After the super successful first season of Jujutsu Kaisen, fans are going to get upset as the manga series of Jujutsu Kaisen is going on an "indefinite hiatus". It was announced on the official website of Weekly Shonen Jump and the official Twitter account of the magazine that "Jujutsu Kaisen" will be suspended for a while due to the poor physical condition of the writer, Gege Akutami.
The wellbeing of manga creators has been a long-standing concern in the Manga Industry. The deadlines for every new chapter require the creators to work continuously for extended periods of time.
Although Akutami wanted to continue writing, it was announced that after discussions with the Jump editorial department, it was decided that it would be better to take a break for a certain period of time to recover his physical condition.
Jujutsu Kaisen will be taking a break, but will be back soon. We wish Gege Akutami a restful time off and look forward to the next chapter! https://t.co/dDbsVzcyaU— Shonen Jump (@shonenjump) June 10, 2021
"It's been about a month. It doesn't mean that I'm sick, and I'm mentally driving normally, so don't worry." - said Akutami. In addition, a handwritten comment from Akutami is also open to the public.
Also, "Jujutsu Kaisen" is published in the next issue of Weekly Shonen Jump No. 28 released on June 14, and the suspension is from Weekly Shonen Jump No. 29 released on June 21. The resumption time will be announced in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
Meanwhile, fans of the Anime series of Jujutsu Kaisen can wait for the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen Anime, which is currently being produced by MAPPA Studio.
