The popular manga which debuted back in March 2018 recently went on a hiatus due to health concerns for writer and illustrator Gege Akutami. Despite Weekly Shōnen Jump’s editorial department calling for Akutami for quite some time, Akutami pushed on until this June looking to draw towards the conclusion of Jujutsu Kaisen as quick as possible. “Even if I say I’m feeling unwell, this isn’t a serious illness,” he added in his June statement. “Mentally things are functioning as normal, so don’t worry,” said Akutami.
According to Weekly Shōnen Jump, Jujutsu Kaisen will be returning in its upcoming issue set to arrive August 2.
