Yuta Okkotsu’s Entry in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2’s last episode leaves a lot of questions unsolved. However, those concerns pale in comparison to the anticipation aroused by Yuta Okkotsu’s appearance in the last episode. Once scared and reserved, Yuta has grown into a self-assured Jujutsu practitioner while maintaining a high level of compassion for those around him. 

Yuta has returned to Japan and is seeking Yuji’s blood. The fact that Sukuna’s outburst caused his friend Toge Inumaki to lose an arm makes Yuta feel resentful towards Yuji Itadori. The return of one of the most adored characters in the series, who hasn’t appeared since Jujutsu Kaisen 0, has left fans in awe and disbelief and they can’t wait to see his performance in the next season of the series which is already announced.
