Jujutsu No Kaisen is a banger. I think this anime can easily be in my top 5 favourite animes. With the comedy, action and mystery, there’s no telling where this series will take you….unless you read the manga lol. This is by no means a foreshadowing of who will die; instead, I will be giving spoilers.
Jujutsu no Kaisen is a world of curses. Evil spirits and Jujutsu sorcerers live in the shadow of society with somewhat crazy repression. Every one of them is crazy in one way or another and it’s very hard to find an average person. It’s extremes craziness, goofiness, coolest or straight-up dumb lol. You’ve got your main gang, Itadori Yuji, Megumi Fushiguro, Nobara Kugisaki and Gojo Satoru as the head teacher.
Curses are pretty much the collective negative energy that overflows from society. Curse spirits are the manifestation of those negative energy and are related to the increased deaths over certain periods of the year. Jujutsu sorcerers are people who are able to control their own curse energy, make it flow within their body and create specialized techniques that turn into kick-ass actions that we see in the anime.
The whole story revolves around a boy called Itadori Yuji who was your typical high school student. He was in the occult club and was dared to retrieve a cursed item as part of a dare. This turned out to be one of Sukuna’s fingers, which was the strongest curse to ever live. To make things more interesting, other curses are attracted to Sukuna’s fingers as well so they start attacking in order to steal it.
Our boy Itadori is a little on the dumb side and the only option to save his new friend Megumi was to well….eat the finger? lol He then gains a little power boost from the manifestation process where Sukuna takes over his body. Little to our surprise our national husband, Gojo sensei shows up to save the day. Having acknowledged that Itadori has eaten one world’s most cursed items, he takes Yuji back to Jujutsu high for some questioning.
As the story developed we see more curses and characters come into the picture and things get a little more interesting. Ultimately us viewers developed a bond with our main characters so the creators love to tug our little heart strings. They tried killing off Itadori and Megumi multiple times at the start of the season but because of plot armour, that shit wasn’t allowed to happen lol.
Fast forward to the Shibuya Arc which will be the most intense storyline of this whole anime in my opinion, because everyone was pushed to their limits. Some sad losses were to Nobara who lost half of her face and Todo losing an arm but the saddest part of all was that our beloved Nanami Sensei is dead. Why would you kill of such a good character 😦
