Many of the biggest series, particularly those in Shonen Jump, are designed for physical magazines. Shonen Jump itself comes out on Mondays, so the online release date is coordinated to try to avoid spoilers emerging before physical copies are released.

The fact that chapters are available on Sundays in the US and further afield is due to timezone differences. Technically, the Jujutsu Kaisen chapters still come out on Monday Japanese time.

Occasionally, the Jujutsu Kaisen manga will be delayed by a week. This can happen for various reasons, but the majority are due to the health concerns of mangaka Gege Akutami.

Gege Akutami’s health problems have been widely reported, especially over the last few months. Thankfully, despite the pressure put on creators, many people have been understanding of these issues.

As a result of the mangaka’s health, chapters are occasionally delayed by a week. However, it’s usually only a week’s delay before the chapter arrives.

If there are any delays to Jujutsu Kaisen, these are usually reported first on the official Jujutsu Kaisen Twitter (in Japanese) before being shared across popular social media channels.
