Jujutsu Kaisen’s Ongoing Arc Confirmed as Final Part of the Story

The current arc of the hit manga series, Jujutsu Kaisen has been confirmed as the final part of the story.

This information comes straight from the creator, Gege Akutami, through a Q&A booklet distributed at a Jujutsu Kaisen exhibition in Japan.

The ongoing storyline, known as the Shinjuku Showdown arc, marks the 11th arc in the manga’s run. It pits protagonist Yuji Itadori and his allies against Ryomen Sukuna, the King of Curses, in what promises to be an epic confrontation.

Akutami said this is the “final part of the story.” But what does that mean? It could be the last arc, saga, or section. Fans are trying to figure it out.

Note: Akutami used the term "最終章" (saishūshō). This means "final arc" or "final part" in Japanese. No matter how you translate it - final arc, act, saga, part, or section - it means the story is heading towards its end.

Here’s something to think about: If Akutami means this is the final saga, we might still get more arcs. It’s like One Piece right now. One Piece is in its final saga, but it still has several arcs left.

While the current focus is on the battle against Sukuna, many readers are eagerly anticipating the “merger” – a pivotal event that’s been foreshadowed throughout the series.

The merger refers to Kenjaku’s plan to fuse Japan’s cursed energy with Master Tengen to create the ultimate Curse Spirit. This event is expected to serve as a major turning point in the story.

Even though Jujutsu Kaisen heroes are currently fighting Sukuna, the threat of Kenjaku looms large. Having captured Master Tengen and amassed vast amounts of cursed energy, Kenjaku is likely preparing for the merger. This setup suggests that even after the Shinjuku Showdown, there may be more story to tell.

Many fans argue that without seeing the merger and Kenjaku’s ultimate fate, the story would feel incomplete. For a satisfying conclusion to the story, having a fleshed out arc about Kenjaku and his true motives feels necessary.

Jujutsu Kaisen began its manga run in March 2018, serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. The series quickly gained popularity for its fresh take on the supernatural battle genre. Its anime adaptation, which premiered in October 2020, further catapulted the franchise to global fame. Jujutsu Kaisen season 3 is currently in production.
