Jujutsu Kaisen has debuted an official collaboration with Coca-Cola in a commercial for the new Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie, now making its way through theaters in Japan! The anime adaptation was such a success that it not only exploded sales of Gege Akutami’s original manga series, but the first season was followed with the debut of the first feature film. This new movie takes on the prequel series set before the events of the main story, and fans in Japan have been checking out how the team at Studio MAPPA are bringing this prequel story to life while it’s now in theaters.
Such a movie watching experience is going to need some beverages, so Jujutsu Kaisen 0 collaborated with Coca-Cola for a special new commercial. It sees Yuji Itadori (who unfortunately misses out on the events of the new movie since it takes place a year before he got involved with the Jujutsu Sorcerer world) watching the film while enjoying the beverage before he’s punched by the same training doll he had to overcome before when learning how to harness Cursed Energy.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 dropped in theaters in Japan on December 24th, and reports about its box office performance have touted that it has done pretty well for itself over the holiday. There has yet to be any word on a potential international release for the new movie just yet, but fans are hoping to get that release later this year. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 fleshes out some very important pieces of the past along with dropping some big hints about the future of the series that will become even more clear in a potential second season.
Unfortunately, a second season of Jujutsu Kaisen has yet to be announced either. It might take a while for one to happen considering how busy Studio MAPPA is this year with the likes of Attack on Titan: Final Season Part 2, Chainsaw Man, and more, but it’s also very likely we’ll see the anime again someday considering the success of both that first season and new movie.
What do you think about this special collaboration between Jujutsu Kaisen and Coca-Cola? Are you hoping to see Jujutsu Kaisen 0 for yourself someday? Are you hoping more for a full second season instead? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
