The film is based on the JUMP COMICS/Shueisha prequel manga of Gege Akutami’s hit supernatural adventure series.
Synopsis: When they were children, Rika Orimoto was killed in a traffic accident in front of her close friend, Yuta Okkotsu.
“It’s a promise. When we both grow up, we’ll get married.
Rika became an apparition and Yuta longed for his own death after suffering under his curse, but Jujutsu’s greatest wizard, Satoru Gojo, welcomed him to Jujutsu High. There, Yuta meets his classmates, Maki Zen’in, Toge Inumaki, and Panda, and finally finds his own resolve.
“I want to have the confidence to say it’s good that I’m alive!”
“While I’m at Jujutsu High, I’ll break Rika-chan’s curse.”
Meanwhile, the vile curse user, Suguru Geto, who was expelled from school for slaughtering ordinary people, appears in front of Yuta and the others.
“Next December 24, we will hold the Hundred Demons Night Parade.”
While Geto advocates creating a paradise for jujutsu wizards only, he unleashes a thousand curses on Shinjuku and Kyoto to exterminate all non-wizards.
Will Yuta finally be able to stop Geto? And what will happen to break Rika’s curse…?
