    17/12/20 I really enjoyed this one. To be honest, I preferred it over the first volume lmao. The character building of Yuta was solid and I just really enjoyed the arc including the way in which it ended. Looking forward to him perhaps popping up again in the later volumes :) 16/12/20 Thanks Viz for a copy of this manga :) You can find me on Youtube | Instagram | Twitter | Tumblr | Website | The Storygraph 17/12/20 I really enjoyed this one.

    Was I the only one who was kinda unsatisfied with this? I felt like the ending/the story itself just left me with more questions than when I was reading JJK. To be honest, I really didn't have any plans on reading this but being a JJK fan, people said that reading this is canon and can help me connect the dots on the current story. However after reading this, the only thing I got are more questions.

I wish to know what happened to him afterwards and his current adventures. Welp. Here's to hoping that he WILL actually appear in JJK sometime soon.

    This is a prequel of mostly the 2nd year students but when they were first years. yata Okkotsu is the main character here. He has a special grade vengeful spirit inside him named Rika. After she died at a young age she has haunted him. Though when he gets angry and she comes out, everyone should run, because she don't play. But when Gojo brings him under his wing with his other students he hopes to harness that power. Geto has other plans and launches a full on attack.

Geto has other plans and launches a full on attack. This is a pretty solid volume. If want some more background on characters, learn more about Yata who's pretty much gone in the main series training overseas, and learn more about Geto and Gojo, this is worth reading. The fights are fun, the stories are solid, pacing is really well done. Overall worth reading for sure if you're a fan of the main series.

    Warnings: automotive death, body horror, violence When I first saw this prequel I thought it would probably be the story of young Gojo in school or something, but having it be about Itadori's seniors is cool too. It has a cursed person as the main character - Yuta Okkotsu - who is being protected by a special grade curse, Rika, resulting from his dead childhood friend who he promised to marry when older, hanging on. With her being so protective of him, he is inadvertently dangerous to be around.

It has a cursed person as the main character - Yuta Okkotsu - who is being protected by a special grade curse, Rika, resulting from his dead childhood friend who he promised to marry when older, hanging on. With her being so protective of him, he is inadvertently dangerous to be around. Gojo, however, wants to help him 'break the curse', as in exorcise her. Meanwhile, however, he can be trained to use the cursed energy without unleashing the curse itself. The plot has Getou targeting him and to do so, he challenges the schools that he will unleash a thousand curse parade on them (my ass thought it would be an actual parade). His real objective is to get to Okkotsu and steal his curse. Like the series, there are some cool battles, plus we get to see more of the Tokyo second years (they are first years here) and learn a bit more about their abilities. (At least from a perspective of a reader who has read only two volumes of the main series). Of note is Toge Inumaki, whose cursed speech technique is also delved into. Even if you're unfamiliar with the main series or want to start with this prequel first, this story works well as an introduction; we see Getou's resentment towards being a jujutsu sorcerer, and it establishes his long game well enough. Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review from Viz Media LLC, via Edelweiss.

    This story makes me more pumped to find out how everything fits together and work as a great prequel.

We see events, which are only referenced in the manga, which happen in 2017 and follow Yuta and other people we know to be a year older. It is a good story and it works pretty well, however, if my love for the series was lower I would not give this four stars.

    After watching what's available of the anime, I decided to read this prototype/prequel manga which follows a character I have yet to meet on-screen. While I enjoyed the story, and the additional background info provided on certain characters, I find myself with more questions than answers. I think the story could have been more fleshed out if it were slightly longer, but I get that initial manga such as this are more of an audience test, rather than fully completed stories.

    They better make the movie on this volume because Yuuta's arc and character are one of my favourites.

    I was intrigued by this "prequel" and how it would play out storywise considering we have a different protagonist and circumstances. Some may see Yuta as the precursor for Yuji, basically the mold for this one; yet I believe this is partially correct in many ways, but he becomes a character on his own with contrasting goals and personalities to Yuji. For instance, while Yuji aspires to find a way to "die a proper death" while remaining charismatic and positive in his journey, Yuta, on the other h I was intrigued by this "prequel" and how it would play out storywise considering we have a different protagonist and circumstances. Some may see Yuta as the precursor for Yuji, basically the mold for this one; yet I believe this is partially correct in many ways, but he becomes a character on his own with contrasting goals and personalities to Yuji. For instance, while Yuji aspires to find a way to "die a proper death" while remaining charismatic and positive in his journey, Yuta, on the other hand, aspires to "live his life to the fullest" while dealing with his own insecurities and overcoming both his literal and personal demons. Keeping in mind this was supposed to be a one-shot, I can otherwise overlook how it jumped from different events towards a huge, full-on war between sorcerers that we hardly experience save for the climactic one. We also get the backgrounds of key characters in Jujutsu Kaisen as well as how their lives were affected by Yuta, but the final fight scene not only incredibly wraps up the entire volume, but also paves way for the events that we already familiar with. Not only that but it has, in my opinion, the second-best fight in the series (so far), coming close to Yuji's fight in Vol. 4. Both of these have several themes, motifs, and development in common, but the key point is how even in these fights, both protagonists are again beautifully juxtaposed, making Yuji's better for having more build-up as well as being a turning point in the character. Nevertheless, it's a great volume that honestly deserves the praise. Hopefully, the author will use Yuta in the future because it's such a great character that'll be a waste to misuse him.

    A really solid read! I picked this up after watching season one of Jujutsu Kaizen, as I figured it would be a fun read considering at this point in the anime we have only vaguely heard of the fabled “fourth second year”: that being Yuta Okkotsu. That and it is near impossible to get your hands on any of the main series manga right now due to its immense popularity. The real star of this volume is Yuta and his characterization.

That and it is near impossible to get your hands on any of the main series manga right now due to its immense popularity. The real star of this volume is Yuta and his characterization. Despite it only being a light novel type read, Yuta still is noticeably changed by the end of the story. Protagonist growth is always appreciated for these bite size volumes, as we only get so much time, and it is an effective way to have us feel like something was accomplished. Yuta’s situation in was refreshing to see. That being his relationship with the curse haunting him, and making his life a misery in the name of protection and love. When the novel begins he’s at rock bottom, and he learns to cope and move forward with the traumatic events in his life by the end. His relationship to the other characters was heartwarming to see, especially Maki as I’m a sucker for her characterization and dynamic with Yuta. Inumaki and his dynamic is simple, and albeit a little textbook, but effective. Panda is Panda. The story as a whole wasn’t mind blowing, but it served its purpose as backstory/world building surrounding a as of now background character.

I'm excited to continue reading them even though I know its going to make me sob.

Its interesting to see that he had a previous friendship with Gojo and that he doesn't hold any hard feelings towards the school even though he'd rather kill innocents then protect them. This is making me so excited to see more of his character. Lastly Gojo seems to have a thing for bringing in cursed kids on death row. Second last thing. I can't remember the glasses guy's name right now but I liked that he tried to convince the kids to take a better path. In the anime I loved how Nanami refused to let Itadori get in harms way because he recognizes that he's a kid so its nice to see another adult thinking the same way. In so many of these shows with 15 yr old protagonists, they're created and only seen as child soldiers by the adults around them so its refreshing to see adults recognize that they're kids and not soldiers.

    Jujutsu Kaisen is, overall, a really good shounen. The author knows perfectly how to use the story-telling elements of this genre that have been previously established by previous authors. The art is great, the fights are fun and captivating and it easily gets you hyped. However, Jujutsu Kaisen's weak point for me as always been it's establishment on new themes to the series. This prequel volume was fun and had its great moments, but it didn't have any type of setup or concept that was established Jujutsu Kaisen is, overall, a really good shounen.

This prequel volume was fun and had its great moments, but it didn't have any type of setup or concept that was established from the very first chapter. Things just kinda... Happened. The main character's personality and backstory were great and had so much potential, but it spends too much time that in many ways just feels like your typical shounen filler. It's only halfway through the volume that we finally get into the actual main fight with the main villain. And when we finally do, it only lasts for 3 to 2 chapters. It probably would've worked MUCH better if instead of being a normal volume, it would have been a slightly longer one-shot type of format. That way we had more time to truly flesh out all the events and the characters. It did had it's great, hype moments that Jujutsu Kaisen is so great at. But those weak parts were clearly there and they were quite big. Hopefully, the movie adaptation will manage to put some more impact and excitement into this.

    This is a prequel about the series' second-year students back when they were first years, with a student possessed by a powerful curse monster based off his childhood friend. It helps informs who the characters are, and why we should care about them, as my current reading of the series (having finished volume 3 but not yet read volume 4) has me seeing them as rather flat.

But after reading this, I'm more invested in the rest of the world- the supporting cast of now-second-years and the antagonists. Also, there's some sharp and explosive action. You get the feeling that these characters aren't our protagonists so Gege Akutami could go all out with making it big and explosive without ruining the progression of the main story. Sure, there are powerful people like this a year in Jujutsu Kaisen's "past", but by the end of the volume there's some big changes that mean their eventual strength upon the resumption of the main story could be vastly different. Or maybe they only become relevant again when our protagonists have reached this level? Who knows, but it's a solid story and worth reading after the second or third volume of the series (since that's when it starts referencing characters from this volume).

    While I'm not always a fan of prequels, this was FUCKING DOPE! It was great seeing Maki's, Panda's, and Inumaki's time as first years as well as FINALLY being introduced to Okkotsu. Okkotsu's relationship with Rika was really interesting and deeper the world and lore of Jujutsu Kaisen, something I'm pretty obsessed with.

Geto is such an interesting and twisted villain, full of personality with the talent and smarts to back up his pompous attitude. I love how twisted the reasoning behind his motivation is and how he's capable of manipulating others. Easily one of the better Shounen Jump villains for sure. Learning more about Inumaki and seeing him in action made my heart swell. He's easily one of my favorite characters in the series and I love seeing his cursed technique at work. His interactions with Panda and Okkotsu were nice as well and its fascinating that he's closest to Panda then the other students. Can't wait to see backstory on that friendship! Long story short, this was a fun, disturbing, and wholly entertaining read that I highly recommend any Jujutsu Kaisen fan read. Love, love, loved it!

I'm interested enough to keep going, though I have concerns. Akutami can't seem to decide whether to focus on the main character or the class of students, and the plot wobbles back and forth between the two, an annoyance I had with Naruto. Sorry, but one teenage boy is boring, a group of teenagers is hilarious and has potential. I was surprised by the lower than average quality of the art - Akutami has a well-develop style...but struggles with perspective? Any time more than one character is in a panel, the heads were...off. Also, there's a guide at the beginning to telling different characters apart. Er, your character designs should be distinct?

The plot is fast-paced and full of detail. The dialogue between characters is revealing and the illustration capture the emotions well. The drawings of the curses are haunting, almost in a Junji Ito style! A great read for horror and thrill-seekers. The characters are well developed and there is a lot that can happen in this series. I cannot wait to begin the series!

    I'm not sure if I should count this as a book or if that would be considered cheating on my reading goal but whatever. It was bound like a book anyway, so. I was so excited to finally get to meet Yuta Okkotsu and learn the mystery behind the Jujutsu Sorcerer the characters seemed to have such high regard for. It was worth the pre-ordering and waiting for the physical copy to arrive. Yuta is the kind of character you tend to root for through and through.

Sucks when your bestfriend feels strongly for something and you can't change his mind or stop him from making bad choices. Sucks that you have to make the difficult decision of saving him from himself to keep everyone else safe. Sucks that until the end, it doesn't change how you feel about your friendship and that you love him just the same. Sucks to be Satoru Gojo. Overall - awesome art, awesome story. Super satisfied and looking forward to the rest of it.

    Okay, now this series was supposed to be a prequel story to the ongoing events of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga. Without reading this or knowing about this, the entirety of the manga after the Shibuya arc will feel bland, as if what the hell is going on. More than being a prequel, it served as a bridge to connect two storyline arcs of different times. But rather than giving insight, it just explores on its own adventures Not explaining the roots of the characters, just explaining their brief abilities.

Exposing too much of the antagonist side and Getou Suguru, who in the JJK series has been kept so reserved till now, was a total opposite to his cool character, it kind of contradicted certain events between Satoru and Getou that were skipped from here as well Nonetheless it was enjoyable, and for those who guys who haven't watched or read the ongoing Jujutsu Kaisen series, this prequel/spin-off is a perfect headstart. At times you may question what is happening, but everything will transpire later on.

A new kid, Yuta Okkotsu, enrolls in the academy with some serious baggage: his girlfriend had been brought back in the form of a powerful Queen of Curses. The monster fights in this one are fun. The demon designs are inventive, with clearly delineated powers. There’s a sense of horror-type fear, rather than just nerves informed strictly by the world-building. The characters also leaped off the page. I was particularly endeared to Maki and Yuta, but thoroughly creeped out by Toge. I did enjoy the tenderness that developed between them as Yuta grew to trust his classmates. The resolution was bittersweet, but it was a great introduction to the tone of the series, and I’m fully onboard with this delightful blend of shonen and horror.

    As the volume number 0 implies, this is a prequel story. If you've read up to volume 2 (and around volume 5ish), you'll recognize most of these characters as this happens about 1 year before Yuji eats his first Sukuna finger. You'll recognize the (now) 2nd year jujutsu sorcerers and one of the main villains. This story is about how Okkotsu became a jujutsu sorcerer and about the Day of the Night Parade of a Hundred Demons. In the current story line, Okkotsu is overseas and misses the Good Will Ev As the volume number 0 implies, this is a prequel story.

In the current story line, Okkotsu is overseas and misses the Good Will Event, as lamented by Todo who was apparently took part in the fight against the Hundred Demons. This story also helps solidify Geto's (our Big-Bad-Evil-Guy) character and motivations as well as his connection with Gojo. Overall, it's a fun (if you can call gorey horror fun) flashback that lets us know about Okkotsu, fills in some backstory, and allows the 2nd years a chance to be in the spotlight.

    A good prequal. I enjoy the long form series a lot and am very attached to the characters in it. If Gege Akutami had decided to make this into the main focus, I probably would have liked it as well, but do ultimately prefer the Sukuna plot and the intricacies surrounding it. Megumi's part of the story is exceptionally fascinating. The prequal is a bit more simplistic in its story telling, but I like that it ties into the main story and how a lot of things connect.

Honestly the only inconsistency is Gojo wearing bandages over his eyes and Inumaki's haircut, otherwise everything else snaps into place extremely well! I loved that Geto had Toji's gross worm and the appearance of Playful Cloud as well.
