Yuuta Okkotsu is haunted. Ever since his childhood friend Rika died in a traffic accident, her ghost has stuck with him. But her spirit does not appear as the sweet girl Yuuta once knew. Instead, she manifests as a monstrous and powerful entity who fiercely protects him. Unable to control Rika's violent behavior, Yuuta is helpless to stop the bloodshed that follows from her brutal vengeance. As a result, when apprehended by "Jujutsu" sorcerers—the secret guardians of the world, trained to combat forces like Rika—Yuuta wishes to be completely isolated so that no one else can get hurt.

Yet his apprehender, the master sorcerer Satoru Gojou, has different plans for him: he will join Jujutsu High School and learn to control Rika in order to help people. Now a first-year at this school, Yuuta starts to learn Jujutsu arts and combat malignant beings. Alongside his new classmates Maki Zenin, a Jujutsu weapons expert; Toge Inumaki, a spellcaster who uses his words as weapons; and Panda, a seemingly walking and talking panda bear, Yuuta begins to find his place in the world and, for once, to feel comfortable with his abilities. However, as his training progresses, Yuuta comes to learn that the dangers of the Jujutsu world go far beyond that of wicked spirits.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Tokyo Toritsu Jujutsu Koutou Senmon Gakkou is the prototype serialization of Jujutsu Kaisen. The story remains canon to the main series and it features a different central cast. Character designs used in this prototype were later altered in the main series; for instance, Toge Inumaki's initial design was later used for Jujutsu Kaisen's main protagonist Yuuji Itadori, while Toge underwent a redesign.

So as a prequel to Jujutsu Kaisen I think this works really well. Coming from someone who read the actual manga before this it was nice to see some more background for characters like Maki, Inumaki, Panda, and Gojo. I was a huge fan of Inumaki already because of his cursed speech but I really liked the characterization that we got in these few chapters. A character that usually only speaks in rice ball ingredients is obviously difficult but they do a great job of giving him depth despite that. I really like Yuuta's character and I think he could end up playing a big read more

As a prequel to Jujutsu Kaisen, this manga does everything it needs to and nothing really more. While not incredibly engaging it delivers a small mini-arc that is all together serviceable and enjoyable. The art is similar in quality to the main manga, that is to say not entirely impressive, but quirky in its own way.

The characters within the piece are enjoyable enough, though the over powered teacher figure feels slightly bland compared to his decently diverse students. The manga follows pretty standard character archetypes from shonen manga of the past. What comes most to mind is Bleach in how the villain and the read more

Despite that fact that this prequel to Jujutsu Kaisen is only 4 chapters long I think that Akutami Gege was able to do just enough to both introduce the reader to the world of JJK and entice them into wanting to read more.

Having already read a good few chapters of JJK I had already been introduced to Maki, Panda and Toge, but it was great to get to spend more time with them as actual main characters. I found Toge to be especially entertaining for me - though maybe that's because I absolutely love his curse words ability. But the stand-out from the cast for read more

For a prequel to Jujutsu Kaisen, it's very pleasant to read. There's nothing equal to the manga itself, but we had a lot of information that is totally important to understand the story between Gojou and Getou.

The story remains simple but very fortunate in terms of storytelling and captivate the readers by the art and development of the characters. The characters, with the exception of Okkotsu Yuuta, are already known by the readers and watchers of Jujutsu. We still had a little difference between then in terms of personality, but nothing that would made a roundabout of the characters without explanation. I truly recommend read more
