Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the most popular anime of recent months, since its premiere in the fall 2020 season. This story tells the adventures of Yuuji Itadori after being involved in the world of sorcery by a … peculiar accident that leads to being the recipient of a very powerful curse.

And while the manga written by Gege Akutami continues to publish a new chapter every week, perhaps there is something that you still do not know as a fan of this work.

It turns out, before officially publishing Jujutsu Kaisen as a serialized manga, its author had previously released a short story on the pages of Jump GIGA in 2017. The series is called Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School, and it only has four chapters.

This prequel did so well with readers that Akutami then decided to go big with Jujutsu Kaisen officially.


If you are wondering how interesting this story is and if you should give it a try, we tell you that in English it is already available under the title Jujutsu Kaisen 0 edited by Viz Media.

And in fact, as is evident, many of the ideas shown in these four chapters germinated in what we are seeing today; however, everything that happened in these previous years is considered canon within the main story.

In fact, many of the things that are happening in the current arc of the manga may have origins in events that were narrated in Jujutsu Kaisen 0.

As well as delving into one of history’s greatest villains, you can also get a glimpse of characters like Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki, and Panda in their early years as students.

Let’s hope that in Latin America Panini will soon bring us this story to Spanish. In the meantime you can buy the volumes of the current manga on the official website, or read each new chapter totally free through Manga Plus.
