Jujutsu Kaisen is a frightful supernatural story that revolves around a normal high school boy named Yuuji Itadori. He lives in Sendai with his grandfather and has an immense talent for sports. But, he chooses to join an Occult club in his college as he wants to have fun and hang out with his seniors at college, and another reason for joining this research group is that he is able to get off school early and can meet his grandfather.


Being in the Occult group he discovers that its members are actual sorcerers and can manipulate the energy between beings for their own use. They came across the finger of a demonic figure, Ryomen Sukuna, which is a real cursed object. Considering his grandfather’s advice to “always help people”, he swallows the finger and becomes the host of Sukuna. Yuuji discovers that he is able to control the power within himself. He joins the Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College to consumes all of Sukuna’s fingers, which will enable a full exorcism to take place that will free him.
