This just proves that everyone should be watching Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
This year was a huge year for anime films, with One Piece Film Red, Dragon Ball Super: Super Heroes, and Jujutsu Kaisen 0 all making amazing theatrical performances. One of those films has achieved an incredibly impressive record today as Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has become the 6th highest grossing anime film in the world.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 grossed $196,047,295, taking the position of Makoto Shinkai’s Weathering With You by about $2.3 million. At this point, there’s only an eight million dollar difference before Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will overtake Studio Ghibli’s Ponyo.
If you somehow managed to miss this massive movie, it has since been released on Crunchyroll. The anime subscription service summarizes the film as follows:
Yuji Itadori is a boy of tremendous physical strength despite living a normal high school life. One day, to save a classmate attacked by curses, he eats Ryomen Sukuna’s finger and carries the curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares a body with Ryomen Sukuna. Led by the most powerful of all wizards, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is accepted into Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights the curses… and so begins the heroic story of a boy-turned-curse to dispel a curse, a life from which he could never go back.
However, it’s possible that this won’t be the only shift in the rankings. One Piece Film Red came out just a few weeks ago and is already at number 9, so it’s possible there will be another shake up as well.
In addition, the upcoming Makoto Shinkai movie could top the list again as it had the best Japanese theatrical release of any of his films so far.
