Background: Jujutsu Kaisen is a modern Japanese manga and anime series written and illustrated by Gege Akutami. The narrative revolves around Yuji Itadori, a high school student with exceptional physical abilities, who becomes entangled in the world of Jujutsu Sorcerers when he encounters a cursed object – a rotting finger that attracts Cursed Spirits. As he meets other sorcerers and encounters more curses, he embarks on a quest to find and consume all of the cursed fingers in order to eliminate the curses plaguing the world.

Main Characters:

  1. Yuji Itadori – A high school student who becomes a Jujutsu Sorcerer after consuming a cursed object. He possesses extraordinary physical prowess and a strong sense of justice.
  2. Megumi Fushiguro – A stoic Jujutsu Sorcerer who initially tries to retrieve the cursed object from Yuji, but later becomes his ally and friend.
  3. Nobara Kugisaki – A fearless and outspoken Jujutsu Sorcerer who fights alongside Yuji and Megumi, bringing a blend of strength and femininity to the team.
  4. Satoru Gojo – A highly powerful and somewhat nonchalant Jujutsu Sorcerer who serves as a mentor and teacher to Yuji and his friends.
  5. Ryomen Sukuna – A malevolent Cursed Spirit, also known as Ryomen Sukuna, who is partially resurrected within Yuji after he consumes the cursed object.

Setting: Set in a contemporary Tokyo and other parts of Japan, the world of Jujutsu Kaisen intertwines the ordinary life with the occult and supernatural, where Cursed Spirits spawned from human negativity pose a constant threat to humanity.

Major Themes:

  • Life and Death: The series explores deep themes of life, death, and what lies in between, often presenting characters with moral dilemmas surrounding these concepts.
