The anime follows Yuji Itadori, a kind-hearted teenager with superhuman strength. His luck runs out when he and his classmates stumble on a cursed object.

The object attracts other curses, and in the midst of trying to save his classmates, he meets the exorcist Megumi Fushiguro who’s on the hunt for the object. They both battle the curses and when they’re about to lose, Itadori eats the cursed objects; a finger and Sukuna awakens and defeats the curses easily. 

Itadori for some reason, wasn’t overtaken by Sukuna, and he regained his body. Itadori is apprehended by Gojo Satoro, the strongest exorcist.

He is given two options: Either die right now or hunt down all of Sukuna’s fingers and then die, killing Sukuna in the process. Thus, Itadori joins Jujutsu High and faces curses in order to survive.
