Crunchyroll is releasing JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 in North America, starting from March 18th, 2022. Sunghoo Park (JUJUTSU KAISEN) is serving as the film’s director, Hiroshi Seko (Attack on Titan: The Final Season) is the screenwriter, Tadashi Hiramatsu (JUJUTSU KAISEN) is the lead character designer, and Yui Umemoto (Grand Blue Fantasy The Animation Season 2) is the assistant director. MAPPA is handling the animation production. 

The original manga by Gege Akutami was first serialized in Jump GIGA in 2017 for four volumes under a different name. It was later republished as a single volume tankoubon in November 2018. The story is a prequel to Akutami’s JUJUTSU KAISEN manga, which was first serialized in March 2018 and received an anime adaptation in 2020.

VIZ Media describes the manga as:

Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student who is suffering from a serious problem—his childhood friend Rika has turned into a Curse and won’t leave him alone. Since Rika is no ordinary Curse, his plight is noticed by Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Jujutsu High, a school where fledgling exorcists learn how to combat Curses. Gojo convinces Yuta to enroll, but can he learn enough in time to confront the Curse that haunts him?
