The My Hero Academia manga has been running in Jump since July 2014, so we’re coming up on the 10th anniversary. The Jujutsu Kaisen manga started in March 2018, and the possibility of it ending sometime this year has been teased in the past.

Little do they know the terror they’ll unleash when they break the seal…
