The manga for Jujutsu Kaisen is still running through the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump, following Yuji Itadori and his friends from Jujutsu Tech as they struggle through the challenges of the Culling Game Arc. Although creator Gege Akutami said he has an ending in mind for the series, there’s still plenty of material to cover for the anime adaptation.
