In a live-action fan adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen, the river battle sequence between Maki Zenin and Kasumi Miwa has been recreated from season 1.
The fight sequence from Jujutsu Kaisen is rethought in a live-action fan movie from season 1 of the anime series. Produced by the Japanese studio known as MAPPA, the anime follows the journey of a high school student named Yuji Itadori as he joins Tokyo Jujutsu High School of Sorcery after the demon Ryomen Sukuna invades inside the protagonist’s body. Despite Itadori being the main character, one of the beloved fan-favorite animated scenes originates between Maki Zenin and Kasumi Miwa.
Known for their live-action fan productions, RE: Anime shares their latest film project and recreates the iconic fight sequence between Maki and Miwa from season 1 of Jujutsu Kaisen. Since Maki’s primary advantage is her skills in weapons in anime, her fight is the main focus in the fight scenes as she wears a long bar arm. The live-action adaptation follows and modifies the difficult battle choreography in the respective animation between Maki and Miwa in an epic fight in the river, while still carrying the faceplate stunt and battle themes from the original series.

The phenomenal live-action map of Jujutsu Kaisen demonstrates the film’s ability to adapt animated series to the big screen. The only notable difference in the live-action film compared to her animated counterpart was Miwa’s personality change and tone change. Overall, the series’ fan film production proves how well-animated fight scenes can be translated into live-action scenes. In the past, Netflix has made live-action anime adaptations for the subscription platform, such as Obituary and Cowboy Bepop, but failed to capture the audience’s grip through their creative processes.
With the titular success of the anime series, Jujutsu Kaisen, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 made its debut as the first prequel in feature film length for the popular anime series. The film earned the title as the second largest premiere opening of any film in Japan. Although official information has not been released to theaters in the West, fans are expecting a global cinema premiere due to the economic prosperity the film brought to Japan.
