Gege Akutami writes and draws the Shonen Jump manga series, which currently has 192 chapters and 20 compilation volumes. It’s one of the best-selling manga, and has recently exceeded 70 million copies in circulation. The manga received a TV anime series by studio MAPPA in 2018, which ran for a total of 24 episodes. MAPPA also animated the prequel movie, which released in Japan in 2021 and internationally in March of this year. Crunchyroll streams the anime, and they describe the story:
Yuji Itadori is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life. One day, to save a classmate who has been attacked by curses, he eats the finger of Ryomen Sukuna, taking the curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares one body with Ryomen Sukuna. Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is admitted to Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights the curses… and thus begins the heroic tale of a boy who became a curse to exorcise a curse, a life from which he could never turn back.
