Viz Media published the manga’s first three chapters in English simultaneously with Japan as part of its Jump Start initiative. When the company then switched to its new Shonen Jump model, it began publishing new chapters of the manga digitally.
Viz Media published the third volume in print on April 7. Shueisha is also publishing the manga on its MANGA Plus website.
Yuuji Itadori is an unnaturally fit high school student living in Sendai with his grandfather.
He regularly avoids the track team because of his aversion to athletics, despite his innate talent for the sport. Instead, he joins the Occult Research Club, where he can relax and hang out with his seniors, and leave school by 5:00 pm to visit his grandfather in the hospital. While he is on his deathbed, his grandfather instills two powerful messages within Yuuji – “always help people” and “die surrounded by a crowd”. After his grandfather’s death, Yuuji interprets these messages as one statement – everyone deserves “a proper death”.
He is then confronted by Megumi Fushiguro, a sorceror (巫, Shaman) who informs him of a high-grade cursed charm talisman at his school that Yuuji recently contacted. His friends at the Occult Club unsealed the talisman, a rotting finger which attracted Curses to the school, creatures that are brought about through negative emotions and are strengthened by consuming magical powers present in sorcerers or such charms.
Unable to defeat the Curses due to his lack of magical powers, Yuuji swallows the finger to protect Megumi and his friends and becomes the host of Sukuna, a powerful Curse. Because of Sukuna’s evil nature, all sorcerers are required to exorcise him (and by extension, Yuuji) immediately.

However, despite being possessed, Yuuji can still keep control over his body, mostly. Seeing this, Satoru Gojou, Megumi’s teacher, takes him to the Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College to propose a plan to his superiors – postpone Yuuji’s death sentence until he consumes all of Sukuna’s fingers, allowing them to kill him once and for all.
