Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the many current banes of my existence.

Much like a rollercoaster ride, it takes you through a world where curses are as real as they are terrifying and the only thing standing between them and us are the Jujutsu Sorcerers. Imagine going to bed thinking monsters under your bed were just a child's tale only to find out that those are very much real and deadly. That's the world of Jujutsu Kaisen

Based on a manga series by the same name, Jujutsu Kaisen has quickly become a fan favorite. The story follows Yuji Itadori, a high schooler with more brawn than brain, who gets thrown into the deep end of this supernatural pool. Yuji’s life turns upside down when he swallows a cursed object - a gross finger - and not only becomes a magnet for all things creepy and dangerous but has one of the most powerful and ancient curses living inside him.

The show is a mixed bag of jaw-dropping fight scenes, spiced up with some truly bizarre humor. One moment you're on the edge of your seat watching an epic and well-animated battle, and the next, you're laughing out loud at a ridiculous joke. The characters are as diverse as they are quirky. There's my perfect anime husband, Gojo Satoru - a sorcerer so powerful and so cool he could probably make wearing a paper bag look trendy, not to mention the sheer amount of power this man possesses. Then there’s Nobara Kugisaki, a girl who's as fierce with a hammer and nails as she is with her words. Paired up with the moody Megumi and Yuji, these three form a trio that's as dysfunctional as it is endearing. Their bond, filled with friendly banter and occasional disagreements, adds a layer of wholesome to the otherwise dark theme of the anime.

What sets Jujutsu Kaisen apart from many other anime is how it masterfully blends horror elements with humor and drama, creating a unique flavor that's both exhilarating and relatable. It's not just about the big fights - it's also about the little struggles and the friendships that bloom in the face of adversity. Whether it’s dealing with personal demons (both literally and metaphorically) or just trying to get someone’s number at a diner, there's never a dull moment. The anime brings a fresh twist to the supernatural genre, wrapping it up in a package of stunning animation and a ridiculously addictive soundtrack. 

Let’s take a look at the second arc: Hidden Inventory and the Shibuya Incident and talk about five specific episodes that just hit the nail on the head for me.
