Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 1 Discussion & Gallery
One of the Animes I decided to follow this Fall season was Jujutsu Kaisen – a mysterious/horror story that shows great promise. Right off the bat, the first episode was quite exciting, where the 20 minutes went by without me realizing it. In fact, I was ready to watch episode two if it was already available.
Obviously, episode one is used to introducing both the main character and the story, which they did in an excellent manner. We follow Yuuji’s daily life, including school, activities of the supernatural club that he’s a part of, and visiting his grandpa at the hospital. Simultaneously, we get to see Megumi searching for a cursed object. This works quite well, as we can easily understand the foundation for the main character’s personality while getting an overview of the world we’re stepping into.
Another great addition to this episode is how we can see two different transformations of the main character – one regarding his personality, and the other about his power. Within the first few minutes, we already know that Yuuji is a good guy who considers the people around him. But his grandfather’s last words really change the way Yuuji’s going to live from now on. He will no longer stay in the shadows and will put his life at risk to save other people. This is what leads to Yuuji’s second transformation. To save his classmates, he fights against the demon previously sealed inside the cursed object that Megumi was looking for. However, since the monster is quite strong (and will become even stronger if he consumes the cursed item), Ryuuji decides to eat the cursed finger himself. This offers him great power, but at the same time, transforms him into a demi-human.
In a nutshell, I’m thrilled with Jujutsu Kaisen’s first episode. I really think it will be a great Anime, and I can’t wait to watch episode two. I’m curious to see what he’s going to happen next, and I hope the dark-ish vibes will remain throughout the season. Your boy loves a good horror Anime, after all. What about you? Have you watched Jujutsu Kaisen’s first episode? What are your feelings about it? Tell me down below ?
I’ll be adding new galleries throughout the season as new episodes come out. Enjoy! If you have a website and want to use one of my images, feel free to do so. I’ll be happy if you backlink to this article, but it’s not mandatory.
