This is what Jujutsu Kaisen is about:
Hardship, regret, shame: the negative feelings that spring from people's hearts become curses that take root in all of our lives. And the only thing that can cast out a curse is another curse. Yūji spends his days like any other student. But one day his friend is attacked by curses and to save him he eats the finger of the two-faced Sukuna. Henceforth, he shares his body with him and joins the Jujutsu Academy to fight against curses. Thus begins the story of the boy who became a curse to cast out a curse.
