Jujutsu Kaisen Beginner’s Guide: Everything you Need to Know
The “big three shonen” are One Piece, Bleach, and Naruto. One of those torches is now passed to Jujutsu Kaisen, an anime set in a fictional Japan where sinister spirits known as Curses rule the streets and are difficult to deceive.
The order of Jujutsu Sorcerers was established to counter these negative manifestations of human emotions. Yuji Itadori is our protagonist. He accidentally becomes Ryomen Suukuna–The King of Curses.
That’s only the beginning. The story of Jujutsu Kaisen becomes more difficult to follow. There are many characters and plot twists in the anime. Here’s a guide to help you get started with the franchise.
Who created Jujutsu Kaisen
Gege Akutami is the author of Jujutsu Kaisen. He also serves as the manga’s artist. George Akutami is the pseudonym of the author. Their gender and real names are not known.
Akutami is the author of Kamishiro Sousa, an action mystery one-shot. Although there isn’t much information about Akutami’s private life, they frequently post on Twitter.
Jujutsu Kansen’s stunning visuals have received a lot of praise. It’s not surprising that MAPPA is responsible for the animation. The same studio is behind classics such as Attack on Titan and Dorohedoro and the forthcoming Chainsaw Man anime.
What’s Jujutsu Kaisen About?
Jujutsu Kaisen is a follower of Yuji itadori. A typical high schooler’s life is changed forever when Fushiguro Mesgumi arrives at his school to track a cursed object.
Cursed objects attract evil spirits to them, so it is best to have them retrieved. The King of Curses’ finger was the object in question. Yuji ate the finger out of desperation in his fight with a cursed spirit. This led to Sukua being reincarnated with Yuji as his vessel.
Gojo Satoro is the strongest sorcerer in the world and arrives just in time to manage the situation. Although Yuji manages to subdue Sukuna’s evil, Jujutsu’s eyes immediately turn towards him. His life’s purpose will forever change when he harbors the ultimate evil.
Who are the main characters in Jujutsu Kaisen’s Jujutsu Kaisen series?
Yuji Itadori, Jujutsu Kaisen’s protagonist, is well-known. Sukuna’s spirit is also in him. This spirit manifests throughout the anime. Although he is a slim man, his physical prowess rivals the best athletes. He is initially confused by the fate he has been dealt. However, he decides to make the protection of the world against curses his goal.
Next up is Gojo satoro. Yuji may be the protagonist, but Gojo is the show’s star. He is tall and has white hair. The anime shows him to be unbeatable. Many spirits are afraid to mention him, but those who underestimate him die. Jujutsu Kaisen’s main attraction is Gojo.
Megumi Furuguro and Nobara Kukisaki are two other major supporting characters. Megumi can be described as a laid-back person. Nobara is a more assertive character. Yuji is joined by Yuji, while Yuji serves as the main trio of Jujutsu Kaisen. Gojo acts as their mentor.
Where can I watch Jujutsu Kaisen?
Jujutsu Kaisen will be found where all other anime are located these days — Crunchyroll. The anime streaming home has changed since Crunchyroll acquired Funimation. Viz Media licensed the home release so you can buy Blu-rays on Amazon.
A prequel film, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, has been released in Japan recently and will debut on Crunchyroll starting in September. Only the first part of Jujutsu Kaisen can be purchased outside Japan. The second part will be available soon. We recommend Crunchyroll as the best option right now.
The highly anticipated sequel season will air on Crunchyroll on 2023. However, that will depend on how fast MAPPA ties up Chainsaw Man.
Where can I read the Jujutsu Kaisen Manga?
Interestingly, Jujutsu Kaisen was originally a loose sequel of AAkutami’s2017 manga, Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School. The prequel, now available as a movie, was renamed Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
The current manga has 193 chapters. The first 176 chapters have been compilated and published in 20 volumes. More will be added soon. You can read a few chapters on Shueisha’s official Manga Plus website or all the chapters at Mangadex.
You can purchase physical volumes at Amazon and Indigo.
Jujutsu Kaisen: The Best Anime to Try
Jujutsu Kaisen, undoubtedly, is an anime that will leave you wanting more. You will be hooked by the captivating story, vivid characters, and breathtaking visuals. Dorohedoro is a similar anime that we recommend. The animation of this anime is also by MAPPA, so iit’stop-notch. It has some great humor and solid characters to back it up.
Demon Slayer is another anime worth watching. Ufotable animated it. This anime is a great example of high-quality anime visuals. It has a perfect combination of action-packed scenes and world-building. Jujutsu KKaisen’sbrutal story is matched by Demon SSlayer’sunique approach to a gritty world.
We recommend that you give Naruto another chance. The characters look a lot like Jujutsu Kaisen in many aspects, particularly regarding aesthetics. Each has rich folklore with a plot that goes deeper than it appears.
