Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu, Jujutsu Kaisen (TV) Recommendations
The comparison is clear to anyone who has seen both. Someone even mistook me for watching a new Parasite anime when they briefly glanced over my watching JJK.
They both have a foreign entity who inhabits their body and manifests themselves on that body in similar ways.
-Both involve main characters sharing a body with some kind of enigmatic entity, who failed to completely take them over
-Both have a distinct horror themeing to them
-They even have the same aesthetic of mouths and eyes appearing on the possessed's face and limbs
-Both take place in modern day
Both shows have similar, somwhat dark atmosphere, are packed with action and very fun to watch, while at times pondering on more serious topics.
Both have supernatural elements, and [minor spoiler] deaths of many characters.
One of the similarities is also main character that undergoes a change in his life and acquires abilities that he's never dreamed of, suffers, changes forever and learn more about what it is to be human.
And both OSTs are amazing, animation is solid (jjk's animation is more impressive imo, but Parasyte also looks amazing)
Both involve something trying to take over a host's body; and the main character in both are unable to be taken over completely.
Both Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu and Jujutsu Kaisen have the main protagonist sharing a body with a supernatural force. In Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu, Shinichi Izumi gets infected with a parasite, and in Jujutsu Kaisen, Yuji Itadora gets infected with a curse.
Both are dark action horror anime, with Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu leaning on the seinen side, and is much darker as a result. But both are still pretty similar. Both are 24 episodes as well (Jujutsu Kaisen will have more seasons in the future, however), and the same character designer worked on both.

“To know your enemy, you must become your enemy”
What's the best way to beat-up a Parasite? why use one yourself obviously. What about curses? Use your own! Both take a regular Highschool Teen going through everyday life and throw them into a situation out of nowhere in which they need to adapt to.
