Synopsis of Jujutsu Kaisen 0

Yuuta Okkotsu is cursed. Ever since his childhood friend Rika died in a traffic accident, his ghost has stayed with him. But his spirit doesn’t appear as the sweet girl Yuuta once knew. Instead, he manifests 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 he is taken prisoner 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 be hurt.

However, his captor, the 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 fight evil beings. Together 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 bear that seems to walk and talk, Yuuta begins to find his place in the world and, for once, to feel comfortable with his abilities. However, as his training progresses, Yuuta learns that the dangers of the world of Jujutsu go far beyond evil spirits.
