However, the central character of the series is Yuta Okkotsu, who is very similar to the likes of the anime’s protagonist, Yuji Itadori. It focuses on Yuta’s relationship with his cursed spirit, and once childhood friend, Rika. Yuta, thus, tries to fit in with his classmates under the guidance of Gojo while facing the threat, and rebellion, of Suguru Geto.
