As the day for Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie draws near, more news about the same is surfacing on the internet. Ahead of the manga’s chapter 167, unofficial sources revealed some exciting news for the fans.
According to the sources, Jujutsu Kaisen will release a new special one-shot about Okkotsu Yuta. It will revolve around the daily life of JJK 0’s protagonist in his first year at Tokyo Jujutsu High.
This one-shot will appear in Weekly Shounen Jump Issue #2. Some of the fan-favorite characters will make a return in the one-shot – Maki, Panda, and Inumaki – as they accompany Okkotsu through his daily life.
The initial print run is being said to be 5 million copies and will have nine pages. However, the unofficial sources have not confirmed whether Gege Akutami himself has penned the story.
