As a child, Rika Orimoto got into a traffic accident and died right in front of her best friend, Yuta Okkotsu. Since then, Rika has turned into a curse that follows Yuta wherever he goes.
Rika’s presence in a terrible and strong form makes Yuta suffer so he decides to isolate himself. However, the greatest Jujutsu sorcerer, Satoru Gojo, has other plans for Yuta and welcomes him to join Tokyo Jujutsu High.
At the school, Yuta meets several classmates including Maki Zen’in a Jujutsu weapon expert, Toge Inumaki the spellcaster who uses words as weapons, and Panda the talking panda bear. Yuta also managed to get up and find a place in this world where he felt comfortable with his abilities.
