This news raised several questions from fans. Some believe that the end of Jujutsu Kaisen this year would be a twist in history, which has not finished clarifying the gray areas. Currently, the exorcists are in the Murder Hunt arc, with the intervention of the US military. Finishing the manga in a year might be doable, but Akutami will have to work hard to answer all the questions.
The most anticipated anime of the year?
Jujutsu Kaisen hit the screens in 2020. With animation by MAPPA, the anime has become super popular. The story of Yuji Itadori, a simple high school student who joins the closed circle of exorcists has become best selling manga of 2022. In addition, the film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 introduced new characters for future plots. These will be developed in the second season.
