The story is about Yuji Itadori, who joins his school’s Occult Club. He meets Megumi, a sorcerer who tells him about a cursed talisman. As Yuji’s friends at the club unseal the talisman, a rotting finger begins to unleash creatures called Curses.
They begin to cause troubles and feed on the sorcerers’ magic. To protect Megumi, Yuji consumes the finger, becoming the host of Ryoumen Sukuna, a Curse.
Although Yuji is still in control of his body, because the curse is very powerful, all the sorcerers find it necessary to exorcise him with Sukuna inside.
