Jujutsu Kaisen is a supernatural action shounen manga series written and illustrated by Gege Akutami. The series is set in a world where monstrous beings called curses are born from human emotion. These curses are kept in control by special sorcerers called as Jujutsu sorcerers. These fighters can manipulate their own cursed energy in order to fight against the curses.
We follow the life of a young man named Itadori Yuji, as his regular life is turned upside down after he has an encounter with these curses. Due to various circumstances, he ends up swallowing the finger of Ryomen Sukuna, the king of curses. Now Sukuna can take control of Itadori’s body and wreak havoc if he’s not careful.
