Are you ready to see the end of another shounen manga? Gege Akutami, the mangaka (author) of the famous Sorcerer manga, Jujutsu Kaisen hints at the possible conclusion of the story in one year.
“If you follow me for up to one more year (presumably), I will be extremely delighted,” said Gege Akutami, creator of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, in a written message read during the Jump Festa ’23 event on Saturday.
Akutami earlier stated in a February 2021 interview that the manga would “probably” end within two years. However, Akutami remarked at the time that he did not believe such a statement.
In March 2018, Akutami published the manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. As part of its Jump Start initiative, Viz Media published the manga’s first three chapters in English alongside Japan. When Viz moved to its new Shonen Jump model in December 2018, it began digitally publishing fresh chapters of the manga. Shueisha will also make the manga available online through its MANGA Plus service.
Viz Media, the publishing house for the manga’s English version describes the story as:
Although Yuji Itadori looks like your average teenager, his immense physical strength is something to behold! Every sports club wants him to join, but Itadori would rather hang out with the school outcasts in the Occult Research Club. One day, the club manages to get their hands on a sealed cursed object. Little do they know the terror they’ll unleash when they break the seal…
The television anime Jujutsu Kaisen started in October 2020 and ran for 24 episodes. Crunchyroll broadcasted the anime outside of Asia as it aired in Japan, as well as dubs in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German.
The anime film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 premiered in Japan in December 2021, and it was released in the United States and Canada on March 18 with English subtitles and an English dub.
The second season of the anime will air in July 2023.
