Jujutsu is one of the best and most famous shonen mangas. Not only that, the anime adaptation is one of the best shonen anime. it is written by Gege Akutami and released on 5th March 2018. The anime adaptation, of course, was just released last year is soon getting a prequel film.

Jujutsu Kaisen is known for the fast-paced plot and like all shonen anime, awesome fights. I mean really, when you are watching Jujutsu Kaisen you just go through episodes/chapters curious to know what happened next. Especially the ongoing arc in the manga is just crazy but sadly, we will have to wait a bit longer for the next chapter here’s why.

Why is Jujutsu Kaisen going on hiatus?

As you may have already guessed, it is because of the author’s health. No, it is not the author who took the leave this time, Jump’s editorial department forced him to go on leave. I don’t know about you but, they did the right thing.

You see, Gege insisted that he is fine and his illness is “nothing serious” and continued working. This isn’t good of course. He should take care of himself and the fact that it was Jump that forced him to take a break leads me to believe that Gege seriously needs rest. According to Gege-sensei’s statement, he should be back in around a month.

As is the case with many mangakas, Gege has been working really hard. He didn’t even take a break in his vacation days and continued working. He insists that he is fine and that his illness is not serious, but he seriously should take a little time off. There has been no official statement regarding what illness Gege-sensei is facing but I really hope it is nothing too serious as he says.

He says that there is no fun in Jujutsu Kaisen if the fast pace is broken but, he should take care of himself. We can wait for the next chapter so you take care of yourself and come back in full health. Love your work and understand how hard you are working so do not worry. We are with you Gege-sensei so go and take your rest seriously. We expect the next chapter to be awesome so you better come back with your full strength.

Well, that is all I have for now. I really hope Gege-sensei isn’t facing some serious problem and will be back with us very soon. I wish him a very speedy recovery and I really hope that he actually rests both mentally and physically during his break.

Let me know your thoughts on this issue down in the comments. We all understand how hard mangakas work and we love them for it. Once in a while though, they deserve a break. Once again I wish a very speedy recovery to Gege-sensei. Sir, please take care of yourself and come back to us in top condition.
