Famous Portuguese football player, Cristiano Ronaldo surprised the internet after announcing his favorite anime, according to am X(formerly Twitter) account named Celebs Arab.
Celeb Arabs quoted Cristiano Ronaldo in the post and said: “Jujutsu Kaisen is my favorite anime,” resulting in many users praising the football player for his taste in shows while simultaneously introducing part of his fanbase to the world of anime.
There is not much news on how Celebs Arab got this information but the post was generally received positively by Arabs from all over the Middle East and Africa.
Cristiano Ronaldo loves Jujutsu Kaisen!
Comments on the post included people saying that they will start watching anime just for Ronaldo and praised the football star for his taste as Jujutsu Kaisen has been the talk of the anime community this season for its stunning visuals and incredible storyline.
Although it’s in its most devastating arc which has everybody in the fandom crying and Mappa’s horrible treatment of its animators and employees, the show has topped this season’s charts.
What is Jujutsu Kaisen about?
If you’re unfamiliar with the world of anime or Jujutsu Kaisen, Don’t worry since we’ve got you covered with everything you need to know about the beloved series and where to watch it.
Jujutsu Kaisen is a manga (Japanese comic) by Gege Akutami, first serialized in Shonen Jump (A Japanese comic book magazine for teens, AKA Shueisha) which was received so well in the community that it received a total of two seasons and a movie with season 2 currently airing by Studio Mappa.
Studio Mappa is behind many of today’s beloved anime including Chainsaw Man, Attack on Titan which has come to an end recently, Jujutsu Kaisen, and more but it’s been recently under fire as mentioned above leaving animators on tight deadlines which resulted in the reduction of production quality.
Take in mind that even though season 2’s production went down slightly, the anime is as stunning as the first season.
My Anime List describes Jujutsu Kaisen as follows:
“Idly indulging in baseless paranormal activities with the Occult Club, high schooler Yuuji Itadori spends his days at either the clubroom or the hospital, where he visits his bedridden grandfather.
However, this leisurely lifestyle soon takes a turn for the strange when he unknowingly encounters a cursed item. Triggering a chain of supernatural occurrences, Yuuji finds himself suddenly thrust into the world of Curses—dreadful beings formed from human malice and negativity—after swallowing the said item, revealed to be a finger belonging to the demon Sukuna Ryoumen, the King of Curses.
Yuuji experiences first-hand the threat these Curses pose to society as he discovers his newfound powers. Introduced to the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School, he begins to walk down a path from which he cannot return—the path of a Jujutsu sorcerer.”
