Jujutsu Kaisen (Japanese 呪術廻戦) is a Japanese manga series that was written as well as illustrated by Gege Akutami. The manga has been serialized in the Shueisha magazine named Weekly Shonen Jump since way back in 2018. Its chapters were collected and serialised in nineteen tankobon volumes as known in April 2022.
The plot revolves around a young high-school student named Yuji Itadori, who joins the Jujutsu Kaisen high school, which comprises Jujutsu sorcerers who join together to get rid of the cursed spirits from the world. Yuji, in the way, gets cursed by Ryomen Sukuna, who is the most potent curse. Sukuna uses Yuji’s body as a vessel. Then we see Yuji and the most powerful jujutsu sorcerer Satoru Gojo fighting against Sukuna and other cursed spirits, along with Inumaki, Maki and Panda.
Jujutsu Kaisen is a sequel to Akutami’s Tokyo metropolitan curse technical school. That was serialized in the Shueisha magazine in 2017 from April to July, and then this was retroactively called Jujutsu Kaisen 0 in December 2018.
In October 2020, a 24-episode anime series premiered on MBS in March 2021. As of April 2022, the Jujutsu Kaisen manga had over 65 million copies which are currently in circulation, that includes all the related digital versions and the Jujutsu Kaisen 0, thereby making it one of the best-selling manga series of all time.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Story
So, in Jujutsu Kaisen, every living being emanates energy which is called cursed energy, the source of it is all the negative emotions that a person has that flow throughout the body. Typically, people cannot control this flow, so they keep losing all the cursed energies, which results in the birth of the curses, which are a race of spiritual beings. These beings just have a motto of bringing harm to humanity.
To protect people from them, we have jujutsu sorcerers who can channel the cursed flow very well, and they stabilize it to use it against the harmful cursed spirits. The strongest Jujutsu Sorcerer is Satoru Gojo, who is undefeated.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 Recap
Yuji Itadori is an unusually healthy high school student who lives in Sendai. When his grandfather is on his deathbed, he tells him that he should always help others and that when he dies, he must be surrounded by people who love him a lot. One day his friend at the Occult club somehow managed to set loose an unsealed rotten finger that belonged to the most potent cursed spirit named Ryomen Sukuna. During a fight, in order to protect Fushiguro, Yuji swallowed the finger. Then he is taken to the Jujutsu high school in Tokyo. There he meets Gojo.
They want Yuji to swallow all nine fingers of Sukuna so he can keep their form going out and create havoc in the world. There is a sorcerer, Geto Suguru, who gets very annoyed when he and Gojo cannot save a young girl from an assassin, so he vows to clear the world of non-sorcerers so that the sorcerers will stand by their kind always.
Then, Yuji lives with Gojo and other sorcerers at the Jujutsu high school. Yuji and Megumi also team up with second-year students named Yuta Okkostu and Yuki Tsukumo and Chuso, who are half-human and half-curse. He regularly accompanies other sorcerers on their missions, and they fight against the cursed spirits. And along this journey, he dies and is brought back to life as well, and we also see some scenes with Sukuna as well, which are exhilarating.
