In a similar vein to what we got with the first setting image of the main protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen 0, we got our first look at some setting images for Maki Zenin, Togi Inumaki, and Panda, all characters that appear in the upcoming film.
The anime staff has created the concept visuals of Maki Zenin, Togi Inumaki, and Panda in their first year reflecting the wishes of the original author, Gege Akutami. In the TV anime series, the three appeared as reliable second-year students at the Tokyo Metropolitan College of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, with Jujutsu Kaisen 0 taking place one year before the anime series, they make their appearance as first-year students and classmates of Yuta Okkotsu.
The following has also been shared about the characters:
- Maki Zenin: She was born into a family of elite sorcerers, but instead of possessing spell power and being unable to see curses, she has mastered many spell tools and has high physical abilities.
- Togi Inumaki: He is a descendant of a spell caster who uses his words as a weapon of curse, and usually speaks only with the ingredients of his rice balls to avoid cursing people unintentionally.
- Panda: He may look like just a panda, but he speaks human, takes good care of people, and has a great sense of fighting. He is a mutant spell caster created by Michi Yagamasa, the president of the Tokyo Metropolitan College of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
With Jujutsu Kaisen 0 set to hit Japanese theaters on 24 December 2021, I think we’re going to be getting quite a few more setting images like this. There is no better way to flesh out the characters and get a better idea of what to expect from the film.
