Those who have watched the anime will recognize these familiar faces. That’s right, even Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki and Panda were once fresh-faced freshman! This new art gives us a glimpse of what the students will look like in Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 serves as a prequel to the popular anime series. And your favorite second-year students haven’t changed too much. Maki is rocking the loose socks look, a shorter hairstyle and a different pair of glasses; Toge has shorter hair and a bright blue scarf; and Panda is, well, Panda!
The upcoming film is based on Volume 0 of the manga series, and follows the story of first-year student Yuta Okkotsu. Plagued by the spirit of his late childhood friend, Rika Orimoto, Yuta enrolls in the school at the urging of Jujutsu Tech instructor Satoru Gojo.
There, Yuta learns about Curses and how to wield cursed energy in the hopes of freeing himself of the dangerous spirit once and for all. From studio MAPPA, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is set for a theatrical release in Japan on December 24.
