Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 – Recap


Yuji Itadori, a member of his school’s Occult Club, comes across a powerful curse object, a rotting finger of Ryomen Sukuna. His friends are attacked by other curses seeking the finger’s powers, and in a selfless act, Yuji swallows the finger to protect them. He merges with Sukuna and becomes the vessel for the curse. 

Gojo Satoru from Jujutsu High, a school for sorcerers, takes him as his understudy and teaches Yuji everything about curses and the threat they pose to humanity. He teams up with Megumi Fushiguro and Nobara Kugisaki and the trio goes on missions to defeat the curses.

As Yuji encounters more curses, he learns more of Sukuna’s powers. Yuji even has a contract with Sukuna, which grants the curse full control over his body for a minute. This contract came in exchange for Sukuna resurrecting Yuji. 

As the series progresses, Yuji learns how to use Sukuna’s powers and become stronger. They take part in an Exchange Event with Kyoto Jujutsu High School and participate in battles with students from Kyoto High.
