Like every end of the year, the Jump Festa is held, an event organized by the Shueisha. The opportunity to have news of certain series and we are just starting with Jujutsu Kaisen.
2022 is coming to an end. And it is always with the approach of the end of year celebrations that the very popular Jump Festaan annual event organized by the Shueisha to give news of certain series and projects dedicated to them. It is notably on this occasion that in 2021, Kohei Horikoshi, author of My Hero Academiahad announced the end of the series for 2022. An end finally postponed to a later date.
And as the fall anime season is in full swing thanks to chain saw man, Blue Lock or Spy x Family, our eyes now turn to 2023 and its long list of expected anime. Among the most anticipated, we obviously find season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen, whose film you were able to discover at the beginning of the year. Well rest assured! the Jump Festa 2023 was the occasion for the series to reveal the first trailer of this new seasonbut also a release date. We now know that season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen will be broadcast from July 2023. But that’s not the only big announcement made about the series!
Jujutsu Kaisen: A busy year 2023 for Gege Akutami’s series
During the Jump Festa 2023so fans were able to discover the first trailer of season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen and look forward to the broadcast scheduled for July 2023. However, the event is not only an opportunity to give news of the anime or projects around a series. The author is often invited to give updates on the sequence of events taking place in the manga. And that’s what Gege Akutami, the author of Jujutsu Kaisen, did. Just like Kohei Horikoshi in 2021, the mangaka revealed to the public present, but also to fans around the world, that Jujutsu Kaisen is expected to end in 2023. As a reminder, Jujutsu Kaisen is consistently among the best-selling manga, whether in Japan or across the world. The series currently has 21 volumes published in Japan.
The story takes place, for now, in the arc of The Killer Hunt. Whether Jujutsu Kaisen actually ends in 2023, this implies that there would be barely 54 chapters left to be published, provided that the author takes absolutely no delays, no vacations, etc. There would therefore remain approximately 5 to 6 volumes to be published, thus amounting Jujutsu Kaisen 26 or 27 volumes for a complete series. However, this remains purely theoretical and, as specified, is subject to conditions. In any case, even if Jujutsu Kaisen ends next year, the series will have marked the world of manga by opening a new path. We should therefore still hear about it for a few more years. It remains to be seen what Gege Akutami’s plans for the future would be. Maybe a spin-off focusing on Sukuna or Satoru Gojo, why not?
