The once sweet Rika has manifested into a monstrous, powerful entity that has been fiercely protecting him.
After an accident that sets Rika on bloodshed, Yuta is apprehended by Jujutsu sorcerers–people who counteract against beings like Rika. Yuta wishes to be isolated as he does not want to hurt anyone else but one of his apprehenders, Gojo Satoru, the strongest sorcerer, instead offers him to enroll in the Jujutsu High to learn manifest Rika for good.
