What is ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ about?

The series follows a teenager, Yuji Itadori, who lives with his grandfather in Sendai. Yuji is a freakish teenage boy with a strong dislike of sport despite being talented. He decides to join another club, Occult Research Club, to avoid indulging in athletics.

In his school, Yuji, a genius in the field, has no interest in engaging with the rest of the sports students. However, things take another twist when a spirit attacks the school, and his grandfather is on the deathbed. Yuji promises his grandfather to die an honorable death, where family and friends surround him.

Later, Yuji meets a sorcerer, Megumi Fushiguro, who is on a mission to retrieve a possessed object. Yuji’s friends come across the cursed item; when they open it, its cursed spirits dominate the school. Megumi and Yuji try to capture and destroy the ghosts, but they are overwhelming for them. Yuji swallows one of the cursed objects and, as a result, becomes cursed with the Sukuna curse.

Despite having the demon possession, Yuji manages to retain his wonderful personality. Satoru Gojo advises him to attend Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical College to learn how to control the demon spirit.
