Jujutsu Kaisen Has 15 Million Copies in Circulation

Jujutsu Kaisen Has 15 Million Copies in PrintGege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen continues to sell, sell, sell. The manga has now surpassed 15 million copies, reports publisher Shueisha.

That number, which includes digital copies, is especially impressive considering the manga hit “just” 10 million copies in October. The 5 million boost is thanks to additional print runs on various volumes of the manga.

Published in Shonen Jump since 2018, Jujutsu Kaisen is now up to volume 14, which will ship in January.

It’s also inspired an anime series, which began airing in October.

Here’s how Viz Media describes the manga:

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…

Congrats to Jujutsu Kaisen and its 15 million copies!
