The manga is among Shonen Jump’s most popular ongoing series as it has reached a lifetime volume of sales of over 70 million.

The series’ story follows Yuji Itadori, a high school student who swallows a cursed finger and becomes the host of a powerful Curse named Ryomen Sukuna.

This results in him being marked for execution, but he is saved by Satoru Gojo, a professor at the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School.

In exchange for the postponement of his death sentence, Yuji is to train as a Jujutsu Sorcerer under Gojo until he swallows all twenty cursed fingers.

Given the manga and the TV anime’s popularity, the first movie in the franchise entitled Jujutsu Kaisen 0 was released which is based on the prequel manga of the same name. The movie went on to become a big box office hit, both in Japan and in the US.

The anime’s second season is set to release sometime in 2023. While there’s no Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 release date info yet, we might get an announcement this September. The first trailer for the second season might also be revealed during the program.
