Oki-doki, are you guys ready? Let’s go over Episode 1 to 13 first!
Fearsome Womb Arc
Episode 1: Ryoumen Sukuna ~ Episode 8: Boring
The story is set in Sendai city, Miyagi Prefecture in 2018. The story starts off when the Special-Grade Cursed Object, Ryoumen Sukuna’s finger is found out to be missing!
To fulfill his grandfather’s last massage to Itadori (the main protagonist) before he passes away, saying ‘You’re strong. Save others,’ Itadori tries to save Fushiguro by trying to swallow the finger of Ryoumen Sukuna. While Itadori is spending his normal high school life, he now steps into the sorcerer’s world, living with Ryoumen Sukuna that lies in him, involved with the curses invisible to normal people.
The story is now set in Tokyo. Itadori and Fushiguro’s classroom teacher, Gojo is now taking them out to pick up another classmate, Kugisaki.
As soon as they meet her up, their first mission starts. While Fushiguro and Gojo, who have been working as sorcerers, wait outside of the building, Kugisaki and Itadori alone go into the building to exorcise the curses.
They have made it for the first mission and now Itadori, Kugisaki and Fushiguro have become the sorcerer buddies. Then another mission comes along to them.
Now the three sorcerers fight against the Special-Grade Curse, which shows up in the Juvenile Detention Center. However, it’s so powerful that Itadori is trying to save the other two by replacing himself with Ryoumen Sukuna.
Itadori, making sure that Fushiguro and Kugisaki have run away from there, replaces himself with Ryoumen Sukuna. Ryoumen Sukuna easily beats up the Special-Grade Curse. However the problem starts here.
Itadori’s body is now completely controlled by Ryoumen Sukuna. Fushiguro is trying to fight against Ryoumen Sukuna to save Itadori but…… The battle has ended when Itadori kills himself.
Fushiguro and Kugisaki, now back to school (Metropolitan Curse Technical College), have decided to be stronger after they have learned from their loss of Itadori. They start to train themselves along with Maki, Inumaki and Panda (2nd year-students) toward the upcoming Kyoto Sister-School Goodwill Event Team Battle. While training, they will face many difficulties such as being attacked by Toudou, who goes to Kyoto Prefectural Jujutsu High School and Mai, who is a twin sister of Maki.

Meanwhile, Itadori, who were thought to be dead from the previous battle, has barely survived by Ryoumen Sukuna’s speculation. Gojo assumes that the top executives of school, who don’t like Itadori, might have purposely brought him to the site, where the Special-Grade Curse shows up. Gojo now hides Itadori, having him train to become stronger.
Itadori not only sees Gojo, who calls himself ‘the strongest sorcerer’ blow his killer curse technique, Domain Expansion, but also learns sorcery. Gojo has decided to pair up him and Nanami, who is also alumni of Jujutsu High for the next mission.

Young Fish and Reverse Punishment Arc
Episode 9: Young Fish and Reverse Punishment ~ Episode 13: Tomorrow
Itadori and Nanami head for the movie theater, where a victim from the Curse Spirit is found. Treating Itadori strictly, Nanami teaches him how to fight in the mission. When they follow the residue of the Curse Spirit’s power, they are attacked by something like the Curse Spirit, when Nanami notices something weird. Nanami tells Itadori to beat it up and makes a phone call to Ieiri, who is a doctor at Jujutsu High.
According to Ieiri’s search, they were not attacked by the Curse Spirit but by a human who is transfigured by some kind of the curse power. Nanami, figuring out that the situation is much more serious than he thought, has decided to have him and Itadori split up into two. While Nanami investigates the mastermind who transfigured the human, Itadori meets up a high school boy, Yoshino Junpei, who was in the site.
Nanami, who found out the hideout of the mastermind, goes inside and fights against Mahito, which is a human-shape Curse Spirit. Mahito is able to reshape souls by touching the body. Nanami still fights, trying to be calm, knowing that Mahito is fighting with the transfigured human. Figuring out that Nanami cannot directly defeat him, he takes his chance, trying to exorcise by destroying the wall of sewer of his hideout and putting the debris into the curse power. However, it ends up failing it.
Meanwhile, Itadori is getting closer to Junpei. At first, Junpei deeply resents his classmates who have bullied him or his classroom teacher who has never tried to help him, however, he gradually changes the way of thinking as he gets closer to Itadori.
Yoshino Junpei / Itadori Yuji
But then, the thing completely changes. Junpei’s mother is murdered by the Curse Spirit drawn by Ryoumen Sukuna’s finger, which has been brought to Junpei’s house by an antagonist, Geto Suguru. Junpei assumes that she was killed by his classmates who have bullied him and heads for school, wearing her clothes to retaliate.
Itadori hurriedly chases Junpei to stop him. Itadori, who heard what’s going on from Junpei, suggests that he should transfer to Jujutsu High so he can find the mastermind that killed his mother, training the curse…… Then Mahito, who has been chasing them, turns Junpei into a transfigured human. As soon as Mahito shows him to Itadori, he dies.
Itadori, seeing Mahito kill his friend right in front of him, gets mad and attacks him. Mahito, seeing him try to attack, is again thinking of replacing himself with Ryoumen Sukuna. Mahito has the transfigured human attack Itadori, while trying to kill Nanami, who just arrives there, in front of Itadori.
It looks like Mahito has completely defeated Nanami, using Domain Expansion. However, he is interfered by Itadori, who’s gone into the domain, attacking him. The situation being reversed, Mahito runs away. Nanami tries to chase him with Itadori, when Itadori passes out, ending up leaving the battle.
A few days later. Through the series of the battle, Itadori has lost how to pursue ‘proper’ death. However, through the conversation with Nanami, he has made up his mind. ‘I will never lose at least until I beat Mahito up.’
Time has passed and Kyoto Sister-School Goodwill Event Team Battle is now just around the corner.
This is what happened in Anime Jujutsu Kaisen (Episode 1 - 13) which have aired since October! How did you like it?
I love Gojo so much and my favorite scene is when he blew Domain Expansion in Episode 7……! But I also like Nanami in Anime so Episode 12 was awesome too……! Sometimes we have more chara we come to like through a transition from manga to anime~~! Now I’m more addicted to this Jujutsu Kaisen world……!
Lastly, I’ll talk a little bit about Kyoto Sister-School Goodwill Event Team Battle Arc, starting to air next weekend!”
Kyoto Sister-School Goodwill Event Team Battle Arc
Kyoto Sister-School Goodwill Event Team Battle is a competition event between the two schools (the only jujutsu schools in Japan). Usually the 2nd and 3rd year students participate in this event. In past years, both Principals have agreed on the same pattern: team battle on the first day and individual battles on the second.
From Tokyo, Zenin Maki and Inumaki Toge (2nd year) and Hakari (3rd year) were supposed to participate but…… Hakari has been suspended so Fushiguro and Kugisaki will make up for his place.
From Kyoto, Toudou Aoi, Zenin Mai, Miwa Kasumi, who appeared in Episode 8, Kamo Noritoshi, who is the oldest brother of Kamo family (which is known to be the top three sorcerer family along with Gojo and Zenin families), Kamo’s classmate, Nishimiya Momo (3rd year) and Mecha-maru (2nd year) will participate!
The story starts off right before the team battle begins on day 1! What is going to be like……!? Can’t take our eyes off from Anime Jujutsu Kaisen from January too, huh???
Fearsome Womb Arc, where the main protagonist, Itadori is involved with Curses, and Young Fish and Reverse Punishment Arc, where he had a big turning point as a sorcerer (Jujutsushi)…… Aaand Kyoto Sister-School Goodwill Event Team Battle, where he, who has overcome, again challenges! It’s always good to follow the story through anime but why don’t you try the original physical manga as well?
In Manga Republic, a special campaign is currently underway, where you can get a set of 14 volumes of comics with a great deal, commemorating Anime ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’s BIG HIT! Why don’t you check it out?
