The movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will be released worldwide in mid March, so a few of us are interested in reading the manga beforehand (plus, it won’t hurt to learn the history/prequel for the upcoming Season 2 in 2023!).
We’ll read this as part of the Miscellaneous Book Club.
Based on what we’ve read so far, this manga could be considered a Beginner level reading. Check out the Beginner Book Club to check other typical beginner-level books there.
Want to take part? Just buy the book and join in the discussion.
You can check out the free ebook sample, and remember that as fellow readers we’re here to help each other and the vocab sheet will be here to help you out.
Poll is up. Thanks for the suggestion @Redglare
Maybe I should’ve put up the poll from the beginning, but better late than never …
This is a super short notice to the reading schedule, but hopefully the discussion and vocab sheet would help anyone interested in reading even if they can’t make the schedule.
For sure, come join us @NeecyWizzle !
Some of us are part of another WK beginner book club, Haikyuu!, so I’d say don’t worry. We’ll help out each other, and more important is we’ll make it fun
Yeah, I read the manga and this one after I watched the anime. Although that was in English, I have not checked how difficult it is in Japanese. I really love how even the kanji of the title feels like it’s cursed and warped.
It’s also one of my favorite titles I’m following at the moment, which is pretty high praise coming from me. This prequel series definitely adds on it, although some parts are a bit rougher in art than the main series.
I agree!! It’s really dynamic and special and odd, and I love it
I definitely agree with that statement- I’m very fond of JJK’s pacing and storyline (it’s my current favorite) so reading 0 was a must for me and I’m glad I did! It’s a bonus and I can’t wait to see the movie. Gege really developed a lot art-wise, from 0 to regular Jujutsu Kaisen
I recently read the first 8 or so volumes of JJK while they were free on bookwalker and wouldn’t say they are all that different in difficulty from other shonen jump series! Maybe a bit more vocab that ハイキュー but otherwise similar.
Tempted to read and take part in the thread, though I’m also very far behind on all bookclubs I am in including ハイキュー so who knows haha.

@sycamore - Good to see you here! Thanks for the ebook promo info, I will check it out if it’s still on. Ebook Japan had a promo for this volume not too long ago, maybe it’s still on? Hope to see you sometime in the read aloud :
I got a vocab question about the usage:
I’m wondering why she’s using 場 in the first sentence and 所 in the second one as they’re both relating to their school here.
I think 場 is used when talking about a physical place -in this case, the school-, whereas 所 can be used more widely when talking about an instance or a situation, and it’s often used as part of a grammar point (dropping the kanji, as ところ). They’re pretty much interchangeable here, it’s just a small nuance that makes 所 fit better in the second part of the sentence, I think!
