Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Director Inks New Sketch of Yuta and Rika

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is not far away from its stateside release, and fans are already itching to tune in. The anime’s hit film has made a splash in Japan as it stands as one of last year’s top-grossing titles. Now, all eyes are on its upcoming stateside premiere, and the movie’s director has inked a special sketch to celebrate.

The gift comes from Park Sunghoo, the man who oversaw Jujutsu Kaisen 0 from start to finish. The Korean director posted a black-and-white sketch of Yuta to fans in South Korea, and he made sure to include Rika as you can see below.

Clearly, Park is talented with ink as he drew Yuta and Rika in profile for fans. The first-year sorcerer looks determined in this shot, and his ringed eyes are focused more so than usual. As for Rika, the Special Grade curse is as horrifying as usual. Her gaping maw gives Venom a run for his money, and Sunghoo nails Rika’s unnatural vibe just right.

As you can imagine, fans are eager to see Jujutsu Kaisen 0 outside of Japan, and it will not be long before they get the chance. The movie will debut in North America on March 18 in more than 1,500 theaters. Funimation and Crunchyroll are overseeing the launch, and Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has enjoyed global launches already. South Korea just welcomed the film to its roster, so you can understand why Sunghoo wanted to share this sketch with those in his home country.

If you are not caught up with Jujutsu Kaisen, you can use this film as a launchpad as it serves as its prequel. You can then tune into season one of Jujutsu Kaisen on Crunchyroll or Funimation. A second season has been announced and will debut in Winter 2023.
