“Your comprehensive guide to Jujutsu Kaisen, the ‘Spooky Naruto'”
If you’re unfamiliar with Jujutsu Kaisen, think of it as a spooky version of Naruto. Created by Gege Akutami, this series shares some striking similarities with the beloved ninja saga. You’ll find a knuckle-headed protagonist with spiky hair, a brooding rival with a troubled past, a fiery girl torn between love and vengeance, and a charismatic sensei who balances goofing around with kicking serious ass. The twist is that instead of chakra, they harness cursed energy—a spookier premise indeed!
To embark on the Jujutsu Kaisen journey, here’s a recommended reading order. Start by picking up Jujutsu Kaisen (or simply ask for “Spooky Naruto” at the library), and dive into volumes 1 through 17. Whether you choose to devour them in one sitting or pace yourself, the choice is yours. Just bear in mind that the manga is still ongoing, so patience is key to witnessing the story’s full conclusion. In the meantime, you can always catch up on regular Naruto.
If you’re hungry for more Jujutsu Kaisen content, there are spinoffs and prequels to explore. Here’s a rundown:
- Jujutsu Kaisen 0: This prequel delves into the dramatic backstories of key characters. Luckily, it’s available as a single volume, making it an easily digestible addition to your collection.
- Jujutsu Kaisen: Sorcery Fight Official Fanbook: This comprehensive guidebook offers extra insights into the series, including character profiles, world-building details, and bonus manga chapters and illustrations. A must-have for fans seeking a deeper understanding of the Jujutsu Kaisen universe.
