Jujutsu Kaisen Manga Likely Ending Within Two Years

    Gege Akutami, the author behind the Jujutsu Kaisen manga, said that the manga will “probably” end within two years. These statements were made in a televised interview on February 27, 2021.

    During the interview, Akutami also said that he has generally decided how the story will end. At this point, he knows how Megumi Fushiguro’s story will end, but he hasn’t decided how Sukuna’s (and Yuji Itadori’s) story will end yet.

    If you’re one of those people that only watches the Jujutsu Kaisen anime, here’s some brief history about the manga:

    In March 2018, Akutami launched Jujutsu Kaisen in Shueisha‘s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. Shueisha is also publishing the manga on its MANGA Plus website.


    Viz Media published the manga’s first three chapters in English simultaneously with Japan as part of its “Jump Start” initiative. Then in December 2018, Viz Media began publishing new chapters of the manga digitally.

    As of March 2021, the Jujutsu Kaisen manga has over 36 million copies in circulation, including digital versions, making it one of the best-selling manga series of all time.

    So, what does this announcement mean for us Jujutsu Kaisen fans? I think it means that we have a solid two years to enjoy the manga and see how the story evolves. We also have two years of seeing consistent updates on the manga chapters, which is also a good thing.
