For those of you looking to rock the Jujutsu Kaisen style, the UNIQLO UT X Jujutsu Kaisen 0 collection is worth checking out! There’s a whole range of t-shirts inspired by the film. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie is an original story of the JJK universe about love and a curse. Yuta Okkotsu is a high school student obsessed and troubled by the curse of Rika Orimoto – his childhood friend who tragically died in a traffic accident. Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Tokyo Jujutsu High School, wants Yuta to enroll so he can learn cursed techniques and cast out curses.
You can see the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 X UNIQLO UT collection on their dedicated official website.
My top pick is the black t-shirt with the ‘curse’ on it.
