Synopsis

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 Metropolitan Jujutsu Technical High School, he begins to walk down a path from which he cannot return—the path of a Jujutsu sorcerer.

Overall: 8/10
Is JJK a masterpiece? No. Very few animes deserve that title. But I definitely wouldn't rush into labeling it as another "run of the mill shounen."

Jujutsu Kaisen will be huge. Demon Slayer levels of success? Unlikely, since it's tone and themes, are vastly different so it won't appeal to as massive of an audience Demon Slayer could. But personally, I think JJK will be rising to the top of the shounen world in the next 2 years, especially considering the manga is just barely getting started (JJK looks like it'll easily reach 500+ chapters by its end).

So what makes this "shounen-jump" adaptation unlike the read more

Jujutsu Kaisen is undoubtedly the 'other' big anime of Fall 2020 that everyone is talking about (The primary one of course being Haikyuu!! To the Top! Part 2). Of course everyone is praising this anime left and right. There are barely any negative reviews about this wherever I try to check, except for very few. To be very honest, I personally definitely am not the biggest fan of Jujutsu Kaisen.

Story: 5. As far as the starting episodes go, this show did look quite promising. However, nowadays we anime watchers have become such that more or less any anime that seems to follow a sort of read more

*Contains minor spoilers*

For me the Shōnen Genre differs in itself into two different categories. The distinct difference can be seen starting from the first episode. It involves the protagonist’s motive and the cause of his journey. Known classics such as HunterxHunter, Naruto and the newly added Black Clover have their characters simply wanting to become stronger and starts through “aspirations”. Gon wanting to be a hunter like his father, Naruto wanting to become the next hokage, Asta wanting to be the Wizard King.

In contrast, Jujutsu Kaisen derives from misfortune and not having a choice. Yuji Itadori consumes Sukuna’s curse and at that moment, he becomes read more

[Put it "on-hold" at episode 8 titled "Boredom" in where I felt really bored and uninterested]

Jujutsu Kaisen:
An over-hyped, typical shounen show that's trying to be straight into the action by relatively being shorter!

I'm someone who values the plot the most, and finds more enjoyment in reasonably fast-paced shows, and I have always had problem with the shounen genre in general, mainly because they don't give a damn about logic and are usually very slow-paced, too long, too repetitive with no effective progress in the story.
So I got excited and optimistic when I saw that Jujutsu Kaisen is gonna be only 24 episodes, and hence fast read more
