The next chapter of the JUJUTSU KAISEN manga will arrive a week later than expected, which should hopefully give author Gege Akutami some time to rest up. According to a tweet from the series’ official Twitter account, the manga won’t be appearing in the next issue of Weekly Shonen Jump due to Akutami’s poor health. 


The next chapter was originally scheduled to be published in this year’s 15th issue of Jump, which hits stands in Japan on March 14. With the updated schedule in place, the series will resume in the 16th issue on March 19.



Gege Akutami’s JUJUTSU KAISEN manga first kicked off in March 2018, and inspired a TV anime adaptation in October 2020. The prequel manga, JUJUTSU KAISEN 0, inspired a feature film of its own that opened in Japan on December 24, and it’s coming to North America and other territories starting on March 18. After that, fans can look forward to a second season in 2023. 




Yuji Itadori is a boy with tremendous physical strength, though he lives a completely ordinary high school life. One day, to save a classmate who has been attacked by curses, he eats the finger of Ryomen Sukuna, taking the curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares one body with Ryomen Sukuna. Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is admitted to Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights the curses… and thus begins the heroic tale of a boy who became a curse to exorcise a curse, a life from which he could never turn back.
