JUJUTSU KAISEN (CRUNCHYROLL, WAKANIM)
In a Japan where the negative feelings felt by humans gradually turn into demonic creatures, exorcists are trained to successfully kill them. More and more powerful, these monsters called scourges, are capable of dragging people into terrible misfortunes or even killing them.
Yuji Itadori, an ordinary high school student, one day devours a demon’s finger while trying to save a friend attacked by a plague. From then on, he finds himself forced to have to share his body with Ryômen Sukuna, as dangerous as he is powerful. To ward off the threat once and for all, and prevent him from being sentenced to death, Yuji will have to find all the other fingers of the Sukuna.
It’s been the buzzing event of 2020, and two years later, Jujutsu Kaisen promises to keep the talk going! Gege Akutami’s work offers you an exciting and dynamic dark fantasy atmosphere, all enhanced by ultra-quality animation by MAPPA.

DRAGON QUEST (ADN, CRUNCHYROLL)
Daï lives on the island of Dermline, and despite his admiration for heroes, he is training to become a mage with his adoptive father, the magimol Brass. One day, the arrival of a band of companions led by a hero aboard a boat fills Dai with excitement, but unfortunately it was a forger. His goal ? Capture a one-of-a-kind mythical creature, the gooey gold metal, Gomechan. In order to get his best friend back, Dai goes after the fake hero and his gang, armed with the magic tubes given to him by Brass.
Meanwhile, on the ship, Dérolin brags about Goméchan’s capture to the King of Romos, but Daï catches up with him and manages to recover Goméchan with the help of the monsters locked in the magic tubes. Moved by Dai’s courage in battle, the King of Romos congratulates him and bestows him with the Conqueror’s Tiara, but he soon has to return to his magic training. Then another ship arrives on the island, with on board Bishop Temjin, Baron the Wise and Princess Leona.
Delightful in more ways than one, this remake of the cult series Fly is thrilling to perfection.

Adapted from the video game saga of the same name, Dragon Quest is a safe bet of classic Shônen.
