Jujutsu Kaisen season 1 – how it started
The story begins with Yuji Itadori, an ordinary high school student with remarkable physical abilities and a selfless nature. When his school’s Occult Club uncovers a cursed talisman, Yuji’s life takes a drastic turn. The talisman contains the finger of Ryomen Sukuna, a legendary and immensely powerful curse. In a brave attempt to protect his friends, Yuji consumes the finger, inadvertently becoming the vessel for Sukuna’s curse energy.
This decision throws Yuji into the hidden world of jujutsu, where curses roam and sorcerers fight to protect humanity. Yuji’s extraordinary potential catches the attention of the Jujutsu Technical High School, an institution dedicated to training and deploying jujutsu sorcerers. With his life forever changed, Yuji joins the school. A path that will test his strength, resolve, and the very essence of his humanity starts now.
Under the guidance of his enigmatic and skilled teacher, Satoru Gojo, Yuji dives into jujutsu sorcery. While maintaining the balance between human and cursed realm, he learns the importance of exorcising curses. Alongside his classmates, Megumi Fushiguro, a stoic yet powerful sorcerer, and Nobara Kugisaki, a cheerful and determined fighter, Yuji faces numerous trials and battles against increasingly dangerous curses. Together, they form a formidable team, each bringing their unique abilities and perspectives to the fight against supernatural threats.
As the season progresses, the complexities of the world and its characters unravel. Yuji’s unwavering determination and sense of justice become evident as he navigates the moral gray areas of the jujutsu world. He grapples with the burden of being the host of Sukuna’s curse, constantly at odds with his own existence and the responsibility he carries.
The bonds between the main characters deepen as they face life-threatening challenges, revealing their vulnerabilities, fears, and motivations. Each character is overcoming their past traumas and insecurities to become stronger both individually and as a team. The series highlights the power of friendship, trust, and camaraderie as essential pillars in the fight against darkness.

Here, the focus shifts back to Yuji, Megumi Fushiguro, Nobara Kugisaki, and other beloved characters as they confront the lethal alliance between Cursed Spirits and Curse users.
