MY RATING: 9 out of 10

Violent misfortunes frequently occur around 16-year-old Yuuta Okkotsu, a timid victim of high school bullying. Yuuta is saddled with a monstrous curse, a power that dishes out brutal revenge against his bullies. Rika Orimoto, Yuuta’s curse, is a shadow from his tragic childhood and a potentially lethal threat to anyone who dares wrong him.

Yuuta’s unique situation catches the attention of Satoru Gojou, a powerful sorcerer who teaches at Tokyo Jujutsu High. Gojou sees immense potential in Yuuta, and he hopes to help the boy channel his deadly burden into a force for good. Yet Yuuta struggles to find his place among his talented classmates: the selectively mute Toge Inumaki, weapons expert Maki Zenin, and Panda.

Yuuta clumsily utilizes Rika on missions with the other first-year students, but the grisly aftermath of Rika’s tremendous displays of power draws the interest of the calculating curse user Suguru Getou. As Getou strives to claim Rika’s strength and use it to eliminate all non-jujutsu users from the world, Yuuta fights alongside his friends to stop the genocidal plot.

I rarely enjoy watching anime movies, except when it’s from a series that I’ve been following and loved. That said, I didn’t have any expectations at all when I decided to watch this movie in the cinema last week. It’s been a week already, but everytime I think about this movie, I feel super giddy because I really enjoyed it.

The setting for this movie is still the same, but with a different focus of character. It happened a year before the main characters from the series came to the academy, so we get to see more of Maki, Panda & Inumaki which were currently in their first year interacting with the new student who is cursed. I think the progress of the characters’ relationship with Yuta (the new student) was done pretty well in this movie.

Except for being cursed, I think Yuta’s story was simple but they made it very entertaining and the conclusion was really good. Mannn, I really love how they did it.

Another thing I found exceptional in this movie was the art and the music! The fight scenes were very good, especially the fight between Yuta and Geto. I’m telling you, MAPPA definitely didn’t disappoint in this movie.

It’s just a very short review, but I hope I was able to convince you that this movie was definitely a must watch, *wink.
