Jujutsu Kaisen Zero PV & Sukuna's History
#JujutsuKaisen #Zero #Theme #LearningHistory #Sukuna
In three more days, the movie Jujutsu Kaisen Zero will premiere in Japan on Dec 24 right before Christmas. It's a shame that it hasn't got any information regarding the release date in other regions yet. Here's the latest promotional video with the theme song "イチズ" by King Gnu. Just by watching the trailer and the PV, I can feel that it's gonna be a good one.
As this movie is the adaption of the prequel book of the main series, we don't see Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara in there, just the 2nd graders. But it's always nice to see that the movie is actually connected to the original storyline (awkwardly looking at MHA's movies).
Well...before this movie's global release date is confirmed, let's chill out and get to know some interesting facts about the protagonist of the main series Ryomen Sukuna.
Ryomen Sukuna is a ghost/demon form deity in Japanese ancient history. Besides appearing in Jujutsu Kaisen, it also showed up in the series "Jigoku Sensei Nube" and the video game "Nioh 2". It is known to have 2 heads (the reason why it's called Ryomen, it means two faces), 4 arms, and 4 legs. But compared to other Yokai (ghost), it has very few carvings or paintings.
Do you know that when Gojo Satoru said that Sukuna was a real person who existed, he wasn't lying?
The oldest record of Sukuna can be traced back to the beginning of the 5th century when the sixteenth Japanese emperor "Emperor Nintoku" was still in his reign. In Nihon Shoki (The Chronicles of Japan), he was considered a thieve who was against the royal orders and had two faces with a grotesque body wielding swords and bows.
However, it is common to be described as a criminal at the time if the government didn't like you or think of you as a threat. According to the local folklore of Hida City, Gifu in Japan, he was a chivalrous hero who subdued the venomous serpent in the mountain, slew a demon (a demon slayer ), and was a pious believer who prayed for the public's good for 37 consecutive days during the war.
Another interesting fact is that when Jujutsu Kaisen started to become popular and trendy, the number of visitors to the temples rose significantly in Japan. So it seemed that the fans are all curious about the reference of this ghost deity.
Now you know the story behind Sukuna, you can talk about it when having a chat with your friends who love this series.
