The manga JUJUTSU KAISEN may be summed up as follows:
Yuuji is a genius on the field of play! Except that he has no interest in taking part in extracurricular activities. He takes the choice to live alone after joining the occult research group, but when the new fragrance is presented at school, everything is flipped upside down.
The Jujutsu Kaisen () manga series was created by Gege Akutami and was first released in Japan. It has been released in Weekly Shnen Jump by Shueisha, a young adult manga magazine, chapter by chapter since March 2018. Its chapters will have been gathered and released in a total of 21 tankbon volumes by December 2022. The main character of this book is a high school student named Yuji Itadori. In order to save the world from the powerful curse known as Ryomen Sukuna, of which Yuji becomes the host, he is enlisted by a mysterious gang of Jujutsu Sorcerers. Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School by Akutami was first serialized in Shueisha’s Jump GIGA from April to July 2017 before being collected in a tankbon volume that was eventually released in December 2018 under the retroactive title Jujutsu Kaisen 0. A continuation of the series is Jujutsu Kaisen. It was made by Akutami.
Since December 2019, Jujutsu Kaisen has been available in print thanks to Viz Media, which has the rights to publish the manga in North America’s English language. Shueisha makes the series accessible in English for reading on the Manga Plus website. One of Ballad Kitaguni’s novels was published in both May 2019 and January 2020. Kitaguni is the author of both books. The 24-episode anime television adaptation, which was produced by MAPPA and aired on MBS from October 2020 to March 2021, has 24 episodes. Crunchyroll has granted permission for the anime to be streamed outside of Asia, and the first episode of the English dub will debut in November 2020. In April 2021, the anime’s original soundtrack became a retail item. The second season of the program is expected to premiere in July 2023.
The Jujutsu Kaisen manga has more than 70 million copies in print as of August 2022, making it one of the manga series with the most total copies sold. Even though this figure excludes companion books, digital editions, and Jujutsu Kaisen 0, it still ranks among the most popular manga series ever.
Jujutsu Kaisen’s teachings claim that all living things emit a kind of energy known as Cursed Energy (, Juryoku). It is believed that the negative emotions that easily flow through the body are where this energy comes from. Most individuals find it challenging, if not impossible, to control the flow in their bodies. This causes them to continually lose Cursed Energy, which causes the creation of Curses (Japanese: Noroi), a race of spiritual beings whose primary objective is to harm humanity. These disasters are portrayed as terrifying creatures with malicious motives.
Jujutsu Sorcerers, also known as “Cursed Technique Masters” or “Shamans,” are
those who have the ability to regulate the flow of Cursed Energy inside their
bodies. They can pick how they want to use Cursed Energy thanks to this, and they
can also control how much of it is released. High-ranking Curses and Sorcerers
may harness this energy and use it to perform Cursed Techniques (Jujutsushiki),
which are often exclusive to the individual or their family. It is possible to use the
energy itself to carry out these procedures. A more complex version of the Cursed
Method is the Domain Expansion (, Ryuki Tenkai) technique. Practitioners may
create a pocket dimension with a customizable size with this approach. Once
within the domain, each of their attacks will instantly join with one another and become stronger.
