Jujutsu Kaisen Manga to Go on a One Week Hiatus Due to Creator’s Sudden Illness

The official Twitter account for Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has announced that a new chapter of Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen manga will not appear in this year’s 10th issue on February 8, 2021, due to Akutami’s sudden illness. Akutami has now recovered, and the manga will resume with the 11th issue on February 15, 2021.

The story of the manga is described as:

In a world where demons feed on unsuspecting humans, fragments of the legendary and feared demon Ryoma Sukuna were lost and scattered about. Should any demon consume Sukuna’s body parts, the power they gain could destroy the world as we know it. Fortunately, there exists a mysterious school of Jujutsu Sorcerers who exist to protect the precarious existence of the living from the supernatural.

Yuji Itadori is high schooler who spends his days visiting his bedridden grandfather. Although he looks like your average teenager, his immense physical strength is something to behold. Every sports club wants him to join, but Itadori would rather hang out with the school outcasts in the Occult Club. One day, the club manages to get their hands on a sealed cursed object, but little do they know the terror they’ll unleash when they break the seal…

Akutami launched Jujutsu Kaisen in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March 2018. VIZ Media publishes the manga in English.
