Plot Details

A curse sneaks up on Yuji

Yuji encounters a curse inside the abandoned building.

Yuji eats ice cream and waits with Megumi at Harajuku Station. He points out how strange it is for a class to have only three students. Megumi explains that this is due to the rarity of Jujutsu Sorcerers. Gojo sensei meets up with his students, pleased to see Yuji has received his new uniform.

Meanwhile, Nobara tries to score a modeling gig to no avail. She feels interrupted by Yuji and Megumi, and harshly judges both of them. Gojo sensei hypes up Yuji and Nobara with a promise of a tour of tokyo. However, he takes them to an abandoned house near a cemetery that has attracted a curse.

Satoru sends in Yuji and Megumi to exorcise the spirit as a field test to gauge their abilities. He tells Yuji not to use Sukuna's power and forces Megumi to remain behind. The point of the trial is to focus on testing Nobara's capabilities.

Nobara's hammer & nails

Nobara is put to the test!

Once inside, Nobara forces Yugi to split up and he's suddenly attacked by a curse. He manages to slice the curse using the [[Slaughter Demon] knife given to him by Gojo sensei. Using his gifted physical talents, Yuji is able to easily best the curse.

Satoru already knows that Yuji is a little crazy. He's a normal teenager who doesn't hesitate to slay curses. Today he wants to see how crazy Nobara can get. Nobara encounters mannequins possessed by a curse. She uses her tools and attacks, only to discover that curses in the city like Tokyo are much more powerful than ones from her hometown on the countryside.
