After the anime series was stopped for a few months and all attention turned to the upcoming prequel feature film, the manga by Jujutsu Kaisen is going through the most difficult phase since his debut. The data in Volume 17 actually speak for themselves, Akutami's work is in a "crisis".

As can be seen from the weekly sales ranking Oricon Japanese, sales of the manga written and illustrated by Gege Akutami are declining, perhaps due to theLack of the anime's nudge or because of the promotional material for the next film, but no trailers have been released for a while.

In its first week, the seventeenth volume of Jujutsu Kaisen scored one 1,168,329 copies sold in total, a fact which seems more than satisfactory, but which, when analyzed with that of the previous volume, is "merciless". Jujutsu Kaisen # 16 sold a total of 1,519,819 copies during the same period. The decline in this new launch is equal to 23.06%, almost a quarter of the copies sold less.

The publication of Gege Akutami's manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine began in March 2018. After about three years, the balance sheet is up a slight decrease can be considered more than legitimate, seen and taken into account what was said before.

And you, are you following the manga? We leave you developments of Jujutsu Kaisen 161 and a tour of Tokyo with the characters of the opera.
