Sinopsis de Jujutsu Kaisen 0
Yuuta Okkotsu is cursed. Ever since his childhood friend, Rika, died in a car accident, his ghost has stayed with him. But her spirit doesn’t appear like the sweet girl that Yuuta once knew. Instead, he manifests himself as a monstrous and powerful entity that fiercely protects him. Unable to control Rika’s violent behavior, Yuuta is powerless to stop the bloodshed that follows her brutal revenge. As a result, when captured by the “Jujutsu” sorcerers, the secret guardians of the world, trained to combat forces like Rika, Yuuta wishes to be completely isolated so that no one else can get hurt.
However, his captor, Master Sorcerer Satoru Gojou, has other plans for him: he will enter the Jujutsu High School and learn to control Rika to help people. Now, in his first year at this school, Yuuta begins to learn the arts of Jujutsu and to fight evil beings. Along with his new companions Maki Zenin, an expert in Jujutsu weapons; Toge Inumaki, a sorcerer who uses his words as weapons; and Panda, a panda who seems to walk and talk, Yuuta begins to find his place in the world and, for once, to get comfortable with his abilities. However, as his training progresses, Yuuta learns that the dangers of the Jujutsu world go far beyond evil spirits.
