About Jujutsu Kaisen

Jujutsu Kaisen follows the story of Yuji Itadori, a high school student with impressive natural talent. One day, Yuji’s friends got into trouble after unwrapping a talisman that attracts curses. A sorcerer named Megumi Fushiguro tried to help Yuji fighting the curses but he’s being overpowered. Without knowing the consequences, Yuji then devours the finger to protect his friends and Megumi. The finger that Yuji devoured is one of Sukuna’s fingers. Ryomen Sukuna is known as the King of Curses and his power allowed him to overtake Yuji’s body. However, Yuji can still control his body after eating Sukuna’s curses. Satoru Gojo decides to bring Yuji to the Tokyo Jujutsu High School and suggests to his superior to delay the death of Yuji until he already devoured all of Sukuna’s curses, giving them a chance to kill Ryomen Sukuna at once.

Jujutsu Kaisen was written by Gege Akutami. Since Shueisha serialized the manga series in 2018, Jujutsu Kaisen already garners 16 volumes. In October 2020, MAPPA studio released the anime adaptation of the manga series. The first season of Jujutsu Kaisen has a total of 24 episodes. The first anime film for Jujutsu Kaisen is set to premiere this Winter 2021.
