“Yuji Itadori is a high school student with amazing physical abilities, living a normal life,” reads the official synopsis for Jujutsu Kaisen. “But one day, in order to save his schoolmate from a ‘curse,’ he eats a special grade cursed object, ‘Sukuna’s Finger,’ and gets the curse within his soul. Itadori, who now shares his body with the cursed spirit ‘Sukuna,’ transfers to an institution specializing in curses, Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School, to be guided by the most powerful jujutsu sorcerer, Satoru Gojo… A story of a high school student who carries a curse in order to exorcise it. With no way of turning back, his fierce tale begins to unfold.”
