Jujutsu Kaisen has been one of Shonen Jump‘s biggest successes, and now it’s finally getting an anime adaptation. Created by Gege Akutami, Jujutsu Kaisen has been running for a couple of years now, and at this point is actually one of Shonen Jump‘s oldest series without a proper anime companion. Here’s a description of the series, courtesy of Crunchyroll:
A boy fights … for “the right death.”
Hardship, regret, shame: the negative feelings that humans feel become Curses that lurk in our everyday lives. The Curses run rampant throughout the world, capable of leading people to terrible misfortune and even death. What’s more, the Curses can only be exorcised by another Curse.
Itadori Yuji is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life. One day, to save a friend who has been attacked by Curses, he eats the finger of the Double-Faced Specter, taking the Curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares one body with the Double-Faced Specter. Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Gojo Satoru, Itadori is admitted to the Tokyo Metropolitan Technical High School of Sorcery, an organization that fights the Curses … and thus begins the heroic tale of a boy who became a Curse to exorcise a Curse, a life from which he could never turn back.
Jujutsu Kaisen comes to Crunchyroll this Fall.
