What episode does Yuji Itadori die in?

The events we are about to describe happened in Episode 5 of Jujutsu Kaisen, titled “Fearsome Womb, Part 2”, which premiered on October 31, 2020. A month after he and Megumi saved a child from a Curse, Yuji, along with Nobara and Megumi, is taken to the detention center for a mission by Kiyotaka Ijichi who explains the situation to them. When a relative comes to ask if his son is safe, Yuji is determined to go save the inmates.

As the three head towards the center, they notice that the area has expanded. Megumi also notices that there is no more exits, causing Yuji and Nobara to wonder what they are going to do. Megumi tells them that his Shikigami, which he had summoned, is able to find the exit, which Yuji and Nobara rejoice over. The three then head deeper towards the center, where they encounter corpses there.

Yuji examines one of the corpses and discovers that it is the inmate they are looking for. Yuji then wants to get the body back, but Megumi forbids him. The two students then argue, but stop when Nobara disappears to another location. Before the two can react to this, an S-class Curse appears. Yuji tries to act quickly by attacking the spirit with Tozama, but the Curse easily breaks it and even cuts off Yuji’s hand.

The latter tries to convince Sukuna to help them but Sukuna refuses and even says that he will kill his friends. Yuji then tells Megumi to go save Nobara and give a signal once they are out, as he will trade his body with Sukuna at that moment. After Megumi leaves, Yuji goes to fight the Curse but is quickly overpowered. In a fit of desperation, Yuji decides to attack the Blight with a punch charged with Cursed Energy.

The Curse easily counters Yuji, but both of them suddenly hear a wolf howl, the signal Megumi was supposed to give. After hearing this, Yuji exchanges with Sukuna. After the Curse is defeated, Yuji fails to retake his body, causing Sukuna to pursue Megumi. After a while, Yuji manages to reclaim his body and then has a brief conversation with Megumi before dying because he has lost his heart.

What episode does Yuji Itadori come back to life in?

The events we are about to describe in this section took place in Episode 6 of Jujutsu Kaisen, titled “After the Rain”, which had its premiere on November 7, 2020 in Japan. Yuji’s body is then taken to the morgue of the Tokyo Exorcism School, so that it can be examined. Later, Yuji finds himself inside Sukuna’s living space, where he begins a fight with Sukuna. Sukuna easily overpowers Yuji and then tells him that they are not completely dead.

Sukuna offers to bring Yuji back to life, with certain conditions that mainly benefit Yuji, which Yuji rejects and tells Sukuna to revive him unconditionally. Sukuna proposes that they fight and the winner gets his deal, which Yuji accepts but Sukuna easily defeats him there too. Before the examination could begin, Yuji came back to life and was greeted by Satoru.

As Yuji changes clothes, Satoru talks with Shoko Ieiri about leaving the deceased Yuji on the records so he can train Yuji for the interschool tournament. Later, Yuji is brought into a room, where Satoru explains how Cursed Energy works as well as what spells are. As Yuji gets excited, Satoru reveals to him that he can’t use spells which causes Yuji to become sad.

Satoru tells him that they will just enhance his fighting abilities with Cursed Energy and asks him to smack his hand. As Yuji slaps Satoru’s hand, the latter explains that there wasn’t an ounce of Cursed Energy in it and it’s the negative emotions that fuel the Cursed Energy. Satoru then tells Yuji that he will have to train his Cursed Energy by watching movies.

He gives him one of the Principal’s dolls and explains how he will learn to control his Cursed Energy flow by watching movies, and that the doll in question will attack him if he doesn’t emit a constant flow of Cursed Energy. Unfortunately for him, Yuji struggles with this at first but manages to get the hang of it with time.

Before Satoru leaves for a meeting with Masamichi, he asks if Yuji met Sukuna when he was dead but Yuji tells him he doesn’t remember. Later, Yuji manages to pass his training when Satoru shows up to teach Yuji about Domain Expansion. Satoru takes him to where Jogo is and after angering the latter, Satoru tells Yuji not to leave him. As Jogo uses his Domain Expansion, Satoru explains to Yuji what kind of technique it is.

Yuji then watches as Satoru easily overpowers Jogo, a powerful Curse. When Satoru begins to interrogate Jogo, he and Yuji are distracted by Hanami’s spell. Yuji and Satoru try to stop them, but Hanami manages to escape with Jogo. Satoru then explains to Yuji that he will train hard until the High School Tournament. Yuji then asks what he’s talking about, and Satoru is surprised he didn’t tell him.
