Again just two weeks after the literary franchise based on the manga, written and illustrated by Gege Akutami, Jujutsu Kaisenannounced that more than 25 million copies were in circulation. The franchise's official Twitter account announced that there are now over 30 million copies in circulation (including physical and digital copies). «[Celebración + Portada del volumen más reciente] As always, thank you for your continued support! The cumulative copies of the series have exceeded 30 million (including digital copies).. In memory, We have unveiled the cover of the fifteenth volume, which will be released on March 4th, 2021.

It should be noted that Jujutsu Kaisen has grown from 8.5 million copies in circulation in October 2020 to 30 million copies (unsold but also digital) today. That means the series has seen a 252.94% increase since the premiere of its animated adaptation..
