Yash Solanki So you can read 0 before 1 but not necessary. I recommend you read 0 after chapter 78, so that means after the second to last chapter of volume 9

Dani ❤️ Perspective of a Writer
After reading Jujutsu Kaisen vol 1 I understand more why other battle manga titles are disappointing to some readers. While the story isn’t breaking new ground the setup gives us a great idea of how our jujutsu members will work together.

This sets up Jujutsu Kaisen’s world so quickly! Yuji is the type of kid I love to read in these battle manga. Good hearted, protective but also rash and daring. He eats a dangerous finger, come on that makes him so worthy of the hero title.

Megumi though won me

chapter 1-7

Started watching the anime a few days ago (and its at episode 5 atm) so I went straight into reading the manga.

I'm more into reading romance, but I was really interesting world building and fantasy elements. I'm also really digging the characters, fighting, and magical lore.

Plus I might be a bit obsessed with Satoru Gojo--sue me.

currently reading: chapter 135

update January 19th: I am now caught up. It has broken me. I am depressed.

I have reached that point where I catch up with the anime and then start reading the manga because I am an impatient bitch.

Anyway. I'm really enjoying this series! It's that perfect blend of action and humor and amazing characters that I love with all my soul. I've always had a soft spot for pure and soft protagonists like Itadori Yuji. That boy deserves the world and all the happiness in i

I love the anime of this series so thought it would be cool to go back and read the manga and I'm so glad I did!

This was great and they adapted this so well. Such a good start and nice to go back and refresh everything that happened.

I love all the characters so much but Gojo is my favourite!

On to vol 2!

This was an interesting start to what I hope will be a great series.

It’s dark and has some really disgusting looking creatures so in that regard I really liked it. However I didn’t really get the chance to like the characters yet in this volume. I like the overall story and the action but the characters are kind of bland for me. I know that it will take time as they develop to really make an informed decision about whether I like them or not though. I do plan on picking up more volumes to see w

Honestly don't know why I decided to reread this volume a month later when I still haven't picked up the second volume, but I liked it more I think. I'm really hoping to love this series so my brain has already accepted it as a fave so I really hope it doesn't disappoint.

This is a solid first volume! The character designs are cool and the story is interesting. Also the little notes from the mangaka are cute. I like them.

This was pretty funny even if very shonen.

You have a guy, Yuji Itadori, who is in a after school club about spirits and demons and such. But when they open the wrong package, a artifact that's cursed. When a demon/spirit attacks the school Itadori steps up but so does another fighter who can summon creatures to help. In the end Itadori swallows the artifact and crazy shit occurs.

The best part about this series is how fast paced everything is. The fights are quick, brutal at times, and pretty f

First came across the anime and since Im waiting for new episodes to come out, I decided to read the manga in the meantime.

Characters are great, awesome fighting scenes and some funny bits. I definitely recommend this to anyone who is into supernatural series. A solid volume.

I am liking this so far, but not loving. All the plot elements remind me of other mangas. The beginning reminded me Bleach a lot.

If I had died, or I had been the only to live the future wouldn’t be as bright.

There is something to be said about shonen manga. It can be too much at times. Sometimes you’re just not in the mood for constant action or an array of characters you know you’ll never be able to keep up with. When done right however it can blow you away and keep you engaged throughout the entire volume, nonstop battle scenes be damned. This is one such manga and I am so happy that I requested to read it and that I w

I think i'm in love with this already.

What a great first volume this one was, i had so much fun with it. The art is fantastic, i love the characters and the curses designs. The fightscenes were fast and bloody. And the story was awesome, not so much of it that you get dizzy with so much information but enough of the lore of this world to want more. Also, loved the comedy.

The characters were incredible too, the main trio and Gojo-sensei complement perfectly and i LOVE Fushiguro's Shikigamis. Thos

Damn, this was good! Action-packed story with an interesting main character, cool side characters and good art. I am into that! It seems that this story will not shy away from gore and some heavier themes and be less shonen and more as seinen.

The demons/curses in this do remind me a little bit of Chainsaw man - but this was published first - however, even though they seem similar I find that the story is already different enough that similar setting will not be an issue. The only thing I think w

The plot and the concept of curses is absurd and strange, but the characterization is brilliant. Gojo's blindfold really suits him. Overall, an average read.

I enjoy the anime version so much, that means, of course I enjoy the manga version too. The second reason is... GOJO SATORU MY MAN😩✊

4.5. Awesome!! I just started watching the anime for this as well. I think both are amazing. The combination of magic-ish elements, creepy elements, and dark ones was very unique and interesting to me. I think the characters have a bunch of potential so I hope we get to learn more about them and this world in the future volumes. The anime also has amazing animation and really great voice actors btw......
that's my way of saying watch it and read it.......btw.....do...it....it awesome..ok bye..heh
