A couple of days ago, the mysterious mangaka of Jujutsu Kaisen gave a chaotic interview for Mando Kobayashi. In this interview, he talked about a variety of things.
He addressed some important questions all fans were curious about, like Jujutsu High’s 4th years to Yuji’s supposed “powers” and Sukuna’s interest in Megumi.
To our dismay, Gege’s answer about the last part full of beeps (someone, please stop this man from spoiling his own story). However, another important piece of information came out of this interview.
With the Jujutsu Kaisen manga just done with one major arc, everyone was curious about how long the story is. Akutami answered this question in a brief manner, though.
When will the Jujutsu Kaisen manga end?
Jujutsu Kaisen manga is set to end by the year 2023.
Gege Akutami said that if everything goes according to his plan, the Jujutsu Kaisen manga will end in the next two years. The manga has already covered a major arc in Shibuya Incident.
The story has been going at an incredible pace in the recent chapters. The plot just revealed the other major characters and contributors to continue the story. It seems like there will be no rest for both the mangaka and the readers if the manga ends in the next couple of years.
We, as fans, were also in dismay upon hearing this news. Two years is too early, Gege-sensei! As soon as this news came out on Twitter, all fans went frenzy as well. There is so much to uncover in the story, and the characters are dearly loved too.
Two years mean a rough estimate of 100 chapters, more or less. It really is too fast because it seems we just got here. Jujutsu Kaisen has become a favorite not just for us but also for many anime fans.
However, it might also be a blessing in disguise. Sometimes stories without narrative potentials go on for a long time, just for milking franchises. Anyway, we will keep a close eye on this amazing story! We also really hope if there is potential to this story, it continues further than just 2023!
