The Jujutsu Kaisen: What is it About?
It follows the life of a physically unfit and clumsy guy Yūji Itadori who doesn’t like the sports team of his school due to the commitment it needs, though he has the potential and talent for it. Instead, he joins the Occult club because of the freedom it allows him to visit his grandfather, who is on his deathbed. The main teaching his grandfather gives him is that to always help people and to die surrounded by people. In short, Yūji understands the need for a “proper death” for everybody.
He is then confronted by sorcerer Megumi Fushiguro, who tells him about a cursed talisman: a rotting finger. It is unboxed by Yūji’s schoolmates, which attracts a negative curse on the school. Lacking the magical powers to defeat the curse, Yūji swallows the finger and becomes the host of a powerful curse Sukuna, in order to save Megumi and his friends.
Yūji is then required to be exercised by the sorcerers because of the evilness of Sukuna’s charm. Though possessed, however, Yūji remains in control over his body mostly. Then, Meguna’s teacher Saturo Gojo takes him to Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College in order to postpone the death of Yūji so that he can swallow all the fingers of Sukuna, by which Sukuna can be killed totally.

Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 17 Recap
Let’s look into the spoilers of the previous episode: Mali’s strength and ability can be understood by Kasumi when Kasumi tried getting into Mali’s range of battle while their fight. She hoped her katana would function better than the spears of the rest of the girls. But that’s totally broken into halves by Mali. On the other side, there’s a battle between Nobara and Momo, where Momo states that the female sorcerers are only just strong, unlike the males who are also perfect, something which the females must try to be. Nobara almost defeated Momo but lost consciousness getting hit by Mai’s bullet.
The twins Mai and Maki start fighting after the latter approached. Being left behind in a bad environment to grow up in, the former has intense anger towards her sister. In fact, Mai was dragged into being a sorcerer due to Mali’s actions. Maki gets shot by an extra bullet, created by Mai’s construction technique, which gets caught midway by Maki, almost defeating her sister. We can perhaps see Hanami and his team invading Jujutsu High. Stay tuned for more updates!!
