Jujutsu Kaisen author plans to end the manga series sooner than you thought.
Today, during Jump Festa 2024, a lot of new information about the “Jujutsu Kaisen” manga was revealed.
Not only was a Jujutsu Kaisen volume cover featuring Sukuna unveiled, but voice actors from the series also performed dialogues from the upcoming Culling Games arc.
So, what does the author think about when the “Jujutsu Kaisen” series will end, and why might it not be the case? Here is everything you need to know.
During Jump Festa 2024, a message from the author, Gege Akutami, was shared, where he revealed that this is likely the last Jump Festa before the series concludes. Gege’s message translates to: “This is probably the last Jujutsu Kaisen Jump Festa while it is in serialization.”
If Gege Akutami’s estimation is accurate, “Jujutsu Kaisen” will likely have about 35 more manga chapters until December 2024.
However, fans are skeptical about the “Jujutsu Kaisen” manga ending that soon. One of the reasons is that both main villains of the series are still active.
Moreover, Gege Akutami, two years earlier,, stated that the manga would end in 2023. In an interview in September 2021, he said, “I am talking with my editor that the manga will be over in 2 years, but we will have to see what the editor thinks about this decision.”
But as is evident, fans don’t believe that the series will end in a year.
In case you are not aware, “Jujutsu Kaisen” is a manga series written by Gege Akutami, which started in Weekly Shonen Jump in March 2018. Mappa Studio picked up the manga for an anime adaptation, with the first season airing in October 2020, followed by the second season in July 2023.
If you are planning to watch the anime series, Crunchyroll is streaming both Season 1 and 2. You can read the “Jujutsu Kaisen” manga on the Manga Plus app or website.
