"Jojutsu Kaisen" is the story of a high school boy named Yoji Itadori whose friends accidentally release a very dangerous high school curse. He goes on to discover that there are trained people called witches who protect humans from these curses. After a series of complex events, Yoji Itaduri is somehow forced to join the wizards and be trained in a special school. But everyone knows that he is not an ordinary wizard and has many abilities. Here, too, we are dealing with demonic creatures that are present among the people and need to hunt humans in order to survive. The most important difference is that Jojutsu Kaisen tells its story in the heart of today's Japanese society. For this reason, it is somewhat easier to identify with it.

This anime is full of charming and lovable characters. If the "devil killer" acts cautiously and carefully in introducing and paying attractive characters, "Jojutsu Kaisen" brings many characters to the stage without any fear and puts them in front of the audience. This feature is a bit repulsive at first. It is difficult to get acquainted with so many different characters and even remember their names. But soon after the story, all these characters show their unique characteristics and become lovable people for the audience. The highlight of this anime is that it has created unique and rare characters, people whose examples can hardly be found in other animes. For example, one of the wizards in the series is a boy named Touge Inomaki. He, whose most important ability is cursed words, must always remain silent, lest he inadvertently cause someone to curse. Because of this feature, he has designed a unique language for himself. When Tuge wants to make a speech, he uses the vocabulary of rice food and its ingredients.

But the most intriguing character is undoubtedly Saturo Gojo. This wizard, who always puts fear on the lives of the cursed, is kind of the most powerful living wizard in the world. Such a terrifying creature should be terrifying, but Saturo, on the other hand, is a cheerful young man full of jokes and laughter who, whenever he has the opportunity, loses his enemies and friends. But behind this hilarious and hilarious layer is a skilled sage who constantly seeks to identify and thwart the plans of his enemies. Itadori himself is no ordinary hero. By the middle of the story, he is a clumsy teenager who, although he has many abilities, is not able to control and use them properly. Satoru works hard to properly train Itadori.

The amazing action scenes of this anime are some of the features that are unlikely to be forgotten. "Jujutsu Kaisen" is full of breathtaking and spectacular scenes. If you think that anime has not been technically advanced for decades and all works are made in the same way, "Jojutsu Kaisen" is a great proof to refute this claim. These action scenes and these amazing fights, with the possibilities of ten, twelve years ago, could not be made at all. In the very first season, there are some unique battle scenes that you are unlikely to forget. The season of fighting in the jungle, high school, and especially the spectacular fight between nature and anonymity in the municipal sewage network, is one of the extraordinary episodes of the series that you are unlikely to forget any time soon.

Perhaps one of the few objections to" Jujutsu Kaisen "is its long and detailed dialogues. There are many different rules for witches and the curses and battles between them. And this anime is determined to inform all the rules in the form of dialogues. Sometimes we have to wait and hear these explanations, even in the middle of a breathtaking struggle. it is true that Gogot Akotami, the creator of "Jojutsu Kaisen", has worked hard to create and design these rules and they should not be ignored, but there were definitely better ways to introduce them. Incidentally, the "devil killer" escapes from such a trap very well. There, too, we are in favor of many rules, but everything is presented in the right place and in the right way, and it is not the case that these explanations make the audience confused. Even anime like "Attack on Titan" manages to convey the rules of its world to the audience with various tricks (explanations between breaks, or the use of short and fast dialogues). We hope that this challenge will be dropped in the next seasons.

So far, only one season of this anime has been made, but this one season has been widely acclaimed by critics and audiences. Jojutsu Kaisen won the Cranchior Anime Award in 2021 for the "Anime of the Year" award. Cranchirol, one of the most widely used anime distribution platforms in the world, also announced in a report that "Jojutsu Kaisen" is in the second place in the list of the most popular animes of the company in 2020. But perhaps the biggest achievement of "Jojutsu Kaisen" was that in 2021, after the series "Combined Game", this anime was the second most talked about TV series on Twitter. In February of last year, it was announced that the second season of the series is in production and will be released in 2023. We look forward to it!
