The feature may not have opened with songs like Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Mugen Train, but it did draw a sizable audience. After all, the anime has been quiet since the first season ended. Jujutsu Kaisen Movie annoncuement kept fans on edge. Millions of people are still unable to see the film. While Jujutsu Kaisen Manga continues and is growing strong.
This in turn contributed to the Jujutsu Kaisen Manga Sales. Which is currently no 1. bestselling manga in Japan. The manga had over 60 million copies in circulation as of December 2023.

On December 24, the Japanese premiere of the Jujutsu Kaisen movie 0 took place. In Japan, it was the second-highest-grossing picture on opening weekend (Of course, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train is the 1st). In its first three days, the anime picture grossed roughly 2.7 billion yen ($23.5 million).
