2. Theory Section

Many believe that the anime adaptation for Jujutsu Kaisen is a little too early since there are only around 110 chapters until now, it may pose a problem in the future.

The studio might have to give long breaks in between the seasons to get more source material, or they would have to use filler episodes just to buy some time.

I. Financial Standings

As of 2020, there are 4.5 million copies of the manga in circulation. The series ranked 1st on the “Nationwide Bookstore Employees’ Recommended Comics of 2018.”

In 2019, the manga was nominated for the 65th Shogakukan Manga Award for the shōnen category. There is no further information about the money made by the franchise.

II. Animation Quality

The animation in the promotional video looked terrific. All the fans have high hopes from the MAPPA studio.

III. Gege Akutami’s Health

The writer seems to be in good health since the manga is being released at regular intervals, and there is no break in between.

3. Production Update

The only update regarding the production is that due to COVID-19, there can be some delay with the release.

We hope everything goes smoothly, and the anime is released on time, but we have to accept that the coronavirus pandemic has taken a toll on the anime industry.

4. New trailer
