Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie Finds Its Rika Orimoto

Jujutsu Kaisen Movie

Get your first look at the sinister spirit our heroes will face in Jujutsu Kaisen 0 this winter in Japan! The official website recently announced that Kana Hanazawa will lend her vocal talents to the film as the complicated character Rika Orimoto. 

Rika was a childhood friend of Yuta Okkotsu who passed away at a young age. She returns as a bitter, special-grade cursed spirit that plagues Yuta—and catches the attention of a certain teacher at Jujutsu Tech.

Yuta enrolls in the school to learns about Curse and Cursed Techniques. Can he free himself of the dangerous spirit once and for all? 

Kana Hanazawa (Demon Slayer, Tokyo Ghoul) is looking forward to working with the beloved voice actress Megumi Ogata (Sailor Moon, Neon Genesis Evangelion) as Yuta, she said in the announcement.

The two join a cast of characters from the anime series, including Satoru Gojo, Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki and Panda. All returning voice actors play a slightly younger version of themselves than we’re used to seeing in this story, which is set before the events of the series.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0, based on the Gege Akutami manga by the same name, hits movie theaters in Japan on December 24.
