Here's When You Can Finally Watch The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie At Home

"Jujutsu Kaisen" has been one of the latest break-out hits as anime continues to grow in popularity around the globe (via Comic Book). The series follows a group of Jujutsu Sorcerers, warriors who specialize in a type of magic that allows them to battle the living curses that wreak havoc all over Japan.

Though the series can be incredibly violent and even downright disturbing, its content is right at home with other massive anime series currently overtaking the cultural zeitgeist like "Attack on Titan" and "The Rising of the Shield Hero." With that in mind, though, some parents might want to look into "Jujutsu Kaisen" before letting their kids watch it.

Either way, after a strong first season, the incredible shonen anime is set to return for more with its upcoming second season. However, to get the full breadth of the story, fans will want to check out the prequel movie "Jujutsu Kaisen 0" beforehand. Luckily you'll be able to watch the film from the comfort of your own home very soon.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 comes to Crunchyroll on September 21

"Jujutsu Kaisen 0" will be arriving on Crunchyroll just as the autumn season begins. Starting on September 21, the movie will be available to watch for anyone with an account on the anime streaming service but may be restricted to Premium members for a time. Though Crunchyroll boasts a free tier with ads, newer and more in-demand content is occasionally locked behind the paywall.

Regardless, "Jujutsu Kaisen 0" follows Yuta Okkatsu (Megumi Ogata/Kayleigh McKee), a bullied student who is regularly defended by the spirit of his dead friend, who haunts him still. However, when he meets with the Jujutsu Sorcerers, they begin to help him gain control over the spirit in hopes of using its power for good.

The film was a success both critically and financially, scoring over $160 million in worldwide box office revenue (via Box Office Mojo). Though the movie isn't considered essential viewing by all fans of the anime series, it does provide a lot of earlier context and key information regarding many of the Jujutsu Sorcerers in the show. It looks like Crunchyroll has exclusive rights to stream the movie as it's not available to rent on platforms like YouTube as of press time. With that in mind, "Jujutsu Kaisen" fans who don't already have an account with the service will probably want to at least get a trial account when the movie drops on September 21.
