After the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie character design’s release, the franchise explains the big change in Toge Inumaki’s appearance.
Instead of continuing Yuji Itadori’s story in a second season, the franchise has announced the coming of the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie. However, the film will tell a different story from what the anime has told.
Toge Inumaki’s Dramatic Makeover
According to Comicbook, the movie will be exploring an important part of the series’ past. Aside from introducing Yuta Okkotsu, it will also formally present the franchise’s new side characters.
So, as this is adapted from the prequel series, there will be a major makeover of second-year characters, like Toge.
In Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie, Tokyo’s Jujutsu Tech School students will be seen in their freshman year. Here, they are just about to meet Yuta.
Their looks will be based on the rougher character designs of the original series by the creator Gege Akutami himself.
To recall, before the main series began, the mangaka already dropped the prequel series.
At the time, it was still known as Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School. Toge’s look back then was similar to that of Yuji.
So, to make them look different from each other, Akutami let him have a hairstyle makeover under his supervision.
However, this would only be one of the few changes fans are about to see in the film.

New Character Designs
Recently, the franchise drops the first look at Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie’s characters. It shows Maki Zenin, Toge and Panda as first-year students.
The film will be exploring the story of Yuta. Although fans have heard his name several times in the anime series’ first season, no one knows his whole story.
Here, viewers will know how he joins Tokyo’s Jujutsu Tech School a year before Yuji does. Its story of the past will play a crucial role in the narrative of the franchise in general.
Some events that happened then would be a big part of the anime’s second season. As its tales are all linked together, they may eventually play out in the future.
It will also reveal the connection of Yuta to Gojo and other second-year students fans have met in the first season.
It will answer the question of why Yuta is so important in the series.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is set to be out on Dec. 24 in Japan. However, there are no words yet about its international release, though fans are hoping it will also hit theaters abroad.
