While there was some hype for a Jujutsu Kaisen adaptation before the anime first aired, few would have expected it to be so huge! Within just a few episodes, the franchise cemented itself as one of the biggest shounen anime going right now! With a bit of a gap between seasons, it’s no surprise anime only’s are wondering if the Jujutsu Kaisen manga is finished or ongoing.
Is the Jujutsu Kaisen Manga Finshed?
No, the Jujutsu Kaisen manga is still ongoing. At the time of writing, there have been 177 chapters released.
The first season of Jujutsu Kaisen adapted the first 63 chapters of the manga, while the recent film release, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, actually adapts a prequel story. There is plenty more content to enjoy, whether you want to read the manga or are patient enough to wait for the anime’s return.
There have been 18 tankobon volumes of Jujutsu Kaisen released so far. There are also spin-off Jujutsu Kaisen light novels that add more content.
Is the Jujutsu Kaisen Manga Ending Soon?
The Jujutsu Kaisen manga isn’t ending anytime soon, but the conclusion is in sight. According to its creator, Gege Akutami, Jujutsu Kaisen’s manga is expected to end sometime in 2023.
In 2020, Akutami stated that they knew how the manga was going to end but hadn’t decided how the characters would arrive at that point. Then, in early 2021, they gave an interview suggesting that they would like to end the series within two years.
It’s worth saying that Akutami wasn’t fully confident that he could finish the story within that timeframe, and it’s common for manga to continue for longer than their creator intended (see the One Piece manga that’s still ongoing).
However, since they mentioned the two-year mark, the manga has been repeatedly hampered by various breaks due to Gege Akutami's poor health.
It is believed that the manga is in its last quarter. With health becoming increasingly important, it would not be surprising if Gege Akutami seeks to conclude the series as smoothly and quickly as possible.
No matter what happens, it’s clear that Jujutsu Kaisen has been a roaring success! Thankfully, especially for anime fans, there is plenty more of this world to enjoy both on-page and on-screen in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2.
