COLUMN: An anime full of supernatural adventure


Karyne Allen, Columnist

“Jujutsu Kaisen” is an anime that was released in 2020 and also has a manga. This anime has one season and one movie. This anime can be watched in English and a hand full of other languages. It can be watched on Crunchyroll and FUNimation.

Warning this anime does have violence, offensive language to some.

“Jujutsu Kaisen” has 24 episodes that can be watched now. There is also a movie out that is also out that did come to movie theaters in the U.S.A when it was released now it can be watched online. This anime has an 8.6/10 on IMDb. It is an Action, Adventure anime.

In the first episode viewers are introduced to the main characters that will keep appearing as the show progresses. This anime is about Yuji Itadori who swallows a cursed talisman which is the finger of a demon who is now inside him and shares the same body.

Itadori is then forced to join an organization that fights curses. Satoru Gojo is out in charge of him because he is one of the most powerful sorcerers who can keep Itadori in line if anything should happen.

Itadori is used to find the rest of the demon fingers so that they can exorcise the cure that the fingers have. The only problem is that he must eat each finger they find, and it will make the demon stronger than sharing his body. This means Itadori can never return to normal and put himself at risk.

I think this anime has great animation and has scenes with colors that bring a pop to the scene and bring attention to what is going on. The animation also adds to the humor of this anime.

“Jujutsu Kaisen” is also particularly good to watch if you like action because there are a lot of fighting scenes but not only that it tells an interesting story that will catch the viewers’ attention.

In my opinion I think this anime is great to watch if you want something funny to watch but want a little more action to go with the humor. It can get very serious at times but other times it is just a fun anime that gives you a laugh.

I also think watching the movie before the anime is fine too because the movie is more about characters that are in the show, but it takes place before the timeline in the show.

The movie shows what happened to the characters before they met Itadori and shows how the main character in that movie affected each character. The movie can also be watched after the show because it just gives a better understanding of the characters themselves.

This anime is great for anyone trying to get into anime and is very entertaining to watch. This anime is extremely easy to understand and follow the story line which can be a plus when it comes to anime.

This anime should have season two coming out and will continue the story of each character.
