Sales of Gege Akutami's manga should soar after debut from Jujutsu Kaisen 0 in the cinema, the prequel of the animated series, which already attracted over a million fans to the cinemas in the first few days of the program. However, the increase for Shueisha has been enormous to say the least.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is currently struggling to become one of the most productive films in the world History of Japanese Cinema, a tedious but not impossible undertaking given the greeting from the feature film in the rising sun. The film's popularity apparently also had an effect on its paper counterpart, the original Akutami Sensei comic, which will be one of the best-selling manga by 2021.

In fact, after the film was released, Jujutsu Kaisen sales in theaters rose from 108,471 copies / week to a monstrous number of 1,124,095 copies / week in less than 7 days of distribution. Growth by the numbers is just over 1000%. The reviews are currently very positive and fans from all over the world are already looking forward to a program of the film overseas.
