When Yuji Itadori entered the Tokyo Metropolitan Magic Technical College as a student, Megumi explained that there were also second-year students enrolled in the academy. After telling him about Maki, Inumaki and Panda, his partner told him briefly that Yuta was not in Japan like this: “There is one more, Okkotsu-senpai, who is the only one I can openly respect, but he is abroad right now.”

Gojo Satoru also mentions Yuta in passing during a conversation with Itadori., comparing the potential of the Sukuna vessel with that of Okkotsu. In addition, Gojo recognizes that Yuta is one of the wizards who could surpass him in the future, becoming the strongest of his generation among the experts of the cursed energy.

Training hard or lasting in training

At the end of Jujutsu Kaisen 0Yuta Okkotsu is going to train abroad to Miguel’s homeland, a former ally of Suguru Geto during the Hundred Demons Night Parade. Gojo forced Miguel to join them, and it appears that he also entrusted Yuta’s training to him during the later events of the movie. Miguel, despite the fact that he does not seem so because of his name, is originally from a town of sorcerers in Africa.

In fact, during the post-credits scene of the film, Miguel and Yuta are seen enjoying a dish that “tastes of Kenya”, something that seems to be a reference to Miguel’s homeland.
