About Jujutsu Kaisen
Jujutsu Kaisen is a shounen anime series revolving around sorcerers and sorcery techniques. Negative emotions of people turn into grotesque beings called ‘cursed spirits’. While some are simple, some can grow excessively dangerous. Special guardians called sorcerers have the ability to see and exorcise these cursed spirits. Young teenagers attend Jujutsu High, where they train and grow stronger to become capable sorcerers.
Itadori Yuji is an exceptionally strong and athletic teenager but has no interest in joining a sports club. He instead stays hooked on to the occult club to slack off. His grandfather, on his death bed, tells Itadori to live a life so he can die as he wants and is surrounded by people. Back in the occult club, they come across a special grade curse object that unleashes several harmful curses. To save his friends, he ends up eating the cursed object and gets possessed by the strongest cursed spirit in the world, Ryomen Sukuna.
However, Itadori can gain control over it and decides to use his power to save people and live how his grandfather said.
