Chapter 137 of Jujutsu Kaisen anticipated a possible clash between two great characters, but apparently we'll have to wait an extra week before figuring out how the situation will play out. Shueisha indeed, confirmed that the manga will be paused for at least seven days due to health problems by Gege Akutami, author of the work.
""Thank you for the continued support of Jujutsu Kaisen"is the official statement,"Unfortunately, chapter 138 of the manga is being postponed for a week due to a sudden health problem from the author. The new version is planned for February 14, 2021. We apologize for the inconvenience"So no chapter for February 7th, but luckily the wait will be short.
The publisher has not researched the subject in depth, but it appears that the problems are somehow related to the stress caused by overwork. In addition to the bi-weekly break last December Gege Akutami was incredibly punctual with releasesI only skip a handful of weekends.
We are waiting for Chapter 138 to be released, reminding you that there will be no interruptions to the Jujutsu Kaisen anime and that episode 17 will be available on Crunchyroll Italia tomorrow, February 5, 2021 from 6:00 p.m.
Jujutsu Kaisen's absence from weekly Shonen Jump No. 10 appears to be due to a sudden illness on the part of the author. The editors apologize, thank readers for reading the series, and say Jujutsu Kaisen will be resumed in Issue 11.- Shonen Jump News - Unofficial (@WSJ_manga) February 4, 2021
