A stunning Jujutsu Kaisen cosplay draws from Maki Zenin’s original design for the prequel to Jujutsu Kaisen 0! Before Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen was selected for full serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, the creator released a short four-chapter pilot series, Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School. This series proved so popular that not only did it eventually lead to the Jujutsu Kaisen we know today, but the limited series was in turn set to be an official prequel, Jujutsu Kaisen 0. This was ported to the next level as the characters we met in that first series appeared in the main series, but we were now older and more experienced.
While fans may have encountered Tokyo’s second years during the events of the main series, Maki, Toge, and Panda were actually first introduced to the franchise as Yuta Okkotsu’s first year classmates during events of Jujutsu Kaisen 0. Each of them is markedly different from the more experienced version of each young wizard we meet after their first year, but they also came with an all-new design that was changed for their official debut in the series. The biggest changes were made to Maki’s look, and artist @taliverse brought this quirky look to life with an awesome Jujutsu Kaisen 0 cosplay on Instagram! Check it out below:
Jujutsu Kaisen is currently making its way to cinemas around the world and has broken numerous box office records to become one of the most successful anime releases of all time. If you’re curious about what to expect from the movie before checking it out for yourself, you can find ComicBook.com’s Jujutsu Kaisen 0 review here. Here’s an excerpt to get you started:
“This is absolutely stunning animation work that surpasses anything seen in TV anime. Each of these sequences is also different in its own way, and are a feast for the eyes and ears.The casts of the Japanese and English dubbed audio (both of which were viewed for the purposes of this review) knock it out of the park in that regard, with Megumi Ogata and Kayleigh McKee serving as the major stars of each cast, respectively. That feels like an elevated experience, and that’s hard to do with a TV series that’s already highly regarded for those aspects. .
