Watch: Jujutsu Kaisen Debuts Opening Theme

Gege Akutami's Jujutsu Kaisen has finally made its debut as part of the Fall 2020 anime season, and with the premiere of this highly anticipated anime adaptation comes the debut of its opening sequence. Titled "Kaikaikitan," the opening theme for the anime series is performed by EVE. Featuring a quick glance at not only the main character, Yuji Itadori, and his cursed energy infused Sukuna alter-ego, the opening theme for the anime gives a look at all of the other allies and enemies that will be making their debut over the course of the anime's debut season.

You can check out the opening theme for the anime series in the video above, and you can also find Jujutsu Kaisen now streaming with Crunchyroll for the remainder of its run. They officially describe the series as such, "A boy fights... for 'the right death.' Hardship, regret, shame: the negative feelings that humans feel become Curses that lurk in our everyday lives."

The synopsis continues with, "The Curses run rampant throughout the world, capable of leading people to terrible misfortune and even death. What's more, the Curses can only be exorcised by another Curse. Itadori Yuji is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life. One day, to save a friend who has been attacked by Curses, he eats the finger of the Double-Faced Specter, taking the Curse into his own soul.

From then on, he shares one body with the Double-Faced Specter. Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Gojo Satoru, Itadori is admitted to the Tokyo Metropolitan Technical High School of Sorcery, an organization that fights the Curses... and thus begins the heroic tale of a boy who became a Curse to exorcise a Curse, a life from which he could never turn back."
