Jujutsu Kaisen Anime Announcement Updates

The news will not be shown this Sunday but the following Sunday assuming that there are no delays. The piece of news will also contain information regarding the studio which will be animating the manga and also about the voice actors.
The Jujutsu Kaisen anime adaptation was announced in the 52nd issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump, on November 25th, 2019. The manga author Gege Akutami and the main cast members appeared at Jump Festa 2020 on December 22, 2019. Toho has been confirmed to be producing the series.
Yuuji Itadori is an unnaturally fit high school student living in Sendai with his grandfather. He regularly avoids the track team due to his aversion to athletics, despite his innate talent for the sport.
Instead, he chooses to join 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 instils 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 sorcerer (巫, Shaman) who informs him of a high-grade cursed charm talisman at his school that Yuuji recently made contact with.
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. Due to Sukuna’s evil nature, all sorcerers are required to exorcise him (and by extension, Yuuji) immediately.
However, despite being possessed, Yuuji is still able to retain control over his body for the most part.
Seeing this, Satoru Gojou, Megumi’s teacher, decides to take 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.
