It happens, everyone. Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the biggest anime series and is gearing up for a busy year. After all, 2023 will welcome the show’s second season, and Gojo’s got a lot going on when the show returns to the air. He’s still coming out of the daze of Jujutsu Kaisen’s first movie, and the anime just announced that it will be releasing special merchandise from the movie. However, this new collectible focuses less on Gojo and more on his protégé.
Yes that’s right. Jujutsu Kaisen is about to release a replica intended for Yuta. The high schooler will soon see their sword on shelves in Japan, and Tamashii fans will want to get their hands on the blade ASAP.

For those who don’t know, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 welcomed Yuta Okkotsu into the anime, and his power was shown pretty quickly. There’s a reason why Yuta would be a special rank wizard so young, and his bond with the cursed spirit Rika was due. Of course, fans watched Yuta in the movie channel Rika with his sword, and now that blade is being released to collectors. The theatrical replica is expected to be released in June 2023 and comes complete with motion-activated sounds and a built-in set of phrases from Yuta.

Unfortunately, Rika does not come with a knife. Don’t expect the overwhelmed mind to accompany your purchase this summer. And if we’re being honest, that’s a good thing. Yuta had a hard enough time managing Rika, and that was even with Gojo’s custody.
This anime replica isn’t the first Tamashii has made, and it won’t be the last. The brand has released a number of Demon Slayer weapons, now including swords from Tanjiro, Inosuke, and more. As the anime industry continues to grow, you can expect more of these collectibles to pop up. So if you haven’t started your collection yet, Yuta’s sword might be a good place to get the ball rolling.
