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?
Suicidal thoughts, body horror, violence, blood, death, gore, self harm, and confinement.
