From The Crunchyroll Press Release
Jujutsu Kaisen is a dark fantasy, horror series that follows the life of teenager Yuji Itadori who finds himself entangled in an epic battle between sorcerers and powerful curses, even becoming possessed himself! The official show synopsis can be found here:
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.
MAPPA, the powerhouse animation studio, will animate the series with Sunghoo Park leading the show’s direction. MAPPA and Park recently teamed up for Crunchyroll Original series “The God of High School” so fans are in for an otherworldly treat once the show premieres only on Crunchyroll this fall.
Shueisha publishes Jujutsu Kaisen in Japan if you want to read the Manga. VIZ Media publishes it in the United States. To learn more about the digital platform and to subscribe visit www.crunchyroll.com. Premieres October 2!
