It is a real thrill to see images of Gojo, Okkotsu , Itadori, and other key characters racing along the train tracks!

The "Theatrical version Jujutsu Kaisen 0" movie is proving a huge hit! The production marks the first time that "Jujutsu Kaisen," a hugely popular manga and anime series, has been released as a feature length film. JR Kyushu has developed a number of campaigns in collaboration with "Jujutsu Kaisen" to commemorate the release of the movie.

One of the main projects the two parties have collaborated on involves the exterior of JR Kyushu trains. A number of vehicles currently in operation all over Kyushu have been decorated with key characters from the "Jujutsu Kaisen" series. We checked the timetable at Hakata Station in order to find out when some of these awesome vehicles were due to arrive and depart the local area!

"Jujutsu Kaisen" is a dark fantasy manga that was created by manga artist Akutami Gege. The work tells the story of Jujutsu sorcerers who use their powers to battle against noroi (cursed spirits), which were born out of human beings' negative emotions. The new movie, now showing in Japanese cinemas, is based on "Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Tokyo Toritsu Jujutsu Koto Senmon Gakko (lit.: Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College)," a prequel to "Jujutsu Kaisen."

The decorations featured on the limited express KAMOME (885 series) depict characters from the TV anime "Jujutsu Kaisen."

Characters from the TV anime "Jujutsu Kaisen" are featured on the limited express trains alongside well-known phrases from the show. You will be able to find the artwork on the side of limited express "KAMOME" (885 series / running between Hakata and Nagasaki) and limited express "SONIC" (885 series / running between Hakata, Nakatsu-Oita, and Saiki) trains. At the same time, characters from the "Theatrical version Jujutsu Kaisen 0" appear on a limited express SONIC (883 series / running between Hakata and Oita) train!

JR Kyushu×Be sure to keep an eye out for the words and phrases that appear on the trains. Some of the text is specific to an individual character in the story. For example, Goto's famous line "Daijoubu Boku Saikyo dakara (lit.: Don't worry, I'm the strongest)" is featured in one of the designs.
