Jujutsu Kaisen anime series will feature:
Junichi Suwabe will voice Sukuna Ryōmen: A high-grade curse who is considered to be the undisputed ‘King of Curses’. According to legend, Sukuna was a demon resembling a human with four arms who appeared during the prime era of sorcery. Sorcerers of this time period found that they were unable to fully exorcise him, so they resorted to cutting up his 20 fingers and storing them as cursed charms, hoping that one day these charms would be destroyed, and as a result, he would truly be defeated. Currently, he is the “guest” of Yūji Itadori. He has taken an interest in seeing Megumi Fushiguro achieve his full potential. His goal is to gain complete control over Yūji’s body and go out on a killing spree. He has an immense amount of curse power, and it is estimated that his full strength is on par with or even greater than that of Satoru Gojō, though Satoru claims otherwise.
Junya Enoki will voice Yūji Itadori: A 15-year-old athlete who joins his school’s Occult Club to avoid the track team. After finding and opening a box containing a cursed charm resembling a rotting finger, his school is attacked by phantom-like creatures known as Curses. In order to protect his friends, he consumes the rotting finger and becomes possessed by a Curse known as Ryoumen Sukuna. He later joins the Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College under the tutelage of Satoru Gojō, where he is placed under a sort of death sentence, which has been suspended until he consumes all of Sukuna’s fingers in order to kill himself and Sukuna at the same time.
Yūma Uchida will voice Megumi Fushiguro: A sorcerer studying in first year at the Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College under the tutelage of Satoru Gojou. He meets Yūji when trying to locate a high-grade cursed charm talisman at his high school. He is the one that convinces Satoru to try to save Yūji from his execution after his possession by Sukuna. He uses his curse power to create spirits out of his own shadows to exorcise Curses. He has been noted to have high potential as a sorcerer by several other powerful people, including Sukuna himself.
Asami Seto will voice Nobara Kugisaki: A sorcerer studying in first year at the Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College under the tutelage of Satoru Gojou. She transferred to the college so that she could live in Tokyo without any expenses. She meets Yūji Itadori and Megumi Fushiguro during her first official mission as a sorcerer. She uses a charm weapon hammer and nails infused with her curse power to exorcise Curses.
Yūichi Nakamura as Satoru Gojō: A sorcerer working as a teacher in the Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College. He teaches Yūji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro and Nobara Kugisaki. He convinces his superiors at the college to keep Yūji alive until he consumes all of Sukuna’s fingers. Even though his title of ‘The Strongest’ is self-proclaimed, most allies and enemies alike never actually dispute the title and generally consider him to be one of the most dangerous people alive. As a result, he is widely respected and venerated by sorcerers, even by those in the college’s sister school in Kyoto, and holds high influence in the sorcery world. He uses his curse power to control the space around him in innumerable ways.
