Even though Jujutsu Kaisen debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2018, it hasn’t spent any time in becoming one of the most well-known anime series. Creator Gege Akutami has achieved yet another milestone thanks to the success of the manga, which was aided by the first season of the anime adaptation and the prequel film Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
The fact that there are presently over 70 million copies of the manga for the supernatural Shonen series in circulation shows that there is undoubtedly a growing interest in learning more about Yuji Itadori and his friends from Jujutsu Tech.
The Shonen Jump series can only rise from here in terms of overall sales figures, as the Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 release date is confirmed to be in 2023.
Jujutsu Kaisen Manga final arc is approaching
Jujutsu Kaisen has reached a significant milestone in terms of the overall numbers of its manga in print, but it still has a long way to go before it can compete with One Piece, Dragon Ball, Naruto, and Demon Slayer, each of which has hundreds of millions of copies of its printed story in circulation worldwide.
The manga’s creator has hinted that the manga’s plot is nearing its conclusion, but there are still plenty of plots, conflicts, and characters for the anime adaptation to get its teeth into in the future.
The dark secret of Itadori’s family
Itadori’s father, Jin, is shown in a flashback arguing angrily with Yuji’s grandfather about Jin’s child with his second wife after the tragic death of his first. A well-known scar can be seen across the forehead of Yuji’s mother when she enters the conversation.
Itadori’s birth mother was hinted to be under the control of Brain by stitches that resembled those of Geto Suguru and Noritoshi Kamo. Theories contend that Itadori was the product of an experiment in which Brain once more seized possession of a woman’s body to deliver human-curse hybrids.
If so, it will shed some light on the riddle surrounding Itadori’s resilience while serving as Sukuna’s vessel. He is a special holder of the King of Curses, and it is uncommon for someone to suppress Sukuna while still having such a strong grasp over cursed energy. It’s hardly surprising that Itadori, who is a hybrid of a curse and a human, was able to control Sukuna despite not knowing anything about curses or even Jujutsu Sorcery.
And that’s not all—if Itadori’s mother had been held captive by Brain, he would also have a number of half-siblings, Choso being the most notable. A woman was captured by Brain in an experiment to give birth to numerous hybrids, and this was proven in Jujutsu Kaisen’s “Death Painting” arc. As a result, Itadori, together with his classmate Nobara Kugisaki, not only killed two of Choso’s brothers, Kechizu and Eso, but also put Choso in the family line.
