This is a story of a boy who swallows the finger of a demon and becomes cursed himself.
Yuji Itadori is an unnaturally fit high school student living in Sendai with his grandfather. He regularly avoids the track team due to the time commitment required for it. Instead, he chooses to join the Occult Research Club; due to the freedom it allows him in attending, which means he can visit his dying grandfather in the hospital every day. After his death on his deathbed, his grandfather instills two powerful messages within Yuji: “always help people” and “die surrounded by people”. After his grandfather’s death, Yuji interprets these messages as one statement: everyone deserves “a proper death”
He is then confronted by Megumi Fushiguro, who is a sorcerer, who can control curse-animals called “shikigami” who informs him of a high-grade cursed charm talisman at his school.
He hears a couple of cursed charm – the finger of Sukuna, a demon – and its being targeted by alternative cursed beings. Yuji eat the finger to shield his friends, and finally ends up turning into Sukuna’s host.
However, Yuji discovers that he has genetic magic and is in a position to regulate this power while not interference from Sukuna. He joins the Yedo Metropolitan Magic Technical faculty, to consumes all of Sukuna’s fingers, which is able to alter a full dispossession to require place that may free him.
I have watched a lot of animes but Jujutsu Kaisen had different impact on me. It has interesting story and characters. Animation is great. There are great action sequences with good music. Overall, it’s worth watching.
