This Sendai, Japan, teen, Yuji Itadori, is very fit for his age. On his deathbed, Itadori’s grandfather gives his grandson two pieces of invaluable advice: “always aid others” and “die surrounded by people.” A powerful Curse known as Ryomen Sukuna was unleashed upon Itadori when his friends in the Occult Club broke up a decaying finger talisman. Their school became a magnet for Curses because of this. Itadori’s reckless behavior put the lives of Megumi Fushiguro and his other pals at jeopardy. It is important that all sorcerers immediately conduct an exorcism spell against Sukuna, since he is a malicious entity (and, by implication, Itadori). Teacher Satoru Gojo, who also happens to be Megumi’s mentor, sends Itadori to the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School to make a pitch to his superiors: put off Itadori’s execution and have him train with Gojo until he eats all of Sukuna’s fingers, thereby destroying the Curse. Satoru Gojo, Megumi’s instructor, invites Itadori to school because he has seen that Itadori is able to keep his body under control. Also, a band of cursed spirits is gearing up for a multi-pronged attack on the jujutsu sorcery world. There are other members of this gang, including the afflicted ghost Mahito and the perverted sorcerer Suguru Geto, who was killed by Gojo a year before. The headmaster of the Kyoto dojo ordered Itadori’s immediate elimination from the jujutsu match between the Tokyo and Kyoto dojos. Other others, including Gojo’s classmate Nobara Kugisaki, are on his side in trying to keep Itadori alive.
We learn that Kokichi Muta, a second-year student at Kyoto Jujutsu Tech and the Mechamaru’s pilot, is really a mole. Over Shibuya, Geto and the curse’s ghosts have erected a barrier. Numerous sorcerers from all around the world go to the site to do battle with them. After Gojo defeats the bad spirits and frees Hanami from the curse, Geto locks him within a certain object. What’s more, everything that’s happened proves that the current Geto isn’t the real deal but rather Geto’s corpse that’s been possessed by the old sorcerer Kenjaku. Gojo remains imprisoned inside the artifact, but Itadori and his allies face battle against Kenjaku’s forces anyway. Kenjaku discloses at the end of the episode that he has been implanting Binding Vows and reincarnating for thousands of years. Many people in Japan have become sorcerers as a consequence of this, including Megumi’s step-sister Tsumiki Fushiguro. Then, he unleashes a torrent of curses on Japan, ushering in an age of chaos and a world populated by cursed spirits reminiscent of the Heian Period.

Tengen, an immortal jujutsu sorcerer who is part-human and part-Curse, reveals Kenjaku’s goal to fuse his mind with Japan’s human population after Itadori and Megumi, a second-year student and a special grade jujutsu sorcerer and one of the most powerful sorcerers in the history of the world, team up to meet him.
