  • Jujutsu Kaisen Attraction to Open at Universal Studios Japan for a Limited Time

    23.June.2022 | ANIME&GAME / SPOT

    Universal Studios Japan has announced that it will be opening a selection of Jujutsu Kaisen attractions for a limited time starting September 16, 2022. The anime series has been a global smash hit since it premiered. 

     

    The original Jujutsu Kaisen manga series has sold over 65 million copies worldwide, and the recent Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film grossed over ¥13.7 billion at the domestic box office.

     

    Attractions will focus on the theme of “curses,” though there are no details as of yet as to what they will be or involve. Jujutsu Kaisen follows the story of Yuji Itadori, who becomes the host of a powerful curse named Ryomen Sukuna in order to protect his friends. Yuji then joins the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School to train and become a sorcerer so that he can avoid an execution, as well as to help others fight against Cursed Spirits. Guests will be able to immerse themselves in the series’ world, and we’re excited to find out more details about what attractions will be coming to USJ this fall.

A special menu featuring tasty treats inspired by the series will be available alongside unique merchandise only available on-site. 

     

    This summer’s limited menu and goods lineup are each inspired by a music festival. The event itself will draw inspiration from the film One Piece Film Red, scheduled to release on August 6, 2022.

This tome includes details and images from each of the past One Piece Premier Shows and is a must-have for any fan. It also includes a message from the original series author Eiichiro Oda. 

    One ‘music festival’ themed item is the Festival Towel. Playing a major role in the 2022 version of the One Piece Premier Show, the item is decorated with a limited edition 15th-anniversary design. Guests can also grab a collectible bracelet and salted candy in a unique soda can-inspired package. Of course, it wouldn’t be a One Piece event without some straw hats for sale!

    This year’s menu includes everything from Nami’s Orange Frappe to Frankie’s Super American Hot Dog. Each of these tasty dishes will be perfect for posting on social media! Next to the Lost World Restaurant, guests can enjoy some additional goodies from the One Piece Food Cart including Sanji’s Pork Ribs and Sanji’s Peach and Lemon Frozen Smoothie, perfect for beating the heat.
