Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is the first and the top-rated movie premiered in Japan in 2021 according to Japanese box office sales. At the same time, this isn’t the only record the movie is breaking as Jujutsu Kaisen is the second only to Demon Slayer Mugen Train that was premiered at the end of 2020. The movie premiered on December 24th, and after less than a week generated nearly 34 million US dollars in sales, equivalent to 3.9 billion yen.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 also made the manga more popular as the manga showed 10 times greater sales after the first week of the movie screening in Japan. A detail that might have pushed thousands of fans who watched the movie to buy the manga, could have been the Jujutsu Kaisen 0.5 booklet featuring 9 pages of art and panels that were never published in the prequel on which the movie is based.
According to sales reports, a bit over 108,000 manga copies were sold between December 13th and 19th, while the sales numbers show over million Jujutsu Kaisen manga copies sold a couple of days prior and the week after the movie premiere, between December 20th and 26th. The most notable rise in the manga sales was noted in three days after the movie was premiered in Japan, from December 24th to 27th.
