You probably all already know the most classic anime series, among which we can highlight great productions such as dragonball, Naruto either one piece, but these are those who know the whole world. We are currently witnessing the birth of a new generation of famous anime. If we started now to name all those who make up the list of the new generation, we would never end, but if we can tell you that one of these is the anime we are going to talk about today: Jujutsu Kaisen.
A shonen fighting anime with a leading trio made up of two men and a woman, as well as a middle-aged teacher. If you have seen the anime of the most famous ninja in the world, this description will probably be familiar to you, but the truth is that the ninja himself Jujutsu Kaisen also matches her. This is the reason why there has been quite a bit of ridicule, branding this aforementioned series as a blatant copy of the work of Masashi Kishimoto. Even so, over time he has managed to put aside this absurd controversy, to introduce us to the most interesting stories and characters.
Among these aforementioned characters, we can highlight one in particular, which is very intriguing for those who have only seen the anime, as well as familiar to those who have also seen the movie. We are talking about, neither more nor less than, Yuta Okkotsu, a most interesting characterwith several curiosities that we will tell you next.
His rare appearance in the first season of the anime
Let’s start with probably the most important thing. If you have only seen the anime, it is likely that you do not even know this character, and it is that he is mentioned once, and his image also appears a couple of times, but not much emphasis is placed on his figure. Luckily, to let us know this powerful sorcerer arrived Jujutsu Kaisen 0, the film that we received some time after the end of the broadcast of the first season of the anime. In it, we had Yuta as the protagonist, and we were shown his initial path to become a very powerful sorcerer.
You will wonder what is the justification given for not appearing in the first season, and we can say that we are talking about a somewhat cheap excuse, but convincing at the same time. In essence, it is explained to us several times that he is studying abroad, which is why for which he has not yet been able to coincide with Yuji Itadoriour protagonist, and recipient of sukuna.
To see Yuta in the anime we will have to wait a little longer, although it is not clear if we will be able to see him in the following seasoneither it will be in a later one.
A distant relative of Gojo Satoru
Gojo Satoru is undoubtedly one one of the most powerful sorcerers in Jujutsu Kaisen, not to say directly the most powerful. Several times he has shown, both in the manga and in the anime, why he is equally adored and feared. It must not be easy to have him as a familiar, and the truth is that, believe it or not, Yuta is something like a distant cousin of Gojo, something that is revealed at the end of the movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
Now it is easier to understand where that strength that Yuta shows at the end of this same movie comes from, defeating, and practically killing, a rather powerful sorcerer, and that he was a youth companion of Gojo himself. It seems that this entire bloodline has exceptional power, or at least this has been true of the two members of it that we have met so far.
This is your favorite food
A classic curiosity when we talk about anime characters is related to their culinary tastes. It may seem silly, but the truth is that you can learn a lot about a person if you know the foods they like the most, or the ones they hate the most. Specifically, Yuta Okkotsu’s favorite dish is cabbage with salt and sesame oila dish that sounds very strange to us, and even unappetizing, but in Japanese culture it can be a delicacy.
In addition, we also know that the dish he doesn’t like (even though it’s not really a dish) is the fatty part of the meatbeing that in this case many of us can identify ourselves.
Popular, but not very
It is quite common for the different manga to launch popularity polls, so that the mangaka can find out which are the most popular characters in their story. Jujutsu Kaisen could not be less. Coming to the point, Yuta Okkotsu ranked 12th in the first popularity pollwhile for the second it went up a few positions, ranking eighth.
This shows that, although he is loved by fans, there are several characters who are much more loved. Even so, it is possible that the momentum of the film that he has starred in will manage to climb several notches, although that remains to be seen.
The great asset of his team
In the first season of the anime we were able to see the classic exchange festivals, which are held every year by the schools of wizardry in Tokyo and Kyoto. In 2017 Yuta participated for the first time, and it turned out to be a great asset for his team, although to tell the truth I did this against his will.
This is not reflected either in the anime or in the manga, but from the dialogues of other characters we know that Yuta unintentionally released Rikawhich resulted in his team being awarded a landslide victory.
With this you have already been able to know several very interesting curiosities of Yuta Okkotsu, one of the characters most enigmatic, as well as powerful, of the entire Jujutsu Kaisen franchise. Hopefully over time we’ll be able to learn more about him thanks to him being given room to shine in the anime.
