As we open this episode, we do so not with Itadori, but of some other high school kid. One who is targeted and bullied by his classmates for no real reason other than they find it funny. In fact, we get a quick crash course as to why people suck and why this kid hates everyone around him. While getting bullied, a teacher spots it happening out of the window and does nothing. The kid is obviously frustrated by his own life and wants some way, any way to lash out back at life.
We’re at the early stages of this series still; where it has me on the hook, but I’m still trying to feel out whether it’s got the strength to reel me in or not. At this point, I’m certainly on board for the show’s stellar fight animation and the ever loveable charm of a good-hearted doofus protag. But for it to keep my attention it needs to really make me care.
I’m doing episode reviews again. This was the series I decided to do it with, fingers crossed it’s the right choice. After the tease that ended the third episode of Jujutsu Kaisen, episode four wastes no time in jumping right into the middle of a new challenge for our first year students. Starting with our main trio; Itadori, Fushiguro and Kugisaki outside of a juvenile correctional facility in which a “Curse Womb” has suddenly appeared. And this time it really is down to them as Bowie-Sensei is nowhere to be seen.
