Jujutsu Kaisen, a manga series that is beautifully written and illustrated by Gege Akutami, was published by Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March 2018, The Shibuya arc is one of the best arcs of the whole series, where many side characters take their last breath.
The second season of Jujutsu Kaisen is ended now but the hype is still the same. Season 2 has just ended so fans are waiting for season 3 to come and want to know what will be the twist in the story and who will die in the worst case.
Season 2 kept the fans on their toes in every single episode and every fan remains interested to know what will happen next with every character in Season 3. Gege Akutami is still hiding many secrets in the manga that are yet to be seen and many secrets that are still to be seen further.
In both seasons of Jujutsu Kaisen, every character has been designed differently and everyone has different power abilities due to whose face we remember each character even after the end of the season.
Who plays the lead role in Jujutsu Kaisen? What are the Reasons behind this hot topic?
There is a lot to know about Jujutsu Kaisen but many of the fans are confused as to who plays the lead role of Jujutsu Kaisen. Of Course! It’s become a controversial topic for all Jujutsu fans because many fans are confused about who Gege Akutami makes the real hero: Yuji or Yuta?
This topic is controversial because Yuji and Yuta come with similar destinies but also some major differences. Both Yuji and Yuta have unique abilities, also they taken custody and become Jujutsu sorcerers by Satoru Gojo.
This trouble occurs when the Gege Akutami does not focus during the Perfect Preparation arc, where Gege gives more screen time to other side characters whose attention becomes a favorite of Jujutsu Fans rather than Yuji. In the Shibuya arc, Yuji wasn’t given a main character-like screen time, he was given a screen time like a side character at some point that’s the reason many fans thought Gege gave the sidelined to Yuji.
Yuta Okkotsu as a main character:
Yuta Okkotsu plays a main role in Jujutsu Kaisen 0 which was released in 2022, When Yuta was a child his late friend Rika Orimoto hunted him, so he became a human who carried a cursed spirit. Yuta has aimed to master that cursed spirit and kill Itadori Yuji, now he become a senior student of Jujutsu High, also working as a Jujutsu Sorcerer.
How can people think that Yuta would play a main character in the universe of Jujutsu Kaisen, plus how is it possible that Yuta with its cursed potential will surpass their powerful mentored characters like Satoru Gojo and Yuji Itadori? After all, Yuta comes in the finale of Season 2 of the anime series, that such a thing isn’t characteristic of the main character. When Yuta comes back in season 2 of the finale, he declares to kill Yuji, so the discussion will be clear in season 3, who is the main character or who is the villain?
Yuji Itadori as a main character:
Yuji entered the first episode, in their school days, he lived peacefully with their grandfather until Megumi who is the Jujutsu sorcerer encountered him. After that, he ate one finger of Sukuna and became a Sukuna vessel, he gained the spiritual power of Sukuna which uncontrol for Yuji.
Now he become a vessel of Sukuna so now he is a villain? There is a big no for that, Yuji is a kind, fair, insane, and friendly person, he becomes Jujutsu Sorcerer not only for his goals but also for the saving of the life of innocent people because he knows the “value of life”. This is almost clear that Yuji plays the main role because the whole story starts with Yuji when he becomes the vessel of Sukuna and a lot of part of the season moves through Yuji, also 99% of the story can’t take a breath without Yuji.
Final Words: At Some times, the screen time of Yuji is still the same. The whole event of the story revolves around Yuji and ends with him, so it would be wrong to say that he does not play the lead role. However, The Culling Game Arc of Season 3 will be streaming on Crunchyroll, which will create some doubts and solve some doubts too. We are waiting to see the next move of Gege Akutami regarding Yuji, Yuta, and other characters.
