In view of the celebration of the fourth of its anniversary, new illustrations are unveiled.

A very important date

On the occasion of the release of the next issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine, the manga Jujutsu Kaisen will be on the cover. The information was disseminated via social networks and in particular on Twitter by Maga Mogura RE.

For the manga’s four-year anniversary, the new artwork features protagonist Itadori Yuji, his teammate Megumi Fushiguro, and their senpai, Yuta Okkotsu. In view of the progress of the chapters of the manga, seeing these three exorcists together seems quite normal.

Just by looking at the image, we can clearly guess that they are on a war footing and ready to go on the offensive. To see more clearly, discover the new illustration in question below.

Gege Akutami’s Manga Odyssey

It was in March 2018 that the young Itadori Yuji entered the very long list of shonen heroes. In the bloody universe imagined by Gege Akutami, Yuji is a young high school student whose daily life changes when he becomes the host of the ruthless scourge Sukuna.

From that moment, he is fully bound and drawn into the world of exorcists. It is on this plot that Gege Akutami’s adventure with Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump begins. Since then, Jujutsu Kaisen has never ceased to panic the counters and to explode all kinds of records.

The success is such that the manga has simply sold more than 65 million copies in April 2022. We can also add to his list of multiple awards such as the Mando Kobayashi Manga Grand Prix, won in 2020. There are also an appointment the previous year during the 65and Shogakukan Manga Awards.

The anime adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen

With its dazzling success, Gege Akutami’s manga very quickly got its first anime adaptation. In 2020, the manga Jujutsu Kaisen came to life under the leadership of the very popular studio Mappa. The first season of the anime was a real hit.

In this, the fact that it won the anime of the year award at the fifth annual Crunchyroll Anime Award was only natural. The excitement of the fandom has continued to grow since then and the impatience for the launch of season 2 was already felt. This is when the anime movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0 was born.

This feature film is a prequel that looks back on the first steps in the world of Yuta Okkotsu’s exorcists. Success is also there and the film is already one of the most profitable in the history of Japanese cinema. With so much accomplishment already to be credited to the Jujutsu Kaisen franchise, one wonders what could hinder its rise in the coming years.
