It is one of the very famous series in the anime as well as the manga world. This supernatural- action series caught the eye of all the anime lovers within the priemere of just a few episodes. It is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Gege Akutami in 2018.
Jujutsu Kaisen: Synopsis
The hype behind Jujutsu Kaisen is basically because of the content and great aesthetic of the manga. This story tells about a group of sorcerers also known as “shamans” who are able to use a power known as “cursed energy”. This energy comes from the negative emotions and feelings of the human beings. The cursed energy can aslo manifests itself into cursed spirits. And the only desire of these spirits is to bring harm to humanity.
The sorcerers harness this cursed energy to do anything from enhancing their power and speed allowing them to walk on water. But often the cursed enery is used to fuel shaman’s techniques. Now this is a story about Yuji Itadori, a high school student who swallows a rotting finger that belonged to a powerful Curse, Sakuna and he subsequently becomes possessed. Before killing him by exorcism, Jujutsu sorcerers task him with finding and consuming the Curse’s remaining fingers.
