Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the biggest new anime series of the fall, and fans can dive into the series if they have yet to experience the adventures of Yuji Itadori and his fellow first years at the magical high school thanks to Crunchyroll, who has released the first anime episode onto Youtube. The series, created by mangaka Gege Akutami, has been one of the most popular Shonen manga series released in recent memory, following in the foot steps of the likes of Bleach, Yu Yu Hakusho, and other magical anime franchises that revolve around epic battles!

The premise of Jujutsu Kaisen is certainly an original one, with the protagonist Yuji being a part of a supernatural high school club that are looking for monsters and other "bumps in the night", until they encounter the monsters for themselves that is. Itadori gobbles down a "curse" in the form of the finger of the ancient being known as Sukuna, granting him insane levels of power but causing a demon to reside within his body in the process. Now set on the quest to capture, and ingest, all of the demon's fingers that are spread across the world, Yuji is joined by his fellow students to help stop the supernatural scourge.
