Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the hottest and currently trending anime series these days in 2021. With the airing of Season 1, the series quickly amassed many fans and it rose up the chart at an alarming rate. So it’s understandable that many people in the anime community are actively keeping up with the manga’s run this year.
However, fans will have to be patient this week. This is because the author Gege Akutami suddenly became ill and had to take a short hiatus.
This latest update was announced by the Jujutsu Kaisen team. The notice declared that they would not be releasing a new chapter on February 8 as planned previously.
Below is the notice that was posted:
“Thank you for reading Jujutsu Kaisen. The next chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen has been delayed due to the author’s sudden sick leave. We’re very sorry to all the readers who’ve been looking forward to it and thank them for their patience and support. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience.”
When Will Jujutsu Kaisen Manga Chapter 138 Be Released?
The manga will return with a brand new chapter on February 15th with Weekly Shonen Jump issue 11.
What Do Fans Expect From Chapter 138?
So far, in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga series, absolutely everything has gone to hell and the readers cannot be sure who is safe and who is not. Kano unleashes his beasties which destroys the central government and Tokyo is completely overwhelmed. In Chapter 137, author Akutami has brought back Yuta, in a manner which many fans didn’t expect. Yuji is on the run and Yuta is hunting him down.
Principal Yaga and Geto have been sentenced to death. And Gojo has been permanently exiled from the Jujutsu world. Fans who are regularly keeping up with the manga are getting super excited on what to possibly expect from the next release. Because Chapter 137 has been quite wild with the whole apocalypse scenario and everything is looking very bleak right now.
Fans are expecting a face-off between Yuta and Yuji in Chapter 138. Many readers are also hoping that the upcoming chapter will give a much needed update about Maki and Nobara.
