Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the most well-liked shonen series that has been massively popular worldwide. Since the anime adaptation, the series has gained enormous popularity, and this popularity has only increased over time. However, the creator of the series claims that the eagerly anticipated Jujutsu Kaisen manga ending is almost here.
Renowned mangaka Gege Akutami gave a special message to the Jujutsu Kaisen fans at the Jujutsu Kaisen panel on December 16 at Jump Festa 2024. Akutami stated in the message that the manga is almost finished and will probably conclude in 2024, thus putting an end to one of the most popular anime and manga series of all time.
At this point in the series, Sukuna, the main villain, has fully awakened, and several important characters have died, thus the series may end earlier than expected. However, from the message shared by Akutami, it seems as if even they are not sure if the series will definitely end in 2024 or not, as they have said that the series “may” end in 2024.

In addition, new details about the forthcoming volume 25 and intriguing updates about Cursed Clash and Phantom Parade were revealed on the Jujutsu Kaisen stage. A message from Gege Akutami was also read to the audience and viewers worldwide at the Jujutsu Kaisen panel of Jump Festa 2024 by Yuma Uchida, who plays Megumi Fushiguro’s voice actor.
The message hinted that Jujutsu Kaisen’s appearance at Jump Festa this year may be their last, as the show is likely to conclude in 2024. This message received a mixed reaction from fans as while some were disappointed to hear the news, some fans were happy that they finally got to see the conclusion of the series. However, looking at the message, it seems that even Akutami isn’t sure if the series will end in 2024 or not.
Gege Akutami isn’t Sure if Jujutsu Kaisen is Ending in 2024
Fans of Jujutsu Kaisen would undoubtedly want to watch the series for as long as possible, but they are disappointed by Akutami’s message. However, examining previous works, numerous manga authors have declared that they will conclude the series by a specific date, only to find that it takes longer than anticipated. Two notable examples of this are Eiichiro Oda and Kohei Horikoshi.
Akutami even made the same announcement at Jump Festa the previous year, indicating that Jujutsu Kaisen might come to an end in 2023. Since Akutami hasn’t always been accurate in predicting the conclusion of their work, fans have some hope that the series will go on past 2024 and might even introduce a new antagonist who could completely change the course of the narrative.
