The JJK manga has reached a thrilling point, and fans worry about their favorite characters being dead, including Yuta. So, what does the manga have in store for him?
Yuta Okkotsu is a major supporting character in the Jujutsu Kaisen series.
He was the main character of its prequel series, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, where he was introduced as a special-grade human.
Further, during the prequel, Yuta is haunted by his late childhood friend, Rika.
But as the story goes on, he is able to control the immense power that the spirit holds.
Yuta is currently a second-year student and works as a jujutsu sorcerer.
In addition, he has come to play a notable role in the recent events of the story, and readers wonder what happens next.
[SPOILER] Is Yuta Dead In the Latest JJK Manga?
With the recent fight between Gojo and Sukuna, the JJK manga has reached an exciting level.
Among the many witnesses to this fight is Yuta Okkotsu, whom Gojo mentored.
So, the answer to the question is no, Yuta is not dead in the latest JJK series.
Following the events of JJK 0, Yuta went overseas to study and become stronger.
Further, he was still overseas by the time the Shibuya Incident began.
During his stay there, Yuta progresses to Special Grade status accompanied by a stronger persona.
In addition, after knowing about sealed Gojo, Yuta goes on to search for Black Rope, which could cancel the effects of cursed techniques.
But, the efforts are fruitless, and Yuta returns after learning about Inumaki losing an arm and resolves to ‘kill’ Yuji.
However, the attempt to kill Yuji was all an act to help protect him from the higher-ups. With his cold appearance, Yuta was able to fool the others.
Now, in Shibuya, Yuta agrees to help others during the Culling Game and displays his potential to be ruthless.
Even while witnessing Gojo’s fight with Sukuna, Yuta insists on going to help his mentor.
This creates a sense of division among the characters as some are against Yuta’s suggestion.
Despite this, Yuta believes his assistance would be helpful, providing a potential advantage in the battle.
But he could not join the battle because Sukuna potentially killed Gojo, as seen in chapter 236 leaks.
So, now readers wonder what will Yuta and the others do in the coming chapters.

After such damage to his mentor, Yuta surely won’t stay put and will definitely do something.
Yuta, considered to be the second strongest jujutsu sorcerer after Gojo, has set the goal of killing Kenjaku as well.
Along with immense physical prowess, Yuta has high tactical skills and abilities to manipulate cursed energy.
Yuta was firm on helping Gojo, which could have altered the course of the battle and its outcome.
Now, after chapter 236, the future events are uncertain, and fans wonder who will step up to defeat Sukuna.
Many argue that Yuta could be the one to finish off the strongest curse and protect everyone.
However, we do not know Yuta’s full potential, while Sukuna’s max power was more or less shown in recent fights.
In his current state, Yuta is more powerful than his friends, but it is not enough to be able to beat Sukuna.
Many Reddit users believe that Yuta only needs a breaking point moment to take him to the next level.
With refined controls and improved curse techniques, Yuta could even surpass Gojo if he tried.
However, with the introduction of Hajime Kashimo in the story, it is possible that Yuta only acts as a helping hand in future fights.
The writer has not revealed anything on this matter, so we’ll have to wait and see how the story develops in the future.
