Jujutsu Kaisen's Messy 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's manga is regularly delayed at short notice. There was a week's delay to the series in November and December 2022 and again in January 2023.
So, while Jujutsu Kaisen's manga is usually published weekly, be prepared for some short-term pauses. Usually, delays are announced first by the Japanese Jujutsu Kaisen PR Twitter before being widely shared online.
Jujutsu Kaisen was first published in March 2018. So far, there have since been over 200 chapters released and more than 20 tankobon volumes, although creator Gege Akutami has spoken about trying to end the series this year.
You can keep track of the latest Jujutsu Kaisen manga chapters on Viz Media’s website. Viz usually provide a daily countdown to the next chapter, so you know when to expect something new.
Why is the Jujutsu Kaisen Manga So Often Delayed?
Jujutsu Kaisen's delays can happen for various reasons, but the majority of cases 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.
What Day Do the New Jujutsu Kaisen Chapters Come Out?
New chapters of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga will usually come out on Sundays, in line with their weekly release in Japan.
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.
