The story of Jujutsu Kaisen takes place in a world where cursed spirits feed on unsuspecting humans and fragments of the legendary and feared demon Ryomen Sukuna are lost and scattered.
Should a curse consume parts of Sukuna’s body, the power they gain could destroy the world as we know it. Fortunately, there is a mysterious school of jujutsu sorcerers who exist to protect the precarious existence of the living from the supernatural!
