The anime film currently stands as the 80th highest-earning film in Japanese box office history. Last year's highest-earning film, Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time, sold 3,961,480 tickets and earned 6,078,211,750 (roughly US$55.49 million) in its first three weeks at the box office.

Gege Akutami’s Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School manga (later renamed Jujutsu Kaisen 0) manga ran in Shueisha’s Jump GIGA magazine from April-July 2017. The series serves as a prequel to Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen series, which began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine in 2018. A free-to-play RPG developed by Sumzap was announced in June 2021, though nothing new regarding the project has been disclosed since.

MAPPA animated a 24-episode anime adaptation of the manga from October 2020-March 2021, with Sunghoo Park (Banana Fish, The God of High School) directing and Hiroshi Seko (Attack on Titan, Dorohedoro) serving as screenwriter.

MAPPA returned to animate Jujutsu Kaisen 0, alongside Park and Seko. The film stars Megumi Ogata (Evangelion’s Shinji Ikari, YuYu Hakusho’s Kurama) as Yuta Okkotsu, with Kana Hanazawa (Steins;Gate’s Mayuri Shiina, Psycho-Pass’ Akane Tsunemori) voicing Rika Orimoto.

VIZ Media licenses the manga in English alongside Jujutsu Kaisen 0. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and VIZ Media owns the home video rights.
