Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen
The anime will be adapted from one of the best-selling horror manga of the same name, which is serialized in Weekly Shounen Jump since March 2018.
Shueisha releases its individual chapters, while Viz media is responsible for its English translations.
It tells the story of highschooler Yuji Itadori and his friends at the Occult Club, who end up unearthing a cursed rotting finger and supernatural horrors are unleashed.
The TV anime adaptation of Gege Akutami’s (in)famous manga series ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ is expected to be one of the most eyeball grabbing releases to hit our screens this year.
Given the cult following surrounding the manga, often crowned ‘GOAT’ by its fandom, it is surprising that fans are comparing this to the likes of Tokyo Ghoul.
Keep an eye on this section for the English translated trailer of the show.
