Recently, in chapter #243, he reappeared and showed his strength by defeating the series’ main villain, Kenjaku. This happened because Kenjaku got too absorbed in a battle with Takaba, leaving himself vulnerable to Yuta’s attack.

Yuta’s success was possible due to Takaba’s cursed technique, but the important thing is that Yuta delivered the final blow to Kenjaku. With the loss of Gojo, a powerful sorcerer, the others needed a new leader. Yuta, being Gojo’s promising student, seems to be the one who can fill that role.

In summary, Yuta, the original protagonist, is back in action in Jujutsu Kaisen, taking down the main villain and potentially becoming a crucial figure for the sorcerers after the loss of Gojo.

Jujutsu Kaisen Reminds Fans Who the Strongest Sorcerer Is

Originally, Jujutsu Kaisen didn’t start with Yuji swallowing Sukuna’s finger. It began as a limited series about Yuta Okkotsu in a story called “Cursed Child,” later republished as Chapter 0 in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga and made into the film Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie by Sunghoo Park.


This story was so popular that the creator Gege Akutami and publisher Shueisha decided to expand it into the ongoing series.

In the original story, Yuta was set to become an incredibly powerful sorcerer, recognized by even Gojo. However, a new series focusing on different characters gained more popularity, pushing Yuta into the background.


With Gojo’s sudden death as the last surviving Special Grade Sorcerer, Yuta, despite wanting a quieter role, couldn’t avoid the spotlight. As shown in Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter #243, his powers, especially now that he’s resolved his issues with Rika, are unmatched.

This confrontation showcased Yuta’s skill and understanding of sorcery. He targeted Kenjaku’s head because he knew, due to Kenjaku’s mastery of reverse cursed technique, that decapitation was the only way for an instant kill.


Yuta’s victory highlights his potential as a strong sorcerer in Jujutsu Kaisen. It remains to be seen if the author, Gege Akutami, will further develop Yuta’s role in the story. Nonetheless, this quick defeat of Kenjaku establishes Yuta as a formidable force in the Jujutsu Kaisen world.
