Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is based on Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School, the prequel manga to the main series. It is written and illustrated by Gege Akutami. The manga was serialized in Shueisha’s Jump GIGA magazine from April to July 2017.
After Akutami launched Jujutsu Kaisen in 2018, the series was retroactively retitled Jujutsu Kaisen 0—making it a prequel—and released in a single tankōbon volume in December 2018.
