They claim that Jujutsu Kaisen is experiencing a decrease in sales – Kudasai

Oricon’s weekly sales ranking in Japan was shared on a popular comment forum in Japan. Users assure that sales of manga written and illustrated by Gege Akutami, Jujutsu Kaisen, are going down, possibly due to the absence of new animation content or because there has been no more promotional material for the next feature film in months.

The indication falls on the accumulated sales for the seventeenth compiled volume, which amounted to 1,169,329 copies (counting two-day pre-sales) in its first week, while the sixteenth volume had 1,519,819 copies sold in the same period, a 23.06% decrease between launches.

On the other hand, Gege Akutami began the publication of the manga in the magazine Weekly Shonen Jump from the publisher Shueisha in March 2018. The play inspired an anime adaptation released during the Fall-2021 season (October-December) and which ended with a total of twenty-four episodes, produced by the studios. MAP under the direction of Seong-Hu Park and scripts written by Hiroshi Seko.

The production of an animated film, entitled Jujutsu Kaisen 0, is confirmed and its premiere is scheduled for December 24 in theaters in Japan. No promotional video has been revealed so far, beyond a promotional teaser revealed at the end of last July. It should be remembered that the video game for smartphones Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade will be available soon in the catalog of QooApp on this link.
