed to the realm of Curses and sorcerers. The brief miniseries was released roughly a year before the main Jujutsu Kaisen manga series debuted, and it introduced several of the characters who would eventually appear in Akutami’s series, including Satoru Gojo and the wicked Suguru Geto. Following the success of JJK, the prequel narrative was renamed to reflect its place in the series’ timeline.
The prequel’s film adaption will be released in Japan on December 24. Sunghoo Park, who helmed the first season of the anime adaptation of the series, will direct the film. Park recently disclosed that he had planned to start the anime series with Yuta’s origins but that he ultimately felt that Yuji’s narrative would be a better place to start. The film’s international release date has yet to be determined.
Weekly, Shonen Jump’s latest big hit is Jujutsu Kaisen. The series debuted in 2018, and it was just stated that by the end of the year, it will have sold 60 million copies, exceeding the sales of the previous series like Inuyasha, Haikyuu!!, and My Hero Academia. Despite a two-month pause over the summer, the series was Japan’s best-selling manga series of the year, selling more than 30 million copies. Akutami’s work is on its way to becoming only the 19th manga series to sell over 100 million copies, joining the ranks of other Shonen Jump successes like One Piece, Dragon Ball, and Naruto.
