Jujutsu Kaisen Spoilers

The story revolves around Yuji Itadori, a high school student with extraordinary physical abilities. He could have been a great athlete if he had a modicum of interest in sports. Itadori’s grandfather brought him up. On his deathbed, his grandfather gives him two morsels of wisdom: “always be helpful” and “die surrounded by people.” Later, Itadori combines the two ideas to create a personal motto: everyone has a right to a proper death.

To protect his friends, Itadori consumes a curse called Ryoumen Sukuna, becoming its host. He gradually learns how incredibly powerful Sukuna is. Because of the curse’s inherent evilness, all sorcerers must attempt to free Itadori of Sukuna’s possession. However, Itadori proves himself to be a remarkable host. He fights off Sukuna’s influence and retains control of his body. He begins attending Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College. The sorcerers put his execution plan on hold until he has consumed all cursed objects related to Sukuna.
