Jujutsu Kaisen author's health: more on the hiatus extension

Gege Akutami, the creative mind behind Jujutsu Kaisen, has been dealing with some health issues that initially led to the manga's hiatus after the previous chapter's release. The latest update from the Shounen Jump Editorial Department indicates that Akutami's health is on the mend. However, it was decided to extend the hiatus by one week to ensure the author's full recovery. 


The translated tweet from the editorial department above reads: " Jujutsu Kaisen was originally scheduled to resume publication in Issue 31 of Weekly Shonen Jump, but will now resume in Issue 32. Although Akutami Sensei's health is improving, after consulting with the editorial staff, we have decided that he should resume writing only when he is in perfect health. We appreciate your continued support."

Fans are encouraged not to worry about the delay, as it is simply a commitment to the well-being of Akutami and the long-term quality of the series. The support from the fanbase remains a vital factor during this tough time, as it ensures that Akutami can return to his work in optimal condition to deliver the high-quality content that Jujutsu Kaisen is known for. 

While the one-week extension of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga hiatus may disappoint some enthusiastic fans, it is a necessary precaution taken to safeguard the health of its creator. Fans can look forward to the release of Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 262-2 on July 8, with the assurance that Akutami is recovering well.
