Jujutsu Kaisen Zero: Here's a Quote, and It's On The Tip Of My Tongue

The worldwide release of the film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is well under way. An animated movie that was a great blockbuster in Japan and brought in US$91M at the domestic box office last year has anime lovers immensely excited.

Prequel story about curses and love with a new Jujutsu Kaisen season one protagonist.

We follow Yuta Okkotsu in his first year at the Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School, which is set a year before Yuji Itadori's chronology.

A comprehensive translation of the four-chapter manga series Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 0 by Gege Akutami, the movie, which clocks in at little over 1.5 hours, promises top-notch 3D and 2D animation by MAPPA, a rousing soundtrack, and dialogue narrated by some of the best voice actors in the business.

Take a time to enjoy our selection of the best statements from Jujutsu Kaisen 0 that continue to motivate us every day if, like us, you have seen this animated masterpiece and are still in awe of some of its breathtaking scenes.

“Won’t it get lonely all by yourself?” –Satoru Gojou

The first sequence of the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is similar to the first episode of the show, with the exception that Yuta Okkotsu sits on the chair instead of Yuji Itadori.

We swiftly learn from a brief flashback that Yuta, then 16 years old, attempted suicide after being unable to manage the curse that has been attacking others on his behalf even though he never planned to do so.

“I want to have a connection with someone. I want to be needed by someone. I want the confidence to feel like it’s okay to live.” –Yuta Okkotsu

Gojo's students can tell that he's not afraid to push them to their limits as a teacher.

Yuta and first-year classmate Maki Zenin went to an elementary school where two kids had gone missing on their very first mission.

Gojo leaves them behind the veil and waits outside after explaining that their intention is to cast out the curse and save the kids.

Of course, in the world of Jujutsu Kaisen, nothing ever goes as expected.

The two are engulfed by the curse and land inside the beast's belly alongside the two lost kids. Maki and the children begin to struggle without resistance to curses.

Despite being immune to curses, Yuta was indecisive in this terrible predicament.

He allowed his feelings to overwhelm him as he writhed in terror.

Maki screams at him, "Why did you come to the magical technical school? ", frustrated by his fear.

What are you planning to do? What do you desire? What do you hope to accomplish?

Yuta responds after gathering his thoughts with fresh vigor. He stated,

"I want to connect with someone. I want someone to need me. I want to have the assurance that living is okay."

He wanted to kill himself in the opening scene, so this situation is a sharp contrast.

It is obvious that Gojo's remarks made an impact on Yuta since, in the heat of the moment, he finally acknowledges that he does wish to live despite bearing Rika's curse.

“Love is the most twisted curse of all.” –Satoru Gojou

Yuta spoke with his teacher at the hospital after the elementary school incident.

He mumbled out loud, recalling his relationship with Rika in the past, that it's likely that he cursed her rather than she cursed him.

Then Gojo responds,

"This is just my hypothesis, but maybe love is the most perverse curse of all."

Coming from someone like Satoru Gojo, who keeps everyone at a distance, it is an intriguing phrase.

We only come to understand how much he values Suguru Geto, his best buddy, later in the narrative after everything that has transpired.

"Twisted" in this context could refer to his decision not to kill Geto in the past, despite the fact that he knew doing so would result in the loss of more lives than Gojo could rescue, all out of loyalty to his closest friend.

“It’s unforgivable to steal their youth away from kids, no matter who they are.” –Satoru Gojou

Rika Orimoto, a special grade curse spirit, made an appearance during Yuta's first mission, which upset the school's senior administration.

Gojo accepted full responsibility for averting this scenario after being assigned with the task and openly rebelled against the council.

What a bunch of tasteless old men, he thought aloud to himself as he left.

I'm not trying to turn into that. No matter who they are, taking youth away from children is unacceptable.

After Yuji Itadori's death in season one, Gojo openly criticizes the council for manipulating events at the juvenile detention center.

This is a crucial turning point in the narrative. At the mortuary, Gojo abruptly proposed to assistant director Kiyotaka Ijichi that they execute all the higher ups.

The audience is given a small glimpse of how intense Gojo's hatred of the council is.

His heart is in the right place, despite the fact that his behavior as a teacher is occasionally questioned by the kids.

He understands that instilling the appropriate principles in young people is the only way to reform the system because they are the future.

“I’ll give you my future, heart, and body… I love you Rika… This is pure love.” –Yuta Okkotsu

The developing friendship between Yuta and Rika—despite the fact that she is no longer a human—is a significant part of Jujutsu Kaisen 0's narrative.

At first, Yuta intended to end the curse by committing himself; if that failed, he planned to withdraw from society.

In the end, he caved in to it during the last conflict. Naturally in a positive manner.

Rika appeared to be an uncontrollable force tormenting Yuta, a true "curse" in every sense of the word. She was portrayed as a weeping monster.

Yuta was finally able to speak with her, channel his energy, and work with rather than against his curse with the aid of Gojo, the school, and his friends.

He was more than ready to give himself to Rika in exchange for her limitless power in a last-ditch effort to save Maki, Panda, and Inumaki from Geto.

It is more common to hear the phrase "I'll offer you my future, heart, and body... I love you Rika..." during a wedding than on a battlefield.

It's... praiseworthy that he even kisses the mouth of the horrifying-looking curse to seal his commitment.
