To gain the power he needs to save his friend from a cursed spirit, Yuji Itadori swallows a piece of a demon, only to find himself caught in the midst of a horrific war of the supernatural!
In a world where cursed spirits feed on unsuspecting humans, fragments of the legendary and feared demon Ryomen Sukuna have been lost and scattered about. Should any demon consume Sukuna’s body parts, the power they gain could destroy the world as we know it. Fortunately, there exists a mysterious school of jujutsu sorcerers who exist to protect the precarious existence of the living from the supernatural!
In this new series launch from Akutami (Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical School), Yuji Itadori is sucked into the world of curses when his friends inadvertently become the target of supernatural monsters hell-bent on retrieving a powerful relic that the students recently stumbled upon. Yuji is unconventional in his problem-solving methods, often not thinking twice about leaping into action and using comical amounts of force to achieve simple tasks. Similarly, his curse-fighting companions are also unique, from the self-obsessed and capricious Nobara to the logical but still moody Megumi. This blend makes for a well-balanced, enjoyable story now in its seventh installment.
