Idly indulging in baseless paranormal activities with the Occult Club, high schooler Yuuji Itadori spends his days at either the clubroom or the hospital, where he visits his bedridden grandfather. However, this leisurely lifestyle soon takes a turn for the strange when he unknowingly encounters a cursed item. Triggering a chain of supernatural occurrences, Yuuji finds himself suddenly thrust into the world of Curses—dreadful beings formed from human malice and negativity—after swallowing the said item, revealed to be a finger belonging to the demon Sukuna Ryoumen, the King of Curses.

Yuuji experiences first-hand the threat these Curses pose to society as he discovers his own newfound powers. Introduced to the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School, he begins to walk down a path from which he cannot return—the path of a Jujutsu sorcerer.

Season 1 is worth watching SOLELY because Season 2 is amazing.

What was good about season 1 IMO:
-Voice acting, direction and phenomenal cast
-creative power system (except for the MC :D)

Not so good:
-Slow arc in the middle which I didn't enjoy personally
-BGM not memorable

Mixed Feelings
It was quite enjoyable to watch. The animations are enough to make me want to appreciate these action-packed moments; it's undeniably cool to watch. The universe is nice, albeit somewhat cliché, although that's not really a problem...

...Except when it's way too much, to the extent that you truly feel a lack of personality during certain episodes. The four main characters are exactly the same as Naruto. Speaking of characters, few are endearing; giving us 2 minutes of background (which are also clichéd to the extreme) isn't enough for me to appreciate their stories. Sukuna is probably the only slightly interesting one; otherwise, they're very flat. ...

I dont see what the fuzz is about this show. Average at best, cookie cutter shounen. Suffers from the same issue Kimetsu no Yaiba has, too much effort invested into animation and low effort into character design, world building, etc.

The power system is barely explained upon and some of the powers come straight out of a toddlers mind. Nanami's "Ratio Technique" is idiotic. He can divide anything into "lengths" which are subdivided into a ratio of 7:3, at the separation point there will be a weak point. (?????) The length to be decided by Nanami has no limitations so essentialy he can place the weak ...
