Universal Studios Japan Gets ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ Collab

Universal Studios Japan is no stranger to anime collaborations, and the next one continues to be a show stealer. The theme park is expected to offer limited-time attractions based on Jujustsu Kaisen departure September 16, 2022with a focus on “curses” (via Famitsu).

While no other details were announced, previous links seem to hint at a themed roller coaster that includes a 3D ride, merchandise, and food. 3D rides, unlike conventional roller coasters, work more like a simulator (think Transformers ride at Universal Studios Singapore) that will move and shake according to the action happening on screen.

More information on other rides and events should arrive closer to the date, but it looks like the 3D ride will involve an immersive experience with hyper-realistic battles between Jujutsu wizards and cursed spirits.

The collaboration between Universal Studios Japan and Jujutsu Kaisen comes as no surprise, given the huge success of Jujutsu Kaisen 0 in Japan. The previous film grossed a total of 13.5 billion yen to become the highest-grossing film at the Japanese box office from 2021, managing to hit Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.0 Three times upon a time of the throne. The anime series, meanwhile, has rapidly gained popularity over its 24-episode run, receiving two Uniqlo UT collections in Singapore and an upcoming second season, which is set to release next year.

Adapted from the manga of the same name, Jujustsu Kaisen follows the story of Itadori Yuji as he joins a secret organization of Jujutsu wizards in order to kill a powerful curse named Ryomen Sukuna, which Yuji becomes the host. He then joins Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School to train and become a sorcerer in order to avoid execution, as well as help others against cursed spirits.
