    Lowdown:

    A boy fights... for "the right death."

    Hardship, regret, shame: the negative feelings that humans feel become Curses that lurk in our everyday lives. The Curses run rampant throughout the world, capable of leading people to terrible misfortune and even death. What's more, the Curses can only be exorcised by another Curse.

    Itadori Yuji is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life. One day, to save a friend who has been attacked by Curses, he eats the finger of the Double-Faced Specter, taking the Curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares one body with the Double-Faced Specter. Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Gojou Satoru, Itadori is admitted to the Tokyo Metropolitan Technical High School of Sorcery, an organization that fights the Curses... and thus begins the heroic tale of a boy who became a Curse to exorcise a Curse, a life from which he could never turn back.

    Haven't seen any action shows in a long long while but I might jump into this one. Looks promising plus Mappa on their game face.

    The show has been confirmed for 24 episodes. First episode was pretty good for a shonen-esque show. The action visuals are gonna be a stunner.

    Nice!

    A bit of xfiles vibe here :D.

    Only downside is a bit of overpowered overkill at the moment. But it should be interesting to get more background. Also the occult group seems to be a good mix.

    this is a fun series. And now a new member lady coming! Wonder if they'll end up in a love triangle? Also will we see the occult club again? That group dynamic was fun. If they could incorporate them as investigators I think that would be a good way to go.

    Definitely :)

    There are moments that are like taboo tatoo with wild sweeping camera moves that follow a crazy jump attack like matrix. Those moments are special :) nothing like following a pile driver move from start to finish without a jump cut.

    The girl almost promises to be interesting. I just hope they don't give her too uch of an edge. It was so fun when they both geeked out on being in Tokyo for the first time. But it seems like they want to keep her aloof or distant a little bit. Hopefully that's just at the beginning and they can work in at least a good friendship into it. If they could at least end up like scully and mulder in X-Files with the hints of a relationship without going full out ill be happy :)
