Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is a prequel to the main series and follows Yuta Okkotsu, a nervous high school student who is suffering from a serious problem. Unfortunately for everyone the problem is that his childhood friend has turned into a curse and she won’t leave him alone.

I really enjoyed this one! Jujutsu Kaisen is slowly becoming a new favorite. It has the right amount of horror, humor, and action to create a great shōnen series. And you can definitely start with this volume even if you’re not very familiar with the main series. If this intrigues you, I would totally recommend checking out the rest of the series!


About the book


Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student who is suffering from a serious problem — his childhood friend Rika has turned into a curse and won’t leave him alone. Since Rika is no ordinary curse, his plight is noticed by Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Jujutsu High, a school where fledgling exorcists learn how to combat curses. Gojo convinces Yuta to enroll, but can he learn enough in time to confront the curse that haunts him?
