Childhood sweethearts Yuta and Rika are simply inseparable, as seen in Taruki’s cosplay from Jujutsu Kaisen 0. Together with their fellow cosplayer, the two captured the special connection between the odd couple.

The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 cosplay photoset showcases Rika’s human form before she became the vengeful spirit known as the “Queen of Curses”. They have their arms wrapped around Yuta in all the cosplay photos, displaying the character’s affectionate side towards their osananajimi (childhood friend).

This exact pose is officially canon in the series and is actually featured on the cover of the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 manga.
