Keep trying! And all of you, please come to the exhibition when it starts!».

Jujutsu Kaisen Synopsis
High school student Yuuji Itadori, who engages in baseless paranormal activities with the Occult Club, spends his days in the club room or in the hospital, where he visits his bedridden grandfather. However, this leisurely lifestyle soon takes a turn for the strange when he unknowingly comes across a cursed object. Triggering a chain of supernatural events, Yuuji suddenly finds himself immersed in the world of curses – terrible beings formed from human evil and negativity – after swallowing said object, which is revealed to be a finger belonging to the demon Sukuna Ryoumen, the “King of Curses”.
Yuuji experiences firsthand the threat these Curses pose to society while discovering his own newfound powers. Introduced to the Tokyo Metropolitan Jujutsu Technical School, he begins to travel a path from which he will not be able to return: that of a Jujutsu sorcerer.
