Jujutsu Kaisen's Complex Manga Release Schedule

Technically, Jujutsu Kaisen's manga chapters are scheduled to come out weekly. However, that's not always the reality.

More than almost any of the major shounen manga titles, Jujutsu Kaisen is regularly delayed, sometimes at short notice. There's been at least a one-week hiatus to the series every month since mid-2022.

So, while Jujutsu Kaisen's manga is usually published weekly, be prepared for some pauses. Usually, delays are announced first by the Japanese Jujutsu Kaisen PR account on X before being widely shared online.

Jujutsu Kaisen was first published in March 2018. So far, there have been over 200 chapters released and more than 24 tankobon volumes, with Volume 25 released on January 4, 2024.

Jujutsu Kaisen's delays happen for various reasons, but some cases are due to health concerns around the mangaka Gege Akutami.

Earlier, Gege Akutami’s health problems were widely reported. Thankfully, despite the pressure put on manga creators, many people have been understanding of his issues.

Often, specific reasons aren't provided for individual chapter delays. Many of the biggest series take occasional breaks to allow creators to recharge, as the pace of producing new chapters weekly can be very intense.

For Jujutsu Kaisen, there are rarely more than two weeks between chapters, so fans don't have to wait too long.

New chapters of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga come out every Sunday, in line with their weekly release in Japan.

Many of the series in Shonen Jump are designed for the physical magazine which comes out on Mondays, so the online release is coordinated to minimize spoilers emerging online before physical copies are released.

Chapters are available on Sundays in the US and further afield due to timezone differences. Technically, the Jujutsu Kaisen chapters come out first thing on Monday in Japan.

You can keep track of the latest Jujutsu Kaisen manga chapters on Viz Media’s website. Viz usually provides a daily countdown to the next chapter, so you know when to expect something new.
