Top Anime Reddit is Talking About
Jujutsu Kaisen – 1 season
IMDB – 8.7/10
One of the biggest hits this season, ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ created an Anime Reddit buzz before dropping on streaming platforms. There was some speculation as to whether it will live to the expectations, but boy oh boy.
The story captures the life of Yuji Itadori, a high school student who joins the Occult club in his school to laze around. Little did he know that the members can manipulate the energy of the soul. On one such adventure, they stumble upon a cursed object said to be the strongest demon’s finger, Sukuna.
Other cursed creatures pursued the cursed object, and Yuji had no choice other than to swallow the finger to save his friends. In the process of eating, he becomes a vessel for Sukuna and inherits his destructive power. To get free from the curse, he now has to swallow the remaining nine fingers and, hence, join Jujutsu tech, a school for sorcerers.
