Yuji is a high school goer who lived with his grandfather and avoided the track team because of the time it will consume, though he has the talent for the sport. Instead, he joined the Occult club, because it gave certain freedom in attendance.
He received the two life mantra uttered by his grandfather, while the latter was on his deathbed: “always help others” and “die surrounded by people”, this was interpreted as everyone should receive a good death, by Yuji. Then he becomes a host of curses, to protect his school from the evil powers of Sukuna, which was attracted by the rotten finger unboxed by his friends of the Occult club.
He was required to be exorcised, but the sorcerer Meguna’s teacher Saturo Gojo wanted to take him to Tokyo Prefecture so that he consumes Sukuna’s all fingers, killing Sukuna totally.

Their weapons are mainly the uniquely and deceptively simple style called Boogie Woogie by the former, while Black Flash used by Itadori, used to hit the spirit.
Their fight ends with the arrival of Gojo and the removal of the curtain above them. On the other hand, Juzo Kumiya is confronted by Gakuganji. And Nobara and Mai’s help Utahime to battle Haruta. Gojo goes to tackle Juzo as he knows Aoi and Itadori will be fine for now. Juzo’s limbs get destroyed by the pure power of his spell, which makes Hanami flee.
Then Gojo mixes Cursed Technique Lapse: Blue and Cursed Technique Reversal: Red together, creating Hollow Purple, to destroy everything on the way, thinking Haruta might also run away, though no sorcerer could be sure of his fate.
