There is little doubt that Jujutsu Kaisen fans look up to Gege Akutami and are always quick to take the mangaka's advice. However, the creator had made a rather controversial suggestion when asked about bands that fans can listen to. Not surprisingly, Akutami has since issued an apology after learning the truth about his recommendation!

Gege Akutami had previously shared his band recommendations in a special mangaka section of Weekly Shonen Jump. The Jujutsu Kaisen creator suggested Måneskin, Tempalay, and Rhye to his readers. However, it has since been revealed that Rhye frontman Mike Milosh was accused by his ex-wife of grooming and sexual abuse. After learning the news, Akutami decided to issue an apology for recommending the band without research.

Fans have called Gege Akutami's attention to research about the Rhye singer and it looks like the information finally reached the mangaka.

Back in March, Milosh's ex-wife Alexa Nikolas accused him of preying on her when she was a minor, coercing her into unwanted sexual acts, verbally abusing her and choking her. Milosh has since denied the allegations but Nikolas hasn't backed down on her accusations.

In the meantime, Jujutsu Kaisen fans have more exciting things to look forward to. It has already been confirmed that Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will finally be released in North American theaters next month. In addition to that, there are speculations that the anime's second season could be announced at an upcoming event.

It was previously reported that Jujutsu Kaisen is set for a major panel at Anime Japan. The RED Stage event will be attended by the cast of Jujutsu Kaisen 0 and they will be joined by Yuji Itadori voice actor Junya Enoki. With Enoki in attendance, it is believed that Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 will finally be announced.
