A new record for the manga Jujutsu Kaisen

Gege Akutami’s manga is really no longer to present to the public. Since his early days in the manga industry, Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the most popular franchises of the moment. In just a few years, the animated adaptation of this work has been a real success and fans are already very enthusiastic to discover the sequel.

But before getting there, the manga has just set a new record at the expense of another franchise.

Franchise news

Gege Akutami’s work debuted in 2018 and already has an anime adaptation. In addition to the anime series, Jujutsu Kaisen also has an anime movie. This feature film, entitled Jujutsu Kaisen 0, looks back on events prior to the arrival of Yuji Itadori. After its release, the film smashed a large number of records and this is not the only feat of arms to the credit of the franchise.

The manga has also been talked about in recent days by surpassing a record to the credit of My Hero Academia. On the Jujutsu_PR Twitter account, we learn that the manga has sold around the world with more than 65 million copies in circulation. Just like his eldest who set this record shortly after his debut in 2014, Jujutsu Kaisen has just done the same.

The next challenges to overcome

After having succeeded in surpassing My Hero Academia, Jujutsu Kaisen will still have other levels to cross. This will include passing the bar of 72 million copies sold. But before having the spirit turned towards this next step, the manga continues to advance. Since the Shibuya Incident arc, Itadori faces many obstacles. With the help of Megumi, he is forced to participate in the Game of Slaughter arc and face formidable opponents.

However, he can count on the help of Yuta Okkotsu the protagonist of the movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0 who finally joins the party. The upcoming events in Gege Akutami’s manga promise to be very intense. So there is really something to look forward to discovering season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen. With such success, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the franchise set new records in the future whether it be with manga or anime.
