Jujutsu Kaisen - Plot/Storyline

The story of Jujutsu Kaisen revolves around Itadori Yuji who is known for his unnatural powers around the whole high school. He lives in the Sendai city of Japan with his Grandfather. Itadori always runs from the athletic club of his high school because he excels in all physical activities. To get rid of all the attention, he joins the Occult Research Club, where he can just chill out.

Every day, Itadori leaves his school at 5:00 pm and straight on goes to meet his grandpa. One day, while Itadori’s grandpa is on the verge of death, he gives Itadori a timeless and wonderful message.

“Always Help People”

“Die Surrounded by People”

These two messages get into Itadori’s subconscious, motivating him to always help people. After leaving the hospital, he encounters Megumi Fushiguro, who was trying to find Itadori as Itadori had contact with a mysterious cursed object. The cursed Talisman that Itadori made contact with wasn’t just for the show!

After Itadori’s friends at school unfold that talisman, they find a decaying finger that eventually attracted all the curses at his school. In other words, Curses are a race of spirits that are formed by the negative emotions of humans. After Megumi and Itadori fail to fight the cursed spirit at school, Itadori decides to eat the finger. As a result, he becomes a host to Sakuna who was once an undisputed King of Curses.

Everyone would go on and try to exorcise Itadori. However, his new teacher, Gojo Satoru was surprised by Itadori’s control over his body. To keep Sakuna and Itadori in check, Gojo invited them to join the Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College. His death sentence was extended until he will eat all of the Sakuna’s fingers so that they can kill Sakuna once and for all.
