Jujutsu Kaisen Story
Jujutsu Kaisen, created by Gege Akutami, takes place in a supernatural world full of monsters and curses.
Within Jujutsu Kaisen, everything living creature gives off “cursed energy.” This energy eventually forms curses and monsters that wreak havoc on society.
Only Jujutsu Sorcerers can harness the energy within their bodies and use it to fight monsters.
The protagonist, Yuji Itadori, is a uniquely strong teenager who joins an occult club at his high school.
One day, the club accidentally unleashes a forbidden talisman that attracts powerful curses to the school.
Trying to protect his friends, Yuji swallows the talisman. But the action has severe side effects: he now hosts a powerful curse named Ryomen Sukuna.
Ryomen is extremely evil, but Yuji’s strength allows him to resist control, and he is kept alive by his mentor Satoru Gojo.
In order to save Yuji’s life, Satoru convinces his superiors to train Yuji to become a Jujutsu Sorcerer. Now, Yuji has to fight for his life – and it’s against himself.
The manga has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump (since March 2018) and has had critical and commercial success worldwide.
Jujutsu Kaisen has over 20 volumes and over 70 million copies sold, including various spin-offs. The prequel to the manga, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, was released in 2017, predating the Jujutsu Kaisen series.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 was retroactively titled after Jujutsu Kaisen and originally published as Tokyo Metropolitian Curse Technical School. The film adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is the highest-grossing Japanese movie of 2021.
The anime series is from studio MAPPA and is directed by Sunghoo Park, director of The God of High School. The series’ action sequences were particularly critically acclaimed.
Jujutsu Kaisen even received a tie-in with the popular mobile video game Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, shortened to PUBG. The collaboration featured playable characters in-game.
