Before Jujutsu Kaisen 0 hits theaters soon, MAPPA is holding a special event where the voice behind the main character Yuta will be presented. The studio gives everyone a glimpse of Yuta, which makes fans even more excited.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will be out in about a month, and MAPPA will be luring everyone out of the film with cardboard cutouts. The panel was devoted to everything related to the franchise, and a clip shared on Twitter revealed a glimpse of Yuta’s voice.
Comicbook noted that the anime veteran Megumi Ogata Yuta will lend her voice. The actress’s voice is best known in the anime world after playing the roles of Shinji in Neon Genesis Evangelion, Kurama in Yu Yu Hakusho, and Yugi in Yu-Gi-Oh.
In the video, Ogata uses a deep voice for Yuta that fits the character perfectly. From here, fans will see more of her incredible performance in Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
Meanwhile, the movie’s latest trailer features some of the main characters fans are about to get to know. In addition, the fans are hearing the new theme song for the first time, as reported by Polygon.
The film will follow events before the original manga takes place. Yuta will take center stage, along with his childhood best friend, Rika, who is killed in a car accident.
Your cursed ghost is starting to haunt him wherever he goes. But when he arrives at the jujutsu academy, Gojo teaches him about the cursed spirits and what to do against them.
So the video teaser gives a good insight into the film’s antagonist, Suguru Geto. At the end of the clip the title song Itto by King Gnu can be heard. The piece fits in perfectly with the intense events of the trailer, like all cursed acts.
With the hype surrounding Jujutsu Kaisen 0, everyone is now looking forward to the release. Fortunately, it will finally be released on December 24th – the same day that Baraddo Kitaguni’s adaptation of the novel, based on the film’s script, will be released in Japan, Anime News Network reports.
Unfortunately, it is not yet known whether the film will hit theaters internationally, but it is widely believed that it will follow the pattern of other anime releases.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is expected to be released in the rest of the world sometime in 2022. Then fans will also find out which English voice actor will play the role of fan favorite Yuta.
