Gege Akutami has announced a week’s hiatus on the manga Jujutsu Kaisen. The mangaka has been sick, though fans were assured that it was not COVID, and since the manga has only been delayed a week, it doesn’t appear to be anything serious.
Akutami noted a plan to write a chapter ahead in case of getting sick. But, as sometimes happens, there just wasn’t enough time in the day to do this. We wish Gege Akutami a speedy and successful recovery!
