Jujutsu Kaisen

Oct 31, 2020

This is one of the few mangas I've ever binged from start to current chapter (~127 as of this writing).

There's something oddly addictive about this series. It could be the pacing of the story, or it could be the whimsical nature of the characters. Each character has unique qualities about them that make them deeply interesting. I find myself curious to learn more about even the side characters.

Nothing feels wasted in this manga. The conversations with curses always reveal some kind of deeper philosophical conflict and each fight scene is paced and fits perfectly with the story. There's just enough action and character development without either dragging on for forever.

The art is a bit different. It's not super crazy unique, but it's different enough from the typical moe/pretty style that it really lends itself well to the overall mood of the story. The only reason the art rating wasn't higher was that occasionally the perspectives and proportions were just slightly off. But it's not egregious or bad by any means.

I learned about Jujutsu Kaisen because of the anime (which by the way does the manga pretty good justice - it's a very good adaptation). I just had to jump into the manga and keep seeing what happened next. I don't regret it, and I don't think you will either.
