    My one complaint is that I think the overall story composition lacks a little. It feels like there are a lot of abrupt jump cuts that leave a lot out sometimes. Especially with regards to flashbacks.

    A flashback arc? Gosh, Akutami is too good to me. I can sense the five star rating coming next volume. I can feel it in my bones. This is Jujutsu Kaisen's Dark Era Arc equivalent. Half tempted to just read another volume tonight. A flashback arc? Gosh, Akutami is too good to me. I can sense the five star rating coming next volume. I can feel it in my bones.

The manga is released in a weekly magazine called the Weekly Shonen Jump (WSJ), but the chapters are grouped together in volumes so I’m reviewing volume 8 which covers the death painting and star plasma vessel arc. The main purpose of the death painting arc is to show growth in characters and tie the overarching antagonist back into the story and for the star plasma arc it’s to add depth and more information to characters and ideas that we have already been introduced to, but don’t know much about. Although manga in the WSJ are typically targeted towards younger audiences I feel that the manga also covers an interesting theme in regards to duty and the role of people who are able to do things that others cannot. A brief summary of the death painting arc is that there are mysterious cases of murder involving a cursed spirit that has eaten a cursed object (one of Sukuna’s fingers) and the main trio (Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara) have to deal with the spirit that is causing all of the killings and cursed wombs that have been consumed by humans and are trying to retrieve the finger. The primary purpose of this arc is to tie the main overarching villain (Sukuna who is inside of Yuji) back into the story. This is mainly expressed through dialogue between Nobara and Megumi and Yuji and Sukuna which lets us know that the finger that Yuji ate at the beginning set off all of the fingers making them manifest as powerful cursed spirits. In addition to bringing the overarching goal of the main character (collect all fingers then be executed) we also see Nobara and Megumi grow stronger. This is important for keeping the manga interesting since it can be monotonous when only the main character is improving. In this arc we see Megumi’s attempt at a domain expansion and Nobara doing Black Flash. This improvement is also important to the story because it gives reasons for why Sukuna starts taking special interest in Megumi. We also start to see a theme surrounding duty and personal beliefs that shows up more in the next arc as we see Yuji struggle with exorcising the cursed wombs since they were humans initially that were force fed cursed objects and Nobara’s point of view where it is a jujutsu sorcerer’s job to do this and she has been in the jujutsu world for a while so she has more or less come to terms with this idea. The next arc expands on this idea more as we go back in time to when Gojo Satoru was a student himself and still friends with Geto Suguru (the villain of the prequel series and this one as well although we find out that it’s not Geto). A brief summary before I explain the purpose and overarching themes is that there’s a sorcerer named Tengen who maintains a barrier with his cursed technique, but every so often he needs a new body (the star plasma vessel) or else he will ascend to a higher plane of being. Geto and Gojo are assigned to protect the star plasma vessel, but there are two religious organizations who look up to Tengen as a higher being and want him to move on to this other plane of existence. As a result, one of them commissions Fushiguro Touji to kill the star plasma vessel Amanai Riko. The purpose of this in the story is to expand on the backstory of Gojo and his only defeat (to Touji who he actually kills) which parallels how he will be beat in the next arc. In addition to this we are also introduced to Yuki Tsukumo who is a sorcerer that seeks to get rid of curses by completely eliminating cursed energy from humans (this sounds unrelated, but makes sense because of Touji who was born with no cursed energy which resulted in a resistance to curses). This contrasts with the fake Geto who is actually trying to revive the “Golden Age'' of jujutsu sorcerers. In addition to this we also see the interesting theme of duty and the role of people who have the ability to do what others cannot. At the beginning of the arc Geto is of the belief that it is the duty of jujutsu sorcerers to protect the non sorcerers who are often looked down upon in the jujutsu world and that goes for him and Gojo especially as they are special grade sorcerers (the highest ranking only four of them). This belief becomes shaky after the events of the star plasma vessel where non sorcerer organizations caused the disaster and he completely turns bad after a similar religious organization in a village leads to two children being beaten and kept in cages in addition to one of his juniors dying on the mission. I personally enjoyed these arcs a lot because we learn a lot more about the world that is set up in the manga and about Gojo who is also an important character. He’s often said to be the strongest and almost every fight involves keeping him out of it because he’s so strong. It was interesting to see him before he gains all of this power and also his first defeat which was at the hands of someone who is almost his polar opposite. If I’m being totally honest I didn’t recognize any of these themes until I sat down to write this review, but I feel like a lot of manga is like that. Many often have themes or situations that are related/parallel to things in real life. I often see lots of complaints about pacing and the manga skipping in weird places which I have to agree with here. I understand the larger purpose of this in relation to other arcs was to introduce Geto to those who haven’t read the prequel, but it still feels a bit out of place. Overall though I thoroughly enjoyed reading this which is why I gave it 5 stars.

    The worst part of the manga is the fact that individual volumes end in the middle of the arc and unfortunately, this for me, damages the enjoyment a little bit. However, this is motherfucking Jujutsu Kaisen and to use modern slang, this series SLAPS. It is clear that Akutami is enjoying the format and he knows what to do and how it works. He does things, which shonen manga does not do too often - parallel panelling, "experimental" issues, very detailed planning and coherent flashbacks...

    So much fun. This volume was great, i laughed so much. The comedy is incredible, every character has a silly side and it's impoosible not to have a good time with it. The story takes us to the past for most of the volume and it was awesome. Good figh scenens and that ending, my goodness.

    This finishes up the last arc and it's so great to see the 3 work as a badass team. Then we get some relax time with a girl crushing on Itadori and it's adorable and funny and a much needed breather from the intensity of the last arc. Then we stop and go back in time to see Gojo and what happened in his past, and it's all pretty great to see how different yet how similar he really is at both parts. I also am eager to see how his power developed into what he can do now. So yeah, another great vol This finishes up the last arc and it's so great to see the 3 work as a badass team.

    things to live for: (1) nobara & megumi pulling ultra-deduction to get yuuji a girlfriend, (2) second-year satosugu constantly on the move maligning people, (3) toji fushiguro losing bets, eating takeout, stabbing high schoolers, & not remembering his son’s name : )

    Soon to be a fantastic shonen So given that Manga is a continuous story, and not defined specifically by the Volumes, I will be splitting the arcs up to how they are described in the wiki and evaluating what I liked and didn't like in each arc. Also, Spoiler Warning I don't make it a habit to spoil the entire series however I do mention points as they reflect my likes and dislikes. Introduction Arc+Cursed Womb Arc- Chapters 1-9 (Essentially Volume 1) Rating: 7.5/10 -As far as introductions go, Soon to be a fantastic shonen So given that Manga is a continuous story, and not defined specifically by the Volumes, I will be splitting the arcs up to how they are described in the wiki and evaluating what I liked and didn't like in each arc. Also, Spoiler Warning I don't make it a habit to spoil the entire series however I do mention points as they reflect my likes and dislikes. Introduction Arc+Cursed Womb Arc- Chapters 1-9 (Essentially Volume 1) Rating: 7.5/10 -As far as introductions go, it was a pretty solid, but otherwise standard Shonen. It doesn't really do anything to break out of the mold of a traditional Shonen. It takes many different aspects from other series. Most notably, Yu Yu Hakusho, Volume 1: Goodbye, Material World!, Bleach, Volume 01 and later it eventually it basically copies it's main character dynamic from Naruto, Vol. 01: Uzumaki Naruto -This isn't to say that it does any of this badly. It's artwork is engaging and very disturbing which is fun to read. Many other series have come into their own despite having very similar Shonen intros. (Black Clover, Vol. 1, My Hero Academia, Vol. 1) However, I thought it was important to mention. -As far as a power system, Jujustu seems fairly versatile. I particularly enjoy Megumi's ability to make contract with cursed spirits. As well as negative energy being fuel for Jutjutsu. It makes it much more interesting knowing that negative energy fuels these cursed people. And that the most powerful would arguably be the most tortured. -Another side note. I appreciate the fact that we're shown the top tier of the verse so early on. It was so uncommon that I actually thought it was going to be a gag at first. The end of this two arc intro was more or less also engaging. I would say it's probably where the author supposed the hook may be. But killing the main character and then reviving him in the next chapter just almost never feels genuine. When Dragonball Vol. 1 did it, it took many volumes for Goku to come back and resurrection was an established concept. In JK, it wasn't and it was immediate. I didn't really think that was well done at all. Cursed Training Arc-Chapters 10-18 Rating: 6/10 -JK continues to remain stagnant through this arc. However, it isn't without it's merits. From my understanding, this arc was more to do two main things. Establish more background for how cursed energy works and establish the top level of what cursed energy can become using Gojo. I think in both accounts it does this, but I'm not always a fan of the way it sets up it's story. And this may be more of a shonen jump issue and not the issue of the author personally. But this series tends to jump around time wise. Where we'll see the first few panels of something exciting and then spend the rest the majority of the chapter explaining how we got here, and then we'll have some dynamic moment or cliffhanger and then they may do this for a chapter or two, or take a few chapter break and then do this again. -I'm not a fan of how yuji is just a straight brawler, it's sort of unique in the verse, but it's not unique enough imo. It's just boring watching someone just punch things all the time. Especially when so many other series currently do this. I don't know why protagnists in shonen don't typically tend to have extensive move or skill sets but it becomes very old very fast. I enjoy how Yuji uses the environment on top of his combat. But it's still not unique enough to be any different and he doesn't really have a fighting style. Cursed tools exist and having him become more used to those seemed like a much cooler concept in my mind then just punching but whatever. Vs. Mahito Arc- Chapters 19-31 Rating: 8/10 -This was the arc that I felt like hooked me the most. We got to get into a characters head, we followed him around, saw his distaste for people, saw how the curses could start manipulating him. I really anticipated this guy becoming the background growing antagonist or even a secondary main protagonist. However, he was swiftly dealt with and I did feel connected to his character. I still couldn't believe that the villain of this arc had swiftly dealt with him as easy as he was. I thought, despite the fact that we were told that a human couldn't return after being mutated, I was still hoping he would and I was pleasantly surprised when he didn't. The author did a very good job of then breaking Yuji's standard Shonen protagonist trope of "I want to save everyone" mindset so early on. Showing that this was in a world where that simply was just not going to work. It was short, but concise. It used that same storytelling aspect I mentioned earlier that I disliked. But I felt it less jarring in this arc. I also enjoy that this series isn't afraid to show battles without the main. They're rare, sure, but still. Kyoto Goodwill Event Arc- Chapters 32-54 Rating: 7/10 -This one was a mixed bag. I enjoyed a lot of the individual matchups and the arc itself was turning out to be a very favorable one. However, I felt like the author had just watched a bit too much My Hero Academia. If I had to put money down. I would suspect that the end of season 1 of the anime will be right here at the end of this arc. It's a school event, two schools were facing off against each other. And then at the height of the contest, the villains invaded and started raising chaos. I'm glad that it was for a purpose, but it felt like everything was pretty contrived. Gojo was kept on the sidelines for obvious plot reasons. And overall it just felt like a muddled experience. For some reason Yuji and Todo became best friends. But then by the end of the arc Yuji wanted nothing to do with him. The characters were inconsistent and the end became just a mash. Let's fight this unknown curse that's able to defeat most of the students but for some reason the student who has the least experience can tag team it with this guy he was shown equal too. Yuji got way too strong, way too fast with little explanation. -However, what I loved about this arc was the expansion into the different type of cursed weapons and Jutjutsu that people can use. Normally, I feel as if the villains powers are more interesting and watching them use their powers in contrast to the heroes. however, I love the jujutsu sorcerers. Specifically the cursed speech user, Panda (cause you gotta love Panda) the Voodoo dolls and even the guy who can use his blood power. Origin Of Obedience Arc- Chapters 55-64 Rating: 7/10 -This one took a bit of time to get rolling. But once it did, it was great. I imagine reading this weekly may have been a slog at first. But I appreciated the connection to the beginning. -Jujutsu Kaisen does characters very well, it's dynamic is much better than say, Narutos. Where it was the Naruto and Sasuke show for the majority of the show, with Sakura tagging along. Kugisaki is one of the better characters and I never feel like she's playing second fiddle to the boys. She has her own wants, and she has her own skill sets that hopefully Akutami continues to show us (like he did in this arc) how she can be a hard counter to a lot of these curses. The curses they faced weren't weak, but the sorcerers definitely had hard counters. -Yuji continues to just...remain uninteresting as far as combat for me. However, his character is spot on. Specifically him and Megumi and how they don't want to worry each other. The scene where Sukuna tells Yuji the truth that Megumi discovered beforehand yet both of them were adamant on not telling the other was fantastic. -Also, at this moment, I think my favorite chapter was 64. Appropriately titled "It's Like That" I think I died laughing at that punchline. Gojo's Past Arc- Chapters 65-79 Rating: 8/10 This was the equivalent of the Kakashi Gaiden story arc of Naruto. Except I probably liked it a lot better. Gojo is JJK's strongest character by far. Seeing a younger more reckless version of him was phenomenal. I love that he's a character that's so strong that the entire sorcerer hierarchy kind of has to work around him. Subsequently we learned about the past of Megumi as well. This was by far much more exciting then I actually thought it would be. Though, I did feel like this arc dragged a bit. It's 14 chapters, I think it could have been 10 at most. It was still highly enjoyable. Shibuya Incident Arc- Chapters 79-??? Rating: 9.5/10 This arc is still currently ongoing. However, right now it is the equivalent of Naruto's Sasuke Retrieval Arc or Bleach's Soul Society Arc. By far the best the series has put out so far. Overall So Far I'm a big fan of the side characters. I'm not a huge fan of Yuji. He's not awful, but I don't love him. I wait to see more. Update Yuji has grown on me as far as the shibuya incident arc. I still like how he fights, I still don't love his own personal character. But he does make me smile from time to time. I am currently up to date of Chapter 132.

    5/5 Stars (%90/100) I liked it much more than the previous one. This volume is the start of Gojo's Past arc in which we learn more about Gojo, Geto, and surprisingly Megumi's father (the one on the cover). I mean Gojo is my favorite character from the moment I've seen him but seeing him together with Geto reminds me of Itadori and Megumi. They're super silly and strong at the same time. The fight scenes were also great and I am curious about the story as well. I think it was a wonderful volume ov 5/5 Stars (%90/100) I liked it much more than the previous one.

    This volume wraps up the Nobara and Itadori vs the Curse Users, Eso and Kechizu. Honestly, this was a fabulous arc showing our main characters growth, but I found it broke up the flow of things that the last couple chapters of this arc took place in a different volume. The anime really fixed this issue by ending the season literally where this arc ends. After this we have a flashback arc, which was very abrupt. I honestly didn't realize it was a flashback into Gojo appeared looking younger-ish. This volume wraps up the Nobara and Itadori vs the Curse Users, Eso and Kechizu.

I honestly didn't realize it was a flashback into Gojo appeared looking younger-ish. Thus, why this arc only gets 4 stars. However, the big reveal here is that Geto and Gojo both attended Jujutsu High together, and were in the same year. So why does no one think he's behind the crap that's going on now? Maybe he 'dies' during the mission they are on, maybe something else goes down, but it seems odd that his name has never come up as they have been trying to figure out who is pulling the strings behind all of the odd things that have been happening. Also, we get to see Megumi's dad, who seems pretty OP himself. I don't remember if it was mentioned before, but it turns out that Toji was a member of the Zenin clan, which makes Megumi a part of it as well to a degree. However, there is clearly bad blood between his dad and his family, because he has taken his wife's name, and has become a sorcerer assassin. This volume ends on a cliffhanger, which is annoying, and only makes me want to read the next volume even more, because this series is really heating up.

    4.5 stars I really loved this volume! Probably my favorite thus far. I loved the back story for Gojo. The hint of romance. The action was on point. But, I really hate the transitions between scenes. I feel like I am missing a chunk of the chapter because we are one place and then jump to another so quickly. There wasn't even an indication that we were taking a look into the past, no "10 years ago" or something like that. I don't mind filling in the blanks, but it happens a lot.

We are also introduced to another baddy, Megumi's father Toji who is referred to as the Sorcerer Killer. The art is still well done and the action scenes are a lot of fun. This is the volume where the first season of the anime stopped. So if and when there is a season 2 it would start with the Gojo's Past Arc presumably.

Gojo is the definition of overpowered at the beginning of the series so it's nice getting to see what he was like before he got there. And Geto has been a very mysterious character so far, only showing up to have cryptic exchanges with Mahito (see my point about plot above). Seeing the two working together while learning more about Tengen was great.

    The fight with the two brother curses comes to an end and Yuji is now up to 4/20 fingers eaten. (though Sukuna technically at two of those) Sukuna is teasing/tormenting Yuji with the truth that he's the reason the fingers are resonating and all these curses are hurting people, but Yuji is pretending to not know. BUT! That's not the fun part of the volume. The fun part begins halfway through at chapter 65 when we get a lengthy flashback to when Gojo was a second year little snot.

There's also a first year Nanami and a good guy Geto (Maybe we'll get to see why he turned bad). Other than seeing the fan favorite characters in their younger days, there's a newcomer: the dude on the cover. Let me say right now, it ends on a cliffhanger and I'm not okay with it. (view spoiler)[Like, I know Gojo survives the impalement because he's still around but...HOW?! (hide spoiler)]

    How did people survive this volume?! It's got all the characters the fandom is apparently thirsting over and ok OK I GET IT. We close the fight involving the special grades in the first few chapters and get thrown into the past making me wonder, why are we learning about this specific case? I guess for one, it's a reveal on who one of the bad guys is and why he took so many precautions on keeping invisible but also, maybe there's something else?! We also meet a new character and just, I'm drooli How did people survive this volume?! It's got all the characters the fandom is apparently thirsting over and ok OK I GET IT.

That said, it's a pretty slow volume that feels a bit abrupt (pacing) but is also full of young Gojo being a prick (woah, he ruthless!!) and...Okinawa?! I half wondered if this was some filler chapter but uhm, no, it's actual plot?! Just feels like crack part of the time, lol The volume does end on QUITE the cliffhanger and my brain is like, HOW?! So many questions!!

    I'm always curious of ways to introduce flashbacks in interesting ways and I think heading straight into one is a risky move. That's not to say this isn't a good volume. I think for the first time, Gege focused more on the narrative elements of the plot over the character development. It's definitely a choice, but I think it really makes you wonder and ask more questions than it answers. I guess it's just weird finding out Gojo is a fan of Digimon while also discovering more backstory and lore of I'm always curious of ways to introduce flashbacks in interesting ways and I think heading straight into one is a risky move.

There's a lot thrown at you in technical terms of why someone's important and it does feel like filler in the best way possible. Still probably one of the weaker volumes, but that's just me.

    This volume started off great. It concluded the events of the previous volume and had a great comedic one-shot chapter as a breather episode. However, then came the new story arc and my internal biases groaned. I've never been a fan of the obligatory flashback arc, which many writers use as a means of fleshing out the characters of teachers, upperclassmen, etc. I can stomach it, but I've never enjoyed it since it obviously distracts from the main characters.

    I was surprised when Gege released this flashback arc. I mean, who expected this?!?! Anyways, even though the pacing was a little bothering, I still enjoyed this volume! I'm really intrigued of how and why did Geto became a curse user and who is this dad of Fushiguro that they keep on talking about. This volume has 2 of my all-time favorite panels, 2 favorite chapters and also the cover is one of my favorites. (the last panel from this volume [ch 70] was so funny lmaooo) 9/10 I was surprised when Gege released this flashback arc. I mean, who expected this?!?!

    After a funny wrap up to the previous arc, here comes a trip to memory lane! This volume gives substance and depth to the characters Gojou Satoru and Getou Suguru. It also gives a peek to some other characters and their relations to the characters in the present timeline. It's an enjoyable read nonetheless but also, can't wait to read some more of the "present". Can't wait! After a funny wrap up to the previous arc, here comes a trip to memory lane!

    It's a great manga to get my mind off of things. I'm still so confused about powers, probably cause I only watched the anime. I feel sorry for Megumi, his dad was a prick. Also, I'm still really shocked when a mission fails and an important character dies. I can totally feel the shift in the story, like its defo getting darker.

Gojo lowkey a manchild but we love him. Love the glasses look on him as well. -geto's power is basically a combination of megumi and idatori's. He eats curses to tame them. I wasn't as impressed as it reminded me of those two characters' powers. more like a 3.5 -cover is sick but this wasn't really toji's volume, so I'm glad I got my hands on 9 instead. -just a lot of buildup for the fights.

    The fight with Nobara and Yuji comes to a close in an epic fashion, followed by a chapter of... the complications of teenage dating featuring Itadori? And the volume ends as we get an arc about a young Gojo! Young Gojo is a low point as while I do love him and love seeing a younger version of him, the story skips around a lot and only just starts getting into the meat of it when the volume ends.
