Ju Jutsu Kaisenis based on a manga by Gege Akutami that is currently being serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. MAPPA also animated the first season of the TV anime adaptation. The plot follows Yuji Itadori, who accidentally becomes the vessel of one of the most dangerous curses of all time – Sukuna. He soon realizes that there are people fighting the curses and that they want to kill him to minimize the danger to society. However, he meets Satoru Gojo, one of the most powerful exorcists of modern times. Gojo offers him a way out by letting him study at the Tokyo Curse Technical College, where he will learn how to control his (and Sukuna’s) powers and be useful to the exorcists known as ju-jutsu wizards. But something much more sinister is looming, and Yuuji’s school days may be cut short…
