Gege Akutami, the creator of the popular shounen manga Jujutsu Kaisen, has recently shared his plans to end the series as early as the end of 2023. Despite being one of the hottest anime and manga franchises right now, with a large and dedicated fanbase, Akutami has expressed his desire to bring the story to a close this year itself.
In the latest chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen, Akutami revealed his intentions in a note published in Weekly Shonen Jump Issue #8. While the manga is currently ongoing, the author stated that he wants to wrap up the series in the near future. This news has left some fans worried and disappointed, as they feel that the story still has a lot of ground to cover.
The manga has been gaining immense popularity since its debut, with many fans hooked to the intriguing story, memorable characters, and epic battles. The series follows the story of Yuji Itadori, a high school student who becomes involved in the world of jujutsu after swallowing a powerful cursed object. Along with other jujutsu sorcerers, he battles against powerful curses and other supernatural threats to protect humanity.
The current arc of the manga is focused on a tournament, where powerful sorcerers compete against each other to determine who will become the next head of the jujutsu society. The story has also introduced a new villain, Kenjaku, who reveals important information about the Culling Game, a dangerous and deadly ritual that puts the lives of many innocent people at risk.
While some fans are disappointed that the story might come to an end too soon, others feel that it’s a good thing that the author has expressed his wish to conclude the series. It’s not uncommon for long-running shounen manga to become repetitive or drag on for too long, losing the impact of the story and the excitement of the readers. With many unanswered questions still remaining to be addressed, some fans are skeptical that Akutami will be able to wrap up everything in a satisfying way before the end of the year. However, they also recognize that a well-crafted ending is important to the overall legacy of the series and that Akutami’s desire to end the story may ultimately be a positive thing for the future of Jujutsu Kaisen.
